Audio-visual material may consist of copyrighted works which
must not be recorded without the authority of the owner of
the copyright. Please refer to relevant laws in your country.
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.
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

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.

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.

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

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.
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 Player is left on. This is not a malfunction of the
Player or the TV. To watch a TV broadcast, turn off the
Player.

When the Player is connected to a TV using both a VIDEO cable and an S-VIDEO cable, only the S-VIDEO connection is
enabled (the VIDEO connection is disabled).
You will not be able to hear all of the sound being output by the Player if you use the VIDEO/AUDIO cable (supplied) to a
monaural TV that has only one AUDIO input jack.
NOTE:

•
Be sure that the colours of the jacks and plugs match up when connecting the cable.
Connect the Player directly to the TV. If you attempt to view video on a TV connected via a VCR, the copy protection function will scramble the picture.
If you want to listen to the audio through audio equipment, connect only the S-VIDEO or VIDEO cable to the TV.

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.

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 DVD discs will not be as good if the DVD player is connected to the TV’s antenna terminal
through an RF Modulator.
