Getting Started
Installing the Equipment on the Wall
The Center Unit and Speakers can be attached to a wall.
CAUTIONS:
Attachment to a wall
• The Center Unit weighs approximately 4.3 kg. When its buttons are operated, an additional force will be
applied to it in the downward direction. Therefore, sufficient care must be taken when attaching to a wall
to prevent any accidents caused by the Center Unit’s falling off the wall.
• Before attaching the Center Unit to the wall, check the wall and other related aspects, and verify whether
the strength of the wall will be sufficient not only to support the weight of the Center Unit itself but also
to withstand the additional downward force which will be applied to it during operation. (Do not attach
the Center Unit to a plywood or plasterboard wall. The Center Unit may fall and sustain damage as a re-
sult.) If you do not know the strength of the wall and other aspects, consult a qualified service person
(such as a qualified constructor).
• The screws needed for attachment are not supplied. Use screws which are compatible with the strength
and material of the pillar or wall.
• When attaching the Center Unit, the screws must be secured tightly in all three locations. Attaching the
Center Unit to the wall by making only one or two holes for the screws makes for an unstable attachment
and causes a safety hazard as the Center Unit may fall down.
Location of attachment to a wall
• Care is required in selecting a location for attaching the Center Unit to the wall. Injury to personnel, or
damage to the Center Unit, may result if the Center Unit is attached in a location which interferes with
daily activities or a location that the users are liable to knock their bodies or heads against.
• Avoid a location above a bed, sofa, water tank, sink, etc. or in a passage.
Example of attachment (Center Unit)
The procedure below is intended merely to illustrate how the
Center Unit can be attached to a wall and does not make any
guarantees for safety while using the Center Unit on a wall.
Take into account such factors as the material and strength of
the wall, the status of the reinforcing material, and the possible
changes that will take place over time.
• The cords must be connected to the Center Unit before
attaching to a wall. (See page 4.)
1. Select the place where the Center Unit is to be attached.
2. Mount three screws (not supplied) on the wall. (See the dia-
gram below for the details of the size.)
• The supplied paper pattern will assist in determining the
positions of the screws.
3. Hook the Center Unit onto the attached screws.
4. Slide the Center Unit to the side, and secure it.
• Adjust the screws if the Center Unit is not attached firmly.

Getting Started
• Do not place anything on top of the Center Unit. Doing so may cause the Center Unit to fall, causing malfunctioning and/or injury.
• Do not climb onto the Center Unit or hang from it. Doing so may damage the Center Unit and/or cause injury. Special care
must be taken in this respect when there are small children in the home.
• Avoid sandwiching the cords between the Center Unit and wall. This may upset the Center Unit’s balance, causing the Center
Unit to fall.
• Make sure that the cords will not interfere with daily activities and that the users will not trip over them. Do not pull the con-
nected cords with excessive force.
• Check regularly that none of the screws are loose.
• In the event that the Center Unit has fallen, turn off the power, disconnect its power plug from the power outlet, and contact
your dealer for an inspection and repairs. Continued use of the Center Unit may result in a fire or electric shocks.
• Do not place valuables (breakables) underneath the location where the Center Unit is attached. They will be damaged if the
Center Unit should fall.
• The manufacturer accepts absolutely no liability for any accidents or damage resulting from inadequate assembly or mount-
ing, insufficient strength of attachment, misuse or abuse, or natural disasters.
Changing the Display and Control Buttons Settings
You can change the direction of the characters and symbols on the dis-
play and the assignment of the functions to each control button on the
Unit. Change the settings depending on whether the Unit is placed ver-
tically or horizontally. The factory setting is “V”.
Example of attachment (Speakers) (SP-VSDT6 only)
The speakers can be attached to a wall.
Attach a screw (not supplied) on the wall, then hook the speaker
onto the screw.
Now you can plug the AC power cord into the wall outlet, and your System is at your
command!
Before operating, verify that the display shows the clock. If malfunctions may occur, re-
connect the power cord.
When the Unit is placed vertically
Set the DISP.SET switch to “V”.
When the Unit is placed horizontally
Set the DISP.SET switch to “H”.

Using the Remote Control
The Remote Control makes it easy to use many of the functions of the System from a distance of up to 7 m away.
The remote sensor at which you need to point the Remote Control differs depending on whether the Unit is placed vertically
or horizontally.
• Make sure that the "DISP.SET" switch on the rear of the Unit is set correctly.
COMPU Play
JVC’s COMPU PLAY feature lets you control the most frequently used System functions with a single touch.
With One Touch Operation you can play a CD, turn on the radio, or listen to an external equipment with a single press of the
play button for that function. One Touch Operation turns the power on for you, then starts the function you have specified. If
the System is not ready (no CD in place), the System still powers on so you can insert a CD.
How One Touch Operation works in each case is explained in the section dealing with that function.
The COMPU PLAY buttons are:
On the Remote Control
3/8 button
FM/AM button
MD/AUX button
On the Unit

programme type is displayed. “NO PTY” appears if no sig-
nal is sent.
RT (Radio Text):
While searching, “WAIT RT” appears, then a text message
sent by the station is displayed. “NO RT” appears if no signal
is sent.
Station Frequency:

Care And Maintenance
Handle your CDs carefully, and they will last a long time.
Compact Discs
CAUTION:
• Do not use any solvent (for example, con-
ventional record cleaner, spray thinner,
benzine, etc.) to clean a CD.
Moisture Condensation
Moisture may condense on the lens inside the System in the
following cases:
• After turning on heating in the room.
• In a damp room.
• If the System is brought directly from a cold to a warm
place.
Should this occur, the System may malfunction. In this
case, leave the System turned on for a few hours until the
moisture evaporates, unplug the AC power cord, and then
plug it in again.
General Notes
In general, you will have the best performance by keeping
your CDs and the mechanism clean.
• Store CDs in their cases, and keep them in cabinets or on
shelves.
• Keep the System’s Panel closed when not in use.
Cleaning the unit
• Stains on the unit
Should be wiped off with a soft cloth. If the unit is heavily
stained, wipe it with a cloth soaked in water-diluted neu-
tral detergent and wrung well, then wipe clean with a dry
cloth.
• Since the unit may deteriorate in quality, become dam-
aged or get its paint peeled off, be careful about the fol-
lowings.
- DO NOT wipe it with a hard cloth.
- DO NOT wipe it strong.
- DO NOT wipe it with thinner or benzine.
- DO NOT apply any volatile substance such as insecti-
cides to it.
- DO NOT allow any rubber or plastic to remain in con-
tact with it for a long time.
• Only CDs bearing this mark can
be used with this System. How-
ever, continued use of irregular
shape CDs (heart-shape, octago-
nal, etc.) can damage the System.
• Do not stick a paper tape or a seal
on the reading side or the label
side.
If you do so, the CD may not be
unloaded, or the System can be
damaged.
• Remove the CD from its case by
holding it at the edges while press-
ing the case’s center hole lightly.
• Do not touch the shiny surface of
the CD, or bend the CD.
• Put the CD back in its case after
use to prevent warping.
• Be careful not to scratch the sur-
face of the CD when placing it
back in the case.
• Avoid exposure to direct sunlight,
temperature extremes, and moisture.
• A dirty CD may not play cor-
rectly. If a CD does become dirty,
wipe it with a soft cloth in a
straight line from center to edge.
