How This Manual Is Organized
In this manual we have incorporated some special features :
• Basic information that is the same for many different functions is grouped in one place, and not repeated
in each procedure. For instance, in the section on playing a CD, we do not repeat the information about
setting the volume and the sound conditions, which are discussed in the Common Operations section.
• Name of the buttons and controls are written in all capital letters like this: SOUND MODE.
• When we are talking about the Function rather than the BUTTON or DISPLAY, only the first letter is
capitalized.
The manual has a table of contents to help you quickly look up what you want to know. We’ve enjoyed
making this manual for you, and hope you will use it to enjoy the sound and many features built into your
System.
IMPORTANT CAUTIONS

• Select a place which is level, dry and neither too hot nor too cold. (5˚C – 35˚C or 41˚F – 95˚F).
• Leave sufficient distance between the Unit and a TV.
• Do not place the Unit in a place subject to vibrations.
2. Power Cord
• Do not handle the power cord with wet hands!

NTSC ................ for NTSC exclusive TV.

PAL AUTO detects the formula of the disc (NTSC/PAL) automatically and plays the
image on the screen correctly.
Note :
• Select the mode before you play the disc. If you change the mode during play, images may get distorted.
In this situation, stop the player and reset the mode.
• When you play an NTSC disc in PAL AUTO mode on a PAL exclusive TV, the image may be distorted.
If this happens, change the mode to “PAL”.
• When you play an NTSC disc in PAL AUTO mode on a Multisystem TV, the image may blink for a
moment. This symptom is caused by the Player detecting the formula of the disc, not by a malfunction of
the Player.
You can plug the AC power cord into the wall outlet.
Your System is ready for action and it is just waiting for your
command!
COMPU PLAY
COMPU PLAY is JVC’s feature that allows you to control the most frequently used functions of the System
with a single touch.
One Touch Operation starts playing a CD, turns on the radio, plays a tape, etc. with a single press of the
play button for that function. What it does is that it will turn on the power and then start the function
specified. If the Unit is still not loaded with a CD or tape, the Unit still powers on and you can insert a CD or
tape.

Recording onto a cassette from any kind of the audio sources is simple. Just insert a cassette in Deck B, have the source ready, make one or
two settings, and you’re ready to record.
Things To Know Before You Start Recording
It may be unlawful to record or playback copyright material without the consent of the copyright owner.
When you want to record onto both sides of a tape, you can set the Reverse mode on to do so. However, recording automatically stops
2) direction in Reverse mode. Therefore, make sure that the tape direction is (3
3) when recording with Reverse
after recording in the (2
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. 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 side for side A and one for side B, can be removed to prevent accidental erasure or
re-recording. 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 is used to detect the tape type.
When recording, you can hear Sound Mode effects through the speakers or headphones.
However, sound is recorded without Sound Mode effects.
Only Type I and Type II tapes can be used for recording.
Note: At the start and end of tapes, there is leader tape which cannot be recorded onto. Depending on the recording source, the first part of the
recording may be missing because of the leader. When recording CDs or radio broadcasts, first wind on the leader tape before recording.
Caution : If recordings you have made have excessive noise or static, the Unit may be too close to a TV which was on during the recording.
Either turn off the TV or move the System away from the TV.

singing into the microphone. Usually stereo recorded CDs are the best source for Vocal Masking.
The following sources are not good for Vocal Masking.
• Monaural sources.
• Multiplex karaoke tapes and discs.
• Poorly dubbed tapes.
• Stereo recorded source, but with only few instruments, with duets, or with strong echo.

•
•
•
Remove the CD from the case by holding it
at the edges while pressing the centre hole
lightly.
Do not touch the shiny surface of the CD, or
bend the CD.
Put the CD back in its case after use to prevent warping.
Be careful not to scratch the surface of the
CD when placing it back in the case.
Avoid exposure to direct sunlight, temperature extremes, and moisture.
If the tape is loose in its cassette, take
up the slack by inserting a pencil in one
of the reels and rotating.
If the tape is loose, it may get stretched,
cut, or caught in the cassette.
•
Do not touch the tape surface.
•
Do not store the tape:
- In dusty places
- In direct sunlight or heat
- In moist areas
- On a TV or speaker
- Near a magnet
A dirty CD may not play correctly. If a CD
does become dirty, wipe it with a soft cloth
in a straight line from centre to edge.
CAUTION: Do not use any solvent (for example, conventional record cleaner, spray
thinner, benzine, etc.) to clean a CD.
Cassette Deck
•
If the heads, capstans, and pinch-rollers of the Cassette Deck
become dirty, the following will occur:
- Loss of sound quality
- Discontinuous sound
- Fading
- Incomplete erasure
- Difficulty recording
•
Clean the heads, capstans, and pinch-rollers using a cotton
swab moistened with alcohol.
Moisture Condensation
Moisture may condense on the lens inside the
Unit in the following cases:
• After starting the heating in the room.
• In a damp room.
• If the Unit is brought directly from a cold
to a warm place.
Should this occur, the Unit may malfunction. In
this case, leave the Unit turned on for a few
hours until the moisture evaporates, unplug
the AC power cord, and then plug it in again.
Pinch-rollers
Capstans
General Notes
In general, you will have the best performance by keeping your
tapes, CDs, and the mechanism clean.
• Store tapes and CDs in their cases, and keep them in cabinets
or on shelves.
• Keep the Cassette Deck’s tape doors and the CD trays closed
when not in use.
Heads
•
If the heads become magnetized, the Unit will produce noise
or lose high frequencies.
•
To demagnetize the heads, turn off the Unit, and use a head
demagnetizer (available at electronics and record shops).
