Service
• 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.
Do not attempt to service this Player yourself. Please refer
any service to the nearest 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
Copyright
Copyright may exist in material you with to record.
Copying such material without permission of the relevant
licence(s) or owner(s) of the copy right is prohibited by law.
SHARP is not in a position to authorize the recording of
copyright works and nothing in this manual should be read or
implied as giving that authority.
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.
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.

Be sure to turn off the Player and equipment to be connected before connecting.
Read through the operation manual for the equipment to be connected.
Be sure that the colours of the jacks and plugs match up when using a VIDEO/AUDIO cable.
Be sure to keep the Player connection cables separate from the TV antenna cable when you install the Player, because
it may cause electrical interference when you are watching television programmes.

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 recorder), the music may be recorded continuously and track numbers may be lost.
C Digital Connection to Audio Equipment or MD Recorder without a Dolby Digital Decoder
• Audio CD
Audio CDs 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 CDs recorded in the DTS format cannot be transferred digitally or via analogue.
• DVD
DVDs recorded in Dolby Digital 5.1 channel surround sound, DTS or MPEG Audio cannot be connected digitally to external
recording equipment such as an MD recorder.
The audio source on a disc in a Dolby Digital 5.1 channel surround format cannot be recorded as digital sound by 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
“DPCM” (see page 19 “Audio Settings”). Analogue recording is possible but not for DTS recorded audio.
Playing Dolby Digital (5.1 channel), DTS or MPEG audio
Connecting an amplifier with a Dolby Digital/ DTS/ MPEG Audio digital surround processor to your player’s coaxial digital jack
provides richer and more powerful audio play.
C Digital connection to a processor or amplifier with an optical/ coaxial digital input jack

• ANALOG AUDIO OUT and AV (TV) of the DVD player are not available on the DTS audio.
HOW TO CONNECT TO A TV WITHOUT AUDIO/VIDEO INPUT JACKS
If your TV does not have RCA type audio and video input jacks it is still possible to connect this DVD player to your TV’s 75ohm coaxial antenna terminal using a commercially available Stereo Audio/Video RF Modulator. Connect the audio and
video outputs of the DVD player to the audio and video inputs on the RF Modulator, and then connect the coaxial output of
the RF Modulator (usually marked “TO TV”) to the 75 ohm coaxial antenna terminal on your TV. Follow the instruction supplied with the RF Modulator for more details.
If your TV’s 75 ohm coaxial antenna terminal is already occupied by an antenna or cable box connection, remove that cable
from your TV’s antenna terminal and reconnect it to the coaxial antenna input terminal of the RF Modulator (usually marked
“ANT IN”), then connect the RF modulator to your TV’s antenna terminal as described above.
NOTE:
• The picture quality from DVDs will not be as good if the DVD player is connected to the TV’s antenna terminal through
an RF Modulator.
