Important Information
Disc Precautions
Be Careful of Scratches and Dust
• BD, DVD and CD discs are sensitive to dust, fingerprints and
especially scratches. A scratched disc may not be able to be
played back. Handle discs with care and store them in a safe
place.
Proper Disc Storage
Place the disc in the centre of the
disc case and store the case and
disc upright.
Avoid storing discs in locations
subject to direct sunlight, close to
heating appliances or in locations
of high humidity.
Do not drop discs or subject
them to strong vibrations or
impacts.
Avoid storing discs in locations
where there are large amounts of
dust or moisture.
Handling Precautions
• If the surface is soiled, wipe gently with a soft, damp (water only)
cloth. When wiping discs, always move the cloth from the centre
hole toward the outer edge.
• Do not use record cleaning sprays, benzene, thinner, static
electricity prevention liquids or any other solvent.
• Do not touch the surface.
• Do not stick paper or adhesive labels to the disc.
• If the playing surface of a disc is soiled or scratched, the Player
may decide that the disc is incompatible and eject the disc tray,
or it may fail to play the disc correctly. Wipe any dirt off the playing
surface with a soft cloth.
Cleaning the Pick Up Lens
• Never use commercially available cleaning discs. The use of these
discs can damage the lens.
• Request the nearest service centre approved by SHARP to clean
the lens.
Warnings about dew formation
• Condensation may form on pick up lens or disc 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.
When condensation forms:
It becomes difficult for the Player to read the signals on the disc
and prevents the Player from operating properly.
To remove condensation:
Take out the disc and leave the Player with the power off until
the condensation disappears. Using the Player when there is
condensation may cause malfunction.

mode indicators on the front panel display of the Player will blink.
Once the system processing has finished, the indicators will finish
blinking and then light up normally. You can operate the Player
when the BD and DVD/CD mode indicators are lit.
• Since all settings including the language setting stored in memory

such as interactive content, menu operations using popup menus, selection of subtitle display, and slide shows.
Although a BD-ROM may contain any form of data, most
BD-ROM discs will contain movies in High Definition format
for playback on Blu-ray Disc players.
Blu-ray Disc (BD) (page 7)
A disc format developed for recording/playing high-definition

Glossary
Linear PCM Sound
Resume playback (page 25)
Linear PCM is a signal recording format used for Audio CDs
and on some DVD and Blu-ray discs. The sound on Audio
CDs is recorded at 44.1 kHz with 16 bits. (Sound is recorded
between 48 kHz with 16 bits and 96 kHz with 24 bits on DVD
video discs and between 48 kHz with 16 bits and 192 kHz
with 24 bits on BD video discs.)
If you stop playback while it is in progress, the Player stores

MPEG-2
Skip (page 29)
This returns to the start of the chapter (or track) being played,
or skips to the next chapter (or track).
MPEG-2 (Moving Picture Experts Group phase 2) is one of
the video data compression schemes, which is adopted for
DVD videos and digital broadcasts worldwide. Some Blu-ray
Discs also use high bitrate MPEG-2.
Subtitles (pages 30, 32, 33)
Multi Angle (pages 31, 32)
Time number
This is a feature of DVD and BD video discs. In some discs,
the same scene is shot from different angles, and these are
stored in a single disc so you can enjoy playback from each
angle. (This function can be enjoyed if the disc is recorded
with multiple angles.)
Multi Audio
This is a feature of DVD and BD video discs. This function
makes it possible to record different audio tracks for the
same video, so you can enhance your enjoyment by
switching the audio. (You can enjoy this function with discs

Pan Scan (PS 4:3) (page 34)
A screen size that cuts off the sides of the image to allow
viewing of wide-screen (16:9) material on a connected 4:3 TV.
Parental control (page 43)
In some digital broadcasts and BD/DVD video discs, a
control level for disc viewing is set depending on the age of
the viewer. With this Player, you can set the control level for
viewing such broadcasts and discs.
These are the lines of text appearing at the bottom of the
screen which translate or transcribe the dialogue. They are
recorded on many DVD and BD video discs.
This indicates the play time which has elapsed from the start
of a disc or a title. It can be used to find a specific scene
quickly. (It may not work with some discs.)
Title number (pages 32, 33)
These numbers are recorded on DVD and Blu-ray discs.
When a disc contains two or more movies, these movies are
numbered as title 1, title 2, etc.
Top menu (page 26)

the chapter to be played back and the subtitle language. In
some DVD videos, the top menu may be called the “Title
Menu”.
Track number
These numbers are assigned to the tracks which are
recorded on audio CDs. They enable specific tracks to be
located quickly.
Pop-up menu (page 26)
An enhanced menu operation available on BD video discs.
The pop-up menu appears when POP-UP MENU is pressed
during playback, and can be operated while playback is in
progress.
Progressive format
Code identifying a geographic region of compatibility for a
BD/DVD.
Appendix
Region code (page 7)
r
Compared to the Interlace format that alternately shows
every other line of an image (field) to create one frame, the
Progressive format shows the entire image at once as a
single frame. This means that while the Interlace format can
show 30 frames/60 fields in one second, the Progressive
format can show 60 frames in one second. The overall
picture quality increases and still images, text, and horizontal
lines appear sharper.
Remote control code (page 22)
This is the type of the remote control signal for operating
the Player. There are three types of remote control signals:
“Remote Control No. 1” (RC-1), “Remote Control No. 2” (RC2) and “Remote Control No. 3” (RC-3).
