SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Prevention of Electric Shocks, Fire Hazards
and Damages
• Even when the STANDBY/ON button is set to
STANDBY, a very small current will flow. When the
unit is turned on, the display window lights in blue.
When the unit is in standby mode, the display window
turns off. (Note, however, that the display window does
not light even when the unit is turned on if the unit is
operated on batteries.) 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.
• Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.
• When unplugging from the wall outlet, always grasp
and pull the plug, not the power cord.
• Consult your nearest dealer when damage,
disconnection, or contact failure is found with the cord.
•
•
•
•
•

•
Do not bend the cord sharply, or pull or twist it.
Rating label is placed on the exterior of the bottom.
Do not modify the power cord in any manner.
Do not remove screws to disassemble the unit and do
not touch anything inside the unit to avoid accidents.
Do not insert any metallic objects into the unit.
Unplug the power cord when there is a possibility of
lightning.
If water gets inside the unit, unplug the power cord
from the outlet and consult your dealer.
Do not block the ventilation holes of the unit so that
heat can escape.
Do not install the unit in a badly ventilated place.

Do not use this unit in direct sunlight or leave the unit
in a closed automobile (or yacht, etc.) where it would
be exposed to high temperatures above 40°C (104°F).
1 Avoid using the unit in the following places:
• Where the temperature may become excessively
high or low; the recommended temperature range
is 5°C (41°F) and 35°C (95°F).
• Where it could be subject to vibrations.
• Where it is excessively humid, such as in a
bathroom.
• Where it could be magnetized by a magnet or
speaker.
2 Pay attention to dust.
Be sure to close the disc door so that the lens is not
contaminated by dust. Do not touch the lens.
3 Condensation
Condensation may occur in the following cases, in
which the unit may not operate correctly:
• The unit is in a room where a heater has just been
switched on.
• The unit is in a place where there is smoke or high
humidity.
• The unit has just moved from a cold place to a
warm room.
In these cases, set the STANDBY/ON button to ON
and wait one or two hours before use.
4 Volume control
Compact discs produce very little noise compared
with analog records. If you adjust the volume by
listening to the noise as you do with analog records,
the speakers could be damaged by a sudden blast of
sound when playback starts. Therefore, turn down
the volume before starting and adjust it as required
while playing a CD.
5 Safety mechanism
The unit incorporates a safety interlock mechanism
which switches off the laser beam when the disc door
is opened.
6 Do not place magnetic objects such as
cassette tapes near the speakers.
Since the speakers contain magnets inside, do not
place cassette tapes or magnetic cards nearby as
recorded data could be erased.
7 Keep the unit away from the TV.
When the unit is used near a TV, the TV picture could
be distorted. If this happens, move the unit away from
the TV. If this does not correct the situation, avoid
using the unit when the TV is turned on.
8 Cleaning the cabinet
If the cabinet gets dirty, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.
Never use benzine or thinner as these could damage
the surface finish.
9 When listening with headphones
• Do not listen at high volumes as it could damage
your hearing.
• For safety, do not drive while listening with
headphones.
10 Carrying handle
Do not raise or lower the carrying handle with the
telescopic antenna extended, to avoid damaging the
antenna. Position the carrying handle so that it does
not interfere with operation.

STANDBY/ON
button
Press the STANDBY/ON
button on the unit to
turn on and off the unit.
You can also press the STANDBY/ON
button on
the remote control unit.
The display window lights up when the unit is turned on.
(Note, however, that the display window does not light

PLAYING COMPACT DISCS
Notes on compact discs
This unit has been designed only to play back the
following CDs.
• Digital audio CD
• Recordable digital audio CD (CD-R)
• Rewritable digital audio CD (CD-RW)
Storage
• After removing a disc from the unit, be sure to put it
back in its case.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high
temperatures from a heater, etc., high humidity or dust.
Cleaning discs
Before loading a disc, wipe off any dust, dirt or
fingerprints with a soft, dry cloth. Discs should be
cleaned by wiping radially, from the center to edge.
Never use thinner, benzine, record cleaner or antistatic
spray.
When playing a CD-R or CD-RW
You can play back finalized CD-R or CD-RW recorded
in music CD format or in MP3 format. (If a CD-RW
has been recorded in a different format, erase all the data
on the CD-RW completely before recording on it.)
• You can play back CD-R or CD-RW in music CD
format like an audio CD.
• Some CD-R or CD-RW may not be played back on
this unit because of their disc characteristics, damage
or stain on them, or if the player lens is dirty.
• The reflection factor of CD-RW is lower than that of
other CDs, possibly causing CD-RW to take longer
time to read.
• Removing the disc from its storage case and
replacing it
Press the center and lift out.
Notes for MP3 files
• The unit can only recognize files with “MP3” or “mp3”
as the extensions, which can be in any combination of
upper and lower cases. The file name needs to be up to
20 characters.
• This unit recognizes files and folders on a disc in the
following conditions:
– up to 640 MP3 files,
– up to 256 folders (including the root folder),
– up to 8th layers (including the root folder).
• It is recommended that you record your material at a
44.1-kHz sampling rate, using the 128-kbps data
transfer rate.
• Some MP3 files or discs may not be played back
because of their characteristics or recording conditions.
• MP3 discs require a longer readout time than normal
discs because of the complexity of the folder/file
configuration.
• MP3i and MP3 Pro are not available.
• The title, artist name and album name can be displayed
as the ID3 TAG (ID3v1/1.1) information.
Press to secure the disc.
• Handling
Incorrect
• Cleaning
Correct
Handling discs
Since dirty, damaged or warped discs could damage the
unit, care should be taken of the following:
• Do not touch the reflective recorded surface.
• Do not stick or write anything on the label side.
• Do not bend discs.

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the heads, capstan and
pinch roller
Cleaning is important!
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 satisfactorily.
To avoid these, clean the heads, capstan and pinch roller
every 10 hours of use.
Cleaning the CD pickup lens
If the CD pickup lens is dirty, the sound may be
degraded.
Open the disc door and clean the lens.
Use a blower (available at a camera store, etc.) to blow
off dust on the lens.
Head (recording/playback)
Erasure head
Pinch roller
Capstan
Blower
Open the cassette holder. Clean the heads, capstan
and pinch roller.
For effective cleaning, use a cleaning kit available at an
audio store.
After cleaning, make sure that the cleaning fluid has dried
completely before loading a cassette.
Lens
Cautions:
• Keep magnets and metallic objects away from the
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
an audio store. When demagnetizing the head, the unit
should be turned off.
As the erasure head of the unit is of magnetic type,
do not demagnetize it.
• Do not use anything other than alcohol for cleaning.
Thinner and benzine will damage the rubber pinch
roller.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Prevention of Electric Shocks, Fire Hazards
and Damages
• Even when the STANDBY/ON button is set to
STANDBY, a very small current will flow. When the
unit is turned on, the display window lights in blue.
When the unit is in standby mode, the display window
turns off. (Note, however, that the display window does
not light even when the unit is turned on if the unit is
operated on batteries.) 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.
• Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.
• When unplugging from the wall outlet, always grasp
and pull the plug, not the power cord.
• Consult your nearest dealer when damage,
disconnection, or contact failure is found with the cord.
•
•
•
•
•
•

•
Do not bend the cord sharply, or pull or twist it.
Rating label is placed on the exterior of the bottom.
Do not modify the power cord in any manner.
Do not remove screws to disassemble the unit and do
not touch anything inside the unit to avoid accidents.
Do not insert any metallic objects into the unit.
Unplug the power cord when there is a possibility of
lightning.
If water gets inside the unit, unplug the power cord
from the outlet and consult your dealer.
Do not block the ventilation holes of the unit so that
heat can escape.
Do not install the unit in a badly ventilated place.

04.4.12, 3:58 PM
Do not use this unit in direct sunlight or leave the unit
in a closed automobile (or yacht, etc.) where it would
be exposed to high temperatures above 40°C.
1 Avoid using the unit in the following places:
• Where the temperature may become excessively
high or low; the recommended temperature range
is 5°C and 35°C.
• Where it could be subject to vibrations.
• Where it is excessively humid, such as in a
bathroom.
• Where it could be magnetized by a magnet or
speaker.
2 Pay attention to dust.
Be sure to close the disc door so that the lens is not
contaminated by dust. Do not touch the lens.
3 Condensation
Condensation may occur in the following cases, in
which the unit may not operate correctly:
• The unit is in a room where a heater has just been
switched on.
• The unit is in a place where there is smoke or high
humidity.
• The unit has just moved from a cold place to a
warm room.
In these cases, set the STANDBY/ON button to ON
and wait one or two hours before use.
4 Volume control
Compact discs produce very little noise compared
with analog records. If you adjust the volume by
listening to the noise as you do with analog records,
the speakers could be damaged by a sudden blast of
sound when playback starts. Therefore, turn down
the volume before starting and adjust it as required
while playing a CD.
5 Safety mechanism
The unit incorporates a safety interlock mechanism
which switches off the laser beam when the disc door
is opened.
6 Do not place magnetic objects such as
cassette tapes near the speakers.
Since the speakers contain magnets inside, do not
place cassette tapes or magnetic cards nearby as
recorded data could be erased.
7 Keep the unit away from the TV.
When the unit is used near a TV, the TV picture could
be distorted. If this happens, move the unit away from
the TV. If this does not correct the situation, avoid
using the unit when the TV is turned on.
8 Cleaning the cabinet
If the cabinet gets dirty, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.
Never use benzine or thinner as these could damage
the surface finish.
9 When listening with headphones
• Do not listen at high volumes as it could damage
your hearing.
• For safety, do not drive while listening with
headphones.
10 Carrying handle
Do not raise or lower the carrying handle with the
telescopic antenna extended, to avoid damaging the
antenna. Position the carrying handle so that it does
not interfere with operation.

HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
English
POWER SUPPLY
Checking batteries
Operation on household AC
The AC power cord provided with this unit has one-way
connections to prevent electric shock. Refer to the figure
below for correct connection.
AC IN
When the tape speed or output sound level decreases, or
CD playback becomes intermittent, replace all batteries
with fresh ones.
When making an important recording, use new batteries
(preferably alkaline batteries with a longer service life)
to avoid any possible failure.
For better battery usage
CAUTIONS:
• Use only with the JVC power cord provided with this
unit to avoid malfunction or damage to the unit.
Remove batteries when using the power cord.

• Continuous operation of the unit causes the battery
power to be consumed quicker than noncontinuous
operation.
• Operation of the unit in a cold place causes the battery
power to be consumed more quickly than in a warm
place.
CAUTIONS:
• When not using the unit for a long time (more than
two weeks) or when using the household AC, remove
the batteries to avoid a malfunction or damage to the
unit.
• When the JVC power cord provided with this unit is
connected, the power is automatically switched from
the batteries to the household AC even when the
batteries are loaded.
However, remove the batteries when using the power
cord.
CAUTIONS WHEN USING BATTERIES:
When batteries are used incorrectly, it may result in
the leakage of chemicals from the batteries or they
may explode. The following care should be taken:
• Check that the positive ª and negative ·
terminals of the batteries are positioned correctly
and load them as shown in the figure on the left.
• 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.
If chemicals from the batteries come in contact with
your skin, wash them off immediately with water. If
chemicals leak onto the unit, clean the unit
completely.

failure occurs, the clock is reset to “AM 12:00” right
away, while the tuner preset stations (see page 16) will
be erased in a few days. The clock indication will keep
flashing until you set the clock again.
• Remove the batteries when carrying the unit by hand
or in the trunk of a car. This prevents the power from
being accidentally turned on, thus avoiding wasteful
battery consumption.
To switch off the power supply completely
Unplug the AC power cord from the AC outlet. If the
batteries are inserted in the unit, take them out.

PLAYING COMPACT DISCS
Notes on compact discs
This unit has been designed only to play back the
following CDs.
• Digital audio CD
• Recordable digital audio CD (CD-R)
• Rewritable digital audio CD (CD-RW)
Storage
• After removing a disc from the unit, be sure to put it
back in its case.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high
temperatures from a heater, etc., high humidity or dust.
Cleaning discs
Before loading a disc, wipe off any dust, dirt or
fingerprints with a soft, dry cloth. Discs should be
cleaned by wiping radially, from the center to edge.
Never use thinner, benzine, record cleaner or antistatic
spray.
When playing a CD-R or CD-RW
You can play back finalized CD-R or CD-RW recorded
in music CD format or in MP3 format. (If a CD-RW
has been recorded in a different format, erase all the data
on the CD-RW completely before recording on it.)
• You can play back CD-R or CD-RW in music CD
format like an audio CD.
• Some CD-R or CD-RW may not be played back on
this unit because of their disc characteristics, damage
or stain on them, or if the player lens is dirty.
• The reflection factor of CD-RW is lower than that of
other CDs, possibly causing CD-RW to take longer
time to read.
• Removing the disc from its storage case and
replacing it
Press the center and lift out.
Notes for MP3 files
• The unit can only recognize files with “MP3” or “mp3”
as the extensions, which can be in any combination of
upper and lower cases. The file name needs to be up to
20 characters.
• This unit recognizes files and folders on a disc in the
following conditions:
– up to 640 MP3 files,
– up to 256 folders (including the root folder),
– up to 8th layers (including the root folder).
• It is recommended that you record your material at a
44.1-kHz sampling rate, using the 128-kbps data
transfer rate.
• Some MP3 files or discs may not be played back
because of their characteristics or recording conditions.
• MP3 discs require a longer readout time than normal
discs because of the complexity of the folder/file
configuration.
• MP3i and MP3 Pro are not available.
• The title, artist name and album name can be displayed
as the ID3 TAG (ID3v1/1.1) information.
Press to secure the disc.
• Handling
Incorrect
• Cleaning
Correct
Handling discs
Since dirty, damaged or warped discs could damage the
unit, care should be taken of the following:
• Do not touch the reflective recorded surface.
• Do not stick or write anything on the label side.
• Do not bend discs.

CASSETTE PLAYBACK
Notes on cassette tapes
Loading a cassette
• Use only type-I normal tapes. The recording/playback
characteristics of this unit are those for normal tapes,
which have different characteristics from CrO2 and
metal tapes.
• The use of tapes longer than 120 minutes is not

Notes:
• 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.
• The recording level is automatically set correctly, so it
is not affected by VOLUME. Thus, during recording
you can adjust the sound you are actually listening to
without affecting the recording level.

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the heads, capstan and
pinch roller
Cleaning is important!
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 satisfactorily.
To avoid these, clean the heads, capstan and pinch roller
every 10 hours of use.
Cleaning the CD pickup lens
If the CD pickup lens is dirty, the sound may be
degraded.
Open the disc door and clean the lens.
Use a blower (available at a camera store, etc.) to blow
off dust on the lens.
Head (recording/playback)
Erasure head
Pinch roller
Capstan
Blower
Open the cassette holder. Clean the heads, capstan
and pinch roller.
For effective cleaning, use a cleaning kit available at an
audio store.
After cleaning, make sure that the cleaning fluid has dried
completely before loading a cassette.
Lens
Cautions:
• Keep magnets and metallic objects away from the
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
an audio store. When demagnetizing the head, the unit
should be turned off.
As the erasure head of the unit is of magnetic type,
do not demagnetize it.
• Do not use anything other than alcohol for cleaning.
Thinner and benzine will damage the rubber pinch
roller.
