Connections and Setup
Things to Consider Before You Connect
Protect Against Power Surges
•
Connect all components before you plug any of their power cords into the wall outlet.
•
Turn off the TV and/or components before you connect or disconnect any cables.
•
Make sure all antennas and cables are properly grounded. Refer to the Important Safeguards sheet
packed with your DVD player.
Protect Components from Overheating
•
Don’t block ventilation holes on any of the components. Arrange the components so that air can
circulate freely.
•
Don’t stack components.
•
When you place components in a stand, make sure you allow adequate ventilation.
•
If you connect an audio receiver or amplifier, place it on the top shelf so the heated air from it won’t flow
around other components.
Position Cables Properly to Avoid Audio Interference
•
Insert each cable firmly into the designated jack.
•
If you place components above the TV, route all cables down the side of the back of the TV instead of
straight down the middle of the back of the TV.
•
If your antenna uses 300-ohm twin lead cables, do not coil the cables. Also, keep the twin lead cables
away from audio/video cables.
Connection Pictures
Audio/video cables are usually bundled together. For better visibility, the connection pictures in this book
show each cable separately (audio left, audio right, and video).
Note: The illustrations in this book are representational, and in some instances may not exactly match the
item represented.
Types of Discs Your DVD Player will Play
•
DVD video discs – DVD video discs contain high quality picture and sound content.
•
Audio discs – Audio CDs contain musical or sound content only.
•
Video CDs – Like DVD discs, VCDs contain picture and sound content. VCDs hold less content that
DVD discs.
•
CD-R (MP3 files) – CD-R discs with MP3 files recorded or downloaded onto them.

Dolby Digital® and DTS®
Both Dolby Digital and DTS are audio formats used to record 5.1-channel audio signals onto the digital track
of film (while the film is being made). Both of these formats provide up to six separate channels: left, right,
center, left rear, right rear, and common subwoofer.
The disc will play 5.1-channel sound only if you’ve connected a DTS or Dolby Digital receiver or decoder and if
the original movie the disc was recorded from was encoded in the Dolby Digital or DTS format.
Please Read This Before Using the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT Jack!
This player’s digital output jack is designed for a connection to a Dolby Digital or DTS receiver or decoder.
Older digital equipment may not be compatible with the Dolby Digital bitstream. Such a connection can
create a high level of noise that may be harmful to your ears, and could damage headphones or speakers.
It is important to choose the correct Digital Output setting in the DVD Player’s Sound menu, especially when
you use the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack. For more information, see chapter 5.

diagram on the remote.
3.

Important Battery Information
insert batteries
•
If you’re not going to use the remote for a month or more, be sure to remove
the batteries because they can leak and cause damage.
•
Dispose of batteries in the proper manner, according to federal, state, and
local regulations.
•
Any battery may leak electrolyte if mixed with a different battery type, if
inserted incorrectly, if all batteries are not replaced at the same time, if
disposed of in fire, or if an attempt is made to charge a battery not intended
to be recharged.
•
Discard leaky batteries immediately. Leaking batteries can cause skin burns or
other personal injury.
Point the Remote in the Right Direction
When you want the remote to operate the DVD Player, point the remote at the
DVD Player, not the TV. The remote has to be pointed in the correct direction
and toward the correct component in order for the remote control’s signal to

How to Find Your TV’s Video Input Channel
You need to tune your TV to the Video Input Channel (or S-Video Channel if you connected the S-Video
cable to your TV and to your DVD Player) to see the DVD Player’s menu and to see the content that’s on a

button on the remote.
•
If you have another brand, consult your TV’s Owner’s Manual.
If those options don’t work, try one of the following options.
•
Press a button on the remote (see table below).
•
Select it from the TV’s menu system.
•
Tune directly to the DVD input channel by pressing a specific number (see table below).
•
Go through all the channels in the channel list by pressing the channel up/down buttons on the TV.

Regional Coding
Both the DVD player and the discs are coded by region. These regional codes must match in order for the disc
to play. If the codes don’t match, the disc won’t play. This player’s code is region 1.
Using Different Menus
Each disc is programmed with different features. There are three separate ways to access features:
•
The Disc menu – The Disc menu is part of each disc and is separate from the DVD player’s menu. The
contents of each disc menu varies according to how the disc was authored and what features are included.
The disc menu is turned on and off (while the disc is playing) with the MENU button on the remote.
•
The DVD player menu – The DVD player’s menu system is accessed only when a disc isn’t playing. Press
MENU on the remote to bring up the DVD player menu.
Remember that a feature will only work if the disc was programmed with that feature. For example, if you
have subtitles turned on, the subtitles will only appear if the disc was created with subtitles. If a menu item is
“grayed out” it means that item isn’t available.
•
Information Banners – Banners are a type of information display that appear across the top of the screen
during playback. Information banners are activated by pressing the INFO button on the remote.
Loading and Playing Discs
Your DVD player plays DVD discs and audio CD discs. Before you load a disc, make sure that it is compatible
with the player. The following discs CANNOT be used with this player:
•
Laserdiscs
•
CD-I, CD-ROM (computer-only discs), CD-RW, DVD-ROM
•
Discs recorded using other broadcast standards (i.e. PAL or SECAM)
•
CD-G discs play audio only, not graphics

Using a Disc Menu
A disc is capable of having an on-screen menu that is separate from the DVD player’s menu system and onscreen information banners. The disc menu might only contain a list of the titles and chapters, or it may allow
you to change features such as language and playback settings.
Note: “Default settings” are the settings that the player will default to each time it is turned on.
Any settings you change with the disc menu only temporarily override the default settings.
Use the Setup Menu of the DVD player to change the default settings (See chapter 5).
Although the content and operation of disc menus varies from disc to disc, the following example will give you
an idea of what to expect.
1.

Many discs skip the disc
menu and start playing
automatically. To access

What is a Video CD?
Like DVD video discs, Video CDs contain picture and sound content. Video CDs (VCDs) are encoded in a
different format. VCDs don’t hold as much information as DVD discs and the picture quality is not as high.
VCDs can have more than one title. Each title is divided into tracks (similar to chapters on a DVD disc).
The Video CD Disc Menu
A Video CD disc is capable of having an on-screen menu that is separate from the DVD player’s menu system
and on-screen information banners. If the disc has a menu, the menu will appear after the disc is loaded into
the player.
The content and operation of disc menus varies from disc to disc. Check the instructions that accompany the
Video CD for more information on how to use the playback control functions for that specific disc.
If a disc menu appears:
1.
Use the number buttons on the remote to select a track (similar to a chapter).
2.
Press OK on the remote to begin playback of the selected track.
3.

The Ratings feature is a rating limit system, like movie ratings. It works with DVD discs that have been

This option lets you determine how your player will react to discs that contain movies that are rated (in the
U.S.A., the Motion Pictures Association of America rates movies as G, PG, PG-13, etc.).
You decide which ratings require a password and which ones don’t. This system ranks the ratings 1 through 8
in order to accommodate different countries’ ratings systems (1 is considered a movie title with the least
offensive material).
In order for the Ratings feature to work, the disc must be encoded with rating information and the Password
mode must be turned on.
