CD-i Player Manuals

Note: Manuals for ALL Philips CD-i player models should be available from Philips Customer Care, but since that site is spotty they have been made available here as well.

Here you will find manuals for some CD-i player models in Portable Document Format, you need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view or print them.

Note on consumer CD-i players

There were different editions of some CD-i player models, for example with different connectors (i.e. SCART for some European releases or Antenna in/out connections for some US models), different Digital Video cartridges and most importantly: different versions of the player shell.

Since only the manuals for a limited number of CD-i player versions are available in digital format, we provide you with a list of all player versions and an indication to which manual is most suitable for this particular player.

  • Remember that there still might be regional differences, especially in relation to the connection to a power source and connecting to a TV (SCART, CVBS, antenna, etc.).
  • Please apply Philips' version indication method to the version number to find manuals for localized versions (i.e. add /05 for UK and /17 for US)
