Caring for Optical Discs
Handling of Discs:
Please hold the disc by gripping the rim or by placing the index finger in the
central hole. Never touch the signal surface, which is shiny. This applies to
both sides of double sided discs.
Cleaning of Discs:
Finger prints or stains on the surface of the disc may cause signal loss.
Depending on the degree of the stain, the reflected luminosity from the signal
surface may be weakened, resulting in degraded picture quality. Therefore,
please use a soft cloth and wipe in a radiating manner from the center of the
disc to the outer rims when cleaning the disc surface.
Labeling Side
Surface
Labels
If the surface of your disc is very dirty, please wipe the disc with a moist cloth,
followed by a dry soft cloth to remove all water stains.
Never use electrostatic prevention products or solutions which contain
benzene, thinner or any other vaporizing substances, as they may damage
the disc surface.
Tapes
Never add labels or adhesive tapes on the discs and be careful not to
scratch or damage the disc surface.
Storage of Discs:
To prevent discs from becoming bent or deformed, they should be vertically
kept in the disc storage case. To prevent damage, avoid leaving discs in your
car, where they may be subject to direct sunlight and high temperature.
Please thoroughly read the "Instruction Points for Attention" on the discs.
Cleaning the DVD Player:
The control panel and the case of the player will only require occasional wiping with a soft cloth. Areas with
stubborn stains can be cleaned with a soft cloth dipped in a neutral detergent. To prevent damaging the player,
never use vaporizing solutions.
Disc Accessories:
Do not use any disc accessory to improve the audio quality, disc protective solutions or lens cleaner. These
products may cause problems.

Connecting the DVD Player to your TV / Receiver
Determining the Video & Audio Connections You Will Use
The first step to using your new DVD Player is to make the cable connections that will allow you to see the video
and hear the audio on your TV and optional Stereo Receiver. Your DVD Player has multiple Video and Audio
outputs. Generally, you will only use one Video and one Audio output and any one time. The type of outputs you
use will be determined by the capabilities of your Television or receiver. It is recommended that you use the highest
quality output that your TV or receiver will support.
Television Connections (One Required)
In order to use your DVD Player, your TV must support at least one of the Video Input types shown below. To get
started, identify the best Video Connection shown below that your TV offers and proceed to that section. If you are
using your TV’s speakers for audio, rather than a separate receiver or amplifier, you will use the Stereo Audio In,
outlined in sections 1 and 2.

Receiver/Speaker Connections (Optional)
To enjoy the Dolby and/or DTS Digital Surround Sound most DVD movies are presented in, you’ll need a 5.1
Channel Sound System. Whether you choose an inexpensive, self-powered 5.1 Channel Speaker System, or a
more advanced setup with a Digital Receiver powering a set of High-Performance Speakers, your player provides
the outputs required. The 5.1 Channel Analog outputs can connect directly to a 5.1 Channel Speaker System (the
most economical method) or a Dolby-Ready Receiver. For the ultimate in Digital Audio, use the player’s Optical or
CoAxial Digital Audio outputs with a Digital Receiver powering high-performance Speakers.

Typical Connection - Connecting to a TV with Composite Video In and Stereo Audio In
If your TV has only a single Video Input jack, typically a yellow-colored plug, you will use the Composite Video output
of the DVD Player for the Video Connection. We’ll also assume your TV has Red and White Stereo Audio In
connectors. You will use these for the Audio Connection.

Connect the Power Cord to the DVD Player and AC Power Outlet.
Turn on the TV and DVD Player (power switch on back) and select the Video Input on your TV. On some models,
this may be called “Input 1” or “Aux In”. You should now see the DVD Player’s splash screen on your TV.

Component Video separates the Video Signal into three separate “components”, resulting in a higher
quality picture than S-Video or Standard Composite Video. In order to use Component Video, you
must use a TV equipped with Component Video Inputs. You’ll also need (3) Component Video Cables
(not included) and a Composite (included) or S-Video Cable used for setup only.

Parental Lock and Other Options
Exploring the CHILD and OTHERS Setup Pages
The CHILD and OTHERS Setup Pages contains many important options for your DVD player. The CHILD menu is
where you can set a password to control the Parental Lock and Reset functions, which let you limit the play of discs
beyond a rating you specify, and reset the settings and password to factory defaults, respectively. The OTHERS
menu contains the FACTORY SETTING option, as well as the MNCOLOR setting, which allows you to change the
color of the On-Screen Setup Menu.
For Help on Using the Setup Menu, see pg 29.
CHILD - LEVELS 1-8
The Parental Lock allows you to limit the use of your DVD Player to
only those DVD discs that do not exceed the rating you specify. When
the Parental Control is set, DVD discs that support this feature will play
only after the password has been entered. However, typically only discs
produced by major entertainment companies support Parental Control.
Discs not supporting this feature will be “immune” to Lock-Out.

When you attempt to change the Parental Control setting, you are

password. Choose a 4-Digit numeric password and write it down in
case you forget it. Key in the password and press ENTER.
After the password is set, press ENTER on the CHILD option. You can

new Progressive Scan mode.
NTSC is the standard TV system used in the USA, Canada, Japan
and many other countries, supporting 480 Lines at 60Hz. The PAL TV
system is used in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, among others,
and supports 576 Lines at 50Hz. P-SCAN, or Progressive Scan TVs
are able to scan a complete video frame on each pass, unlike normal
“interlaced” TVs that require two passes to scan each frame.

Quick Tips
Resetting to the Player’s Default Video Settings
Make sure to use caution when changing the SYSTEM and OUTPUT settings. If the value selected is not
compatible with your Television, you may no longer be able to see the screen. If this happens, follow the
procedures below to reset the player’s settings to default.
Ÿ Turn the DVD Player off using the power switch on the back of the unit.
Ÿ After a few seconds, power the player on and OPEN THE DISC TRAY.
Ÿ Enter one of the following codes on the remote control depending on your TV type:
NTSC (USA):
STOP - 2 - 0 - 0 - 2
PAL (Europe):
STOP - 2 - 0 - 0 - 3
Ÿ The player is now reset to COMPOSITE Video Out and the TV SYSTEM you specified.
ASPECT - 4:3 PS / 4:3 LB / 16:9 WS
You can setup your DVD Player to work with normal and wide screen televisions. If you are using a wide screen TV,
set this option to 16:9 WS to match the aspect ratio of your TV. When used with a normal TV (4:3 aspect ratio), the
4:3 PS setting results in the typical “Pan & Scan” display, where a movie is clipped on the sides to fit on the TV
screen. The 4:3 LB setting will enable the “Letterbox” format, where the movie is presented in wide screen format
with black lines at the top and bottom of the screen.
OUTPUT - COMPOSITE / S-VIDEO / YCbCr
Change this setting to match the type of video input jack you are using on your TV. *If you are using a Progressive
Scan TV, you must change this setting FIRST, before the SYSTEM setting described above.
Composite Video is the most common video connection type and is supported on most TVs. S-Video is a higher
quality video signal that is separated into brightness and color channels. YCbCr, or COMPONENT video is used for
TVs, Computer Monitors and Projectors that support three video inputs, one for a color channel (Yellow, Blue, Red).
This setting is also used for Progressive Scan TVs.
FORMAT - AUTO / INTERLACED / PROGRESSIVE
Set the FORMAT according to the type of TV, Monitor or Projector you’re using. Most Televisions use INTERLACED
scanning, which “draws” every other horizontal scan line with each pass. PROGRESSIVE displays however, are able
to scan ALL lines (odd and even) in a single pass, resulting in a more “film-like” quality picture.
Normally, this setting should be set to AUTO, where the player will detect the scanning method used by your TV,
Monitor or Projector and adjust its output accordingly.

Audio Setup Options
ANALOG - 5.1CH / 2CH
The ANALOG setting controls the DVD Player’s Analog Audio Outputs.
These are the Stereo Audio and 5.1 Channel Outputs covered on pages
11, 13 & 15. Select 5.1CH if you are using the 5.1 Channel outputs to
connect to a Dolby-Ready Receiver or Speaker System. If you are
using a TV for audio or a stereo system with only two channel inputs,
this setting should be switched to 2CH, allowing you to hear all
channels of Dolby/DTS 5.1 soundtracks through two speakers.
DIGITAL - DOLBY / DTS / LPCM
Most DVDs are produced with Dolby or DTS 5.1 Channel soundtracks.
So, normally this setting should be at the default of DOLBY/DTS.
However, this setting can be set to LPCM to support DVDs featuring
this type of audio format. LPCM, or Linear Pulse Code Modulation, is a
stereo digital audio format typically used only with CD audio.

D.R.C - STANDARD / MAXIMUM / TV MODE
Sometimes called “midnight mode”, D.R.C (Dynamic Range Compression) aims to make watching a movie at low
volumes more enjoyable by boosting the quieter sounds while suppressing the louder sounds. This reduction in the
difference between the low and high audio levels is known as “compression”. You can adjust the level of this
compression in three levels: MAXIMUM - Highest compression, STANDARD - Normal compression, and TV MODE Optimized for smaller speakers.
BASS - OFF / SMALL / LARGE
You can tailor the bass response of your Sub-Woofer different room sizes with the BASS setting. The options are:
OFF - No additional processing of the sub-woofer signal, SMALL - Adjusts the sub-woofer output for small rooms,
and LARGE - Adjusts the sub-woofer output for large rooms.

the back power switch, wait for a few seconds, then turn the unit back on.
Ÿ There must be a pause between powering the unit down and back on of a few seconds.
A Specific Disc Does Not Play
Ÿ The disc may be dirty. Try cleaning the disc.
Ÿ Make sure the disc is not in upside-down
Ÿ The region code of the disc may not match that of the player. In this case, the disc cannot be used.
The Remote Control Does Not Function
Ÿ
Ÿ
Ÿ
Ÿ
Make sure you’re aiming the remote directly at the player’s remote sensor, located in the front display.
Make sure there are no obstacles between the remote and the player.
The batteries may be drained. Try changing the batteries in the remote.
You could be using the remote too far away. Try within 4 meters of the player.
There is No Picture on the TV Screen
Ÿ
Ÿ
Ÿ
Ÿ
Make sure the connections from the player to the TV are secure.
Verify that the TV’s channel is set to match the video input you’re using. Refer to the TV’s documentation.
On most TVs the “Aux In”, “Video In” or “A/V In” channel should match the video input connector.
If you’re using the S-Video connector, the TV may have a separate input channel for this type.
The Picture Appears Stretched or Squeezed
Ÿ The Video Aspect Ratio may be set wrong for your Television type.
Ÿ Enter the Setup Menu and select the Video Menu. Try changing the ASPECT setting to 4:3 PS (Pan&Scan) if
you are using a standard TV, or 16:9 WS if your TV is a Wide-Screen type.
The Disc Doesn’t Eject

eject the disc.
No Sound from TV or Speakers
Ÿ If the DTS soundtrack is enabled in the DVD Disc Menu, but you are using Stereo Analog audio, the sound will
not work. Try switching the soundtrack to Dolby/DTS 5.1 or PCM mode in the Disc Menu.
Ÿ If you are using a Digital Receiver, check the Dolby/DTS setting in the player’s Setup Menu (pg 32).
Ÿ Make sure the audio cables connecting the DVD player to your TV or receiver are secure.
Ÿ The movie is paused. There is no sound during Pause or Search modes.
Sound From Only Left/Right Front Speakers of 5.1 Channel System
Ÿ If you’re using the 5.1 Channel Analog Outputs, check the ANALOG setting in the DVD Player’s Setup Menu (pg
32). This setting should be set to 5.1CH.
Ÿ Use the MENU key to enter the disc’s menu and check that the Audio Setup is set to Dolby/DTS 5.1 Audio.
Ÿ Make sure the DIGITAL setting is on DOLBY/DTS in the Player Setup Menu. (See pg 32)
