01 or 02), then change TV channels downward until you see the blue DVD screen on the TV.
Connect the DVD Player directly to the TV. For example, do not connect the Player to aVCR, then
connect theVCR to a TV. This type of connection may distort the picture and sound or give you a
black and white picture. Also, yourVCR might have the copy protection system, which could distort
the DVD image or prevent playback of some Discs.
If yourTV does not have red, white, and yellow Audio andVideo In jacks, see the DVD
Player’s owner’s manual for other hookup options. If yourTV only has a single Antenna
In or RF In jack, you will need an RF modulator. See the owner’s manual for details.

inconsistency of Disc formats provided by various Disc manufacturers, your DVD Player may require
a playability enhancement. As DVD technology has advanced, these enhancements have become
both common and easy to complete.
