Problems with condensation
Condensation may form inside the player if it is
brought into a warm room from outside, or if
the temperature of the room rises quickly.
Although this won’t damage the player, it may
temporarily impair performance. You should
leave it to adjust to the warmer temperature for
about an hour before switching on.
Moving the system unit
If you need to move the main unit, first remove
a disc if there’s one in the player, then press
STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn the
system off. Wait for GOOD BYE to disappear
from the display, then unplug the power
Never lift or move the unit during
playback — discs rotate at high speeds and
may be damaged.
Screen sizes and disc formats
DVD-Video discs come in different screen
aspects, ranging from TV programs, which are
generally 4:3, to CinemaScope widescreen
, with an aspect ratio of up to about 7:3.
Televisions also come in different aspect ratios;
‘standard’ 4:3 and widescreen 16:9.
Resetting the system
Use this procedure to reset all system settings
to the factory default. Use the front panel
controls to do this.
1 Switch the system on.
2 Press the DVD/CD button and select DVD.
Make sure the disc tray is empty.
3 Press and hold the
button for about
eight seconds until the display shows ‘MEM
4 Press the
MEM CLR will be displayed in the front panel
display and the player switches into standby.
5 Press the STANDBY/ON.
All the system’s settings are now reset.
1 Unplugging the unit before GOOD BYE disappears from the display may cause the system to return to the factory settings.
2 Many widescreen discs override the system’s settings so that the disc is shown in letterbox format regardless of the setting.
Set to 4:3 (Letter Box), widescreen
discs are shown with black bars top
Set to 4:3 (Pan&Scan), widescreen
discs are shown with the left and right
sides cropped. Although the picture
looks larger, you don’t actually see
the whole picture.
3• Using the 16:9 (Wide) setting with a standard 4:3 TV, or one of the 4:3 settings with a widescreen TV, will result in distortion.
• When you watch discs recorded in 4:3 format, you can use the TV controls to select how the picture is presented. Your TV
may offer various zoom and stretch options; see the instructions that came with your TV for details.
• Some movie aspect ratios are wider than 16:9, so even with a widescreen TV, these discs will still play in a ‘letterbox’ style.
