the creation of DVD software and/or the manufacture
of DVD discs, Toshiba America Consumer Products,
Inc., Toshiba Hawaii, Inc. and Toshiba of Canada, Ltd.
cannot guarantee that this player will play every feature of every DVD bearing the DVD logo. As one of the
creators of DVD technology, Toshiba DVD players are
manufactured to the highest standards of quality and,
as a result, such incompatibilities are very rare. If you
happen to experience and difficulty playing a DVD on a
Toshiba DVD player, please feel free to call our
Contact listed in “How to Obtain Warranty Services” on
page 28.
Notes on DVDs and Video CDs
Some playback operations of DVDs and Video CDs
may be intentionally fixed by software manufacturers.
As this unit plays DVDs and Video CDs according to
disc content designed by the software manufacturer,
some playback features of the unit may not be available
or other functions may be added.
Refer also to the instructions supplied with the DVDs
and Video CDs. Some DVDs made for business purposes may not be played on the unit.
Chapter (DVD only)
Sections of a picture or a musical piece that are smaller
than titles. A title is composed of one or several chapters. Each chapter is assigned a chapter number,
enabling you to locate the chapter you want. Depending
on the disc, chapters may not be recorded.
Track (Video CD and audio CD only)
Sections of a picture or a musical piece on a video CD
or an audio CD. Each track is assigned a track number,
enabling you to locate the track you want.
Scene
On a video CD with PBC (Playback control) functions,
moving pictures and still pictures are divided into sections called “Scenes”. Each scene is displayed in the
menu screen and assigned a scene number, enabling
you to locate the scene you want.
A scene is composed of one or several tracks.
Types of video CDs
There are two types of video CDs:
Video CDs equipped with PBC (Version 2.0)
PBC (Playback control) functions allow you to interact
with the system via menus, search functions, or other
typical computer-like operations. Moreover, still pictures
of high resolution can be played if they are included in
the disc.
Video CDs not equipped with PBC (Version 1.1)
Operated in the same way as audio CDs, these discs
allow playback of video pictures as well as sound, but
they are not equipped with PBC.
Regional code of the DVD player and DVDs
This DVD player is designed and manufactured
for playback of region “1” encoded DVD software. The region code on the labels of some DVD discs
indicates which type of player can play those discs. This
unit can play only DVD discs labeled “1” or “ALL”. If you
try to play any other discs, the message “Check Regional
Code” will appear on the TV screen. Some DVD discs
may not have a region code label even though their playback is prohibited by area limits.

Before Use (Continued)
Precautions
Handling the unit
When shipping the unit
The original shipping carton and packing materials
come in handy. For maximum protection, re-pack the
unit as it was originally packed at the factory.
When setting up the unit
The picture and sound of a nearby TV, VCR, or radio
may be distorted during playback. In this case, position
the unit away from the TV, VCR, or radio, or turn off the
unit after removing the disc.
Storing discs
After playing, store the disc in its case.
Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or sources of
heat, or leave it in a parked car exposed to direct sunlight, as there may be a considerable temperature
increase inside the car.
Cleaning discs
Fingerprints and dust on the disc can cause poor picture quality and sound distortion. Before playing, clean
the disc with a clean cloth. Wipe the disc from the center out.
To keep the exterior surfaces clean
Do not use volatile liquids, such as insecticide spray,
near the unit. Do not leave rubber or plastic products in
contact with the unit for a long period of time. They will
leave marks on the surface.
Cleaning the unit
To clean the cabinet
Use a soft, dry cloth. If the surfaces are extremely dirty,
use a soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent
solution. Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol,
benzine, or thinner, as these might damage the surface
of the unit.
To obtain a clear picture
The DVD player is a high-tech, precision device. If the
optical pick-up lens and disc drive parts are dirty or
worn, the picture quality will be poor.
Regular inspection and maintenance are recommended
after every 1,000 hours of use. (This depends on the
operating environment.)
For details, please contact your nearest dealer.
Notes on Discs
Handling discs
Do not touch the playback side of the disc.
Hold the disc by the edges so that fingerprints will not
get on the surface.
Do not stick paper or tape on the disc.
Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol, benzine,
thinner, commercially available cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for older vinyl records.

4. If you record MP3/WMA files using the software
which cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example
“Direct-CD” etc., it is impossible to playback
MP3/WMA files. We recommend that you use “Easy
CD Creator”, which creates an ISO9660 file system.
5. A single session disc requires MP3/WMA files in the
first track. If there is no MP3/WMA file in the 1st
track, it cannot playback MP3/WMA files. If you wish
to playback MP3/WMA files, format all the data in
the disc or use a new one.
6. File names should be named using 8 letters or less
and must incorporate “.mp3” or “.wma” extension
e.g. “********.MP3” or “********.WMA”.
7. Do not use special letters such as “/ : * ? “ < > ” etc.
8. Total number of files on the disc should be less than

This DVD player requires discs/recordings to meet
certain technical standards in order to achieve optimal
playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically
set to these standards. There are many different types
of recordable disc formats (including CD-R containing
MP3 or WMA files). That require certain pre-existing
conditions (see above) to insure compatible playback.

An WMA file is a Microsoft audio compression
technology.
WMA(Windows Media Audio) offers double the audio
compression of the MP3 format.
MP3/WMA Disc compatibility with this player is

An MP3 file is audio data compressed by using the
MPEG1 audio layer-3 file-coding scheme. We call
files that have the “.mp3” file extension “MP3 files”.
The player can not read an MP3 file that has a file
extension other than “.mp3”.
OFF
Customers should also note that permission is
required in order to download MP3/WMA files and
music from the Internet. Our company has no right
to grant such permission. Permission should
always be sought from the copyright owner.

SERVICING PRECAUTIONS
CAUTION : Before servicing the DVD covered by this service
data and its supplements and addends, read and follow the
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS. NOTE : if unforeseen circumstances create conflict between the following servicing precautions and any of the safety precautions in this publications, always follow the safety precautions.
Remembers Safety First:
General Servicing Precautions
1. Always unplug the DVD AC power cord from the AC
power source before:
(1) Removing or reinstalling any component, circuit board,
module, or any other assembly.
(2) Disconnection or reconnecting any internal electrical
plug or other electrical connection.
(3) Connecting a test substitute in parallel with an electrolytic capacitor.
Caution : A wrong part substitution or incorrect
polarity installation of electrolytic capacitors may result
in an explosion hazard.
2. Do not spray chemicals on or near this DVD or any of
its assemblies.
3. Unless specified otherwise in this service data, clean
electrical contacts by applying an appropriate contact
cleaning solution to the contacts with a pipe cleaner,
cotton-tipped swab, or comparable soft applicator.
Unless specified otherwise in this service data, lubrication
of contacts is not required.
4. Do not defeat any plug/socket B+ voltage interlocks with
whitch instruments covered by this service manual might
be equipped.
5. Do not apply AC power to this DVD and/or any of its
electrical assemblies unless all solid-state device heat
sinks are cerrectly installed.
6. Always connect test instrument ground lead to the
appropriate ground before connection the test instrument
positive lead. Always remove the test instrument ground
lead last.
Insulation Checking Procedure
Disconnect the attachment plug from the AC outlet and turn
the power on. Connect an insulation resistance meter(500V)
to the blades of the attachment plug. The insulation resistance between each blade of the attachment plug and accessible conductive parts (Note 1) should be more than 1Mohm.
Note 1 : Accessible Conductive Parts including Metal panels, Input terminals, Earphone jacks, etc.
Electrostatically Sensitive (ES) Devices
Some semiconductor (solid state) devices can be damaged
easily by static electricity. Such components commonly are
called Electrostatically Sensitive (ES) Devices. Examples of
typical ES devices are integrated circuits and some field
effect transistors and semiconductor chip components.
The following techniques should be used to help reduce the
incidence of component damage caused by static electricity.
1. Immediately before handling any semiconductor component or semiconductor-equipped assembly, drain off any
electrostatic charge on your body by touching a known
earth ground. Alternatively, obtain and wear a commercially available discharging wrist strap device, which
should be removed for potential shock reasons prior to
applying power to the unit under test.
2. After removing an electrical assembly equipped with ES
devices, place the assembly on a conductive surface such
as aluminum foil, to prevent electrostatic charge buildup or
exposure of the assembly.
3. Use only a grouned-tip soldering iron to solder or unsolder
ES devices.
4. Use only an anti-static solder removal device. Some
solder removal devices not classified a “anti-static” can
generate electrical charges sufficient to damage ES
devices.
5. Do not use freon-propelled chemicals. These can
generate electrical charge sufficient to damage ES
devices.
6. Do not remove a replacement ES device from its protec
tive package until immediately before you are ready to
install it. (Most replacement ES devices are packaged with
leads electrically shorted together by conductive foam,
aluminum foil, or comparable conductive material).
7. Immediately before removing the protective material from
the leads of a replacement ES device, touch the protective
material to the chassis or circuit assembly into which the
device will be installed.
Caution : Be sure no power is applied to the chassis or
circuit, and observe all other safety precautions.
8. Minimize bodily motions when handling unpackaged
replacement ES devices. (Normally harmless motion such
as the brushing together of your clothes fabric or the lifting
of your foot from a carpeted floor can generate static electricity sufficient to damage an ES device.)
