Precautions
This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits set out in the EMC
Directive using a connection cable shorter
than 3 metres.
On placement
• Place the player in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the
player.
• Do not place the player on a soft surface
such as a rug that might block the ventilation
holes.
• Do not install this player in a confined space,
such as a bookshelf or similar unit.
• Do not place the player in a location near
heat sources, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, or mechanical
shock.
• Do not place the player outdoors, in
vehicles, on ships, or on other vessels.
• If the player is brought directly 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.
• Do not install the player in an inclined
position. It is designed to be operated in a
horizontal position only.
• Do not place metal objects in front of the
front panel. It may limit reception of radio
waves.
• Do not place the player in a place where
medical equipment is in use. It may cause a
malfunction of medical instruments.
• If you use a pacemaker or other medical
device, consult your physician or the
manufacturer of your medical device before
using the wireless LAN function.
• Do not place heavy or unstable objects on
the player.
• Do not place any objects other than discs on
the disc tray. Doing so may cause damage to
the player or the object.

• Take out any discs from the tray when you
move the player. If you don’t, the disc may
be damaged.
• Disconnect the AC power cord and all other
cables from the player when you move the
player.
On power sources
• The player is not disconnected from the AC
power source 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,
grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord.
• Observe following points to prevent the AC
power cord being damaged. Do not use the
AC power cord if it is damaged, as doing so
may result in an electric shock or fire.
– Do not pinch the AC power cord between
the player and wall, shelf, etc.
– Do not put anything heavy on the AC
power cord or pull on the AC power cord
itself.
On adjusting volume
Do not turn up the volume while listening to a
section with very low level inputs or no audio
signals. Your ears and the speakers may be
damaged when the sound level reaches the
peak.
On cleaning
Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a
soft cloth. Do not use any type of abrasive pad,
scouring powder or solvent such as alcohol or
benzine.
On cleaning discs, disc/lens cleaners
Do not use cleaning discs or disc/lens cleaners
(including wet or spray types). These may
cause the apparatus to malfunction.
On replacement of parts
In the events that this player is repaired,
repaired parts may be collected for reuse or
recycling purposes.
On connecting to the HDMI OUT jack

by checking their shapes. Make sure the
connector is not upside down or tilted.
• Be sure to disconnect the HDMI cable when
moving the player.
• Hold the HDMI connector straight when
connecting or disconnecting the HDMI
cable. Do not twist or force the HDMI
connector into the HDMI OUT jack.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your player, please consult your
nearest Sony dealer.

sophisticated tools. Keep in mind that
there is a risk of unauthorized 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.
