Important Safety Precautions
Prior to shipment from the factory, JVC products are strictly inspected to conform with the recognized product safety and electrical codes of the
countries in which they are to be sold. However, in order to maintain such compliance, it is equally important to implement the following precautions
when a set is being serviced.
1. Locations requiring special caution are denoted by labels and in-
scriptions on the cabinet, chassis and certain parts of the product.
When performing service, be sure to read and comply with these
and other cautionary notices appearing in the operation and serv-
2. Parts identified by the ! symbol and shaded ( ) parts are
critical for safety.
Replace only with specified part numbers.
Note: Parts in this category also include those specified to com-
ply with X-ray emission standards for products using
cathode ray tubes and those specified for compliance
with various regulations regarding spurious radiation
3. Fuse replacement caution notice.
Caution for continued protection against fire hazard.
Replace only with same type and rated fuse(s) as specified.
4. Use specified internal wiring. Note especially:
1) Wires covered with PVC tubing
2) Double insulated wires
3) High voltage leads
5. Use specified insulating materials for hazardous live parts. Note
1) Insulation Tape 3) Spacers 5) Barrier
2) PVC tubing 4) Insulation sheets for transistors
6. When replacing AC primary side components (transformers, power
cords, noise blocking capacitors, etc.) wrap ends of wires securely
about the terminals before soldering.
10. Also check areas surrounding repaired locations.
11. Products using cathode ray tubes (CRTs)
In regard to such products, the cathode ray tubes themselves, the
high voltage circuits, and related circuits are specified for compli-
ance with recognized codes pertaining to X-ray emission.
Consequently, when servicing these products, replace the cath-
ode ray tubes and other parts with only the specified parts. Under
no circumstances attempt to modify these circuits.
Unauthorized modification can increase the high voltage value and
cause X-ray emission from the cathode ray tube.
12. Crimp type wire connector
In such cases as when replacing the power transformer in sets
where the connections between the power cord and power trans-
former primary lead wires are performed using crimp type connec-
tors, if replacing the connectors is unavoidable, in order to prevent
safety hazards, perform carefully and precisely according to the
1) Connector part number : E03830-001
2) Required tool : Connector crimping tool of the proper type which
will not damage insulated parts.
3) Replacement procedure
(1) Remove the old connector by cutting the wires at a point
close to the connector.
Important : Do not reuse a connector (discard it).
cut close to connector
(2) Strip about 15 mm of the insulation from the ends of the
wires. If the wires are stranded, twist the strands to avoid
(3) Align the lengths of the wires to be connected. Insert the
wires fully into the connector.
(4) As shown in Fig.6, use the crimping tool to crimp the metal
sleeve at the center position. Be sure to crimp fully to the
complete closure of the tool.
Precautions during Servicing
7. Observe that wires do not contact heat producing parts (heatsinks,
oxide metal film resistors, fusible resistors, etc.)
8. Check that replaced wires do not contact sharp edged or pointed
9. When a power cord has been replaced, check that 10-15 kg of
force in any direction will not loosen it.
(5) Check the four points noted in Fig.7.
