BASIC OPERATION
SCART LEAD CONNECTION (NOT SUPPLIED)
A scart lead can be connected at any time. It is recommended to connect your TV and VCR 
in this way as it will provide improved picture and sound quality. Please refer to the connection 
diagram on page 4.
IMPORTANT NOTES ON YOUR VCR AND VIDEO 
TAPES
VIDEO TAPES
If you use only good quality video tapes, generally it will not be necessary to clean the 
video heads.
If poor quality tapes are used, or if a tape is loaded after changing VCR location, oxide 
from the tape may "clog" the video heads. This will cause the playback picture to be 
"snowy", or even disappear.
To remove minor contamination run a video tape in visual search mode. If this fails, you 
will need to have the heads cleaned by a SHARP Service Facility. Please note, if cleaning 
is necessary it is not covered by the guarantee.
Use video tapes which carry the 
 mark.
HOW TO PLAYBACK A VIDEO TAPE
