a three-pronged grounded plug, a plug
with a third (grounding) pin. This plug will
fit only into a grounded power outlet as a
safety feature. If your outlet does not
accommodate the three-wire plug, have
an electrician install the correct outlet, or
use an adapter to ground the appliance
safely. Do not defeat the safety purpose of
the grounded plug.
Do not overload power strips and
extension cords. Overloading can result in
fire or electric shock.
Page5
The wall socket should be installed near
the equipment and should be easily

when it will not be used for a long period
of time. This will protect the X20 LCD
MONITOR from damage due to power
surges.

voltages, the risk of electric shock, and
other hazards. If repair is required, please
contact your dealer and refer all servicing
to qualified service personnel.
