IMPORTANT NOTE TO THE CUSTOMER
In the space below, enter the model number and serial number of your television

the inside cover of this guide. Keep this user's guide in a convenient place for
future reference. Keep the carton and original packaging for future use.
Please read and retain for your safety.
Electrical energy can perform many useful functions. This TV set has been engineered
and manufactured to assure your personal safety. But improper use can result in poten-
tial electrical shock or fire hazards. In order not to defeat the safeguards incorporated in
this TV set, observe the following basic rules for its installation, use and servicing.
And also follow all warnings and instructions marked on your TV set.
1 Your TV set is equipped with a polarized AC line plug (one blade of the plug is wider
than the other).
This safety feature allows the plug to fit into the power outlet only one way. Should
you be unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug.
Should it still fail to fit, contact your electrician.
2 Operate the TV set only from a power source as indicated on the TV set or refer to the
operating instructions for this information. If you are not sure of the type of power
supply to your home, consult your TV set dealer or local power company. For battery
operation, refer to the operating instructions.
3 Overloaded AC outlets and extension cords are dangerous, and so are frayed power
cords and broken plugs. They may result in a shock or fire hazard. Call your service
technician for replacement.
4 Do not allow anything to rest on or roll over the power cord, and do not place the TV
set where power cord is subject to traffic or abuse. This may result in a shock or fire
5 Do not use this TV set near water -- for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen
sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near swimming pool, etc.
6 If an outside antenna is connected to the TV set, be sure the antenna system is
grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static
charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code provides information with
respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the
lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of
antenna discharge unit, connection requirements for the grounding electrode.

We recommend that before you start using your new television, you read this entire User's Guide so
you can learn about your new television's many great features. But if you're anxious to start using
your television right away, a quick setup guide follows on the next three pages.
Unpacking Your Television
BNC connection box
Raise the latch on the remote's back cover, or push down on the back cover and slide the cover
towards the bottom of the remote control to remove. Insert two batteries carefully noting the "+" and
"" markings, placing the "" end in the unit first. Slide or snap the cover back into place.
These quick setup pages will provide you, in three easy steps, with the basic information you need
to begin using your new television right away. This information includes basic instructions on
operating your remote control, making a simple cable/antenna and optional VCR connection and,
finally, information on programming your television's Auto Tuner.
If you have questions, or for more detailed information on any of these steps, please consult the
other detailed sections of this guide.
Step One - The Remote Control
The remote control is the key to operating your television's many great features. Before you can
operate your remote control, you first need to install the batteries (included).
Turn the television on and off by pressing the POWER button at the top right corner of the remote.
The four key feature buttons at the center of the remote can be used for basic operation of the
television. The top and bottom buttons will scan forward and back through the available channels.
The right and left buttons will turn the volume up or down. These buttons are also marked with four
arrows and are also used with JVC's onscreen menu system. You will need to use these buttons
later in the Quick Setup.
The next step is to connect your television to an antenna or cable.

To move to START
To start Auto Tuner Setup
The Auto Tuner will now memorize all of the clear, active channels your television can receive. This
will take one or two minutes.
Step Three - Auto Tuner Setup
JVC's onscreen menu system lets you set your television up to meet your own personal viewing
preferences. The menu screens and their features are discussed in detail in this book. The menu
settings are optional, you can set as many or as few of them as you wish. But to begin watching
your television right away you will need to run the Auto Tuner Setup. This lets your television learn
the channels it is able to receive. To run the Auto Tuner Setup follow the steps below.
The Auto Tuner is finished when the message PROGRAMMING OVER! appears onscreen.
The Auto Tuner programming is now complete. You can now begin watching your television, or you can
continue on in this guide for more information on connecting audio/video devices, programming your
remote control, or using the JVC onscreen menu system to customize your television viewing experience.

Step Two - Making Basic Connections
Next you will need to connect your television to an antenna or cable system. The most basic
antenna/cable connection is shown below. For more detailed connections, such as ones where a
cable box is required, see pages 11 and 12.
You may also wish to connect a VCR at this point. A basic stereo VCR connection is shown below. For
detailed instructions on connecting other components or a home theater system, see pages 11 to 14.
Note: A VCR is not required to operate your television.All others use connections shown on pages 11

jack, OR connect an S-Video cable from the VCR's S-Video Output, to the TV's S-Video Input.
2) Connect the white audio cable out from the VCR's Left Audio Output, in to the TV's Left Audio
3) Connect the red audio cable out from the VCR's Right Audio Output, in to the TV's Right
Audio Input jack.
Finally, once you have finished your connections, plug the power cord into the nearest power outlet
and turn on the television.
