THREE YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
For Plasma Displays
Congratulations on your purchase of a Runco video product and welcome to the Runco family! We believe Runco produces
“The World’s Finest Home Theater Products.” With proper installation, setup and care, you should enjoy many years of
unparalleled video performance.
This is a LIMITED WARRANTY as defined in the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. Please read it carefully and retain it with your
other important documents.

WHAT IS COVERED UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY:
EL
IM
IN
A
R
SERVICE LABOR: Runco will pay for service labor by a Runco Authorized Service Center when needed as a result of a
manufacturing defect for a period of three (3) years from the effective date of delivery to the end user (excluding the plasma
glass panel).
PARTS (not including plasma glass panel): Runco will provide new or rebuilt replacement parts for the parts that fail due to
defects in materials or workmanship for a period of three (3) years from the effective date of delivery to the end user. Such
replacement parts are then subsequently warranted for the remaining portion (if any) of the original warranty period.
PLASMA GLASS PANEL: Runco will pay for service labor by a Runco Authorized Service Center when needed as a result of a
manufacturing defect for a period of one (1) year from the effective date of delivery to the end user. In addition, Runco will
provide new or rebuilt replacement parts for the parts that fail due to defects in materials or workmanship for a period of one (1)
year from the effective date of delivery to the end user. Such replacement parts are then subsequently warranted for the
remaining portion (if any) of the original warranty period.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY:
PR
Image burn-in on plasma display panels is specifically excluded from coverage under this Limited Warranty. Image burn-in is
the result of misuse of the product and therefore cannot be repaired under the terms of this Limited Warranty.
Normal viewing material such as television/satellite broadcasts, videotape or DVDs (not put into pause for extended periods of
time) will not cause damage to your display under normal conditions. Many DVD players are also equipped with screen savers
for this reason.
TO AVOID IMAGE RETENTION (Burn-in): Please ensure that still images are left on your plasma display panel for no more
than a few minutes. Also ensure that images displayed in the 4:3 aspect ratio mode (black or gray stripes, but no picture
information is present on the left and right edges of the screen) are used as infrequently as possible. This will prevent
permanent image burns on your plasma display panel, which can be seen permanently under certain conditions once burn-in
has occurred.
The types of images to avoid include video games, still images and computer screens with stationary tool bars and icons. (This
is why computers are equipped with screen savers – to prevent still images from burning into the monitor’s phosphors after
being displayed continuously for an extended period of time).
This Limited Warranty only covers failure due to defects in materials and workmanship that occur during normal use and does
not cover normal maintenance. This Limited Warranty does not cover cabinets or any appearance items; failure resulting from
accident, misuse, abuse, neglect, mishandling, misapplication, faulty or improper installation or setup adjustments; improper
maintenance, alteration, improper use of any input signal; damage due to lightning or power line surges, spikes and
brownouts; damage that occurs during shipping or transit; or damage that is attributed to acts of God. In the case of remote
control units, damage resulting from leaking, old, damaged or improper batteries is also excluded from coverage under this
Limited Warranty.
CAUTION: THIS LIMITED WARRANTY ONLY COVERS RUNCO PRODUCTS PURCHASED FROM RUNCO AUTHORIZED
DEALERS. ALL OTHER PRODUCTS ARE SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED FROM COVERAGE UNDER THIS WARRANTY.
PlasmaWall XP Series Owner’s Operating Manual
iii
MOREOVER, DAMAGE RESULTING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY FROM IMPROPER INSTALLATION OR SETUP IS
SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED FROM COVERAGE UNDER THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT INSTALLATION
AND SETUP WORK BE PERFORMED ONLY BY AN AUTHORIZED RUNCO DEALER TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS UNDER
THIS WARRANTY. THIS WILL ALSO ENSURE THAT YOU ENJOY THE FINE PERFORMANCE OF WHICH YOUR RUNCO
PRODUCT IS CAPABLE WHEN INSTALLED AND CALIBRATED BY RUNCO AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL.
RIGHTS, LIMITS AND EXCLUSIONS:
EL
IM
IN
A
R
Y
Runco limits its obligations under any implied warranties under state laws to a period not to exceed the warranty period. There
are no express warranties. Runco also excludes any obligation on its part for incidental or consequential damages related to
the failure of this product to function properly. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, and
some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages. So the above limitations or
exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from
state to state.
EFFECTIVE WARRANTY DATE:
This warranty begins on the effective date of delivery to the end user. For your convenience, keep the original bill of sale as
evidence of the purchase date.
IMPORTANT – WARRANTY REGISTRATION:
Please fill out and mail your warranty registration card. It is imperative that Runco knows how to reach you promptly if we
should discover a safety problem or product update for which you must be notified.
CONTACT A RUNCO AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER TO OBTAIN SERVICE:
PR
Repairs made under the terms of this Limited Warranty covering your Runco video product will be performed at the location of
the product, during usual working hours, providing location of product is within normal operating distance from a Runco
Authorized Service Center. In some instances it may be necessary for the product to be returned to the Runco factory for
repairs. If, solely in Runco’s judgment, location of product to be repaired is beyond normal operating distance of the closest
Runco Authorized Service Center, or the repair requires the unit be returned to the Runco factory, it is the owner’s
responsibility to arrange for shipment of the product for repair. These arrangements must be made through the selling Runco
Dealer. If this is not possible, contact Runco directly for a Return Authorization number and shipping instructions. Runco will
return product transportation prepaid in the United States, unless no product defect is discovered. In that instance, shipping
costs will be the responsibility of the owner.

PlasmaWall XP Series Owner’s Operating Manual
Introduction
The PlasmaWall XP Series Flat-Panel Plasma Display Monitor and DHD Controller
establish a higher threshold for flat panel display products. The PlasmaWall XP Series is
available in three sizes, including our largest and highest-resolution plasma ever, at 103
inches diagonal and 1920 x 1080 (1080p) native resolution.

Description, Features
and Benefits
The PlasmaWall takes picture quality to a whole new level, boasting our brightest picture,
best contrast ratio, deepest black levels and most spot-on high definition colorimetry ever!
In addition, sophisticated 16-bit digital video processing, a new milestone, results in 4096
steps of graduation for seamless images completely devoid of the primitive "solarization"
and "stair stepping" characteristics previously plaguing digital flat panel displays.

The PlasmaWall features all of the Runco technologies you have come to expect from the
World's Finest Home Theater Products. Discrete, multiple aspect ratio control includes
VirtualWide™ for viewing 4:3 content in widescreen without appreciable picture
degradation, as well as ISF(ccc) calibration modes to easily maintain ISF standards. The
automation interface includes RS-232 control with discrete aspect ratio, input and power
on/off selection.
The included DHD with HDMI Digital Video Controller/Processor provides a pure digital
signal path from input to output as well as a broad array of video input choices, all
available from its position in the equipment rack, with only digital video and command
cables running to the display itself.
The PlasmaWall not only represents a leap forward in high definition flat-panel technology,
but our engineering advances in plasma design ensure that it will enjoy a long life in any
installation, with operation extending to as much as 60,000 hours. At less than 5-3/4
inches thin, the PlasmaWall provides unlimited installation flexibility as well.

Considerations
Proper installation of your PlasmaWall will ensure the highest possible picture quality.
Whether you are installing the PlasmaWall temporarily or permanently, you should take the
following into account to ensure that it performs optimally.
Special Requirements for ➤
the XP-103DHD
The extremely large size and high power consumption of the XP-103DHD place unique
demands upon both the installation personnel and the installation site, over and above
those of the 50-inch and 65-inch PlasmaWall models.
Installing the XP-103DHD requires the following:
• Specialized equipment.
EL
IM
IN
A
R
• A dedicated 220VAC circuit.
Y
• Several people familiar with complex mechanical installations.
• A “carry-in” path with sufficient clearances.
• An installation location that can support the weight of both the plasma panel and
mounting hardware (floor pedestal or wall mount).
These and other installation requirements are detailed in a document called Runco
XP-103DHD Installation Site Pre-Qualification, available from your Runco dealer or
representative, or from www.Runco.com. Before proceeding with an XP-103DHD
installation, obtain, read and make sure you understand everything in this document.
High-Altitude Operation ➤
Due to the design of all plasma glass panels made by every manufacturer, and the
interaction between ambient air pressure and the plasma gases contained inside of the
panel, reliable operation of your plasma display cannot be assured during operation at
certain high-altitude locations.
PR
Runco has found the XP-50DHD, XP-65DHD and XP-103DHD to operate reliably at
altitudes of up to 6,000 feet MSL (mean sea level).
Mounting the PlasmaWall ➤
on a Wall or Table
Stand/Floor Pedestal
The XP-50DHDxa and XP-65DHDxa have been found to operate reliably at altitudes of up
to 9,100 feet MSL.
At higher elevations, each panel may react differently, depending upon the altitude, air
pressure, humidity and other meteorological factors. If you are planning to use this
product at a location above 9000 feet, please contact Runco technical support for further
information.
To install the PlasmaWall, you will need either an optional table stand, floor pedestal or
wall-mounting kit. (The XP-103DHD must be either wall-mounted or attached to a floor
pedestal.)
If you do decide to wall-mount the PlasmaWall, ensure that the wall-mount bracket is
installed according to the instructions included with it. The wall must be capable of
supporting a redundant weight factor five (5) times the weight of the display, or be
reinforced.
Runco recommends that this be done by a custom installation specialist.
Note
Use only a Runco-approved wall-mount kit, table stand or floor
pedestal that is specifically designed for your display. Refer to
Parts List on page 4 for ordering information.
18
PlasmaWall XP Series Owner’s Operating Manual
Installation
You can attach your optional mounts or stand to the PlasmaWall in either of two ways:
EL
IM
IN
A
R
Y
• While it is upright.
• As it lies flat with the screen face
down. Place the protective sheet,
which was wrapped around the
plasma monitor when it was
packaged, between the screen and
your work surface to avoid
scratching or otherwise damaging
the screen surface.
PR
In general, minimize or eliminate light sources directed at the display. Contrast ratio in your
images will be noticeably reduced if light directly strikes the display, such as when a shaft
of light from a window or floodlight falls on the image. Images may then appear washed
out and less vibrant.
If you are mounting the PlasmaWall in an enclosure, leave sufficient space on all sides
between it and surrounding objects, as shown in Figure 3-2 or Figure 3-3. This allows heat
to disperse, maintaining the proper operating temperature.

Installation
Here are some other considerations and tips that can help improve your installation, avoid
damage and prolong operating life:
• Keep the ambient temperature constant and below 35°C (95°F). Keep the display away
from heating and/or air conditioning vents. Changes in temperature may cause drifts in
the display circuitry, which may affect performance.
• Keep the PlasmaWall away from devices that radiate electromagnetic energy such as
motors and transformers. Common sources of these include slide projectors,
speakers, power amplifiers and elevators.
• Handle the unit carefully when installing or carrying it. Use the built-in handles; DO NOT
touch or hold the screen face.
Y
• Set the unit away from heat, excessive dust, and direct sunlight.
EL
IM
IN
A
R
• Protect the inside of the unit from liquids and small metal objects. In case of accident,
unplug the power cord and have it serviced by an authorized Service Center.
• Do not hit or scratch the panel surface as this causes flaws on the surface of the
screen.
• For correct installation and mounting it is strongly recommended to use a trained,
authorized dealer.
PR
• To avoid sulfurization, it is strongly recommended not to place the unit in a dressing
room in a public bath or hot spring bath.

The PlasmaWall has been designed to incorporate setup and calibration standards
established by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF). The ISF has developed carefully
crafted, industry-recognized standards for optimal video performance and has
implemented a training program for technicians and installers to use these standards to
obtain optimal picture quality from Runco video display devices. Accordingly, Runco
recommends that setup and calibration be performed by an ISF-certified installation
technician.
All signal types require separate processing. Therefore, you need to calibrate each DHD
Controller input separately.
Note
When you change a picture quality setting, save the change to a
preset afterwards. Otherwise, the change will be lost when a
different input is selected. (Picture quality settings are saved for
each input separately.) For information about saving settings, refer
to Memory Presets on page 43.
Although it may be possible to obtain satisfactory picture quality using the naked eye and
regular program material, Runco recommends using the following calibration tools for best
results:
• External test pattern source – Ovation Multimedia, Video Essentials or AVIA test DVD
(or equivalent).
PR
• A blue filter (provided with many test DVDs), for color level and tint adjustments.
Connect your test pattern source to the input that you are calibrating and proceed as
follows. Perform the adjustments in the order listed here.
Brightness: On your external test pattern source, select a PLUGE pattern. (PLUGE is an
acronym for “Picture Line-Up Generation Equipment.”) Figure 4-2 shows a typical PLUGE
pattern.

Sharpness
Operation
PLUGE patterns vary but generally consist of some combination of black, white and gray
areas against a black background. The example above includes two vertical bars and four
shaded boxes.
Select Brightness from the Picture menu and press ENTER. Adjust the brightness so that:
• The darkest black bars disappear into the background.
• The dark gray areas are barely visible.
• The lighter gray areas are clearly visible.
• The white areas are a comfortable level of true white.
• The image contains only black, gray and white (no color).

Tint: Tint or “hue” is essentially the ratio of red to green in the color portion of the image.
When tint is decreased, the image appears redder; when it is increased the image
appears greener. To set the tint, select Tint and press ENTER. While looking at the color
bar pattern through a blue filter, adjust the tint level until the cyan and magenta color bars
(on either side of the green bar) appear to be a single shade of blue.

Overscan: Image Overscan pushes the outside edge of the active picture area of the
video signal out beyond the edge of the display area.
Some television programs are produced based on the assumption that older television
sets may not display the outer edges of the broadcast picture area. Over scan effectively
trims away these inactive, outer edges and enlarges the remaining portion of the image to
fill the display area.

• Gain: Use the Gain controls to correct color imbalances in the bright areas of the
image. A good way to do this is to use a test pattern consisting mostly of solid white
areas, such as an 80 IRE “window” pattern. If the white areas contain traces of red or
blue, decrease the Gain for that color.
• Offset: Use the Offset controls in the White Balance sub-menu to correct color
imbalances in the dark areas of the image. A good way to do this is to use a test
pattern consisting mostly of dark gray areas, such as a 30 IRE “window” pattern. If the
gray areas contain traces of red or blue, decrease the Offset for that color.

• Gamma: The default gamma setting (1) is correct for almost all signals and conditions.
If excess ambient light washes out the image and it becomes difficult or impossible to
see details in dark areas, lower the gamma setting to compensate. This will improve
contrast while maintaining good details for blacks. Conversely, if the image is washed
out and unnatural, with excessive detail in black areas, increase the setting. Again,
good gamma improves contrast while maintaining good details for blacks and whites.
• Color Temp.: Select Color Temp from the Display Color menu to adjust the color
temperature. For most situations, the appropriate setting is (1). The higher setting (2)
produces a “bluer” picture; the lower one (0) a “warmer” picture with more pronounced
red and orange hues.
• AGC (Automatic Gain Control): AGC increases the brightness of dark signals
automatically. To enable AGC, set it to 1 (on). To disable it, set it to 0 (off).
• Input Level: The Input Level control allows you to adjust parts which are extremely
bright and hard to see. (This cannot be adjusted when the input signal is digital.)
ISF Night - Input Image: The Input Image controls are similar to those in the Picture
menu, but are accessible only by entering the Calibration menu passcode. This makes it
possible to restore the picture quality settings to what they were when the display was
installed, simply by recalling the “ISF Night” preset.

ISF Night - Input Color: The Input Color controls are similar to those in the Display Color
menu (see above), but adjust the color balance at the DHD Controller (as opposed to the
display device). These settings are also saved independently for each input.
• Gain/Offset: These controls operate similarly to those in the ISF Night - Display
Color menu (see above), but affect the Y, Pb and Pr signal components rather than the
red and blue channels.
• Chroma Delay: use the Chroma Delay control to correct a mis-aligned image from a
Composite, S-Video or Component video source. Chroma delay in an image causes
color shifts to occur to the left of the vertical edge transitions, producing artificial
shadows or a “halo” effect. If necessary, adjust this setting to eliminate them.
EL

• Phase: Adjust the phase if the image (usually from an RGB source) shows shimmer or
“noise.” Pixel phase adjusts the phase of the pixel sampling clock relative to the
incoming signal. The effect of this control is similar to that of a tracking control on a
VCR.
For best results, use a good test pattern such as a smooth gray consisting of a clear
pattern of black and white pixels, or a similar “half on, half off” graphic image. (You may
notice that you can stabilize the image at more than one point. Use either setting in this
case.)
• Noise Filter: To apply noise filtering to the input signal, select Noise Filter from the
Input Color menu. The Noise Filter is useful for clearing up noisy images from 480i
video sources.
Use the left- or right-arrow buttons to select the desired amount of noise reduction,
keeping in mind that higher settings (which reduce high frequencies) may also “soften”
the image.

can use a single remote and change the IR code as needed to address a specific
device.
Do not change the “Type” setting in this menu.
When you change a remote code on the DHD Controller, you must re-program your
remote control to send that same code. To do this:
1. Using a straightened paper clip or similar object,
press and hold the CODE button on the remote

HD Format: If the characteristics of the incoming signal on the HD1 or HD2 inputs are
known, select HD Format from the Service menu and set them as described below. Doing
so can reduce the time it takes the DHD Controller to switch from HD to 480i signals or
vice versa.
This is generally not necessary unless the DHD Controller – for whatever reason – has
difficulty determining the color space (RGB or YUV), bandwidth or resolution of the
incoming HD signal. In most situations, the Auto settings work well.

PR
0 = No transition; menus abruptly appear and disappear.
1 = Menus fade in and out.
2 = “Checkerboard” dissolve; menus appear and disappear in sections.
3 = “Window shade” effect; menus are drawn on a diagonal from top left to bottom
right, and retract in the opposite direction.
• Timeout - Short/Long: These settings control how long the OSD menus stay on
screen. Select a time-out period of from 2 to 60 seconds.
• Side Bar Color: This controls the color of the inactive image area. The range is from
-100 (black) to 100 (white).
The inactive image area is on either side of the active image area when using the
Standard 4:3 aspect ratio (or the entire screen when no incoming video signal is
present).
• Film Mode: Enable Film Mode to smooth out moving images from interlaced,
standard-definition (SD) sources. In most cases, the PlasmaWall detects the proper
“pull-down” rate and vertical frequency. However, if your source is jittery and/or tearing
you may wish to enable Film Mode to ensure stable processing for that source.

Wipe the display and remote control gently with a soft cloth. In the case of excessive dirt
buildup, dampen a soft cloth with a diluted neutral cleaning detergent and after wringing
the cloth thoroughly, wipe the component and then dry it with a dry soft cloth.
After dusting, wipe the screen gently using the supplied cleaning cloth or another soft
cloth (cotton, flannel etc.). Do not use tissue or a rough cloth. The screen surface is easily
scratched; do not rub it or hit it with a hard object.
Cleaning the Screen
If you clean the surface of the screen with a wet cloth, water droplets on the surface may
enter into the product and cause a malfunction.
PR
As a general rule, use a vacuum cleaner about once a month to clean the vents on the
rear panel of the display of dust buildup (set the vacuum cleaner to its weakest setting
when doing this). If not removed, accumulated dust can cause the internal temperature to
increase, resulting in possible breakdown or fire.

6. Serial Communications
To interface the PlasmaWall with a home theater automation/control system or a PC
running terminal emulation software, connect it to the RS-232 output of the DHD
Controller as shown in Figure 3-5. Connect your control system or PC to the RS-232 input
of the DHD Controller as shown in Figure 3-11.
6.1
RS-232 Connection
and Port Configuration
EL
IM
IN
A
R
Y
Configure the RS-232 controller or PC serial port as follows: no parity, eight (8) data bits,
one (1) stop bit and no flow control. Set the baud rate to 19200, to match that of the DHD
Controller RS-232 port.
Serial commands to the DHD Controller take the following form:
• Commands are not case-sensitive.
• For a single command that takes no parameters, type the command followed by a
carriage return; for example, to set the aspect ratio to Letterbox, type
LETTERBOX <Enter>.
• For a single command that takes a parameter, type the command, a space or a
comma and the desired value followed by a carriage return; for example, to set the
brightness to -10, type BRIGHTNESS -10 <Enter> or
BRIGHTNESS,-10 <Enter>.
• You can also send a string of multiple commands on a single line, separated by
commas. For example, COMPOSITE,BRIGHTNESS 100,16:9<Enter> switches to
the Composite video input, sets the brightness to 100 and sets the aspect ratio to
16:9. Command strings can be up to 255 characters long.
Avoid combining the ON or POWER 1 commands with other commands
on a single line. After sending ON or POWER 1, allow at least five (5)
seconds for the DHD Controller to power up. If you have enabled the
ISF splash screen (refer to Splash Configure on page 45), allow 15
seconds for the DHD Controller to power up.

Once it does, it will accept and properly execute multiple serial
commands.

Serial Command
Syntax
Serial Communications
Table 6-1 lists the RS-232 command set. The “Parameter (min/max)” column shows the
valid parameter ranges, or “NA” for commands that take no parameters.
When you enter a valid command, the DHD Controller executes it and acknowledges it
with a plus sign on the command line (+ >). When you enter an invalid command – one
that is misspelled or followed by values outside the valid range for that command – the
DHD Controller ignores it and returns a minus sign (- >).
