Mains Supply (AC 230 VÓ, 50 Hz only)
DO NOT cut off the mains plug from this equipment. If the plug fitted is not
suitable for the power points in your home or the cable is too short to reach
a power point, then obtain an appropriate safety approved extension lead or
consult your dealer.
BE SURE to replace the fuse only with an identical approved type, as
originally fitted, and to replace the fuse cover.
If nonetheless the mains plug is cut off ensure to remove the fuse and
dispose of the plug immediately, to avoid a possible shock hazard by
inadvertent connection to the mains supply.
DO NOT make any connection to the terminal which is marked with the letter
E or by the safety earth symbol or coloured green or green-and-yellow.
The wires in the mains lead on this product are coloured in accordance
with the following code:
Blue to N (Neutral) or Black
Brown to L (Live) or Red
As these colours may not correspond with the coloured markings
identifying the terminals in your plug proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which
is marked with the letter N or coloured black.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter L or coloured red.
IF IN DOUBT — CONSULT A COMPETENT ELECTRICIAN.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
Do not use this unit in direct sunlight where it would be exposed to high temperatures above 40°C (104°F).
1. Avoid installing in the following places
● Where it could be subject to vibrations.
● Where it is excessively humid, such as in a bathroom.
● Where it could be magnetized by a magnet or speaker.
2. Pay attention to dust
Be sure to close the CD holder or CD tray so that dust does not
collect on the lens.
3. Condensation
In the following cases, condensation may occur in the unit, in which
case the unit may not operate correctly.
● In a room where a heater has just been switched on.
● In a place where there is smoke or high humidity.
● When the unit is moved directly from a cold to a warm room.
In these cases, set the
button to STANDBY and wait 1 or 2
hours before use.
4. Volume setting
CDs produce very little noise compared with analog sources. If the
volume level is adjusted for these sources, the speakers may be
damaged by the sudden increase of output level. Therefore, lower
the volume before operation and adjust it as required during play.
5. Safety mechanism
This unit incorporates a safety interlock mechanism which switches
the laser beam on and off, so that when the CD holder or CD tray is
open, the laser beam stops automatically.
6. Do not place cassette tapes, etc. near the speakers
Since there are magnets in the speakers, do not place tapes or magnetic cards on them as recorded data could be erased.
7. Keep this unit away from your TV
When this unit is used near a TV, the TV picture could be distorted.
If this happens, move this unit away from the TV. If this does not
correct the situation, avoid using this unit when the TV is turned on.
8. Cleaning the cabinet
If the cabinet gets dirty, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth. Never use
benzine or thinner as these could damage the surface finish.
9. When listening with headphones
● Do not listen at high volumes as this could damage your hearing.
● For safety, do not drive while listening to this unit.

● First connect the car adapter to the DC IN 12 V jack, not the cigarette
lighter socket, because shorting of a plug on the car may cause the
fuse to blow out. In addition, be careful not to make a short-circuit
between the plugs.
● When using a car battery, be sure to use the specified car adapter
(JVC model CA-R120E) to prevent mishaps or damage resulting
from different polarity design.
Note:
When there is a power failure or the AC power cord is disconnected,
the timer/clock setting is erased from memory. Reset the clock when

received.
MONO:
Set to this position when FM stereo reception is noisy.
When another station is tuned to in the MONO mode, the unit automatically enters Auto mode.
Presetting stations (using the remote control unit)
30 stations in FM band and 15 stations in AM (MW/LW) band can be
preset as follows:
● Example: (Presetting an FM station broadcasting on 103.5 MHz to
preset button “15”)
⁄
Seek tuning
Press the 4 or ¢ button for one second or more. The unit enters
the seek tuning mode to tune in the nearest station automatically, so
the broadcast can be heard. In AM operation, the frequency moves
continuously from the MW to the LW band and vice versa.
Manual tuning
Each time the 4 or ¢ button is pressed, the unit steps through the
current frequency band. Tuning is done in steps of 50 kHz for FM and 9
kHz for AM (MW/LW).
In AM operation, the tuned frequency moves continuously from the MW
(522–1,629 kHz) to the LW (144–288 kHz) band and vice versa.
Press to move to higher frequency.
Press to move to lower frequencies.
Notes:
● When seek tuning to the required station is not possible because the
broadcast signal is too weak, press the 4 or ¢ button momentarily to perform manual tuning.
● When the power is set to STANDBY, or another mode (TAPE, CD or
AUX) is selected, the last tuned frequency is stored in memory. When
the power is switched on again and TUNER/BAND button is pressed,
the same station will be tuned to.
Auto preset tuning (using the remote control unit)
This function scans the current band, detecting frequencies used to

dirty...
● Sound quality deteriorates.
● The output sound level drops.
