• 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.
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.
• Do not place the player in a location near heat
sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, or mechanical shock.
• Do not install the appliance in a confined space, such
as a bookcase or built-in cabinet.
On operation

with very low level inputs or no audio signals. If you do,
the speakers may be damaged when a peak level section is played.
On cleaning
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.
On cleaning discs
Do not use a commercially available 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

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.

some CD-R/RW (or DVD-R/±RW) discs cannot be
played on the unit.
Do not attach any seal or label to either side (the
labeled side or the recorded side) of a disc.
Do not use irregularly shaped CDs (e.g., heart-shaped

Notes on DVDs and Video CDs
Some playback operations of DVDs and Video CDs
may be intentionally fixed by software manufacturers.
As this unit plays DVDs and Video CDs according to
disc content designed by the software manufacturer,
some playback features of the unit may not be available
or other functions may be added.
Refer also to the instructions supplied with the DVDs

Before Use (Continued)
Precautions
Handling the unit
When shipping the unit
The original shipping carton and packing materials
come in handy. For maximum protection, re-pack the
unit as it was originally packed at the factory.
Storing discs
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
When setting up the unit
The picture and sound of a nearby TV, VCR, or radio
may be distorted during playback. In this case, position
the unit away from the TV, VCR, or radio, or turn off the
unit after removing the disc.
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 exterior surfaces clean
Do not use volatile liquids, such as insecticide spray,
near the unit. Do not leave rubber or 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, 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.
6
Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol, benzine,
thinner, commercially available cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for older vinyl records.

Digital Multi-channel sound
A digital multi-channel connection provides the best
sound quality. For this you need a multi-channel
Audio/Video receiver that supports one or more of the
audio formats supported by your DVD Player (MPEG 2,
Dolby Digital and DTS). Check the receiver manual and
the logos on the front of the receiver.
Due to the DTS Licensing agreement, the digital output
will be in DTS digital out when DTS audio stream is
selected.
Notes
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.
Six Channel Digital Surround Sound via digital connection can only be obtained if your receiver is
equipped with a Digital Multi-channel decoder.
To see the audio format of the current DVD in the onscreen display, press

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
