Region Codes
This System has a Region One (1) DVD Player. DVDs must be labeled for ALL regions or for Region 1 in order
to play on the DVD Player.You cannot play DVDs that are labeled for other regions. Look for the symbols
below on your DVDs. If these region symbols do not appear on your DVD, you cannot play the DVD in this
DVD Player.
The number inside the globe refers to a region of the world. Region 1 represents the United States, Canada,
upper regions of North America, Bermuda, the U.S.Virgin Islands, and small regions near Australia.
A DVD labelled for a specific region can only play on DVD Players with the same region code.
Color Systems
DVDs are recorded in different color systems throughout the world.The most common color systems are
NTSC (which is used primarily in the United States and North America), PAL, and SECAM.
This DVD Player uses NTSC, so DVDs you play must be recorded in the NTSC system.You cannot play DVDs
recorded in other formats.The color system of the DVD may be listed on the DVD or on the Disc case.
Playable Video Cassettes
The VCR of this System has a High Quality (HQ) system and is compatible with existing Video Home System
(VHS) equipment. Use only video cassettes that have the
mark.The use of other tapes may result in poor
picture quality and excessive deposits on the video heads, which may not be covered by the warranty if damage
occurs.
The VCR also has a 19 micron head, which provides a better picture when you view tapes recorded in slow
speed (SLP).
Kodak Picture CD
This product complies with the KODAK Picture CD format and will display KODAK Picture CDs.The “KODAK
Picture CD Compatible” logo is a trademark of Eastman Kodak Company and is used with permission.

Hookups 7
Determining the best possible connection...
Your hookup will be determined by your existing equipment, especially your TV.These guidelines describe which
options have the best picture (video) and sound (audio) quality.You will not use all the jacks on the System.
If your TV only has an RF-style jack, usually labelled Antenna In, RF In, or 75 ohm, use the
System’s TV ANTENNA OUT jack to connect to the TV. This hookup provides both audio and
video in a single cable. Set your TV to channel 3 or 4 - the output channel of the System.This
connection allows you to use both the DVD and VCR features. Details are on page eight.
If your TV has Component Video In jacks (which could be labelled Y Cr Cb,Y Pr Pb, or YUV and may
be green, blue, and red), use the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks (Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr) for the best
picture quality.
If you use only this video connection, only the DVD picture will be available.To see DVD features on
the TV, set the TV to its Component Video In channel. Details are on page 12.
If your TV has an S-Video In jack (which may be labelled Y/C or S-VHS), use the S-VIDEO OUT jack
for excellent picture quality. If you use only this video connection, only the DVD picture will be
available.To see DVD features on the TV, set the TV to its S-Video In channel. Details are on page 13.
If your TV has a single yellow Video In jack (which may be labelled CVBS, Composite, or baseband),
use the yellow VIDEO (DVD/VCR OUT) jack for good picture quality.This connection provides a
picture for both the DVD Player and the VCR. Set the TV to its Video In channel.
Details are on page 11.
If you have a Stereo with a Coaxial Digital Audio In jack, this provides the clearest sound for the
DVD Player. Connect the System’s DIGITAL AUDIO OUT COAXIAL jack to your Stereo. If you use
only this audio connection, only Disc sound (no VCR) will be available. Details are on page 15.
If digital audio connections are not possible, connect the System’s red and white AUDIO (DVD/VCR
OUT) jacks to the Audio In jacks of your Stereo or TV. This provides sound for both the DVD
Player and the VCR. Details are on pages 11-14.
Before you begin...
●
●
Refer to the manuals of your TV, Cable Box, Stereo, or other devices as necessary. Note the style of jacks
and connectors on the other equipment. Determine how to choose different Audio and Video In channels on
your other equipment so you can see and hear the System playing on the TV, Stereo, etc.
Disconnect all equipment from the power outlets. Connect the equipment to the power outlets only after
you have finished hooking up everything. Never make or change connections with equipment connected to
the power outlet.
Remember...
●
●
●
●
Set the TV to the correct Video In channel. Such channels may be called AUX or AUXILIARY IN,
AUDIO/VIDEO or A/V IN, EXT1 or External In, etc.These channels often are located near channel zero. See
your TV owner’s manual for details. If you do not see the DVD or VCR playback on the TV, go to the lowest
TV channel (01 or 02) and change channels downward until you see the DVD or VCR picture on the TV. Or,
if your TV has only a single Antenna In jack and you are using the RF coaxial cable (as described on page
eight), set the TV to channel 3 or 4.
To find the right Audio/Video In channel, turn on the System. Press DVD to put the System in DVD mode.
With no Disc in the Player, a large DVD logo will appear on the TV screen when you get the TV on the
correct Audio/Video In channel or channel 3 or 4.
Set a separate Stereo (if applicable) to the correct channel or “source” mode.
Depending on your connection, you may need to purchase additional cables or adaptors.
To use the VCR features, you must include a connection with the supplied yellow video cable
and red/white audio cables or with the supplied RF coaxial cable.
Once you determine the best option, find your choice on pages 8-15. Follow the specific steps for
the hookup you choose.

Disconnect the antenna or Cable TV signal from your TV and connect it to the TV
ANTENNA IN jack on the System.
Connect the supplied black RF coaxial cable to the System’s TV ANTENNA OUT jack
and to the Antenna In jack on the TV. The ANTENNA IN jack on the TV may be labelled TV IN,
RF IN, 75Ω (ohm), or ANT. IN. See your TV owner’s manual for assistance.
Set the P/I PROGRESSIVE switch on the rear of the System to I (Interlace).
You are ready to connect the AM and FM antennas and the Speakers. See pages 16-17
to connect these items.
When all connections are complete, plug in the power cords of the TV and the System.
Set your TV to channel 3 or 4. The System’s output channel is 3 when you purchase it. So, set
your TV to channel 3 when the System is new.
If you cannot use channel 3 at your TV, you can change the System’s output channel to channel 4.To
do so, press the VCR button to put the System in VCR mode.The red VCR light will be on the front
of the System. Insert a videotape and press PLAY B to start playback. (You cannot change the
System’s output channel when you adjust the tracking manually. In this case, press STOP C to stop
the playback once.Then, press PLAY B to start playback again.)
During playback, press and hold the (VCR) PLAY B button on the front of the System
for three to five seconds. Each time you do this, the System’s output channel switches between 3
and 4. Change your TV to channel 3 or 4 accordingly.
There is not a channel 3/4 switch on the System (as customary with most VCRs).
If you have not turned on the System already, go to page 19 to complete the VCR’s
First-Time Setup. This process sets up the TV channels and the language for the VCR menu.

Helpful Hints
• Connect the speaker wires
correctly. Improper connections
may short circuit the System.
• For optimal sound, use the
supplied speakers.
• Do not connect more than one
speaker to any pair of speaker
jacks on the System.
• Do not connect speakers with an
impedance lower than 6 ohms.
• Sit in your usual listening position
to set up the speaker balance.
Details are on pages 52-53.
• To avoid magnetic interference, do
not place the FRONT speakers too
close to your TV.
• Placing the REAR (Surround)
speakers farther from the listening
position than the FRONT and
CENTER speakers will weaken the
Surround Sound effect.
• Secure all speakers to prevent
accidents and improve sound
quality. Use the supplied mounting
brackets to mount speakers to a
wall. Details are on page 18.
18 Speaker Setup (cont’d), Remote Control Setup
