Cautions
Change or modifications not approved by JVC could void
user's authority to operate the equipment. This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the
FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and
can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment
off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and
receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit
different from that to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV
technician for help.
• BE SURE TO INSERT THE BATTERIES PROPERLY IN
DIRECTIONS.
THE

TOUCHING THE ANTENNA WIRE OR THE TELEVISION
UNDER SUCH CONDITIONS MAY CAUSE ELECTROCUTION.
• KEEP THE TV TUNER SYSTEM AT AN APPROPRIATE
SOUND LEVEL WHILE DRIVING.
DRIVING WITH THE SOUND AT A LEVEL THAT
PREVENTS YOU FROM HEARING SOUNDS OUTSIDE
OF AND AROUND THE VEHICLE MAY CAUSE AN
ACCIDENT.
• ASK A TRAINED TECHNICIAN TO INSTALL THE TV

INSTALLATION AND WIRING REQUIRE TRAINING AND
EXPERIENCE.
* TO BE SAFE, ASK THE SALES OUTLET WHERE YOU
PURCHASED THE TV TUNER SYSTEM TO PERFORM THE

+80°C
–20
–20°C to +80°C
During the summer,
temperatures can
reach as high as
100 °C (212 °F).
When the liquid crystal panel reaches high
temperatures or low temperatures, chemical
changes occur within the liquid crystal panel
which may cause malfunctions.
• There are red spots, blue spots and green
spots on the panel surface. This is a characteristic of liquid crystal panels and is not a
problem.
Spots
• When the temperature is very cold or very hot,
the image may not appear clearly or may
move slowly.
Also, movement of the image may seem to be
out of sync or the image quality may decline in
such environments. Note that this is not a
malfunction or problem.
(usage temperature range: 0 °C to 40 °C (32
°F to 104 °F) )
0 °C (32 °F) or colder
The liquid crystal panel is built with very high
precision technology and has at least 99.99%
effective image pixels. Be aware that on
