To Load and Play a DVD Disc
Turn on the TV and your DVD/VCR (press ON•OFF on the remote or press the Power button on the DVD/VCR).
If necessary, tune the TV to its Video Input Channel (if you need more information, go to page 62).
Press the OPEN•CLOSE button (the disc tray opens).
Place a disc gently into the tray with the disc’s label facing up (double-sided discs have content on both sides, so you can place either side up).
Press the OPEN/CLOSE or PLAY button. The disc tray closes. The DVD/VCR reads the disc’s table of contents, and then one of three things happens depending on how the disc was programmed:
The disc starts playing.
The disc menu appears on the screen. One of the options will start disc play. Highlight that option and press OK.
The DVD player’s main menu appears on the screen. Highlight the Play option and press OK.
When you stop playing a disc, the player remembers where you stopped. When you start playing the disc again, the DVD/VCR picks up where you left off unless the disc is removed or the unit is unplugged, or if you press the STOP button twice.
To search a disc, you can use the FORWARD button or the REVERSE button. You can also utilize the following search features:
When you’re playing a disc, each time you press FORWARD or REVERSE, your DVD/VCR scans the disc faster until you reach the fastest scan speed. To resume normal playback, press PLAY.
Freeze Frame and Frame Advance
While a disc is playing, press PAUSE to freeze the picture. To advance one frame at a time, press PAUSE again (the on-screen icon changes from PAUSE to FRAME). Each time you press the FORWARD or REVERSE button, the picture goes to the next (or previous) frame. To resume normal playback, press PLAY.
Note: If you pause a DVD disc or VCD disc for a long period of time, the video will disappear from the screen. Press any button on the remote to revert to the place on the disc where you paused playback.
