TIPS
• Using this monitor’s screen-size switching or dual-screen display functions 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.
• When dual-screen display is selected, the screen size cannot be changed.
• 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.

Controlling the Monitor with a PC
You can control this monitor from a PC via RS-232C (COM
port) on the PC.
You can also connect multiple monitors via a daisy chain by
using a PC. By assigning ID numbers to each monitor (see
page 25), you can make input mode selection/adjustment or
can check the status of a specific monitor.
PC connection
One-to-one connection with a PC
Connect with RS-232 straight cable between the PC’s COM
port (RS-232C connector) and the RS-232C input terminal on
the monitor.
Communication conditions
Set the RS-232C communication settings on the PC to match
the monitor’s communication settings as follows:
Baud rate
9600 bps
Stop bit
1 bit
Data length
8 bits
Flow control
None
Parity bit
None
Communication procedure
Command format
When a command is sent from the PC to the monitor, the
monitor operates according to the received command and
sends a response message to the PC.

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.
ID number
TIPS
• “ERR” is returned when there is no relevant command or
when the command cannot be used in the current state of
the monitor.
• If communication has not been established for reasons
such as a bad connection between the PC and monitor,
nothing is returned (not even ERR).
• If no monitor has been assigned the designated ID number
(e.g. if the command IDSL0002
is used, but no monitor
with ID number: 2 is found), no response is returned.
ID numbers
You can assign a unique ID number to each monitor (see
page 19). This allows you to control a particular monitor in a
daisy chain of monitors.
You can assign ID numbers either from the menu screen (using
the remote control) 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, EMAG, EPOS, PXSL, POWR,
AGIN, MWIN, MWIP, MWPP, ESTG
If monitors are connected as shown above, you can
execute commands like “Set the volume of the monitor with
ID 4 to 20”.
When controlling monitors linked in a daisy chain by
designating ID numbers, 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
When control via RS-232C is locked (to prevent use) using
the operation lock function (see page 23)

Commands for ID control
The command examples shown on this page assume the
following connection and ID number set up.
ID number: 1
ID number: 2
ID number: 3
ID number: 4
IDLK ........The parameter of this command sets the ID
number of the monitor. The monitor is subject to all
subsequent commands.
Example:
IDLK0002
WAIT
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.
OK
002
VOLM0030
WAIT
OK
Following commands are for the monitor
← with ID number: 2.
← Searching for monitor with ID number: 2.
← Found monitor with ID number: 2.
Sets volume of monitor with ID number:
← 2 to 30.*
← Processing.
002
VOLM0020
Sets volume of monitor with ID number:
← 2 to 20.*
WAIT
OK
TIPS
You can automatically assign ID numbers by using the IDST
command with the Repeater control (see “Repeater control”
on page 27).
For example, using the command “IDST001+” automatically
sets the ID numbers, as shown below.
[Example]
IDST001 +
WAIT
OK 001
OK 002
OK 003
OK 004
ID number: 2
ID number: 3
ID number: 4
← ID setting command with repeater control
←
←
←
←
“OK” response from ID number: 1
“OK” response from ID number: 2
“OK” response from ID number: 3
“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:
IDSL0002
WAIT
OK
002
VOLM0030
WAIT
OK
002
The next command is for the monitor with
← ID number: 2.
← Searching for monitor with ID number: 2.
← Found monitor with ID number: 2.
Sets volume of monitor with ID number:
← 2 to 30.
← Processing.
OK response from monitor with ID
VOLM0020
← number: 2.
← Sets volume to 20.
OK
← number: 1 (the one directly connected

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

IDLK0000
← Canceling fixed ID number setting.
WAIT
← Canceling IDLK.
OK
002
← Cancelation complete.

* The IDLK command remains effective until it is
canceled, or power is shut off.
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)
← (Parameter has no meaning.)
IDCK0000

monitor screen.
is used with repeater control, ID
designation using IDSL or IDLK is
canceled.)
Controlling the Monitor with a PC
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
ENGLISH
Repeater control
Set 4
* If monitors are connected as shown above, you can
execute a command like “Set all monitors’ input settings to
PC1 DIGITAL”.
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.
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
003
OK
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.
• Commands that use parameters consisting of more than
four characters can not be controlled by repeater control.

Troubleshooting
Before calling for repair services, make sure following checks
for possible remedies to the encountered symptoms.
There is no picture or sound.
• Is the power cord disconnected? (See page 12.)
• Is the main power switch set to “OFF”? (See page 14.)
• Is the monitor in standby mode (the power LED illuminating
in orange)? (See page 14.)
• Make sure correct input mode is selected. (See page 15.)
• If any external equipment is connected, make sure the
equipment is operating (playing back).
Remote control does not work.
• Are the batteries inserted with polarity (+,-) aligned? (See
page 13.)
• Are the batteries exhausted? (See page 13.)
• Point the remote control unit toward the monitor’s remote
control sensor. (See page 13.)
• Is the menu display hidden or is operation disabled? (See
page 23.)
Sound from left and right speakers is reversed.
Sound is heard from only one side.
• Are audio cables connected properly? (See pages 10 and
11.)
• Make sure audio cables for external speakers are
connected properly: left and right cables may be reversed
or one of the two cables may not be connected. (See page
11.)
• Check the setting of BALANCE for AUDIO menu. (See
page 18.)
There is a picture but no sound.
• Is the sound muted? (See page 15.)
• Make sure the volume is not set to minimum. (See page
15.)
• Is the PC audio cable (commercially available) connected?
(See page 10.)
• Are audio cables connected properly? (See page 10.)
• Is the audio signal input properly to the audio input terminal
corresponding to the selected video input terminal? (See
page 15.)
Unstable video.
• The signal may be incompatible. (See pages 10 and 34.)
• Try the automatic screen adjustment when the PC2 input
terminal or PC3 input terminals is used. (See page 22.)
PC1 or AV1 does not appear properly.
• Is the setting of DVI SELECT correct? (See page 19.)
• Is the input signal compatible with this monitor? (See pages
10 and 34.)
• Turn off the power to the connected equipment and then
turn the power on again.
• If the monitors are connected in a daisy chain, turn off the
power to all the monitors connected in a daisy chain and
then turn the power on again.
PC3 or AV2 does not appear properly.
• Is the setting of BNC SELECT correct? (See page 19.)
• Is the input signal compatible with this monitor? (See page
34.)

Control buttons do not work.
There is no picture.
• Some kind of load noises from outside might interfere with
normal operation. Turn off the power and turn it on after
waiting at least 5 seconds, and then check the operation.
The input mode changes automatically.
• When the AUTO INPUT CHANGE is ON and no signal
is present in a selected input mode, the AUTO INPUT
CHANGE automatically changes the selected mode to a
mode where a video signal is present. (See page 19.)
The input mode may change in the following cases:
- When a computer is in standby mode.
- When video play is stopped with a playback device.
Power LED flashes red.
“SERVICE CALL” appears in the corner of the screen.
• Hardware has a problem. Turn off the monitor and request
repair from your SHARP dealer.
When “TEMPERATURE” is displayed.
• When the internal temperature of the monitor rises
excessively, the brightness of the backlight decreases
in order to prevent high-temperature-related problems.
Remove the cause of the excessive rise in temperature.
(See the description below.)
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.
■ Warning when temperature rises
• When the internal temperature of the monitor rises
excessively, the brightness of the backlight decreases
automatically in order to prevent high-temperaturerelated problems. When this occurs, “TEMPERATURE” is
displayed on the screen and 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.)
Solution:
• If the monitor enters standby mode due to a rise in
temperature, to return to normal display, turn the main
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 9.)
• 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.
