Will my JVC audio equipment designed for use in the U.S. work
The Home Audio equipment that U.S. JVC Corporation markets
in the United States is specifically designed to be used solely
in the United States. Most overseas countries use different voltages
and cycles than the United States. The standard voltage and cycles
used in the United States are 110 Volts at 60Hz. Many other countries
use 220-240 volts at 50Hz. While a voltage adapter can be employed
to lower the voltage to 110 volts, there is nothing to convert
the foreign cycles from 50Hz to 60Hz. This will cause the unit's
power supply to work harder and operate at a higher temperature
than it was designed for. This could eventually lead to a decreased
life span of the equipment. U.S. JVC corporation does not recommend
using the unit under the above conditions any such use would void
the unit's original warranty.
I recently purchased a Micro System and my FM Antenna was
Please check the packing box. The FM antenna is a simple
wire with clear insulation, which very often is mistake for piece
of flat wire. However, it has two ends. When it splits it forms
a T-shape similar to that highlighted in your manual.
Is it possible to connect a Turntable into the Aux Input on
my Micro System?
The input jack on your Micro System requires a source with a
pre-amplified output such as a CD Player, Cassette Deck or VCR.
A turntable has no pre- amplifier built into it so it requires
a special "phono" input to plug it into. A separate
pre-amplifier may be used between the turntable and AUX input.
However, JVC does not manufacture separate Turntable pre-amps.
My JVC Micro System keeps cycling through different sound
modes. Why and how do I stop it?
The Micro System is going through a Demonstration (DEMO)
Mode. This is to show you the different features your Micro system
is capable of. It will be activated when the unit is first plugged
into an outlet, after a power outage or if the DEMO button was
pressed. To shut off this feature simply press the DEMO button.
Note. On some units the DEMO button is also labeled FM MODE/MUTE.
