Placing A Disc
Care And Handling Of Discs
Opening the disc tray
Press x (EJECT) to open the disc tray.
How to handle discs
When handling a disc, do not
touch the surface of the disc.
Since discs are made of
plastic, they are easily
damaged. If a disc gets dirty,
dusty, scratched or warped, the
images and sound will not be
picked up correctly, and such a
disc may cause the unit to malfunction.
x
● Pressing the button again closes the disc tray.
● Use the button to open and close the disc tray.
● Do not block the disc tray with your hand while it is opening or closing
as this may result in hardware failure.
● Do not place unplayable discs or any object other than a disc on the
disc tray.
● Do not press down strongly on the disc tray or place any heavy
objects on it.
Discs without cartridges
Place the disc on the disc tray with the
label side facing up. Since disc size
changes depending on the disc to be
played back, be sure to correctly align
the disc with the grooves for its size. If
the disc is not in its groove, it may be
scratched or otherwise damaged. To
insert an 8 cm disc, place it according
to the inner groove.

DVD-RAM discs contained in
cartridges
Double-sided discs:
Remove the disc from the cartridge. Align the disc with the grooves
on the disc tray as shown in the illustration and insert with the side
you wish to play back or record facing down. If you insert the disc
with “Side A” facing down, programs are recorded on the side A.
Single-sided discs:
Remove the disc from the cartridge. Align the disc with the grooves
on the disc tray as shown in the illustration and insert with the label
side facing up.
Page 10
Label side
Do not damage the label side, stick paper to or use any adhesives
on its surface.
Recording side
Make sure that discs are not scratched and dirty on the recording
side before use. Scratches and dirt on the recording side of a disc
may hinder proper playback and recording. Also be careful that a
DVD-RAM disc may get scratched or dirt when removed from
cartridge then put back in after use.
Storage
Make sure that discs are kept in their cases. If discs are piled on
top of one another without their protective cases, they can be
damaged. Do not put discs in a location where they may be
exposed to direct sunlight, or in a place where the humidity or
temperature is high. Avoid leaving discs in your car!
Maintenance of discs
If there are fingerprints or other dirt adhering
to a disc, wipe with a soft dry cloth, moving
from the centre outwards.
If a disc is difficult to clean, wipe with a cloth
moistened with water. Never use record
cleaners, petrol, alcohol or any anti-static
agents.
CAUTION:
Sometimes during playback, noise may appear or images may
be garbled. This is sometimes due to the disc. (It may not be up
to industry standards.)
These symptoms are caused by the discs, not by the malfunction
of the unit.

GLOSSARY
EN
69
8 Aspect ratio
8 Multiangle
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
wide-screens is 16:9.
By recording multiple scenes progressing at the same time in a
single title, the user can select view angles. This feature is called
the multiangle function.
8 Chapter
8 Multichannel
Refers to individual chapters included in a title.
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.
8 Composite video signal
Refers to video signal comprised of three kinds of signals
combined: an image signal made up of luminance and
chrominance signals using the frequency multiplication technique;
burst signal providing the basis for color reproduction; and
synchronization signal.
8 Component video signal
A video signal system where parts of information necessary for
reproducing image signal comprised of the three primary colors of
light are transmitted via separate signal lines. Types of signal, such
as R/G/B, Y/PB/PR, etc., are available.
8 Disc menu
A screen display prepared for allowing selection of images,
sounds, subtitles, multiangles, etc. recorded on a DVD disc.
8 Dolby Digital (AC-3)

Not all Dolby Digital discs contain six (5.1) channels of information.
8 Down-mix
8 Multilanguage
When a title is created to cope with multiple languages, it is
generally called a multilanguage title.
8 NTSC (National television system committee)
A black and white and color television system format used in the
U.S.A., Canada, Mexico and Japan.
8 PAL (Phase Alternation by Line)
A color television system format used extensively in Western
Europe.
8 Parental Lock
A feature of this system to automatically determine whether or not
to reproduce particular DVD software by comparing its parental
lock level (a measure of undesirability of scenes, etc. from
educational viewpoint) set for the software beforehand with that set
on this system by the user; if the software’s level is less restrictive
than the user-set level, it will be reproduced.
8 Playback control (PBC)
Internal stereo mix of multichannel surround audio by a DVD
player. The down-mix signals are output from stereo output
connectors.
Refers to the signal recorded on Video CDs for controlling
reproduction. By using menu screens recorded on a Video CD that
supports PBC, you can enjoy interactive-type software as well as
software having a search function.
8 DTS
8 Progressive scan
A Digital Surround audio encoding format configured with six (5.1)
channels, similar to Dolby Digital. It requires a decoder, either in
the player or in an external receiver. DTS stands for Digital Theater
Systems.
Not all DTS discs contain six (5.1) channels of information.
Progressive scan displays all the horizontal lines of a picture at one
time, as a single 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.
8 Interlaced scan
8 Region Code
In the conventional video system, a picture is shown on the display
monitor in two halves. The Interlaced scan system places lines of
the second half of the picture in-between lines of the first half of the
picture.
A system for allowing discs to be played back only in the regions
designated beforehand. All the countries in the world are grouped
into six regions, each region being identified by a specified Region
Code (or region number). If the Region Code given to a disc
includes a numeral which matches one in the Region Code of a
player, the player can play back the disc.

Photographic Expert Group, which features small decrease in
image quality in spite of its high compression ratio.
8 Letter box
A method of displaying wide images like movies in the centre of a
4:3 TV screen with no part of the image deleted, by placing black
bands on the top and bottom of the screen. This name has resulted
from the screen form looking literally like a letter box.
8 Sampling frequency
Frequency of sampling data when analog data is converted to
digital data. Sampling frequency numerically represents how many
times the original analog signal is sampled per second.

The rate of transferring digital data. Usually the measure is in baud
per second. The DVD system applies a variable transfer rate
system for high efficiency.
8 MP3
A file format with a sound data compression system. “MP3” is the

Layer 3. By using MP3 format, one CD-R/RW can contain about 10
times as much data volume as a regular CD can.
8 MPEG
A family of Standards for compressing audio-visual information.
“MPEG” standards include MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4. Video
CD and MP3 are based on MPEG-1, while DVD is based on
