Using Different Menus
Each disc is programmed with different features. There are two separate menu paths that you can
use to access features: the disc’s menu and the DVD’s status banner. Remember that a feature only
works if the disc was programmed with that feature. For example, if you choose subtitles, the
subtitles only appear if the disc was created with subtitles.
The Disc menu – The disc menu is part of each disc and is separate from the DVD’s status
banner. The contents of each disc’s menu vary according to how the disc was created and what
features are included. The disc menu is turned on when a disc is inserted or you press the
DISC MENU button.
•
The DVD’s status banner – The status banner appears 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 STATUS button on the remote.

To Load and Play a Disc
1.
Lift up the LCD screen and position it to your liking.
2.
Press the POWER button to turn on the unit.
3.
Place a disc gently into the disc slot with the disc’s label facing up (double-sided discs have
content on both sides, so you can place either side up).
The DVD player reads the disc’s table of contents, and then one of following happens depending
on how the disc was programmed:
•
No disc menu appears.
•
The disc menu appears.
•
The disc menu appears on the screen when you press PLAY/PAUSE.
•
The disc starts playing automatically.
When you stop playing a disc, the DVD player remembers where you stopped. When you start
playing the disc again, it picks up where you left off unless the disc is removed, power is turned
off, or the unit is unplugged.
Using a Disc Menu
A disc is capable of having an on-screen menu that is separate from the DVD’s on-screen status
banner. 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 vary from disc to disc, the following example
will give you an idea of what to expect.

Care and Maintenance
Cleaning the Player
CAUTION: Turn OFF your Mobile DVD Player before cleaning.
You can clean the player as required, using a soft lint-free cloth. Be sure to occasionally dust the ventilation slots in the
cabinet to help assure adequate ventilation.
The LCD screen may be cleaned with a soft, lint-free cloth as well. Take care not to scratch or mar the screen. If
necessary, you may use a cloth dampened with warm water. Never use strong cleaning agents, such as ammonia-based
cleaners or abrasive powder. These types of cleaners will damage the player.
While cleaning, do not spray liquid directly on the screen or allow liquid to run down the screen and inside the player.
Also, avoid placing drinks or vases with water on top of the player. This could increase the risk of fire or shock hazard
or damage to the player.
Handling Cautions
•
Before connecting other components to this player, make sure to turn all components off.
•
Don’t put any container filled with liquid or any small metal objects on the player.
•
Keep dirt from entering the player’s disc slot. Dust and grit are abrasive and cause excessive wear to the playback heads.
•
The player might be damaged by improper storage or handling. Do not subject the player to swinging, shaking or dropping.

Chapter 3
Chapter 3: Other Information
•
Exterior influences such as lightning and static electricity can affect normal operation of this player. If this occurs, turn off the
player and on again, or disconnect and then reconnect the AC power cord to the AC power outlet.
•
Be sure to remove the disc, turn off the player and close the LCD screen when not in use.
•
Don’t place anything other than the disc in the disc slot.
•
Do not store the player in temperatures below +4˚F (-15˚C) or above +149˚F (65˚C).
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, it 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 of the 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.
