Chapter 1: Setup and Connections
Things to consider before you connect
Protect components from overheating
•
•
•
•
Don’t block ventilation holes on any of the components. Arrange the components so that air can circulate freely.
Don’t stack components.
When you place components in a stand, make sure you allow adequate ventilation.
If you connect an audio receiver or amplifier, place it on the top shelf.
Position cables properly to avoid audio interference
• Insert each cable firmly into the designated jack.
• If you place components above the TV, route all cables down the side of the back of the TV instead of straight down the
middle of the back of the TV.
• If your antenna uses 300-ohm twin lead cables, do not coil the cables. Also, keep the twin lead cables away from
audio/video cables.
Connection Pictures
Audio/video cables are usually bundled together. For better visibility, the connection pictures in this book show each cable
separately (audio left, audio right, and video).
Types of discs your DVD player can play
• DVD discs – contian picture and sound (DVD-R, DVD+RW are compatible with this player) .
• CDs (CD-R, CD-RW) – Audio CDs contain musical or sound content only. MP3 discs are CDs that
contain MP3 files. This player is also capable of playing CDs that contain JPEG files.
Some discs may not be
compatible due to laser
pickup and disc design.
2
• Video CD discs – Like DVD video discs, Video CDs contain picture and sound content. The
difference is the amount of information that can be stored on the disc. VCDs typically have lower
picture and sound quality than DVD discs.
• Kodak Picture CDs

Chapter 1: Setup and Connections
Connection: DVD + TV + Audio Receiver
Both Dolby Digital® and DTS® are audio formats
used to record 5.1-channel audio signals onto the
digital track of film (while the film is being made).
Both of these formats provide up to six separate
channels: left, right, center, left rear, right rear,
and common subwoofer. The disc will play 5.1channel sound only if you’ve connected a DTS or
Dolby Digital receiver or decoder and if the disc is
encoded in the Dolby Digital or DTS format.
Please Read This Before Using the DIGITAL
AUDIO OUT Jack!
This player’s digital output jack is designed for a connection to a
Dolby Digital or DTS receiver or decoder. Older digital
equipment may not be compatible with the Dolby Digital
bitstream. Such a connection can create a high level of noise that
may be harmful to your ears, and could damage headphones or
speakers. It is important to change the setting in the DVD Player’s
Sound menu. For more information, go to page 42.

Install Batteries in the Remote
1. Remove the battery compartment cover on the back of the remote.
2. Insert new batteries. Match the polarities (+ and –) on the batteries with the diagram inside the
battery compartment.
3. Put the battery compartment cover back on the remote.
Important Battery Information
• If you’re not going to use the remote for a month or more, be sure to remove the batteries because they can leak and cause damage.
• Dispose of batteries in the proper manner, according to federal, state, and local regulations.
• Any battery may leak electrolyte if mixed with a different battery type, if inserted incorrectly, if all batteries are not replaced at the same
time, if disposed of in fire, or if an attempt is made to charge a battery not intended to be recharged.
• Discard leaky batteries immediately. Leaking batteries can cause skin burns or other personal injury.
Point the Remote in the Right Direction and Put it in DVD Mode
When you want the remote to operate the DVD Player, point the remote at the DVD Player, not the
TV. The remote has to be pointed in the correct direction and toward the correct component in
order for the remote control’s signal to communicate with the sensor on the component. Make sure
there is a clear path between the remote control and the component you want to operate, so the
signal isn’t blocked.
Make sure the remote is in DVD mode — press the DVD button.
Turn on the TV and DVD Player
1. Turn on your TV and tune it to the correct Video Input Channel (if you don’t know which
channel is your the Video Input channel, go to page 59 for help).
2. Press the ON•OFF button on the remote to turn on the DVD Player. If the player doesn’t turn on,
press the DVD button and then press ON•OFF.

Chapter 3: Playing Discs
Regional Coding
This DVD Player is capable of playing the following types
of discs: DVDs, audio CDs, Video CDs, MP3 CDs. Before
you put a disc in the player, make sure it is compatible.
You can’t play the following types of discs:, Laserdiscs,
CD-I, CD-ROM (computer-only discs), DVD-ROM, or
discs recorded using other broadcast standards (i.e. PAL
or SECAM).
Note: Some discs may not be compatible due to laser pickup and
disc design.
Both the DVD Player and the discs are coded by region. These regional
codes must match in order for the disc to play. If the codes don’t match,
the disc won’t play. This player’s code is region 1.
Using Different Menus
Each disc is programmed with different features. There are three
separate types of menus that you can use to access features:
• The Disc menu – The Disc menu is part of each disc and is separate
from the DVD player’s menu. The contents of each Disc menu vary
according to how the disc was authored and what features are
included.
The Disc menu is turned on and off (while the disc is playing) with
the MENU button on the remote.
• The DVD player’s Info Display – The Info Display appears as icons
across the top of the screen when a disc is playing. It can only be
accessed while you are playing a disc. It’s turned on and off with the
INFO button on the remote.
Chapter Contents
The beginning of this chapter pertains to DVD discs. Many of
the player’s features work the same way with other types of
discs. Video CDs, Audio CDs, and MP3 CDs are explained later
in the chapter.
14
• The DVD player menu – The DVD player’s menu system is accessed
only when a disc isn’t playing. It appears automatically when you press
the STOP button on the remote.
Remember: A feature will only work if the disc was programmed with that feature. For example, if
you choose subtitles on the Info Display, the subtitles will only appear if the disc was created with
subtitles. If a menu or icon is “grayed out” it means that item (or feature) isn’t available.

Chapter 3: Playing Discs (MP3s)
Playing MP3 Discs
MP3 (MPEG-3, which stands for Motion Picture Experts Group-Layer 3, meaning the third layer of
information) is a format used to compress digital audio. Since the audio is compressed, it takes up
less space.
Obtaining MP3 Files
There are two ways to obtain MP3 files:
• Use your computer software to encode MP3 files from an audio CD — you can download the
software from some internet sites such as MusicMatch.
• Download MP3 files from the internet. Some internet sites allow you to download MP3 files for
free, and some charge a fee.
Creating an MP3 Disc on Your Computer
Your DVD player handles MPEG-1, layer III audio. If you encode your own MP3 files from an audio
CD, avoid using the features of MPEG-2,such as the 22kHz sampling frequency.
Be sure to make a data CD rather than an audio CD. If you make an audio CD,you will lose the
extra features and compression of the MP3 format.
When you burn a CD, take the following steps to get optimal use of the CD for playing in your
DVD player. In your CD burning software, select ISO-9660 for the file system.
Notes:
Help — For more information regarding MP3 encoding software and MP3 sites, visit www.lyrazone.com.
The Joliet file system is not recommended. Using the Joliet file system may result in shortened file names.
Some transport modes (reverse and fast forward) are not available for MP3 CDs.

The Rating Limits feature lets you determine what types of discs can be played in the player, and what types of discs will
require a password to override the rating limit that you’ve set. In the U.S., the ratings feature is based on the ratings set up by
the MPAA (Motion Pictures Association of America) such as R, PG, G, etc.
The system ranks the ratings from 1 to 8 in order to accomodate ratings systems used in other countries (1 is considered
material that is least offensive and 8 is considered the most offensive).
Note: In order for the Ratings to be enforced, the DVD Player must be locked.
