Safety precautions
Placement
Set the unit up on an even surface away
from direct sunlight, high temperatures,
high humidity, and excessive vibration.
These conditions can damage the
cabinet and other components, thereby
shortening the unit’s service life. Do not
place heavy items on the unit.
Voltage
Do not use high voltage power sources.
This can overload the unit and cause
a fire. Do not use a DC power source.
Check the source carefully when setting
the unit up on a ship or other place where
DC is used.
AC mains lead protection
Ensure the AC mains lead is connected
correctly and not damaged. Poor
connection and lead damage can cause
fire or electric shock. Do not pull, bend, or
place heavy items on the lead.
Grasp the plug firmly when unplugging
the lead. Pulling the AC mains lead can
cause electric shock. Do not handle the
plug with wet hands. This can cause
electric shock.
Foreign matter
Do not let metal objects fall inside the
unit. This can cause electric shock or
malfunction.
Do not let liquids get into the unit. This
can cause electric shock or malfunction.
If this occurs, immediately disconnect the
unit from the power supply and contact
your dealer.
Do not spray insecticides onto or into the
unit. They contain flammable gases which
can ignite if sprayed into the unit.
Service
Do not attempt to repair this unit by
yourself. If sound is interrupted, indicators
fail to light, smoke appears, or any other
problem that is not covered in these
instructions occurs, disconnect the AC
mains lead and contact your dealer or
an authorized service center. Electric
shock or damage to the unit can occur
if the unit is repaired, disassembled or
reconstructed by unqualified persons.
Extend operating life by disconnecting
the unit from the power source if it is not
to be used for a long time.

level feature does not prohibit play of
such discs.

has specific numerical values. These jacks send
audio through two channels, the left and right.

ratio of conventional TVs is 4:3, and that of wide
screens is 16:9.
AUDIO OUT jacks: Jacks on the back of the DVD
System that send audio to another system (TV,
Stereo, etc.).
Bit Rate: The amount of data used to hold a given
length of music; measured in kilobits per seconds, or
kbps. Or, the speed at which you record. Generally,
the higher the bit rate, or the higher the recording
speed, the better the sound quality. However, higher
bit rates use more space on a disc.
Chapter: Sections of a picture or a music piece on a
DVD that are smaller than titles. A title is composed
of several chapters. Each chapter is assigned a
chapter number enabling you to locate the chapter
you want.
Component Video Out jacks: Jacks on the back of

that has Component Video In jacks.
Disc menu: A screen display prepared for allowing of
selection of images, sound, subtitle, multi-angles etc.

right, center and subwoofer).

still-picture data compression system proposed by
the Joint Photographic Expert Group, which features
small decrease in image quality in spite of its high
compression ratio.

soundtrack constitute one sound field. Multichannel
refers to a structure of soundtracks having three or
more channels.

playback of the disc by the age of the users
according to the limitation level in each country. The
limitation varies from disc to disc; when it is activated,
playback will be prohibited if the software’s level is
higher than the user-set level.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation): A system for
converting analogue sound signal to digital for
later processing, with no data compression used in
conversion.
Playback control (PBC): Refers to the signal
recorded on Video CDs or SVCDs for controlling
reproduction. By using menu screens recorded on a
Video CD or SVCD that supports PBC, you can enjoy
interactive-type software as well as software having a
search function.
