Caring for the frame and stand
Caring for the Screen
Your TV has a glossy frame and stand which have protection sheets attached to them. Peel
them off before use, but only after the TV has been properly placed. Take care with handling
the glossy frame and stand because these surfaces are delicate.
Normally, light dusting with a soft, non-scratching duster will keep your TV clean.
If you wish to wipe down the television, first unplug it. Then wipe gently with a soft cloth, slightly
moistened with water. You can add a few drops of mild liquid detergent to the water to help
remove spots of oily dirt.
• DO NOT allow liquid to enter the TV through the ventilation slots.
• DO NOT use strong or abrasive cleaners on the TV.
• DO NOT spray liquids or cleaners directly on the TV’s surface.
• DO NOT rub or scrub the TV harshly. Wipe the set gently with a soft cloth.
The screen is treated with an electrostatic-proof coating. When it gets dirty, wipe it gently with a
soft cloth. If the screen is very dirty, wipe it down with a cloth dipped in a diluted kitchen cleaner
and thoroughly wrung-out. Then wipe immediately after with a clean, dry cloth.
• DO NOT apply alcohol, organic solvents (like acetone), acidic or alkaline cleansers to the
screen. These will remove the coating layer and cause discolorations.
• DO NOT push or hit the screen. This could cause scratches on the screen surface and image
distortions.

Cable Users: After your auto tuner setup is complete, you may, (depending on the type of
hookup), have only 1 channel, usually 2, 3 or 4 in the auto tuner memory. This
is normal.
Notes:
• If you use a set top box (satellite or cable box), press Exit to skip this step.
• If you want to turn off the Auto Demo, press the MENU button.
We have an important note for customers who subscribe to basic cable services (do not have
a separate cable box) and plan to use their JVC TV remote control to select channels.
Once you run the Auto Tuner Setup (which detects and programs all the channels your TV is
receiving through the RF input), every channel number available from your cable company
will appear in your television’s Channel Summary and they will all be marked as available for
scanning. Even though every channel is detected and appears as available, you will only be
able to view those that you specifically subscribe to from your cable company. This will likely
mean there are blank channels between those channels you wish to scan or “surf”.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but it is important to note that this is
not a malfunction of your television. If you want to sequentially scan those channels you
subscribe to without blank ones in between, you can contact your cable company for their
cable box and remote, or manually deselect them using the edit / skip feature on page 33.

Customizing your TV
Aspect
Panorama - When watching a 4:3 aspect
picture it is stretched to fit the
dimensions of the 16:9 aspect
screen.
Cinema - This ratio “zooms in” on
the center part of a 4:3
aspect picture, blowing it up
proportionally to fill the 16:9
screen.
Full - When watching a 4:3 aspect picture,
it is stretched to fit the dimensions of
the TV. When watching a 16:9 aspect
picture, it displays 95% of the ratio.
Full Native - This ratio displays 100%
of the ratio. Normally, all
aspects except for Full Native
display about 95%.
Regular - When watching a 4:3 aspect
picture without modifying
the original picture to fit the
dimensions of your 16:9 screen.
Black bars will appear along the
picture’s sides. The picture will be
centered within the boundaries of
the 16:9 screen.
Allows you to adjust the way the image appears on your TV based on the format that is being
received.
Notes:
• Depending on the signal format, some aspect modes are unavailable.
• If you change the aspect mode after the television changed it to Full automatically, the
television will change to the aspect mode you choose. It also turns to Full automatically
when the TV receives an HD (1080p, 1080i or 720p) signal.
• In iPod mode, selections of Aspect menu changes to Full / Regular / 16:9 Mini / 4:3 Mini.
Slim - This aspect mode shrinks the
screen of a 16:9 broadcast to 4:3.
There are some programming that
is already stretched by mistake at
broadcasting companies, so this
mode corrects it. Black side bars will
appear.
