Dear Customer,
Thank you for purchasing the JVC VHS video cassette recorder. Before use, please read the safety information and precautions
contained in the following pages to ensure safe use of your new VCR.
CAUTIONS
CAUTION
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
DO NOT OPEN
CAUTION:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK.
DO NOT REMOVE COVER (OR BACK).
NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE.
REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL.
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, 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.
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
HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS
UNIT TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
CAUTION:
This video cassette recorder should be used with AC
120V`, 60Hz only.
To prevent electric shocks and fire hazards, DO NOT use
any other power source.
CAUTION:
TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK, MATCH WIDE
BLADE OF PLUG TO WIDE SLOT, FULLY INSERT.
ATTENTION:

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.
CAUTION:
Changes or modifications not approved by JVC could void
user's authority to operate the equipment.
Failure to heed the following precautions may result in
damage to the VCR, remote control or video cassette.
1. DO NOT place the VCR . . .
... in an environment prone to extreme temperatures or
humidity.
... in direct sunlight.
... in a dusty environment.
... in an environment where strong magnetic fields are
generated.
... on a surface that is unstable or subject to vibration.
2. DO NOT block the VCR’s ventilation openings.
3. DO NOT place heavy objects on the VCR or remote control.
4. DO NOT place anything which might spill on top of the
VCR or remote control.
5. AVOID violent shocks to the VCR during transport.
**MOISTURE CONDENSATION
Moisture in the air will condense on the VCR when you move it
from a cold place to a warm place, or under extremely humid
conditions—just as water droplets form on the surface of a glass
filled with cold liquid. Moisture condensation on the head drum
will cause damage to the tape. In conditions where condensation may occur, keep the VCR’s power turned on for a few
hours to let the moisture dry before inserting a tape.
**ABOUT HEAD CLEANING
Accumulation of dirt and other particles on the video heads
may cause the playback picture to become blurred or interrupted. Be sure to contact your nearest JVC dealer if such
troubles occur.

ANTENNA INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS
1. Outdoor Antenna Grounding
INSTALLATION
1. Grounding or Polarization
(A) Your product may be equipped with a polarized alternatingcurrent line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the
other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way.
This is a safety feature.
If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact
your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not
defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
(B) Your product may be equipped with a 3-wire grounding-type
plug, a plug having a third (grounding) pin. This plug will
only fit into a grounding-type power outlet. This is a safety
feature.
If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact
your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not
defeat the safety purpose of the grounding-type plug.
2. Power Sources
Operate your product only from the type of power source
indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of
power supply to your home, consult your product dealer or
local power company. If your product is intended to operate
from battery power, or other sources, refer to the operating
instructions.
3. Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral
convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or
electric shock.
4. Power Cord Protection
Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely
to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against
them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from the product.
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the
product, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as
to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up
static charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with regard to proper
grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of
the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
connectors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to
grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding
electrode.
2. Lightning
For added protection for this product during a lightning storm,
or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of
time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna
or cable system. This will prevent damage to the product due to
lightning and power-line surges.
3. Power Lines
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.

INITIAL SETTINGS
Plug & Play
Auto Clock Set/Auto Tuner Set
ATTENTION
If you use a cable box, Plug & Play will not function; set
the clock and tuner channels manually. (Z pg.10 – 14)
The Plug & Play function sets the clock and tuner channels
automatically when power is first connected to the VCR. The
antenna cable must be connected for the Plug & Play function.
The time and date can be set automatically from clock setting
data that is transmitted by one of the regular TV broadcast
channels. We call this TV channel the “Host Channel” and it is
a PBS channel in your area.
1
PLUG & PLAY SETUP
Connect the antenna cable to the VCR (Z pg. 6). Then
connect the VCR’s power plug to an AC outlet. Do not
power on the VCR. The clock and tuner channels will
be set automatically.
NOTES:
IMPORTANT
● Don’t press any buttons on the VCR or remote while
Plug & Play is in progress.
● If you perform Plug & Play successfully, there’s no need to
perform the Clock (Z pg. 10) and Tuner (Z pg. 13)
procedures. If, however, you want to add or delete
channels, refer to “Add Or Delete A Channel” on page 14.
During Initial Auto Clock Set
"Auto" blinks.
● Auto clock set is performed first. The auto clock set
function scans all the channels received by your VCR
to find the Host Channel and then sets the clock.
"Auto" blinks on the front display panel during Auto
clock set.
● Auto channel set is performed next. The auto channel
set function scans all the channels that are receivable
by your VCR. It then automatically assigns each
receivable channels to the CH5∞ (+/–) buttons. It
skips non-receivable channels. During auto channel
set the channel numbers are displayed as they are
scanned and set.
● When Plug & Play has been completed successfully the
correct time is displayed.
● If an incorrect time or "– –:– –" appears on the display
panel, see "What To Do If Plug & Play Has Failed"
below.
During Auto Channel Set
The channel numbers are displayed
as they are scanned and set.
Plug & Play Completed
The current time (including
AM/PM) is displayed.
* If an incorrect time or "– –:– –" appears on the display panel, see "What To Do If Plug & Play Has Failed" below.
INFORMATION
● If "AUTO CLOCK" is set to "ON" at the Clock Set screen on page 11, the clock will be adjusted automatically by the host
channel every hour on the hour (except for 11:00 PM, midnight, 1:00 AM and 2:00 AM) by the incoming PBS channel clock
setting data. (This automatic clock adjustment can only be performed when the VCR’s power is turned off. The clock will be
adjusted on the hour based on the time displayed on the VCR, not on the actual real time.) The default setting of "AUTO
CLOCK" is "ON".
● If the memory backup fails, because of a power outage or because the AC was removed from the VCR, Plug & Play will be
performed when power is restored to the VCR.
What To Do If Plug & Play Has Failed
● If an incorrect time is displayed on the front display panel, you may be receiving the clock setting data of a PBS channel from
an adjacent time zone, or an incorrect PBS channel from a cable TV system. In this case, perform the Semi-Auto (Z pg. 11) or
Manual Clock Set (Z pg. 12) procedure. Auto channel set has already taken place and it need not be set again.
● If “- -:- -” appears on the display, your antenna cable may not be connected to the VCR or there may not be a Host PBS signal
available in your area. Ensure that the antenna cable is connected correctly. Then power on and power off the VCR; the Plug &
Play function will be automatically reactivated and "Auto" will be displayed on the VCR's front panel. If Plug & Play is not
performed but the antenna cable is connected correctly, perform the Manual Clock Set procedure (Z pg. 12). Auto channel
set has not yet taken place, so please also perform the “Set Receivable Channels” procedure (Z pg. 13).

This procedure is required if you receive your TV channels
through a cable box (descrambler). The Controller allows the
VCR to automatically switch the cable box channel during
timer-recording. The Controller is effective for recording shows
that have been programmed using the VCR Plus+ system
(Z pg. 40) or Express Timer Programming (Z pg. 44).

Suggested Location
Place the cable box on top of the VCR. Attach the VCR's
Controller to the top of the VCR with the Controller’s transmitter
pointed towards the cable box’s remote sensor.
ATTENTION:
The Controller can also control a DBS receiver. If both a cable
box and a DBS receiver are used, position the controller so its
signal reaches the remote control sensors of both the cable box
and DBS receiver.

NOTES:
● Although the supplied Controller is compatible with many
different cable box brands, it is possible that it will not work
with your cable box.
● If your cable box doesn’t respond to any code between 1 and
25, you can’t use the Controller to change cable box
channels. In this case, make sure to leave the cable box
turned on and tuned to the proper channel before the
scheduled start of timer recording.
Please contact your cable company about the possibility of
exchanging your current cable box with one that is compatible
with your VCR.
● The VCR can only change the cable box channel through the
Controller during timer recording.
● If your cable box is one that can’t be operated with a remote
control (because it has no remote sensor), you can’t use the
Controller to change its channels. Make sure to leave the
cable box turned on and tuned to the proper channel before
the scheduled start of timer recording.
● If the VCR's memory backup expires because of a power
failure, set the cable box output channel and brand again.
● If you are unable to set the Controller, please contact JVC toll
free at 1-800-252-5722.

and confirm where a scene ends, and then begin recording
from there:
● When starting to record in the middle of a tape on which
a recording has already been made.
● When you have made a recording on a tape, then played
that recording back in order to check it, and now wish to
continue recording.
● When you lost power or the batteries died while you

function is operative.
● To display the Video Calibration screen, “SUPERIMPOSE” must be set to "ON" or the Video Calibration
screen will not appear (Z pg. 25).
ATTENTION
n As calibration takes place before recording actually starts,
there is a delay of about 7 seconds after REC and PLAY on
the remote, or REC on the VCR's front panel, are pressed.
To make sure you record the desired scene or program
completely, first perform the following steps:
1) Press and hold PAUSE, and press REC to engage the
RECORD PAUSE mode.
● The VCR then automatically checks the condition of
the tape and, after about 7 seconds, re-enters
RECORD PAUSE.
2) Press PLAY to start recording.
n If you want to bypass Video Calibration and start
recording right away, set "VIDEO CALIBRATION" to
"OFF" in step 4 of the Preparation procedure (Z pg. 34).

S-VHS ET
This facility allows recording with S-VHS picture quality on
VHS cassettes. You can play back those cassettes recorded
in S-VHS ET on a VCR equipped with S-VHS ET.
NOTES:
● To obtain the highest quality recording and playback
pictures over a longer period on this model, S-VHS
recording on S-VHS tape is recommended.
● You can play back S-VHS ET recordings not only on this
VCR but also on another VHS VCR equipped with S-VHS
ET.
* It is recommended to specifically label S-VHS ET
recordings so you can easily distinguish them from
regular VHS recordings.
● S-VHS ET recordings can also be played back on an SVHS VCR or a VHS VCR equipped with SQPB (S-VHS
QUASI PLAYBACK) function. However, there may be
cases where S-VHS ET playback is not possible on a
particular VCR.
● Frequent still, frame-by-frame and slow-motion playback
may damage the tape and cause picture degradation.
● With some tapes, better picture quality may not be
obtained even with S-VHS ET recording. It is recommended that you do test record beforehand to make sure
whether better results can be obtained.
● High Grade tapes are recommended for superior results.
● Make sure that "VIDEO CALIBRATION" is set to "ON" at
the Function screen (Z pg. 34).
● During S-VHS ET playback, noise may appear depending
on tape quality.
● Noise may appear during still, frame-by-frame and slowmotion playback.
● If the playback picture becomes blurred or interrupted,
use a cleaning cassette.

S-VHS allows you make high resolution video recordings
when dubbing from one VCR to another.
You can edit from VHS to S-VHS, from S-VHS to VHS, or
from S-VHS to S-VHS.
● From VHS to S-VHS: Record VHS playback signals in the SVHS mode. Although the picture quality is inherently
limited by the orignal VHS source material, the edited tape
has better picture quality than those made by VHS-to-VHS
editing.
● From S-VHS to VHS: Because the picture quality of the
source material is very high, the edited tape has better
picture quality than those made by VHS-to-VHS editing.
● From S-VHS to S-VHS: A high resolution copy is made of
a high resolution original S-VHS tape with minimal
picture degradation. This is the preferred method of
video dubbing.

PLAYBACK
RECORDING
Q. What happens if the end of the tape is reached
during playback or search?
A. The tape is automatically rewound to the beginning.
Q. When I pause and then resume a recording, the end
of the recording before the pause is overlapped by
the new recording. Why does this happen?
