Precautions
On safety
• Caution – The use of optical instruments with this
product will increase eye hazard.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet,
unplug the player and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
On power sources
• The player is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet, even if the player itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the player for a long time, be
sure to disconnect the player from the wall outlet. To
disconnect the AC power cord (mains lead), grasp the
plug itself; never pull the cord.
• Should the AC power cord (mains lead) need to be
changed, have it done at a qualified service shop only.
On placement
• Place the player in a location with adequate ventilation
to prevent heat build-up in the player.
• Do not place the player on a soft surface such as a rug
that might block the ventilation holes on the bottom.
• Do not place the player in a location near heat sources,
or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust or
mechanical shock.
On operation
• If the player is brought directly from a cold to a warm
location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture
may condense on the lenses inside the player. Should
this occur, the player may not operate properly. In this
case, remove the disc and leave the player turned on for
about half an hour until the moisture evaporates.
On adjusting volume
• Do not turn up the volume while listening to a portion
with very low level inputs or no audio signals. If you
do, the speakers may be damaged when a peak level
portion is played.
On cleaning
• Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do
not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or
solvent such as alcohol or benzine.
If you have any questions or problems concerning your
player, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

from the DIGITAL OUT connectors only when “PCM” in
”DIGITAL OUT” is set to “ON,” and it affects the output
from the LINE OUT (AUDIO 1,2) connectors.
• STANDARD: Normally select this position.
• TV MODE: makes the low sound clear even if you
turned the volume down, so it is good for playing at
night. It is especially recommended when you listen to
the sound using the speakers of the TV.
• WIDE RANGE: It gives you the feeling of being at a live
performance. When you use high quality speakers, it is
more effective.

Glossary
Bit rate (page 37)
Value indicating the amount of video data compressed in
a DVD per second. The unit is Mbps (Mega bit per
second). 1 Mbps indicates that the data per second is
1,000,000 bits. The higher the bit rate is, the larger the
amount of data. However, this does not always mean that
you can get higher quality pictures.
Chapter (page 5)
Sections of a picture or a music piece on a DVD that are
smaller than titles. A title is composed of several chapters.
Each chapter is assigned a chapter number enabling you
to locate the chapter you want.
Dolby Pro Logic (page 47)
Audio signal processing technology that Dolby
Laboratories Corporation developed for surround sound.
When the input signal has the surround component, the
Pro Logic process outputs the front, center and rear
signals. The rear channel is monaural.
DTS (page 12)
Digital audio compression technology that the Digital
Theater Systems, Inc. developed. This technology
conforms to 5.1-channel surround. The rear channel is
stereo and there is discrete subwoofer channel in this
format. DTS provides the same 5.1 discrete channels of
high quality digital audio found in DTS audio systems.
The good channel separation is realized because the all
channel data is recorded discrete and processed in digital.
DVD (page 4)
A disc that contains up to 8 hours of moving pictures even
though its diameter is the same as a CD.
The data capacity of a single-layer and single-sided DVD,
at 4.7 GB (Giga Byte), is 7 times that of a CD.
Furthermore, the data capacity of a dual-layer and singlesided DVD is 8.5 GB, a single-layer and double-sided
DVD 9.4 GB, and a dual-layer and double-sided DVD 17
GB.
MPEG AUDIO (page 12)
International standard coding system to compress audio
digital signals authorized by ISO/IEC. MPEG 1 conforms
to up to 2-channel stereo. MPEG 2 used on DVDs
conforms to up to 7.1-channel surround.
Multi-angle function (page 31)
Various angles, or viewpoints of the video camera, for a
scene are recorded on some DVDs.
Multilingual function (page 14, 31, 42)
Several languages for the sound or sub-titles in a picture
are recorded on some DVDs.
Parental Control (page 44)
A function of the DVD to limit playback of the disc by the
age of the users according to the limitation level in each
country. The limitation varies from disc to disc; when it
is activated, playback is completely prohibited, violent
scenes are skipped or replaced with other scenes and so
on.
Playback Control (PBC) (page 20)
Signals encoded on VIDEO CDs (Version 2.0) to control
playback.
By using menu screens recorded on VIDEO CDs with PBC
functions, you can enjoy playing simple interactive
programs, programs with search functions, and so on.
Title (page 5)
The longest sections of a picture or a music piece on a
DVD; a movie, etc., for a picture piece on video software;
or an album, etc., for a music piece on an audio software.
Each title is assigned a title number enabling you to locate
the title you want.
Track (page 5)
Sections of a picture or a music piece on a CD or VIDEO
CD. Each track is assigned a track number enabling you to
locate the track you want.

Additional Information
Dolby Digital (page 12)
Digital audio compression technology that the Dolby
Laboratories Corporation developed. This technology
conforms to 5.1-channel surround sound. The rear
channel is stereo and there is discrete subwoofer channel
in this format. Dolby Digital provides the same 5.1
discrete channels of high quality digital audio found in
Dolby Digital cinema audio systems. The good channel
separation is realized because the all channel data is
recorded discrete and processed in digital.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format, one of the
worldwide standards of digital compression technology.
The picture data is compressed to about 1/40 of its
original size. The DVD also uses the variable rate coding
technology that changes the data to be allocated according
to the status of the picture.
The audio data is recorded in Dolby Digital as well as in
PCM, allowing you to enjoy more real audio presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions such as the
multi-angle, multilingual, and Parental Control functions
are provided with the DVD.
Glossary
VIDEO CD (page 4)
A compact disc that contains moving pictures.
The picture data uses the MPEG 1 format, one of the
worldwide standards of digital compression technology.
The picture data is compressed to about 1/140 of its
original size. Consequently, a 12 cm VIDEO CD can
contain up to 74 minutes of moving pictures.
VIDEO CDs also contain compact audio data. Sounds
outside the range of human hearing are compressed while
the sounds we can hear are not compressed. VIDEO CDs
can hold 6 times the audio information of conventional
audio CDs.
There are 2 versions of VIDEO CDs.
• Version 1.1: You can play only moving pictures and
sounds.
• Version 2.0: You can play high-resolution still pictures
and enjoy PBC functions.
This player conforms to both versions.
