Signal Input and Output: The DVD Player can apply signals to a TV, amplifier, VCR, video projector, or any other audiovisual components.

A/V Signal Input/Output Switch: Slide the switch to set the DVD Player to input or output mode. When the switch is in the IN position, all output signals from the DVD Player are muted so the DVD Player can receive input signals. MAKE SURE THE INPUT/OUTPUT SWITCH IS IN THE OUT POSITION BEFORE TRYING TO PLAY A DISC.
S-VHS Output: Using the S-VHS signal produces better picture quality. Connect it with a S-VHS cable (optional) between the DVD Player and your TV. The S-VHS signal output cannot be used while DVD Player is powered by the battery. The battery connector is covered when the S-VHS signal is being used.
DC In: The DVD Player comes with an AC adapter for indoor or long-time playing use. Connect the adapter's power cord to a household power source. Connect the other end of the adapter to the DC IN connector on the DVD Player. Use only the AC adapter that is shipped with the DVD Player. Using a substitute adapter may result in damage to the DVD Player.
External Connection: You can connect the DVD Player to any audiovisual equipment from the DVD Player's output terminals of DVD Player. You can also connect any audiovisual equipment to the DVD Player's input terminals. To switch the DVD Player's signal source between input and output, adjust the Input/Output switch (IN OUT). Set the switch to the OUT position, to transmit signals from the DVD Player to other equipment. Set the switch to the IN position for the DVD Player to receive signals from other equipment.

S-VHS Out: Some equipment is equipped with a S-VHS terminal, which you can use instead of the RCA video terminal. The picture quality of a S-VHS signal is better than an ordinary RCA signal.
