PRECAUTIONS

Precautions on viewing stereoscopic 3D images

Do not view stereoscopic 3D images if you have a history of photosensitivity, heart disease or poor health. This may cause the symptoms to worsen.

If you experience any health problems such as fatigue and discomfort while viewing stereoscopic 3D images, immediately discontinue viewing. Continuing viewing after symptoms appear may cause health risks. Take a break until the symptoms have completely disappeared.

Ages of 5–6 or over are recommended for viewing stereoscopic 3D images. Symptoms such as fatigue and discomfort are difficult to determine in young children, therefore they may suddenly become ill. When viewing 3D images with children, please watch for eye strain symptoms.

When viewing stereoscopic 3D images, take a moderate break after watching one title. Viewing for extended periods may cause visual strain.

Precautions when cleaning this product

Turn off the main power and unplug the AC cord from the wall outlet before handling.

To clean the outer cabinet, periodically wipe it with a soft cloth (cotton, flannel, etc.).

For severe dirt, soak a soft cloth (cotton, flannel, etc.) in some neutral detergent diluted with water, wring the cloth out thoroughly, wipe off the dirt, then wipe again with a soft, dry cloth.

Do not use chemicals or a chemically treated cloth for cleaning. It may damage the cabinet finish.

Notes on using Wireless LAN

When this player is connected to a wireless LAN network, transmissions between the wireless LAN adapter (supplied) and a wireless LAN compatible broadband router (commercially available) are carried out.

Precautions on using Wireless LAN

The following devices, radio stations, etc. use the same frequency bands. Do not use wireless LAN near them.

Manufacturing/scientific/diagnostic equipment such as pacemakers, etc. Specified low power radio stations (radio stations that do not require a license)

If this player is used near these devices, there is a possibility that radio wave interference may occur. Therefore transmission may not be possible or speed may be reduced.

Mobile phones, radios, etc. use different radio frequency bands from wireless LAN, so there will not be any effect on the transmissions of these devices or wireless LAN if this player is used near them.

However, if a wireless LAN product is placed near one of these devices, audio or video noise may occur due to the electromagnetic waves that emit from wireless LAN products.

Radio waves will pass through the wood, glass, etc. used in standard housing, however they will not pass through reinforcing bars, metal, concrete, etc. Radio waves will not pass through walls and floors if these materials are used.

Important Information

Disc Precautions

Be Careful of Scratches and Dust

BD, DVD and CD discs are sensitive to dust, fingerprints and especially scratches. A scratched disc may not

be able to be played back. Handle discs with care and store them in a safe place.

Proper Disc Storage

Place the disc in the center of the disc case and store the case and disc upright.

Avoid storing discs in locations subject to direct sunlight, close to heating appliances or in locations of high humidity.

Do not drop discs or subject them to strong vibrations or impacts.

Avoid storing discs in locations where there are large amounts of dust or moisture.

Handling Precautions

If the surface is soiled, wipe gently with a soft, damp (water only) cloth. When wiping discs, always move the cloth from the center hole toward the outer edge.

Do not use record cleaning sprays, benzene, thinner, static electricity prevention liquids or any other solvent.

Do not touch the surface.

Do not stick paper or adhesive labels to the disc.

If the playing surface of a disc is soiled or scratched, the Player may decide that the disc is incompatible and eject the disc tray, or it may fail to play the disc correctly. Wipe any dirt off the playing surface with a soft cloth.

Cleaning the Pick Up Lens

Never use commercially available cleaning discs. The use of these discs can damage the lens.

Request the nearest service center approved by SHARP to clean the lens.

Warnings about dew formation

Condensation may form on pick up lens or disc in the following conditions:

Immediately after a heater has been turned on.

In a steamy or very humid room.

When the Player is suddenly moved from a cold environment to a warm one.

When condensation forms:

It becomes difficult for the Player to read the signals on the disc and prevents the Player from operating

properly.

To remove condensation:

Take out the disc and leave the Player with the power off until the condensation disappears. Using the Player when there is condensation may cause malfunction.

Manual Update from USB memory device

This function allows software updates by inserting a USB memory device with the update file into the USB1 or USB2 terminal on this player.

When a software update is performed, the software update data must be written onto the USB memory device in advance using a PC.

The USB memory device must be clear of all files except software update data to allow new software uploading.

To check for the availability of a software update, visit www.sharpusa.com/products/support/. If you have any questions, please call 1-800-BE- SHARP (800-237-4277).

When software update data is released, copy the data onto a USB memory device after downloading it to a PC.

For methods such as downloading and copying to a USB memory device, carefully read the description shown on the website before performing the operation.

Do not extract the firmware update file to any folders other than the root directory on the USB memory device. The firmware update file must be only one file directly in the root directory.

CAUTION

Do not remove the USB memory device or unplug the AC cord while the software is being updated.

When you insert or remove a USB memory device, be sure to turn the main power off and make sure that “Quick Start” is set to “No” (See page 43).
