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.
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 a commercially available
cleaning disc or disc/lens cleaner (wet or
spray type). These may cause the
apparatus to 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. 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.

DVD-Rs or CD-Rs/CD-RWs
Some DVD+RWs/DVD+Rs, DVD-RWs/DVDRs, or CD-Rs/CD-RWs cannot be played on this

condition of the disc, or the characteristics of the
recording device and authoring software.

finalized. For more information, refer to the
operating instructions for the recording device.
Note that some playback functions may not work
with some DVD+RWs/DVD+Rs, even if they
have been correctly finalized. In this case, view
the disc by normal playback. Also some DATA
CDs/DATA DVDs created in Packet Write
format cannot be played.

conform to the CD standard and may not be
playable by this product.
• Note on DualDiscs

LFE (Low Frequency

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.
If the player is set up to output the signal from
the DIGITAL OUT (COAXIAL) jack, the
surround effect will only be heard when
“DOLBY DIGITAL” is set to “D-PCM” and
“MPEG” is set to “PCM” in “AUDIO
SETUP” (page 57).

Notes
• If “DTS” in “AUDIO SETUP” is set to “OFF,”
the DTS track selection option will not appear on
the screen even if the disc contains DTS tracks
(page 57).

Glossary
Album (page 41, 43)
A unit in which to store JPEG image files or
MP3 audio tracks on a DATA CD/DATA
DVD. (“Album” is an exclusive definition for
this player.)
Chapter
Sections of a picture or a music feature that
are smaller than titles. A title is composed of
several chapters. Depending on the disc, no
chapters may be recorded.
Dolby Digital (page 16, 57)
Digital audio compression technology
developed by Dolby Laboratories. This
technology conforms to multi-channel
surround sound. The rear channel is stereo
and there is a discrete subwoofer channel in
this format. Dolby Digital provides the same
discrete channels of high quality digital audio
found in “Dolby Digital” theatre surround
sound systems. 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.
Digital audio compression technology that
Digital Theater Systems, Inc. developed. This
technology conforms to multi-channel
surround sound. The rear channel is stereo
and there is a discrete subwoofer channel in
this format. DTS provides the same 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.
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 singlesided 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 double-sided DVD is
9.4 GB, and double-layer and double-sided
DVD is 17 GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format, a
worldwide standard 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 realistic audio
presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions
such as the multi-angle, multilingual, and
Parental Control functions are provided with
the DVD.
DVD-RW (page 5)
A DVD-RW is a recordable and rewritable
disc that is the same size as a DVD VIDEO.
The DVD-RW has two different modes: VR
mode and Video mode. DVD-RWs created in
Video mode have the same format as a DVD
VIDEO, while discs created in VR (Video
Recording) mode allow the contents to be
programmed or edited.
DVD+RW (page 5)
A DVD+RW (plus RW) is a recordable and
rewritable disc. DVD+RWs use a recording
format that is comparable to the DVD VIDEO
format.
Additional Information
DTS (page 16, 57)
DVD VIDEO (page 5)
File (page 41, 44)
A JPEG image recorded on a DATA CD/
