2. About This Manual
This manual explains the basic procedures for operating the
DVD Player. Some DVD-Video and DVD-Audio discs do not
support the full potential of the DVD technology. Your DVD
Player may therefore not respond to all operating commands.
Refer to instruction notes on discs.
A “ ” mark may appear on the TV screen during operation. It
means that the operation is not permitted by the DVD Player or
the disc.
3. Recording Copyright
Recording of copyrighted material for other than personal use is
illegal without permission of the copyright holder.

WARNING
• When shipping the unit, use the original shipping carton and
packing materials. For maximum protection, repack the unit as
it was originally packed at the factory.
• Do not use volatile liquids, such as insect spray, near the unit.
Do not leave rubber or plastic products in contact with the unit
for a long time. They will leave marks on the finish.
• The top and rear panels of the unit may become warm after
a long period of use. This is not a malfunction.
• When the unit is not in use, be sure to remove the disc and
turn off the power.
• If you do not use the unit for a long period, the unit may not
function properly in the future. Turn on and use the unit
occasionally.
9. To Obtain a Clear Picture
The unit is a high technology, precision device. If the optical
pick-up lens and disc drive parts are dirty or worn down, the
picture quality becomes poor. To obtain a clear picture, we
recommend regular inspection and maintenance (cleaning or
parts replacement) every 1,000 hours of use depending on the
operating environment. For details, contact your nearest dealer.
10. Notes on Moisture Condensation
BEFORE PLUGGING IN THE UNIT FOR THE FIRST TIME,
READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY.
Moisture condensation damages the unit.
Please read the following carefully.
The voltage of the available power supply differs according to
country or region. Be sure that the power supply voltage of the
area where the unit will be used meets the required voltage
(e.g., AC 120 V, 60 Hz) written on the rear panel.
• What is moisture condensation?
Moisture condensation occurs, for example, when you pour a
cold drink into a glass on a warm day. Drops of water form on
the outside of the glass. In the same way, moisture may
condense on the optical pick-up lens inside the unit, one of
the most crucial internal parts of the unit.
5. Do not touch the unit with wet hands
Do not handle the unit or power cord when your hands are wet
or damp. If water or any other liquid enters the case, take the
unit to an authorized service center for inspection.
6. Location of the unit
• Place the unit in a well-ventilated location.
Take special care to provide plenty of ventilation on all sides of
the unit especially when it is placed in an audio rack. If
ventilation is blocked, the unit may overheat and malfunction.
• Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight or heating units as
the unit’s internal temperature may rise and shorten the life of
the pickup.
• Avoid damp and dusty places and places directly affected by
vibrations from the speakers. In particular, avoid placing the
unit on or above one of the speakers.
• Be sure the unit is placed in a horizontal position. Never place
it on its side or on a slanted surface as it may malfunction.
• When you place the unit near a TV, radio, or VCR, the
playback picture may become poor and the sound may be
distorted. In this case, place the unit away from the TV, radio,
or VCR.
7. Care
From time to time you should wipe the front and rear panels and
the cabinet with a soft cloth. For heavier dirt, dampen a soft cloth
in a weak solution of mild detergent and water, wring it out dry,
and wipe off the dirt. Following this, dry immediately with a clean
cloth.
Do not use rough material, thinners, alcohol or other chemical
solvents or cloths since these could damage the finish or remove
the panel lettering.

8. Notes on Handling
• Moisture condensation occurs in the following cases.
– When you bring the unit directly from a cold place to a
warm place.
– When you use the unit in a room where you just turned on
the heater, or a place where the cold wind from the air
conditioner directly hits the unit.
– In summer, when you use the unit in a hot and humid place
just after you move the unit from an air conditioned room.
– When you use the unit in a humid place.
• Do not use the unit when moisture condensation may
occur.
If you use the unit in such a situation, it may damage discs
and internal parts. Remove the disc, connect the power cord
of the unit to the wall outlet, turn on the unit, and leave it for
two or three hours. After a few hours, the unit will have
warmed up and evaporated any moisture. Keep the unit
connected to the wall outlet and moisture condensation will
seldom occur.

Connecting to a TV
Before connecting
• Refer also to the instruction manual of the TV.
• When you connect the DVD Player to the TV, be sure to turn off the
power and unplug both units from the mains before making any
connections.
• Connect the DVD Player to the TV directly. If you connect the DVD
Player to a VCR, TV/VCR combination, or video selector, the playback
picture may be distorted as DVD videos are copy protected.

Making component video connections
If the TV or monitor has component video inputs, making this
type of video connection will produce the ideal picture quality for
the presentation of DVD-Video. Using a component video cable
(sold separately), connect the VIDEO OUTPUT COMPONENT
jacks to the corresponding component video input jacks on the
TV.
Actual labels for component video inputs may vary depending on
the TV manufacturer. (e.g. Y, R-Y, B-Y or Y, CB, CR)
In some TVs or monitors, the color levels of the playback picture
may be reduced slightly or the tint may change. In such a case,
adjust the TV or monitor for optimum performance.

Connecting to an Amplifier
(To Enjoy the Sound Advantage of the DVD Player)
Although you can reproduce the DVD Player’s sound from the TV speakers with the connections on the opposite page,
connecting with an amplifier provides you high quality dynamic sounds.
To reproduce Dolby Digital surround, MPEG1 audio, MPEG2 audio, and DTS surround sound, you need to connect to an
amplifier with a Dolby Digital, MPEG1 audio, MPEG2 audio, and DTS decoder respectively.
Notes
Before connecting
• Refer to the instruction manual of the amplifier.
• When you connect the DVD Player to the amplifier, be sure to turn off
the power and unplug both units from the mains before making any
connections. Otherwise, the speakers may be damaged.
• Connect the plugs securely.

Turning on the DVD Player
Before connecting
• The DV-SP500 is shipped with the main power (POWER)
switch in the on position (_ ON). When the power cord is
plugged in for the first time, the DV-SP500 will automatically
enter the standby state and the STANDBY indicator will
light (same condition after step 2 below).
• Make sure that all the connections on pages 13 and 14 are
complete (the connection to a TV is required).
1
Plug the supplied power cord into
the AC INLET and then into the
power outlet on the wall.
• Do not use a power cord other than the
one supplied with the DV-SP500. The
power cord supplied is designed for use
with the DV-SP500 and should not be
used with any other device.
• Never have the power cord
disconnected from the DV-SP500 while
the other end is plugged into the wall
outlet. Doing so may cause an electric
shock. Always connect by plugging into
the wall outlet last and disconnect by
unplugging from the wall outlet first.
■ Setting the TV System (except for USA and
Canadian models)
The default setting of this player is AUTO, and unless you notice that
the picture is distorted when playing some discs, you should leave it
set to AUTO.
If you experience picture distortion with some discs, set the TV
system to match your country or region’s system. Doing this,
however, may restrict the kinds of disc you can watch. The table
below shows what kinds of disc are compatible with each setting
(AUTO, PAL and NTSC).

About MOD. (Modulation) PAL
• SHRINK
Most models of the newly developed countdown PAL TV system
detect 50 Hz (PAL)/60 Hz (NTSC) and automatically switch
vertical amplitude, resulting in a display without vertical
shrinkage.
• If your PAL TV does not have a V-Hold control, you may not be
able to view NTSC disc because the picture may roll. If the TV
has a V-Hold control, adjust it until the picture stops rolling. On
some TVs, the picture may shrink vertically, leaving black bands
at the top and bottom of the screen. This is not a malfunction; it is
caused by the NTSC = PAL conversion.
• While the STANDBY indicator lights up,
the DVD Player can receive signals from
the remote controller. However, if you
press POWER on the DVD Player to
switch off the main power, the remote
controller cannot be used to turn on the
DVD Player.
• Setting the STANDBY button to standby
does not shut off the power completely.

Adjusting Audio and Video Settings
Setting the TV Screen Size
The width-to-height ratio of conventional TVs is 4:3, while the
width-to-height ratio of wide screen and high-definition TVs is
16:9. This width-to-height ratio is called the aspect ratio.
When viewing software recorded in different aspect ratios, the
image’s height to width ratio can be switched to match the TV
or monitor being used.
Make changes to the TV screen size in the [TV Screen] setting
in the Setup screen Video 1 menu. Please note that changes
to the [TV Screen] setting cannot be made when a disc is
playing. Stop playback of the disc before attempting to make
any changes.

available on the disc is automatically selected.
■ Differences in screen sizes and DVD
formats
The number of screen size formats currently available can be
somewhat confusing. If set incorrectly, the video presentation
may not appear as it should. The following diagrams and
descriptions are intended to help you set your TV screen size
in a way that will allow you to fully enjoy the digital video of
DVD.
The settings in the [TV Screen] setting are perhaps most
applicable when the DVD you are watching is programmed in
the wide screen format. If you have a standard TV, select
either [4:3 (Letter Box)] or [4:3 (Pan & Scan)] based on your
personal preference. If you have a wide screen TV, select
[16:9 (Wide)].

Tip
If this player is set to output progressive-scan video, it’s possible that
the picture will appear stretched when playing discs recorded in 4:3
format. This happens when the TV’s aspect ratio is set at 16:9. To
see the picture in its correct aspect ratio, change the TV setting to
4:3.
If your TV can not be switched between 4:3 and 16:9, set this player
to [Interlace] or [Auto Progressive]. In Auto progressive mode, 4:3
discs will be played in Interlace mode, while discs that are recorded
in both 4:3 and 16:9 will play in interlace mode during the 4:3
sections, and in progressive mode during the 16:9 parts. Switch your
TV’s aspect ratio to the most suitable setting (for more details, see
the manual that came with your TV). When set to [Auto Progressive],
you may see picture disturbance when this player (and the TV)
switches between progressive and interlace modes. This is not a
malfunction of either this player or the TV. Picture disturbance should
only occur when switching from a menu screen to the main feature,
for example.

Setting the Parental Lock Level
This player lets you set the Parental Lock if the DVD has a
parental lock level recorded on it. With Parental Lock capable
discs, you can block access to material you feel is
inappropriate for your children. Refer to the DVD disc jacket
and the accompanying documentation to see if a particular
disc contains a parental lock level.
Make changes to the [Parental Lock] setting in the Setup
screen General menu. Please note that changes to the
Parental Lock level cannot be made when a disc is playing.
Stop playback of the disc before attempting to make any
changes.
You cannot select [Level] or [Country Code] until you have
registered a password. Select [Password] to register a new
password. See ‘Entering the password’ on the this page for
how to register a new password.
When you select either [Level] or [Country Code], it is
necessary to register the password (4-digit code number).
You’ll be asked to confirm your existing password before
registering a new one. Use the following steps at any time you
are asked to enter or confirm your password.
1 Use the cursor buttons (5/∞) or the number buttons to
select a number between 0 and 9.
You can also use the number buttons to enter the numbers
directly. When entering your password for the first time, or
changing it, you will be asked to reenter your password. When
using the number buttons to confirm the password, the numbers
appear as asterisks, and the cursor advances automatically to
the next position.
