|We bought this player for the kids (and dad too) for the car and flights etc. Overall this product is appealing (except for the price). Small size, large and clear screen, good battery life, two headphone output jacks Extra batteries and car charger expensive ; strange AC voltage|

You can find the region code of your system by looking on the rear panel. Some discs are compatible with more than one region (or all regions).

The AEL(accessible emission level) of the laser power output is less than CLASS 1 but the lasear component is capable of emitting radiation exceeding the limit for CLASS 1. A specially instructed person should do servicing operation of the apparatus.
CAUTION : LASER RADIATION WHEN OPEN, AVOID LONG-TERM VIEWING OF DIRECT LASER RADIATION. CAUTION : USE OF CONTROLS OR ADJUSTMENTS OR PERFORMANCE OF PROCEDURES OTHER THAN THOSE SPECIFIED HEREIN MAY RESULT IN HAZARDOUS RADIATION EXPOSURE. CAUTION : TO PREVENT RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK AND LASER EXPOSURE, DISCONNECT THE AC ADAPTER OR THE BATTERY BEFORE REMOVE SCREWS. LASER DIODE CHARACTERISTICS FOR DVD : MAXIMUM OUTPUT POWER : 3.2 mW WAVELENGTH : 650 nm FOR CD : MAXIMUM OUTPUT POWER : 3.3 mW WAVELENGTH : 780 nm

Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced. Replaced only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacture. Discord used batteries according to the manufacture's instructions.
Additional Laser Caution
1. Laser Interlock Mechanism If the switches to detect door-open state (S603, S605: DISC OPEN DET) are open, the laser interlock mechanism operates and shuts down the power source (Q100) to the laser diode drive circuit. The system microcomputer detects this condition and does not issue the Laser On command. If Q100 is defective, accompanying a short-circuit between the emitter and the collector, the system microcomputer judges this status as the door-open state, and it does not issue the Laser On command as long as Q611 is not defective, even if S603 and S605 are open. Therefore, the laser does not light unless S603 and S605 are intentionally short-circuited in door-open state. To light the laser in Test mode, short-circuit S603 and S605. Hold S603 and S605 in the depressed position from the top, as they are push switch. 2. NEVER directly look at the objective lens from a short distance when lighting the laser by short-circuiting S603 and S605 in dooropen state.
