this manual thoroughly and retain
it for future reference.
On adjusting volume
Precautions
On safety
• 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.
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.
• Do not place the player in a location near
heat sources, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, or mechanical
shock.
Do not turn up the volume while listening to
a section with very low level inputs or no
audio signals. If you do, the speakers may be
damaged when a peak level section 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.
On cleaning discs
Do not use a commercially available cleaning
disc. It may cause a malfunction.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: This player is capable of holding a
still video image or on-screen display image
on your television screen indefinitely. If
you leave the still video image or on-screen
display image displayed on your TV for an
extended period of time you risk permanent
damage to your television screen. Plasma
display panel televisions and projection
televisions are susceptible to this.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your player, please consult your
nearest Sony dealer.
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.
• When you move the player, take out any
discs. If you don’t, the disc may be
damaged.

Notes
Hookups

• Consumers should note that not all high definition television sets are fully compatible with this product and
may cause artifacts to be displayed in the picture. In case of 525 or 625 progressive scan picture problems,
it is recommended that the user switch the connection to the ‘standard definition’ output. If there are
questions regarding your TV set compatibility with this 525p and 625p DVD player model, please contact
our customer service centre.
• When you connect the player to your TV via the SCART jacks, the TV’s input source is set to the player
automatically when you start playback. In this case, press t (TV/video) on the remote to return the input
to the TV.
• If you set “LINE” in SCREEN SETUP to “RGB” (page 28, 82), the player outputs no component video
signals.
When you play a disc recorded in the NTSC colour system, the player outputs the video signal
or the Setup Display etc. in the NTSC colour system and the picture may not appear on the
PAL colour system televisions. In this case, open the tray and remove the disc.
For DVP-NS955V
• If you are connecting to a VCR, connect your VCR to the LINE 2 jack on the player. The VCR can record
the signal only from your TV.
• If you cannot view the pictures from a VCR through this player which is connected to a TV with RGB
component jacks, set
to t (Audio/Video) on your TV. When you select
(RGB), the TV
cannot receive the signal from the VCR.
• If you want to use your VCR’s SmartLink function, connect the VCR to your TV’s SmartLink jack and
connect the player to the TV with another jack.
• The SmartLink function may not work properly if your VCR is connected to your TV via the SCART jacks
on the player.
Using the PROGRESSIVE button
By using the PROGRESSIVE button on the front panel, you can select the signal format in
which the player outputs video signals (Progressive or Interlace), and the conversion method for
progressive signals. The PROGRESSIVE indicator lights up when the player outputs
progressive signals.
Each time you press PROGRESSIVE, the display changes as follows:
PROGRESSIVE AUTO
m
PROGRESSIVE VIDEO
m
NORMAL (INTERLACE)
Downloaded From DvDPlayer-Manual.com Sherwood Manuals
,continued
19
◆PROGRESSIVE AUTO
Select this setting when:
– your TV accepts progressive signals, and,
– the TV is connected to the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks.
Normally select this under the above condition. This automatically detects the software type, and
selects the appropriate conversion method.
Note that the picture will not be clear or no picture will appear if you select these settings when
either of the above conditions is not met.
◆PROGRESSIVE VIDEO
Select this setting when:
– your TV accepts progressive signals, and,
– the TV is connected to the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks, and
– you want to fix the conversion method to PROGRESSIVE VIDEO for video-based software.
Select this if the image is not clear when you select PROGRESSIVE AUTO.
Note that the picture will not be clear or no picture will appear if you select these settings when
either of the above conditions is not met.
◆NORMAL (INTERLACE)
Select this setting when:
– your TV does not accept progressive signals, or,
– your TV is connected to jacks other than the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks (LINE OUT
(VIDEO) or S VIDEO OUT).
◆About DVD software types and the conversion method
DVD software can be divided into two types: film-based software and video based software.
Video-based software is derived from TV, such as dramas and sit-coms, and displays images at
30 frames/60 fields per second. Film-based software is derived from film and displays images
at 24 frames per second. Some DVD software contains both video and film.
In order for these images to appear natural on your screen when output in progressive format,
the progressive signals need to be converted to match the type of DVD software that you are
watching.
Notes
• When you play video-based software in progressive signal format, sections of some types of images may
appear unnatural due to the conversion process when output through the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT
jacks. Images from the S VIDEO OUT and LINE OUT (VIDEO) jacks are unaffected as they are output in
the normal (interlace) format.
• If you set “LINE” in “SCREEN SETUP” to “RGB,” then the player switches to “NORMAL
(INTERLACE).” This will happen even though you select “PROGRESSIVE AUTO” or “PROGRESSIVE
VIDEO.”

The following display appears.
TVS DYNAMIC
2 Press SUR repeatedly to select
one of the surround modes.
See the explanations given for each item
in the following section.
When you connect a stereo TV or 2 front
speakers, TVS (TV Virtual Surround) lets
you enjoy surround sound effects by using
sound imaging to create virtual rear speakers
from the sound of the front speakers (L: left,
R: right) without using actual rear speakers.
TVS was developed by Sony to produce
surround sound for home use using just a
stereo TV.
If the player is set up to output the signal from
the DIGITAL OUT (OPTICAL or
COAXIAL) jack, the surround effect will be
heard only when “DOLBY DIGITAL” and
“DTS” are set to “D-PCM” and “MPEG” is
set to “PCM” in “AUDIO SETUP”(page 86).
◆TVS DYNAMIC
Creates one set of virtual rear speakers from
the sound of the front speakers (L, R) without
using actual rear speakers (shown below).
This mode is effective when the distance
between the front L and R speakers is short,
such as with built-in speakers on a stereo TV.
TV
◆ For 2 speaker setups
• TVS DYNAMIC
• TVS WIDE
• TVS NIGHT
• TVS STANDARD
◆TVS WIDE
Creates five sets of virtual rear speakers from
the sound of the front speakers (L, R) without
using actual rear speakers (shown below).
This mode is effective when the distance
between the front L and R speakers is short,
such as with built-in speakers on a stereo TV.

◆NORMAL SURROUND
Software with 2 channel audio signals is
decoded with the Dolby Surround (Pro Logic)
decoder to create surround effects. The rear
speakers will emit identical monaural sounds.
If you are using a centre speaker, the
appropriate sounds for the centre speaker will
be delivered.
TV

◆ENHANCED SURROUND
Provides a greater sense of presence from a

◆VIRTUAL REAR SHIFT
Shifts the sound of the rear speakers away
from the actual speaker position.
The shift position differs according to
“REAR” or “SIDE” setting of the rear
speakers (page 87).
Sound Adjustments
◆TVS STANDARD
Creates three sets of virtual rear speakers
from the sound of the actual front speakers (L,

You can enjoy the following surround effects
by using the 2 front speakers and 2 rear
speakers.
Connect the player to the amplifier (receiver)
with the D-1 connection (page 26).
You can experience Dolby Surround (Pro
Logic) sounds or Digital Cinema Sound
(DCS). DCS uses sound imaging to shift the
sound of the rear speakers away from the
actual speaker position or create entire sets of
virtual rear speakers from one set of actual
rear speakers. “VIRTUAL REAR SHIFT,”
“VIRTUAL MULTI REAR,” and

About DivX Video Files
DivX® is a video file compression
technology, developed by DivXNetworks,
Inc. This product is an official DivX®
certified product.
You can play DATA CDs and DATA DVDs
that contain DivX video files.
DATA CDs and DATA DVDs that
the player can play
Playback of DATA CDs (CD-ROMs/CD-Rs/
CD-RWs) and DATA DVDs (DVD-Rs/
DVD-RWs/DVD+Rs/DVD+RWs) on this
player is subject to certain conditions:
– With DATA CDs that contain DivX video
files in addition to MP3 audio tracks or
JPEG image files, the player plays only the
DivX video files.
– With DATA DVDs, the player plays DivX
video files only. Any data other than DivX
video file, such as MP3 audio tracks and
JPEG image files, are not played.
However, this player only plays DATA CDs
whose logical format is ISO 9660 Level 1/
Level 2 or Joliet, and DATA DVDs of
Universal Disk Format (UDF).
You can also play DATA CDs recorded in
Multi Session (page 62), although DATA
DVDs recorded in Multi Session are not
playable.
Refer to the instructions supplied with the
disc drives and the recording software (not
supplied) for details on the recording format.
DivX video files that the player
can play
The player can play data that is recorded in
DivX format, and which has the extension
“.AVI,” or “.DIVX.” The player will not play
files with the extension “.AVI” or “.DIVX” if
they do not contain a DivX video.
z Hint
For details about playable MP3 audio tracks or
JPEG image files on DATA CDs, see “DATA CDs
that the player can play” (page 62).
Notes
• The player may not play a DivX video file when
the file has been combined from two or more
DivX video files.
• The player cannot play a DivX video file of size
more than 720 (width) × 576 (height)/2 GB.
• Depending on the DivX video file, the picture
may be unclear or the sound may skip.
• The player cannot play some DivX video files that
are longer than 3 hours.
About playback order of data on DATA CDs
or DATA DVDs
See “About playback order of albums, tracks
and files” (page 62). Note that the playback
order may not be applicable, depending on
the software used for creating the DivX video
file, or if there are more than 200 albums and
600 DivX video files in each album.
Note
The player may not be able to play some DATA
CDs/DATA DVDs created in the Packet Write

Additional Information
Troubleshooting
If you experience any of the following
difficulties while using the player, use this
troubleshooting guide to help remedy the
problem before requesting repairs. Should
any problem persist, consult your nearest
Sony dealer.
Power
The power is not turned on.
, Check that the mains lead is connected
securely.
, Even if your TV is compatible with
progressive format 525p/625p signals, the
image may be affected when you set the
player to progressive format. In this case,
select “NORMAL (INTERLACE)” using
the PROGRESSIVE button on the front
panel display so that the PROGRESSIVE
indicator turns off and the player is set to
normal (interlace) format.
, If you set “LINE” to “RGB” in “SCREEN
SETUP” (page 28, 82), the player outputs
no component video signals.
, The VIDEO OFF function takes effect
(DVD-NS955V only).
The picture does not fill the screen, even
though the aspect ratio is set in “TV TYPE”
under “SCREEN SETUP.”
, The aspect ratio of the disc is fixed on your
DVD.
Picture
There is no picture/picture noise appears.
, Re-connect the connecting cord securely.
, The connecting cords are damaged.
, Check the connection to your TV (page 17)
and switch the input selector on your TV so
that the signal from the player appears on
the TV screen.
, Set “LINE” in “SCREEN SETUP” to an
item appropriate for your system (page 82).
, The disc is dirty or flawed.
, If the picture output from your player goes
through your VCR to get to your TV or if
you are connected to a combination TV/
VIDEO player, the copy-protection signal
applied to some DVD programmes could
affect picture quality. If you still experience
problems even when you connect your
player directly to your TV, try connecting
your player to your TV’s S VIDEO input
(page 17).
, The disc is recorded in a colour system that
is different from your TV.
, You have selected “PROGRESSIVE
(AUTO)” or “PROGRESSIVE (VIDEO)”
using the PROGRESSIVE button on the
front panel (the PROGRESSIVE indicator
lights up) even though your TV cannot
accept the progressive signal. In this case,
select “NORMAL (INTERLACE)” so that
the PROGRESSIVE indicator turns off.
The picture is black and white.
, Set “LINE” in “SCREEN SETUP” to an
item appropriate for your TV (page 82).
, Depending on the TV, the picture on the
screen becomes black and white when you
play a disc recorded in the NTSC colour

Glossary
Album (page 62, 64)
A unit in which to store JPEG image files or
MP3 audio tracks on a DATA CD. (“Album”
is an exclusive definition for this player.)
Chapter (page 10)
Sections of a picture or a music feature that
are smaller than titles. A title is composed of
several chapters. Depending on the disc, no
chapters may be recorded.
®
DivX (page 70)
Digital video technology created by
DivXNetworks, Inc. Videos encoded with
DivX technology are among the highest
quality with a relatively small file size.
Dolby Digital (page 21, 86)
Digital audio compression technology
developed by Dolby Laboratories. This
technology conforms to multi-channel
surround sound. The rear channel is stereo
and there is a discrete subwoofer channel in
this format. Dolby Digital provides the same
discrete channels of high quality digital audio
found in “Dolby Digital” theatre surround
sound systems. Good channel separation is
realized because all of the channel data is
recorded discretely and little deterioration is
realized because all channel data processing
is digital.
Dolby Surround (Pro Logic) (page 21)
Audio signal processing technology that
Dolby Laboratories developed for surround
sound. When the input signal contains a
surround component, the Pro Logic process
outputs the front, centre and rear signals. The
rear channel is monaural.
DTS (page 21, 86)
Digital audio compression technology that
Digital Theater Systems, Inc. developed. This
technology conforms to multi-channel
surround sound. The rear channel is stereo
and there is a discrete subwoofer channel in
this format. DTS provides the same discrete
channels of high quality digital audio.
Good channel separation is realized because
all of the channel data is recorded discretely
and little deterioration is realized because all
channel data processing is digital.
DVD VIDEO (page 6)
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 singlesided DVD is 4.7 GB (Giga Byte), which is 7
times that of a CD. The data capacity of a
double-layer and single-sided DVD is 8.5
GB, a single-layer and double-sided DVD is
9.4 GB, and double-layer and double-sided
DVD is 17 GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format, a
worldwide standard of digital compression
technology. The picture data is compressed to
about 1/40 (average) of its original size. The
DVD also uses a variable rate coding
technology that changes the data to be
allocated according to the status of the
picture. Audio information is recorded in a
multi-channel format, such as Dolby Digital,
allowing you to enjoy a more realistic audio
presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions
such as the multi-angle, multilingual, and
Parental Control functions are provided with
the DVD.
DVD-RW (page 6)
A DVD-RW is a recordable and rewritable
disc that is the same size as a DVD VIDEO.
The DVD-RW has two different modes: VR
mode and Video mode. DVD-RWs created in
Video mode have the same format as a DVD
VIDEO, while discs created in VR (Video
Recording) mode allow the contents to be
programmed or edited.

DVD+RW (page 6)
Progressive format (page 19)
A DVD+RW (plus RW) is a recordable and
rewritable disc. DVD+RWs use a recording
format that is comparable to the DVD VIDEO
format.
Compared to the Interlace format that
alternately shows every other line of an image
(field) to create one frame, the Progressive
format shows the entire image at once as a
single frame. This means that while the
Interlace format can show 25 or 30 frames
(50-60 fields) in one second, the Progressive
format can show 50-60 frames in one second.
The overall picture quality increases and still
images, text, and horizontal lines appear
sharper. This player is compatible with the
525 or 625 progressive format.
File (page 62, 65)
A JPEG image recorded on a DATA CD or a
DivX video on a DATA CD/DATA DVD
(“File” is an exclusive definition for this
player.) A single file consist of a single image
or movie.
Film based software, Video based
software (page 19)
DVDs can be classified as Film based or
Video based software. Film based DVDs
contain the same images (24 frames per
second) that are shown at movie theatres.
Video based DVDs, such as television
dramas or sit-coms, displays images at 30
frames/60 fields (24 frames/50 fields) per
second.
MPEG audio (page 21, 86)
International standard coding system used to
compress audio digital signals authorized by
ISO/IEC. MPEG 1 conforms to up to 2channel stereo. MPEG 2, used on DVDs,
conforms to up to 7.1-channel surround.
Normal (Interlace) format (page 19)
Progressive JPEGs are used mostly on the
internet. They are different from other JPEGs
in that they “fade in” gradually instead of
being drawn from top to bottom when
displayed on a browser. This lets you view the
image while it is being downloaded.
Scene (page 10)
On a VIDEO CD with PBC (playback
control) functions, the menu screens, moving
pictures and still pictures are divided into
sections called “scenes.”
Super Audio CD (page 6)
A Super Audio CD disc can reproduce sounds
that are extremely faithful to the original
sound by use of DSD (Direct Stream Digital)
technology. This technology utilizes a
sampling frequency of 2.8224 MHz, which is
64 times that of a conventional CD, and 1-bit
quantization that enables the disc to hold 4
times the amount of information that a
standard PCM format CD can hold. Super
Audio CDs are divided into the following
types.
• Super Audio CD (single layer disc)
This disc consists of a single HD layer*.
Additional Information
Normal (Interlace) format shows every other
line of an image as a single “field” and is the
standard method for displaying images on
television. The even number field shows the
even numbered lines of an image, and the odd
numbered field shows the odd numbered lines
of an image.

• Super Audio CD (dual layer disc)
This disc consists of dual HD layers and is
capable of extended play over long periods.

Also, as the dual layer disc consists of dual
HD layers on one side only, you do not have
to turn the disc over during playback.

• Super Audio CD + CD (Hybrid disc)
This disc consists of an HD layer and a CD

Sections of a picture or a music feature on a
VIDEO CD, CD or DATA CD (the length of
a song). (“Track” in DATA CD is an
exclusive definition for this player.)
Video Index (VIDEO CD) (page 13)
A number that divides a track into sections to
easily locate the point you want on a VIDEO
