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.

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS AND PRECAUTIONS
Power Cord Protection
To avoid any malfunctions of the unit, and to protect
against electric shock, fire or personal injury, please
observe the following.
• Hold the plug firmly when connecting or disconnecting the AC power cord.
• Keep the AC power cord away from heating
appliances.
• Never put any heavy object on the AC power cord.
• Do not attempt to repair or reconstruct the AC
power cord in any way.
Location and Handling
• Air vents are provided in the DVD player cabinet to
prevent excessive temperatures inside the unit. Do
not place your DVD player in closed spaces, cover
it, or otherwise block the vents.
• Do not place the DVD player in direct sunlight, or
near heat sources.
• Keep the DVD player away from strong magnetic
objects.
• Do not insert or drop anything into the DVD player
through the air vents as this could cause serious
damage, possibly resulting in fire.
• Do not place any object containing water or other
liquids on the DVD player. In the event that liquid
should enter the cabinet, unplug the DVD player
immediately and contact the retailer or service
centre approved by Sharp immediately.
• Do not remove the DVD player cabinet. Touching
parts inside the cabinet could result in electric
shock and/or damage to the DVD player. For
service and adjustment inside the cabinet, call a
qualified dealer or service centre approved by
Sharp.
Nonuse Periods
When the unit is not being used, turn the unit off.
When left unused for a long period of time, the unit
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 unit 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 unit is suddenly moved from a cold
environment to a warm one.
If moisture forms inside this unit, it may not operate
properly.

hour for the moisture to evaporate.
If There is Noise Interference on the
TV While a Broadcast is being
Received
Depending on the reception condition of the TV,
interference may appear on the TV monitor while you
watch a TV broadcast and the unit is left on. This is
not a malfunction of the unit or the TV. To watch a TV
broadcast, turn off the unit.
Service
Do not attempt to service this DVD player yourself.
Please refer any service to the nearest service centre
approved by Sharp.

the contents of the DVD disc are copied using a VCR,
the copy protection code prevents the videotape
copy from playing normally.

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 obtain
optimum picture quality, the player should be
checked (cleaning 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.

Discs that Cannot be Played
1. You cannot play illegally produced discs.
2. You cannot play scratched discs.
3. You cannot play discs that are dusty, soiled or marked with fingerprints.
• If the playing surface of a disc is soiled or scratched, the player may decide that the disc is incompatible

Definition of Terms
Angle
Recorded onto some DVD discs are scenes which have been simultaneously shot from a number
of different angles (the same scene is shot from the front, from the left side, from the right side,
etc,). With such discs, the ANGLE button can be used to view the scene from different angles.
Chapter Number
These numbers are recorded on DVD discs. A title is subdivided into many sections, each of
which is numbered, and specific parts of video presentations can be searched quickly using
these numbers.
DVD
This refers to a high-density optical disc on which high-quality pictures and sound have been
recorded by means of digital signals. Incorporating a new video compression technology (MPEG
II) and high-density recording technology, DVD enables esthetically pleasing full-motion video to
be recorded over long periods of time (for instance, a whole movie can be recorded).
DVD has a structure consisting of two 0.6 mm thin discs which are adhered to each other. Due to
higher data density dual layer and possibility of double sided operation, the DVD disc has a
much greater capacity than the single sided 1.2 mm thick disc (CD). Since the two thin discs are
adhered to each other, there is the potential to achieve double-sided play sometime in the future
for even longer duration play.
Linear PCM Sound
Linear PCM is a signal recording format used for audio CDs.
The sound on audio CDs is recorded at 44.1kHz with 16 bits. (On DVD discs, sound is recorded
at between 48kHz with 16 bits and 96kHz with 24 bits.)
Playback Control (PBC)
This is recorded on a video CD (version 2.0). The scenes or information to be viewed (or listened
to) can be selected interactively with the TV monitor by looking at the menu shown on the TV
monitor.
Subtitles
These are the printed lines appearing at the bottom of the screen which translate or transcribe
the dialogue. They are recorded on DVD discs.
Time Number
This indicates the play time which has elapsed from the start of a disc or a title. It can be used to
find a specific scene quickly. (It may not work with some discs.)
Title Number
These numbers are recorded on DVD discs. When a disc contains two or more movies, these
movies are numbered as title 1, title 2, etc.
Track Number
These numbers are assigned to the tracks which are recorded on video CDs and audio CDs.
They enable specific tracks to be located quickly.
Video CD (VCD)
This contains recordings of pictures and sound whose quality is on a par with that of videotape.
This player also supports video CDs with playback control (version 2.0).
