This symbol indicates that dangerous voltage which
can cause electric shock is present inside this unit.
This symbol alerts you to important operating and
maintenance instructions accompanying the unit.
Ensure that the AC power supply in your house complies with the identification sticker located on the back of your player. Install your player
horizontally, on a suitable base (furniture), with enough space around it for ventilation (3~4inches). Make sure the ventilation slots are not
covered. Do not stack anything on top of the player. Do not place the player on amplifiers or other equipment which may become hot.
Before moving the player, ensure the disc tray is empty. This player is designed for continuous use. Switching off the DVD player to the
stand-by mode does not disconnect the electrical supply. In order to disconnect the player completely from the power supply, remove the
main plug from the wall outlet, especially when left unused for a long period of time.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not
expose this appliance to rain or moisture.
CAUTION: TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK, MATCH

INSERT.
Wiring the Main Power Supply Plug(UK Only)
IMPORTANT NOTICE
The main lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse. The value of the fuse is indicated on the pin
face of the plug and if it requires replacing, a fuse approved to BS1362 of the same rating must be used.
During thunderstorms, disconnect the main plug from the
socket.
Main voltage peaks due to lightning could damage the unit.
Do not expose the unit to direct sun radiation or other heat
sources.
This could lead to overheating and malfunction of the unit.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover removed. If the cover is detachable and a replacement is required, it must be of the same
colour as the fuse fitted in the plug. Replacement covers are available from your dealer.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power point, you should
obtain a suitable safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer for assistance.
However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug. Do not connect the
plug to a main socket as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
Phones
Never attempt to insert bare wires directly into a main socket. A plug and fuse must be used at all times.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the main lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:–
BLUE = NEUTRAL
BROWN = LIVE
As these colours may not correspond to the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as
follows:–
The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE or BLACK.
The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured BROWN or RED.
WARNING: DO NOT CONNECT EITHER WIRE TO THE EARTH TERMINAL WHICH IS MARKED WITH
THE LETTER E OR BY THE EARTH SYMBOL
, OR COLOURED GREEN OR GREEN
AND YELLOW.

(About the cooling fan)
A cooling fan is mounted on the rear panel of the center unit to
prevent abnormal temperature inside the center unit, thus assuring
normal operation. The cooling fan automatically starts rotating to
supply external cool air to the inside of the center unit when the
internal temperature exceeds the specified limit.
11
For safety, observe the following carefully.
• Make sure there is good ventilation around the center unit.
Poor ventilation could overheat and cause damage.
• DO NOT block the cooling fan and the ventilation openings or
holes. (If they are blocked by a newspaper or cloth, etc., the heat
may not be able to escape.)

MP3-CD Playback
This system has a built-in MP3 decoder.
You can play back MP3 tracks (files)recorded on CD-Rs, CD-RWs, and CD-ROMs.
What is MP3? MP3 is an abbreviation of Motion Picture Experts Group (or MPEG) Audio Layer 3.
MP3 is simply a file format with a data compression ratio of 1:10 (128 Kbps*). That means,by using MP3
format, one CD-R or CD-RW can contain 10 times as much data volume as a regular CD can.

Operations Using the On-Screen Display

When recording your own CD-R or CD-RW
discs, make sure that the recording session is
properly terminated, or they will not be

recording quality, some CD-R/RWs may not be
playable.)
• CD-RW has a lower reflection rate than CD-R
media and consequently it will take a longer to
read CD-R discs.
• CD-RW discs recorded at high speed tend to
be difficult for the DVD player to read. If the
recording speed for the CD-RW disc is not
predetermined, write it at low speed.

The horizontal to vertical screen size ratio of conventional TVs is 4:3 while that of wide screen and high
definition TVs is 16:9. This ratio is called the aspect ratio. When playing DVDs recorded in different screen
size, you should adjust the aspect ratio to fit your TV or monitor.
✱ For a standard TV, select either "4:3LB" or "4:3PS" option according to
personal preference. Select "16:9" if you have a wide screen TV.

• Dolby Pro-Logic II is a new multi-channel playback format developed by Dolby Laboratories using feedback logic
steering technology and offering improvements over conventional Dolby Pro Logic circuits.
• Dolby Pro Logic II can be used to decode not only sources recorded in Dolby Surround (
) but also
regular stereo sources into five channels (front left, front right, center, surround left and surround right) to achieve
surround sound.
• Whereas with conventional Dolby Pro Logic the surround channel playback frequency band was limited, Dolby Pro
Logic II offers a wider band range.
In addition, the surround channels were monaural (the surround left and right channels were the same) with previous
Dolby Pro Logic, but with Dolby Pro Logic II they are stereo.
The display changes depending on the current audio output

These are sources in which three or more channels of surround have been recorded as two channels of signals
using Dolby Surround encoding technology.
Dolby Surround is used for the sound tracks of movies recorded on DVDs, LDs and video cassettes to be played on
stereo VCRs, as well as for the stereo broadcast signals of FM radio, TV, satellite broadcasts and cable TV.
Decoding these signals with Dolby Pro Logic makes it possible to achieve multi-channel surround playback.
The signals can also be played on ordinary stereo equipment, in which case they provide normal stereo sound.

To increase Effect level
DSP modes have been designed to simulate different acoustic environments.
The sound heard in a hall, theater, pavilion, dance club, or live club consists of direct

Direct sounds reach the listener directly without any reflection.
Indirect sounds are delayed by the distance of the ceiling and walls.
These indirect sounds are an important element of the acoustic surround effect.
