Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion-and, most importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.

Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts.

To establish a safe level:

Start your volume control at a low setting.

Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.

Once you have established a comfortable sound level:

• Set the dial and leave it there.

Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.

We Want You Listening For A Lifetime

Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since hearing damage from loud noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of sound levels is included for your protection.

Decibel

Level Example

30 Quiet library, soft whispers

40 Living room, refrigerator, bedroom away from traffic

50 Light traffic, normal conversation, quiet office

60 Air conditioner at 20 feet, sewing machine

70 Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, noisy restaurant

80Average city traffic, garbage disposals, alarm clock at two feet.

THE FOLLOWING NOISES CAN BE DANGEROUS UNDER CONSTANT EXPOSURE

90 Subway, motorcycle, truck traffic, lawn mower

100 Garbage truck, chain saw, pneumatic drill

120 Rock band concert in front of speakers, thunderclap

140 Gunshot blast, jet plane

180 Rocket launching pad

Important

Before making or changing any connections, switch off the power and disconnect the power cable from the AC outlet.

The setup described here is a basic setup that allows you to play discs using just the cables supplied with the player. In this setup, stereo audio is played through the speakers in your TV.

This player is equipped with copy protection technology. Do not connect this player to your TV via a VCR using audio/video or S-video cables, as the picture from this player will not appear properly on your TV. (This player may also not be compatible with some combination TV/VCRs for the same reason; refer to the manufacturer for more information.)

Note

Before unplugging the player from the power outlet, make sure you first switch it into standby using either the front panelSTANDBY/ON button, or the remote control, and wait of the -OFF- message to disappear from the player’s display.

For the above reasons, do not plug this player into a switched power supply found on some amplifiers and AV receivers.

Connecting using the S-video output

If your TV (or other equipment) has an S-video (S1) input, you can use the S-video output on this player instead of the standard (composite) output for a better quality picture.

• Use an S-video cable (not supplied) to connect the S-VIDEO OUT to an S-video input on your TV (or monitor or AV receiver).

Line up the small triangle above the jack with the same mark on the plug before plugging in.

Connecting using the component video output

You can use the component video output instead of the standard video out jack to connect this player to your TV (or other equipment). This should give you the best quality picture from the three types of video output available.

• Use a component video cable (not supplied) to connect the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks to a component video input on your TV, monitor or AV receiver.

Watching progressive scan video from the component video outputs

This player can output progressive scan video from the component video output. Compared to interlace video, progressive scan video effectively doubles the scanning rate of the picture, resulting in a very stable, flicker-free image.

To set up the player for use with a progressive scan TV, see Video Output settings on page 40. When the player is set to output progressive scan video, the PRGSVE indicator lights in the front panel display.

Important

If you connect a TV that is not compatible with a progressive scan signal and switch the player to progressive, you will not be able to see any picture at all. In this case, switch everything off and reconnect using the supplied video cable (see Easy connections on page 11), then switch back to Interlace (see below).

Switching the video output to interlace using the front panel controls

Switch the player to standby then, using the front panel controls, press STANDBY/ON while pressing to switch the player back to

Interlace.

If the player is connected using HDMI, disconnect the HDMI cable before resetting the player to interlace output. (If left connected, the HDMI output resolution will be reset to its default — see

Resetting the output resolution to the default setting with HDMI connection on page 16.)

Connecting to an AV receiver

You can connect this player to your AV receiver using the multichannel analog outputs or one of the digital outputs.

In addition to these connections, you should also connect the 2 channel analog outputs for compatibility with all discs.

You’ll probably also want to connect a video output to your AV receiver. You can use any of the video outputs available on this player (the illustration shows a standard (composite) connection).

Connecting the multichannel analog outputs

If your AV receiver has 5.1 channel analog inputs, we recommend connecting this player to it using the multichannel analog outputs. Doing this will ensure that you can enjoy all kinds of disc, including Dolby Digital and DTS DVD-Video discs, as well as high sampling rate and multichannel DVD-Audio and SACD discs.

• Connect the multi-channel audio outputs on this player to the multi-channel audio inputs on your AV receiver.

It’s convenient to use three stereo audio cables; one for the FRONT, one for the SURROUND and one for the CENTER and

SUBWOOFER channels.

Connecting the digital output

This player has both optical and coaxial-type digital audio outputs for connection to an AV receiver. Connect whichever is convenient.

Depending on the capabilities of your AV receiver, you might have to set up this player to output only digital audio in a compatible format. See Digital Audio Out settings on page 39 and refer to the operating instructions that came with your AV receiver.

Note that SACD audio is not output through these jacks, so this connection should be in addition to, rather than instead of, a 5.1 channel analog connection.

• Connect one of the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jacks on this player to a digital input on your AV receiver.

You can also use the S-video or component video jacks to connect to the AV receiver if you prefer.

Tip

After connecting up and switching on, you should change the Audio Output Mode setting in the Initial Setup menu from the default 2 Channel to 5.1 Channel. See also Audio Output Mode on page 45.

For an optical connection, use an optical cable (not supplied) to connect the OPTICAL DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack to an optical input on your AV receiver.

For a coaxial connection, use a coaxial cable (similar to the supplied video cable) to connect the COAXIAL DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack to a coaxial input on your AV receiver.

Note

This unit has been designed to be compliant with HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface). Depending on the component you have connected, using a DVI connection may result in unreliable signal transfers.

When you change the component connected to the HDMI output, you will also need to change the HDMI settings to match the new component (see HDMI Out on page 39, HDMI Resolution and HDMI Color on page 40 to do this). However, the settings for each component are then stored in memory (for up to 2 components).

The HDMI connection is compatible with 2 channel linear PCM signals (44.1 kHz to 192 kHz, 16 bit/20 bit/24 bit), and Dolby Digital, DTS, MPEG audio bitstream, multi channel DSD, and multi channel linear PCM signals, (5.1 channel signals up to 96 kHz, 16 bit/20 bit/24 bit).

About HDMI

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) supports both video and audio on a single digital connection for use with DVD players, DTV, set-top boxes, and other AV devices. HDMI was developed to provide the technologies of High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) as well as Digital Visual Interface (DVI) in one specification. HDCP is used to protect digital content transmitted and received by DVI-compliant displays.

HDMI has the capability to support standard, enhanced, or high-definition video plus standard to multi-channel surround-sound audio. HDMI features include uncompressed digital video, a bandwidth of up to five gigabytes per second (with HDTV signals), one connector (instead of several cables and connectors), and communication between the AV source and AV devices such as DTVs.

Resetting the output resolution to the default setting with HDMI connection

Switch the player to standby then, using the front panel controls, press STANDBY/ON while pressing to switch the player back to

480P.

FAQ

After I load a DVD disc, it ejects automatically after a few seconds!

Most likely, the disc is the wrong region for your player. The region number should be printed on the disc; check it against the region number of the player (which you can find on the rear panel). See also DVDVideo regions on page 53.

If the region number is OK, it may be that the disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc and look for signs of damage. See also

Taking care of your player and discs on page 51.

Why won’t the disc I loaded play?

First check that you loaded the disc the right way up (label side up), and that it’s clean and undamaged. See Taking care of your player and discs on page 51 for information on cleaning discs.

If a disc loaded correctly won’t play, it’s probably an incompatible format or disc type, such as DVD-ROM. See Disc/content format playback compatibility on page 8 for more on disc compatibility.

I have a widescreen TV so why are there black bars at the top and bottom of the screen when I play some discs?

Some movie formats are such that even when played on a widescreen TV, black bars are necessary at the top and bottom of the screen. This is not a malfunction.

I have a standard (4:3) TV and set the player to show widescreen DVDs in pan & scan format, so why do I still get black bars top and bottom with some discs?

Some discs override the display preferences of the player, so even if you have 4:3 (Pan & Scan) selected, those discs will still be shown in letter box format. This is not a malfunction.

04Getting started

I’ve connected to a HDMI compatible component but I can’t get any signal and the front panel HDMI indicator won’t light!

Make sure that you’ve selected this player as the HDMI input in the settings for the component you’re using. You may need to refer to the instruction manual of the component to do this. See Connecting using HDMI on page 15 for more on HDMI compatibility.

There’s no picture from the HDMI output!

This player cannot display pictures from DVI compatible sources. See Connecting using HDMI on page 15 for more on HDMI compatibility.

Make sure the resolution on this player matches that of the component you have connected using HDMI. See HDMI Resolution on page 40 to change the HDMI resolution.

My AV receiver is definitely compatible with 96 kHz/88.2 kHz Linear PCM audio, but it doesn’t seem to work with this player. What’s wrong?

For digital copy-protection purposes, some 96 kHz/88.2 kHz DVD discs only output digital audio downsampled to 48 kHz/ 44.1 kHz. This is not a malfunction.

To fully take advantage of the high sampling rate audio, connect the analog audio outputs to your amplifier/receiver.

Why can’t I hear SACD audio through the digital outputs?

SACD digital audio is only available through the HDMI outputs when connected to an HDMI-compatible amp that can handle protected audio contents. Some DVD-Audio discs too only output audio through the analog outputs.

Is it better to listen to DVD-Audio discs through the analog outputs?

Some DVD-Audio discs do not output anything through the digital outputs, and multichannel discs are downmixed to stereo for the digital output. In addition, high sampling rate DVD-Audio discs (higher than 96 kHz) automatically downsample audio output from the digital outputs.

Using the multichannel analog audio outputs for DVD-Audio have none of these limitations.

My DVD-Audio disc starts playing, but then suddenly stops!

The disc may have been illegally copied.

To give you some control over what your children watch on your DVD player, some DVD-Video discs feature a Parental Lock level. If your player is set to a lower level than the disc, the disc won’t play.

Some discs also support the Country/Area Code feature. The player does not play certain scenes on these discs, depending on the Country/Area Code you set.

Note

Not all discs use Parental Lock, and will play without requiring the password first.

If you forget your password, you’ll need to reset the player to register a new password (see Resetting the player on page 53).

Registering a new password

You must register a password before you can change the Parental Lock level or enter a Country code.

About DivX® VOD content

In order to play DivX VOD (video on demand) content on this player, you first need to register the player with your DivX VOD content provider. You do this by generating a DivX VOD registration code, which you submit to your provider.

Important

DivX VOD content is protected by a DRM (Digital Rights Management) system. This restricts playback of content to specific, registered devices.

If you load a disc that contains DivX VOD content not authorized for your player, the message Authorization Error is displayed and the content will not play.

Resetting the player (as described in

Resetting the player on page 53) will not cause you to lose your registration code.

Playing DivX® VOD content

Some DivX VOD content may only be playable a fixed number of times. When you load a disc containing this type of DivX VOD content, the remaining number of plays is shown onscreen and you then have the option of playing the disc (thereby using up one of the remaining plays), or stopping. If you load a disc that contains expired DivX VOD content (for example, content that has zero remaining plays), the message Rental Expired is displayed.

If your DivX VOD content allows an unlimited number of plays, then you may load the disc into your player and play the content as often as you like, and no message will be displayed.

If you connected this player to your amplifier using the 5.1 channel analog outputs (front, surround, center and subwoofer outs), set this to 5.1 Channel; if you connected only the stereo outs, set to 2 Channel.

If you set to 2 Channel, Dolby Digital, DTS and MPEG audio is mixed down to two channels so you still hear all the audio recorded on the disc. With DTS encoded audio, you can choose how the signal is downmixed to PCM audio. See DTS Downmix on page 43 to change the downmix setting.

Some DVD-Audio discs don’t allow downmixing of audio. These discs always output multi-channel audio regardless of the setting made here.

Note

Even if you set Audio Output Mode to

5.1 Channel, you’ll only get sound from all speakers when playing a 5.1 channel multi-channel disc.

When set to 5.1 Channel, only the front left/ right channels are output from the AUDIO OUT (2ch) jacks. Change to 2 Channel if you want to listen to downmixed stereo audio (for example, because you are listening through the TV’s built-in speakers).

When set to 5.1 Channel there is no digital output when playing DVD-Audio.

Additional information

Taking care of your player and discs

General

Hold discs by the edge or by the center hole and edge.

When you’re not using a disc, return it to its case and store upright. Avoid leaving discs in excessively cold, humid, or hot environments (including under direct sunlight).

Don’t glue paper or put stickers on to discs. Do not use a pencil, ball-point pen or other sharptipped writing instrument to write on the disc.

Cleaning discs

Fingerprints and dust on discs can affect playback performance. Clean using a soft, dry cloth, wiping the disc lightly from the center to the outside edge as shown below.

If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol, or a commercially available CD/DVD cleaning kit to clean a disc more thoroughly. Never use benzine, thinner or other cleaning agents, including products designed for cleaning vinyl records.

Don’t use self-adhesive disc labels on discs as these can cause the disc to warp slightly during playback causing distortion in the picture and/or sound.

Damaged and shaped discs

Do not use cracked, chipped, warped, or otherwise damaged discs as they may damage the player.

This player is designed to be used only with conventional, fully circular discs. Do not use shaped discs. Pioneer disclaims all liability arising in connection with the use of shaped discs.

Cleaning the unit’s exterior

Unplug the unit before cleaning.

Use a dry cloth to wipe off dust and dirt. If the surfaces are very dirty, wipe with a soft cloth dipped in some neutral cleanser diluted five or six times with water and wrung out well, then wipe again with a dry cloth.

Do not use furniture wax or cleaners. Never use thinners, benzine or insecticide sprays or other chemicals on or near this unit.

If you use a chemical-impregnated cleaning cloth, read the instructions carefully before use. These cloths may leave smear marks on half-mirror finish surfaces; if this happens, finish with a dry cloth.

Cleaning the pickup lens

The DVD player’s lens should not become dirty

 

in normal use, but if for some reason it should

 

malfunction due to dust or dirt, consult your

 

nearest Pioneer-authorized service center. We

 

do not recommend using commercially

51

available lens cleaners for CD players.

Condensation

Condensation may form inside the player if it is brought into a warm room from outside, or if the temperature of the room rises quickly.

Although the condensation won’t damage the player, it may temporarily impair its performance. Leave it to adjust to the warmer temperature for about an hour before switching on.

Moving the player

If you need to move the player, first press

STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn the player off. Wait for -OFF- to disappear from the display, then unplug the power cable. Never lift or move the unit during playback — discs rotate at a high speed and may be damaged.

Standard TV users

If you have a standard TV, the TV Screen setting (page 40) of this player should be set to

4:3 (Letter Box) or 4:3 (Pan&Scan), depending on which you prefer.

Set to 4:3 (Letter Box), widescreen discs are shown with black bars top and bottom.

Set to 4:3 (Pan&Scan), widescreen discs are shown with the left and right sides cropped. Although the picture looks larger, you don’t actually see the whole picture.

Screen sizes and disc formats

DVD-Video discs come in several different screen aspect ratios, ranging from TV programs, which are generally 4:3, to CinemaScope widescreen movies, with an aspect ratio of up to about 7:3.

Televisions, too, come in different aspect ratios; ‘standard’ 4:3 and widescreen 16:9.

Widescreen TV users

If you have a widescreen TV, the TV Screen setting (page 40) of this player should be set to

16:9 (Wide) or 16:9 (Compressed).

When you watch discs recorded in 4:3 format with the 16:9 (Wide) setting, you can use the TV controls to select how the picture is presented. Your TV may offer various zoom and stretch options; see the instructions that came with your TV for details.

Please note that some movie aspect ratios are wider than 16:9, so even though you have a widescreen TV, these discs will still play in a ‘letter box’ style with black bars at the top and bottom of the screen.

Please note that many widescreen discs override the player’s settings so that the disc is shown in letter box format regardless of the setting.

Note

Using the 16:9 (Wide) or 16: 9 (Compressed) setting with a standard 4:3 TV, or either of the 4:3 settings with a widescreen TV, will result in a distorted picture.
