Precautions
PREPARATION
Ensure that the AC power supply in your house complies with the identification sticker located on the back of your player. Install your
player horizontally, on a suitable base (furniture), with enough space around it for ventilation (3~4inches). Make sure the ventilation slots
are not covered. Do not stack anything on top of the player. Do not place the player on amplifiers or other equipment which may become
hot. Before moving the player, ensure the disc tray is empty. This player is designed for continuous use. Switching off the DVD player to
the stand-by mode does not disconnect the electrical supply. In order to disconnect the player completely from the power supply,
remove the main plug from the wall outlet, especially when left unused for a long period of time.
During thunderstorms, disconnect AC main plug from the
wall outlet.
Voltage peaks due to lightning could damage the unit.
Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight or other heat
sources.
This could lead to overheating and malfunction of the unit.
Protect the player from moisture(i.e. vases) , and excess
heat(e.g.fireplace) or equipment creating strong magnetic or electric
fields (i.e.speakers...). Disconnect the power cable from the AC supply if
the player malfunctions. Your player is not intended for industrial use.
Use of this product is for personal use only.
Condensation may occur if your player or disc have been stored in cold
temperatures.
If transporting the player during the winter, wait approximately 2 hours
until the unit has reached room temperature before using.
The battery used with this product contain chemicals that
are harmful to the environment.
Do not dispose of batteries in the general household trash.

Back of Wireless Rear Amplifier
When using the wireless transmission antenna
Stand the wireless transmission antenna to face upward for best communication status.
Caution
• Do not apply a strong shock to the wireless transmission antenna. Breakage may result.
• Do not touch the wireless transmission antenna during operation. Noise or interference to communications may result.
Note
• Place the wireless rear amplifier at the rear of the listening position. If the wireless rear amplifier is too close to the main unit, some sound
interruption may be heard due to interference.
• If you use a device such as a microwave oven, wireless LAN Card, Bluetooth equipment, or any other device that uses the same frequency
(2.4GHz) near the system, some sound interruption may be heard due to interference.
• The transmission distance of radio wave is about 33 feet but may vary depending on your operating environment. If a steel-concrete wall or
metallic wall is between the main unit and the wireless rear amplifier, the system may not operate at all because the radio wave cannot
penetrate metal.

P.SCAN(Progressive Scan) Function
Unlike regular Interlace Scan, in which two fields of picture information alternate to create the
entire picture (odd scan lines, then even scan lines), Progressive Scan uses one field of
information (all lines displayed in one pass) to create a clear and detailed picture without visible
scan lines.
Press STOP button.
• When disc is played back, press the STOP button twice so that “STOP”, appears on the display.
2
Press and hold P.SCAN button on the remote control for over 5 seconds.
• Pressing and holding the button for over 5 seconds will select "Progressive Scan" and "Interlace Scan"
repetitively.
• When you select P.SCAN, "P.SCAN" will appear on the display
What is Progressive (or Non-Interlaced) Scanning?
Interlaced Scan (1 FRAME = 2 FIELDS)
In interlaced-scan video, a frame consists of two
interlaced fields (odd and even), where each field
contains every other horizontal line in the frame.
The odd field of alternating lines is displayed first, and
then the even field is displayed to fill in the alternating
gaps left by the odd field to form a single frame.
One frame, displayed every 1/30th of a second, contains
two interfaced fields, thus a total of 60 fields are
displayed every 1/60th of a second.
The interlaced scanning method is intended for capturing
a still object.
Note
Progressive Scan (FULL FRAME)
The progressive scanning method scans one full frame of
video consecutively down the screen, line by line.
An entire image is drawn at one time, as opposed to the
interlaced scanning process by which a video image is
drawn in a series of passes.
The progressive scanning method is desirable for dealing
with moving objects.
• This function works only on TVs equipped with component video inputs (Y, Pr, Pb) that support
•
Progressive Video. (It does not work on TVs with conventional component inputs, i.e., non-progressive
scan TVs.)
Depending on the brand and model of your TV, this function may not work.
Selecting the Video Format
Press and hold NTSC/PAL button on the remote controller for over 5 seconds while the power is turned off.
• "NTSC" or "PAL" will appear in the display.
At this time, press the NTSC/PAL button shortly to select between "NTSC" and "PAL".
• Each country has a different video format standard.
• For normal playback, the video format of the disc must be the same as the video format of your TV.

Please observe the following cautions for your safety.
• Make sure the unit is well-ventilated. If the unit has poor ventilation, the temperature inside the unit could rise
and may damage it.
• Do not obstruct the cooling fan or ventilation holes. (If the cooling fan or ventilation holes are covered with a
