Introduction
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
13. LIGHTNING
To protect your unit from a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to the
unit due to lightning and power line surges.
14. POWER LINES
An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric
light or power circuits, or where it can fall onto or against such power lines or circuits. When installing an
outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits,
as contact with them might be fatal.
15. OVERLOADING
Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords, as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
16. OBJECT AND LIQUID ENTRY
Do not push objects through any openings in this unit, as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short
out parts that could result in fire or electric shock. Never spill or spray any type of liquid into the unit.
17. OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the unit, be sure the antenna or cable system is
grounded to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges, Section 810 of the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast
and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
conductors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for
the grounding electrode.

18. SERVICING
Do not attempt to service this unit yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous
voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
For example:
a. When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged.
b. If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the unit.
c. If the unit has been exposed to rain or water.
d. If the unit does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that
are covered by the operating instructions, as an improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage
and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the unit to its normal operation.
e. If the unit has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
f . When the unit exhibits a distinct change in performance, this indicates a need for service.

the manufacturer or those that have the same characteristics as the original part.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock or other hazards.
20. SAFETY CHECK
Upon completion of any service or repairs to this unit, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to
determine that the unit is in proper operating condition.
21. HEAT
The product should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other
products (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
22. DISC TRAY
Keep your fingers well clear of the disc tray as it is closing. It may cause serious personal injury.
23. CONNECTING
When you connect the product to other equipment, turn off the power and unplug all of the equipment from
the wall outlet. Failure to do so may cause a product damage. Read the owner's manual of the other equip-
ment carefully and follow the instructions when making any connections.
24. LASER BEAM
Do not look into the opening of the disc tray or ventilation opening of the product to see the source of the
laser beam. It may cause sight damage.
25. DISC
Do not use a cracked, deformed, or repaired disc. These discs are easily broken and may cause serious
personal injury and product malfunction.
26. NOTE TO CABLE TV SYSTEM INSTALLER
This reminder is provided to call the Cable TV system installer's attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that
provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be con-
nected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.
TO USE AC POWER SOURCE
Use the AC polarized line cord provided for operation on AC. Insert
the AC cord plug into a standard 120V 60Hz polarized AC outlet.
Notes:
· Never connect the AC line cord plug to other than the specified
voltage (120V 60Hz). Use the attached power cord only.
· If the polarized AC cord does not fit into a non-polarized AC
outlet, do not attempt to file or cut the blade. It is the user's
responsibility to have an electrician replace the obsolete outlet.
· If you cause a static discharge when touching the unit and the
unit fails to function, simply unplug the unit from the AC outlet
and plug it back in. The unit should return to normal operation.

Notes on handling
When shipping the DVD/VCR, the original shipping
carton and packing materials come in handy. For
maximum protection, repack the unit as it was
originally packed at the factory.
Do not use volatile liquids, such as insect spray, near
the DVD/VCR. Do not leave rubber or plastic products
to contact the DVD/VCR for a prolonged period. They
will leave marks on the finish.
The top and rear panels of the DVD/VCR may
become warm after a long period of use. This is not a
malfunction.
When the DVD/VCR is not in use, be sure to remove
the disc and the video cassette turn off the power.
If you do not use the DVD/VCR for a long period, the
unit may not function properly in the future. Turn on
and use the DVD/VCR occasionally.
Notes on locating
Place the DVD/VCR on a level surface. Do not use it
on a shaky or unstable surface such as a wobbling
table or inclined stand. The loaded disc or the video
tape may become dis-aligned and damage the DVD/
VCR.
When you place this DVD/VCR near a TV, radio, or
VCR, the playback picture may become poor and the
sound may be distorted. In this case, place the DVD/
VCR away from the TV, radio, or VCR.
Notes on cleaning
Use a soft, dry cloth for cleaning.
Use a dry cloth to wipe.
Do not use any type of solvent, such as thinner and
benzine, as they may damage the surface of the
DVD/VCR.
If you use a chemical saturated cloth to clean the unit,
follow that product's instructions.
Notes on moisture condensation
Moisture condensation damages the DVD/VCR.
Please read the following carefully.
Moisture condensation occurs, for example, when you
pour a cold drink into a glass on a warm day. Drops of
water form on the outside of the glass. In the same way,
moisture may condense on the head drum or the optical
pick-up lens inside this unit, one of the most crucial
internal parts of the DVD/VCR.
Moisture condensation occurs during the
following cases.
When you bring the DVD/VCR directly from a cold
place to a warm place.
When you use the DVD/VCR in a room where you
just turned on the heater, or a place where the cold
wind from the air conditioner directly hits the unit.
In summer, when you use the DVD/VCR in a hot and
humid place just after you move the unit from an air
conditioned room.
When you use the DVD/VCR in a humid place.
Do not use the DVD/VCR when moisture
condensation may occur.
If you use the DVD/VCR in such a situation, it may
damage discs and internal parts. Remove the disc or
the video tape, connect the power cord of the DVD/
VCR to the wall outlet, turn on the DVD/VCR, and
leave it for two or three hours. After two or three
hours, the DVD/VCR will have warmed up and
evaporated any moisture. Keep the DVD/VCR

Introduction
DIGITAL VIDEO
About this owner's manual
This owner's manual explains the basic instructions of
this DVD/VCR. Some DVD video discs are produced in a
manner that allows specific or limited operation during
playback. As such, the DVD/VCR may not respond to all
operating commands. This is not a defect in the DVD/
VCR. Refer to instruction notes of discs.
"
" may appear on the TV screen during operation.
A "
" means that the operation is not permitted by the
DVD/VCR or the disc.
For example, sometimes it is unable to stop the
playback of copyright message of the disc when the
STOP ( ) button is pressed. Alternatively, the "
" may
also indicate that the feature is not available for the disc.
Notes on region numbers
The region number of this DVD/VCR is 1. If region
numbers, which stand for their playable area, are printed
on your DVD video disc and you do not find 1 or ALL ,
disc playback will not be allowed by the player. (In this
case, the DVD/VCR will display a message on-screen.)
On Video CDs
This DVD/VCR supports Video CDs equipped with the
PBC (Version 2.0) function. (PBC is the abbreviation of
Playback Control.) You can enjoy two playback
variations depending on types of discs.
· Video CD not equipped with PBC function
(Version 1.1)
Sound and movie can be played on this DVD/VCR in
the same way as an audio CD.
· Video CD equipped with PBC function
(Version 2.0)
In addition to operation of a Video CD not equipped
with the PBC function, you can enjoy playback of
interactive software with search function by using the
menu displayed on the TV screen (Menu Playback).
Some of the functions described in this owner's
manual may not work with some discs.
Playable discs
This DVD/VCR can play the following discs.
· You cannot play discs other than those listed above.
· You cannot play discs of DVD-RAM, DVD-ROM,

· Some CD-R/RWs cannot be played back depending
on the recording conditions.
· This DVD/VCR uses the NTSC color system, and
cannot play DVD video discs recorded in any other
color system (PAL, SECAM, etc.).
Because of problems and errors that can occur during
the creation of DVD and Video CD software and/or the
manufacture of DVD and Video CD discs, Toshiba cannot
guarantee that this DVD/VCR will play every feature of
every DVD bearing the DVD logo and/or every Video CD
bearing the CD logo.

Notes:
· A clear picture will not be obtained by the DVD/VCR unless the antenna signal is good. Connect the antenna to
the DVD/VCR properly.
· For better quality recording, an indoor antenna or a telescopic antenna is not recommended. The use of an outdoor type
antenna is required.
· If you are not sure about the connection, please refer to qualified service personnel.
The DVD/VCR must be connected "between" the antenna and the TV. First, disconnect the antenna from the TV and
connect it to the DVD/VCR. Then connect the DVD/VCR to the TV. Below are 3 common methods of connecting an
antenna system to a DVD/VCR. Find the type of antenna system you are using and follow the connection diagram.
If both VHF and UHF antennas have 300 ohm twin lead (flat) wires, use a combiner having two 300 ohm inputs and
one 75 ohm output.
