Thank you for purchasing the JVC Micro Component System.
We hope it will be a valued addition to your home, giving you years of enjoyment.
Be sure to read this instruction manual carefully before operating your new stereo system.
In it you will find all the information you need to set up and use the system.
If you have any questions about your System not answered in this manual, please contact your dealer.
Features
Here are some of the things that make your System both powerful and easy to use.
■ Types of CD you can play
Many types of compact discs are sold for a variety of uses. The Video CD Player can play the following compact discs.
• Video CD without Playback Control function: for audio and video (moving picture) reproduction, including multiplex sound.
• Video CD with Playback Control function: featuring menu-type operation and super-fine still pictures for audio and video (moving picture) reproduction, including multiplex sound.
• CD Graphics (CD-G): for audio and video (still picture) reproduction, including multiplex sound.
• Digital Audio CD, including single CDs: for audio reproduction
CDs you cannot play: Do not play CD-ROMs on this System. Doing so may generate a noise which can damage your speakers.
■ JVC’s COMPU PLAY feature that, with a single touch, automatically starts playing the radio, Cassette Deck or CD
Player.
■ The System incorporates Active Hyper Bass PRO circuitry to faithfully reproduce low frequency sounds.
■ A 45-station preset capability (15 stations each for FM, AM and SW) in addition to auto-seek and manual tuning.
■ Versatile CD options include repeat, random and program play.
■ Timer functions; Daily Timer and Sleep Timer.
■ Auto-reverse tape function.
■ You can use audio CDs for Karaoke with the voice masking system. When you use video CDs or CD-Gs, you can replace the lead vocal on
your favourite songs with your own.
• Digital Echo applied to your voice through the microphone gives you a professional sound.
How This Manual Is Organized
•
Basic information that is the same for many different functions - e.g. setting the volume - is given in the section ‘Basic Operations’, and
not repeated under each function.
• The names of buttons/controls and display messages are written in all capital letters: e.g. TUNER BAND, “NO DISC”.
• System functions are written with an initial capital letter only: e.g. Normal Play.
Use the table of contents to look up specific information you require.
We’ve enjoyed making this manual for you, and hope it serves you in enjoying the many features built into your System.
IMPORTANT CAUTIONS
1. Installation of the System
■
• Select a place which is level, dry and neither too hot nor too cold. (Between 5°C and 35°C or 41°F and 95°F.)
•
•
Do not place the System too close to a TV because this may cause interference to both products.
Do not use the System where there may be vibrations.
2. Power cord
■
• Do not handle the power cord with wet hands!
•
•
Some power is always consumed as long as the power cord is connected to the wall outlet.
When unplugging the System from the wall outlet, always pull the plug, not the power cord.
3. Malfunctions, etc.
■
• There are no user serviceable parts inside. If there is a problem with your System, unplug the power cord and ask your dealer.
•
Do not put any metallic objects or tools into the System.

When the System is in use, the display shows other items as well.
For simplicity, we show here only the items described in this section.
Recording onto a tape from any of the sound sources is simple. Just
place a tape in the Cassette Deck, have the source ready, make one
or two settings, and you are ready to record. For each source the procedure is a little bit different so we explain each separately. But first,
here are a few things to make your recordings better.
Things To Know Before You Start
Recording —————————————
■ It may be unlawful to record or play back copyrighted
■
■
■
material without the consent of the copyright owner.
When you want to record onto both sides of a tape, you can set
Reverse mode to do so. Recording automatically stops after recording in the 2 direction. Therefore, make sure that the tape direction is 3 when recording with Reverse mode on.
The recording level, which is the volume at which the new tape
is being made, is automatically set correctly, so it is not affected
by the VOLUME control on the System. Nor is it affected by
adjusting the sound effects. Thus, during recording you can adjust the sound you are actually listening to without affecting the
recording level.
Two small tabs on the back of the cassette tape, one for side A
and one for side B, can be removed to prevent accidental erasure
or recording.
Type II detection
slot
Standard Recording
You can record any sound source to tape as follows:
1. Load a blank or erasable tape into the Cas■
sette Deck and wind past the tape leader.
2. Press the REV. MODE button on the Unit if
■
you want to record on both sides of the
tape.
Press the button until the # indicator is lit.
• When using Reverse mode, insert the tape so that it will be
recorded in the forward 3 direction.
3. Check the recording direction for the
■
tape.
Make sure that the Tape Direction indicator is the same as that
for the tape in the Cassette Deck. If the directions are different,
press the TAPE @ # button to correct the tape direction and
then press the e button to stop the tape.
4. Prepare the source, by, for example, tuning
■
in a radio station or turning on connected
auxiliary equipment.
Note: For CD recording, refer to “CD Direct Recording” mentioned on page 18.
Adhesive tape
5. Press the REC button on the Unit.
■
■
■
To record on a cassette with the tabs removed, you must cover
the holes with adhesive tape first. However, when a type II tape
is used, only cover part of the hole as shown, since the other part
of the hole (Type II detection slot) is used to detect the tape
type.
Type I and Type II tapes can be used for recording.
Note: At the start and end of cassette tapes, there is leader tape
which cannot be recorded onto. Thus, when recording CDs or radio
broadcasts, wind on the leader tape first to ensure getting the beginning of the recording.
CAUTION: If a recording you make has excessive
noise or static, the Unit may have been too close
to a TV during the recording. Either turn off the TV
or increase the distance between the TV and the
System.
17
The “TAPE REC” indicator lights up and the System begins recording.
• If the tab of the cassette tape is removed to prevent erasure
or recording, “NO REC” will appear on the display.
Notes for using Reverse mode for recording
•
When recording in Reverse mode, the System automatically stops
when it reaches the end of the reverse 2 direction. To record on both
sides of a tape, make sure that the recording direction for the tape
inserted is forward 3, and that the Tape Direction indicator is also
forward 3, before you start recording.
To Stop at Any Time During the Recording
Process
•
Press the e button.
Recording an AM station to tape
When recording an AM broadcast, beats may be produced which
are not heard when listening to the broadcast. If this happens, press
the AUTO PRESET button on the Remote Control to eliminate the
beats.
1. Set to AM station and start recording.
2. Press the AUTO PRESET button to eliminate the beats.
Each time you press the button, the display changes as shown
below:
CUT-1= CUT-2 = CUT-3 = (back to the beginning)
CD Direct Recording
Everything on the CD goes onto the tape in the order it is on the CD,
or according to the order you have set in a program.
1. Load a cassette into the Cassette Deck
■
and wind past the tape leader.
2. Load a CD.
■
3. Press the CD #¥8 button on the Unit or on
■
the Remote Control.
4. Press the e button.
■
•
If you want to record specific tracks only, program the
tracks beforehand. You can check their total playback time
on the display during programming. (See page 11.)
5. If you want to record on both sides of a
■
tape, press the REV. MODE button on the
Unit until the “#” indicator is lit. Make sure
that the recording direction for the tape and
the Tape Direction indicator is correct. (See
“Notes for using Reverse mode for recording”.)
6. Choose whether to have pauses between
■
If you make a recording with Reverse mode on, the Unit
will record the last song at the end of the first side onto the
next side from its beginning when the song has been recorded more than 12 seconds on the first side.
If the last song has been recorded less than 12 seconds, then
the previous song will again be recorded on the next side as

few hours until the moisture evaporates, unplug
the AC power cord, and then plug it in again.
Cassette Tapes
A dirty CD may not play correctly. If a CD
does become dirty, wipe it with a soft cloth in a
straight line from center to edge.
•
If the tape is loose, it may get stretched, cut, or
caught in the cassette. Take up the slack by
inserting a pencil in one of the reels and rotating.
CAUTION: Do not use any solvent (for example,
conventional record cleaner, spray thinner, benzine, etc.) to clean a CD.
•
Do not touch the tape surface.
General Notes
•
Do not store the tape:
- In dusty places
- In direct sunlight or heat
- In moist areas
- On a TV or speaker
- Near a magnet
