EXAMPLE
Notes:
•
Before
connecting
your
system,
make
sure
that
all
units
are
turned
off.
•
The
illustration
below
shows
some
examples
of
different
connections.
Terminal
connections
may
differ
depending
on
the
component
connected.
Be
sure
to
refer
to
the
instructions
provided
with
the
unit(s)
you
are
connecting.
•
Each
pair
of
input
(IN)
and
output
(OUT)
terminals
are
bridge-connected.
•
If
you’re
not
connecting
any
equipment
to
a
bridged
output
(OUT)
terminal,
be
sure
not
to
connect
any
other
cables
to
the
bridged
output
(OUT)
terminal
as
this
will
cause
the
terminating
resistance
switch
to
open
(auto
terminate
function).
•
When
making
a
bridge
connection,
connect
the
input
(IN)
and
output
(OUT)
terminals
on
the
monitor
to
separate
video
components.
(For
example,
if
both
terminals
are
connected
to
the
same
VCR,
resonance
may
occur
except
during
playback.
This
is
caused
by
the
same
video
signal
“looping”
between
the
VCRs,
and
is
not
a
malfunction.)
•
Select
the
video
input
signal
(INPUT
A(VIDEO)
or
INPUT
B
(VIDEO/Y/C))
with
the
INPUT
SELECT
buttons
on
the

When

TROUBLESHOOTING
Solutions
to
common
problems
related
to
your
monitor
are
described
here.
If
none
of
the
solutions
presented
here
solves
the
problem,
unplug
the
monitor
and
consult
a
JVC-authorized
dealer
or
service
center
for
assistance.
The
following
are
not
malfunctions:
●
When
a
bright
still
image
(such
as
a
white
cloth)
is
displayed
for
a
long
period,
it
may
appear
to
be
colored.
This
is
due
to
the
structure
of
the
cathode
ray
tube
and
will
be
deleted
when
another
image
is
displayed.
●
You
experience
a
mild
electric
shock
when
you
touch
the
picture
tube.
This
phenomenon
is
due
to
a
normal
buildup
of
static
electricity
on
the
CRT
and
is
not
harmful.
●
The
monitor
emits
a
strange
sound
when
the
room
temperature
changes
suddenly.
This
is
only
a
problem
if
an
abnormality
appears
on
the
screen
as
well.
●
If
two
or
more
monitors
are
operated
next
to
each
other,
their
images
may
shake
or
be
distorted.
This
phenomenon
is
due
to
mutual
interference;
it
is
not
a
malfunction.
Move
the
monitors
away
from
each
other
until
the
interference
disappears
or
turn
the
power
off
on
any
monitor
that
is
not
being
used.
