How to Mount and Attach Options to the LCD Monitor
You can attach mounting accessories to the LCD monitor in
one of the following two ways:
1. In the upright position
3. Ventilation Requirements for enclosure
mounting
To allow heat to disperse, leave space between surrounding
objects as shown in the diagram below.
2. Lay the screen face down
Lay the protective sheet on a table, which was wrapped
around the monitor when it was packaged, beneath the
screen surface so as not to scratch the screen face.
This device cannot be used or installed without the Tabletop
Stand or other mounting accessory. Failure to follow correct
mounting procedures could result in damage to the equipment or injury to the user or installer. Product warranty does
not cover damage caused by improper installation.
Failure to follow these recommendations could result in voiding your warranty.
Use M6 screws (having a length 10 mm longer than the thickness of the mounting bracket) and tighten them securely.
Prevent the screws from loosening using spring washers,
etc. MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC recommends using mounting
interface that comply with TÜV-GS and/or UL1678 standard
in North America.
4. To avoid monitor from falling
When installing the monitor using the tabletop stands (optional), take measures to prevent the monitor from falling over
in case of an earthquake or other disaster to lessen the probability of injury and damage resulting from fall.
As shown in the figure, secure the monitor to a solid wall or
pillar using rope (commercially available) strong enough to
bear the weight of the monitor. (MDT421S: approx. 27 kg (with
the optional stands))
When you use screw hooks (commercially available), ring
screw hooks, not C-shaped screw hooks (with opening), are
recommended.

Caution:
For preventing the monitor from falling.
• Install the monitor with metal brackets for wall or ceiling
installation (commercially available) on your own responsibility. For detailed procedures of installation, refer to the
instructions of the metal brackets.
• To lessen the probability of injury and damage resulting
from fall of the monitor in case of earthquake or other
disaster, be sure to consult the bracket manufacturer for
installation location.
• To lessen the risk of falling of the monitor, thread commercially available rope through the handles at the right and
left of the monitor and secure the rope to the wall mount
brackets or ceiling mount brackets.
• Do not sleep where the monitor may topple over or fall in
case of an earthquake or other disaster.
Caution:
• The effectiveness of preventing from falling substantially
depends on the strength of brackets and base to which
prevention device from falling is attached. When you
cannot ensure sufficient strength, provide adequate
reinforcement.
• Though the recommended prevention from falling is
intended to lessen the probability of injury and damage, it
doesn’t assure its effectiveness against any kind of
earthquake or disaster.
• Do not sleep where the monitor may topple over or fall in
case of an earthquake or other disaster.
• Before moving the monitor, remove the rope that is
securing the monitor. Failure to do so may result in injury
or breakdown of the monitor.

Using Power Management
The LCD monitor follows the VESA approved DPM Power
Management function.
The power management function is an energy saving
function that automatically reduces the power consumption
of the display when the keyboard or the mouse has not been
used for a fixed period.
The power management feature on your new display has
been set to the “ON” mode. This allows your display to enter
a Power Saving Mode when no signal is applied. This could
potentially increase the life and decrease the power
consumption of the display.

NOTE
< IMAGE PERSISTENCE >
Please be aware that LCD Technology may experience a phenomenon known as Image Persistence. Image Persistence
occurs when residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the screen. Unlike CRT monitors, LCD
monitors’ image persistence is not permanent, but constant images being displayed for a long period of time should be
avoided.
To alleviate image persistence, turn off the monitor for as long as the previous image was displayed. For example, if an
image was on the monitor for one hour and a residual image remains, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to erase
the image.
As with all personal display devices, MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC recommends displaying moving images and using a moving
screen saver at regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not in use.
Please set “POWER SAVE”, “SCREEN SAVER”, “DATE AND TIME” and “SCHEDULE” functions to further reduce the risk of
Image persistence.
< For long life use of Public Display >
Image Sticking of LCD Panel
When LCD panel is operated continuously for long hours, a trace of electric charge remains near the electrode inside LCD, and
residual or “ghost” image of previous image may be observed. (Image Persistence)
Image Persistence is not permanent, but when a fixed image is displayed for a long period, ionic impurities inside LCD are
accumulated along the displayed image, and it is observed permanently. (Image Sticking)
Recommendations
For preventing the fast transition to Image Sticking, and for longer life usage of LCD, the following are recommended.
1. Fixed images should not be displayed for long periods of time, and changed to another images with short cycle.
2. When the monitor is not in use, please turn it off using the remote control, use the Power Management Function or use the
Schedule Function.
3. Reducing the environmental temperature is effective for long life use.
When a Protection board (glass, acrylic) is installed over the LCD surface, enclosed into the box / wall, or the monitors are
stacked, please utilize the temperature sensors inside monitor.
To reduce the environmental temperature, the monitor should be set Low Brightness or Cooling Fan “ON” by using the
Screen saver Function.
4. Please use “Screen Saver Mode” of monitor.
< HOW TO SETUP SCHEDULE >
Using the “SCHEDULE” function allows you to set up to seven different scheduled time intervals when the LCD Monitor will be
activated.
You can select the time the monitor turns on and turns off, the day of week the monitor is activated, and which input source the
monitor will use for each scheduled activation period. A check mark in the box next to the number of the schedule
indicates that the selected schedule is in effect.
To select which schedule to set, use the up/down arrows to move the number (1 to 7) of the schedule.
Use the (+) and (-) buttons to move the cursor horizontally within the particular schedule. Use the (
) and (
) buttons to
increase time and select input port. The “SET” button is used to make a selection.
If you create a schedule but do not want to use a power on time, select “--” in the “ON” time slot.
If you do not want to use a power off time select “--” in the OFF time slot.
If there is no input selected (“--” showing in the input spot) the input from the previous schedule will be used.
The selection of EVERY DAY within a schedule takes priority over other schedules that are set up to operate weekly.
When schedules are overlapping, scheduled Power ON time has priority over scheduled Power OFF time.
If there are two schedules programmed for the same time, then the highest numbered schedule has priority.
When the “OFF TIMER” (see page 29) is set, the “SCHEDULE” function is disabled.
