What is progressive scanning?
The conventional TV system displays 30 frames of still images per
second to complete sequential movement (interlaced scanning).
Whereas, progressive scanning displays one frame every 1/60th of
a second (60 frames per second) to realize less-flicker, high-density
images.
Compatibility of the progressive scan TV
Some progressive scan TVs are not fully compatible with this product, which may cause image distortion. In this case, switch the video mode from "Progressive" to "Interlace".

Connecting to a TV with an S-video input jack:
If your TV is equipped with an S-video input jack, you can enjoy
higher quality images by connecting it with an S-video cable (not
supplied).
Set the video mode to "Interlace" (default setting). For the procedure, refer to "Changing the video output mode" on page 22.
Connecting to a TV with component video input jacks:
If your TV is equipped with component video input jacks, purchase a

" Remote control
Symptom
The remote control does not operate.
Possible cause
! Is the battery polarity correct?
! Are the batteries dead?
! Is the distance or angle incorrect?
! Are there any obstructions in front of the
main unit?
! Is the remote control sensor exposed to
strong light (inverter fluorescent light, direct
sunlight, etc.)?
! Is the remote control for another equipment
used simultaneously?
The system cannot be turned on
with the remote
control.
! Is the AC power cord of the subwoofer/amplifier unit plugged in?
Sudden temperature changes, storage or operation in an extremely
humid environment may cause condensation inside the cabinet
(laser pickup, etc.) or on the transmitter on the remote control.
Condensation may cause the system to malfunction. If this happens, leave the power on with no disc in the system until normal
playback is possible (about 1 hour). Wipe off any condensation on
the transmitter with a soft cloth before operating the system.
" If trouble occurs
When this product is subjected to strong external interference
(mechanical shock, excessive static electricity, abnormal supply
voltage due to lightning, etc.) or if it is operated incorrectly, it may
malfunction.
If such a problem occurs, do the following:
1 Set the system to the stand-by mode and turn the power on
again.
2 If the system is not restored in the previous operation, unplug and
plug in the subwoofer/amplifier unit, and then turn the power on.
Note:
If neither operation above restores the system, clear all the memory
by resetting it.

When you load an unplayable disc or fail to perform operations
properly, the following messages are displayed on the TV screen.

Disc Error
" Cleaning the cabinet
Meaning
The disc cannot be played with this
system or it is loaded in an incorrect way.
Periodically wipe the cabinet with a soft cloth and a diluted soap
solution, then with a dry cloth.
Caution:
! Do not use chemicals for cleaning (gasoline, paint thinner, etc.).
It may damage the cabinet finish.
! Do not apply oil to the inside of each component as this may
cause malfunctions.
! Since the disc insertion slot faces upward, dust may accumulate on it. Clean it with a cotton
swab, etc.
Optional accessory
" Care of discs
Use only the specified optional accessory to operate this product
properly.
For speaker installation, read instructions supplied with stands.
Discs are fairly resistant to damage, however mistracking can occur
due to an accumulation of dirt on the disc surface. Follow the guidelines below for maximum enjoyment from your disc collection and
player.
! Do not write on either side of the disc, particularly the non-label
side from which signals are read. Do not mark this surface.
! Keep your discs away from direct sunlight, heat, and excessive
moisture.
! Always hold the discs by the edges. Fingerprints, dirt, or water on
the discs can cause noise or mistracking. If a disc is dirty or does
not play properly, clean it with a soft, dry cloth, wiping straight out
from the center, along the radius.
