On cleaning
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, grasp the plug itself; never pull
the cord (mains lead).
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
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 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.
• 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.
On adjusting volume
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.

Notes on playing DTS sound tracks on a CD
• When playing DTS-encoded CDs,
excessive noise will be heard from the
analog stereo jacks. To avoid possible
damage to the audio system, the consumer
should take proper precautions when the
analog stereo jacks of the player are
connected to an amplification system. To
enjoy DTS Digital Surround™ playback, an
external 5.1-channel decoder system must
be connected to the digital jack of the
player.
• Set the sound to “STEREO” using the
button when you play DTS sound tracks on
a CD (page 46).
• Do not play DTS sound tracks without first
connecting the player to an audio
component having a built-in DTS decoder.
The player outputs the DTS signal via the
DIGITAL OUT (COAXIAL or OPTICAL)
jack even if “DTS” in “AUDIO SETUP” is
set to “OFF” in the Setup Display (page 66),
and may affect your ears or cause your
speakers to be damaged.

When you insert a DATA CD and press H,
the numbered tracks are played sequentially,

GB, a single-layer and double-sided 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.
Index (CD)/Video Index (VIDEO CD) (page
10)
A number that divides a track into sections to
easily locate the point you want on a CD or
VIDEO CD. Depending on the disc, no index
may be recorded.
MPEG audio (page 24, 66)
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.
Scene (page 10)
On a VIDEO CD with PBC (playback
control) functions, the menu screens, moving
pictures and still pictures are divided into
sections called “scenes.”
Title (page 10)
The longest section of a picture or music
feature on a DVD, movie, etc., in video
software, or the entire album in audio
software.
Track (page 10)
