qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
On cleaning
Clean the cabinet and controls with
a soft cloth slightly moistened with
a mild detergent solution. Do not

• Do not touch the mains lead or
the AC adaptor with wet hands.
Doing so may cause shock
hazard.
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.
• Do not place the player in a
location near heat sources, or in a
place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, or mechanical
shock.

To connect to a TV with DVI input
Use an HDMI-DVI converter cord (not
supplied). The DVI jack will not accept any
audio signals, so you have to use another
audio connection in addition to this
connection (page 10). Furthermore, you
cannot connect the HDMI OUT jack to DVI
jacks that are not HDCP compliant (e.g., DVI
jacks on PC displays).
When connecting to a standard 4:3 screen TV
Some images may not fit your TV screen. To
change the picture size, see page 21.
b
• Do not connect a VCR, etc., between your TV and
the player. If you pass the player signals via the
VCR, you may not receive a clear image on the
TV screen. If your TV has only one audio/video
input jack, connect the player to this jack.
• Be sure to disconnect the HDMI cord when
moving the player.
• If you place the player on a cabinet with the
HDMI cord connected, do not apply too much
pressure to the cabinet wall. It may damage the
HDMI OUT jack or the HDMI cord.
• When connecting or disconnecting, do not screw
in or rotate the HDMI connector.

TV, the setting display may appear before the
‘BRAVIA Sync’ display. Refer also to the
operating instructions supplied with the TV.
Hookups and Settings
Insert the HDMI connector straight into the
HDMI OUT jack.
Improper handling may damage the HDMI
OUT jack and the connector.
Make sure the connector is not upside down
