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.
To keep the exterior surfaces 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.
Storing discs
After playing, store the disc in its case.
Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or sources of
heat, or leave it in a parked car exposed to direct sunlight, as there may be a considerable temperature
increase inside the car.
Cleaning discs
Fingerprints and dust on the disc can cause poor picture quality and sound distortion. Before playing, clean
the disc with a clean cloth. Wipe the disc from the center out.
Yes
No
Cleaning the unit
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 player 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.
Notes on Discs
Handling discs
Do not touch the playback side of the disc.
Hold the disc by the edges so that fingerprints will not
get on the surface.
Do not stick paper or tape on the disc.

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
DRC to On for this effect.

About MP3
Video Mode Setting
DVD
With certain discs, the playback picture may be flickering or Dot Crawl is shown on straight lines. That
means Vertical interpolation or De-interlace is not
perfectly matched with the disc. In this case, the
picture quality may be improved by changing the
video mode.
To change the video mode, press and hold DISPLAY
about 3 seconds during disc playback. The new video
mode number selected is displayed on the TV screen.
Check whether the video quality has improved. If not,
repeat the above procedure until picture quality is
improved.
Video mode change sequence:
MODE1 → MODE2 → MODE3 → MODE4 →
MODE5 → MODE1
If you turn off the the power, the video mode will be
back to initial state (MODE1).
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 player can not read an MP3 file that has a file
extension other than .mp3.
The player can not read a fake MP3 file that has a
file extension .mp3.
MP3 Disc compatibility with this player is limited as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
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.
5. 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.
6. We do not recommend using CD-RW discs. Please
use finished CD-R discs only.
7. File names should be named using 8 letters or less
and must incorporate the .mp3 extension
e.g. “********.MP3”.
8. Do not use special characters such as
“_?!><+*}{`[@ ]:;\/.,” etc.
9. Total number of files on the disc should be less than
200.
10. Use 74 minute CD-R discs (650M), do not use 80
minute CD-R (700M) software.
This DVD player 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.
