RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
DO NOT OPEN
CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK.
DO NOT REMOVE COVER (OR BACK).
NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE.
REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL.
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within an equilateral
triangle, is intended to alert the user to the presence of
uninsulated "dangerous voltage" within the product's enclosure
that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric
shock to persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to
alert the user to the presence of important operating and
maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature
accompanying the appliance.
Failure to heed the following precautions may result in
damage to the VCR, remote control or video cassette.
1. DO NOT place the VCR . . .
...in an environment prone to extreme temperatures or
...in direct sunlight.
...in a dusty environment.
...in an environment where strong magnetic fields are
...on a surface that is unstable or subject to vibration.
2. DO NOT block the VCR’s ventilation openings.
3. DO NOT place heavy objects on the VCR or remote control.
4. DO NOT place anything which might spill on top of the
VCR or remote control.
5. AVOID violent shocks to the VCR during transport.
Moisture in the air will condense on the VCR when you move it
from a cold place to a warm place, or under extremely humid
conditions—just as water droplets form on the surface of a glass
filled with cold liquid. Moisture condensation on the head drum
will cause damage to the tape. In conditions where condensa-
tion may occur, keep the VCR’s power turned on for a few
hours to let the moisture dry before inserting a tape.
**ABOUT HEAD CLEANING
Accumulation of dirt and other particles on the video heads
may cause the playback picture to become blurred or inter-
rupted. Be sure to contact your nearest JVC dealer if such
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.
nCassettes marked "VHS" (or "S-VHS") can be used with this
video cassette recorder. However, only "VHS" recordings can
be played back in this model.
