Question about Panasonic AG-DS555 S-VHS VCR
I am a new owner of a nearly brand new PANASONIC AG-DS555 unit. I love this thing. However, I am flying blind with the controls and settings as this unit did not come with an operating manual. My problem is that during playback of some VHS tapes (VHS and S-VHS), I occasionally get what appears to be audio clipping where the sound just cuts out completely. No distortion, just completely quiet. (Sometimes this occurs when there is a very subtle glitch on the tape but not always...sometimes the tape shows no problems. BTW, my older Toshiba 6-head VCR plays the audio fine). Anyway, in the lighted display panel on the front below the lit HiFi graphic, I notice the word LIMITER. I am wondering if one of the audio selections is incorrectly set. Is there a way to bypass or adjust what appears to be some kind of audio clipping (limiting)? There are lots of settings available on this pro VCR. Sorry for the amateur question, but without the manual, I am just not sure if I have everything set up properly. This thing puts out a beautiful picture, perfect still frames, and very nice audio. I just need to figure out the occasional audio clipping. Any help or advice, or can someone point me to an operating manual in original form or PDF. Thanks in advance for your help. Paul
Have you tried the Panasonic site, they have PDF (free) of user manuals?
