Accidental Operation Prevention Function (Hold Mode)

This function causes the unit to ignore short, accidental button
presses.
The misoperation prevention function pre-vents the following:
• Powering on the unit accidentally (which can cause the batter-
ies to go dead).
Play being cut off unexpectedly in the middle of a selection.
The unit and wired remote control have HOLD switches, each of
which works independently.
To use the accidental operation preventionfunction
To prevent the unit from powering up accidentally, set the
HOLD switch to the HOLD position.
To prevent the unit from unexpected operation during play,
set the HOLD switch to the HOLD position after playing the
disc.

Note:
• Recharging already charged batteries will shorten their service
life.
• When recharging batteries for the first time or when they have
not been used for a long period of time, the play time may be
shorter than usual. In a case like this, repeatedly recharge and
discharge the batteries. This will restore them to their regular
state.
Do not allow any metal objects to touch the terminals of re-
chargeable batteries since this may cause short-circuiting
which is dangerous.
• Do not peel off the plastic covering on the rechargeable batter-
ies. Short-circuiting may occur which is dangerous.
Dry cell batteries / rechargeablebatteries
To prevent damage to the batteries and electrolyte leakage, heed
the following points.
• Align the , and . polarities properly when inserting the bat-
teries.
Do not mix different types or makers of batteries or old and
new batteries.
Remove the batteries if you do not plan to use the unit for a
long period of time.
• Do not throw batteries into a fire, and do not short-circuit, dis-
assemble or subject them to excessive heat.
Do not attempt to recharge dry cell batteries.
Carrying dry cell batteries /rechargeable batteries around
When putting dry cell or rechargeable batteries in a pocket or
bag, ensure that no other metal objects such as a necklace are
placed together with them. Contact with metal may cause short-
circuiting which, in turn, may cause a fire.
Be absolutely sure to carry the rechargeable batteries in the bat-
tery carrying case.
Listening caution
Do not play your headphones or earphones at a high volume.
Hearing experts advise against continuous extended play.
If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce volume or dis-
continue use.
Do not use while operating a motorized vehicle. It may create a
traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.
You should use extreme caution or temporarily discontinue use
in potentially hazardous situations.
Even if your headphones or earphones is an open-air type de-
signed to let you hear outside sounds, don’t turn up the volume
so high that you can’t hear what’s around you.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level”
adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal”
can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing.
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BE-
FORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
Start your volume control at a low setting.
Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably
and clearly, and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
Rechargeable batteries
Only the BN-R122J battery can be recharged.
If the power delivered by the batteries lasts for a very short
time after recharging, it means that the batteries’ service life is
over. Do not use them any more.
When purchasing rechargeablebatteries
As a safety precaution, the portable CD players made by JVC
have a construction designed to make it impossible to recharge
ordinary batteries.
To use rechargeable batteries, be absolutely sure to purchase the
rechargeable Ni-Cd batteries designed especially for this unit.
Special rechargeable Ni-Cd batteries:
BN-R122J (set of 2)
For details, check with your dealer.
When driving a car
In the interest of traffic safety, do not operate the unit while driv-
ing.
