Before Use (Cont’d)
Precautions
Handling the unit
When setting the unit
The picture and sound of a nearby TV or radio may be
distorted during playback. In this case, position the unit
away from the TV or radio, or turn off the unit after
removing the disc.
After playing, store the disc in its case.
Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or sources of
heat, or leave it in a parked car exposed to direct sunlight, as there may be a considerable temperature
increase inside the car.
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 center out.
To keep the surface clean
Do not use volatile liquids, such as insecticide spray,
near the unit. Do not leave rubber of plastic products in
contact with the unit for a long period of time. They will
leave marks on the surface.
Cleaning the unit
To clean the cabinet
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.
To obtain a clear picture
The DVD player is a high-tech, precision device. If the
optical pick-up lens and disc drive parts are dirty or
worn down, the picture quality will be poor.
Regular inspection and maintenance are recommended
after every 1,000 hours of use. (This depends on the
operating environment.)
For details, please contact your nearest dealer.
Notes on Discs
Handling discs
Do not touch the playback side of the disc.
Hold the disc by the edges so that fingerprints will not
get on the surface.
Do not stick paper or tape on the disc.

thinner, commercially available cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for older vinyl records.

PREPARATION
Before Operation - VCR part
Using your unit for the very first time
Notes
For the following steps we assume that you have just
connected your video recorder for the very first time.
To make tuning TV stations an easy task your VCR
incorporates the Automatic Channel Memory
System (ACMS). This system will automatically tune
and store TV channels to your VCR. While this is
happening the clock (date & time) in the video recorder
will be set automatically.
The ACMS system relies on signals transmitted by the TV
Station, for auto clock setting and station identification. If
the TV broadcast signal is weak or fluctuates your VCR
may not detect the necessary information and will be
unable to identify station names and sort them correctly.
To overcome this problem please turn to the MANUAL
TUNING section of this book on page 15.

Make sure that you have correctly installed your
VCR and tuned a video channel on your TV as
described earlier in this book.
Press POWER to turn on your VCR.

Dynamic Range Control (DRC)
With the DVD format, you can hear a program’s soundtrack in the most accurate and realistic presentation
possible, thanks to digital audio technology. However,
you may wish to compress the dynamic range of the
audio output (the difference between the loudest sounds
and the quietest ones). Then, you may listen to a movie
at a lower volume without losing clarity of sound. Set
DRC to On for this effect.

made, this unit will pass each type of signal through
without any further processing.

With certain discs, the playback picture may be flickering or Dot Crawl is shown on straight lines. That
means Vertical interpolation or De-interlace is not
perfectly matched with the disc. In this case, the
picture quality may be improved by changing the
video mode.
To change the video mode, press and hold DISPLAY
about 3 seconds during disc playback. The new video
mode number selected is displayed on the TV screen.
Check whether the video quality has improved. If not,
repeat the above procedure until picture quality is
improved.
Video mode change sequence:

MODE5 → MODE1
If you turn off the the power, the video mode will be

An MP3 file is audio data compressed by using
MPEG1, the audio layer-3 file-coding scheme. We call
files that have the “.mp3” file extension “MP3 files”.
The player can not read an MP3 file that has a file
extension other than “.mp3”.
The player can not read a fake MP3 file that has a
file extension “.mp3”.
MP3 Disc compatibility with this player is
limited as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Sampling Frequency / only at 44.1kHz
Bit rate/ within 32 - 320kbps
CD-R physical format should be “ISO 9660”
If you record MP3 files using the software which
cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example “DirectCD” etc., it is impossible to playback MP3 files. We
therefore recommend that you use “Easy-CD
Creator”, which creates an ISO9660 file system.
5. A single session disc requires MP3 files in the first
track. If there is no MP3 file in the 1st track, it cannot playback MP3 files. If you wish to playback MP3
files, format all the data in the disc or use a new
one.
6. We do not recommend using CD-RW discs. Please
use finished CD-R discs only.
7. File names should be named using 8 letters or less
and must incorporate the “.mp3” extension
e.g. “********.MP3”.
8. Do not use special characters such as
“_?!><+*}{`[@ ]:;\/.,” etc.
9. Total number of files on the disc should be less than
200.
10. Use 74 minute CD-R discs (650M), do not use 80
minute CD-R (700M) software.
This DVD player requires discs/recordings to meet
certain technical standards in order to achieve optimal
playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically
set to these standards. There are many different types
of recordable disc formats (including CD-R containing
MP3 files).
Customers should also note that permission is required
in order to download MP3 files and music from the
Internet. Our company has no right to grant such permission. Permission should always be sought from the
copyright owner.
