Prior to shipment from the factory, JVC products are strictly in-
spected to conform with the recognized product safety and elec-
trical 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
1.1.1 Precautions during Servicing
(1) Locations requiring special caution are denoted by labels
and inscriptions 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 service manuals.
(2) Parts identified by the
are critical for safety.
Replace only with specified part numbers.
Parts in this category also include those specified to
comply with X-ray emission standards for products
using cathode ray tubes and those specified for
compliance with various regulations regarding spu-
rious radiation emission.
(3) Fuse replacement caution notice.
Caution for continued protection against fire hazard.
Replace only with same type and rated fuse(s) as speci-
(4) Use specified internal wiring. Note especially:
• Wires covered with PVC tubing
• Double insulated wires
• High voltage leads
(5) Use specified insulating materials for hazardous live parts.
• Insulation Tape
• PVC tubing
• 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.
(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
(9) When a power cord has been replaced, check that 10-15
kg of force in any direction will not loosen it.
(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 volt-
age circuits, and related circuits are specified for compli-
ance with recognized codes pertaining to X-ray emission.
symbol and shaded (
Consequently, when servicing these products, replace the
cathode ray tubes and other parts with only the specified
parts. Under no circumstances attempt to modify these cir-
cuits.Unauthorized modification can increase the high volt-
age value and cause X-ray emission from the cathode ray
(12) Crimp type wire connectorIn such cases as when replacing
the power transformer in sets where the connections be-
tween the power cord and power trans former primary lead
wires are performed using crimp type connectors, if replac-
ing the connectors is unavoidable, in order to prevent safe-
ty hazards, perform carefully and precisely according to the
• Connector part number :E03830-001
• Required tool : Connector crimping tool of the proper
type which will not damage insulated parts.
• Replacement procedure
a) Remove the old connector by cutting the wires at a
point close to the connector.Important : Do not re-
use a connector (discard it).
cut close to connector
b) Strip about 15 mm of the insulation from the ends
of the wires. If the wires are stranded, twist the
strands to avoid frayed conductors.
c) Align the lengths of the wires to be connected. In-
sert the wires fully into the connector.
d) As shown in Fig.1-1-6, 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.
e) Check the four points noted in Fig.1-1-7.
