within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert
the user to the presence of uninsulated
“dangerous voltage” within the product’s
enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude
to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
CAUTION:
Please read and retain for your safety.
Electrical energy can perform many useful functions. This TV
set has been engineered and manufactured to assure your
personal safety. But improper use can result in potential
electrical shock or fire hazards. In order not to defeat the
safeguards incorporated in this TV set, observe the following
basic rules for its installation, use and servicing.
And also follow all warnings and instructions marked on your
TV set.
INSTALLATION
The exclamation point within an equilateral
triangle is intended to alert the user to the
presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature
accompanying the appliance.
WARNING: TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK
HAZARDS, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS
TV SET TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
CAUTION:
TO INSURE PERSONAL SAFETY,
OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING RULES
REGARDING THE USE OF THIS
UNIT.
1. Operate only from the power source specified
on the unit.
2. Avoid damaging the AC plug and power cord.
3. Avoid Improper installation and never position
the unit where good ventilation is unattainable.
4. Do not allow objects or liquid into the cabinet
openings.
5. In the event of trouble, unplug the unit and
call a service technician. Do not attempt to
repair it yourself or remove the rear cover.
Changes or modifications not approved by JVC
could void the warranty.
* When you don’t use this TV set for a long
period of time, be sure to disconnect both the
power plug from the AC outlet and antenna for
your safety.
* To prevent electric shock do not use this
polarized plug with an extension cord, receptacle or other outlet unless the blades can be fully
inserted to prevent blade exposure.
1 Your TV set is equipped with a polarized AC line plug (one
blade of the plug is wider than the other).
(POLARIZED-TYPE)
This safety feature allows the plug to fit into the power
outlet only one way. Should you be unable to insert the
plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug.
Should it still fail to fit, contact your electrician.
2 Operate the TV set only from a power source as indicated
on the TV set or refer to the operating instructions for this
information. If you are not sure of the type of power supply
to your home, consult your TV set dealer or local power
company. For battery operation, refer to the operating
instructions.
3 Overloaded AC outlets and extension cords are dangerous, and so are frayed power cords and broken plugs.
They may result in a shock or fire hazard. Call your service
technician for replacement.
4 Do not allow anything to rest on or roll over the power
cord, and do not place the TV set where power cord is
subject to traffic or abuse. This may result in a shock or
fire hazard.
5 Do not use this TV set near water — for example, near a
bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a wet
basement, or near swimming pool, etc.
6 If an outside antenna is connected to the TV set, be sure the
antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810
of the National Electrical Code provides information with respect
to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure,
grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size
of grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge unit,
connection requirements for the grounding electrode.
13 For added protection of the TV set during a lightning storm or
when the TV set is to be left unattended for an extended period
of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the
antenna. This will prevent damage to product due to lightning
storms or power line surges.
14 A TV set and cart combination should be moved with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause
the TV set and cart combination to overturn.
7 An outside antenna system should not be located in the
vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or
power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or
circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme
care should be taken to keep from touching such power
lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
EXAMPLE OF ANTENNA GROUNDING
AS PER NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE
8 TV sets are provided with ventilation openings in the cabinet
to allow heat generated during operation to be released.
Therefore:
— Never block the bottom ventilation slots of a portable TV
set by placing it on a bed, sofa, rug, etc.
— Never place a TV set in a “built-in” enclosure unless
proper ventilation is provided.
— Never cover the openings with a cloth or other material.
— Never place the TV set near or over a radiator or heat register.
9 To avoid personal injury:
— Do not place a TV set on a sloping shelf unless properly secured.
— Use only a cart or stand recommended by the TV set
manufacturer.
— Do not try to roll a cart with small casters across thresholds or deep pile carpets.
— Wall or shelf mounting should follow the manufacturer’s
instructions, and should use a mounting kit approved by
the manufacturer.
SERVICE
15 Unplug this TV set from the wall outlet and refer servicing to
qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
A. When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
B. If liquid has been spilled into the TV set.
C. If the TV set has been exposed to rain or water.
D. If the TV set does not operate normally by following the
operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are
covered in the operating instructions as improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will often
require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore
the TV set to normal operation.
E. If the TV set has been dropped or damaged in any way.
F. When the TV set exhibits a distinct change in performance — this indicates a need for service.
16 Do not attempt to service this TV set yourself as opening or
removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or
other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
17 When replacement parts are required, have the service
technician verify in writing that the replacement parts he uses
have the same safety characteristics as the original parts.
Use of manufacturer’s specified replacement parts can
prevent fire, shock, or other hazards.
18 Upon completion of any service or repairs to this TV set,
please ask the service technician to perform the safety check
described in the manufacturer’s service literature.
19 When a TV set reaches the end of its useful life, improper
disposal could result in a picture tube implosion. Ask a
qualified service technician to dispose of the TV set.
USE
10 Caution children about dropping or pushing objects into the TV set
through cabinet openings. Some internal parts carry hazardous
voltages and contact can result in a fire or electrical shock.
11 Unplug the TV set from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do
not use liquid or an aerosol cleaner.
12 Never add accessories to a TV set that has not been designed for
this purpose. Such additions may result in a hazard.
20 Note to CATV system installer.
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer’s
attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides
guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies
that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding
system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry
as practical.
PRECAUTIONS ABOUT VIDEO
Before operating the video unit, please read the precautions on this page.
Precautions for Recording TV
Programs
Precautions About Moistur
Condensation
About Copyright
The recordings you make from TV programs or prerecorded tapes cannot be used without permission
from the copyright holders, except when they are
used solely for personal enjoyment.
What is Moisture Condensation?
When you put cold water into a glass, water droplets
form on its surface. This phenomenon is called
moisture condensation.
If Moisture Condensation Occurs
The video unit may fail to operate, or may operate
erratically potentially damaging the unit and video
cassettes.
When Does Condensation Occur?
• When equipment is moved from a colder to a
warmer place.
• Immediately after a room heater is started.
• When the unit is exposed to a cold air flow (like
from an air conditioner)
• In high humidity or when steam is present.
To Prevent Condensation
• Wait about an hour before operating the unit so
that it can become accustomed to the room
conditions.
• Provide proper ventilation.
Trial Recording Before Making Important
Recordings
Make a trial recording before an important program
to be sure that you can record and playback audio
and video properly.
Disclaimer:
JVC assumes no liability for failure to record or
playback audio and video properly with this unit.
Precautions About Video Cassettes
Keep these points in mind while working with video
cassettes.
Recording
• If you record on a previously recorded tape, the
original content will be automatically erased.
• Video cassettes cannot be reversed or “flipped
over” like audio cassettes.
Handling Cassettes Properly
• To store cassettes, place them inside their cases.
The cases should then be stored vertically.
• Do not drop cassettes, or give them any other
hard shock.
• Rewind cassettes before storing.
• Do not repeatedly load and unload tapes without
running them in between.
Do Not Store in the Following Places
• Exposed to direct sunlight or near a heating
device.
• Exposed to excessive humidity, smoke, or dust.
• Near a strong magnet (including speakers).
Prevent Accidental Erasur
e
Remove the small plastic tab at the rear of the
cassette. Without this tab, the cassette cannot be
used for recording. It is recommended that you
remove the tabs from important cassettes to prevent
accidental erasure. To record on a cassette whose
tabs have ben removed, cover the tab hole with two
layers of adhesive tape.
Video Heads beginning to get dirty
e
If the unit fails to operate or operates poorly and you
think condensation may be the cause, turn the unit’s
power off and wait a few hours before trying to
operate the unit again.
Enjoying Clear Video
Cleaning the Video Heads
After a long, or frequent use, the video heads inside
the unit may become dirty, possibly resulting in poor
picture quality. To prevent this from happening, it is
recommended you clean the unit frequently with a
head cleaning cassette (TCL-2 or 3, sold
separately).
If Video Quality is Still Poor After Cleaning
Try cleaning the unit two or three times instead of
just once. If the repeated cleaning still fails to
produce better picture quality, an internal
malfunction may be the cause. Call your local dealer
for servicing.

CONNECTIONS CHECKLIST — READ ME FIRST!
The Connections Checklist — Read Me First! section of this guide is a list of ideas to keep in mind
when you set out to perform your connections. It is designed to help us not-so-technicallyadvanced individuals. If you read this section, and can’t identify the plugs, connectors, and
components you have, do not be afraid to seek help.
1) Always refer to the connection instructions in the user’s
guide for your components first! The manufacturer will
provide the most detailed information about their products.
A/V input plug
2) Know your jacks and plugs — most are color coded:
• Yellow plugs are Video connections
• Red plugs are Right Audio connections
• White or black plugs are Left Audio (Mono) connections (if your camcorder is a stereo model, use a
stereo-to-monaural conversion cable to connect to the
Combo unit. Conversion cables may be purchased
separately.)
3) Perform one hookup at a time. If you have many
accessories to connect, make sure each connection is
correct by checking to see that it works properly before
attempting the next connection.
4) Unplug the power cord between each connection.

Some Sound Advice
You can tell if a program is broadcast in stereo by the position of the ON AIR arrow in the MTS
menu. Unfortunately, it is common for some cable companies to squash the transmission of
stereo programs to mono because they only have mono equipment. If connected to a cable
system, the sound is at the mercy of that cable company — if they broadcast in mono, you
receive mono sound regardless of the original stereo programming.
Fortunately, most programs that are broadcast in stereo are aired on the major television
networks. If you connect your TV to an antenna instead of cable, and set the tuner mode in the
Auto Tuner Setup to “Air” instead of “Cable,” you will be able to pick up stereo broadcasts in
stereo.

NOTES:
Recording
speeds
This VCR allows for
recording and
playback at two
different tape

EP - Extended Play
This setting records
and plays back at
1/3 the SP speed
(for example a 120
