IMPORTANT NOTE TO THE CUSTOMER In the spaces below, enter the model and serial number of your television (located at the rear of the television cabinet). Staple your sales receipt or invoice to 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. Serial Number Model Number LCT1128-001B-A 0602-TN-FAA-JIM IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS CAUTION 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. WARNING: TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARDS, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS TV SET TO RAIN OR MOISTURE. CAUTION: TO INSURE PERSONAL SAFETY, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING RULES REGARDING THE USE OF THIS UNIT. 1. Operate only from the power source specified on the unit. 2. Avoid damaging the AC plug and power cord. 3. Avoid Improper installation and never position the unit where good ventilation is unattainable. 4. Do not allow objects or liquid into the cabinet openings. 5. In the event of trouble, unplug the unit and call a service technician. Do not attempt to repair it yourself or remove the rear cover. Changes or modifications not approved by JVC could void the warranty. * When you don’t use this TV set for a long period of time, be sure to disconnect both the power plug from the AC outlet and antenna for your safety. * To prevent electric shock do not use this polarized plug with an extension cord, receptacle or other outlet unless the blades can be fully inserted to prevent blade exposure. IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS CAUTION: 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 potential 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. INSTALLATION 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. (POLARIZED-TYPE) 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 hazard. 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. IMPORTANT RECYCLING INFORMATION This product utilizes both a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) and other components that contain lead. Disposal of these materials may be regulated in your community due to environmental considerations. For disposal or recycling information, please contact your local authorities, or the Electronic Industries Alliance: http://www.eiae.org 7 An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal. EXAMPLE OF ANTENNA GROUNDING AS PER NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE 8 TV sets are provided with ventilation openings in the cabinet to allow heat generated during operation to be released. Therefore: — Never block the bottom ventilation slots of a portable TV set by placing it on a bed, sofa, rug, etc. — Never place a TV set in a “built-in” enclosure unless proper ventilation is provided. — Never cover the openings with a cloth or other material. — Never place the TV set near or over a radiator or heat register. 9 To avoid personal injury: — Do not place a TV set on a sloping shelf unless properly secured. — Use only a cart or stand recommended by the TV set manufacturer. — Do not try to roll a cart with small casters across thresholds or deep pile carpets. — Wall or shelf mounting should follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and should use a mounting kit approved by the manufacturer. USE 10 Caution children about dropping or pushing objects into the TV set through cabinet openings. Some internal parts carry hazardous voltages and contact can result in a fire or electrical shock. 11 Unplug the TV set from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid or an aerosol cleaner. 12 Never add accessories to a TV set that has not been designed for this purpose. Such additions may result in a hazard. 13 For added protection of the TV set during a lightning storm or when the TV set is to be left unattended for an extended period of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna. This will prevent damage to product due to lightning storms or power line surges. 14 A TV set and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the TV set and cart combination to overturn. SERVICE 15 Unplug this TV set from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: A. When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed. B. If liquid has been spilled into the TV set. C. If the TV set has been exposed to rain or water. D. If the TV set does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered in the operating instructions as improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the TV set to normal operation. E. If the TV set has been dropped or damaged in any way. F. When the TV set exhibits a distinct change in performance — this indicates a need for service. 16 Do not attempt to service this TV set yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. 17 When replacement parts are required, have the service technician verify in writing that the replacement parts he uses have the same safety characteristics as the original parts. Use of manufacturer’s specified replacement parts can prevent fire, shock, or other hazards. 18 Upon completion of any service or repairs to this TV set, please ask the service technician to perform the safety check described in the manufacturer’s service literature. 19 When a TV set reaches the end of its useful life, improper disposal could result in a picture tube implosion. Ask a qualified service technician to dispose of the TV set. 20 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.

Your television has 2-Tuner PIP, meaning you can view pictures from two different channels simultaneously. A special set of PIP control buttons are located on the upper part of the remote control. Descriptions of each button appear on this page. The PIP feature is available on series D503 models only. Cable Box Note The 2-Tuner PIP function may not operate when used with certain cable boxes. This is because while some models of cable box may receive up to 181 channels, they may only send the signal from one channel to your television (please also see diagram on page 11). For the PIP tuner to operate correctly, it must have access to all available channels. Since the television is receiving the signal of only one channel from the cable box, it is impossible for the 2Tuner PIP to display a second, different channel. Because there are many different models of cable boxes in use today, if you are having problems operating your PIP feature with your cable box, we recommend you contact your local cable company for connection advice.

Use the V2 COMPOSITE-IN to properly display the PIP signal. EZ-Surf (AV-27D503, AV-32D503, AV-36D503 only) EZ-Surf utilizes the PIP window to surf all the available channels so that you don’t have to change your current program to see what else is on TV. • If the PIP window is off, you can see the channel and XDS only.
