This was a hard to find manual. When I did find it , some sites wanted way too much for the file.
Owner-manual .com had it for a really reasonable price. Not only that but it was sent very quickly and was a quality scanned document, unlike some others I purchased from a different site.
Good job guys!!
Last week I bought a second hand Panasonic AG-7500 SVHS Hi-Fi Video Cassette Recorder. It is a professional machine with many video and audio options. I feared it would be a huge quest to find a manual. I was delighted when I found owner-manuals.com. After payment I received the file to download the next day already. The quality is great. I am very happy. Thanks!
The owner's manual/operating instructions that I purchased was the original factory document and it was in at least three and maybe more languages. I no longer have it because I sold the tape recorder and included the owner's manual/operating instructions and a service/repair manual that I bought on ebay for the new owner.
This manual is very useful. Because pioneer sx-q180 is unhandy to use without manual.

Examples of TV screen display of each video format
When your TV is switchable between PAL/ NTSC
Try play a disc. If the picture is black and white or as shown on the right, stop playback and switch the screen display formats of this unit and the TV to another format. This will improve the played picture quality.
When your TV is compatible only with the PAL format
With certain discs, the playback picture may have black spaces above and below it (as shown on the right). This is because the disc has been recorded in the NTSC format. The screen may be somewhat hard to see but this is not malfunction.
When your TV is compatible only with the NTSC format
With certain discs, the playback picture may be cut above and below it (as shown on the right). This is because the disc has been recorded in the PAL or SECAM format. The screen may be somewhat hard to see but this is not malfunction.
