cloth. Wipe the disc from the
centre out.
• Do not use solvents such as
benzine, thinner, commercially
available cleaners, or anti-static

On adjusting volume
Precautions
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
cabinet, unplug the player and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
On power sources
• The player is not disconnected from the AC
power source (mains) as long as it is
connected to the wall outlet, even if the
player itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the player for a
long time, be sure to disconnect the player
from the wall outlet. To disconnect the AC
power cord (mains lead), grasp the plug
itself; never pull the cord.
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.
• Install the player so that the AC power cord
(mains lead) can be unplugged from the
wall socket immediately in the event of
trouble.
On operation
• 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.
• When you move the player, take out any
discs. If you don’t, the disc may be
damaged.
Do not turn up the volume while listening to
a section with very low level inputs or no
audio signals. If you do, the speakers may be
damaged when a peak level section is played.
On cleaning
Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a
soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild
detergent solution. 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 event that this unit is repaired, repaired
parts may be collected for reuse or recycling
purposes.
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 on-screen
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.

To connect to a TV with DVI input
Note
When connecting to a progressive TV, it is
recommended that you use only pattern C. If you
connect to your TV using both C and D, a special
control signal transmitted via the SCART cable
may cause the signal to be switched to the SCART
jack.
A Video input jack
You will enjoy standard quality images.
With this connection, select “NORMAL
(INTERLACE)” (default) by pressing the
PROGRESSIVE button on the front panel.
B HDMI/DVI input jack
Use a certified Sony HDMI cord to enjoy
high quality digital picture and sound through
the HDMI OUT jack.
When connecting to a Sony TV that is

the back of the player and the HDMI
connector by checking their shapes.
Make sure the connector is not upside
down or tilted.
Connector is upside
down
2
Not straight
Insert the HDMI connector straight into
the HDMI OUT jack.
Do not bend or apply pressure to the
HDMI connector.
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 19). Furthermore, you
cannot connect the HDMI OUT jack to DVI
jacks that are not HDCP compliant (e.g., DVI
jacks on PC displays).
C Component video input jacks
(Y, PB/CB, PR/CR)
You will enjoy accurate colour reproduction
and high quality images.
If your TV accepts progressive 525p/625p
format signals, use this connection and press
the PROGRESSIVE button on the front panel
to output progressive signals. For details, see
“Using the PROGRESSIVE button” (page
17).
D SCART input jack
Be sure to make the connections firmly to
avoid hum and noise. When you connect
using the SCART cord, check that the TV
conforms to S video or RGB signals. Refer to
the operating instructions supplied with the
TV to be connected. Also, when you set
“LINE” to “S VIDEO” or “RGB
(COMPONENT OFF)” under “SCREEN
SETUP” in the Setup Display (page 59), use
a SCART cord that conforms to each signal.
With this connection, select “NORMAL
(INTERLACE)” (default) by pressing the
PROGRESSIVE button on the front panel.
When connecting to a standard 4:3 screen
TV
Depending on the disc, the image may not fit
your TV screen. To change the aspect ratio,
see page 58.
Notes
• Do not connect more than one type of video cord
between the player and your TV at the same time.
• Do not use connections B and D at the same
time.
• 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.

• When you connect the player to your TV via the
SCART jacks, the TV’s input source is set to the
player automatically when you start playback. In
this case, press t (TV/video) on the remote to
return the input to the TV.
• If you set “LINE” in SCREEN SETUP to “RGB
(COMPONENT OFF)” (page 59), the player
outputs no component video signals.
• Be sure to disconnect the HDMI cord when
moving the player.
• Do not apply too much pressure to the cabinet
wall, if you place the player on the cabinet with
the HDMI cord connected. It may damage the
HDMI OUT jack or the HDMI cord.
• When connecting or disconnecting, do not screw
in or rotate the HDMI connector.
When you play a disc recorded in the NTSC
colour system, the player outputs the video
signal or the Setup Display etc. in the NTSC
colour system and the picture may not
appear on the PAL colour system

Using the PROGRESSIVE button
By using the PROGRESSIVE button on the
front panel, you can select the signal format in
which the player outputs video signals
(Progressive or Interlace), and the conversion
method for progressive signals.
Each time you press the PROGRESSIVE
button, the display changes as follows:
PROGRESSIVE AUTO
m
PROGRESSIVE VIDEO
m
NORMAL (INTERLACE)
,
VCR
◆PROGRESSIVE AUTO
Select this setting when:
– your TV accepts progressive signals, and,
– the TV is connected to the COMPONENT
VIDEO OUT jacks.
Normally select this under the above
condition. This automatically detects the
software type, and selects the appropriate
conversion method.
Note that the picture will not be clear or no
picture will appear if you select these settings
when either of the above conditions is not
met.
◆PROGRESSIVE VIDEO
Select this setting when:
– your TV accepts progressive signals, and,
– the TV is connected to the COMPONENT
VIDEO OUT jacks, and,
– you want to fix the conversion method to
PROGRESSIVE VIDEO for video-based
software.

Select this if the image is not clear when you
select PROGRESSIVE AUTO.
Note that the picture will not be clear or no
picture will appear if you select these settings
when either of the above conditions is not
met.
◆NORMAL (INTERLACE)
Select this setting when:
– your TV does not accept progressive
signals, or,
– your TV is connected to jacks other than
the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks
(LINE OUT (VIDEO)).
◆About DVD software types and the
conversion method
DVD software can be divided into two types:
film-based software and video-based
software.
Video-based software is derived from TV,
such as dramas and sitcoms, and displays
images at 25 frames/50 fields (30 frames/60
fields) per second. Film-based software is
derived from film and displays images at 24
frames per second. Some DVD software
contains both video and film.
In order for these images to appear natural on
your screen when output in progressive
format, the progressive signals need to be
converted to match the type of DVD software
that you are watching.
Notes
• When you play video-based software in
progressive signal format, sections of some types
of images may appear unnatural due to the
conversion process when output through the
COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks. Images from
LINE OUT (VIDEO) jacks are unaffected as they
are output in the normal (interlace) format.
• If you set “LINE” in “SCREEN SETUP” to
“RGB (COMPONENT OFF),” the player
switches to “NORMAL (INTERLACE).” This
will happen even though you select
“PROGRESSIVE AUTO” or “PROGRESSIVE
VIDEO.”

• When playing in DVD-VR mode: If you connect
to an audio component using the DIGITAL OUT
(COAXIAL)/HDMI OUT jack and want to switch
between the sound tracks, set “DOLBY
DIGITAL” to “D-PCM” in “AUDIO SETUP”
(page 63).

TV Virtual Surround
Settings (TVS)
When you connect a stereo TV or 2 front
speakers, TVS (TV Virtual Surround) lets
you enjoy surround sound effects by using
sound imaging to create virtual rear speakers
from the sound of the front speakers (L: left,
R: right) without using actual rear speakers.
TVS was developed by Sony to produce
surround sound for home use using just a
stereo TV.
This only works when playing a multichannel
Dolby audio sound track. Furthermore, if the
player is set up to output the signal from the
DIGITAL OUT (COAXIAL)/HDMI OUT
jack, the surround effect will only be heard
when “DOLBY DIGITAL” is set to “DPCM” and “MPEG” is set to “PCM” in
“AUDIO SETUP” (page 63).
SUR
1 Press SUR during playback.
The following display appears.
TVS DYNAMIC THEATER
To cancel the setting
Select “OFF” in step 2.
◆TVS DYNAMIC THEATER, TVS DYNAMIC,
TVS WIDE
This mode is effective when the distance
between the front L and R speakers is short,
such as with built-in speakers on a stereo TV.
◆TVS NIGHT
This feature is useful when you want to hear
the dialogue and enjoy the surround sound
effects of “TVS WIDE” at low volume.
◆TVS STANDARD
Use this setting when you want to use TVS
with 2 separate speakers.
Notes
• When the playing signal does not contain a signal
for the rear speakers, the surround effects cannot
be heard.
• When you select one of the TVS modes, turn off
the surround setting of the connected TV or audio
component.
• Not all discs will respond to the “TVS NIGHT”
function in the same way.
• Make sure that your listening position is between
and at an equal distance from your speakers, and
that the speakers are located in similar
surroundings.
• If you use the DIGITAL OUT (COAXIAL)/
HDMI OUT jack and set “DOLBY DIGITAL” to
“DOLBY DIGITAL,” “MPEG” to “MPEG,” and
“DTS” to “ON,” in “AUDIO SETUP”, sound will
come from your speakers but it will not have the
SURROUND effect.
• The TVS effects do not work when using the Fast
Play or Slow Play functions, even though you can
change the TVS modes.
2 Press SUR repeatedly to select
one of the TVS sounds.

select “NORMAL (INTERLACE)” using
the PROGRESSIVE button on the front
panel so that the player is set to normal
(interlace) format.
, If you set “LINE” to “RGB (COMPONENT
OFF)” in “SCREEN SETUP” (page 59), the
player outputs no component video signals.
There is no picture or the picture noise
appears when connected to the HDMI OUT
jack.
, Try the following: 1Turn the player off
