includes interactive and secondary audio.)
*2 This player automatically selects the HDMI audio
according to the decoding capability of the
connected HDMI device even though [HDMI]
option is set to [Primary Pass-Thru].
*3 The [PCM Multi-CH]/[Primary Pass-Thru] setting
of the [HDMI] option and [DTS re-encode]
setting of the [Digital Output] option cannot

About the internal
hard disk drive
The internal hard disk drive (HDD) is a fragile piece
of equipment. Please use the player following the
guidelines below to protect against possible HDD
failure.
yy Do not move the player while it is on.
yy Install and use a player on a stable, levelled
surface.
yy Do not use the player in excessively hot or
humid places, or in places that may be subject
to sudden changes in temperature. Sudden
changes in temperature can cause condensation
to form inside the player. This can be a cause of
HDD failure.
yy While the player is powered on, do not unplug
from the wall socket or switch the electricity off
from the breaker switch.
yy Do not move the player immediately after
switching it off. If you need to move the player,
please follow the steps below:
1. After the message “OFF” is shown in the
display, wait at least two minutes.
2. Unplug from the wall socket.
3. Move the player.
yy If there’s a power failure while the player is on,
there is a chance that some data on the HDD will
be lost.
yy The HDD is very delicate. If used improperly or
in an unsuitable environment, it is possible that
the HDD will fail after a few years of use. Signs
of problems include playback unexpectedly
freezing and noticeable block noise (mosaic) in
the picture.
yy However, sometimes there will be no warning
signs of HDD failure.
yy If the HDD fails, playback of content will not
be possible. In this case, contact the LG service
center by following methods.
Web: http://lgservice.com
yy The manufacturer disclaims responsibility for loss
of data contained in internal HDD.
yy There are some capacities in HDD reserved for
the file system and timeshift.

Appendix
yy If the audio format of the digital output does
not match the capabilities of your receiver, the
receiver will produce a strong, distorted sound
or no sound at all.

Notes on Discs
Handling Discs
Do not touch the playback side of the disc. Hold
the disc by the edges so that fingerprints do not
get on the surface. Never stick paper or tape on the
disc.
Storing Discs
After playing, store the disc in its case. Do not
expose the disc to direct sunlight or sources of heat
and never leave it in a parked car exposed to direct
sunlight.
Cleaning Discs
Fingerprints and dust on the disc can cause poor
picture quality and sound distortion. Before playing,
clean the disc with a clean cloth. Wipe the disc from
the centre to out.
Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol,
benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners,
or anti-static spray intended for older vinyl records.
6
Please save the original shipping carton and
packing materials. If you need to ship the unit, for
maximum protection, re-pack the unit as it was
originally packed at the factory.
Keeping the exterior surfaces clean
yy Do not use volatile liquids such as insecticide
spray near the unit.
yy Wiping with strong pressure may damage the
surface.
yy Do not leave rubber or plastic products in
contact with the unit for a long period of time.
Cleaning the unit
To clean the player, use a soft, dry cloth. If the
surfaces are extremely dirty, use a soft cloth lightly
moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not
use strong solvents such as alcohol, benzine, or
thinner, as these might damage the surface of the
unit.
Maintaining the Unit
The unit is a high-tech, precision device. If the
optical pick-up lens and disc drive parts are dirty
or worn, the picture quality could be diminished.
