Precautions
On safety
• To prevent fire or shock

filled with liquids, such as
vases, on the player, or place
the player near water, such as

Should any solid object or
liquid fall into the cabinet,
unplug the player and have it

personnel before operating it
any further.
• Do not touch the mains lead
(AC power cord) with wet
hands. Doing so may cause an
electric shock.
On placement
• Place the player in a location
with adequate ventilation to
prevent heat build-up in the

from a cold to a warm location,
or is placed in a very damp
room, moisture may condense
on the lenses inside the player.
Should this occur, the player
may not operate properly. In
this case, remove the disc and
leave the player turned on for
about half an hour until the
moisture evaporates.
• Keep the player and the discs
away from equipment with
strong magnets, such as
microwave ovens, or large
loudspeakers.

Hooking Up the Player
Check that you have the following items.
• Audio/video cord (phono plug ×3) (1)
• Mains leads (AC power cords) (2)
• Remote commander (remote) (1)
• Size AA (R6) batteries (2)
Follow steps 1 through 9 to hook up and

Step 1: Connecting to Your TV
The player has the following video jacks. Connect the player to your TV according to the input
jack on your TV.
If you connect the player to your TV using an HDMI cable, you can enjoy high quality digital
pictures and sound through the HDMI OUT jack.
b
• Plug in cables securely to prevent unwanted
noise.
• Refer to the instructions supplied with the
components to be connected.
• You cannot connect this player to a TV that does
not have a video input jack.
• Do not apply too much pressure on the connecting
cables. Pushing against the cabinet wall, etc., may
damage the cable.
To connect to a TV with DVI input
Use an HDMI-DVI converter cable (not
supplied). A DVI jack will not accept audio
signals, so you need to use another audio
connection in addition to this connection
(page 23).
Furthermore, you cannot connect the HDMI
OUT jack to DVI jacks that are not HDCP
compliant (e.g., DVI jacks on PC displays).

sound through the HDMI OUT jack.
If you connect a Sony TV that is compatible with the “Control for HDMI” (BRAVIA Sync)
function (page 56), refer to the operating instructions supplied with the TV.
If you connect a 1080/24p- or 1080p-compatible TV, use a High Speed HDMI cable.
Notes on connecting to the HDMI OUT jack
Observe the following as improper handling
may damage the HDMI OUT jack and the
connector.
• Carefully align the HDMI OUT jack on the
rear of the player and the HDMI connector
by checking their shapes. Make sure the
connector is not upside down or tilted.
• Be sure to disconnect an HDMI cable when
moving the player.
• If you place the player on a cabinet with an
HDMI cable connected, do not apply too
much pressure to the cabinet wall. It may
damage the HDMI OUT jack or the HDMI
cable.
• When connecting or disconnecting, do not
screw in or rotate the HDMI connector.

Step 2: Connecting to Your AV Amplifier (Receiver)
AV amplifier (receiver) and cable requirements differ as follows, depending on the source.
To enjoy BD high quality sound, set “BD Audio Setting” to “Direct” in the “Audio Settings”
setup (page 71).
To enjoy secondary audio and interactive audio, set “BD Audio Setting” to “Mix” in the “Audio
Settings” setup (page 71).

When “BD Audio Setting” is set to “Direct” in
the “Audio Settings” setup, audio signals
decoded by the AV amplifier (receiver) are
output.
*2
When “BD Audio Setting” is set to “Direct” in
the “Audio Settings” setup, the HD Audio
(Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD
High Resolution Audio, and DTS-HD Master
Audio) signal decoded by the player is output.
When “BD Audio Setting” is set to “Mix” in the
“Audio Settings” setup, the DTS-HD audio is
output as 5.1 channel DTS-decoded audio.
z
• The supported audio formats of BDs/DVDs are
specified on the back of each package.
• For details on audio output signals, see “Audio
Output Signals” on page 89.
b
• When you connect the player to your AV
amplifier (receiver) using an HDMI cable, do one
of the following:
– Connect your AV amplifier (receiver) to your
TV using an HDMI cable, or
– Connect the player to your TV using a video
cable other than an HDMI cable (component
video cable, S-video cord, or audio/video cord).
• If you connect a component that does not conform
to the selected audio signal, a loud noise (or no
sound) will come from the speakers, which could
damage your ears or the speakers.

Step 3: Inserting an
External Memory
To enjoy additional content (such as
BonusView/BD-Live) on certain Blu-ray
Disc titles, you will need to use an external
memory (not supplied).
Insert the external memory device (1 GB or
larger USB flash memory, such as Sony
USM2GL or USM2GH) into the EXT slot as
your local storage.
Insert the external memory into the EXT
slot as far as it will go.
Check that the EXT indicator lights up in the
front panel display when turning the player
on.
To remove the external memory
1 Press [/1 to turn the player off.
2 Pull the external memory out from the
EXT slot.
b
• Do not connect anything other than a USB flash
memory, such as an HDD, etc., to the EXT slot.
• Insert the external memory straight. If you force
the external memory into the slot, this will cause
damage to both the external memory and the
player.
• Keep the external memory away from small
children to prevent them from accidentally
swallowing it.
• Do not apply too much pressure to the external
memory in the slot, as it may cause a malfunction.
• The Sony USM2GL (available as of September
2009) is recommended.
• Other USB flash devices may support this
function. However we cannot guarantee
compatibility with all USB flash memory
devices.
• When inserting a USB flash memory, check the
insertion direction before inserting it.
• Some USB flash memory devices may stick out
from the EXT slot. Do not force into the slot or
apply pressure to the protruding portion of the
USB flash memory.
• To avoid data corruption or damage to the
external memory, turn the player off when
inserting or removing the external memory.
• If the EXT indicator does not light up, turn the
player off, remove and re-insert the external
memory, then turn the player on again.
• The external memory is used as the local storage
for BonusView/BD-Live. Insert a blank external
memory, or one containing nothing other than
photo or music files, to avoid corrupting the
contained data.

Step 4: Connecting to
the Network
Connect the LAN (100) terminal of the player
to your Internet source using a network cable
to receive disc information or update the
player’s software. You can also enjoy the
BD-Live function (page 39).
1 Connect the LAN (100) terminal of the
player to your Internet source.
Methods to connect to your Internet
source include:
• Connecting to a broadband router
directly
• Connecting via a wireless LAN router
Refer also to the instructions supplied
with the broadband router or the wireless
LAN router.
2 Make the appropriate settings in
“Internet Settings” under the
“Network Settings” setup (page 78).
To update the player’s software using the
network
See “Network Update” (page 64) and
“Software Update Notification” (page 77).
To enjoy the BD-Live function
See “Enjoying BonusView/BD-Live”
(page 39).
b
• Do not connect a phone line to the LAN (100)
terminal, as it may cause a malfunction.
• For optimal performance of BD-Live functions,
we recommend using an Internet connection with
an effective speed of 1 Mbps or greater.
• To allow Internet connections from BD contents,
select “Allow” in “BD Internet Connection”
during Easy Setup (page 31). To change the
setting, see page 75.
