3 Precautions
The rating plate and the safety caution are on the rear of the unit.
WARNING: DANGEROUS VOLTAGE IN-SIDE
WARNING: TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS UNIT TO
RAIN OR MOISTURE.
The STANDBY/ON
button does not completely shut off mains power from the unit,
but switches operating current on and off.
This unit is produced to comply with Standard IEC 60065.
When the equipment is installed in a cabinet or a shelf, make sure that it has sufficient space
on all sides to allow for ventilation (10 cm or more on both side, on top and at the rear.)
When discarding batteries, environmental problems must be considered and the local rules
or laws governing the disposal of these batteries must be followed strictly.
Failure to heed the following precautions may result in damage to the player, remote
control or video cassette player.
1. DO NOT place the player . . .
... in an environment prone to extreme temperatures or humidity.
... in direct sunlight.
... in a dusty environment.
... in an environment where strong magnetic fields are generated.
... on a surface that is unstable or subject to vibration.
2. DO NOT block the player's ventilation openings or holes.
(If the ventilation openings or holes are blocked by a newspaper or cloth, etc., the heat may
not be able to get out.)
3. DO NOT place heavy objects on the player or remote control.
4. DO NOT place anything which might spill on top of the player or remote control.
If water or liquid is allowed to enter this equipment, fire or electric shock may be caused.)
5. DO NOT expose the apparatus to dripping or splashing.
6. DO NOT use this equipment in a bathroom or places with water. Also DO NOT place
any containers filled with water or liquids (such as cosmetics or medicines, flower vases,
potted plants, cups, etc.) on top of this unit.
7. DO NOT place any naked flame sources, such as lighted candles, on the apparatus.
8. AVOID violent shocks to the player during transport.
Beware of moisture condensation
Moisture in the air will condense on the VCP when you move it from a cold place to a warm
place, or under extremely humid conditions -- just as water droplets form on the surface of
a glass filled with cold liquid. Moisture condensation on the head drum will cause damage to
the tape. In conditions where condensation may occur, keep the VCP's power turned on for
a few hours to let the moisture dry.
When transporting
7 Be sure to remove cassette from VCP before packing.
7 Avoid violent shocks to the VCP during packing and transport.

About Head cleaning
7 If the picture playback becomes blurred, it does not mean that the recorded program has
been erased.
7 Dirt accumulated on the video heads after long periods of use causes such troubles. In
this case, head cleaning requiring highly technical care is necessary.
7 For head cleaning, consult the nearest JVC dealer.
Connect the player's AUDIO and
VIDEO OUT connectors to the
recorder's AUDIO and VIDEO IN
connectors.
Put the player in the Play mode.
Put the recorder in the Record mode.

3 Precautions
The rating plate and the safety caution are on the rear of the unit.
WARNING: DANGEROUS VOLTAGE IN-SIDE
WARNING: TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS UNIT TO
RAIN OR MOISTURE.
The STANDBY/ON
button does not completely shut off mains power from the unit,
but switches operating current on and off.
This unit is produced to comply with Standard IEC 60065.
When the equipment is installed in a cabinet or a shelf, make sure that it has sufficient space
on all sides to allow for ventilation (10 cm or more on both side, on top and at the rear.)
When discarding batteries, environmental problems must be considered and the local rules
or laws governing the disposal of these batteries must be followed strictly.
Failure to heed the following precautions may result in damage to the player, remote
control or video cassette player.
1. DO NOT place the player . . .
... in an environment prone to extreme temperatures or humidity.
... in direct sunlight.
... in a dusty environment.
... in an environment where strong magnetic fields are generated.
... on a surface that is unstable or subject to vibration.
2. DO NOT block the player's ventilation openings or holes.
(If the ventilation openings or holes are blocked by a newspaper or cloth, etc., the heat may
not be able to get out.)
3. DO NOT place heavy objects on the player or remote control.
4. DO NOT place anything which might spill on top of the player or remote control.
If water or liquid is allowed to enter this equipment, fire or electric shock may be caused.)
5. DO NOT expose the apparatus to dripping or splashing.
6. DO NOT use this equipment in a bathroom or places with water. Also DO NOT place
any containers filled with water or liquids (such as cosmetics or medicines, flower vases,
potted plants, cups, etc.) on top of this unit.
7. DO NOT place any naked flame sources, such as lighted candles, on the apparatus.
8. AVOID violent shocks to the player during transport.
Beware of moisture condensation
Moisture in the air will condense on the VCP when you move it from a cold place to a warm
place, or under extremely humid conditions -- just as water droplets form on the surface of
a glass filled with cold liquid. Moisture condensation on the head drum will cause damage to
the tape. In conditions where condensation may occur, keep the VCP's power turned on for
a few hours to let the moisture dry.
When transporting
7 Be sure to remove cassette from VCP before packing.
7 Avoid violent shocks to the VCP during packing and transport.

mediately, set "B.E.S.T." to "OFF".
The B.E.S.T. (Biconditional Equalized Sig-
nal Tracking) system checks the condition
of the tape in use during recording and
playback, and compensates to provide the
highest-possible recording and playback
pictures. The default setting for both
recording and playback is ``ON''.
Recording
The video cassette player assesses the
quality of the tape once you initiate record-
ing.
7 The player spends approximately 7 sec-
onds assessing the condition of the tape,
then begins recording.
Notes:
· The B.E.S.T. system works only after a
tape has been inserted and the Record
mode is first initiated. It does not work
during recording.
· Once the cassette is ejected, the
B.E.S.T. data is cancelled.
The next time the cassette is used for
recording, B.E.S.T. is re-performed.
Playback
The video cassette player assesses the
quality of the tape once you initiate playback.
When watching a tape recorded with
B.E.S.T. set to on, it is recommended that
you leave B.E.S.T. on during playback as
well.
7 The player adjusts the playback picture
quality based on the quality of the tape
in use.
7 B.E.S.T. is active during Auto Tracking.
Note:
When watching a rental tape, or one re-
corded on another video player, set B.E.S.T.
to on or off to your preference.
