SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
“SOME DOS AND DON’TS ON THE SAFE USE OF EQUIPMENT”
This equipment has been designed and manufactured to meet international safety standards but, like any
electrical equipment, care must be taken if you are to obtain the best results and safety is to be assured.
✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮
Do read the operating instructions before you attempt to use the equipment.
Do ensure that all electrical connections (including the mains plug, extension leads and interconnections
between pieces of equipment) are properly made and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Switch off and withdraw the mains plug when making or changing connections.
Do consult your dealer if you are ever in doubt about the installation, operation or safety of your equipment.
Do be careful with glass panels or doors on equipment.
✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮
DON’T continue to operate the equipment if you are in any doubt about it working normally, or if it is damaged
in any way — switch off, withdraw the mains plug and consult your dealer.
DON’T remove any fixed cover as this may expose dangerous voltages.
DON’T leave equipment switched on when it is unattended unless it is specifically stated that it is designed for
unattended operation or has a standby mode.
Switch off using the switch on the equipment and make sure that your family know how to do this.
Special arrangements may need to be made for infirm or handicapped people.
DON’T use equipment such as personal stereos or radios so that you are distracted from the requirements of
traffic safety. It is illegal to watch television whilst driving.
DON’T listen to headphones at high volume as such use can permanently damage your hearing.
DON’T obstruct the ventilation of the equipment, for example with curtains or soft furnishings.
Overheating will cause damage and shorten the life of the equipment.
DON’T use makeshift stands and NEVER fix legs with wood screws — to ensure complete safety always fit
the manufacturer’s approved stand or legs with the fixings provided according to the instructions.
DON’T allow electrical equipment to be exposed to rain or moisture.
ABOVE ALL
— NEVER let anyone, especially children, push anything into holes, slots or any other opening in the
case — this could result in a fatal electrical shock.
— NEVER guess or take chances with electrical equipment of any kind — it is better to be safe than
sorry!

HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
• When not in use
When not using the unit for an extended period of time,
disconnect the AC power cord from the AC outlet.
• Ventilation
Do not block the ventilation holes of the unit; otherwise
heat cannot escape from the unit.
• AC power cord
– Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.
– When unplugging the power cord from the wall
outlet, always grasp and pull the plug, not the cord.
– Do not modify the power cord in any manner. Do
not bend it sharply or twist it.
– Consult your dealer when damage, disconnection or
contact failure is found with the power cord.
– In case of lightning, unplug the AC power cord.
• CD pickup lens
Do not leave the disc compartment cover open;
otherwise the CD pickup lens might be contaminated
with dust. Do not touch the lens with fingers.
• Do not disassemble the unit.
• Foreign objects and liquid
– Do not insert any metallic objects into the unit.
– If water or some liquid gets inside the unit, unplug
the power cord from the outlet and consult your
dealer.
• Avoid installing the unit in the following
places:
– Where the temperature may become excessively
high or low; the recommended temperature range is
between 5°C and 35°C.
– Where subject to vibrations.
– Where it is excessively humid, such as in a
bathroom.
– In a badly ventilated place.
– Near strong magnetic fields.
• Do not use the unit in direct sunlight or leave it
in a closed automobile, etc.
The unit might be exposed to high temperatures above
40°C.
Downloaded
1 From DvDPlayer-Manual.com JVC Manuals
• Condensation
Moisture may form on the CD pickup lens when:
– A heater has just been switched on in the room where
the unit is used.
– The unit is in a place with smoke or high humidity.
– The unit has just moved from a cold place to a warm
room.
If the unit has condensation inside, it may not function
correctly. Should this occur, turn on the unit and wait
one or two hours before use.
• Do not place magnetic objects near the
speakers.
Since the speakers contain magnets inside, do not place
cassette tapes or magnetic cards nearby as recorded
data could be erased.
• Keep the unit away from a TV.
Do not place the unit near a TV or avoid using the unit
when the TV is turned on; otherwise the TV picture
could be distorted.
• Carrying handle
– Do not raise or lower the carrying handle with the
telescopic antenna extended, to avoid damage to the
antenna.
– Position the carrying handle so that it does not
interfere with operation.
POWER SUPPLY
Operation on household AC
1 Connect the supplied AC power cord to the
AC IN Ó jack on the rear panel of the unit.
2 Plug the AC power cord into an AC power
outlet.
Cautions
• Use only the JVC power cord provided with this unit
to avoid malfunction or damage to the unit.
• Even when you turn off the unit by pressing the
button, a very small current
STANDBY/ON
continues to flow. To save power and for safety when
not using the unit for an extended period of time,
disconnect the power cord from the household AC
outlet.
Operation on batteries
Battery replacement
When the tape speed or output sound level decreases, or
CD playback becomes intermittent, replace all batteries
with fresh ones.
For better battery usage
• When making an important recording, use of new
batteries (preferably alkaline batteries with a longer
service life) is recommended to avoid any possible
failure.
• To prevent the power from being accidentally turned
on, remove the batteries when carrying the unit by hand
or in the trunk of a car, thus avoiding wasteful battery
consumption.
• Continuous operation of the unit causes the battery
power to be consumed quicker than non-continuous
operation.
• Operation of the unit in a cold place causes the battery
power to be consumed more quickly than in a warm
place.
Installing batteries
1 Open the battery compartment cover by
pressing down the two tabs.
2 Install eight R20P (SUM-1)/D (13F) batteries.
Insert the batteries with ª and · positioned
correctly referring to the drawing above the battery
compartment.
3 Replace the cover.
Downloaded From DvDPlayer-Manual.com JVC Manuals
Cautions
If batteries are used incorrectly, it may result in
electrolyte leakage or they may explode.
• Make sure that the batteries are installed with the
positive ª and negative · terminals positioned
correctly.
• Do not mix new and old batteries together, or mix
different types of batteries.
• Do not try to recharge non-rechargeable batteries.
• Remove the batteries when the unit is not to be used
for an extended period of time.
• Remove the batteries when operating the unit on
the household AC; though the power supply is
automatically switched from the batteries to the
household AC when the AC power cord is
connected.
• If chemicals leaking from batteries come in contact
with your skin, wash them off immediately with
water. If chemicals leak on the surface of the unit,
clean the unit completely.

PLAYING COMPACT DISCS
Playable discs
Notes on handling discs
The unit can play audio CDs (8 cm and 12 cm) with the
following mark.
The following care should be taken to keep discs in good
condition, since dirty, damaged or warped discs could
lead to sound deterioration and damaging the unit.
• Do not touch the reflective recorded surface.
• Do not stick or write anything on both surfaces.
• Do not bend discs.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high
temperatures from a heater, etc., high humidity, or dust.

Notes on cassette tapes
• It should be noted that it may be unlawful to rerecord pre-recorded tapes, records, or discs without
the consent of the owner of copyright in the sound
or video recording, broadcast or cable program and
in any literary, dramatic, musical, or artistic work
embodied therein.
• Use only normal tapes of type I for playback and
recording.
• Use of tapes longer than 120 minutes is not
recommended, since characteristic deterioration may
occur and these tapes easily jam in the pinch roller and
capstan.
• Loose tape can cause trouble. If you notice some slack
in the tape, tighten it up using a pencil.

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the cabinet
Cleaning the CD pickup lens
Wipe it with a soft, dry cloth. Never use benzene or
thinner as these could damage the surface finish.
If the CD pickup lens is dirty, clean the lens to prevent
sound deterioration.
Cleaning the heads, capstan and pinch
roller
When the tape is running, magnetic powder and dust
naturally accumulate on the heads, capstan and pinch
roller.
When they become too dirty:
• Sound quality deteriorates.
• The sound output level drops.
• The previous recording is not completely erased.
• Recording is not performed correctly.
Gently wipe off fingerprints, etc. on the lens using a
cotton swab.
To blow off dust on the lens, use a blower available at
camera shops, etc., as shown below.
To avoid these, clean the heads, capstan and pinch roller
every 10 hours of use.
For effective cleaning, use a cleaning kit available at
audio stores. Make sure that the cleaning fluid has dried
completely before loading a cassette.
Blower
Heads
Capstan
Lens
Pinch roller
Note
Do not use thinner or benzene, as these will damage the
rubber pinch roller (use of alcohol is permitted).
Demagnetizing the recording/playback
head
If the head becomes magnetized, noise will increase and
the sound will deteriorate.
Demagnetize the recording/playback head every 20 to
30 hours of use with a head demagnetizer available at
audio stores. When demagnetizing the head, turn off the
unit to the standby mode by pressing the STANDBY/
button.

HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
• When not in use
When not using the unit for an extended period of time,
disconnect the AC power cord from the AC outlet.
• Ventilation
Do not block the ventilation holes of the unit; otherwise
heat cannot escape from the unit.
• AC power cord
– Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.
– When unplugging the power cord from the wall
outlet, always grasp and pull the plug, not the cord.
– Do not modify the power cord in any manner. Do
not bend it sharply or twist it.
– Consult your dealer when damage, disconnection or
contact failure is found with the power cord.
– In case of lightning, unplug the AC power cord.
• CD pickup lens
Do not leave the disc compartment cover open;
otherwise the CD pickup lens might be contaminated
with dust. Do not touch the lens with fingers.
• Do not disassemble the unit.
• Foreign objects and liquid
– Do not insert any metallic objects into the unit.
– If water or some liquid gets inside the unit, unplug
the power cord from the outlet and consult your
dealer.
• Avoid installing the unit in the following
places:
– Where the temperature may become excessively
high or low; the recommended temperature range is
between 5°C and 35°C.
– Where subject to vibrations.
– Where it is excessively humid, such as in a
bathroom.
– In a badly ventilated place.
– Near strong magnetic fields.
• Do not use the unit in direct sunlight or leave it
in a closed automobile, etc.
The unit might be exposed to high temperatures above
40°C.

• Condensation
Moisture may form on the CD pickup lens when:
– A heater has just been switched on in the room where
the unit is used.
– The unit is in a place with smoke or high humidity.
– The unit has just moved from a cold place to a warm
room.
If the unit has condensation inside, it may not function
correctly. Should this occur, turn on the unit and wait
one or two hours before use.
• Do not place magnetic objects near the
speakers.
Since the speakers contain magnets inside, do not place
cassette tapes or magnetic cards nearby as recorded
data could be erased.
• Keep the unit away from a TV.
Do not place the unit near a TV or avoid using the unit
when the TV is turned on; otherwise the TV picture
could be distorted.
• Carrying handle
– Do not raise or lower the carrying handle with the
telescopic antenna extended, to avoid damage to the
antenna.
– Position the carrying handle so that it does not
interfere with operation.
English
POWER SUPPLY
Operation on household AC
1 Connect the supplied AC power cord to the
AC IN Ó jack on the rear panel of the unit.
2 Plug the AC power cord into an AC power
outlet.
Cautions
• Use only the JVC power cord provided with this unit
to avoid malfunction or damage to the unit.
• Even when you turn off the unit by pressing the
button, a very small current
STANDBY/ON
continues to flow. To save power and for safety when
not using the unit for an extended period of time,
disconnect the power cord from the household AC
outlet.
Operation on batteries
Battery replacement
When the tape speed or output sound level decreases, or
CD playback becomes intermittent, replace all batteries
with fresh ones.
For better battery usage
• When making an important recording, use of new
batteries (preferably alkaline batteries with a longer
service life) is recommended to avoid any possible
failure.
• To prevent the power from being accidentally turned
on, remove the batteries when carrying the unit by hand
or in the trunk of a car, thus avoiding wasteful battery
consumption.
• Continuous operation of the unit causes the battery
power to be consumed quicker than non-continuous
operation.
• Operation of the unit in a cold place causes the battery
power to be consumed more quickly than in a warm
place.
Installing batteries
1 Open the battery compartment cover by
pressing down the two tabs.
2 Install eight R20P (SUM-1)/D (13F) batteries.
Insert the batteries with ª and · positioned
correctly referring to the drawing above the battery
compartment.
3 Replace the cover.
Downloaded From DvDPlayer-Manual.com JVC Manuals
Cautions
If batteries are used incorrectly, it may result in
electrolyte leakage or they may explode.
• Make sure that the batteries are installed with the
positive ª and negative · terminals positioned
correctly.
• Do not mix new and old batteries together, or mix
different types of batteries.
• Do not try to recharge non-rechargeable batteries.
• Remove the batteries when the unit is not to be used
for an extended period of time.
• Remove the batteries when operating the unit on
the household AC; though the power supply is
automatically switched from the batteries to the
household AC when the AC power cord is
connected.
• If chemicals leaking from batteries come in contact
with your skin, wash them off immediately with
water. If chemicals leak on the surface of the unit,
clean the unit completely.

PLAYING COMPACT DISCS
Playable discs
Notes on handling discs
The unit can play audio CDs (8 cm and 12 cm) with the
following mark.
The following care should be taken to keep discs in good
condition, since dirty, damaged or warped discs could
lead to sound deterioration and damage the unit.
• Do not touch the reflective recorded surface.
• Do not stick or write anything on both surfaces.
• Do not bend discs.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high
temperatures from a heater, etc., high humidity, or dust.
• After using a disc be sure to put it back in its case.
• To remove a disc from its storage case, press the center
and lift the disc out.
The unit can also play CD-R and CD-RW discs recorded
in music CD format.
Notes on CD-R and CD-RW discs
• User-edited CD-R (Recordable) and CD-RW
(Rewritable) discs can be played only if they are
already finalized.
• Some CD-R and CD-RW discs may not be played on
the unit depending on the disc characteristics or
recording conditions.
• Before playing CD-R or CD-RW discs, read their
instructions and cautions carefully.
• Some CD-R and CD-RW discs may not be played on
the unit because of damage or stain on them, or if the
CD pickup lens is dirty.
• CD-RW discs may require a longer readout time (due
to the fact that the reflectance of CD-RW discs is lower
than that of regular CDs).
• When replacing a disc in its case, press the center part
to secure the disc.
• Clean off any dust, dirt or fingerprints on discs with a
soft, dry cloth, wiping from the center to edge. Never
use thinner, benzene, record cleaner or antistatic spray.

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the cabinet
Cleaning the CD pickup lens
Wipe it with a soft, dry cloth. Never use benzene or
thinner as these could damage the surface finish.
If the CD pickup lens is dirty, clean the lens to prevent
sound deterioration.
Cleaning the heads, capstan and pinch
roller
When the tape is running, magnetic powder and dust
naturally accumulate on the heads, capstan and pinch
roller.
When they become too dirty:
• Sound quality deteriorates.
• The sound output level drops.
• The previous recording is not completely erased.
• Recording is not performed correctly.
Gently wipe off fingerprints, etc. on the lens using a
cotton swab.
To blow off dust on the lens, use a blower available at
camera shops, etc., as shown below.
To avoid these, clean the heads, capstan and pinch roller
every 10 hours of use.
For effective cleaning, use a cleaning kit available at
audio stores. Make sure that the cleaning fluid has dried
completely before loading a cassette.
Blower
Heads
Capstan
Lens
Pinch roller
Note
Do not use thinner or benzene, as these will damage the
rubber pinch roller (use of alcohol is permitted).
Demagnetizing the recording/playback
head
If the head becomes magnetized, noise will increase and
the sound will deteriorate.
Demagnetize the recording/playback head every 20 to
30 hours of use with a head demagnetizer available at
audio stores. When demagnetizing the head, turn off the
unit to the standby mode by pressing the STANDBY/
button.

HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
• When not in use
When not using the unit for an extended period of time,
disconnect the AC power cord from the AC outlet.
• Ventilation
Do not block the ventilation holes of the unit; otherwise
heat cannot escape from the unit.
• AC power cord
– Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.
– When unplugging the power cord from the wall
outlet, always grasp and pull the plug, not the cord.
– Do not modify the power cord in any manner. Do
not bend it sharply or twist it.
– Consult your dealer when damage, disconnection or
contact failure is found with the power cord.
– In case of lightning, unplug the AC power cord.
• CD pickup lens
Do not leave the disc compartment cover open;
otherwise the CD pickup lens might be contaminated
with dust. Do not touch the lens with fingers.
• Do not disassemble the unit.
• Foreign objects and liquid
– Do not insert any metallic objects into the unit.
– If water or some liquid gets inside the unit, unplug
the power cord from the outlet and consult your
dealer.
• Avoid installing the unit in the following
places:
– Where the temperature may become excessively
high or low; the recommended temperature range is
between 5°C and 35°C.
– Where subject to vibrations.
– Where it is excessively humid, such as in a
bathroom.
– In a badly ventilated place.
– Near strong magnetic fields.
• Do not use the unit in direct sunlight or leave it
in a closed automobile, etc.
The unit might be exposed to high temperatures above
40°C.
1 From DvDPlayer-Manual.com JVC Manuals
Downloaded
• Condensation
Moisture may form on the CD pickup lens when:
– A heater has just been switched on in the room where
the unit is used.
– The unit is in a place with smoke or high humidity.
– The unit has just moved from a cold place to a warm
room.
If the unit has condensation inside, it may not function
correctly. Should this occur, turn on the unit and wait
one or two hours before use.
• Do not place magnetic objects near the
speakers.
Since the speakers contain magnets inside, do not place
cassette tapes or magnetic cards nearby as recorded
data could be erased.
• Keep the unit away from a TV.
Do not place the unit near a TV or avoid using the unit
when the TV is turned on; otherwise the TV picture
could be distorted.
• Carrying handle
– Do not raise or lower the carrying handle with the
telescopic antenna extended, to avoid damage to the
antenna.
– Position the carrying handle so that it does not
interfere with operation.
English
POWER SUPPLY
Operation on household AC
1 Connect the supplied AC power cord to the
AC IN Ó jack on the rear panel of the unit.
2 Plug the AC power cord into an AC power
outlet.
Cautions
• Use only the JVC power cord provided with this unit
to avoid malfunction or damage to the unit.
• Even when you turn off the unit by pressing the
button, a very small current
STANDBY/ON
continues to flow. To save power and for safety when
not using the unit for an extended period of time,
disconnect the power cord from the household AC
outlet.
Operation on batteries
Battery replacement
When the tape speed or output sound level decreases, or
CD playback becomes intermittent, replace all batteries
with fresh ones.
For better battery usage
• When making an important recording, use of new
batteries (preferably alkaline batteries with a longer
service life) is recommended to avoid any possible
failure.
• To prevent the power from being accidentally turned
on, remove the batteries when carrying the unit by hand
or in the trunk of a car, thus avoiding wasteful battery
consumption.
• Continuous operation of the unit causes the battery
power to be consumed quicker than non-continuous
operation.
• Operation of the unit in a cold place causes the battery
power to be consumed more quickly than in a warm
place.
Installing batteries
1 Open the battery compartment cover by
pressing down the two tabs.
2 Install eight R20P (SUM-1)/D (13F) batteries.
Insert the batteries with ª and · positioned
correctly referring to the drawing above the battery
compartment.
3 Replace the cover.
Downloaded From DvDPlayer-Manual.com JVC Manuals
Cautions
If batteries are used incorrectly, it may result in
electrolyte leakage or they may explode.
• Make sure that the batteries are installed with the
positive ª and negative · terminals positioned
correctly.
• Do not mix new and old batteries together, or mix
different types of batteries.
• Do not try to recharge non-rechargeable batteries.
• Remove the batteries when the unit is not to be used
for an extended period of time.
• Remove the batteries when operating the unit on
the household AC; though the power supply is
automatically switched from the batteries to the
household AC when the AC power cord is
connected.
• If chemicals leaking from batteries come in contact
with your skin, wash them off immediately with
water. If chemicals leak on the surface of the unit,
clean the unit completely.

PLAYING COMPACT DISCS
Playable discs
Notes on handling discs
The unit can play audio CDs (8 cm and 12 cm) with the
following mark.
The following care should be taken to keep discs in good
condition, since dirty, damaged or warped discs could
lead to sound deterioration and damage the unit.
• Do not touch the reflective recorded surface.
• Do not stick or write anything on both surfaces.
• Do not bend discs.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high
temperatures from a heater, etc., high humidity, or dust.
• After using a disc be sure to put it back in its case.
• To remove a disc from its storage case, press the center
and lift the disc out.
The unit can also play CD-R and CD-RW discs recorded
in music CD format.
Notes on CD-R and CD-RW discs
• User-edited CD-R (Recordable) and CD-RW
(Rewritable) discs can be played only if they are
already finalized.
• Some CD-R and CD-RW discs may not be played on
the unit depending on the disc characteristics or
recording conditions.
• Before playing CD-R or CD-RW discs, read their
instructions and cautions carefully.
• Some CD-R and CD-RW discs may not be played on
the unit because of damage or stain on them, or if the
CD pickup lens is dirty.
• CD-RW discs may require a longer readout time (due
to the fact that the reflectance of CD-RW discs is lower
than that of regular CDs).
• When replacing a disc in its case, press the center part
to secure the disc.
• Clean off any dust, dirt or fingerprints on discs with a
soft, dry cloth, wiping from the center to edge. Never
use thinner, benzene, record cleaner or antistatic spray.

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the cabinet
Cleaning the CD pickup lens
Wipe it with a soft, dry cloth. Never use benzene or
thinner as these could damage the surface finish.
If the CD pickup lens is dirty, clean the lens to prevent
sound deterioration.
Cleaning the heads, capstan and pinch
roller
When the tape is running, magnetic powder and dust
naturally accumulate on the heads, capstan and pinch
roller.
When they become too dirty:
• Sound quality deteriorates.
• The sound output level drops.
• The previous recording is not completely erased.
• Recording is not performed correctly.
Gently wipe off fingerprints, etc. on the lens using a
cotton swab.
To blow off dust on the lens, use a blower available at
camera shops, etc., as shown below.
To avoid these, clean the heads, capstan and pinch roller
every 10 hours of use.
For effective cleaning, use a cleaning kit available at
audio stores. Make sure that the cleaning fluid has dried
completely before loading a cassette.
Blower
Heads
Capstan
Lens
Pinch roller
Note
Do not use thinner or benzene, as these will damage the
rubber pinch roller (use of alcohol is permitted).
Demagnetizing the recording/playback
head
If the head becomes magnetized, noise will increase and
the sound will deteriorate.
Demagnetize the recording/playback head every 20 to
30 hours of use with a head demagnetizer available at
audio stores. When demagnetizing the head, turn off the
unit to the standby mode by pressing the STANDBY/
button.
