On cleaning
Precautions
On safety
• Caution – The use of optical instruments with
this product will increase eye hazard.
• 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.
On power sources
• 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. To disconnect the AC power cord
(mains lead), grasp the plug itself; never pull the
cord.
• Should the AC power cord (mains lead) need to
be changed, have it done at a qualified service
shop only.
Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a soft
cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent
solution. Do not use any type of abrasive pad,
scouring powder or solvent such as alcohol or
benzine.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your player, please consult your nearest Sony
dealer.
On cleaning discs
Do not use a commercially available CD/DVD
cleaning disc. It may cause a malfunction.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: This player is capable of holding a
still video image or on-screen display image on
your television screen indefinitely. If you leave
the still video image or on-screen display
image displayed on your TV for an extended
period of time you risk permanent damage to
your television screen. Projection televisions
are especially susceptible to this.
On transporting the player
On placement
• Place the player in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the player.
• 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 location near heat
sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, or mechanical shock.
On operation
• If the player is brought directly from a cold to a
warm location, or is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the lenses inside the
player. Should this occur, the player may not
operate properly. In this case, remove the disc
and leave the player turned on for about half an
hour until the moisture evaporates.
• When you move the player, take out any discs. If
you don’t, the disc may be damaged.
Before transporting the player, follow the
procedure below to return the internal mechanisms
to their original positions.

Notes on playing DTS sound tracks on
a CD
• When playing DTS-encoded CDs,
excessive noise will be heard from the
analog stereo jacks. To avoid possible
damage to the audio system, the consumer
should take proper precautions when the
analog stereo jacks of the player are
connected to an amplification system. To
enjoy DTS Digital Surround™ playback, an
external 5.1-channel decoder system must
be connected to the digital jacks of the
player.
• Set the sound to “STEREO” using the
AUDIO button when you play DTS sound
tracks on a CD (page 49).
• Do not play DTS sound tracks without first
connecting the player to an audio
component having a built-in DTS decoder.
The player outputs the DTS signal via the
DIGITAL OUT (COAXIAL or OPTICAL)
jack even if “DTS” in “AUDIO SETUP” is
set to “OFF” in the Setup Display (page 70),
and may affect your ears or cause your
speakers to be damaged.
Notes on playing DVDs with a DTS
sound track
• DTS audio signals are output only through
the DIGITAL OUT (COAXIAL or
OPTICAL) jack.
• If you connect the player to audio
equipment without a DTS decoder, do not
set “DTS” to “ON” in “AUDIO SETUP”
(page 70). A loud noise may come out from
the speakers, affecting your ears or causing
the speakers to be damaged.
• When you play a DVD with DTS sound
tracks, set “DTS” to “ON” in “AUDIO
SETUP” (page 70).

When you connect a stereo TV or 2 front
speakers, TV Virtual Surround lets you enjoy
surround sound effects by using sound
imaging to create virtual rear speakers from
the sound of the front speakers (L: left, R:
right) without using actual rear speakers.
This function is designed to work with the

that if you select one of the TVS settings
while playing a DVD, the player does not
output the following signals from the
DIGITAL OUT (COAXIAL or OPTICAL)
jack.

• When the playing signal does not contain a signal for
the rear speakers (page 49), the surround effects may
be difficult to hear.
• When you select one of the TVS modes, turn off the
surround setting of the connected TV or amplifier
(receiver).
• Make sure that your listening position is between
and at an equal distance from your speakers, and that
the speakers are located in similar surroundings.
Otherwise, the TVS effect may be hard to discern.
• TVS NIGHT only works with Dolby Digital and
MPEG audio discs. However, not all discs will
respond to the TVS NIGHT function in the same
way.
• If you use the DIGITAL OUT (COAXIAL or
OPTICAL) jack, sound will come from your
speakers but it will not have the TVS effect.

Glossary
Chapter (page 9)
Sections of a picture or a music feature that
are smaller than titles. A title is composed of
several chapters. Depending on the disc, no
chapters may be recorded.
Dolby Digital (page 20, 68)
Digital audio compression technology
developed by Dolby Laboratories. This
technology conforms to 5.1-channel
surround sound. The rear channel is stereo
and there is a discrete subwoofer channel in
this format. Dolby Digital provides the same
5.1 discrete channels of high quality digital
audio found in Dolby Digital cinema audio
systems. Good channel separation is realized
because all of the channel data are recorded
discretely and little deterioration is realized
because all channel data processing is digital.
Dolby Surround (Pro Logic) (page 68)
Audio signal processing technology that
Dolby Laboratories developed for surround
sound. When the input signal contains a
surround component, the Pro Logic process
outputs the front, center, and rear signals. The
rear channel is monaural.
DTS (page 20, 68)
Digital audio compression technology that
Digital Theater Systems, Inc. developed.
This technology conforms to 5.1-channel
surround sound. The rear channel is stereo
and there is a discrete subwoofer channel in
this format. DTS provides the same 5.1
discrete channels of high quality digital
audio.
Good channel separation is realized because
all of the channel data is recorded discretely
and little deterioration is realized because all
channel data processing is digital.

DVD (page 6)
A disc that contains up to 8 hours of moving
pictures even though its diameter is the same
as a CD.
The data capacity of a single-layer and
single-sided DVD is 4.7 GB (Giga Byte),
which is 7 times that of a CD. The data
capacity of a double-layer and single-sided
DVD is 8.5 GB, a single-layer and doublesided DVD is 9.4 GB, and double-layer and
double-sided DVD is 17 GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format,
one of the worldwide standards of digital
compression technology. The picture data is
compressed to about 1/40 (average) of its
original size. The DVD also uses a variable
rate coding technology that changes the data
to be allocated according to the status of the
picture. Audio information is recorded in
Dolby Digital as well as in PCM, allowing
you to enjoy a more real audio presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions
such as the multi-angle, multilingual, and
Parental Control functions are provided with
the DVD.
Index (CD)/Video Index (VIDEO CD) (page
9)
A number that divides a track into sections to
easily locate the point you want on a VIDEO
CD or CD. Depending on the disc, no index
may be recorded.
MPEG audio (page 26, 69)
International standard coding system used to
compress audio digital signals authorized by
ISO/IEC. MPEG 1 conforms to up to 2channel stereo. MPEG 2, used on DVDs,
conforms to up to 7.1-channel surround.
Parental Control (page 57)
A function of the DVD used to limit playback
of the disc according to the age of the user
and the limitation level in each country. The
limitation varies from disc to disc; when it is
activated, or playback is completely
prohibited, violent scenes are skipped or
replaced with other scenes, etc.
Region Code (page 6)
This system is used to protect copyrights. A
region number is allocated on each DVD
player or DVD disc according to the sales
region. Each region code is shown on the
player as well as on the disc packaging. The
player can play the discs that match its region
code. The player can also play discs with the
mark. Even when the region code is not
shown on the DVD, the region limit may still
be activated.
ALL
Scene (page 9)
On a VIDEO CD with PBC (playback
control) functions, the menu screens, moving
pictures and still pictures are divided into
sections called “scenes.”
Title (page 9)
The longest section of a picture or music
feature on a DVD, movie, etc., in video
software, or the entire album in audio
software.
Track (page 9)
Sections of a picture or a music feature on a
VIDEO CD or CD (the length of a song).
Technology from Sony developed to produce
surround sound for home use using just a
stereo TV. Designed to work with the sound
characteristics of your TV, this technology
brings the excitement of surround sound to
your home using nothing more than your
stereo TV’s internal speakers. Furthermore,
various TVS modes are available. For
example, TVS WIDE uses just two speakers
to create a virtual sound environment that
makes you feel like you are surrounded by
multiple speakers.
