Precautions

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits set out in the EMC Directive using a connection cable shorter than 3 meters.

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 install this player in a confined space, such as a bookshelf or similar unit.

• 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 place the player outdoors, in vehicles, on ships, or on other vessels.

• 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.

• Do not install the player in an inclined position. It is designed to be operated in a horizontal position only.

• Do not place metal objects in front of the front panel. It may limit reception of radio waves.

• Do not place the player in a place where medical equipment is in use. It may cause a malfunction of medical instruments.

• If you use a pacemaker or other medical device, consult your physician or the manufacturer of your medical device before using the wireless

LAN function.

• Do not place heavy or unstable objects on the player.

• Do not place any objects other than discs on the disc tray. Doing so may cause damage to the player or the object.

• Take out any discs when you move the player. If you don’t, the disc may be damaged.

• Disconnect the AC power cord and all other cables from the player when you move the player.

On power sources

• The player is not disconnected from the AC power source as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if the player itself has been turned off.

• Disconnect the player from the wall outlet if you are not going to use the player for a long time. To disconnect the AC power cord, grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord.

• Observe following points to prevent the AC power cord being damaged. Do not use the AC power cord if it is damaged, as doing so may result in an electric shock or fire.

– Do not pinch the AC power cord between the player and wall, shelf, etc.

– Do not put anything heavy on the AC power cord or pull on the AC power cord itself.

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, your ears and the speakers may be damaged when a peak level section is played.

On cleaning

Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a soft cloth. 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 cleaning discs or disc/lens cleaners

(including wet or spray types). These may cause the apparatus to malfunction.

On replacement of parts

In the events that this player is repaired, repaired parts may be collected for reuse or recycling purposes.

On connecting to the HDMI OUT jack

Observe the following as improper handling may damage the HDMI OUT jack and the connector.

• Carefully align the HDMI OUT jack on the rear of the player and the HDMI connector by checking their shapes. Make sure the connector is not upside down or tilted.

• Be sure to disconnect the HDMI cable when moving the player.

• Hold the HDMI connector straight when connecting or disconnecting the HDMI cable. Do not twist or force the HDMI connector into the

HDMI OUT jack.

On watching 3D video images

Some people may experience discomfort (such as eye strain, fatigue, or nausea) while watching 3D video images. Sony recommends that all viewers take regular breaks while watching 3D video images. The length and frequency of necessary breaks will vary from person to person. You must decide what works best. If you experience any discomfort, you should stop watching the 3D video images until the discomfort ends; consult a doctor if you believe necessary. You should also review (i) the instruction manual and/or the caution message of any other device used with, or Blu-ray Disc contents played with this product and (ii) our website (http://esupport.sony.com/) for the latest information. The vision of young children

(especially those under six years old) is still under development. Consult your doctor (such as a pediatrician or eye doctor) before allowing young children to watch 3D video images.

Adults should supervise young children to ensure they follow the recommendations listed above.

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.

About wireless LAN security

Since communication via the wireless LAN function is established by radio waves, the wireless signal may be susceptible to interception. To protect wireless communication, this player supports various security functions. Be sure to correctly configure the security settings in accordance with your network environment.

No Security

Although you can easily make settings, anyone can intercept wireless communication or intrude into your wireless network, even without any sophisticated tools. Keep in mind that there is a risk of unauthorized access or interception of data.

WEP

WEP applies security to communications to prevent outsiders from intercepting communications or intruding into your wireless network. WEP is a legacy security technology that enables older devices, which do not support TKIP/AES, to be connected.

WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK (TKIP)

TKIP is a security technology developed to correct for the deficiencies of WEP. TKIP assures a higher security level than WEP.

WPA-PSK (AES), WPA2-PSK (AES)

AES is a security technology that uses an advanced security method that is distinct from WEP and TKIP.

AES assures a higher security level than

WEP or TKIP.
