Precautions
On safety
• Caution – The use of optical instruments with
this product will increase eye hazard.
• 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 that might block the ventilation holes on the
bottom.
• 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 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.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your player, please consult your nearest Sony
dealer.
On cleaning discs
Do not use a commercially available cleaning disc.
It may cause a malfunction.
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. Projection televisions
are especially susceptible to this.
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.

Digital audio compression technology
developed by Dolby Laboratories. This
technology conforms to 5.1-channel
surround sound. The rear channel is stereo
and there is a discrete subwoofer channel in
this format. Dolby Digital provides the same
5.1 discrete channels of high quality digital
audio found in Dolby Digital cinema audio
systems. Good channel separation is realized
because all of the channel data are recorded
discretely and little deterioration is realized
because all channel data processing is digital.
Dolby Surround (Pro Logic) (page 30)
Audio signal processing technology that
Dolby Laboratories developed for surround
sound. When the input signal contains a
surround component, the Pro Logic process
outputs the front, centre and rear signals. The
rear channel is monaural.
DTS (page 26, 89)
Digital audio compression technology that
Digital Theater Systems, Inc. developed.
This technology conforms to 5.1-channel
surround sound. The rear channel is stereo
and there is a discrete subwoofer channel in
this format. DTS provides the same 5.1
discrete channels of high quality digital
audio.
Good channel separation is realized because
all of the channel data is recorded discretely
and little deterioration is realized because all
channel data processing is digital.
DVD VIDEO (page 6)
DVD-RW (page 6)
A DVD-RW is a recordable and rewritable
disc with the same size as the DVD VIDEO.
The DVD-RW can be recorded in two
different modes: VR mode and Video mode.
VR (Video Recording) mode enables various
programming and editing functions, some of
Index (SACD/CD)/Video Index (VIDEO CD)
(page 9)
A number that divides a track into sections to
easily locate the point you want on an SACD/
CD or VIDEO CD. Depending on the disc, no
index may be recorded.
MPEG audio (page 26, 89)
International standard coding system used to
compress audio digital signals authorized by
ISO/IEC. MPEG 1 conforms to up to 2channel stereo. MPEG 2, used on DVDs,
conforms to up to 7.1-channel surround.
Parental Control (page 74)
A function of the DVD used to limit playback
of the disc according to the age of the user
and the limitation level in each country. The
limitation varies from disc to disc; when it is
activated, or playback is completely
prohibited, violent scenes are skipped or
replaced with other scenes, etc.
Region Code (page 6)
This system is used to protect the copyrights.
A region number is allocated on each DVD
player or DVD disc according to the sales
region. Each region code is shown on the
player as well as on the disc packaging. The
player can play the discs that match its region
code. The player can also play discs with the
ALL mark. Even when the region code is not
shown on the DVD, the region limit may still
be activated.
Additional Information
A disc that contains up to 8 hours of moving
pictures even though its diameter is the same
as a CD.
The data capacity of a single-layer and
single-sided DVD is 4.7 GB (Giga Byte),
which is 7 times that of a CD. The data
capacity of a double-layer and single-sided
DVD is 8.5 GB, a single-layer and doublesided DVD is 9.4 GB, and double-layer and
double-sided DVD is 17GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format,
one of the worldwide standards of digital
compression technology. The picture data is
compressed to about 1/40 (average) of its
original size. The DVD also uses a variable
rate coding technology that changes the data
to be allocated according to the status of the
picture. Audio information is recorded in a
multi-channel format, such as Dolby Digital,
allowing you to enjoy a more real audio
presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions
such as the multi-angle, multilingual, and
Parental Control functions are provided with
the DVD.
which are limited in the case of Video mode.
Video mode complies with DVD VIDEO
format and is compatible with DVD players
while a DVD-RW recorded in VR mode can
only be played on DVD-RW compliant
players. The “DVD-RW” appears in this
manual, or the on-screen display refers to
DVD-RWs in VR mode.

Scene (page 9)
On a VIDEO CD with PBC (playback
control) functions, the menu screens, moving
pictures and still pictures are divided into
sections called “scenes.”
• Super Audio CD + CD (Hybrid disc)
This disc consists of an HD layer and a CD
layer. Also, as the dual layers are on one
side only, you do not have to turn the disc
over during playback. You can play the CD
layer using a conventional CD player.
Super Audio CD (SACD) (page 6)
An SACD disc can reproduce sounds that are
extremely faithful to the original sound by
use of DSD (Direct Stream Digital)
technology. This technology utilizes a
sampling frequency of 2.8224 MHz, which is
64 times that of a conventional CD, and 1-bit
quantization that enables the disc to hold 4
times the amount of information that a
standard PCM format CD can hold. SACDs
are divided into the following types.
• Super Audio CD (single layer disc)
This disc consists of a single HD layer*.
* High density signal layer for the Super
Audio CD
HD (high density) layer
• Super Audio CD (dual layer disc)
This disc consists of dual HD layers and is
capable of extended play over long periods.
Also, as the dual layer disc consists of dual
HD layers on one side only, you do not have
to turn the disc over during playback.

• 2 channel + Multi-channel Super Audio CD
This disc consists of the 2 channel playback
area and the multi-channel playback area.

Technology from Sony developed to produce
surround sound for home use using just a
stereo TV. Designed to work with the sound
characteristics of your TV, this technology
brings the excitement of surround sound to
your home using nothing more than your
stereo TV’s internal speakers. Furthermore,
various TVS modes are available. For
example, “TVS WIDE” uses just two
speakers to create a virtual sound
environment that makes you feel like you are
surrounded by multiple speakers.
