if improperly handled. This product has been engineered and manufactured with the highest priority on safety.
However, improper use can result in electric shock and/or fire. In order to prevent potential danger, please
observe the following instructions when installing, operating and cleaning the product. To ensure your safety
and prolong the service life of your LCD product, please read the following precautions carefully before using
the product.
1. Read instructions—All operating instructions must be read and understood before the product is operated.
2. Keep this manual in a safe place—These safety and operating instructions must be kept in a safe place
for future reference.
3. Observe warnings—All warnings on the product and in the instructions must be observed closely.
4. Follow instructions—All operating instructions must be followed.
5. Cleaning—Unplug the power cord from the AC outlet before cleaning the product. Use a damp cloth to
clean the product. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
6. Attachments—Do not use attachments not recommended by the manufacturer. Use of inadequate attachments can result in accidents.
7. Water and moisture—Do not use the product near water, such as bathtub, washbasin, kitchen sink and
laundry tub, swimming pool and in a wet basement.
8. Stand—Do not place the product on an unstable cart, stand, tripod or table. Placing the product on an
unstable base can cause the product to fall, resulting in serious personal injuries as well as damage to
the product. Use only a cart, stand, tripod, bracket or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold
with the product. When mounting the product on a wall, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
Use only the mounting hardware recommended by the manufacturer.
9. When relocating the product placed on a cart, it must be moved with utmost care.
Sudden stops, excessive force and uneven floor surface can cause the product to fall
from the cart.
10. Ventilation—The vents and other openings in the cabinet are designed for ventilation.
Do not cover or block these vents and openings since insufficient ventilation can cause
overheating and/or shorten the life of the product. Do not place the product on a bed,
sofa, rug or other similar surface, since they can block ventilation openings. Do not
place the product in an enclosed place such as a bookcase or rack, unless proper
ventilation is provided or the manufacturer’s instructions are followed.
11. Power cord protection—The power cords must be routed properly to prevent people from stepping on
them or objects from resting on them.
12. The LCD panel used in this product is made of glass. Therefore, it can break when the product is
dropped or applied with impact. Be careful not to be injured by broken glass pieces in case the LCD
panel breaks.
13. Overloading—Do not overload AC outlets or extension cords. Overloading can cause fire or electric
shock.
14. Entering of objects and liquids—Never insert an object into the product through vents or openings. High
voltage flows in the product, and inserting an object can cause electric shock and/or short internal parts.
For the same reason, do not spill water or liquid on the product.
15. Servicing—Do not attempt to service the product yourself. Removing covers can expose you to high
voltage and other dangerous conditions. Request a qualified service person to perform servicing.

Mounting
precautions
Special techniques are required to mount this monitor, so be sure to rely on a specialist
for mounting work. The customer should never perform any of this work himself or
herself. Our company will bear no responsibility for accidents or injuries caused by
improper mounting or handling.
Installing wall-mount bracket
1. Determine the location where the base bracket will be installed.
● Take a washer about the size of a coin with a string and align it perpendicular to the base bracket.
● Use a pencil, etc., to mark the two screw hole locations.
Cellophane tape, etc.
shaped screw holes
Use a pencil, etc., to mark the screw hole
position on the wall behind the bracket.

2. Loosely screw in the screws.
● Temporarily remove the base bracket from the wall and loosely screw in 2 off-the-shelf screws in the screw
hole positions marked on the wall. At this time, the screw heads should extend several millimeters above
the wall so that the base bracket can be hung on the screw heads.
● Hang the base bracket on the installed screws, check to make sure the bracket is not sagging to the left or
right, and then firmly tighten the screws. Use off-the-shelf screws to secure the remaining screw holes (14 to
18 screws).

■ This section explains commands for daisy chain connection. The basic communication procedure is
the same as in the “Basic operation” section.
<ID numbers>
You can assign a unique ID number to each monitor (see page 56). This allows you to control a
particular monitor in a daisy chain of monitors.
Up to about 20 monitors can be connected, depending on the length of RS-232C cables and
installation environment.
You can assign ID numbers either from the menu screen (via remote control or the control buttons on
the monitor) or from the PC using RS-232C cable.
[Example]
PC
ID number: 1
ID number: 2
ID number: 3
ID number: 4
If monitors are connected as shown above, you can execute commands like “Set the volume of the
monitor with ID 4 to 20”.
PC Operation
When controlling monitors linked in a daisy chain by designating ID numbers, you should basically
avoid any duplication of ID numbers.
If the same ID number is assigned to multiple monitors, only the monitor closest to the PC can be
controlled with that ID number.
If monitors are connected as shown below, only the monitor 1 can be accessed with ID number 2.
Monitor 2 cannot be controlled using that ID number.
[Example]
PC
ID number: 1
ID number: 2
ID number: 2
①
②
ID number: 3
ID numbers do not have to be assigned in ascending order starting from the PC. They can also be
connected as shown below.
[Example]
PC
ID number: 3
ID number: 2
ID number: 4
ID number: 1

<Commands for ID control>
The command examples shown on this page assume the following connection and ID number set
up.
PC
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.
Note
After linking monitors, you can automatically assign ID numbers by using the IDST command with
the Repeater control (see “Repeater control” on page 42).
[Example]
PC
Set 1
Set 2
Set 3
Set 4
If you connect monitors as shown above, and use the command “IDST001+”, ID numbers
will be set automatically, as shown below.
[Example]
PC

←ID = “OK” response from ID number=2
←ID = “OK” response from ID number=3
←ID = “OK” response from ID number=4 (End)
ID number: 4
PC Operation (Continued)
IDSL······ The parameter of this command sets the ID number indicating the monitor subject to the
next command.
Example:
IDSL0002
← The next command is for the monitor with ID number=2.
WAIT
← Searching for monitor with ID number=2.
OK 002
← Found monitor with ID number=2
VOLM0030
← Set volume of monitor with ID number=2 to 30
WAIT
← Processing
OK 002
← OK response from monitor with ID number=2
The IDSL command is
VOLM0020
← Set volume to 20
effective only once, for the
OK 001
← The volume of the monitor with ID number=1
immediately succeeding
(the one directly connected to the PC) is set to

IDLK······ The parameter of this command sets the ID number indicating the monitor subject to all
subsequent commands.
Example:
IDLK0002
← Following commands are for the monitor whose ID number is “2”.
WAIT
← Searching for monitor with ID number=2.
OK 002
← Found monitor with ID number=2
VOLM0030
← Set volume of monitor with ID number=2 to 30
The IDLK command
WAIT
← Processing
remains effective until it is
OK 002
canceled, or power is shut
off.
VOLM0020
← Set volume of monitor with ID number=2 to 20
← Canceling ID number setting
← Canceling IDLK
← Cancelation complete
← The volume of the monitor with ID number=1 (the one directly connected
to the PC) is set to 10.
IDCK······ Provides screen display of the ID number currently assigned to a monitor, and the ID
number currently set for IDLK (if any).
Example:
(After executing IDLK0002)
IDCK0000
← (Parameter has no meaning)
ID:001 IDLK:002
← Returned response. The ID number is also displayed on the
monitor screen.
IDCK000+
← Repeater control
WAIT
(If a command is used with repeater control, ID designation using
ID:001 IDLK:002
IDSL or IDLK is canceled.)

<Repeater 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.
Up to about 20 monitors can be connected, depending on the length of RS-232C cables and
installation environment.
You can use Repeater control function without assigning ID numbers.
[Example]
PC
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 INPUT”.
<Repeater 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.
If no response is returned, this may be because the monitor has not received (or is still processing) the command, so it is possible that new commands may not be executed even if they
are sent.
* If power is turned “OFF” using Repeater control, only the monitor closest to the PC returns a
response.
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
Volume settings for all monitors are returned.
30 003
40 004
» If repeater control is used during ID designation (IDSL, IDLK), the ID designation is canceled.

make it impossible to achieve good results even if it succeeds.
Example of the ideal signal for use in adjustment: An image with full size and
resolution, and a vertical stripe signal which inverts between black and white at each
pixel.

Detailed explanation
Control lock
Overview
This monitor is equipped with a control lock function to prevent third parties from changing the
operating state. Locked functions cannot be used unless a PIN is input.
PINs can be freely set by the user.
The following types of operation can be locked.
» Menu Display
When locked, MENU buttons on the remote control and monitor are disabled.
» Remote Control
When enabled buttons on the remote control except STANDBY/ON are locked.
» Monitor Buttons
When enabled monitor buttons except STANDBY/ON are locked.
» Power
When locked, the STANDBY/ON button on the remote control and the monitor cannot perform
switching from the operating state to the standby state. It can however, perform switching from the
standby state to the operating state.
» RS-232C
When enabled operation using RS-232C is locked.
Lock state and temporary unlock (Except for RS-232C)
When some functions are locked, you will be prompted to enter PIN if you attempt to use the function. If
you enter the correct PIN, the locks on all locked functions are temporarily unlocked, so you can use the
functions.
Functions which have been temporarily unlocked are locked again under the following conditions.
• The monitor entered standby mode.
• PIN was changed.
• Main POWER was turned off.
• Lock Items were modified.
Even if functions are temporarily unlocked, the system will ask for a PIN if you try to enter “Control Lock”
from the “Setup” menu. This is to prevent the PIN from being modified while it is temporarily unlocked.
Permanent unlocking (Except for RS-232C)
1) Select “Control Lock” from “Setup” in the menu screen.
2) Select “PIN Clear”, then “Yes” and press ENTER.
Lock state and temporary unlock (RS-232C)
If RS-232C is locked and you sent an RS-232C command, LOCKED will come back as the returned
value.
Only the following commands will work in this state.
» PINPxxxx (“xxxx” is the current PIN.)
Temporarily unlocks the current lock.
Functions which have been temporarily unlocked are locked again under the following conditions.
• The monitor entered standby mode.
• PIN was changed.
US

• Main POWER was turned off.
• Lock Items were modified.
Settings and Adjustments (Continued)
» PIN+xxxx (“xxxx” is the current PIN.)
This command temporarily releases current lock.
“+” indicates repeater control for the PINP command. ( 42
Repeater control)
» PCLRxxxx (“xxxx” is the current PIN.)
It reverts to the state where no PIN has been set.
This is the same as “PIN Clear” under “Control Lock” on the “Setup” menu. (“Permanent unlocking”)
» PCL+xxxx (“xxxx” is the current PIN.)
It reverts to the state where there is no PIN.
“+” indicates repeater control for the PCLR command.
Permanent Control lock deactivation (RS-232C)
When a single monitor is connected, use “PCLRxxxx” (“xxxx” is the current PIN.)
When multiple monitors are connected, use “PCLR+xxxx”.
If the “RS-232C” function is locked, the IDSL and IDLK commands cannot be used.

1) From the menu screen, select “Control Lock” from “Setup”.
2) Go to “Lock Items”, then “Remote”, and select “Lock”.
Note: If you exit the menu at this point, the locking will not occur.
3) Go to PIN input, and enter a 4-digit PIN.
4) After PIN input, the set locks will become effective when you close the menu.

NOTE: » When using the screen size selection function of this monitor, the appearance of the original video may change if
you select a screen size with a different aspect ratio than the original image (i.e. TV broadcast or video input from
an external device). Please consider this point when selecting the screen size.
» Using this monitor’s screen size switching function to compress or expand the screen for commercial or public
viewing in establishments like cafes or hotels may infringe on the rights of creators, as protected by Copyright
Law, so please be careful.
» When 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 intensions,
set the screen size to “Normal”.
» When playing commercial software, parts of the image (like subtitles) image may be cropped. In this case select
the optimal screen size using “Wide Mode” and adjust the vertical position (see “Position” on page 55). With
some software, there may be noise or distortion at the edges or top of the screen. This is due to the
characteristics of the software, and is not a malfunction.

Troubleshooting (Continued)
■ Warning when temperature rises
Nature of warning:
∫ “Temperature” flashes at the lower right corner of the screen. The monitor automatically enters standby
mode if temperature continues to rise.
Solution:
∫ If the monitor enters standby mode due to a rise in temperature, you can turn on the power on again in
the usual way using the remote control or buttons on the monitor. However the monitor will enter standby
mode again if the cause of the temperature rise is not eliminated.
∫ 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 back are blocked.
∫ Internal temperature rises quickly if dust accumulates inside the monitor or around the vents. Remove
dust if possible. Ask your dealer about removing internal dust.
Cracking sound
The monitor sometimes makes a cracking sound.
» You may hear 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.
