÷ PRECAUTIONS MOISTURE CONDENSATION DO NOT OPERATE ANY FUNCTIONS ON THIS UNIT FOR AT LEAST TWO OR THREE HOURS WHEN MOISTURE IN THE AIR CONDENSES ON IT . LET THE UNIT STAND WITH POWER ON ( SEE BELOW ) . • WHAT IS MOISTURE CONDENSATION ? When a cold liquid is poured into a glass , for example , water vapor in the air will condense on the surface of the glass . This is called moisture condensation . • MOISTURE WILL CONDENSE ON THE UNIT IN THE FOLLOWING CASES ; • When you move the unit from a cold to a warm place . • After heating a cold room or under extremely humid conditions . • WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE THE ABOVE CONDITIONS , " DEW " appears on the screen and all the function buttons except the EJECT button ( or the STOP / EJECT button on the unit ) are made non - operational to protect the video heads .

÷ VIDEO HEAD CLEANING VIDEO HEAD CLOGGING The video heads are the means by which the TV / VCR reads the picture from the tape during playback . In the unlikely event that the heads become dirty enough to be clogged , no picture will be played back . This can easily be determined if , during playback of a known good tape , there is good sound , but no picture ( picture is extremely snowy ) . If this is the case , have the TV / VCR checked by qualified service personnel . Good Picture Snowy Picture VIDEO HEAD CLEANING AUTO HEAD CLEANING system cleans the video heads automatically when a cassette is inserted or ejected to prevent dirt from accumulating on the heads . However , manual head cleaning is needed if the picture on playback is still unclear although the picture on program is normal . This failure signifies that the head is getting dirty and occurs when playing poor quality or damaged tapes . If the heads require cleaning , use a high quality head cleaning system or have them cleaned professionally . ÷ ÷ NOTES : • DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN THE VIDEO HEADS OR SERVICE THE UNIT BY REMOVING THE TOP COVER . • Video heads may eventually wear out and should be replaced when they fail to produce clear pictures . • To help prevent video head clogging , use only good quality VHS tapes . Discard worn out tapes . 52 T09084 ( 48 - 54 ) 52 ( _ 7 / 5 / 00 , 3 : 08 PM
