If it becomes necessary to transport or ship this unit in the
future, be sure to first remove the disc (if loaded), and retract the disc table to its closed position. Then turn the
power off, and, after the “OFF” display goes out on the
display, disconnect the power cord.
INSTALLING THE PLAYER
÷
Place the player on a stable platform next to the television
and stereo system to be used with the player.
÷
Do not place heavy objects such as a television or TV
monitor on top of the player.
÷
Do not place the player on top of your TV set or TV monitor. Also, keep the player away from devices such as cassette
decks which are sensitive to magnetic fields.
DO NOT INSTALL THE PLAYER IN THE FOLLOWING LOCATIONS
÷
÷
÷
÷
÷
÷
In a place subject to direct sunlight.
In humid or poorly ventilated places.
In extremely hot or cold places.
In a place subject to vibrations.
In a dusty place.
In a place subject to soot, steam or heat (in a kitchen, etc.)
AVOID SOURCES OF HEAT
Do not put the player on sources of heat, such as an amplifier.
When installing with audio components on a rack, avoid components that generate heat, by placing the player below such components where there is adequate ventilation and not much dust.
Avoid placing the player on surfaces such as shaggy carpets, beds,
and sofas which may block ventilation under the player and cause
damage.
CAUTION
Even when the player is in the pause mode, the disc-drive motor is
still revolving. Since leaving the player in this condition can shorten
the lifetime of the motor, do not leave the player in the pause
mode for long periods of time. Also, to prevent the damage to the
screen, do not use the unit for long periods of time under conditions in which the screen display (monitor) continuously displays
characters (for example, power-ON mode, CD PLAY, PAUSE or
DEMO mode).
With LD discs, if playback is paused for about 20 minutes, the
player will automatically enter stop mode.
STRIPE PATTERNS APPEARING ON A TV PROGRAM
Stripe patterns may appear during a TV program if the player unit is
turned on, depending on the quality of reception of the TV station. This is neither a malfunction of the television nor the player. If
stripes appear while watching the TV, or when watching the TV for
long periods of time, turn the player off.
When FM or AM stations are being received, signal noise may be
generated if the player is turned on. Turn off the player when not
in use. Also, if there is signal noise when receiving radio stations
with an indoor antenna, adjust the position or direction of the
antenna.
CONDENSATION
Moisture will form in the operating section of the player if the player is brought from cool surroundings into
a warm room or if the temperature of the room rises
suddenly. When this happens, the player’s performance
will be impaired.
To prevent this, let the player stand in its new surroundings for about an hour before switching it on, or
make sure that the room temperature rises gradually.
Condensation may also form during the summer if the player is
exposed to the breeze from an air conditioner. In such cases,
change the location of the player.
POWER-CORD CAUTION
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. Do not
place the unit, a piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or
pinch the cord. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other
cords. The power cords should be routed such a way that they are
not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord can cause fire
or give you an electrical shock. Check the power cord regularly.
When you find it damaged, ask your nearest authorized YAMAHA
service center or your dealer for a replacement.
CLEANING CARE
Use a soft, dry cloth for cleaning. For stubborn dirt, soak the cloth
in a weak detergent solution; wring well first and wipe. Use a dry
cloth to wipe it dry. Do not use any volatile agents such as
benzine or paint thinner, as they may damage the surface of the
player.
LD/CD lens cleaner
The player's pickup lens should not become dirty in normal use,
but if for some reason it should malfunction due to soiling, ask
your nearest authorized YAMAHA service center. Lens cleaners
for LD/CD players are commercially available, but special care should
be exercised in their use since some may cause damage to the
lens.
Abnormal functioning of this unit may be caused
by lightning, static electricity, or other external inter-ference. To restore normal operation, unplug
the AC power cord and then plug it in again.
Only one disc can be loaded at any one time. Loading
LaserDisc, Compact Disc, 8 cm Compact Disc or Compact Disc with Video on top of one another may result
in a breakdown, or in scratching of the discs. Please
only load one disc at a time.
This player is to be used exclusively with the NTSC color system. Please use NTSC LaserDiscs only. PAL and
SECAM system discs cannot be used with this player.

videodisc).
LaserDisc players and discs which bear this symbol and use the
same television system, are mutually compatible.
Storage
** A Digital Audio with Multi Audio Disc (CD VIDEO LD) and a CDV
(CD Video CDV) are referred to as CD Video discs. CD Videodiscs are recorded with subcodes, which are the non-audio recordings of TOC (Table of Contents) data such as track numbers, index numbers, etc. However, there are some discs without these marks.
After playback, be sure to take out the disc from the player, put
the disc in the jacket or case and store it vertically. To prevent the
discs from warping, do not store jackets or cases at an angle or
stack them horizontally. Also do not store them in a place subject
to direct sunlight or under high temperature and humidity.
÷ If a LaserDisc is deformed, place it in the inner bag, put the bag
between two flat boards, place a weight of 4 to 5 kg (10 lbs) on
the boards and leave them for about a day. This may sometimes reduce the warp or other deformation.
Heavy books (4 to 5 kg (10 lbs))
Caution

LD terms
LD (LaserDisc)
Chapter number
Just like the numbers assigned to chapters of a book, the
LD disc is divided into several chapters and each of them is
assigned a chapter number. If the chapter numbers are
recorded on the disc, it is possible to perform operations
such as the chapter search which quickly searches the desired chapter.
÷ Some LD discs do not contain recorded chapter numbers.
LaserDiscs include a standard play disc (CAV) and an extended play disc (CLV) depending on the signal recording
formats.
Frame number
A frame number is assigned to every frame on a CAV disc.
This makes possible operations such as the frame search
which searches desired images based on their frame numbers.
Time number
This refers to the elapsed playing time from the beginning
of the disc that is recorded on CLV discs as well as on CAV
discs with a TOC*1. This allows operations such as the
time number search which searches desired images based
on their time numbers.
CDV/CD terms
Track number
The CDV or CD disc is divided into several tracks and each
of them is assigned a track number. With the CDV disc, the
track numbers are recorded across the audio and video
parts. This allows operations such as the track search which
quickly searches the desired track.
TOC (*1)
CD and CDV discs contain non-audio information called TOC
the (Table Of Contents) at the beginning of the disc. As this
name implies, the TOC contains information on the number
of tracks and their playing time just like the table of contents of a book.
÷ Some LD discs are not provided with a TOC section.
÷ The LD with TOC and the CDV belong to the same
category of "optical video disc systems with digital audio".
CAV
[Standard Play/CAV] or simply [Standard Play] is indicated
on the jacket or label of the disc.
CLV
[Extended Play/CLV] or simply [Extended Play] is indicated
on the jacket or label of the disc.
LaserDisc with digital audio
This type of disc contains the recording of a digital audio
signal in addition to an analog audio signal. It allows you to
enjoy the high-quality video of an LD and digital sound at
the same time.
¬
or
:
Multi-audio disc with digital audio
This type of disc contains different audio information in
digital audio and analog audio.
¬
and MULTI AUDIO or
:K
The digital and analog audio can be switched over to enjoy
different audio information.
CDV (Compact Disc with Video)
÷ This CD contains the video part. Among the 25-minute
playing time of the CDV, 20 minutes contain a similar
digital audio to an ordinary CD (audio part) and the remaining 5 minutes contain a video plus digital audio (video part).
CD video system
The CD video system is the unified name given to "optical
video disc systems with digital audio".
The systems belonging to this category include;
÷ CDV disc (CD VIDEO, CDV)
÷ LD with subcode and digital audio
÷ CD/CDV compatible player
÷ CD/CDV/LD compatible player
