If the AC plug of this unit does not match the AC
outlet you want to use, the plug must be removed
and appropriate one fitted. Replacement and
mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of
this unit should be performed only by qualified
service personnel. If connected to an AC outlet, the
cut-off plug can cause severe electrical shock. Make
sure it is properly disposed of after removal.
The equipment should be disconnected by removing
the mains plug from the wall socket when left unused
for a long period of time (for example, when on
vacation).

This equipment is not waterproof. To prevent a fire or
shock hazard, do not place any container filled with
liquid near this equipment (such as a vase or flower
pot) or expose it to dripping, splashing, rain or
moisture.

WARNING
Before plugging in for the first time, read the following
section carefully.
The voltage of the available power supply differs
according to country or region. Be sure that the
power supply voltage of the area where this unit
will be used meets the required voltage (e.g., 230 V
or 120 V) written on the rear panel.

VENTILATION CAUTION
When installing this unit, make sure to leave space
around the unit for ventilation to improve heat radiation
(at least 10 cm at top, 10 cm at rear, and 10 cm at each
side).
WARNING
Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for
ventilation to ensure reliable operation of the product,
and to protect it from overheating. To prevent fire
hazard, the openings should never be blocked or
covered with items (such as newspapers, table-cloths,
curtains) or by operating the equipment on thick carpet
or a bed.
D3-4-2-1-7b*_A1_En
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

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.

What’s in the box
• Remote control x 1
• Video/audio cable (yellow/white/red plugs) x 1
(BDP-150 only)
• AAA/R03 dry cell batteries x 2
• Warranty card (European and Russian models only)
• Power cord

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.

• When playing a video distribution service on a
network or PC contents stored on a medium.
• The Pioneer AV receiver with Stream Smoother Link
function is connected to this player through an HDMI
cable and the player’s setting is set as shown below
(page 42). Also refer to the instructions for the AV
receiver.

 About the PQLS function (Only for
BDP-450)
PQLS (Precision Quartz Lock System) is a digital audio
transfer control technology using the HDMI control
function. The player’s output signals are controlled from
the AV receiver to achieve high sound quality playback
using the receiver’s quartz oscillator. This eliminates the
influence of the jitter generated during signal transfer
which can adversely affect the sound quality.
• This player supports the functions below.
– The “PQLS 2ch Audio” function that is activated
when playing music CDs (CD-DAs)
– The “PQLS Multi Surround” function that is
activated when playing all discs (BDs, DVDs, etc.)
with linear PCM audio output
– The “PQLS Bitstream” function that is activated
when playing with bitstream audio output
• The various PQLS functions are activated when a
Pioneer AV receiver supporting the PQLS functions is
connected directly to the HDMI OUT terminal with an
HDMI cable and the player’s settings are set as
shown below (page 42).
Control: On
• Also refer to the AV receiver’s operating instructions.
• See the Pioneer website for AV receivers supporting
the PQLS function.
Caution
• The PQLS function may stop working when the video
output resolution is switched. The PQLS function will
start working again once playback is stopped then
restarted.
• When the PQLS 2ch function is activated, the output
from the player’s VIDEO OUTPUT jacks may not have
the proper colors. If this happens, connect the TV and
AV receiver’s HDMI terminals to view the picture.
• Turn on the power of the AV receiver connected to the
HDMI OUT terminal, then start playback of the disc.
Note
• PQLS indicator on the player’s front panel display
lights when the PQLS function is activated (page 15).

About how digital audio formats are output
Note
• Depending on the disc, the number of channels may differ.
• Depending on the connected HDMI device, the HDMI output audio and number of channels may differ.
• The HDMI output audio and number of channels may differ when Resolution is set to 480I or 480P, as well as
when set to Auto if the connected device only supports 480i/480p.
• Three types of audio are recorded on BD video discs.
– Primary audio: The main sound.
– Secondary audio: Additional sound added supplementarily, such as comments by directors, actors, etc.
– Interactive audio: Sounds such as clicks heard when operations are performed. The interactive audio differs
from disc to disc.

audio and interactive audio are
converted into PCM audio then
converted again into Dolby
Digital audio or DTS audio and
output simultaneously.1

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.
