Copyright
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.
U.S.Patent Nos. 4,631,603; 4,819,098; 4,907,093;
5,315,448; and 6,516,132
Non-use 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.
This product incorporates copyright protection technology that is protected by U.S. patents and other intellectual property rights. Use of this copyright protection
technology must be authorised by Macrovision, and is
intended for home and other limited viewing uses only
unless otherwise authorised by Macrovision. Reverse
engineering or disassembly is prohibited.
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.
• When attempting to record copy protected material on a
VCR or other recording device, the copy protection will
activate and the protected material will not be recorded
correctly. In addition, attempting to display copy protected
material on a monitor connected via a VCR, whether for
the purpose of viewing or not, will cause an inferior quality
picture to be displayed. This is not a fault of the equipment.
Please view copy protected material by connecting the
product directly to the monitor.
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. Contact your authorised 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.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Power Source
The player should be operated only from a 220-240 V, 50 Hz outlet. Please do not open the cover by yourself. There is
high voltage in the player, which will endanger your life. Please contact a local service agent for help and advice. Repairs
are to be carried out by a qualified technician only.
• The player is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if
the player itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the player for a long time, be sure to disconnect the player from the wall outlet.
Power Cord
Do not place the player, a piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord (mains lead), or pinch the cord. Handle the power
cord by the plug. Do not pull out the plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power cord when your hands are wet
as this could cause a short circuit or electric shock. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. The power
cord should be routed in such a way that it is not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord can cause fire or give
you an electrical shock. Check the power cord once in a while. When you find it damaged, ask your closest service agent
for help. When the AC power cord needs to be changed, it should be done at a qualified service shop only.
Choice of Location
• Please do not place the player in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust or mechanical shock or in a location
near heat sources.
• The player should be placed on a solid and safe base. Do not place the player on a soft surface such as a rug that might
block the ventilation holes on the bottom.
• Do not place the player in a room subject to high humidity, such as a kitchen, as condensation may cause malfunction
or damage the player.
• Heating or other thermal radiation under the player also may cause malfunction or damage the player.
• The hot air, which arises during the operation, should be ventilated with sufficient air circulation. Please do not put the
set into closed areas and do not cover it.
• Do not allow the player to come in contact with water or humidity. Do not use the player near a bath or swimming
pool.
• Take care to provide good air circulation. Place the player in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat build-up
in the player.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet, unplug the player and have it checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.

DEFINITION OF TERMS
Angle
Recorded onto some DVDs are scenes that 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, ANGLE can be used to view
the scene from different angles.
Chapter Number
These numbers are recorded on DVDs. 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.
DivX®
DivX® is a digital video compression format developed by DivX, Inc.
Dolby Digital
Many movie theatres are equipped with 5.1 channel surround systems. This same type of technology is available to you
in your home. To enjoy full 5.1 channel surround, the player must be connected to an external Dolby Digital decoder via
the digital outputs (either coaxial or optical).
DTS
This is a digital sound system developed by Digital Theater Systems for use in cinemas. This system uses 6 audio channels and provides accurate sound field positioning and realistic acoustics. (By connecting a DTS Digital Surround decoder,
you can also listen to DTS Digital Surround sound.)
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 video compression technology (MPEG II) and high-density recording technology, DVD enables
aesthetically 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. Since the thinner the disc, the
higher the density at which the information can be recorded, a DVD has a greater capacity than a single 1.2 mm thick
disc.
HDMI
The High-Definition Multi-media Interface (HDMI) is an industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface.
The HDMI provides an interface between any compatible digital audio/video sources, such as a set-top box, a DVD player,
and an AV receiver and a compatible digital audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV).
LPCM
LPCM stands for Linear Pulse Code Modulation and is digital audio.
MPEG
Short for Moving Picture Experts Group. This is an international standard for compression of moving images. On some
DVDs digital audio has been compressed and recorded in this format.
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 by looking at the menu shown on the TV.
Subtitles
These are printed lines appearing at the bottom of the screen, which translate or transcribe the dialogue. They are recorded on the DVDs.
Time Number
This indicates the playtime that has elapsed from the start of a disc or a title. It can be used to find a specific scene quickly.
(Not all discs permit the use of a time search feature. Availability is determined by the disc’s manufacturer.)
Title Number
These numbers are recorded on DVDs. 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 that are recorded on Audio CDs. They enable specific tracks to be located
quickly.
Video CD
This contains recordings of pictures and sound whose quality is on a par with that of video tape. The player also supports
Video CDs with playback control (Version 2.0).
