1. CAPACITOR AND RESISTOR REPLACEMENT NOTE

For continuous reliability, regardless of the symptom, ALWAYS check and replace if necessary C701 in the correct mounting position and ALWAYS modify R668/R669 from 10k to 4.7k.
1.1. Open the set and replace C701 "470F 10V" (1-126-925-11)
1.2. Make sure to mount C701 in the correct way, the positive (+) side points to the edge of the MCB. NOTE THAT THE WHITE PRINTING FOR C701 ON THE MCB IS INCORRECT (REVERSE)!
1.3. Replace R668 and R669 "10k" (1-216-675-11) with "4.7k" (1-216-667-11).

2. OPTION DATA SETTINGS
2.1. Connect the unit to the AV input of a television with a SCART connection cable in order to enable the on-screen display.
2.2. Enter the unit into test mode: press the record button on the front panel, then press the menu button on the remote commander for 5 seconds until the option setting display appears on the connected television. The option display has 8 columns and 9 rows with decimal numbers.
2.3. Enter the correct option settings according to the model and model destination. Refer to the option setting table in this document or page 5-6E of the Service Manual.
2.4. The option number is selected with the FF, REW, STOP and PAUSE buttons on the remote commander.
2.5. Pressing the OK (PLAY) button on the remote commander activates the selected option number. An activated option number appears in reverse colour.
2.6. After all required option numbers are activated press the MENU button on the remote commander to save the changes. A message "Please wait" appears for a few seconds after which the setting is completed.
2.7. Turn the power OFF and back ON.
