Connections and Setup
Things to Consider Before You Connect
Protect Against Power Surges
•
Connect all components before you plug any of their power cords into the wall outlet.
•
Turn off the TV and/or components before you connect or disconnect any cables.
•
Make sure all antennas and cables are properly grounded. Refer to the Important Safeguards
sheet packed with your DVD player.
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 so the heated air from
it won’t flow around other components.
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).
Note: The illustrations in this book are representational, and in some instances may not
exactly match the item represented.
Types of Discs Your DVD Player will Play
•
DVD video discs – DVD video discs contain high quality picture and sound content.
•
Audio discs – Audio CDs contain musical or sound content only.
•
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.
•
CD-R discs – These are the discs you use to download MP3 files to.

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 5.1-channel sound only if you’ve connected a DTS or Dolby Digital receiver or
decoder and if the original movie the disc was recorded from was 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 choose the correct Digital Output setting in the DVD Player’s Sound menu,
especially when you use the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack. For more information, see chapter 5.

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
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.

How to Find Your TV’s Video Input Channel
You need to tune your TV to the Video Input Channel (or S-Video Channel if you connected the SVideo cable to your TV and to your DVD Player) to see the DVD Player’s menu and to see the
content that’s on a disc. The video channel on TVs varies for different brands and different models.
In order for your DVD remote to work, your TV must be set on the correct video input channel.
Below are some things to try.
•
If your TV brand is RCA, GE, or PROSCAN, press the TV button on the remote that came with
your TV (not the DVD remote). Then press the INPUT button on the remote.
•
If you have another brand, consult your TV’s Owner’s Manual.
If those options don’t work, try one of the following options.
•
Press a button on the TV remote (see table below).
•
Select it from the TV’s menu system.
•
Tune directly to the DVD input channel by pressing a specific number (see table below).
•
Go through all the channels in the channel list by pressing the channel up/down buttons on
the TV.
Some common scenarios are listed in the following table:

Regional Coding
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 ways 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 varies 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 menu – The DVD player’s menu system is accessed only when a disc isn’t
playing. Press MENU on the remote to bring up the DVD player menu.
Remember that a feature will only work if the disc was programmed with that feature. For
example, if you have subtitles turned on, the subtitles will only appear if the disc was created with
subtitles. If a menu item is “grayed out” it means that item isn’t available.
•
Information Banners – Banners are a type of information display that appear across the top
of the screen during playback. Information banners are activated by pressing the INFO
button on the remote.
Loading and Playing Discs
Your DVD player plays DVD discs and audio CD discs. Before you load a disc, make sure that it is
compatible with the player. The following discs CANNOT be used with this player:
•
Laserdiscs
•
CD-I, DVD-ROM
•
Discs recorded using other broadcast standards (i.e. PAL or SECAM)
•
CD-G discs play audio only, not graphics

Using a Disc Menu
A disc is capable of having an on-screen menu that is separate from the DVD player’s menu
system and on-screen information banners. The disc menu might only contain a list of the titles
and chapters, or it may allow you to change features such as language and playback settings.
Note: “Default settings” are the settings that the player will default to each time it is turned
on.
Any settings you change with the disc menu only temporarily override the default settings.
Use the Setup Menu of the DVD player to change the default settings (See chapter 6).
Although the content and operation of disc menus varies from disc to disc, the following example
will give you an idea of what to expect.

that are rated (in the U.S.A., the Motion Pictures Association of America rates movies as G, PG, PG13, etc.).
You decide which ratings require a password and which ones don’t. This system ranks the ratings

Programming the Remote
The remote can be programmed to control most brands of remote controllable TVs. The remote is
already programmed to control most RCA, PROSCAN, and GE TVs.
Testing the remote
To determine whether the remote needs to be programmed, turn the TV ON, point the remote at
the TV, and press the TV button. Then press POWER or CH+ (channel up) or CH- (channel down)
to see if the TV responds to the remote commands. If not, the remote needs to be programmed.
Entering Codes
To control a TV that is not from RCA, ProScan or GE, you’ll need to enter the specific codes for
the brand of TV you have.
1.
Turn on the TV to be programmed.
2.
Look up the brand and code number(s) for the TV on the code list in this section.
3.
Point the DVD Player’s remote at the TV.
4.
Press and hold the TV button on the remote.
5.
Enter the code from the Remote Control code list (pp. 67).
6.
Release the TV button, and then press ON•OFF to see if the TV responds to the command. If
it doesn’t, try pressing the TV button and then ON•OFF again.
7.
If you get no response, repeat these steps using the next code listed for your brand, until the
TV responds to the remote commands.
Note: This remote may not be compatible with all brands and models of televisions.
Important!
You must continue pressing the TV button while you enter the code.
For example, let’s say you have a Zenith TV. To program the remote to operate the TV you would:
Press and hold the TV button while you enter the first code listed for Zenith in the TV Codes
column.
Release the TV button. Press ON•OFF to see if the TV responds. If it doesn’t, follow the same
steps, but enter the second code instead of the first.
