Maintenance
The precision parts in this unit are readily affected by the
environment, especially temperature, humidity, and dust.
Cigarette smoke also can cause malfunction or breakdown.
To clean this unit, wipe with a soft, dry cloth.
≥Never use alcohol, paint thinner or benzine to clean this unit.
≥Before using chemically treated cloth, read the instructions that
came with the cloth carefully.
Observe the following points to ensure continued listening and
viewing pleasure.
Dust and dirt may adhere to the unit’s lens over time, making it
impossible to record or play discs.
Use the DVD-RAM/PD lens cleaner (LF-K123LCA1) about once
every year, depending on frequency of use and the operating
environment. Read the lens cleaner’s instructions carefully before
use.

Glossary
Bitstream
This is the digital form of multi-channel audio data (e.g., 5.1 channel)
before it is decoded into its various channels.
CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media)
CPRM is technology used to protect broadcasts that are allowed to
be recorded only once. Such broadcasts can be recorded only with
CPRM compatible recorders and discs.
Down-mixing
This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on
some discs into two channels for stereo output. It is useful when you
want to listen to the 5.1-channel audio recorded on DVDs through
your television’s speakers. Some discs prohibit down-mixing and this
unit can then only output the front two channels.
Reference
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound
that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest
level of sound before distortion occurs. Dynamic range compression
means reducing the gap between the loudest and softest sounds.
This means you can listen at low volumes but still hear dialog clearly.
Film and video
DVD-Video are recorded using either film or video. This unit can
determine which type has been used, then uses the most suitable
method of progressive output.
≥Film is 24 or 30 frames per second, with motion picture film
generally being 24 frames per second.
≥Video is 60 fields per second (two fields making up one frame).
Finalize
A process that makes play of a recorded CD-R, CD-RW or DVD-R
etc. possible on equipment that can play such media. You can
finalize DVD-R on this unit.
You cannot record onto or edit finalized discs.
Formatting
Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM
recordable on recording equipment.
You can format DVD-RAM on this unit.
Formatting erases irrevocably all recordings on the disc.
Frames and fields
Frames refer to the single images that constitute the video you see
on your television. Each frame consists of two fields.
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
An audio compression method that compresses audio to
approximately one tenth of its size without any considerable loss of
audio quality. You can play MP3 you have recorded onto CD-R and
CD-RW.
Pan&Scan/Letterbox
In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention that they be
viewed on a widescreen television (16:9 aspect ratio), so images
often don’t fit regular (4:3 aspect ratio) televisions. Two styles of
picture, “Pan & Scan” and “Letterbox”, deal with this problem.
Pan&Scan: The sides are cut off so the picture
fills the screen.
Letterbox: Black bands appear at the top and
bottom of the picture so the picture
itself appears in an aspect ratio of
16:9.
Playback control (PBC)
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and
information with menus.
(This unit is compatible with version 2.0 and 1.1.)
Progressive/Interlace
NTSC, the video signal standard, has 480 interlaced (I) scan lines,
whereas progressive scanning uses twice the number of scan lines.
This is called 480P.
Using progressive output, you can enjoy the high-resolution video
recorded on media such as DVD-Video.
Your television must be compatible to enjoy progressive video.
Protection
You can prevent accidental erasure by setting writing protection or
erasure protection.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave
(analog signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital
encoding). Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken per
second, so larger numbers mean more faithful reproduction of the
original sound.
VBR (Variable bitrate)
This is a method of video recording that adjusts the bit rate
according to video signal.
+
=
Frame
Field
Field
≥A frame still shows two fields, so there may be some blurring, but
picture quality is generally better.
≥A field still shows less picture information so it may be rougher, but
there is no blurring.

Before requesting service, make the following checks. If you are in doubt about some of the check points, or if the remedies indicated in the chart
do not solve the problem, refer to the “Customer Services Directory” on page 46 if you reside in the U.S.A., or refer to the “Product information” on
page 45 if you reside in Canada. In other areas, consult your dealer.
The following do not indicate a problem with this unit:
≥Regular disc rotating sounds. The sound of the disc rotating may
become louder especially when finalizing a DVD-R.
≥Poor reception due to atmospheric conditions.
≥Image disturbance during search.
≥Interruptions to reception due to periodic satellite broadcasting
breaks.
Power
Page
No power.
≥Insert the AC power supply cord securely into a known active AC outlet.

≥Set the clock.
38
Compared to the actual
recorded time, the remaining
time displayed is less.
≥The displayed recording/play time is converted from the number of frames at 29.97 frames
(equal to 0.999 seconds) to one second. There will be slight a difference between the time
displayed and the actual elapsed time (e.g., actual one-hour elapsed time may display as
approximately 59 minutes 56 seconds). This does not affect the recording.
—
The time recorded on the disc
and the available time shown
do not add up.
The play time shown for MP3
does not agree with the actual
time.
≥Times shown may disagree with actual times.
≥Even if you erase recorded content from the DVD-R, there is no increase in disc space.
≥More disc space than the actual recording time is used after recording or editing the DVD-R
200 times or more.
≥While searching, the elapsed time may not display correctly.
—
—
—
Television reception worsens
after connecting the unit.
≥This can occur because the signals are being divided between the unit and other
equipment. It can be solved by using a signal booster, available from audio-visual suppliers.

27
When playing DVD-Video
using progressive output, one
part of the picture
momentarily appears to be
doubled up.
≥Set “Progressive” in the Video menu to “OFF”. This problem is caused by the editing method
or material used on DVD-Video, but should be corrected if you use interlace output.

There is no apparent change
in picture quality when
adjusted with the Video menu
in the on-screen menus.
≥The effect is less perceivable with some types of video.
