How to Proceed in This
Manual
DVD is an incredible format that presents the highest
quality digital audio and video available today. The
amount of information that can be recorded onto a DVD
disc is remarkable, allowing it to offer numerous
functions and features available with no other format.
Because using the DVD player and DVDs may be
confusing at first, following the order below should help
you get through the important stages of getting set up
so you can start using your player as soon as possible.
Get familiar with the player.
Refer to the section “Before Using” on page 8 to
confirm that all the accessories were included with the
player. If you are new to DVD, it might be beneficial for
you to go through the “Names and Functions” section
starting on page 10 to get familiar with the parts and
buttons on the main unit and remote control as they will
be referred to throughout this manual.
There is also a list of terms that can be found on page 54
if you are having trouble understanding some of the
terminology associated with DVD.
Make the necessary connections.
No entertainment system seems to be set up exactly
the same way. The “Making Connections” section
starting on page 15 shows how video and audio
connections may be made to suit your home
entertainment system.
Set up the necessary player
menus.
Before you can begin to enjoy the benefits of the DVD
format, you should set up the player to output the video
and audio information that corresponds to your system.
The section “Setting Up the Player” starting on page 19
explains how to use the Setup screen menus as well as
how to make the necessary initial adjustments. The
Setup screen menus are used in a number of functions.
Learning the procedure for operating the menus will
make using this player much easier and more enjoyable.
Play a disc.
When all the connections and setups have been made,
you are ready to play a DVD, Video CD, or CD with the
player. The section “Getting Started Using Your DVD
Player” starting on page 24 outlines the basic player
operations.
Enjoy the many features available.
Once you are comfortable using the basic player
functions, you are ready to take advantage of the various
options DVD and this player have to offer. The section
“Advanced Functions” starting on page 33 describes
how to use the features available on many DVDs.
Differences in Disc
Composition
DVD
DVDs are divided into units referred to as titles, and
titles are divided into chapters. A DVD which contains a
movie may have only one title with many or no chapter
divisions. Karaoke DVDs may have many titles, assigning
a title to each song on the disc. Menu screens do not
belong to any title.
DVD player functions generally apply to titles on a disc or
chapters within a selected title. The player functions
available may also vary from title to title, depending on
the disc. When discs have a unique title division, it
should be noted that search and program functions may
be affected.
Video CD/CD
Video CDs and CDs are divided into units referred to as
tracks (Video CD tracks may also be referred to as
scenes). One song generally corresponds to one track.
Some tracks are further divided into units referred to as
indexes. Video CDs with PBC (Playback Control) also
contain menus recorded on the disc which enable easy
access to the contents of the disc.
When played back on a DVD player, both Video CDs and
CDs are considered to be a single title, regardless of the
number of tracks.

Making
Connections
Connection Guide
The illustration on this page shows the basic setup using
the audio and video cords included with this player. Use
this illustration as a guide to setting up your home
system.
An explanation of each type of audio and video
connection available can be found on the following
pages. To determine the best audio and video
connection setup for your system, refer to the manuals
supplied with the components you are making
connections to.
In addition to making physical connections to your TV or
monitor, it is also necessary to assign the TV screen size

or monitor (page 22).
Notes
• When making connections to this unit or when changing
connections, check that the unit is in standby by pressing
STANDBY/ON, and unplug the power cord from the power
outlet.
• The analog video output on this player uses copy protect
circuitry to prevent the video playback on DVDs from being
copied. If you connect the player to a TV via a VCR, or record
and play back the contents of a disc with a VCR, the playback
picture may not be normal.
Connecting Your DVD Player
Unlike any other audiovisual media format, DVD offers a
wide array of audio and video output options which
allows playback to be enjoyed in any number of system
configurations from a standard TV with stereo audio
input to a home theater system with a projection
monitor and full surround sound capabilities.

System Control Connections
Using a commercially available cord with a mini plug (3.5
mm dia. with no resistance) to connect this player’s
CONTROL IN jack to the CONTROL OUT jack of another
PIONEER component bearing the Î mark, you can
control the player as though it were a component in a
system (system control).
• If you connect for system control, you cannot operate
the player directly. Point the remote control unit at the
component (AV amplifier, etc.) connected to the
CONTROL OUT jack to operate.
• When controlling as a system, be sure to make a
connection to the amplifier using an audio or video
cord, even when using only digital components.
• For details, refer to the operation manuals of the
connected components.
TV SYSTEM switch (except for U.S. and
Canadian models)
Video output changes as follows according to the
playback disc‘s recorded format.
NTSC = PAL, PAL = NTSC conversion is possible on
Video CDs. PAL = NTSC conversion is not possible on
DVDs. When the TV SYSTEM switch is set to the AUTO
position, the disc’s format will be output as is. When a
CD or disc is not loaded, the previous video output
format will be selected.
About MOD. (Modulation) PAL
• SHRINK
Most models of the newly developed countdown PAL
TV system detect 50 Hz (PAL)/60 Hz (NTSC) and
automatically switch vertical amplitude, resulting in a
display without vertical shrinkage.
• If your PAL TV does not have a V-Hold control, you
may not be able to view NTSC disc because the
picture may roll. If the TV has a V-Hold control, adjust
it until the picture stops rolling. On some TVs, the
picture may shrink vertically, leaving black bands at
the top and bottom of the screen. This is not a
malfunction; it is caused by the NTSC = PAL
conversion.

Setting the TV Screen Size
The width-to-height ratio of conventional TVs is 4:3,
while the width-to-height ratio of wide screen and
high-definition TVs is 16:9. This width-to-height ratio is
called the aspect ratio.
When viewing software recorded in different aspect
ratios, the image’s height to width ratio can be switched
to match the TV or monitor being used.
Make changes to the TV screen size in the [TV Screen]
setting in the Setup screen Video menu.
Settings: 4:3 (Letter Box)
4:3 (Pan & Scan)
16:9 (Wide)*
* Factory Setting
Notes
• Whether the aspect can be switched or not depends on the
disc. Please refer to the information written on the disc jacket,
etc.
• Some discs may not include the screen format selected in the
[TV screen] setting. When this occurs, the standard TV screen
format available on the disc is automatically selected.
Differences in screen sizes and DVD formats
The number of screen size formats currently available
can be somewhat confusing. If set incorrectly, the video
presentation may not appear as it should. The following
diagrams and descriptions are intended to help you set
your TV screen size in a way that will allow you to fully
enjoy the digital video of DVD.
The settings in the [TV Screen] setting are perhaps most
applicable when the DVD you are watching is
programmed in the wide screen format. If you have a
standard TV, select either “4:3 Letter Box” or “4:3 Pan &
Scan” based on your personal preference. If you have a
wide screen TV, select “Wide”.

Additional
Information
NEVER PLAY CRACKED OR WARPED DISCS
The disc revolves in the player at high speed when it is
played. Never play a cracked, scratched or warped disc.
This may damage the player or cause it to malfunction.
NEVER USE DISCS WITH SPECIAL SHAPES
CD’s with special shapes (heart-shaped CDs, octagonal
CDs, etc.) cannot be played on this set.
Attempting to do so may damage the set. Do not use
such CDs.
AFTER USING DISCS, STORE THEM UPRIGHT
After playing a disc, always remove it from the player
and return it to its jacket. Then store it standing upright
away from heat and humidity.
• Store discs carefully. If you store discs at an angle, or
stacked on top of each other, discs may become
warped even when in their jackets.
• Do not leave discs in locations such as the seat of a
car, which may become excessively hot.
CAUTION WHEN USING THE DISC
All rights reserved.
Unauthorized public performance, broadcasting or
copying is a violation of applicable laws.
Notes on using optical cables
• Do not route cords around sharp angles. When
storing, wind the cords so that they have a diameter
of at least 15 cm (6 in.).
• When connecting, push all the way into the terminal.
• Do not use cords with a length of over 3 m.
• If moisture or dust has collected on the plug, wipe it
with a soft cloth before connecting.
Disc Care
HOW TO HOLD DISCS
When loading or removing discs, try not to touch their
playing surfaces.
CLEANING
Fingerprints or other dirt on the disc may affect sound
and picture quality.
To clean your discs, use a soft clean cloth to wipe them.
If necessary, moisten a soft cloth with diluted neutral
detergent to remove heavy dirt or fingerprints.
Discs must not be cleaned with record cleaning sprays,
or static prevention sprays, etc. Also do not use volatile
liquids such as benzine, or thinner, etc.
LENS CLEANER
The player's pickup lens should not become dirty in
normal use, but if for some reason it should malfunction
due to soiling, contact your nearest PIONEER authorized
service center. Lens cleaners are commercially available,
but special care should be exercised in their use since
some may cause damage to the lens.
Gently wipe from the
inside toward the outer
edge.
Do not wipe in a circular
direction (Concentric
scratches in the disc groove
tend to cause noise.)

For Proper and Long Use of
This Unit
DO NOT MOVE THE UNIT DURING PLAYBACK
During playback, the disc rotates at high speed. Do NOT
lift or move the unit during playback. Doing so may
damage the disc.
WHEN MOVING THE UNIT
When changing places of installation or packing the unit
for moving, be sure to remove the disc and return the
disc table to its original position in the player. Then,
press STANDBY/ON and switch the power to
standby. Check that the “–OFF–” indication on the
display goes off, then disconnect the power cord.
Moving this unit with the disc loaded may result in
damage to this unit.
INSTALLATION
• Select a stable place to the side of a TV set or stereo
system to be connected to the unit.
• When using the unit with a stereo system, install the
speakers a little bit away from the TV.
• Do NOT install the unit on top of a TV or color monitor.
Install the unit away from equipment that may be
affected by magnetism, such as a cassette deck.
• Do NOT place objects on top of the unit.
AVOID INSTALLING IN A PLACE THAT IS:
• Exposed to direct sunlight
• Exposed to humidity or where ventilation is poor
• Extremely hot or cold
• Exposed to vibration
• Exposed to dust
• Exposed to oily smoke, steam or heat (for example, a
kitchen)
DO NOT BLOCK VENTS
Do NOT use the player on top of a long-fibered carpet,
bed or sofa, and do not cover it with a cloth, etc. This
will prevent heat radiation and could result in damage.
AVOID HEAT
Do NOT place the unit on equipment which generates
heat, such as an amplifier.
When installing the unit in a rack, place it on the lowest
shelf possible (however, not where it is exposed to dust)
and separated from the amplifier to avoid the heat
generated by the amplifier or other audio equipment.
CAUTION: WHEN PLACING THE UNIT IN A
STEREO RACK WITH GLASS DOORS
Be sure there is ample space between the unit and
the glass doors when opening the disc table using
the remote control. If the disc table opens against
strong resistance, such as a closed glass door,
damage to the unit may result.
CONDENSATION
Moisture may form in the operating section of the player
if the player is brought from cool surroundings into a
warm room or if the temperature of the room rises
suddenly. When this happens, the player’s performance
will be impaired.
To prevent this, let the player stand in its new
surroundings for about an hour before switching it on, or
make sure that the room temperature rises gradually.
Condensation may also form during the summer if the
player is exposed to the breeze from an air conditioner.
In such cases, change the location of the player.
SWITCH POWER TO STANDBY WHEN NOT
USING THE UNIT
Depending on the strength of the TV or radio broadcast
signal, having the TV or radio on while power to the unit
is on may result in stripes on the TV screen or noise.
However, this is not a malfunction of this unit or the TV
or radio. In such a case, switch the power of the unit to
standby.
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 in such a way 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.
