Precautions
Note to CATV system installer :
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system
installer’s attention to Section 820~40 of the NEC
which provides guidelines for proper grounding and,
in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be
connected to the grounding system of the building,
as close to the point of cable entry as practical
CLASS 1 LASER PRODUCT
This Compact Disc player is classified as a CLASS 1
LASER product.
Ensure that the AC power supply in your house complies with the identification sticker located on the back of your player. Install your
player horizontally, on a suitable base (furniture), with enough space around it for ventilation (3~4inches). Make sure the ventilation slots
are not covered. Do not stack anything on top of the player. Do not place the player on amplifiers or other equipment which may become
hot. Before moving the player, ensure the disc tray is empty. This player is designed for continuous use. Switching off the DVD player to
the stand-by mode does not disconnect the electrical supply. In order to disconnect the player completely from the power supply,
remove the main plug from the wall outlet, especially when left unused for a long period of time.
Use of controls, adjustments or performance of
procedures other than those specified herein may result
in hazardous radiation exposure.
CAUTION-INVISIBLE LASER RADIATION WHEN OPEN
AND INTERLOCKS DEFEATED, AVOID
EXPOSURE TO BEAM.
This symbol indicates that dangerous voltage which can cause electric shock is present inside
this unit.
During thunderstorms, disconnect AC main plug from the
wall outlet.
Voltage peaks due to lightning could damage the unit.
Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight or other heat
sources.
This could lead to overheating and malfunction of the unit.
This symbol alerts you to important operating and maintenance instructions accompanying
the unit.
Phones
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this appliance to rain or moisture.
CAUTION: TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK, MATCH WIDE BLADE OF PLUG TO WIDE SLOT, FULLY
INSERT.

before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners
or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
LIGHTNING
For added protection of this video product
receiver during a lightning storm, or when
it is left unattended and unused for long
periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet
and disconnect the antenna or cable system.
This will prevent damage to the video product
due to lightning and power-line surges.
OBJECT AND LIQUID ENTRY
Never push objects of any kind into this
product through openings as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short-out parts
that could result in a fire or electric shock.
Never spill liquid of any kind on the video
product.
ACCESSORIES
Do not place this video product on an unstable cart,
stand, tripod, bracket, or table.
The video product may fall, causing serious injury to
a child or adult, and serious damage
to the appliance.
Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket,
or table recommended by the manufacturer,
or sold with the video product. Any mounting
of the appliance should follow the manufacturer's
instructions and should use a mounting accessory
recommended by the manufacturer.
CART
An appliance and cart combination should be moved
with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven
surfaces may cause the appliance and cart
combination to overturn.
POWER SOURCES
This video product should be operated only from the
type of power source indicated
on the marking label. If you are not sure
of the type of supply to your home, consult your
appliance dealer or local power company.
For video products intended to be operated from
battery power, or other sources, refer
to the operating instructions.
POWER LINES
An outside antenna system should not be located in
the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric
light or power circuits,
or where it can fall into such power lines
or circuits. When installing an outside antenna
system, extreme care should be taken to keep from
touching such power lines or circuits as contact with
them might be fatal.
POLARIZATION
This video product is equipped with a polarized
alternating current line plug (a plug having one blade
wider than the other.) This plug will fit into the power
outlet only one way.
This is a safety feature. If you are unable
to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the
plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your
electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not
defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING
•If an outside antenna is connected to the
antenna terminal, be sure the antenna system
is grounded so as to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built-up static
charges.
•In the U.S.A section 810 of the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984,
provides information with respect to proper
grounding of the mast and supporting
structure, grounding of the lead-in wire
to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
conductors location of antenna discharge unit,
connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode.
See the figure below.
ATTACHMENTS
Do not use attachments not recommended
by the video product manufacturer as they may
cause hazards.
SERVICING

• Only a consecutively written Multi session disc can be played. If there is a blank segment in the Multi session disc,
the disc can be played only up to the blank segment.
• If the disc is not closed, it will take longer to begin playback and not all of the recorded files may be played.
• For files encoded in Variable Bit Rate (VBR) format, i.e. files encoded in both low bit rate and high bit rate (e.g.,

• LD, CD-G, CD-I, CD-ROM and DVD-ROM cannot be played on this player.
If such discs are played, a "WRONG DISC FORMAT" message appears on the TV screen.
What is MP3?
MP3 is short for MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 and MPEG is an acronym for Moving Pictures Experts
Group. MP3 is a file format with compression ratio of 1:12 (128 Kbps*) That is, you can use MP3
format to record about 12 times the usual amount of data on a regular CD.
• DVD discs purchased abroad may not play on this player.
If such discs are played, a "WRONG REGION CODE" message appears on the TV screen.
Copy Protection
• Many DVD discs are encoded with copy protection. Because of this, you should only connect your

P.SCAN(Progressive Scan) Function
Unlike a regular Interlace Scan in which two fields of picture information are alternated to
create the entire picture (odd scan lines, then even scan lines), Progressive Scan uses one
field of information (all lines displayed in one pass) to create a clear and detailed picture
without visible scan lines.

Component
Video
Interlaced Scan (1 FRAME = 2 FIELDS)
Progressive Scan (FULL FRAME)
Depending on your TV, Component Video input connectors may be marked as DVD Video input connectors.
Composite Video (Good Quality)
Connect the supplied video cable from the VIDEO OUT jack on the back panel of the system
to the VIDEO IN jack on your television.
S-Video (Better Quality)
If you television is equipped with an S-Video input, connect an S-Video cable (not supplied)
from the S-VIDEO OUT jack on the back panel of the system to the S-VIDEO IN jack on
your television.
In interlaced-scan video, a frame consists of two
interlaced fields (odd and even), where each field
contains every other horizontal line in the frame.
The odd field of alternating lines is displayed first, and
then the even field is displayed to fill in the alternating
gaps left by the odd field to form a single frame.
One frame, displayed every 1/30th of a second, contains
two interfaced fields, thus a total of 60 fields are
displayed every 1/60th of a second each.
The interlaced scanning method is intended for capturing
a still object.
The progressive scanning method scans one full frame of
video consecutively down the screen, line by line.
As opposed to the interlaced scanning process by which a
video image is drawn in a series of passes, you get an
entire image drawn at one time.
The progressive scanning method is desirable for dealing
with moving objects. A camera that has the ability to
capture moving objects is called a "full frame shutter
camera".
Component Video (Best Quality)
If your television is equipped with Component Video inputs, connect a component video
cable (not supplied) from the Pr, Pb and Y jacks on the back panel of the system to the
corresponding jacks on your television.
Note
• This function works only on TVs equipped with component video inputs (Pr, Pb, Y,) that support Progressive
Video. (It does not work on TVs with conventional component inputs, i.e., non-progressive scan TVs.)
• Depending on the brand and model of your TV, this function may not work.
Note
• When the Progressive scan mode is selected, the VIDEO and S-VIDEO outputs do not feed
any signals. See page 16 to select Progressive Scan.
