DVD Menu System
16 x 9 Widescreen – Choose this setting if your DVD Player is connected to a widescreen TV. If you choose this setting and you don’t have a widescreen TV, the images on the screen might appear distorted due to vertical compression. If you play a disc recorded in 4 x 3 format on a widescreen TV, the left and right sides of the screen will appear black.
Progressive Scan You can change how the video signal is output to your TV as either progressive scan or interlaced.
With the player on (no disc playing), press MENU (the main menu appears). If a disc is playing, press STOP.
Use the up and down arrow buttons to highlight Display. Press the OK button on the remote (the Display choices appear).
Use the up and down arrow button to highlight Progressive Scan. Press the OK button (the Progressive Scan options appear).
Use the OK button to toggle between Progressive Scan on or off. Tip: You can also toggle progressive scan and interlace mode by pressing and holding the PAUSE button when a disc is not playing.
Important: If you lose the picture signal when connected to your TV with component video cables, toggle the progressive scan/interlace mode as mentioned above.
The Sound menu lets you adjust the player’s settings to match the equipment you connected to your DVD/VCR, and to use the DVD player’s Sound features.
The Sound Logic feature compresses the dynamic range (quietest sound to loudest sound) of a disc’s soundtrack to even out the range of volume.
From the Main Menu, (player on, no disc playing), highlight Sound and press the OK button on the remote (the Sound options appear).
If Sound Logic isn’t already highlighted, press the up arrow button on the remote control to highlight it and press OK (the Sound Logic options appear).
Use the up and down arrow buttons to highlight a choice and press the OK button: Off - this is the default (Sound Logic is turned off). On - the volume range is compressed (loud sounds are quieter and soft sounds are louder). Note: The performance of the Sound Logic feature varies depending upon the equipment you have connected to your DVD/VCR and also the audio format of the disc you’re playing.
