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 packaged at the factory.
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.
Cleaning discs

the disc with a clean cloth. Wipe the disc from the center out.
Yes
No
To keep the surface 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.
Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol, benzine,
thinner, commercially available cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for older vinyl records.
Cleaning the unit
About the
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+VCR 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.

LANGUAGE SELECT
The on-screen programming of this DVD+VCR can be

LANGUAGE SELECT can be switched among ENGLISH,
SPANISH and FRENCH by pressing b/B.
AUDIO MODE
The DVD+VCR has two separate audio playback systems, the
high quality VHS Hi-Fi system and standard NORMAL mono
system. The same audio is generally recorded on both
systems. The VHS Hi-Fi system plays on separate (left and
right) channels, and the NORMAL system plays monaural
sound. The normal track is always played so the cassette can
be played on a DVD+VCR that does not have VHS Hi-Fi.
AUDIO MODE can be switched between HI-FI and
NORMAL by pressing b/B.
BROADCAST TYPE (STEREO/SAP/MONO)
Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) carries stereo and/or
Second Audio Program (SAP) bilingual signals. Set this display to
the desired position when both MTS stereo and SAP signals are
received. When only one of the MTS signal is received, the
DVD+VCR automatically selects the corresponding receiving
mode (Stereo or SAP) regardless of the selected position. For
normal operation, the display should be in the STEREO position.
The DVD+VCR will then record a STEREO program when available,
and record a mono program IF the program is NOT IN STEREO.
For weak STEREO and/or SAP broadcasts, changing the display to mono may give clearer sound.
BROADCAST TYPE can be switched among STEREO, SAP,
and MONO by pressing b/B.
AUDIO OUTPUT (STEREO/LEFT/RIGHT)
Used during playback [when AUDIO MODE (HI-FI/NORMAL) is
in HI-FI position] for selecting the audio output signals from the
AUDIO OUT terminals (L ch and R ch), and RF.OUT.
This display setting should normally be left in the stereo position, so that when a stereo tape is played, the stereo sound will
be heard through the left and right channels. If a mono tape is
played and the audio output is set to stereo, the same mono
sound will be heard from both left and right channels.
AUDIO OUTPUT can be switched among STEREO, LEFT,
and RIGHT by pressing b/B.

Dynamic Range Control (DRC)
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

About MP3
An MP3 file is audio data compressed by using
MPEG1, the audio layer-3 file-coding scheme. We call
files that have the .mp3 file extension MP3 files.
The DVD+VCR cannot read an MP3 file that has a
file extension other than .mp3.
The DVD+VCR cannot read a fake MP3 file that has
a file extension .mp3.

Sampling Frequency/only at 44.1kHz
Bit rate/within 32 - 320kbps
CD-R physical format should be ISO 9660
If you record MP3 files using the software which
cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example DirectCD etc., it is impossible to playback MP3 files. We
therefore recommend that you use Easy-CD
Creator, which creates an ISO9660 file system.
A single session disc requires MP3 files in the first
track. If there is no MP3 file in the 1st track, it cannot playback MP3 files. If you wish to playback MP3
files, format all the data in the disc or use a new
one.
This player can play the CD-DA Multi-session disc.
But, we cannot guarantee playability for all other
Multi-session discs.
File names should be named using 8 letters or less
and must incorporate the .mp3 extension
e.g. “********.mp3”.
Do not use special characters such as
“_?!><+*}{`[@ ]:;\/.,” etc.
Total number of files on the disc should be 200 or
less.
If a disc contains more than 200 files, the files with
the numbers 201 or more can not be displayed or
played back.
Use 74 minute CD-R discs (650M), do not use 80
minute CD-R (700M) software.
This DVD+VCR requires discs/recordings to meet
certain technical standards in order to achieve optimal
playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically
set to these standards. There are many different types
of recordable disc formats (including CD-R containing
MP3 files).
Customers should also note that permission is
required in order to download MP3 files and music
from the Internet. Our company has no right to
grant such permission. Permission should always
be sought from the copyright owner.
