Dvd-video disc menus, Getting started 03 – Pioneer S-DV440 User Manual
• When a Video CD is loaded, the Resume
point is lost if the system is switched off, or
switched to a function other than
• For the Last Memory function to work, you
(stop) to stop playback
before opening the disc tray.
• The Last Memory function doesn’t work
with VR format DVD-RW discs.
• After I load a DVD disc, it ejects
automatically after a few seconds!
Most likely, the disc is the wrong region for
your system. The region number should be
printed on the disc; check it against the
region number of the system (which you
can find on the rear panel). See also
on page 58.
If the region number is OK, it may be that
the disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc
and look for signs of damage. See also
Using and taking care of discs
on page 58.
• Why won’t the disc I loaded play?
First check that you loaded the disc the
right way up (label side up), and that it’s
clean and not damaged. See
taking care of discs
on page 58 for
information on cleaning discs.
If a disc loaded correctly won’t play, it’s
probably an incompatible format or disc
type, such as DVD-Audio or DVD-ROM. See
Disc / content format playback compatibility
on page 7 for more on disc compatibility.
• I have a widescreen TV so why are there
black bars at the top and bottom of the
screen when I play some discs?
Some movie formats are such that even
when played on a widescreen TV, black
bars are necessary at the top and bottom of
the screen. This is not a malfunction.
• I have a standard (4:3) TV and set the system
to show widescreen DVDs in pan & scan
format, so why do I still get black bars top
and bottom with some discs?
Some discs override the display
preferences of the system, so even if you
4:3 (Pan & Scan)
discs will still be shown in letterbox format.
This is not a malfunction.
DVD-Video disc menus
Many DVD-Video discs contain menus from
which you can select what you want to watch.
They may give access to additional features,
such as subtitle and audio language selection,
or special features such as slideshows. See the
disc packaging for details.
Sometimes DVD-Video menus are displayed
automatically when you start playback; others
only appear when you press
