SAFETY INFORMATION
Location and Handling
Service
•
Do not attempt to service this Player yourself. Please refer
any service to the nearest service centre approved by
SHARP.
•
•
•
•
Do not cover or place the Player in enclosed spaces to
prevent excessive temperature build up.
Do not place the Player in direct sunlight, or near heat
sources.
Keep the Player away from strong magnetic objects.
Do not place any object containing water or other liquids
on the Player. In the event that liquid should enter the
cabinet, unplug the Player immediately and contact the
retailer or service centre approved by SHARP immediately.
Do not remove the Player cabinet. Touching parts inside
the cabinet could result in electric shock and/ or damage
to the Player. For service and adjustment inside the cabinet, call a qualified dealer or service centre approved by
SHARP.
Nonuse Periods
When the Player is not being used, switch the Player to the
Standby mode.
When left unused for a long period of time, the Player should
be unplugged from the household AC outlet.
No Fingers or Other Objects Inside
Do not put any foreign object on the disc tray.
Stacking
Place the Player in a horizontal position, and do not place
anything heavy on it.
Condensation
Moisture may form on the pickup lens in the following conditions:
• immediately after a heater has been turned on.
• in a steamy or very humid room.
• when the Player is suddenly moved from a cold environment to a warm one.
If moisture forms inside this Player, it may not operate properly.
In this case, turn on the power and wait about one hour for
the moisture to evaporate.
Cleaning
Unplug your Player before cleaning. Use a damp cloth for
cleaning. Do not use cleaning fluids or aerosols which could
enter the Player and cause damage, fire, or electrical shock.
These substances may also deteriorate the finish of your
Player.
If there is Noise Interference on the TV While a
Broadcast is being Received
Recording and playback of any material may require consent. Please refer particularly to the provisions of the copyright Act 1956, the Dramatic and Musical Performers
Protection Act 1958, the Performers Protection Acts 1963
and 1972 and to any subsequent statutory enactments and
orders.
Copy Protection
This Player supports Macrovision copy protection. On DVDs
that include a copy protection code, if the contents of the
DVD are copied using a VCR, the copy protection code prevents the videotape copy from playing normally.
Apparatus Claims of U.S.Patent Nos. 4,631,603,
4,577,216, 4,819,098 and 4,907,093 licensed for limited
viewing uses only.
This product incorporates copyright protection technology
that is protected by method claims of certain U.S. patents
and other intellectual property rights owned by Macrovision
Corporation and other rights owners. Use of this copyright
protection technology must be authorized by Macrovision
Corporation, and is intended for home and other limited
viewing uses only unless otherwise authorized by
Macrovision Corporation. Reverse engineering or disassembly is prohibited.
Recommended Measures for Optimum Picture
Excellence
The Player is a precision device that is constructed using
extremely accurate technology.
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 Player is used. Contact your authorized
Sharp supplier for details.
Do not attempt to clean the pickup lens yourself.
Screen Burn
Depending on the reception condition of the TV, interference
may appear on the TV monitor while you watch a TV broadcast and the Player is left on. This is not a malfunction of the
Player or the TV. To watch a TV broadcast, turn off the
Player.
Downloaded From Disc-Player.com Sharp Manuals
Copyright
The screen saver programme will not start in pause mode or
when playing Audio or MP3 discs. This may cause screen
burn due to long-term static display.

PRECAUTIONS
Connection to power
SPECIAL NOTE FOR USERS IN THE U.K.
The mains lead of this product is fitted with a non-rewireable (moulded) plug incorporating a 3A fuse. Should the fuse need
to be replaced, a BSI or ASTA approved BS 1362 fuse marked or and of the same rating as above, which is also indicated on
the pin face of the plug, must be used. Always refit the fuse cover after replacing the fuse. Never use the plug without the fuse
cover fitted. In the unlikely event of the socket outlet in your home not being compatible with the plug supplied,
cut-off the mains plug and fit an appropriate type.
DANGER: The fuse from the cut-off plug should be removed and the cut-off plug destroyed immediately and disposed of in
a safe manner.
Under no circumstances should the cut-off plug be inserted elsewhere into a 13A socket outlet, as a serious
electric shock may occur.
To fit an appropriate plug to the mains lead, follow the instructions below:
IMPORTANT: The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Blue: Neutral
Brown: Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this product may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the
terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
- The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked N or coloured black.
- The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked L or coloured red.
Ensure that neither the brown nor the blue wire is connected to the earth terminal in your three-pin plug.
Before replacing the plug cover make sure that:
- If the new fitted plug contains a fuse, its value is the same as that removed from the cut-off plug.
- The cord grip is clamped over the sheath of the mains lead and not simply over the lead wires.
IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT, CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.
Note: A 5A fuse is also acceptable for a non-rewireable (moulded) plug which is used for this product.

Digital Connection to an MD to Record a CD
Some Audio CDs have a short silent section between musical tracks. When sound from discs such as these is digitally
recorded by connecting the Player directly to a digital recorder (such as an MD player), the music may be recorded
continuously and track numbers may be lost.
C Digital Connection to Audio Equipment or MD Player without a Dolby Digital Decoder
•
•
Audio CD
Audio CD discs can be transferred digitally to other equipment such as an MD recorder, play the disc as you would
normally with the audio mode set to “L+R” and use the connection shown above. Audio CD’s recorded in the DTS format
cannot be transferred digitally or via analogue.
DVD
DVD’s recorded in Dolby Digital (5.1 channel), Dolby surround (Pro Logic), DTS or MPEG Audio cannot be connected
digitally to external recording equipment such as an MD recorder.
It may be possible to record Dolby Digital or MPEG Audio via a digital connection if the DVD player output is set to PCM
and down mix is set to ON (see page 19 “Audio Settings”). Analgue recording is possible but not for DTS recorded audio.
DVD discs with linear PCM audio should play normally.
Playing Dolby Digital (5.1 channel), DTS or MPEG audio
Connecting an amplifier with a Dolby Digital/DTS/MPEG Audio digital surround processor or a Dolby Digital/DTS/ MPEG
Audio surround processor to your Player’s coaxial digital jack provides richer and more powerful audio play.
