"REC/PAUSE" Button 
This button is used to control the camcorder. When this button is pressed with the camcorder set to the 
recording mode, the tape runs to start recording. "REC" appears in the viewfinder. 
When this button is pressed again, " " appears instead of "REC" and the tape stops and the camcorder enters 
the record/ pause (stand-by) mode. 
NOTE: This button may be also used to display a still picture during playback mode. 
Power Zoom Switch/"TRACKING" Control 
• This switch performs zooming electrically.  
   "W": Picture becomes wider gradually. 
   "T": Picture becomes telescopic gradually.  
• Used when playing a tape recorded on another VCR. Adjust for best picture. Ejecting the cassette returns the 
tracking to the normal position.
