Regional Coding

DVD players and discs are designed with regional restrictions which dictate the regions in which a disc can be played. If the region number

on the disc you want to play does not match the region number of your DVD player, you will not be able to play the disc. The message “WRONG REGION” will appear in the on-screen display.

The region code of this player is indicated on the rear and on the external packaging.

Remote Control

Be sure to follow correct polarity when installing the batteries as indicated in the battery compartment. Reversed batteries may cause damage to the device.

Use only the size and type of batteries specified.

Do not mix different types of batteries (e.g. Alkaline and Carbonzinc) or old batteries with new ones.

If you will not use the remote for an extended period of time, remove the batteries to avoid possible damage from battery leakage and corrosion.
