■ Notes about handling discs
• Hold discs by touching only the edges or center hole.
PLAYBACK
• Do not try to clean the disc’s surface by using any type
of disc cleaner, record spray, anti-static spray or liquid,
or any other chemical-based liquid, because such
substances might irreparably damage the disc’s surface.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high temperature
or high humidity for a long period of time, because these
might warp or otherwise damage the disc.
No!
SETUP MENU
• When a disc is not currently being loaded on the disc
tray, store it in an appropriate case.
• Playback of discs is generally not affected by small
particles of dust or fingerprints on their playing surface.
Even so, they should be kept clean. Wipe by using a
clean, dry cloth. Do not wipe with a circular motion;
wipe straight outward from the center.

If your AV amplifier has video output terminals, connect
your amplifier (and then to your video monitor) so that you
can use one video monitor for several different video
sources (LD, VCR etc.) by simply switching the input
source selector of your amplifier.
This unit has three types of video output terminals. Use one
of them in accordance with the input terminals of the
equipment to be connected.
Note
• Do not connect this unit to a video monitor through a video
cassette recorder. If you do so, the picture may not be played back

Component video connection achieves high fidelity in
reproducing colors (better performance than S-video
connection), separating video signal into luminance (Y,
terminal color-coded as green), and color difference (PB,
blue/PR, red). Use commercially available coaxial cables.
Amplifier (and Video monitor) with component input is
required. Observe the color of each terminal when connecting. If your amplifier does not have component output
terminals, connecting this unit’s component output directly
to your video monitor’s component input can reproduce
better video image.
Note
• Do not connect this unit’s COMPONENT VIDEO OUT terminals
to component video input terminals special for HD (HighDefinition) TV.
■ S-Video terminal <B>
S (separate) video connection achieves a clearer picture than
composite video connection by separating color and
luminance when transmitting signals. Use commercially
available S-video cable. Amplifier (and Video monitor) with
S-video input is required.
■ Composite Video terminal (1, 2) <C>
Use RCA video cable supplied with this unit when
connecting this unit to a video monitor.
VIDEO 1, 2 terminals of VIDEO OUT output the same
signal. You can connect one to your amplifier’s input using
supplied RCA cable, and the other to another amplifier or a
video monitor.

can use this unit’s 21-pin SCART output terminal (this
terminal does not output RGB component signals).
(Pin no.2, 5 to7, 9 to 12, 20: no connection)
