mechanical abuse, such as being twisted, kinked,
pinched, closed in a door, or walked upon. Pay
particular attention to plugs, wall outlets, and
the point where the cord exits the appliance. To
disconnect power from the mains, pull out the

Regional Code
This unit has a regional code printed on the rear of the unit. This unit can play only DVD discs labelled same
as the rear of the unit or “ALL”.
Getting Started
,,Note
yy Depending on the conditions of the recording
equipment or the CD-R/RW (or DVD±R/RW)
disc itself, some CD-R/RW (or DVD±R/RW) discs
cannot be played on the unit.
yy Do not use irregularly shaped CDs (e.g., heartshaped or octagonal). Doing so may result in
malfunctions.
yy Depending on the recording software & the
finalization, some recorded discs (CD-R/RW,
DVD±R/RW) may not be playable.
AVCHD (Advanced Video
Codec High Definition)
yy This player can playback AVCHD format discs.
These discs are normally recorded and used in
camcorders.
yy The AVCHD format is a high definition digital
video camera format.
yy The MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format is capable of
compressing images at higher efficiency than
the conventional image compressing format.
yy Some AVCHD discs use the “x.v.Color” format.
yy DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW and CD-R/RW discs
recorded using a personal computer or a DVD or
CD Recorder may not play if the disc is damaged
or dirty, or if there is dirt or condensation on the
Recorder’s lens.
yy This player can playback AVCHD discs using
“x.v.Color” format.
yy If you record a disc using a personal computer,
even if it is recorded in a compatible format,
there are cases in which it may not play because
of the settings of the application software used
to create the disc. (Check with the software
publisher for more detailed information.)
yy AVCHD format discs need to be finalized.
yy This player requires discs and recordings to meet
certain technical standards in order to achieve
optimal playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are
automatically set to these standards. There are
many different types of recordable disc formats
(including CD-R containing MP3 or WMA files)
and these require certain pre-existing conditions
to ensure compatible playback.
yy Customers should note that permission is
required in order to download MP3 / WMA files
and music from the Internet. Our company has
no right to grant such permission. Permission
should always be sought from the copyright
owner.
Compatibility Notes
yy Viewing high-definition content and upconverting standard DVD content may require a
HDMI-capable input or HDCP-capable DVI input
on your display device.
yy Some DVD discs may restrict the use of some
operation commands or features.
yy You can use a USB device that is used to store
some disc related information. The disc you are
using will control how long this information is
retained.
yy Some AVCHD format discs may not be played,
depending on the recording condition.
yy “x.v.Color” offers a wider colour range than
normal DVD camcorder discs.
System Requirements
For high definition video playback:
yy High definition display that has HDMI input jacks.
yy HDMI or HDCP capable DVI input on your display
device is required for some content (as specified
by disc authors).
yy For up-conversion of standard definition DVD, a
HDMI or HDCP capable DVI input on your display
device is required for copy-protected content.
For Dolby® Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD audio
playback:
yy An amplifier/receiver with a built-in (Dolby
Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD or DTS).
yy Main, centre, surround speakers and subwoofer
as necessary for chosen format.

yy If there’s a power failure while the player is on,
there is a chance that some data on the HDD will
be lost.
yy However, sometimes there will be no warning
signs of HDD failure.
yy If the HDD fails, playback of content will not
be possible. In this case, contact the LG service
center by following methods.
Web: http://lg.com
yy The manufacturer disclaims responsibility for loss
of data contained in internal HDD.
yy There are some capacities in HDD reserved for
the file system and timeshift.
Appendix
yy The HDD is very delicate. If used improperly or
in an unsuitable environment, it is possible that
the HDD will fail after a few years of use. Signs
of problems include playback unexpectedly
freezing and noticeable block noise (mosaic) in
the picture.
