Care and Safety Information
English
DANGER!
High voltage! Do not open the
device. You run the risk of getting
an electric shock.
The machine does not contain any
user-serviceable parts. Please leave
all maintenance work to qualified
personnel.
Cleaning discs
Some problems occur because the disc
inside the player is dirty (frozen picture,
sound disruptions, picture distortions).
To avoid these problems, discs should be
cleaned on a regular basis.
To clean a disc, use a micro fibre cleaning
cloth and wipe the disc from the center
to the edge in a straight line.
Setup
Finding a suitable location
– Place the set on a flat, hard and stable
surface. Do not place the set on a
carpet.
– Do not put any equipment or heavy
objects on top of the set.
– Do not position the set on top of
other equipment that might heat it up
(such as receiver or amplifier).
– Do not put anything under the set
(such as CDs, magazines).
– Install this unit near the AC outlet and
where the AC power plug can be
reached easily.
Space for ventilation
– Place the apparatus in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent
internal heat build up. Allow at least
10 cm (4.0”) clearance from the rear
and the top of the set and 5cm (2.0”)
from the left and right to prevent
overheating.
CAUTION!
Do not use solvents such as benzene,
thinner, commercially available cleaners,
or anti-static sprays intended for analog
discs. Since the optical unit (laser) of the
DVD player operates at a higher power
than regular DVD or CD players,
cleaning CDs intended for DVD or CD
players may damage the optical unit
(laser). Therefore, refrain from using a
cleaning CD.
5cm (2.0")

Frequently Asked Questions (USB)
English
Why does it take so long to display the
contents on my USB device?
– This could be due to the large numbers
of files (>500 files/folders) or size of the
files (>1MB.)
– There could be other non-supported files
in the device that the system is trying to
read/display.
What if un-supported devices (e.g. USB
mouse, keyboards) are plugged into
the player?
– The device may cause the player to be
unstable. Remove the unsupported
device and unplug the mains cord. Wait
for a few minutes before reconnecting
the mains cord and power on the player
again.
What happens when I plug in a USB
HDD?
– HDD is not supported as the large
storage capacity makes navigation very
difficult. Transfer the music files (mp3)
and photos (jpg) into a flash drive.
Why does the system fail to detect my
USB portable music player?
– The portable music player may require
propriety software that is bundled with
our player in order to access the
contents (eg. playlist.)
Why can’t some devices be playback
from USB Port on my player?
– USB Port only offer 500mA current,
could not power up HDD players which
require more current.
– Device which shows USB Mass Storage
Device might actually be USB Hub when
detect in USB analyser.
– Devices in NTFS format can’t be
supported.
– Devices require drivers to be installed
will not supported by this player. They
are not UMS or MTP devices, which does
not require any driver installation or start
up disc. When in UMS or MTP mode, the
device is treated as an external HDD or
portable device.
What types of file does the player
support?
– We support only FAT16 and FAT32, not
NTFS.
Why does the file name appear to be
different from what was displayed on my
computer (e.g. from “Good Bye. jpg” to
“Good_B~1.jpg”)?
– The length of the file name is restricted
by the file system of the device (FAT16),
which only supports eight (8) characters.
– The computer may be able to display the
full file name as the operating system can
convert the file system.
Is simultaneous USB and Disc playback
possible?
– This is not possible due to memory
limitation. In addition, a different user
interface will be needed in order to
function and in order to be simple
enough to use.
Why can’t I rotate the pictures in my
device?
– In order to rotate the pictures in the
USB device, the picture must contain
EXIF information, stored by most digital
cameras. This EXIF information may
have been removed when you edit or
copy the picture from other devices using
editing programs.
Why can’t the player play some of my
music files, photos or movies?
– The music files may not be playable
because of different formats and encoding
bit-rates. Similarly, the photos may be of
low resolution or too high resolution for
the player to support.

Analog: Sound that has not been turned into
numbers. Analog sound varies, while digital sound has
specific numerical values. These jacks send audio
through two channels, the left and right.
Aspect ratio: The ratio of vertical and horizontal
sizes of a displayed image. The horizontal vs. vertical
ratio of conventional TVs. is 4:3, and that of widescreens is 16:9.
AUDIO OUT Jacks: Jacks on the back of the DVD
System that send audio to another system (TV,
Stereo, etc.).
Bit Rate: The amount of data used to hold a given
length of music; measured in kilobits per seconds, or
kbps. Or, the speed at which you record. Generally,
the higher the bit rate, or the higher the recording
speed, the better the sound quality. However, higher
bit rates use more space on a Disc.
Chapter: Sections of a picture or a music piece on a
DVD that are smaller than titles. A title is composed
of several chapters. Each chapter is assigned a
chapter number enabling you to locate the chapter
you want.
Component Video Out Jacks: Jacks on the back
of the DVD System that send high-quality video to a
TV that has Component Video In jacks (R/G/B, Y/Pb/
Pr, etc.).
Disc menu: A screen display prepared for allowing
selection of images, sounds, subtitles, multi-angles, etc
recorded on a DVD.
Digital: Sound that has been converted into
numerical values. Digital sound is available when you
use the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT COAXIAL or
OPTICAL jacks. These jacks send audio through
multiple channels, instead of just two channels as
analog does.
DivX® 3.11/4.x/5.x/6.0: The DivX® codec is a
patent-pending, MPEG-4 based video compression
technology, developed by DivX® Networks, Inc., that
can shrink digital video to sizes small enough to be
transported over the internet, while maintaining high
visual quality.
Dolby Digital: A surround sound system developed
by Dolby Laboratories containing up to six channels
of digital audio (front left and right, surround left and
right, center and subwoofer).
DTS: Digital Theatre Systems. This is a surround
sound system, but it is different from Dolby Digital.
The formats were developed by different companies.
JPEG: A very common digital still picture format. A
still-picture data compression system proposed by the
Joint Photographic Expert Group, which features
small decrease in image quality in spite of its high
compression ratio.
MP3: A file format with a sound data compression
system. ‘MP3’ is the abbreviation of Motion Picture
Experts Group 1 (or MPEG-1) Audio Layer 3. By
using MP3 format, one CD-R or CD-RW can contain
about 10 times as much data volume as a regular CD
can.
English
Glossary
Multichannel: DVD is specified to have each sound
track constitute one sound field. Multichannel refers
to a structure of sound tracks having three or more
channels.
Parental Control: A function of the DVD to limit
playback of the disc by the age of the users according
to the limitation level in each country. The limitation
varies from disc to disc; when it is activated, playback
will be prohibited if the software’s level is higher than
the user-set level.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation): A system for
converting analog sound signal to digital signal for
later processing, with no data compression used in
conversion.
Playback control (PBC): Refers to the signal
recorded on video CDs or SVCDs for controlling
reproduction. By using menu screens recorded on a
Video CD or SVCD that supports PBC, you can enjoy
interactive-type software as well as software having a
search function.
Progressive Scan: It displays all the horizontal lines
of a picture at one time, as a signal frame. This
system can convert the interlaced video from DVD
into progressive format for connection to a
progressive display. It dramatically increases the
vertical resolution.
Region code: A system for allowing discs to be
played back only in the region designated beforehand.
This unit will only play discs that have compatible
region codes. You can find the region code of your
unit by looking on the product label. Some discs are
compatible with more than one region (or ALL
regions).
Title: The longest section of a picture or music
feature on DVD, music, etc., in video software, or the
entire album in audio software. Each title is assigned a
title number enabling you to locate the title you want.
TV OUT jack: Jack on the back of the DVD System
that sends video to a TV.
