to the monitor.
• Since the LCD panel has been specially processed, the fingerprints will remain on the panel and
stand out if you touch the panel. Avoid touching the panel as much as possible. Also avoid pushing
the panel.
• When temperature becomes low, the picture does not appear or sometimes it takes time to appear.
On occasion, the picture motion seems to be different from that at normal temperature and the
picture quality deteriorates. These phenomena are not a malfunction. (Range of operating temperature: 0˚C to +40˚C)
• On the panel red dots, blue dots and green dots are found. This is peculiar to the LCD panel and it is
not a malfunction.
