• Install this unit so that the mains
lead can be unplugged from the
wall socket immediately in the
event of trouble.
Notes About the Discs
• To keep the disc clean, handle
the disc by its edge. Do not
touch the surface.
Dust, fingerprints, or scratches
on the disc may cause it to
malfunction.
• Do not expose the disc to
direct sunlight or heat sources
such as hot air ducts, or leave it
in a car parked in direct
sunlight as the temperature
may rise considerably inside
the car.
• After playing, store the disc in
its case.
• Clean the disc with a cleaning
cloth. Wipe the disc from the
centre out.
• Do not use solvents such as
benzine, thinner,
commercially available disc/
lens cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for vinyl LPs.

• Do not touch the AC power
cord (mains lead) with wet
hands. Doing so may cause an

Step 1: Connecting to Your TV
About video/HDMI OUT jacks
The player has the following video jacks. Connect the player to your TV according to the input
jack on your TV.
When connecting the player to your TV using the 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). The DVI jack will not accept any
audio signals, so you have to use another
audio connection in addition to this
connection (page 19).
Furthermore, you cannot connect the HDMI
OUT jack to DVI jacks that are not HDCP
compliant (e.g., DVI jacks on PC displays).

Step 3: Inserting the
External Memory
To enjoy additional content (such as
BonusView) on certain Blu-ray Disc titles,
you will need to use external memory.
Insert the external memory device (1 GB or
larger USB flash memory, such as Sony
USM1GH) into the EXT slot as your local
storage.
Insert the external memory in the V
direction 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 enjoy BonusView
See “Enjoying BonusView” (page 32).
To remove the external memory
1 Press [/1 to turn the player off.
2 Pull out the external memory 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 the external memory.
• Do not apply too much pressure to the external
memory in the slot, as it may cause a malfunction.
• We recommend use of the Sony USM1GH
available as of April 2008.
• Other USB flash devices may support this
function. However we cannot guarantee
compatibility with all USB flash memories.
• When inserting a USB flash memory other than
Sony USM1GH, check the insertion direction
before inserting it.
• Depending on the USB flash memory, it 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.
• When the EXT indicator does not light up, turn
the player off, remove and re-insert the external
memory, then turn the player on again.
• Do not insert the external memory that contains
photo or music files to avoid corrupting the
external memory data.
