WELCOME
Your in-VEHICLE ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM is designed to give you and your family years of enjoyment. You can watch your
favorite DVD-Video or Video-CD movies, you can listen to your favorite Audio-CD or MP3 albums, or plug-and-play a variety of
standard video games. Please review these Operating Instructions to become familiar with the entertainment system's features
and operation. Pay particular attention to the safety precautions for use of a video player in a vehicle. For additional information
about your in-VEHICLE ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM please contact your dealer.
PRECAUTIONS
This video display is intended for rear seat passenger viewing
only. Installation within the driver's view is illegal in most states,
provinces, and countries, and may lead to driver distraction.
Please be sure to review the owner's manuals, consumer information, and precaution booklets for all video games and video
equipment that you use as auxiliary inputs for your in-VEHICLE
ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM.
Do not insert foreign objects into the DVD Player disc slot.
WARNING! The front glass on the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)
may break when hit with a hard surface. If the glass breaks,
do not touch the liquid crystalline material. In case of contact with
skin, wash immediately with soap and water.
CAUTION: Do not expose the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) to
direct sunlight or intense ultraviolet rays for extensive time periods. Ultraviolet rays deteriorate the liquid crystal.
Do not operate video games and video equipment if the power
cords or cables are broken, split, or damaged.
Avoid touching auxiliary input jacks with your fingers. Do not
blow on them or allow them to get wet or dirty.
Do not clean any part of the unit with benzene, paint thinner, or
any other solvent.

A lightning flash with arrowhead symbol within a triangle is
intended to alert the user to the presence of un-insulated “dangerous voltage” within the product enclosure. The voltage may
be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock.
An exclamation point within a triangle is intended to alert
the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the
appliance (DVD).
WARNING! To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose
this product to rain or moisture.
CAUTION: The DVD Player, LCD Screen & FM Modulator
should be used with 12V DC only. To prevent electrical
shocks and fire hazards, DO NOT use any other power
source.

Note on Discs
Never stick labels on the surface of
the disc or mark the surface with a
pencil or pen.
Always handle the disc by the
edges. Never touch the surface.
To remove fingermarks and dust,
use a soft cloth, and wipe in a
straight line from the center of the
disc to the circumference.
Do not use any solvents such as
commercially available cleaners,
anti-static spray, or thinner to
clean discs.
New discs may have some
roughness around the edges.
The unit may not work or the
sound may skip if such discs
are used.
Use a ball-point pen or similar
item to remove roughness from
the edge of the disc.
Do not use discs that have large
scratches, are misshapen, or
cracked, etc. Use of such discs will
cause misoperation or damage.

GENERAL OPERATION NOTE
Your DVD Player supports many different types of media (CD-DA, DVD-Video, Video-CD, etc.). You will notice some slight differences
in operation between these types of media. THIS IS NORMAL. These differences occur because of the flexibility of these types of media.
At times you will have to read the instructions that appear on the video display screen when you insert a disc to determine what to do. It
is normal that not all buttons on the Remote Control will function for all types of media. Also some buttons will work with one DVD-Video
disc, but may work differently, or not at all, with a different DVD-Video disc.
For example, you may notice that you cannot use the number keys to select chapter on a DVD-Video, although you can use them to
select a track on an Audio disc. You may also notice that the TITLE button may function for some DVD-Video discs, but will either function differently or not at all on other DVD-Video discs.
The DVD player is also programmed to shut off when ever the vehicle is turned off. To resume playing a disc, simply push POWER on
the DVD player or PWR on the remote control.

6. Care of the DVD Player
Environmental Extremes
DVD Players subjected to harsh environmental conditions may be
damaged or operate at less than maximum performance. To prevent damage or poor performance of the DVD Player, remote control, disc, monitor, or headphones, avoid leaving the vehicle:
in extremely hot or cold temperatures
in direct sunlight
in high humidity
in a dusty environment
on a surface that is unstable or subject to vibrations
Temperature Extremes
If the vehicle is parked in the sun or in an extremely cold place for
a long time, wait until the interior temperature is normalized before
operating the system.
Cleaning The DVD Player
Over time, particles will fall from the discs, and settle on the DVD
Player optical pick-up. This along with dust particles in the air, can
cause a dirty pick-up. This may cause your DVD Player to not be
able to read a disc, or for the disc to skip. A variety of products are
available at electronics stores to clean the DVD Player pick-up.
Use these products sparingly. If normal pick-up cleaning procedures do not resolve the problem, have the system checked by
your automobile dealer.
-20-
Foreign Substances
Exercise care to prevent dirt and foreign objects from entering the
DVD Player disc slot. Be especially careful not to spill liquids of
any kind onto the DVD Player or any other component. If you accidentally spill liquid onto any component, immediately turn the component OFF (and remove batteries if applicable) and consult your
automobile dealer.
Cleaning the Display Screen
Clean the display screen with 70% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol). Apply a small amount of cleaner to a soft cloth, and rub gently until dirt or fingerprints are removed. To prevent damage of
electronics, do not spray the screen directly. Do not apply excessive pressure while cleaning.
