List of Error Codes

The following is a list of the messages that BIOS can display. Most of them occur during POST. Some of them display information about a hardware device, e.g., the amount of memory installed. Others may indicate a problem with a device, such as the way it has been configured. Following the list are explanations of the messages and remedies for reported problems.

If your system displays any of the below error messages other that the ones marked with an asterisk (*), write down the message and contact Panasonic Technical Support ( page 42). If your system fails after you make changes in the Setup menus, reset the computer, enter Setup and install Setup defaults or correct the error.

About Regions Setting

<Only for CF-50A******/CF-50B******>

The regions setting can be changed for up to 5 times. After the fifth change is made, it will no longer be possible either to change the setting or to return to the original setting.

<Only for CF-50E******/CF-50G******>

The DVD-Video has a region code that is fixed according to the region where it is sold. In order to play a DVD-Video, the region code of the player software and of the drive must match that of the DVD-Video.

<Example>

For U.S.A. and Canada: “1”

For Europe: “2”

The region code is not set prior to the shipment of this drive. Therefore, operations will differ depending on the first DVD-

Video played.

In the case of a DVD-Video with a specific region code:

The drive will automatically be set with the same region code as the DVD-Video.

In the case of any other DVD-Video:

[Confirm Region] appears. Select region code and select [OK]. Play now begins.

([Confirm Region] may not be displayed for some DVD-Videos. To confirm the current region code and the number of settings remaining, right-click on the WinDVD screen and select [Setup] - [Region].)

CAUTION

The region code can be set a total of five times, including the initial setting. Proceed very carefully, because after the fourth change has been made, the region code set last is fixed and no further changes can be made.

The user must take responsibility for any trouble that results from illegally changing or altering the region code.

NOTE

[Confirm Region] will also be displayed if a DVD-Video with one region code is inserted into a drive for which another region code has already been set.
