the label before playing.
Precautions
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall into
the cabinet, unplug the player and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
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.
• If you are not going to use the player
for a long time, be sure to disconnect
the player from the wall outlet. To
disconnect the AC power cord (mains
lead), grasp the plug itself; never pull
the cord.
On placement
• Place the player in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent heat
build-up in 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.
• When you move the player, take out
any discs. If you don’t, the disc may be
damaged.
On adjusting volume
Do not turn up the volume while
listening to a section with very low level
inputs or no audio signals. If you do, the
speakers may be damaged when a peak
level section is played.

Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls
with a soft cloth slightly moistened with
a mild detergent solution. Do not use any
type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or
solvent such as alcohol or benzine.
On cleaning discs, disc/lens

Notes
• Notes about BD-REs/BD-Rs, DVD+RWs/DVD+Rs, DVD-RWs/
DVD-Rs, or CD-Rs/CD-RWs
Some BD-REs/BD-Rs, DVD+RWs/DVD+Rs, DVD-RWs/
DVD-Rs, or CD-Rs/CD-RWs cannot be played on this player
due to the recording quality or physical condition of the disc,
or the characteristics of the recording device and authoring
software.
The DVD disc will not play if it has not been correctly
finalized. For more information, refer to the operating
instructions for the recording device. Note that some playback
functions may not work with some DVD+RWs/DVD+Rs, even
if they have been correctly finalized. In this case, view the disc
by normal playback.
• Music discs encoded with copyright protection technologies
This product is designed to playback discs that conform to the
Compact Disc (CD) standard. Recently, various music discs
encoded with copyright protection technologies are being
marketed by some record companies. Please be aware that
among those discs, there are some that do not conform to the
CD standard and may not be playable by this product.
• Note on DualDiscs
A DualDisc is a two sided disc product which mates DVD
recorded material on one side with digital audio material on the
other side.
However, since the audio material side does not conform to the
Compact Disc (CD) standard, playback on this product is not
guaranteed.
• Note about double-layer DVDs
The playback pictures and sound may be momentarily
interrupted when the layers switch.
• Note about 8 cm BD-REs/8 cm BD-Rs
Some 8 cm BD-REs/8 cm BD-Rs cannot be played on this
player.
About playback of discs recorded in
AVCHD format
This player can play AVCHD format discs.
What is the AVCHD format?
The AVCHD format is a high definition digital video camera
format used to record SD (standard definition) or HD (high
definition) signals of either the 1080i specification*1
or the 720p
specification*2
on DVDs, using efficient data compression
coding technology. The MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format is adopted
to compress video data, and the Dolby Digital or Linear PCM
system is used to compress audio data. The MPEG-4 AVC/
H.264 format is capable of compressing images at higher
efficiency than that of the conventional image compressing
format. The MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format enables a high
definition (HD) video signal shot on a digital video camera
recorder to be recorded on DVD discs, in the same way as it
would be for a standard definition (SD) television signal.
“AVCHD” and the AVCHD logo are trademarks of Matsushita Electric
Industrial Co., Ltd. and Sony Corporation.
*1
A high definition specification which utilizes 1080 effective scanning
lines and the interlace system.
*2 A high definition specification which utilizes 720 effective scanning
lines and the progressive system.
Notes
• Some AVCHD format discs may not play, depending on the recording
condition.
• The AVCHD format disc will not play if it has not been correctly
finalized.

BD/DVD region code
Your player has a region code printed on the back of the unit and
only will play BD-ROM/DVD VIDEOs (playback only) labelled
with identical region codes. This system is used to protect
copyrights.
DVD VIDEOs labelled will also play on this player.
Depending on the BD-ROM/DVD VIDEO, there may be no region
code indication, even though playing the BD-ROM/DVD VIDEO is
prohibited by area restrictions.
Note on playback operations of BDs/
DVDs
Some playback operations of BDs/DVDs may be intentionally
set by software producers. Since this player plays BDs/DVDs
according to the disc contents the software producers designed,
some playback features may not be available. Also, refer to the
instructions supplied with the BDs/DVDs.
Copyrights
This product incorporates copyright protection technology that
is protected by U.S. patents and other intellectual property rights.
Use of this copyright protection technology must be authorized
by Macrovision, and is intended for home and other limited
viewing uses only unless otherwise authorized by Macrovision.
Reverse engineering or disassembly is prohibited.
Main Features
Experience the high definition (HD) quality audio/video output
and the library function of this Blu-ray Disc Player.
BD-ROM playback
BD-ROM is a next generation optical disc format in the HD era.
Featuring massive storage capacity of 25 to 50 GB (five times
larger than a DVD) and a high-speed transfer rate of up to 54
Mbps, the format offers not only uncompromised HD quality
video*1
*2
, but also enables rich bonus content on a single disc
and HD quality audio up to 8ch, and interactive operability.
*1
A compatible HD display device is necessary to enjoy the same
quality.
*2
Some discs allow viewing only with an HDMI connection.
24p True Cinema
Movies shot with a film camera consist of 24 frames per second.
Since conventional televisions (both CRT and flat panels)
display frames either at 1/60 or 1/50 second intervals, the 24
frames do not appear at an even pace.
When connected to a TV with 24p capabilities, the player
displays each frame at 1/24 second intervals — the same interval
originally shot with the film camera, thus faithfully reproducing
the original cinema image.
HDMI Control (‘BRAVIA’ Theatre Sync)
‘BRAVIA’ Theatre Sync Function makes operations simple by
connecting Sony components that are compatible with the
HDMI Control function with an HDMI cord (not supplied).
BD-J application
The BD-ROM format supports Java for interactive functions.
“BD-J” offers content providers almost unlimited functionality
when creating interactive BD-ROM titles*.
Java and all Java-based trademarks and logos are trademarks or
registered trademarks of Sun Microsystems, Inc. in the U.S. and
other countries.
Esmertec and Jbed are trademarks or registered trademarks of
Esmertec AG.
© 2000-2007 Esmertec AG
* This player does not support downloadable BD-J content.
Support of uncompressed multi-channel Linear
PCM
In combination with a compatible AV amplifier, the player can
output up to 8ch Linear PCM surround sound*. With a non-
compatible amplifier, the player can output 5.1ch analog signals
from its 5.1CH OUTPUT jack for high quality audio enjoyment.
* Note that the DIGITAL OUT (COAXIAL or OPTICAL) jack does not
output 8ch signals. You will need an HDMI cord and an HDMI-
compatible device that support 8ch signals.
AVCHD format disc playback
The player supports AVCHD format files–high definition
recordings made on AVCHD-compatible camcorders. Your high
definition personal archive is readily playable in HD quality.
