EXCEPTION: A product that is meant for uninterrupted service and, that for some specific reason, such as the possibility of the loss of an authorization code for a CATV converter, is not intended to be unplugged by the user for cleaning or any other purpose, may exclude the reference to unplugging the appliance in the cleaning description otherwise required in item 5.

6.Attachments - Do not use attachments not recommended by the product manufacturer as they may cause hazards.

7.Water and MoistureDo not use this product near water, for example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, and the like.

8.Accessories - Do not place this product on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The product may fall, causing serious injury to a child or adult, and serious damage to the appliance. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer, or sold with the product. Any mounting of the appliance should follow the

manufacturer's instructions and should use a mounting accessory

recommended by the manufacturer. An appliance and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn.

9.Ventilation - Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect it from overheating, and these openings must not be blocked or covered. The openings should never be blocked by placing the product on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface.

Maintenance

SERVICING

Please refer to relevant topics on “Troubleshooting” on pages 71-74before returning the product.

If this unit becomes inoperative, do not try to correct the problem by yourself. There are no userserviceable parts inside. Turn off, unplug the power plug and please call our help line mentioned on the front page to locate an Authorized Service Center.

CLEANING THE CABINET

Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use a solution containing alcohol, spirits, ammonia or abrasive.

CLEANING DISCS

When a disc becomes dirty, clean it with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the center to out. Do not wipe in a circular motion.

Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners, detergent, abrasive cleaning agents or antistatic spray intended for analogue records.

CLEANING THE DISC LENS

If this unit still does not perform properly although you refer to the relevant sections and to “Troubleshooting” in this Owner’s Manual, the laser optical pickup unit may be dirty. Consult your dealer or an Authorized Service Center for inspection and cleaning of the laser optical pickup unit.

DISC HANDLING

Handle the discs so that fingerprints and dust do not adhere to the surfaces of the discs.

Always store the disc in its protective case when it is not used.

IR SIGNAL CHECK

If the remote control does not work properly, you can test if the remote control sends out the infrared signal with AM radio or a digital camera (including built-incamera of cellular phone). It will help to define the cause of malfunction.

With an AM radio:

Tune a AM radio to a band with no broadcasting. Press a button on remote control toward the radio. Sound will be fluttering when you press any key and the radio receives the signal. This means the remote control unit is working.

With a digital camera (including built-incamera of cellular phone):

Direct a digital camera to remote control, press and hold a button on remote control. If infrared light appears through digital camera, the remote is working.

Dolby Digital Recording

“Dolby® Digital Recording enables consumers to recordhigh-qualityvideo with stereo sound on recordable DVD discs. The technology, when utilized instead of PCM recording, also saves recordable disc space, allowing for higher video resolution or extended recording time on each DVD. DVDs created using Dolby Digital Recording will play back on allDVD-Videoplayers.”

Note: This is true when the players are compatible with actual recordable DVD discs.

Color systems

DVDs are recorded in different color systems throughout the world. The most common color system is NTSC (which

is used primarily in the United States and Canada).

This unit uses NTSC, so DVDs you play must be recorded in the NTSC system. You cannot play DVDs recorded in other color system .

Region codes

This unit has been designed to play DVD discs with Region One (1). DVDs must be labeled for ALL regions or for Region 1 in order to play on the unit. You cannot play DVDs that are labeled for other regions. Look for the symbols on the right on

your DVDs. If these region symbols do not appear on your DVD, you cannot play the DVD in this unit.

The number inside the globe refers to region of the world. A DVD labeled for a specific region can only play on the unit with the same region code.

PBC (Playback Control) for Video CD

This unit conforms to ver.1.1 and ver. 2.0 of Video CD standard with PBC function.

Ver.1.1 (without PBC function): You can enjoy playback picture as well as music CD.

Ver.2.0 (with PBC function): While using a Video CD with PBC function, “PBC” appears on the screen.

NOTE: When playing Video CDs with PBC function, some operations (e.g., track search and repeat tracks) cannot be performed. Cancel PBC function temporarily to perform those operations (refer to page 70).

You can play interactive software using menu screens. Refer to instructions in the Video CD.
