The service manual when downloaded and printed out was clear and easy to read. The manual is complete with the schematic diagram and technical data. I occasionally require a manual and now having registered with this company I shall order from them in the future.
Hello from Germany - thank you very much for the manual for my Sharp "Searcher" - the handling of your internet area is outstanding..Mike

Using the Remote Control
Point the remote control at the VCPâs remote sensor when operating the VCP. Do not put objects between the remote control and the VCP.
Use only tapes with the mark. Remove any light adhesive stick-on notes from the video cassette tape before putting the tape in the VCP. Removable labels can jam the VCP. Periodic maintenance is required to maintain your VCPâs excellent performance. This VCP has an Automatic Head Cleaner. However, the video heads will require replacement eventually. Only an authorized service center should perform this service.
