CAUTION
The  STANDBY/ON switch on this unit will not
completely shut off all power from the AC outlet.
Since the power cord serves as the main disconnect
device for the unit, you will need to unplug it from the
AC outlet to shut down all power. Therefore, make
sure the unit has been installed so that the power
cord can be easily unplugged from the AC outlet in
case of an accident. To avoid fire hazard, the power
cord should also be unplugged from the AC outlet
when left unused for a long period of time (for
example, when on vacation).

POWER-CORD CAUTION
Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the
plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power
cord when your hands are wet as this could cause a
short circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a
piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the
cord. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other
cords. The power cords should be routed such that they
are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord
can cause a fire or give you an electrical shock. Check
the power cord once in a while. When you find it
damaged, ask your nearest PIONEER authorized
service center or your dealer for a replacement.

Cautions on 3D Viewing
• If you should experience any fatigue or discomfort while viewing 3D images, stop viewing them.
• Children, particularly those under 6, may be more prone to sensitivity, so guardians should watch for
any signs of fatigue or discomfort.
• When viewing 3D images, rest periodically.
Extended viewing of 3D images without rest periods could cause fatigue or discomfort.
Condensation
If the player is moved suddenly from a cold place into a
warm room (in winter, for example) or if the
temperature in the room in which the player is installed
rises suddenly due to a heater, etc., water droplets
(condensation) may form inside (on operating parts and
the lens). When condensation is present, the player will
not operate properly and playback is not possible. Let
the player stand at room temperature for 1 or 2 hours
with the power turned on (the time depends on the
extent of condensation). The water droplets will
dissipate and playback will become possible.
Condensation can also occur in the summer if the
player is exposed to the direct wind from an
air-conditioner. If this happens, move the player to a
different place.

• Power cord
• Warranty card (European models only)
• Software license notice
• Operating instructions (this document)
Putting the batteries in the
remote control
The batteries included with the player have been provided
to allow you to check product operation and may not last
long. We recommend using alkaline batteries that have a
longer life.
WARNING
• Do not use or store batteries in direct sunlight or
other excessively hot place, such as inside a car or
near a heater. This can cause batteries to leak,
overheat, explode or catch fire. It can also reduce the
life or performance of batteries.
Caution
• Do not use any batteries other than the ones
specified. Also, do not use a new battery together with
an old one.
• When loading the batteries into the remote control,
set them in the proper direction, as indicated by the
polarity marks ( and ).
• When inserting the batteries, make sure not to
damage the springs on the battery’s  terminals.
This can cause batteries to leak or overheat.
• Do not heat batteries, disassemble them, or throw
them into flames or water.
• Batteries may have different voltages, even if they look
similar. Do not use different kinds of batteries
together.
• To prevent leakage of battery fluid, remove the
batteries if you do not plan to use the remote control
for a long period of time (1 month or more). If the fluid
should leak, wipe it carefully off the inside of the case,
then insert new batteries. If a battery should leak and
the fluid should get on your skin, flush it off with large
quantities of water.
• When disposing of used batteries, please comply with
governmental regulations or environmental public
institution’s rules that apply in your country/area.
1 Open the rear cover.
2 Insert the batteries (AAA/R03 x 2).

Additional information
Cautions on use
Moving the player
If you need to move this unit, first remove the disc if
there’s one loaded, and close the disc tray. Next, press
 STANDBY/ON to switch the power to standby,
checking that the POWER OFF indication on the front
panel display goes off. Wait at least 10 seconds. Lastly,
disconnect the power cord.
Never lift or move the unit during playback — discs rotate
at a high speed and may be damaged.
Place of installation
Select a stable place near the TV and AV system to which
the unit is connected.
Do not place the player on top of a TV or color monitor.
Keep it away from cassette decks or other components
easily affected by magnetism.
Avoid the following types of places:
• Places exposed to direct sunlight
• Humid or poorly ventilated places
• Extremely hot or cold places
• Places subject to vibration
• Places in which there is much dust or cigarette
smoke
• Places exposed to soot, steam or heat (in kitchens,
etc.)
 Do not place objects on top
Do not place objects on top of the player.
 Do not obstruct the ventilation
holes
Do not use the player on a shaggy rug, bed, or sofa, and
do not cover the player with a cloth, etc. Doing so will
prevent heat dissipation and could lead to damage.
 Keep away from heat
Do not place the player on top of an amplifier or other
device generating heat. When installing in a rack, to avoid
the heat generated by the amplifier and other devices,
place it on a shelf below the amplifier whenever possible.
Turn the power off when not
using the player
Depending on the conditions of the TV broadcast signals,
striped patterns may appear on the screen when the TV is
turned on while the player’s power is turned on. This is not
a malfunction with the player or TV. If this happens, turn
the player’s power off. In the same way, noise may be
heard in the sound of a radio.
Condensation
If the player is moved suddenly from a cold place into a
warm room (in winter, for example) or if the temperature
in the room in which the player is installed rises suddenly
due to a heater, etc., water droplets (condensation) may
form inside (on operating parts and the lens). When
condensation is present, the player will not operate
properly and playback is not possible. Let the player stand
at room temperature for 1 or 2 hours with the power
turned on (the time depends on the extent of
condensation). The water droplets will dissipate and
playback will become possible.
Condensation can also occur in the summer if the player
is exposed to the direct wind from an air-conditioner. If
this happens, move the player to a different place.
Cleaning the player
Normally, wipe the player with a soft cloth. For tough dirt,
apply some neutral detergent diluted in 5 to 6 parts water
to a soft cloth, wring out thoroughly, wipe off the dirt, then
wipe again with a dry cloth.
Note that getting alcohol, thinner, benzene or insecticide
on the player could cause the print and coating to peel off.
Also, avoid leaving rubber or vinyl products in contact
with the player for long periods of time, as this could
damage the cabinet.
When using chemical-impregnated wipes, etc., read the
wipe’s cautions carefully.
Unplug the power cord from the power outlet when
cleaning the player.
Caution for when the unit is
installed in a rack with a glass
door
Do not press the  OPEN/CLOSE on the remote control
to open the disc tray while the glass door is closed. The
door will hamper the movement of the disc tray, and the
unit could be damaged.
