Maintenance
SERVICING
1. Please refer to relevant topics in the “Troubleshooting” on page 85 before returning the product.
2. Do not attempt to service this unit yourself. Instead, unplug it and contact a SHARP Approved Service Centre for
inspection.
3. Be sure the service technician uses authorised replacement parts or their equivalents. Unauthorised parts may cause
fire, electrical shock, or other hazards.
4. Following any service or repair, be sure the service technician performs safety checks to certify that this unit is in safe
operating order.
CLEANING THE CABINET
• Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use a solution containing alcohol, spirits,
ammonia or abrasive.
CLEANING DISCS
• When a disc becomes dirty, clean it with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the centre out. Do not wipe in a circular

Soiling or friction affecting the pickup lens or disc drive can impair the image quality. At the worst, neither video
nor audio will be played back. To maintain optimum picture quality, the Player should be serviced (cleaned
and replacement of some parts) every 1,000 hours. Note that this period varies depending on the environment
(temperature, humidity, dust, etc.) in which the unit is used. Contact your authorised SHARP supplier for details.

“Playback” menu so that “P.SCAN” will appear on the display of this unit. See pages 81-82 for more details.
• If your TV is not compatible with progressive scanning, use this unit in interlace mode. Make sure that no “P.SCAN”
is on the display of this unit. If so, set “Video Out” to “Component Interlace (I)” in the “Video” of the “Playback”
menu so that “P.SCAN” on the display of this unit will disappear.
• (Analogue) AUDIO OUT jacks and Scart terminal are not available on the DTS audio.

Changing the
Setup menu
DVD players bearing the
logo are capable
of playing back DVD-RW discs recorded in VR
mode.
You cannot record copy-protected video using this
unit. Copy-protected video includes DVD-Videos
and some satellite broadcasts.
If copy-protected material is detected, recording
will pause or stop automatically and an error
message appears on the screen.
You can only record “Copy-once only” video
using a DVD-RW disc in VR mode with Content
Protection for Recordable Media (CPRM).
When recording a TV broadcast or an external
input, you can display copy control information on
the screen.
CPRM is a scrambling copy protection system
for the protection of “copy-once” broadcast
programmes. This unit is CPRM compatible, which
means that you can record copy-once broadcast
programmes, but you cannot then make a copy
of those recordings. CPRM recordings can only be
played back on DVD players that are specifically
compatible with CPRM.
Editing
Video mode and VR (Video Recording) mode
Video mode is the same recording format as used
on the pre-recorded DVD-Videos you purchase
in local shops, so you can play back the discs
recorded in this format in most DVD players.
You will need to finalise such discs (see pages
38-39) before playing them back in other DVD
players. Unless finalised, you can record additional
materials or edit discs recorded in Video mode
with this unit.
VR (Video Recording) mode is a basic recording
format for DVD-RW discs. You can record and
edit material repeatedly. It is impossible to record
additional materials on a disc formatted in VR
mode and already recorded in another video
system other than PAL, such as NTSC.

• This unit cannot record on CD-RW or CD-R discs.
• DVD-RW/-R and CD-RW/-R discs recorded on
a personal computer or a DVD or CD recorder
may not be played back if the disc is damaged
or dirty or if there is condensation on the
player’s lens.
• If you record a disc using a personal computer,
even if it is recorded in a compatible format, it
may not be played back because of the settings
of the application software used to create the
disc. (Check with the software publisher for
more detailed information.)
• Discs recorded in Video mode on this unit
cannot record additional information using
other DVD recorders.
• It is not possible to use a DVD-RW disc
formatted with this unit on other DVD recorder
unless the content of the disc was also
recorded with this unit.
• Since recording is performed using the Variable
Bit Rate (VBR) method, the actual remaining
time for recording may be a little shorter than
the remaining time displayed on the OSD,
depending on the picture you are recording.

Glossary
Analogue audio
An electrical signal that directly
represents sound. In contrast,
digital audio can also be an
electrical signal, but is an indirect
representation of sound. See also
Digital audio.
DTS
(Digital Theater System)
DTS is a Multi-channel surround
sound system, but it is different
from Dolby Digital. Both formats
were developed by Digital
Theater Systems, Inc.
Aspect ratio
The width of a TV screen relative
to its height. Conventional TVs
are 4:3 (i.e., the screen is almost
square). Widescreen models are
16:9 (the screen is almost twice
as wide as its height).
Finalise
To make DVDs that have been
recorded playable in DVD players.
It is possible to finalise DVD-RW/-R
discs with this unit.
JPEG
(Joint Photographic Experts
Group)
JPEG is a method of compressing
still image files. You can copy
JPEG files on CD-RW/-R discs
from a computer and play back
the files on this unit.
MP3
(MPEG Audio Layer 3)
MP3 is a method of compressing
files. You can copy MP3 files on
CD-RW/-R discs from a computer
and play back the files on this
unit.
PBC (Video CD only)
(Playback Control)
This function enables you to play
back interactive software using a
menu screen. See also Title.
PCM
(Pulse Code Modulation)
PCM is a format that converts
audio into digital data. It is
mainly used for Audio CDs and
DAT. This unit can play back
sounds as realistic as possible
by converting even compressed
Dolby Digital and MPEG audio to
PCM.
Chapter
Just as a book is split up into
several chapters, a title on a
DVD disc is usually divided into
chapters. See also Title.
CM SKIP
This unit can skip TV commercials
during DVD Video playback.
Once [CM SKIP] is pressed, the
start point will be set forward 30
seconds and playback resume
automatically. (You can press
[CM SKIP] up to 6 times.)
CPRM
(Content Protection for
Recordable Media)
CPRM is a scrambling copy
protection system for the
protection of “copy-once”
broadcast programmes (e.g.
some satellite broadcasts).
Digital audio
An indirect representation of
sound using numbers. During
recording, the sound is measured
at discrete intervals (44 or 100
times a second for CD audio) by
an analogue-todigital converter,
generating a stream of numbers.
On playback, a digital-toanalogue converter generates an
analogue signal based on these
numbers. See also Sampling
frequency and Analogue audio.
Dolby Digital
A system developed by Dolby
Laboratories that compresses
digital sound. It works with stereo
(2ch) or multi-channel audio.

Playlist
From this list you can play back
contents of a disc in your desired
order or in sequence. It is also
possible to directly search for a
specific scene.
Region code
Regions associate discs and
players with particular areas of
the world. This unit will only play
back discs that have compatible
region codes. You can find the
region code of your unit by
looking on the rear panel. Some
discs are compatible with more
than one region (or all regions).
Sampling frequency
The rate at which sound is
measured by a specified interval
to turn it into digital audio
data. The number of samples
in one second is defined as the
sampling frequency. The higher
the rate is, the better the possible
sound quality.
S-Video output
Video is output as the individual
signals of colour(C) and
luminance(Y), so a higher-quality
picture will be displayed.
Title
(DVD)
A collection of chapters on a
DVD. See also chapter.
(Video CD)
The contents of a Video CD.
When playing back a Video CD
with the PBC function, the Title
menu will appear automatically.
Track
Audio CDs and Video CDs use
tracks to divide the contents of a
disc. The DVD equivalent is called
a chapter. See also Chapter.
