WARNING:
CAUTION:
TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK
HAZARDS, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS TV
SET TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
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

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.
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
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.

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.
RF Connectors
1) Refer to the connection instructions in the user’s
guide for each component you plan to connect.
They will provide more detailed information about
their products, and they will tell you what plugs and
cables are required.
2) Most A/V input jacks and plugs are color coded:
• Yellow plugs are Video connections
• Red plugs are for Right Audio connections
• White plugs are Left Audio (Mono) connections
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.
(For example, always start with the RF or Cable
connections, make sure it works, then move on to
video or VCR connections.)
S-Video Plug
A/V Input Plug
4) Unplug the power cord between each connection.
5) Each jack on the back of the TV is labeled. If you
read these instructions and still do not fully understand the connections process, seek assistance.
6) The IR Mouse lets TV Guide Plus+ control your
cable box and/or your VCR. You must place the
transmitter of the IR Mouse in front of the corresponding window on the cable box or VCR.

CONNECTING TO JVC AV COMPU LINK
CAPABLE COMPONENTS
AV Compu Link makes playing video tapes totally automatic. Simply insert a pre-recorded tape* into
the JVC brand VCR, and the VCR automatically turns on and starts playing. At the same time, the
VCR sends an AV Compu Link signal to the television telling it to turn on and switch to the correct
video input.
NOTE: The AV Compu Link cable should be included with the AV Compu Link capable accessory
you intend to connect. If it is not, contact an authorized JVC Service Center for Part # EWP 805-012.
NOTES:
A) The AV Compu Link cable has a male 3.5 mm (mono) mini plug on each end.
B) If your JVC brand VCR has A Code/B Code Remote Control Switching (see your VCR instructions),
using VCR A Code will switch the TV to Video Input 1. If you use Input 1 for Video out from the
cable box, use Input 2 here. Using B Code will switch the TV to Video Input 2.
C) To connect a JVC HiFi receiver or amplifier for a completely automated home theater, see the HiFi
receiver's instructions for detailed hookup diagrams.
* In order for the VCR to start playback automatically, the recording tabs must be removed from the
VHS tape. If the tab is in place, automatic switching starts when you push the VCR PLAY button.
** AV COMPU LINK EX is compatible with the following 1998 receivers: RX-664V, RX-665V, RX-774V,
RX-884V, RX-1024V, and later receiver models.

END OF SETUP
1. A screen telling you that TV Guide Plus+ will be ready for use within 24
hours appears. Make sure that you turn the cable box ON and the VCR
OFF. If you have a system with a cable box, make sure you change the VCR
channel back to where you normally watch or record from the cable box
(typically Channel 03 or 04.)
2. Press the BLUE button to exit setup.
3. Turn the TV off.
4. Data downloading usually takes less than 15 minutes. However, on some
cable systems, this download may take as much as two hours.
NOTE: If you do not have a cable box, you can watch TV while the Host Search
and Download are in progress. Also, note that TV Guide Plus+ will not be
available until the Host Search and download functions are complete. Refer to
page 23 for TV Guide Plus+ messages.
CHANNEL MAPPING
After the data for TV Guide Plus+ is set up, a “channel map” has been created. If there is more than one
cable company servicing your local area, the Host Search will yield the Channel Mapping Screen which will
appear the first time you press the GUIDE/TV button. Essentially, TV Guide Plus+ is asking you to complete
the host search by identifying which cable company you use. Identify your cable company by confirming
which stations actually are found on the channel numbers indicated by TV Guide Plus+.
CHANNEL MAPPING
The Channel Mapping Screen may appear the first time you turn on TV Guide
Plus+, after the Initial Setup download, if the channel map is not identified.
1. Determine which channels the stations displayed are on
(as in this example FAM and WGN).
2. Press GREEN or
to move the cursor left, YELLOW or
to move the cursor right.
3. Press BLUE for Select when the cursor is on the proper
channel numbers.
NOTE: If you do not know at what channel number the listed stations are found, press the round EXIT button on the remote,
go to those channels to check the channel numbers, and then come back to TV Guide Plus+ (by pressing the GUIDE/TV
button) to complete the setup.
SOME VERY IMPORTANT FINAL WORDS ON TV GUIDE PLUS+
NOTE 1: TV Guide Plus+ automatically includes up to 50 channels in the guide. See page 33 “TV Guide Plus+ Channel
Editor” if you have a cable system with more than 50 channels or to customize the list to your level of cable
service.
NOTE 2: If the channels are O.K., but there are no listings of programs, or there are only partial listings, don’t worry, you
just need more data. The time for the next data download is displayed in the blue information box (upper right
corner of TV Guide Plus+ screen when you tune a channel that says, “No Listing”).
NOTE 3: If you use a Cable Box the TV Power must be OFF in order for the data download to work.

TV GUIDE PLUS+ MESSAGES TO THE VIEWER
Once TV Guide Plus+ is set up, you can start enjoying the many features of your new TV! But,
before we jump right into it, there are some operating features of TV Guide Plus+ that you should
be aware of...
DOWNLOADING DA
TA
There are two types of data download — the “Host Search” and “Data Download”.
THE HOST SEARCH — The Host Search is the Download search that we have been discussing thus
far. This search begins automatically once you begin the TV Guide Plus+ Setup. Once completed:
• The TV’s Clock is automatically set to the correct time
• Station ID’s are set via the information that TV Guide Plus+ collects. If you use a cable box,
the station ID's will not be set.
DATA DOWNLOAD — The second type of data download is based on the broadcasting schedule.
Several times a day TV Guide Plus+ will complete a download that updates the data information.
HOST SEARCH MESSAGES
During the initial host search, TV Guide Plus+ information and PIP are not available.
You will get the following message if

As with the program information, the Features and options or categories of TV Guide Plus+ are
also downloadable and therefore these too can change daily. This is really the information

as we come up with even more really good ideas. For now, enjoy!

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 your TV is 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.
