Notes on the LP mode â¢ When you record a tape in the LP mode on your camcorder, we recommend playing the tape on your camcorder. When you play back the tape on other camcorders or VCRs, noise may occur in pictures or sound. â¢ Noise may occur also when you play on your camcorder tapes recorded in the LP mode on other camcorders or VCRs. Notes on ORC setting â¢ Each time you eject the cassette, the ORC setting will be canceled. If necessary, reset the setting. â¢ You cannot use this setting on a tape with the red mark on the cassette exposed. (i. e. the tape is write-protected) â¢ When you set ORC TO SET, a non-recorded section of about 0.1 seconds appears on the tape. However, note that this non-recorded section disappears from the tape when you continue recording from this section. â¢ To check if you have already set the ORC setting, select ORC TO SET in the menu settings. âORC ONâ is displayed if ORC TO SET is already set.
