SETTING UP
Certain discs come preset with country codes and parental level settings that
are defined for particular countries. Discs equipped with the parental lock
function are rated according to their content. The rated content allowed by a
parental lock level and the way a DVD can be controlled may vary from disc to
disc. Some discs, for example, may let you edit out violent scenes and replace
them with scenes more suitable for viewing by children. You can also use the
parental lock to disable playback of the DVD entirely.

Precautions
Use & Care
• Avoid magnetic sources.
Using the Player near strong fluorescent lights, motors,
televisions, or other magnetic sources may adversely affect
recorded images.
• Remember to remove the disc, turn off the power when the
Player is not in use.
• Using the Player near a broadcasting station or other powerful transmission
source may cause buzzing or picture deterioration.
• Avoid shocks and dropping.
Do not drop or otherwise subject the Player to hard shocks or
strong vibrations.
• Avoid placing the Player in close proximity to lighting
equipment.
The heat from incandescent lights may deform the Player, or cause it
to malfunction.
• Always respect prohibitions or restrictions on the use of
electronic equipment on commercial flights or in other
sensitive areas.
• Be aware of the temperature and humidity.
You can use your Player at 0°C to 40°C and at 30% to 80%
relative humidity. Do not store the Player in an unventilated car in
the summer, in direct sunlight, or near strong heat sources; this
can result in severe damage to the unit’s casing and circuitry or
in burning yourself.
OTHER
INFORMATION
• Avoid situations where water, sand, dust or other foreign matter could get on
or inside the Player, and do not use or leave your Player in
areas with excessive smoke, steam or moisture.
Such environments can cause malfunctions or cause mildew to
form on the lenses. Be sure to keep the Player in a well-ventilated
location.
• When using your Player in a cold environment, the colour LCD
screen often appears less bright immediately after the power is turned on.
This is not a malfunction. To prevent the Player from becoming too cold, wrap it in
a thick cloth (a blanket, etc.).
• Never touch the pickup lens when installing or cleaning discs.
This will cause the Player to malfunction.
Downloaded From Disc-Player.com Sharp Manuals
References
• Do not leave the Player on your lap for a long time during use.
Heat generated by the Player can cause low-temperature burning of the skin over
time.
Moving and shipment
• Remove the disc before packing the Player for moving or shipment.
It is also a good idea to remove the disc and turn off power whenever you are not
using the Player.
Saving power
• Help save power by turning off the Player when you are not using it. If you do
not plan to use the Player for a long time (such as when leaving on a trip),
unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
Care of the LCD
• To clean off the screen, turn off power and wipe the display with a soft cloth.
About the LCD Panel
• The LCD panel is a product of the latest LCD manufacturing technology that provides
a pixel yield of 99.99%. This means that less than 0.01% of the total number of pixels
are defective (they do not turn on or always remain turned on).
• The fluorescent tube that provides backlighting of the screen requires periodic
replacement. As a general rule, the life of the fluorescent tube is about 10,000
hours of continuous use under normal temperatures. If the display appears dark, if
it flickers, or if it fails to light, contact your original retailer or your nearest Sharp
service centre for replacement.

Care
Cleaning and Maintenance
• Many plastic parts are used in the Player casing. Do not use thinners,
benzenes or other strong chemical cleaners. These may cause discolouration
and damage to the casing.
• Clean the casing with a soft, dry cloth. If the casing is particularly dirty, wipe
the casing with a tightly wrung cloth dampened with a diluted, neutral
detergent. Then wipe it again with a soft, dry cloth.
• Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe finger marks and other soiling off the LCD screen.
Battery Pack (Optional Accessory)
Danger!
OTHER
INFORMATION
Be sure to observe the following precautions whenever handling the battery pack. Failure
to do so can result in battery pack leakage, overheating, smoke emission, fire, or rupture.
1. Never try to take the battery pack apart or modify it in any way. Never apply solder
directly to battery pack terminals.
2. When the battery pack is removed from the unit, do not allow its terminals to contact
each other through needles, necklaces, or other metal objects.
3. Never leave the battery pack in direct sunlight, on the dashboard of a vehicle, or in
any other area where it is exposed to high temperature (greater than 60°C).
4. Never place the battery pack into water, salt water or fire, and do not expose it to heat.
5. Use only the specified AC adapter to charge the battery pack.
6. This battery pack is designed to power specific portable Players only. Never use it
with any other device.
Downloaded From Disc-Player.com Sharp Manuals
References
Warning!
1. Never drop the battery pack or otherwise subject it to strong impact.
2. Use and store the battery pack in areas that is out of the reach of small children.
3. Never place the battery pack inside a microwave oven or a washing machine.
4. Fluid from inside the battery pack getting into the eyes can cause loss of eyesight.
Wash out the eyes thoroughly with plain water and then contact a doctor
immediately. Battery pack fluid on clothing or skin can cause skin irritation. Wash off
fluid immediately with plain water.
Caution!
1. Charge the battery pack in an area where the temperature is within the range of
10°C to 30°C. Charging outside this temperature range creates the danger of battery
pack leakage, overheating, smoke emission, fire, or rupture.
2. When not in use, remove the battery pack and store it in a cool place.
3. Avoid prolonged contact with the AC adapter or battery pack while charging.
Prolonged contact while charging creates the danger of low-temperature burns.
4. Keep the battery pack out of areas subject to large amounts of oil smoke, steam,
moisture, dust, etc.
• Never leave the battery pack in food preparation areas, near heaters, or in any
other location where it can be exposed to oil smoke or steam. Doing so creates the
danger of fire and electric shock.
• Do not use or store the battery pack where it is exposed to direct sunlight, sources
of heat, or any other location subject to high temperatures. Doing so creates the
danger of battery pack leakage, overheating, smoke emission, fire, or rupture.
Battery Pack Charging Precautions
• Charge the battery pack in an area where the temperature is in the range of
10°C to 30°C.
Low temperature can inhibit charging and cause deterioration of the battery
pack. The battery pack also cannot charge fully under high temperatures.
• Charging of a battery pack may become disabled (and the Indicator lamp may
fail to light orange) whenever heat from the Player caused the internal
temperature of an installed battery pack to rise above certain level. When this
happens, remove the battery pack from the Player. Charging will start
automatically when battery pack internal temperature drops to a safe level.
• Before storing a battery pack, first fully discharge it by using it to power Player
operation. Store the battery pack in a cool place.
Storing a battery while it is charged or in a hot location promotes deterioration.
