You can also carry out this function using
your VCR controls.

„ Direct Rec
“What You See Is What You Record”
You can easily record to VCR the images
that you are watching on the TV.
For details, read the manual for your VCR.
Use your VCR controls. “DEVICE IS
RECORDING” is displayed.
In the following situations, the VCR
will stop recording if the TV is turned
off, if the TV channel or input is
changed, or if the menu is displayed
on the TV:
• when recording images from an external
device connected to the TV (for example
a camcorder)
• when recording a TV channel after it has
been unscrambled on a decoder
• when recording a TV channel by using the
TV’s output because the VCR’s own
tuner cannot properly receive that
channel.
You cannot carry out Direct Rec using your
TV’s control.
Generally, the VCR cannot record a TV
channel that it cannot receive properly on its
own tuner, even if you can view that TV
channel on the TV. However, some VCRs
can record a TV channel by using the TV’s
output if that channel can be viewed on the
TV. For details, see your VCR instruction
manual.

CH/CC numbers
• When two CH/CC numbers correspond to one Channel number, choose either one according to
the current COUNTRY setting. When the COUNTRY setting is other than FRANCE, choose a
two-digit CH/CC number. When the COUNTRY setting is FRANCE, choose a three-digit CH/
CC number.
• Find the CH/CC number (CC110 to CC161) corresponding to the TV channel (SECAM-L
system) from a French cable TV station, based on the broadcast frequency of the TV channel.
When you do not know the broadcast frequency, please contact the cable TV station.
• The CH/CC numbers of CH102-CH169 and CC110-CC161 correspond to the TV channels
being broadcast by a SECAM-L system. The other CH/CC numbers correspond to the TV
channels being broadcast by a method other than a SECAM-L system.

Troubleshooting
If a problem arises while you are using the TV, please read this troubleshooting guide carefully
before you ask to have the TV repaired. You may be able to fix it easily by yourself. For example,
if the mains plug is disconnected from the mains outlet, or the TV aerial has problems, you may
think there is a problem with the TV itself.
Important:
• This troubleshooting guide only covers problems whose causes are not easy to decide. If you
have a question when you are operating a function, read the page(s) for that function carefully,
not this troubleshooting guide.
• If you follow the advice in this troubleshooting guide without any success, unplug the mains
plug and ask for your TV to be repaired. Do not attempt to repair the TV by yourself or to
remove the rear cover of the TV.
„ If you cannot turn on the TV
• Is the mains plug connected to the mains
outlet?
• Is the power lamp lit? If not, press the A
button on the TV.
• Make sure you set the VCR/TV/DVD
switch to the TV position. You cannot
turn the TV on when the VCR/TV/DVD
switch is set to the VCR or DVD position.
„ If you cannot turn off the TV
• Make sure you set the VCR/TV/DVD
switch to the TV position. You cannot
turn the TV off when the VCR/TV/DVD
switch is set to the VCR or DVD position.
„ No picture or no sound
• Have you chosen a TV channel with very
poor reception? If so, the BLUE BACK
function will be activated: the entire
screen becomes blue, and the sound is
muted. If you still want to view the TV
channel, follow the description “BLUE
BACK” on page 30 to change the BLUE
BACK function setting to OFF.
• If the SYSTEM setting for a TV channel
is incorrect, it may prevent the sound
from being issued. Follow the description
“EDIT/MANUAL” on page 32 to use the
MANUAL function to try to change the
SYSTEM setting.
• When you are using EXT-3, EXT-4 or
DVI terminal, make sure the audio cable
is connected to EXT-3 L/R terminal.
46
„ Poor picture
• If noise (snow) totally blocks out the
picture, there may be a problem with the
aerial or aerial cable. Check the following
to try to solve the problem:
– Have the TV and aerial been connected
properly?
– Has the aerial cable been damaged?
– Is the aerial pointing in the right
direction?
– Is the aerial itself faulty?
• If the TV or aerial suffers interference
from other equipment, stripes or noise
may appear in the picture. Move any
equipment such as an amplifier, personal
computer, or a hair drier, that can cause
interference away from your TV. Or try
moving the TV. If the aerial suffers
interference from a radio tower or highvoltage wire, please contact your local
dealer.
• If the TV suffers interference from signals
reflecting from mountains or buildings,
double-pictures (ghosting) will occur. Try
to change the aerial’s direction or replace
it with one with better directionality.
• Are your COLOUR SYSTEM settings
correct? Follow the description
“COLOUR SYSTEM” on page 26 to try
to solve the trouble.
• Have the COLOUR and BRIGHT settings
been adjusted properly? Follow the
description “BRIGHT-2” and
“COLOUR” on page 25 to try to adjust
them properly.

LT-32&26A61BJSJ_Eng.book Page 47 Friday, October 14, 2005 1:40 PM
Troubleshooting
• Videotaping teletext is not recommended
because it may not record correctly.
• When viewing images from commercially
available video software products, or
videos from videotapes which have been
recorded improperly, the top of the image
may be distorted. This is due to the
condition of the video signal. There is
nothing wrong with the TV.
• Since this TV is designed to make full use
of the resolution of the original video
source, the motion may appear unnatural
when the video source is input with
progressive-scanning component signals.
If this occurs, change the output setting of
the connected device to interlacescanning component signal output. See
the instructions that came with the device
for more information.
„ Poor sound
• Have you adjusted BASS or TREBLE
properly? If not, follow the description
“BASS” or “TREBLE” on page 28.
• When TV channel reception is poor, it can
be hard to hear stereo or bilingual sound.
In this case, follow the description
“STEREO / I • II” on page 28 to hear the
sound more easily by changing it to a
mono sound.
„ If the TV does not respond to the
remote control
• Have the batteries of the remote control
worn out? Follow the description “Putting
the batteries into the remote control” on
page 7 and replace them with new batteries.
• Have you attempted to use the remote
control from the sides or rear of the TV or
from more than seven metres away from the
TV? Use the remote control in front of your
TV or from less than seven metres away.
• When you are viewing a teletext
programme, you cannot operate the
menus. Press the b button to return to
the ordinary TV programme, and then try
operating the menus.
• If the TV suddenly stops responding,
disconnect the power cord of the TV from
the AC outlet. Connect them to the AC
outlet again to turn on the TV. If the TV
returns to a normal state, it is not a failure.
„ Other issues
• When the SLEEP TIMER function
operates, the TV is automatically turned
off. If the TV suddenly turns off, try to
press the # (standby) button to turn on
the TV once again. If the TV goes back to
normal, there is no problem.
• When the TV is receiving a wide-screen
signal (WSS) or a signal from an external
device affecting the screen size, the
ZOOM mode automatically changes.
When you want to resume the previous
ZOOM mode, press the c button
again.
• It takes a short period of time from the
time an operation such as changing
channels is performed until an image is
displayed. This is not a fault. This is the
time needed for the image to stabilize
before it can be displayed.
• The TV may make a crackling sound due
to a sudden change in temperature. The
picture or sound may be normal. If you
hear crackling sounds frequently while
you are viewing the TV, there may be
other causes. As a precaution, ask your
service technician to inspect it.

Troubleshooting
• The top of the TV and the screen may
become hot during use but this has no
affect on the performance of the TV.
Make sure that the ventilation holes are
not blocked.
• When the picture is unstable, the screen
may become white for a moment. This
happens when the signal which drives the
liquid crystal is missing. This is not a
fault.
• When a still image has been displayed for
a long period, a faint residual image may
remain on the screen for a short time after
the power has been turned off or when
another image is displayed. This is not a
fault and the image will eventually
disappear.

Thank you for buying this JVC LCD flat television.
To make sure you understand how to use your new TV, please read this manual thoroughly before you
begin. (“LCD” stands for Liquid Crystal Display.)
WARNING: TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS
APPLIANCE TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
WARNING
ENGLISH
• The TV may fall causing injuries. Hold the bottom of the
stand with your hand and tilt the TV up and down.
• Do not allow children to hang from the TV, place their

cause the TV to fall over and lead to injuries.
CAUTION
• The TV screen may be damaged if the TV is carried as

Pixel defects
LCDs use collections of fine points (“pixels”) to display images. While there is no problem with
more than 99.99% of these pixels, please understand that a very small number of pixels may not
light, or may light all the time.
Distance recommendations
Avoid improper installation and never position the unit
where good ventilation is impossible.
When installing this TV, distance recommendations
must be maintained between the set and the wall, as well

Failure to take the following precautions may cause damage to the television
or remote control.
DO NOT block the TV’s ventilation openings or holes.
(If the ventilation openings or holes are blocked by a newspaper or cloth, etc., the heat may not be
able to get out.)

Generally, the VCR cannot record a TV
channel that it cannot receive properly on its
own tuner, even if you can view that TV
channel on the TV. However, some VCRs
can record a TV channel by using the TV’s
output if that channel can be viewed on the

CH/CC numbers
ENGLISH
• When two CH/CC numbers correspond to one Channel number, choose either one according to
the current COUNTRY setting. When the COUNTRY setting is other than FRANCE, choose a
two-digit CH/CC number. When the COUNTRY setting is FRANCE, choose a three-digit CH/
CC number.
• Find the CH/CC number (CC110 to CC161) corresponding to the TV channel (SECAM-L
system) from a French cable TV station, based on the broadcast frequency of the TV channel.
When you do not know the broadcast frequency, please contact the cable TV station.
• The CH/CC numbers of CH102-CH169 and CC110-CC161 correspond to the TV channels
being broadcast by a SECAM-L system. The other CH/CC numbers correspond to the TV
channels being broadcast by a method other than a SECAM-L system.

Troubleshooting
If a problem arises while you are using the TV, please read this troubleshooting guide carefully
before you ask to have the TV repaired. You may be able to fix it easily by yourself. For example,
if the mains plug is disconnected from the mains outlet, or the TV aerial has problems, you may
think there is a problem with the TV itself.
Important:
• This troubleshooting guide only covers problems whose causes are not easy to decide. If you
have a question when you are operating a function, read the page(s) for that function carefully,
not this troubleshooting guide.
• If you follow the advice in this troubleshooting guide without any success, unplug the mains
plug and ask for your TV to be repaired. Do not attempt to repair the TV by yourself or to
remove the rear cover of the TV.
„ If you cannot turn on the TV
• Is the mains plug connected to the mains
outlet?
• Is the power lamp lit? If not, press the A
button on the TV.
• Make sure you set the VCR/TV/DVD
switch to the TV position. You cannot
turn the TV on when the VCR/TV/DVD
switch is set to the VCR or DVD position.
„ If you cannot turn off the TV
• Make sure you set the VCR/TV/DVD
switch to the TV position. You cannot
turn the TV off when the VCR/TV/DVD
switch is set to the VCR or DVD position.
„ No picture or no sound
• Have you chosen a TV channel with very
poor reception? If so, the BLUE BACK
function will be activated: the entire
screen becomes blue, and the sound is
muted. If you still want to view the TV
channel, follow the description “BLUE
BACK” on page 30 to change the BLUE
BACK function setting to OFF.
• If the SYSTEM setting for a TV channel
is incorrect, it may prevent the sound
from being issued. Follow the description
“EDIT/MANUAL” on page 32 to use the
MANUAL function to try to change the
SYSTEM setting.
• When you are using EXT-3, EXT-4 or
DVI terminal, make sure the audio cable
is connected to EXT-3 L/R terminal.
46
„ Poor picture
• If noise (snow) totally blocks out the
picture, there may be a problem with the
aerial or aerial cable. Check the following
to try to solve the problem:
– Have the TV and aerial been connected
properly?
– Has the aerial cable been damaged?
– Is the aerial pointing in the right
direction?
– Is the aerial itself faulty?
• If the TV or aerial suffers interference
from other equipment, stripes or noise
may appear in the picture. Move any
equipment such as an amplifier, personal
computer, or a hair drier, that can cause
interference away from your TV. Or try
moving the TV. If the aerial suffers
interference from a radio tower or highvoltage wire, please contact your local
dealer.
• If the TV suffers interference from signals
reflecting from mountains or buildings,
double-pictures (ghosting) will occur. Try
to change the aerial’s direction or replace
it with one with better directionality.
• Are your COLOUR SYSTEM settings
correct? Follow the description
“COLOUR SYSTEM” on page 26 to try
to solve the trouble.
• Have the COLOUR and BRIGHT settings
been adjusted properly? Follow the
description “BRIGHT-2” and
“COLOUR” on page 25 to try to adjust
them properly.

Troubleshooting
„ Poor sound
• Have you adjusted BASS or TREBLE
properly? If not, follow the description
“BASS” or “TREBLE” on page 28.
• When TV channel reception is poor, it can
be hard to hear stereo or bilingual sound.
In this case, follow the description
“STEREO / I • II” on page 28 to hear the
sound more easily by changing it to a
mono sound.
„ If the TV does not respond to the
remote control
• Have the batteries of the remote control
worn out? Follow the description “Putting
the batteries into the remote control” on
page 7 and replace them with new batteries.
• Have you attempted to use the remote
control from the sides or rear of the TV or
from more than seven metres away from the
TV? Use the remote control in front of your
TV or from less than seven metres away.
• When you are viewing a teletext
programme, you cannot operate the
menus. Press the b button to return to
the ordinary TV programme, and then try
operating the menus.
• If the TV suddenly stops responding,
disconnect the power cord of the TV from
the AC outlet. Connect them to the AC
outlet again to turn on the TV. If the TV
returns to a normal state, it is not a failure.
ENGLISH
• Videotaping teletext is not recommended
because it may not record correctly.
• When viewing images from commercially
available video software products, or
videos from videotapes which have been
recorded improperly, the top of the image
may be distorted. This is due to the
condition of the video signal. There is
nothing wrong with the TV.
• Since this TV is designed to make full use
of the resolution of the original video
source, the motion may appear unnatural
when the video source is input with
progressive-scanning component signals.
If this occurs, change the output setting of
the connected device to interlacescanning component signal output. See
the instructions that came with the device
for more information.
„ Other issues
• When the SLEEP TIMER function
operates, the TV is automatically turned
off. If the TV suddenly turns off, try to
press the # (standby) button to turn on
the TV once again. If the TV goes back to
normal, there is no problem.
• When the TV is receiving a wide-screen
signal (WSS) or a signal from an external
device affecting the screen size, the
ZOOM mode automatically changes.
When you want to resume the previous
ZOOM mode, press the c button
again.
• It takes a short period of time from the
time an operation such as changing
channels is performed until an image is
displayed. This is not a fault. This is the
time needed for the image to stabilize
before it can be displayed.
• The TV may make a crackling sound due
to a sudden change in temperature. The
picture or sound may be normal. If you
hear crackling sounds frequently while
you are viewing the TV, there may be
other causes. As a precaution, ask your
service technician to inspect it.

Troubleshooting
• The top of the TV and the screen may
become hot during use but this has no
affect on the performance of the TV.
Make sure that the ventilation holes are
not blocked.
• When the picture is unstable, the screen
may become white for a moment. This
happens when the signal which drives the
liquid crystal is missing. This is not a
fault.
• When a still image has been displayed for
a long period, a faint residual image may
remain on the screen for a short time after
the power has been turned off or when
another image is displayed. This is not a
fault and the image will eventually
disappear.
