    Before You Start

    To protect the LCD screen
    ! Do not allow direct sunlight to fall on the
    display when this unit is not being used.
    Extended exposure to direct sunlight can
    result in LCD screen malfunction due to
    the resulting high temperatures.
    ! When using a portable phone, keep the antenna of the portable phone away from the
    display to prevent disruption of the video by
    the appearance of spots, colored stripes,
    etc.

    What the marks on DVDs
    indicate
    The marks below may be found on DVD disc
    labels and packages. They indicate the type of
    images and audio recorded on the disc, and

    For viewing LCD comfortably
    Due to its construction, the view angle of the
    LCD screen is limited. The viewing angle (vertical and horizontal) can be increased, however,
    by using BRIGHT to adjust the black density of
    the video. When using for the first time, adjust
    the black density in accordance with the viewing angle (vertical and horizontal) to adjust for
    clear viewing. DIMMER can also be used to
    adjust the brightness of the LCD screen itself
    to suit your personal preference.

    Condition memory
    This function memorizes audio language, subtitle language, angle number and aspect ratio
    made during disc playback for up to 30 discs.
    Without any special operations, the final setting details during playback of a disc are memorized. The next time a disc is played, the
    previous settings are automatically applied.
    ! With some discs, audio language and subtitle language are automatically specified,
    in which case condition memory does not
    function.
    ! When the number of discs exceeds 30, settings for the latest disc replace those for
    the least recent disc.

    Auto TA and EQ (auto-time
    alignment and autoequalizing)

    WARNING

    To prevent accidents, never carry out auto TA and
    EQ while driving. When this function measures
    the car interior acoustic characteristics to create
    an auto-equalizer curve, a loud measurement
    tone (noise) may be output from the speakers.

    CAUTION

    ! Carrying out auto TA and EQ under the following conditions may damage the speakers. Be
    sure to check the conditions thoroughly before carrying out auto TA and EQ.
     When speakers are incorrectly connected.
    (e.g., When a rear speaker is connected to
    a subwoofer output.)
     When a speaker is connected to a power
    amp delivering output higher than the
    speakers maximum input power capability.
    ! If the microphone is placed in an unsuitable
    position the measurement tone may become
    loud and measurement may take a long time,
    resulting in a drain on battery power. Be sure
    to place the microphone in the specified location.

    ! Carry out auto TA and EQ in as quiet a
    place as possible, with the car engine and
    air conditioning switched off. Also cut
    power to car phones or portable telephones
    in the car, or remove them from the car before carrying out auto TA and EQ. Sounds
    other than the measurement tone (surrounding sounds, engine sound, telephones ringing etc.) may prevent correct
    measurement of the car interior acoustic
    characteristics.
    ! Be sure to carry out auto TA and EQ using
    the supplied microphone. Using another
    microphone may prevent measurement, or
    result in incorrect measurement of the car
    interior acoustic characteristics.
    ! When front speaker is not connected, auto
    TA and EQ cannot be carried out.
    ! When this unit is connected to a power
    amp with input level control, auto TA and
    EQ may not be possible if you lower power
    amp input level. Set the power amps input
    level to the standard position.
    ! When this unit is connected to a power
    amp with an LPF, turn off the LPF on the
    power amp before carrying out auto TA and
    EQ. In addition, the cut-off frequency for
    built-in LPF of an active subwoofer should
    be set to the highest frequency.
    ! The time alignment value calculated by
    auto TA and EQ may differ from the actual
    distance in the following circumstances.
    However, the distance has been calculated
    by computer to be the optimum delay to
    give accurate results for the circumstances, so please continue to use this
    value.
     When the reflected sound within a vehicle is strong and delays occur.
     When delays occur for low sounds due
    to the influence of the LPF on active
    subwoofers or external amps.
