Notes About the Discs
• To keep the disc clean, handle
the disc by its edge. Do not
touch the surface.
Dust, fingerprints, or scratches
on the disc may cause it to
malfunction.
• Do not expose the disc to
direct sunlight or heat sources
such as hot air ducts, or leave it
in a car parked in direct
sunlight as the temperature
may rise considerably inside
the car.
• After playing, store the disc in
its case.
• Clean the disc with a cleaning
cloth. Wipe the disc from the
center out.
4
• Do not use solvents such as
benzine, thinner,
commercially available disc/
lens cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for vinyl LPs.
• If you have printed the disc’s
label, dry the label before
playing.
• Do not use the following discs.
– A lens cleaning disc.
– A disc that has a nonstandard shape (e.g., card,
heart).
– A disc with a label or sticker
on it.
– A disc that has cellophane
tape or sticker adhesive on it.
• Do not resurface the playing
side of a disc to remove
surface scratches.
Precautions
On placement
• Place the player in a location
with adequate ventilation to
prevent heat build-up in the
player.
• Do not place the player on a
soft surface such as a rug that
might block the ventilation
holes.
• Do not install this player in a
confined space, such as a
bookshelf or similar unit.
• Do not place the player in a
location near heat sources, or
in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, or
mechanical shock.
• Do not place the player
outdoors, in vehicles, on ships,
or on other vessels.
• If the player is brought directly
from a cold to a warm location,
or is placed in a very damp
room, moisture may condense
on the lenses inside the player.
Should this occur, the player
may not operate properly. In
this case, remove the disc and
leave the player turned on for
about half an hour until the
moisture evaporates.
• Do not install the player in an
inclined position. It is
designed to be operated in a
horizontal position only.
• Do not place metal objects in
front of the front panel. It may
limit reception of radio waves.
• Do not place the player in a
place where medical
equipment is in use. It may
cause a malfunction of
medical instruments.
• If you use a pacemaker or
other medical device, consult
your physician or the
manufacturer of your medical
device before using the
wireless LAN function.
• Do not place heavy or unstable
objects on the player.
• Do not place any objects other
than discs on the disc tray.
Doing so may cause damage to
the player or the object.
• Take out any discs when you
move the player. If you don’t,
the disc may be damaged.
• Disconnect the AC power cord
and all other cables from the
player when you move the
player.
On power sources
• The player is not disconnected
from the AC power source as
long as it is connected to the
wall outlet, even if the player
itself has been turned off.
• Disconnect the player from the
wall outlet if you are not going
to use the player for a long
time. To disconnect the AC
power cord, grasp the plug
itself; never pull the cord.
• Observe following points to
prevent the AC power cord
being damaged. Do not use the
AC power cord if it is
damaged, as doing so may
result in an electric shock or
fire.
– Do not pinch the AC power
cord between the player and
wall, shelf, etc.
– Do not put anything heavy
on the AC power cord or pull
on the AC power cord itself.
On adjusting volume
Do not turn up the volume while
listening to a section with very
low level inputs or no audio
signals. If you do, your ears and
the speakers may be damaged
when a peak level section is
played.
On cleaning
Clean the cabinet, panel, and
controls with a soft cloth. Do not
use any type of abrasive pad,
scouring powder or solvent such
as alcohol or benzine.
On connecting to the HDMI
OUT jack
Observe the following as
improper handling may damage
the HDMI OUT jack and the
connector.
• Carefully align the HDMI
OUT jack on the rear of the
player and the HDMI
connector by checking their
shapes. Make sure the
connector is not upside down
or tilted.
On cleaning discs, disc/
lens cleaners
Do not use cleaning discs or
disc/lens cleaners (including wet
or spray types). These may cause
the apparatus to malfunction.
On replacement of parts
In the events that this player is
repaired, repaired parts may be
collected for reuse or recycling
purposes.
• Be sure to disconnect the
HDMI cable when moving the
player.

On watching 3D video
images
Some people may experience
discomfort (such as eye strain,
fatigue, or nausea) while
watching 3D video images.
Sony recommends that all
viewers take regular breaks
while watching 3D video
images. The length and
frequency of necessary breaks
will vary from person to person.
You must decide what works
best. If you experience any
discomfort, you should stop
watching the 3D video images
until the discomfort ends;
consult a doctor if you believe
necessary. You should also
review (i) the instruction manual
and/or the caution message of
any other device used with, or
Blu-ray Disc contents played
with this product and (ii) our
website (http://
esupport.sony.com/) for the
latest information. The vision of
young children (especially those
under six years old) is still under
development. Consult your
doctor (such as a pediatrician or
eye doctor) before allowing
young children to watch 3D
video images.
Adults should supervise young
children to ensure they follow
the recommendations listed
above.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: This player is
capable of holding a still
video image or on-screen
display image on your
television screen
indefinitely. If you leave the
still video image or onscreen display image
displayed on your TV for an
extended period of time you
risk permanent damage to
your television screen.
Plasma display panel
televisions and projection
televisions are susceptible to
this.
If you have any questions or
problems concerning your
player, please consult your
nearest Sony dealer.

About wireless LAN security
Since communication via the wireless LAN
function is established by radio waves, the
wireless signal may be susceptible to
interception. To protect wireless
communication, this player supports various
security functions. Be sure to correctly
configure the security settings in accordance
with your network environment.
WEP
WEP applies security to communications to
prevent outsiders from intercepting
communications or intruding into your
wireless network. WEP is a legacy security
technology that enables older devices, which
do not support TKIP/AES, to be connected.
WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK (TKIP)
TKIP is a security technology developed to
correct for the deficiencies of WEP. TKIP
assures a higher security level than WEP.
WPA-PSK (AES), WPA2-PSK (AES)
AES is a security technology that uses an
advanced security method that is distinct
from WEP and TKIP.
AES assures a higher security level than
WEP or TKIP.
