Precautions

For British models

Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of this unit should be performed only by qualified service personnel.

IMPORTANT

1. Region Numbers

The DVD standard uses region numbers to control how discs can be played around the world, the world being divided into six regions. This unit will only play DVD discs that match its region number, which can be found on its rear panel (e.g., 1 ).

The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:

Blue: Neutral Brown: Live

As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this apparatus may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:

The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black.

The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red.

2. About this Manual

This manual explains how to use all of this unit’s functions. Although the DVD standard offers many special features, not all discs use them all, so depending on the disc being played, this unit may not respond to certain functions. See the disc’s sleeve notes for supported features.

When you attempt to use a DVD feature that is not available, this logo may appear onscreen, indicating that the feature is not supported by the current disc or this unit.

3. Recording Copyright

Unless it’s for personal use only, recording copyrighted material is illegal without the permission of the copyright holder.

IMPORTANT

The plug is fitted with an appropriate fuse. If the fuse needs to be replaced, the replacement fuse must approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362 and have the same ampere rating as that indicated on the plug. Check for the ASTA mark or the BSI mark on the body of the fuse.

IF THE FITTED MOULDED PLUG IS UNSUITABLE FOR THE SOCKET OUTLET IN YOUR HOME THEN THE FUSE SHOULD BE REMOVED AND THE PLUG CUT OFF AND DISPOSED OF SAFELY. THERE IS A DANGER OF SEVERE ELECTRICAL SHOCK IF THE CUT OFF PLUG IS INSERTED INTO ANY 13 AMPERE SOCKET.

If in any doubt, consult a qualified electrician.

WARNING

BEFORE PLUGGING IN THE UNIT FOR THE FIRST TIME, READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY.

AC outlet voltages vary from country to country. Make sure that the voltage in your area meets the voltage requirements printed on this unit’s rear panel (e.g., AC 230–240 V, 50 Hz).

Setting the [STANDBY/ON] switch to STANDBY does not fully shutdown the DV-S155X. If you do not intend to use the DV-S155X for an extended period, remove the power cord from the AC outlet.

5.Never Touch this Unit with Wet Hands

Never handle this unit or its power cord while your hands are wet or damp. If water or any other liquid gets inside this unit, have it checked by your Onkyo dealer.

6.Installing this Unit

Install this unit in a well-ventilated location. Ensure that there’s adequate ventilation all around this unit, especially if it’s installed in an audio rack. If the ventilation is inadequate, the unit may overheat, leading to malfunction.

Do not expose this unit to direct sunlight or heat sources, because its internal temperature may rise, shortening the life of the optical pickup.

Avoid damp and dusty places, and places subject to vibrations from loudspeakers. Never put the unit on top of, or directly above a loudspeaker.

3

DV-S155X-En.book Page 4 Saturday, July 24,2004 2:20 PM

Precautions—Continued

Install this unit horizontally. Never use it on its side or on a sloping surface, because it may cause a malfunction.

If you install this unit near a TV, radio, or VCR, the picture and sound quality may be affected. If this occurs, move this unit away from the TV, radio, or VCR.

7. Care

Occasionally, you should dust this unit all over with a soft cloth. For stubborn stains, use a soft cloth dampened with a weak solution of mild detergent and water. Dry the unit immediately afterwards with a clean cloth. Do not use abrasive cloths, thinners, alcohol, or other chemical solvents, because they may damage the finish or remove the panel lettering.

8. Handling Notes

If you need to transport this unit, use the original packaging to pack it how it was when you originally bought it.

Do not use volatile liquids, such as insect sprays, near this unit. Do not leave rubber or plastic items on this unit for a long time, because they may leave marks on the case.

This unit’s top and rear panels may get warm after prolonged use. This is normal.

When you’ve finished using this unit, remove all discs and turn off the power.

If you do not use this unit for a long time, it may not work properly the next time you turn it on, so be sure to use it occasionally.

9. To Obtain a Clear Picture

This unit is a high-tech, precision device. If the lens on the optical pickup, or the disc drive mechanism becomes dirty or worn, the picture quality may be affected. To maintain the best picture quality, we recommend regular inspection and maintenance (cleaning or worn part replacement) every 1,000 hours of use depending on the operating environment. Contact your Onkyo dealer for details.

10. Moisture Condensation

Moisture condensation may damage this unit.

Read the following carefully:

When you take a glass containing a cold drink outside on a summer’s day, drops of water, called condensation, form on the outside of the glass.

Similarly, moisture may condense on the lens of the optical pickup, one of the most important parts inside this unit.

Moisture condensation can occur in the following situations:

The unit is moved from a cold place to a warm place.

A heater is turned on, or cold air from an air conditioner is hitting the unit.

In the summer, when this unit is moved from an air conditioned room to a hot and humid place.

The unit is used in a humid place.

Do not use this unit when there’s the possibility of moisture condensation occurring. Doing so may damage your discs and certain parts inside this unit.

If condensation does occur, remove all discs and leave this unit turned on for two to three hours. By this time, the unit will have warmed up and any condensation will have evaporated. To reduce the risk of condensation, keep this unit connected to a wall outlet.

This unit contains a semiconductor laser system and is classified as a “CLASS 1 LASER PRODUCT”. So, to use this model properly, read this Instruction Manual carefully. In case of any trouble, please contact the store where you purchased the unit.

DV-S155X

Point the remote controller toward the remote control sensor.

Place the unit away from strong light, such as direct sunlight or inverted fluorescent light, which can prevent proper operation of the remote controller.

Using another remote controller of the same type in the same room or using the unit near equipment that uses infrared rays may cause operational interference.

Do not put any object (such as a book) on the remote controller. The buttons of the remote controller may be pressed by mistake, which drains the batteries.

Make sure the audio rack doors do not have colored glass. Placing the unit behind such doors may prevent proper remote controller operation.

If there is an obstacle between the remote controller and the remote control sensor, the remote controller will not operate.

Connections

Before Making Any Connections

Read the manuals supplied with your AV components.

Don’t connect the power cord until you’ve completed and double-checked all audio and video connections.

Optical Digital Inputs

The DV-S155X’s optical digital inputs have shutter-type covers that open when an optical plug is inserted and close when it’s removed. Push plugs in all the way.

Caution: To prevent shutter damage, hold the optical plug straight when inserting and removing.

RCA AV Connection Color Coding

RCA-type AV connections are usually color coded: red, white, and yellow. Use red plugs to connect right-channel audio inputs and outputs (typically labeled “R”). Use white plugs to connect left-channel audio inputs and outputs (typically labeled “L”). And use yellow plugs to connect composite video inputs and outputs.

Right (red)

Analog audio

(Yellow) (Yellow)

Push plugs in all the way to make good connections (loose connections can cause noise or malfunctions).

To prevent interference, keep audio and video connection cables away from power cords and speaker cables.

Connections—Continued

Connecting your television

Here’s how to connect the DV-S155X to your television so you can view DVD and other images. The connection method depends on the type of connector you use. Depending on the connectors that your television has, connect either the component jacks, the S-video jack, or the composite jack.

If your television has component video input jacks

Use commercially-available component video connection cables to connect the DV-S155X’s component video output jacks to the component video inputs of your television.

Commercially-available component

video connection cables

DV-S155X

DVD PLAYER

DV-S155X

To switch the video output type

If your television supports progressive-scan video, you can use the PROGRESSIVE button on the DV-S155X or on the remote to switch the video output type. Do this while playback is stopped.

Progressive (NTSC only):

This is the higher-quality mode that produces a sharper image. Choose this if you’ve connected a television that supports progressive input. The “PROGRESSIVE” indicator in the display area will light.

Interlaced (default setting):

Choose this if you’ve connected a television that does not support progressive video input.

Note

If you choose Progressive when the DV-S155X is connected to a television that doesn’t support progressive input, the image will not be output correctly. Press the remote’s PROGRESSIVE button to turn off progressive mode.

The image may be garbled when you switch between progressive and interlaced modes.

Regarding the DV-S155X’s compatibility with progressive-scan televisions

At present, some progressive-scan televisions are not completely compatible with the DV-S155X, and can produce garbled images. If you experience problems when using progressive playback, turn off progressive mode on the DV-S155X and use the progressive function provided on your television.

Connections—Continued

Connecting your amp

Refer to the Instruction Manual of your amp as well as the instructions given here.

Before you make connections, turn off the power of all the equipment you’re going to connect, and disconnect all power cords from electrical outlets. Don’t plug in the DV-S155X’s power cord yet.

When making connections, make sure that the plug is inserted all the way into the jack.

Incomplete connection

Insert all the way in

Note

Since the DV-S155X contains components that are vulnerable to heat, don’t place it on top of an amp or other source of heat. Doing so can cause malfunctions.

1 Connect an amp that supports Dolby Digital or DTS, such as the PR-155X This allows you to enjoy Dolby Digital or DTS audio.

2 Connect the audio inputs of your television

Connecting the PR-155X

Use an optical cable to connect the DV-S155X’s AUDIO OUTPUT DIGITAL OPTICAL jack to the optical digital input jack of your amp.

Use the included audio connection cable to connect the DV-S155X’s AUDIO OUTPUT ANALOG jacks to the audio input jacks of your amp.

Tip

You can enjoy 5.1 ch playback with DVD video simply by connecting the digital jack. However you will need to make the analog connections as well if you want to perform analog recording from the DV-S155X onto an MD recorder or other device connected to the amp, or in order to enable system operation with an Onkyo-manufactured amp.

PAL Output Setting

With this setting you can specify how the DV-S155X outputs video signals when playing NTSC format discs.

Auto (default):

Use this option if your TV or projector supports PAL and NTSC. When you play a PAL disc, the video output will be PAL. When you play an NTSC disc, it’ll be NTSC. The DV-S155X does not convert the format.

PAL:

Use this option if your TV doesn’t support NTSC playback, or the picture is distorted when watching NTSC discs. The DV-S155X will convert NTSC format video to a PAL-compatible format known as Mod PAL or 60 Hz PAL.

Note

This setting can be changed only when playback is stopped.

Audio Settings

Digital Out/Digital1

Digital Out/Digital2

You’ll need to perform this procedure if you’ve connected the DV-S155X to an amp that does not support digital signals, or to an MD recorder. The signal you specify for Digital Out/ Digital1 will be output from the DIGITAL OPTICAL jack. The signal you specify for Digital Out/Digital2 will be output from the DIGITAL COAXIAL jack.

• Dolby Digital output Dolby Digital:

Choose this setting if you’ve connected the DV-S155X to an AV amp or decoder that supports Dolby Digital. (This is the default setting.)

Dolby Digital > PCM:

Dolby Digital signals will be converted to linear PCM signals for output. Choose this setting if you’ve connected the DV-S155X to an AV amp that doesn’t support Dolby Digital.

Tip

If you’ve connected the DV-S155X to an MD recorder, choosing the “Dolby Digital > PCM” setting for the digital jack (Digital 1 or 2) to which the recorder is connected will allow you to convert the Dolby Digital signal into PCM and record it on your MD recorder.

• MPEG output MPEG:

Choose this if you’ve connected the DV-S155X to an AV amp that supports MPEG.

MPEG>PCM:

MPEG signals will be converted to linear PCM for output. Choose this if you’ve connected the DV-S155X to an AV amp that doesn’t support MPEG. (This is the default setting.)

• Digital output

This specifies whether digital audio will be output from the DV-S155X’s digital output jack. On: The digital jack will output digital audio signals.

Off: The digital jack will not output digital audio signals.

Linear PCM Out setting

Down Sample On:

Choose this setting if you’ve connected the DV-S155X to an AV amp that does not support 96 kHz audio. (This is the default setting.)

Down Sample Off:

Choose this setting if you’ve connected the DV-S155X to an AV amp that supports 96 kHz audio.

Note

Some discs will forcibly convert to 48/44.1 kHz even if you choose “Down Sample Off,” or may not produce digital output.

96 kHz linear PCM audio from a copy-protected DVD video is automatically converted to 48 kHz for output, or is output as analog audio.

This setting applies to both “Digital Out/Digital1” and “Digital Out/Digital2.”

Dynamic Range Control setting

The Dynamic Range Control setting lets you compress the audio so that loud sounds will be softer and soft sounds will be louder. This is convenient when you find it difficult to hear the dialog of a movie, or when watching a movie late at night.

Off (default):

Dynamic Range Control will be off.

On:

Dynamic Range Control will be on. Loud sounds such as explosions will be softer, and dialog will be easier to hear.

Note

Dynamic Range Control only works for Dolby Digital sound.

This setting automatically reverts to Off when the DV-S155X is turned on.

About Discs—Continued

Handling discs

• Do not touch the playback side of a disc.

Playback side

• Do not attach paper or tape to discs.

Cleaning discs

Fingerprints and dust on a disc can cause picture and sound deterioration. Wipe the disc from the center outwards with a soft cloth. Always keep discs clean.

If you cannot wipe off the dust with a soft cloth, wipe the disc lightly with a slightly moistened soft cloth and finish with a dry cloth.

Do not use any type of solvent, such as thinner, benzene, commercial cleaners or antistatic spray for vinyl LPs. These solvents may damage discs.

Storing discs

Do not store discs in locations subject to direct sunlight or near heat sources.

Do not store discs in locations subject to moisture or dust, such as a bathroom or near a humidifier.

Store discs in cases. Store each case vertically. Stacking or placing objects directly on a disc may cause it to warp.

Copyrights

It is forbidden by law to copy, broadcast, show, broadcast on cable, play in public, or rent copyrighted material without permission. DVD videos are copy-protected, and any recordings made from these discs will be distorted.

This product incorporates copyright protection technology that is protected by method claims of certain U.S. patents and other intellectual property rights owned by Macrovision Corporation and other rights owners. Use of this copyright-protection technology must be authorized by Macrovision Corporation, and is intended for home and other limited viewing uses only, unless otherwise authorized by Macrovision Corporation. Reverse engineering or disassembly is prohibited.

A note regarding condensation

If you move this DVD player from a cold place into a warm room, or use a heater to rapidly warm a cold room, small droplets of water (“condensation”) may form inside the player. Condensation will prevent the player from working properly, and will also damage the disc or parts inside. If condensation occurs, leave the power turned on for one or two hours before you use the player. When not using the player, we recommend that you remove the disc.

DV-S155X-En.book Page 79 Saturday, July 24, 2004 2:20 PM

Troubleshooting

Please check the following points first. It is possible that the cause may lie with other connected equipment, so refer to the Instruction Manual of your other equipment as well.

The numbers shown at the end of a line indicate pages for reference.

Power-related problems

Power does not turn on

Make sure that the power cord has not fallen out of the outlet.

Unplug the power cord from the outlet, wait at least five seconds, and plug it back in again.

Sound-related problems

No sound

Could the power cord have fallen out of the outlet?

Make sure that the connecting cables are firmly connected. (page 13)

Insert RCA-type plugs all the way into the jack.

It is possible that the player is being affected by a strong magnetic field, such as produced by a television. Move the player away from the television.

About the sound quality

Changing the polarity of the power plug will sometimes improve the sound. The sound quality will stabilize ten to thirty minutes after the power is turned on. Please note that the sound quality will deteriorate if you bundle the audio connection cable together with speaker cables.

Video-related problems

Playback image is occasionally distorted

Check whether the disc is dirty.

The image may be somewhat distorted while searching forward or backward. This is not a malfunction of the player.

Frozen image is blurred

• Use the Operation Setting to adjust the Pause/Still. (page 72)

Brightness of the playback image is unsteady. Or, noise is present in the playback image

If you’ve connected the DV-S155X via a video deck or a television with built-in video recorder, copyprotection is being applied. Connect the DV-S155X directly to your television.

On some televisions or monitors, the color level may become slightly lighter or the tint may change during playback. Also, some discs may produce noise in the image because of their high resolution. In such cases, adjust your television or monitor to get the optimal picture.

Picture does not appear on the television screen

Make sure that the correct input is selected on the television to which the DV-S155X is connected.

If the same image is displayed for an extended time while the player is stopped or paused, the screen saver function will operate. In this case, press the button to defeat the screen saver. Press the button once again to begin playback. The screen saver will operate even if a television is not connected, such as when playing a CD.

If you’ve connected the DV-S155X to the component jacks of your television, select the “Interlaced” setting. (page 64)

Picture is stretched vertically or horizontally

The TV Shape setting is not appropriate for your television. Make settings as explained in “Initial setup” or “Advanced setup.” (pages 23, 64)

Mesh-like noise appears on the television screen

• Keep the television antenna cable at a distance from the DV-S155X’s power cord and connection cables.

DV-S155X-En.book Page 80 Saturday, July 24, 2004 2:20 PM

Troubleshooting—Continued

Problems with disc playback

Disc won’t play

When playing a disc recorded in DTS format, you must connect the digital output jack to a DTS-compat- ible decoder. If a DTS-compatible decoder is not connected to the digital output jack when you play back, an extreme level of noise will be output from the DV-S155X’s analog audio output jacks.

Make sure that the disc is a type that the DV-S155X is able to play. (page 74)

Check the region number. (page 3)

If the Parental Lock function is active, defeat it or change the level. (page 72)

There’s a time lag before playback begins

For DVDs and for CDs that contain a large number of songs, a certain amount of time is required for the disc to be read.

Skips occur in the sound

The sound may skip if the player is subjected to vibration, if the disc has a large scratch, or if the disc is dirty.

Can’t memorize songs or scenes

Make sure that a disc is inserted in the player, and that the song or scene you are attempting to memorize is on that disc. Some DVDs prohibit memory operations.

Disc is inserted, but won’t play

Make sure that the correct side of the disc is facing upward.

Make sure that the disc is not badly soiled or scratched.

If you suspect that condensation has occurred, leave the player for approximately one hour before attempting to operate it. (page 78)

Disc doesn’t play in the correct order

Defeat special playback modes such as Repeat Play, Memory Playback, and Random Playback. (pages 57–59)

The specified language, subtitle, or soundtrack is not output

• The disc does not contain the language you specified.

When you play back a DVD or video CD, playback begins from the middle

Troubleshooting—Continued

Problems with MP3/WMA/JPEG playback

Can’t play back a disc that contains MP3/WMA/JPEG files

Make sure that the recorded disc is ISO 9660 compliant. (page 76)

Make sure that the disc containing the files has been finalized.

Can’t select a track (file) recorded on the disc

Files will not be recognized if they have a non-standard filename extension. Change the filename extension. (page 76)

The DV-S155X cannot recognize more than 999 folders or 671 tracks. (page 76)

The DV-S155X does not support multi-session discs. Only the first session of a multi-session disc will be played. (page 76)

Problems with the remote control

The remote control doesn’t work

Are the batteries inserted with the correct polarity (+, –) as indicated? (page 12)

Try replacing both batteries with fresh batteries. (Avoid mixing batteries of differing types, or old and new batteries.)

Could the remote control be too far from the DV-S155X?

Is there an obstruction between the remote control and the DV-S155X?

Is strong light (fluorescent light or direct sunlight) shining on the DV-S155X’s remote control optical sensor?

If the door of your audio rack is made of colored glass, the remote control may not operate correctly.

Problems with connections to external devices

System functions don’t work with other connected Onkyo products

Make sure that both the cable and the audio connection cable are connected correctly. The system will not work if only the cable is connected. (page 18)

Problems with settings

Your settings have disappeared

Your settings will be lost if there is a power failure or the power cord is disconnected while the player is powered-on.

Can’t change the settings

Some settings can’t be changed during playback. In this case, stop playback before you change the settings.

Sound is output in monaural

While playing a video CD, the output will be monaural if you pressed the remote control’s AUDIO button to select Mono L or Mono R. To return to stereo, press the remote control’s AUDIO button once again to select stereo. (page 27)

*The status of this setting is shown in the video output, so you’ll need to connect a television to check the current status.

Troubleshooting—Continued

The manufacturer expressly disclaims any responsibility for damages (including but not limited to CD rental fees) incurred because of your inability to make a satisfactory recording due to a malfunction of this device. Before making an important recording, you should verify that recording occurs correctly.

This device contains sophisticated microcomputer functionality that in rare cases may malfunction due to interference, noise, or static electricity from an external source.

If this occurs, unplug the power cord, wait at least five seconds, and then connect the power cord once again.

To return DVD-related settings to their default state (the factory settings)

1 Remove the disc so that the display section indicates “No Disc”

2 While holding down the (Stop) button, press the STANDBY/ON button

The display will indicate “INITIALIZE” for approximately seven seconds, and will then indicate “COMPLETE.”

DVD-related settings have now been set to their default state (the factory settings).

Glossary

Analog audio

An electrical signal that directly represents sound. Compare this to digital audio which can be an electrical signal, but is an indirect representation of sound. See also “Digital audio”.

Aspect ratio

The width of a TV screen relative to its height. Conventional TVs are 4:3 (in other words, the screen is almost square); widescreen models are 16:9 (the screen is almost twice as wide as it is high).

Digital audio

An indirect representation of sound by numbers. During recording, the sound is measured at discrete intervals (44,100 times a second for CD audio) by an analog-to-digital converter, generating a stream of numbers.

On playback, a digital-to-analog converter generates an analog signal based on these numbers. See also “Sampling frequency” and “Analog audio”.

Dolby Digital

Using a maximum of 5.1 channels of audio, this high quality surround system is used in many of the finer movie theaters around the world.

The on-screen display shows which channels are active, for example showing 3/2.1. The 3 being the two front channels and the center channel; the 2 being the surround channels, and the .1 being the LFE channel.

DRM

DRM (digital rights management) is a type of server software developed to enable secure distribution of paid content over the web, recently incorporated by WMA (Windows Media Audio).

DTS

DTS stands for Digital Theater Sys-

tems. DTS is a surround system different from Dolby Digital that has become a popular surround sound format for movies.

Glossary—Continued

Dynamic range

The difference between the quietest and loudest sounds possible in an audio signal (without distorting or getting lost in noise).

Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks are capable of a very wide dynamic range, delivering dramatic cinema-like effects.

EXIF (Exchangeable Image File)

A file format developed by Fuji Photo Film for digital still cameras. Digital cameras from various manufacturers use this compressed file format which carries date, time and thumbnail information, as well as the picture data.

File extension

A tag added to the end of a filename to indicate the type of file. For example, “.mp3” indicates an MP3 file.

ISO 9660 format

International standard for the volume and file structure of CD-ROM discs.

JPEG

A file format used for still images, such as photographs and illustrations. JPEG files are identified by the file extension “.jpg” or “.JPG”. Most digital cameras use this format.

MP3

MP3 (MPEG1 audio layer 3) is a compressed audio file format. Files are recognized by their file extension “.mp3” or “.MP3”.

MPEG audio

An audio format used on Video CDs and some DVD discs. This unit can convert MPEG audio to PCM format for wider compatibility with digital recorders and AV amplifiers. See also “PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)”.

MPEG video

The video format used for Video CDs and DVDs. Video CD uses the older MPEG-1 standard, while DVD uses the newer and much better quality MPEG-2 standard.

PBC (PlayBack Control) (Video CD only)

A system of navigating a Video CD through on-screen menus recorded onto the disc. Especially good for discs that you would nor-

mally not watch from beginning to end all at once—karaoke discs, for example.

PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)

The most common system of encoding digital audio, found on CDs and DAT. Excellent quality, but requires a lot of data compared to formats such as Dolby Digital and MPEG audio. For compatibility with digital audio recorders (CD, MD and DAT) and AV amplifiers with digital inputs, this unit can convert Dolby Digital, DTS and MPEG audio to PCM. See also “Digital audio”.

Regions (DVD-Video only)

These associate discs and players with particular areas of the world. This unit will only play discs that have compatible region codes. You can find the region code of your unit by looking on the rear panel. Some discs are compatible with more than one region (or all regions).

Sampling frequency

The rate at which sound is measured to be turned into digital audio data. The higher the rate, the better the sound quality, but the more digital information is generated. Standard CD audio has a sampling frequency of 44.1kHz, which means 44,100 samples (measurements) per second. See also “Digital audio”.

WMA

WMA is short for Windows Media Audio and refers to an audio compression technology developed by Microsoft Corporation. WMA data can be encoded by using Windows Media Player version 8 or Windows Media Player for Windows XP.
