immediately wash the affected area. Seek medical advice if battery
acid has been swallowed.In case of contact with your eyes wash out
the eyes and seek medical advice.
Mismatching battery types or new and used batteries must never be
used together. Different battery types have different properties. Do
not use old and new batteries together. The mutual use of old and new
batteries can shorten the lifetime of the new batteries and possibly
result in leakage of the old batteries. When disposing of old batteries
you should strictly comply with the legal and environmental regula-
tions applicable in your country. Do not throw batteries into fire!

If you want to use the remote control it has to be pointed at the remote
control sensor on the front of the device. The distance between remote
control and sensor should not exceed 7m. The angle of the remote con-
trol to the remote control sensor to right, left, top and bottom should
not exceed 30°.
An undisturbed operation can be guaranteed only with Audio/Video
lines up to 1.5 m length.
The video cable transmits the video data from your DVD-Player to the TV
or the Video-Projector.
There are four different options to connect the DVD player to your TV/
video projector. Choose a suitable option in reference to your playback

About the DVD-Player
With this DVD-Player you can play a vast variety of DVD-formats
Page 37, “Technical data“.
However, you must be aware that in many cases DVDs are encrypted
with a so-called “Regional Code”. This specifies for which region in the
world the DVD is intended. As an example, the DVDs marked with regi-
onal code “1” are intended for the USA and Canada. DVDs with regional
code “2” are for use in Europe.
With your DVD-Player you can only play DVDs with regional code “2”.
There are both lots of burning and compressing methods as well as
high quality differences in (burned) CDs/DVDs. Moreover, the music
industry has not yet agreed on a fixed standard for copy protection.
This may, in very isolated cases, result in problems when relaying CDs,
DVDs and MP3 CDs. This is no malfunction of the player.
Furthermore, there may be isolated problems when playing CDs or DVDs
which were created on a PC (e.g. holiday photographs). In case of pro-
blems check the settings of the DVD writing program on your computer.
You should in particular make sure that the DVD has been finalized. For
further information on this matter please refer to the operating manual
of your recorder.
Input Not Possible
If you select an invalid function or entry, the message “INVALID KEY“ will
appear on the screen.
	 Track: ”Track” is the designation for sections on an Audio-CD. This
may be a song, the set of a symphony, etc.
	 Title/Chapter: Video-DVDs are divided into “Title” and “Chapters“.
A “Title“ may be e.g. a particular film, the “Chapters“ may be
subsections of this film.
	 HDMI: High Definition Multimedia Interface is an interface for
transmitting high definition digital video data as well as digital
audio data.
	 MPEG4: Your DVD player is also suitable for playing back files that
have been compressed using the MPEG-4 system (short for Moving
Picture Experts Group-4). MPEG-4 is a compression method by

special functions such as a menu, subtitles etc. are not always sup-
ported. This is no malfunction of the player.

2.	 Select the desired file(s) and start the replay Page 51, “Selecting
file/directory and starting replay.
By means of the USB connection you can connect numerous devices
to the DVD Player. Examples of such devices are USB memory sticks or
digital cameras.
This device has been developed in accordance with the latest technical
developments in the USB field. Unfortunately the large number of dif-
ferent types of USB storage media on offer today makes it impossible to
guarantee full compatibility with all USB storage media. For this reason
there may be problems in rare cases with playing back from USB storage
media. This is not a malfunction of the device.
1.	 Plug a USB memory device directly into the corresponding port of
the DVD player (Fig. 1/18).
2. 	Press the FUNCTION button (Fig. 2/4) on the remote control repea-
tedly until USB is displayed on the screen. Playback begins automati-
In order to find out which files can be played back the DVD player
now reads the contents of the storage medium. In the case of large
storage media this procedure may take a long time. During this
time you will see the words “ READ USB“ on the screen.
3.	 Select the desired file(s) and start playback Page 51, “Selecting
file/directory and starting replay“.
Media can contain various data/files and directories. Hence, you have to
define beforehand which files shall be reproduced.
1.	 If still not done: insert the CD or DVD into the drive. Or connect a
USB storage device. The file selection dialog is displayed now. This is
structured as follows:
	 - directory view (1)
	 - file view (2)
	 - currently selected directory and, if applicable, selected file (3):
	 The directory name will be displayed in square brackets.
	 Example: “[directory1] file name2.jpg”.
	 - ”Select Audio Files” button (4): Music files are displayed.
	 - “Select Photo Files“ button (5): Photo files are displayed.
	 - “Select Video Files” button (6): Movie files are displayed.
In this menu, you can navigate the directory view, file view and
selection buttons using the Cursor Buttons ( , ) on the remote
Numerous reproduction and compression procedures as well as diffe-
rences in quality of CDs/DVDs and burned CDs and DVDs are available.

Stopping the replay
Viewing pictures
Because of this reason problems with the play of files, (i.e. files may be
displayed but cannot be played), may occur in isolated cases. This is not
a malfunction of tyhe unit.
2.	 If the storage media contains different file types (e.g. audio and
video files) potentially you might get wrong file type information.
Example: You are viewing audio files in the file selection dialog but
you’d like to play video files. In this case, select the desired file type
using either of the selection buttons, e.g. “Select Audio Files”. For this
purpose, navigate to the selection buttons using the Cursor Buttons
( , ) (Fig. 2/24) on the remote control. Confirm your entry by
ENTER (Fig. 2/16).
Selection buttons can be navigated only if corresponding files are
present. Hence, if there are no video files on a media the “Select Video
Files” button is not enabled.
3.	 Select the directory to be played. To do so, select the directory
over-view using the Cursor Buttons ( , ) (Fig. 2/24) on the remote
control. The currently selected directory will be highlighted orange. If
desired change the directory using the Cursor Buttons ( , ).
4.	 Start playback by PLAY (Fig. 2/26). All files of the selected directo-
ry will be played back.
Select file
If you want to play back only one file or if you want to start playback
with a certain file proceed as follows:
1.	 Select as described above, the file type and the directory containing
the desired file. Page 51, “Selecting file/directory and starting
replay“, item 1-3.
2.	 Switch to file view using the Cursor Buttons ( , ) (Fig. 2/24) of the
remote control.

The DVD player is suitable for displaying your digital photographs. These
photos may be stored only any medium (DVD, CD, etc.) supported by the
DVD player.
	 Please ensure a suitable size of the photos. Large size photos may
take some time to be displayed or may not be displayed at all. It is
of advantage if the size of the photo corresponds with the screen
size of the playback device. For TVs this is normally 1024x576 pixel
(TV-aspect 16:9) or 768x576 (TV-aspect 4:3).
	 Please note that any conversion generally involves a loss of data
with respect to the original format.

HD Output (Resolution)
Select the HDMI resolution for the connected reproducer to be used. The
selection of the correct signal format depends on the connection in use
and the reproducer. (Please refer to the user manual of the reproducer.)
The “Video” menu is only available when the option “HD OFF” in the
menu “HD Output” is enabled.
You can define the signal format transmitted to your reproducer by the
option “Video”.
	 TV-RGB: Select this option if your playback device is connected to

TV Type
Here you can adjust the output of the DVD player to the aspect ratio of
your reproducer.
Background: If you don’t have a Wide-Screen TV your screen features an
aspect ratio of 4:3. Most movies, though, feature an aspect ratio of 16:9
so their image is too wide for the TV set.
Here you can set how the image of the movie is adjusted to your
	 4:3 PS: Only the central area of the picture is visible. The edges are
cropped (“Pan-Scan”).
	 4:3 LB: The entire picture is visible but scaled down, thus being
framed by black bars on top and bottom (“Letter-Box”).
	 16:9: Select this option when you have a wide-screen TV set.
Please mind that movies taken with an aspect ratio of 4:3 still are
displayed in this ratio. Hence, not the full area of the wide-screen
TV set is used for the picture.
The setting “4:3 PS” is not supported by all DVDs.

If you’d like to secure your DVD-Player with a child lock you have to
attribute a password first. The password protection saves your child lock
settings so they can be modified only by you. To change the password,
you have to enter the current password.
The default password is “0000“.
Remember your password. Without this password you can no longer
change the child protection function.
To change the password, proceed as follows:
1.	 Enter the current password using the Numerical Buttons (Fig. 2/31)
on the remote control.
To avoid the password being read by unauthorized persons, only
the characters “XXXX” appear on screen.
2.	 Confirm your entry by pressing ENTER (Fig. 2/16).
3.	 Now enter your new password with the Numerical Buttons (Fig.
2/31) on the remote control.
Rating (child protection)
Some DVDs contain information concerning the target group. At this,
the procedure is similar to the release of cinema films. (e.g. “released for
age 12“).
If the child protection option is enabled the respective information (if
existing) will be read from the DVD and compared to the value preset
by you. If a DVD is intended for a higher age group than the one preset
by you the DVD cannot be played back. The following child protection
options can be chosen:
	 1 G: Suitable for children.
	 2: Suitable for all age groups.
	 3 PG: Parental supervision is recommended. Some passages might
be inappropriate for children.

	 Menu Language: The language of the DVD menu.
Audio Output
Here, you can set your preferences for the digital audio output.
	 SPDIF/OFF: The output signal will be only analog but not digital.
	 SPDIF/RAW: The output will be digital. Use this setting if your
amplifier is not a stereo two-channel amplifier.
	 SPDIF/PCM: The output will be a digital audio signal converted
into a 2 channel signal. Use this setting if your amplifier is a stereo

the sound less disturbing.
	 Line Out: Night mode is enabled.
	 RF Remod: Night mode is disabled.
Dynamic (Dynamic Range)
The term “Dynamic Range” defines the ratio of the lowest tone and the
loudest. If this Dynamic Range is very high then there is very low volume
as well as very loud passages.
This might cause some problems for the reproduction. Assume you
want to play a DVD in a very noisy environment. You can increase the
volume to be able to hear the low-volume passages but this entails that
the loud passages become inappropriately noisy. Hence, it is useful to
compress the dynamic range (i.e. decrease) and increase the volume at
the same time.
	 FULL -2/8: The dynamic range is compressed slightly (2/8) to maxi-
mum (FULL).
	 OFF: The dynamic range is uncompressed (factory setting).
Dual Mono
Normally, the sound output is in stereo. Here, you can choose a mono
output instead of stereo.
	 Stereo: The output is in stereo (factory setting).
	 Left: The output is in mono. All speakers will receive the left stereo
channel signal.
	 Right: Output is set to mono. All speakers will receive the right
stereo channel signal.
	 Mix Mono: Output is in mono. All speakers will receive both stereo
