TIPS
• Using this monitor’s screen-size switching to compress or expand the screen for commercial or public viewing in
establishments like cafes or hotels may infringe on the rights of the creators, as protected by Copyright Law, so please be
careful.
• When “Enlarge” is set, the screen size is fixed to WIDE mode.
• The appearance of the original video may change if you select a screen size with a different aspect ratio than the original
image (e.g. TV broadcast or video input from external equipment).
• When an ordinary non-wide image (4:3) is viewed with the whole screen using the screen-size switching function of this
monitor, the edge of the image may be lost or appear distorted. If you wish to respect the creator’s intentions, set the screen
size to NORMAL.
• When playing commercial software, parts of the image (like subtitles) may be cropped. In this case select the optimal screen
size using the screen-size switching function of this monitor. With some software, there may be noise or distortion at the
edges of the screen. This is due to the characteristics of the software, and is not a malfunction.
• Depending on the original image size, black bands may remain at the edges of the screen.

When connecting multiple monitors in a daisy chain, set the
timeout to at least the product of the monitor’s position from
the computer multiplied by 10 seconds.
Example) 3rd monitor from computer: 30 seconds or longer.
• Provide an interval of 100 ms or more between the

TIPS
• When turning the power on while the POWER ON DELAY
function is in use, set the timeout period to the POWER ON
DELAY period + 10 seconds or longer.
Advanced operation
This section explains commands for daisy chain connection.
The basic communication procedure is the same as in the
“One-to-one connection with a PC” section.
nID SETTING
You can assign a unique ID number to each monitor (see
page 27). This allows you to control a particular monitor in a
daisy chain of monitors.
You can assign ID numbers either from the menu screen or
from the PC using RS-232 cable.
[Example]
ID number: 1
ID number: 2
ID number: 3 ID number: 4
Return code
(0DH, 0AH)
When the following commands are used, “WAIT” is returned.
In this case, a value will be returned if you wait a while. Do not
send any command during this period.
No ID number is attached to WAIT response.
• Commands which return WAIT:
1. When repeater control is used
2. When an IDSL or IDLK command is used
3. When one of the following commands is used: RSET,
INPS, ASNC, WIDE, POWR, EMHV, EPHV, ESHV,
ENLG
If monitors are connected as shown above, you can
execute commands like “Set the volume of the monitor with
ID 4 to 20”.
When designating ID numbers for a set of monitors linked in a
daisy chain, you should basically avoid any duplication of ID
numbers.
ID numbers do not have to be assigned in ascending order
starting from the PC. They can also be connected as shown
below.
[Example]
ID number: 3
ID number: 2 ID number: 4 ID number: 1

E
Controlling the Monitor with a PC (RS-232C)
nCommands for ID control
The command examples shown on this page assume the
following connection and ID SETTING.
ID number: 1
ID number: 2 ID number: 3
ID number: 4
IDST��������.A monitor receiving this command sets its own ID
number in the parameter field.
Example:
IDST0001
OK
001 ← The ID number of this monitor is set to 1.
IDLK��������The parameter of this command sets the ID
number of the monitor. The monitor is subject to all
subsequent commands.
Example:
← with ID number: 2.
WAIT
←
OK
002
You can automatically assign ID numbers by using the IDST
command with the Repeater control (see “Repeater control”
on page 35).
For example, using the command “IDST001+” automatically
sets the ID numbers, as shown below.
[Example]
ID number: 1
ID number: 2 ID number: 3
ID number: 4
← ID setting command with repeater control
WAIT
OK
001
← “OK” response from ID number: 1
OK
002
← “OK” response from ID number: 2
OK
003
← “OK” response from ID number: 3
OK
004
← “OK” response from ID number: 4 (End)
IDSL��������The parameter of this command sets the ID number
of the monitor. The monitor is subject to the next
command.
Example:
The next command is for the monitor
IDSL0002
← with ID number: 2.
WAIT
←
OK
002
Searching for monitor with ID number:
2
← Found monitor with ID number: 2
Sets volume of monitor with ID
VOLM0030
← number: 2 to 30.
WAIT

to the PC) is set to 20.*
* The IDSL command is effective only once, for the
immediately succeeding command.
E

set to 10. (IDLK is canceled.)
* The IDLK command remains effective until it is
canceled, or power is shut off.
Controlling the Monitor with a PC (RS-232C)
nRepeater control
This system has a function to allow setting of multiple
monitors connected in a daisy chain using a single command.
This function is called repeater control. You can use Repeater
control function without assigning ID numbers.
[Example]
Set 1
Set 2
Set 3
Set 4
* If monitors are connected as shown above, you can
execute a command like “Set all monitors’ input settings to
D-SUB”.
nRepeater control command
Repeater control is achieved by setting the FOURTH
CHARACTER of the parameter to “+”.
Example:
VOLM030 +
← Sets volume of all monitors to 30.
In repeater control, responses are returned by all the
connected monitors.
If you want to determine that a value has been returned by a
specific set, assign ID numbers to each monitor in advance.
When some monitors do not return their responses, the
probable cause is that the monitors could not receive the
command or command processing is not complete. Do not
send a new command.
Example: (When 4 monitors are connected, and
assigned ID numbers: 1 through 4)
VOLM030 +
WAIT
OK
001
OK
002
OK
003
OK
004
← If 4 monitors are connected in
a chain, reliable operation can
be ensured by sending a new
command only after a reply
has been returned by 4th (last)
monitor.
Repeater control can also be used for reading settings.
Example:
VOLM ? ? ? +
WAIT
10
001
20
002
30
003
30
004
Volume settings for all
monitors are returned.
TIPS
• If repeater control is used during ID designation (IDSL,
IDLK), the ID designation is canceled.

The video from D-Sub input terminal does not appear
properly.
• Is the input signal compatible with this monitor? (See page
45.)
Control buttons do not work.
There is no picture.
• Load noises from outside may be interfering with normal
operation. Turn off the power and turn it on after waiting at
least 5 seconds, and then check the operation.
The monitor makes a cracking sound.
• You may occasionally hear a cracking sound from the
monitor. This happens when the cabinet slightly expands
and contracts according to change in temperature. This
does not affect the monitor’s performance.
It takes a longer time until the monitor starts up.
• When a USB flash drive is connected, it is better to turn
the power ON/OFF using the remote control unit. When
the power is turned ON using the main power switch with
a USB flash drive connected, the monitor startup takes
a longer time because the monitor checks USB terminal
connection after checking other terminal connections.
A file in the USB flash drive does not play properly.
• Is the file in a supported format? (See page 21.)
The following problems may occur if a non-supported
format is used:
- The file does not play properly.
- Pausing or Move forward/back cannot be performed
during playback.
- Abnormal play speed
- Operations cannot be performed during playback
- Playback stops. The player application restarts.
The screen turns black when a file in a USB flash drive is
played.
• The screen will turn black if none of the files in the play list
INPUT
are in the USB flash drive. Press
to exit.
Troubleshooting
The Power LED is flashing in red and green alternately.
• When the internal temperature of the monitor rises
excessively, the brightness of the backlight decreases
automatically in order to prevent high-temperature-related
problems. When this occurs, the Power LED flashes red
and green alternately.
• If the internal temperature rises further, the monitor
automatically enters standby mode. (The Power LED
continues flashing red and green alternately.)
• Remove the cause of the excessive temperature rise.
- If the monitor enters standby mode due to a rise in
temperature, to return to normal display, turn the power
switch off and then back on again. The monitor, however,
will enter standby mode again if the cause of the
temperature rise is not eliminated. (See page 8.)
- Check whether the monitor is placed at a location where
a quick rise in temperature is likely. Internal temperature
rises quickly if the vents on the monitor are blocked.
- Internal temperature rises quickly if dust accumulates
inside the monitor or around the vents. Remove dust if
possible. Ask SHARP dealer about removing internal dust.

Mounting Precautions
(For SHARP dealers and service engineers)
• Be sure to use a wall-mount bracket designed or designated for mounting the monitor.
• This monitor is designed to be installed on a concrete wall or pillar. Reinforced work might be necessary for some materials
such as plaster / thin plastic board / wood before starting installation.
• This monitor and bracket must be installed on a wall which can endure at least 4 times or more the weight of the monitor.
Install by the most suitable method for the material and the structure.
• To attach a VESA-compliant mounting bracket, use M6 screws that are 5/16 inch (8 mm) to 3/8 inch (10 mm) longer than the
thickness of the mounting bracket.
• Do not use an impact driver.
• When moving the monitor, hold the parts marked by
below. Do not hold the LCD panel. This may cause product
damage, failure, or injury.
• After mounting, please carefully ensure the monitor is secure, and not able to come loose from the wall or mount.
• Do not use any screw holes other than VESA holes for installation.
