In a domestic environment this product may cause radio interference in which case the user may be required to take adequate counter measures. If a monitor is not positioned in a sufficiently stable location, it can be potentially hazardous due to falling. Many injuries, particularly to children, can be avoided by taking simple precautions such as: • Using fixing devices like wall mount brackets recommended by the manufacturer. • Only using furniture that can safely support the monitor. • Ensuring the monitor is not overhanging the edge of the supporting furniture. • Not placing the monitor on tall furniture (for example, cupboards or bookcases) without anchoring both the furniture and the monitor to a suitable support. • Not standing the monitors on cloth or other materials placed between the monitor and supporting furniture. • Educating children about the dangers of climbing on furniture to reach the monitor or its controls. Especially for child safety - Don’t allow children to climb on or play with the monitor. - Don’t place the monitor on furniture that can easily be used as steps, such as a chest of drawers. - Remember that children can become excited while watching a program, especially on a “larger than life” monitor. Care should be taken to place or install the monitor where it cannot be pushed, pulled over, or knocked down. - Care should be taken to route all cords and cables connected to the monitor so that they cannot be pulled or grabbed by curious children. SAFETY INSTRUCTION - Do not use the monitor where there is a lot of dust, where humidity is high, or where the monitor may come into contact with oil or steam, as this could lead to fire. - Ensure that the monitor does not come into contact with water or other fluids. Ensure that no objects such as paper clips or pins enter the monitor as this could lead to fire or electric shock. - Do not place the monitor on top of unstable objects or in unsafe places. Do not allow the monitor to receive strong shocks or to strongly vibrate. Causing the monitor to fall or topple over may damage it. - Do not use the monitor near heating equipment or in places where there is likelihood of high temperature, as this may lead to generation of excessive heat and outbreak of fire. - Do not use the monitor in places where it may be exposed to direct sunlight. - The AC outlet shall be installed near the equipment and shall be easily accessible. - Do not operate the screen with a hard or pointed object such as a fingernail, pen, or pencil. The Power Cord - Use only the power cord supplied with the monitor. - Do not damage the power cord nor place heavy objects on it, stretch it or over bend it. Also, do not add extension cords. Damage to the cord may result in fire or electric shock. - Do not use the power cord with a power tap. Adding an extension cord may lead to fire as a result of overheating. - Do not remove or insert the power plug with wet hands. Doing so could result in electric shock. - Unplug the power cord if it is not used for a long time. - Do not attempt to repair the power cord if it is broken or malfunctioning. Refer the servicing to the service representative. MOUNTING PRECAUTIONS • This product is for use indoors. • A mounting bracket compliant with VESA specifications is required. • Consult your dealer before installing, removing or moving the monitor. • Mounting the monitor on the wall requires special expertise and the work must be performed by an authorized SHARP dealer. You should never attempt to perform any of this work yourself. Our company will bear no responsibility for accidents or injuries caused by improper mounting or mishandling. • When moving the monitor, grasp both corners at the bottom of monitor. Do not grasp the screen or sensor. This may cause product damage, failure, or injury. • Use the monitor in a state that is perpendicular to the horizontal plane. If you tilt the monitor, do not tilt upward more than 45° or downward more than 20°. • If tilted upward 20° or more, set “BRIGHT” to “20” or less to prevent internal temperature abnormalities. • This monitor should be used at an ambient temperature between 41°F (5°C) and 95°F (35°C). Provide enough space around the monitor to prevent heat from accumulating inside. • Adhere to the following when installing the monitor in its vertical orientation. Failing to adhere to the following may cause malfunctions. - Install the monitor such that the power LED is located on the bottom side. - Mount so that the mark on the back points up. - Set the THERMAL SENSOR SETTING in the SETUP menu to PORTRAIT. (Operation Manual) • Use the supplied vertical sticker when you install the monitor in vertical orientation. For the monitor in horizontal orientation Unit: inch [cm] 7-7/8 * 2  1-7/16 [3.5] 2  2  For the monitor in vertical orientation 7-7/8 * 2  Unit: inch [cm] 1-13/16 [4.5] 2  2  * If the monitor will be tilted, maintain a clearance of 15-3/4 inch (40 cm). • If it is difficult to provide sufficient space because the monitor is used inside a housing or otherwise, or if the ambient temperature is above the range 41°F (5°C) to 95°F (35°C), install a fan or take other measures to keep the ambient temperature within the required range. • Temperature condition may change when using the monitor together with the optional equipments recommended by SHARP. In such cases, please check the temperature condition specified by the optional equipments. • Do not block any ventilation openings. If the temperature inside the monitor rises, this could lead to a malfunction. • Do not place the monitor on a device which generates heat. • Do not use the product in locations where the unit is exposed to direct sunlight or other strong light. Since this product operates with infrared rays, such light may cause a malfunction. Operation panel Logo -B e careful not to cover the remote control sensor or buttons. Mounting precautions (for SHARP dealers and service engineers) • Be sure to use a wall-mount bracket designed or designated for mounting the monitor. • 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. • 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. • 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.
