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.

Condensation
Moisture may form on the pickup lens in the following
conditions:

Recommended Measures for
Optimum Picture Excellence
The unit 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 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.
Do not attempt to clean the pickup lens yourself.

Caution:
• 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 (supplied for
Middle East only).
• 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 programs.

Digital Connection to an MD to Record a CD
Some Audio CDs and VIDEO 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.
■ Digital Connection to Audio Equipment or MD Player without a Dolby Digital Decoder
• Audio CD or VIDEO CD
Play the disc as you normally would, with the audio mode set to “L+R” (see page 63). With a digital
connection, audio of a disc recorded with DTS sounds abnormal in this case.
• DVD
With a digital connection, audio cannot be produced from a DVD recorded with Dolby Digital (5.1 channel),
Dolby Surround (Pro Logic), DTS or MPEG Audio, so you should use an analogue connection to play such
discs. 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/
