excellent value & price! Includes everything you need to know about the NN-C777! I would buy this again.
Very satisfied! I was searching for several days, but nope; till I discovered your webside and there it was at a very reasonable price. Keep up the good work!
Generally speaking good copy; a few pages too hard contrast...
Good service and communication.
I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.
Being a user of older radios of many kinds, preferring them over more modern rigs, this manual was invaluable in the programming of my two. I now know for certain what the assorted buttons functions are, and am very grateful to have found this excellent site. Many thanks for your assistance, Tony.

Make sure that nothing is connected to the DC IN 3V jack. 1 2 Open the battery compartment lid. Insert two size AAA (R03) batteries with correct polarity and close the lid.
Notes on VOR (Voice Operated Recording)
â¢ The VOR system depends on the environmental conditions. If you cannot get the desired results, set VOR to OFF. â¢ When you use the unit in a noisy place, it will stay in the recording mode. If the sound is too soft, on the contrary, the unit will not start recording. Set VOR to H (high) or L (low) depending on the conditions.

To take out the batteries (see Fig. A-(b)) If the battery compartment lid is accidentally detached (see Fig. A-(c)) Attach it as illustrated. When to replace the batteries For M-800V Replace the batteries with new ones when the REC/BATT lamp dims. For M-850V Replace the batteries with new ones when the BATT lamp goes off and the E lamp flashes. Notes
â¢ The unit will play back normally for a while, even after the E lamp flashes. However, replace the batteries as soon as you can. If you do not, the playback cannot be made with normal sound, noise may be recorded and the recorded sound will not be loud enough (M-850V only). â¢ In the following cases you do not need to replace the batteries: â if the REC/BATT lamp, or BATT lamp flashes with the playback sound when you turn up the volume. â if the E lamp lights momentarily when the tape starts running or at the end of the tape (M-850V only). â if the E lamp flashes during FF (CUE) or REW (REVIEW) (M-850V only).
To monitor the sound Connect an earphone to the EAR jack. The monitor volume cannot be adjusted by VOL. To prevent a cassette from being accidentally recorded over (see Fig. B-(c)) Break out and remove the cassette tabs. To reuse the cassette for recording, cover the tab hole with adhesive tape.

Recording cue markers (M-850V only)
While recording, you can record a special signal on the tape to mark a specific position. At the desired position, press CUE MARKER to record a signal. The REC lamp flashes and a signal will be recorded on the tape. If you want to record a signal longer than that, press CUE MARKER as long as you want. During cue and review, you will hear the beep sound at the signal position. During playback with the headphones plugged in, you will hear the signal with low frequency sound at the signal position. Notes
â¢ We recommend recording cue markers when there is a break in the sound. â¢ The beep may sound differently depending on the marked position on the tape because the winding speed varies from the beginning to the end of the tape. â¢ There may be cases that recorded sound is distorted in a portion where the CUE MARKER signals are recorded.
