Precautions
This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits set out in the EMC Directive
using a connection cable shorter than 3 metres.
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 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 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 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.
• Hold the HDMI connector straight when
connecting or disconnecting the HDMI cable. Do
not twist or force the HDMI connector into the
HDMI OUT jack.
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.
