On power sources
• The player is not disconnected from the AC
power source (mains) as long as it is
connected to the wall outlet, even if the
player itself has been turned off.
• Disconnect the player from the wall outlet if
you are not going to use the player for a long
time. To disconnect the AC power cord
(mains lead), grasp the plug itself; never pull
the cord.
• Observe following points to prevent the AC
power cord (mains lead) being damaged. Do
not use the AC power cord (mains lead) if it
is damaged, as doing so may result in an
electric shock or fire.
– Do not pinch the AC power cord (mains
lead) between the player and wall, shelf,
etc.
– Do not put anything heavy on the AC
power cord (mains lead) or pull on the AC
power cord (mains lead) itself.

as other adaptors may cause a malfunction.
• Do not disassemble or reverse-engineer.

On watching 3D video images
(BDP-S5500/S4500 only)
Some people may experience discomfort
(such as eye strain, fatigue, or nausea) while
watching 3D video images. Sony recommends
that all viewers take regular breaks while
watching 3D video images. The length and
frequency of necessary breaks will vary from
person to person. You must decide what works
best. If you experience any discomfort, you
should stop watching the 3D video images
until the discomfort ends; consult a doctor if
you believe necessary. You should also
review (i) the instruction manual and/or the
caution message of any other device used
with, or Blu-ray Disc contents played with this
product and (ii) our website
(http://www.sony-europe.com/myproduct/)
for the latest information. The vision of young
children (especially those under six years old)
is still under development. Consult your
doctor (such as a pediatrician or eye doctor)
before allowing young children to watch 3D
video images.
Adults should supervise young children to
ensure they follow the recommendations
listed above.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your player, please consult your
nearest Sony dealer.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: This player is capable of holding
a still video image or on-screen display
image on your television screen
indefinitely. If you leave the still video
image or on-screen display image
displayed on your TV for an extended
period of time you risk permanent damage
to your television screen. Plasma display
panel televisions and projection
televisions are susceptible to this.

files on DATA CDs smoothly. It is
recommended to play such files using
DATA DVDs or DATA BDs.
Since communication via the wireless
LAN function is established by radio
waves, the wireless signal may be
susceptible to interception. To protect
wireless communication, this player
supports various security functions. Be
sure to correctly configure the security
settings in accordance with your network
environment.
No Security
Although you can easily make settings,
anyone can intercept wireless
communication or intrude into your
wireless network, even without any
sophisticated tools. Keep in mind that
there is a risk of unauthorised access or
interception of data.
WEP
WEP applies security to
communications to prevent outsiders
from intercepting communications or
intruding into your wireless network.
WEP is a legacy security technology that
enables older devices, which do not
support TKIP/AES, to be connected.
WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK (TKIP)
TKIP is a security technology developed
to correct the deficiencies of WEP. TKIP
assures a higher security level than
WEP.
WPA-PSK (AES), WPA2-PSK (AES)
AES is a security technology that uses an
advanced security method that is distinct
from WEP and TKIP.
AES assures a higher security level than
WEP or TKIP.
