Introduction
Introduction
Your DVD player is equipped with some special features. The following information summarizes
some of these features.
The On-Screen Information Display
The Info Display is a menu bar that you can bring up to access certain features while discs are
playing. Icons represent the different features supported by your DVD player. By selecting
different Info Display icons, you can access features including Repeat, Audio, Subtitles, Bookmarks
and Camera Angle.
Time Search
The Time Search feature lets you go to a point on a disc by entering the elapsed time in the onscreen time display. For example, if your favorite scene in a movie is one hour and twelve minutes
after the beginning of the movie, you can enter 01:12:00 into the time display and go right to that
point in the movie.
The Bookmarks Feature
You can bookmark a point on a disc that you can go to quickly with the bookmark feature. You
can store up to six bookmarks. For example, if you have a favorite scene in a movie, you can
bookmark it so you can return to it without having to fast forward or reverse to find the exact
scene.
Ratings Limits
Your DVD player allows you to set ratings limits and passwords. For example, you can set the
DVD player so that any movie with a PG-13 rating or above requires a password to be entered.
Since not all discs contain ratings, you can also decide if you want to allow free access or require
a password to view unrated discs.
Scene Again™
When you are watching a DVD disc, by pressing the GO BACK•AGAIN button on the remote you
can replay a scene instantly. The Scene Again™ feature goes back approximately ten seconds and
replays both video and audio while turning on the subtitles.
The TruSurround® option can be used to simulate a six-speaker listening experience through two
speakers.

Connections & Setup
Things to Consider Before You Connect
Protect Against Power Surges
•
Connect all components before you plug any of their power cords into the wall outlet.
•
Turn off the TV and/or components before you connect or disconnect any cables.
•
Make sure all antennas and cables are properly grounded. Refer to the Important Safeguards
sheet packed with your DVD player.
Protect Components from Overheating
•
Don’t block ventilation holes on any of the components. Arrange the components so that air
can circulate freely.
•
Don’t stack components.
•
When you place components in a stand, make sure you allow adequate ventilation.
•
If you connect an audio receiver or amplifier, place it on the top shelf so the heated air from
it won’t flow around other components.
Position Cables Properly to Avoid Audio Interference
•
Insert each cable firmly into the designated jack.
•
If you place components above the TV, route all cables down the side of the back of the TV
instead of straight down the middle of the back of the TV.
•
If your antenna uses 300-ohm twin lead cables, do not coil the cables. Also, keep the twin
lead cables away from audio/video cables.
Connection Pictures
Audio/video cables are usually bundled together. For better visibility, the connection pictures in
this book show each cable separately (audio left, audio right, and video).
Types of Discs Your DVD Player will Play
•
DVD video discs – DVD video discs contain high quality picture and sound content.
•
Audio discs – Audio CDs contain musical or sound content only.
•
Video CD discs – Like DVD video discs, Video CDs contain picture and sound content. The
difference is the amount of information that can be stored on the disc.

Dolby Digital® and DTS®
Both Dolby Digital and DTS are audio formats used to record 5.1-channel audio signals onto the
digital track of film (while the film is being made). Both of these formats provide up to six separate
channels: left, right, center, left rear, right rear, and common subwoofer.
The disc will play 5.1-channel sound only if you’ve connected a DTS or Dolby Digital receiver or
decoder and if the original movie the disc was recorded from was encoded in the Dolby Digital or
DTS format.
Please Read This Before Using the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT Jack!
This player’s digital output jack is designed for a connection to a Dolby Digital or DTS
receiver or decoder.
Older digital equipment may not be compatible with the Dolby Digital bitstream. Such a
connection can create a high level of noise that may be harmful to your ears, and could
damage headphones or speakers.
It is important to choose the correct Digital Output setting in the DVD Player’s Sound menu,
especially when you use the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack. For more information, see chapter 5.

Install Batteries in the Remote
1.
Remove the battery compartment cover on the back of the remote.
2.
Insert new batteries. Match the polarities (+ and –) on the batteries
with the diagram on the remote.
3.
Put the battery compartment cover back on the remote.
Important Battery Information
•
If you’re not going to use the remote for a month or more, be sure
to remove the batteries because they can leak and cause damage.
•
Dispose of batteries in the proper manner, according to federal,
state, and local regulations.
•
Any battery may leak electrolyte if mixed with a different battery
type, if inserted incorrectly, if all batteries are not replaced at the
same time, if disposed of in fire, or if an attempt is made to charge a
battery not intended to be recharged.
•
Discard leaky batteries immediately. Leaking batteries can cause skin
burns or other personal injury.
Point the Remote in the Right Direction
When you want the remote to operate the DVD Player, point the remote
at the DVD Player, not the TV. The remote has to be pointed in the
correct direction and toward the correct component in order for the
remote control’s signal to communicate with the sensor on the
component. Make sure there is a clear path between the remote control
and the component you want to operate so the signal isn’t blocked.
Turn on the TV and DVD Player

How to Find Your TV’s Video Input Channel
You need to tune your TV to the Video Input Channel (or S-Video Channel if you connected the SVideo cable to your TV and to your DVD Player) to see the DVD Player’s menu and to see the
content that’s on a disc. The video channel on TVs varies for different brands and different models.
In order for your DVD remote to work, your TV must be set on the correct video input channel.
Below are some things to try.
•
If your TV brand is RCA, GE, or PROSCAN, press the TV button on the remote that came with
your TV (not the DVD remote). Then press the INPUT button on the remote.
•
If you have another brand, consult your TV’s Owner’s Manual.
If those options don’t work, try one of the following options.
•
Press a button on the TV remote (see table below).
•
Select it from the TV’s menu system.
•
Tune directly to the DVD input channel by pressing a specific number (see table below).
•
Go through all the channels in the channel list by pressing the channel up/down buttons on
the TV.
Some common scenarios are listed in the following table:

Regional Coding
Both the DVD player and the discs are coded by region. These regional codes must match in
order for the disc to play. If the codes don’t match, the disc won’t play. This player’s code is
region 1.
Using Different Menus
Each disc is programmed with different features. There are three separate menu paths that you
can use to access features:
•
The Disc menu – The Disc menu is part of each disc and is separate from the DVD player’s
menu. The contents of each Disc menu varies according to how the disc was authored and
what features are included. The Disc menu is turned on and off (while the disc is playing)
with the MENU button on the remote.
•
The DVD player’s Info Display – The Info Display appears as icons across the top of the
screen when a disc is playing. It can only be accessed while you are playing a disc. It’s turned
on and off with the INFO button on the remote.
•
The DVD player menu – The DVD player’s menu system is accessed only when a disc isn’t
playing. It appears automatically when the STOP button is pressed.
Remember that a feature will only work if the disc was programmed with that feature. For
example, if you choose subtitles on the Info Display, the subtitles will only appear if the disc was
created with subtitles. If a menu item is “grayed out” it means that item isn’t available.
Loading and Playing Discs
Your DVD player plays DVD discs and audio CD discs. Before you load a disc, make sure that it is
compatible with the player. The following discs CANNOT be used with this player:
•
Laserdiscs
•
CD-I, CD-ROM (computer-only discs), CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-ROM
•
Discs recorded using other broadcast standards (i.e. PAL or SECAM)
Note: If the message “Tray Locked” appears on the screen, the retail lock feature has been
accidentally engaged. To unlock the disc tray you must press and hold a combination of
keys simultaneously:
On the front panel of the DVD Player, at the same time press and hold the SKIP FWD,
EJECT and TS SURROUND buttons for at least 3 seconds.

Using a Disc Menu
A disc is capable of having an on-screen menu that is separate from the DVD player’s menu
system and on-screen Info Display. The disc menu might only contain a list of the titles and
chapters, or it may allow you to change features such as language and playback settings.
Although the content and operation of disc menus varies from disc to disc, the following example
will give you an idea of what to expect.

What is a Video CD?
Like DVD video discs, Video CDs contain picture and sound content. Video CDs (VCDs) are
encoded in a different format. VCDs don’t hold as much information as DVD discs and the
picture quality is not as high.
VCDs are divided into tracks, and each track is divided into indexes. A track is similar to a title
and an index is similar to a chapter.
The Video CD Disc Menu
A Video CD disc is capable of having an on-screen menu that is separate from the DVD player’s
menu system and on-screen Info Display. If the disc has a menu, the menu will appear after the
disc is loaded into the player.
The content and operation of disc menus varies from disc to disc. Check the instructions that
accompany the Video CD for more information on how to use the playback control function for
that specific disc.
If a disc menu appears:
1.
Use the number buttons on the remote to select a track (similar to a title).
2.
Press OK or PLAY on the remote to begin playback of the selected track.
3.
Press SKIP+ or SKIP- on the remote (SKIP FWD or SKIP REV on the player) to scroll through
the tracks.
4.
Press MENU to stop playback and return to the disc menu or press STOP to stop playback
and remove the DVD player menu.
To bring up the disc menu during disc play, press the MENU button on the remote.

Handling Cautions
•
Before connecting other components to this player, be sure to turn all components off.
•
Don’t move the player while a disc is being played. The disc may get scratched or broken, and the player’s internal
parts may be damaged.
•
Don’t put any container filled with liquid or any small metal objects on the player.
•
Be careful not to put your hand into the disc tray.
•
Don’t place anything other than the disc in the disc tray.
•
Exterior influences such as lightning and static electricity can affect normal operation of this player. If this occurs, turn
the player off and on again with the ON•OFF button, or disconnect and then reconnect the AC power cord to the AC
power outlet. The player will operate normally.
•
Be sure to remove the disc and turn off the player after use.
Maintenance of Cabinet
For safety reasons, when cleaning the cabinet be sure to disconnect the AC power cord from the AC outlet.
•
Do not use benzene, thinner, or other solvents for cleaning.
•
Wipe the cabinet with a soft cloth.
Formation of Condensation
•
Due to sharp changes in temperature and humidity, condensation may form if warm air comes in contact with any cold
parts inside the player.
•
When condensation forms inside the player, the player may not operate correctly. If this occurs, leave the player at
room temperature until the inside of the player becomes dry and operational.
•
If condensation forms on a disc, wipe the disc with a soft, dry cloth by moving the cloth from the center hole toward
the outer edge.
Handling Discs
•
Don’t touch the disc’s signal surfaces. Hold by the edges or by one edge and the hole in the center.
•
Don’t affix labels or adhesive tape to label surfaces. Don’t scratch or damage the label.
•
Do not use damaged (cracked or warped) discs.
Cleaning Discs
•
Dirty discs can cause reduced video and audio performance. Always keep discs clean by wiping them gently with a soft
cloth from the inner edge toward the outer perimeter.
•
If a disc becomes very dirty, wet a soft cloth in water, wring it out well. Wipe the dirt away gently, and remove any
water drops with a dry cloth.
•
Do not use record-cleaning sprays or anti-static agents on discs. Also, never clean the discs with benzene, thinner, or
other volatile solvents which may cause damage to the disc surface.
