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.
•When using the screen-size switching function of this monitor, 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). Please consider this point when selecting the screen size.
•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 or top of the screen. This is due to the characteristics of the software, and is not a
malfunction.
•Depending on the original image size (e.g. CinemaScope size), black bands may remain at the top and bottom of
the screen.

Controlling the Monitor with a PC (Continued)
Advanced operation
This section explains commands for daisy chain connection. The basic communication procedure is the
same as in the “Basic operation” section.
<ID numbers>
You can assign a unique ID number to each monitor (see page 30). This allows you to control a particular
monitor in a daisy chain of monitors.
Up to 25 monitors can be connected, depending on the length of RS-232C cables and installation
environment.
You can assign ID numbers either from the menu screen (using the remote control) or from the PC using
RS-232C cable.
[Example]
PC
ID number: 1
ID number: 2
ID number: 3
ID number: 4
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]
PC
E
38
ID number: 3
ID number: 2
ID number: 4
ID number: 1
ENGLISH
<Commands for ID control>
The command examples shown on this page assume the following connection and ID number set up.
PC
ID number: 1
ID number: 2
ID number: 3
ID number: 4
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.
Note
After linking monitors, you can automatically assign ID numbers by using the IDST command with
the Repeater control (see “Repeater control” on page 41).
[Example]
PC
Set 1
Set 2
Set 3
Set 4
If you connect monitors as shown above, and use the command “IDST001+”, ID numbers will be set
automatically, as shown below.
[Example]
PC
ID number: 1
ID number: 2
ID number: 3
ID number: 4
IDST001+ ← ID setting command with repeater control
WAIT
OK
001 ← “OK” response from ID number: 1
OK
002 ← “OK” response from ID number: 2
OK
003 ← “OK” response from ID number: 3
OK
004 ← “OK” response from ID number: 4 (End)
39
E
Controlling the Monitor with a PC (Continued)
IDSL........ The parameter of this command sets the ID number of the monitor.
The monitor is subject to the next command.
Example:
IDSL0002 ←The next command is for the monitor with ID number: 2.
WAIT
←Searching for monitor with ID number: 2
OK
002 ←Found monitor with ID number: 2
VOLM0030 ←Sets volume of monitor with ID number: 2 to 30.

command.
IDLK........ The parameter of this command sets the ID number of the monitor.
The monitor is subject to all subsequent commands.
Example:
IDLK0002 ←Following commands are for the monitor with ID number: 2.
WAIT ←Searching for monitor with ID number: 2
OK
002 ←Found monitor with ID number: 2
VOLM0030 ←Sets volume of monitor with ID number: 2 to 30.

(the one directly connected to the PC) is set to 10. (IDLK is canceled.)
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)
IDCK0000 ←(Parameter has no meaning.)
ID:001 IDLK:002 ←Returned response. The ID number is also displayed on the monitor screen.
IDCK000+ ←Repeater control

<Repeater control>
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.
The number of connectable monitors varies depending on the length of the cable used and the
surrounding environment.
You can use Repeater control function without assigning ID numbers.
[Example]
PC
Set 1
Set 2
Set 3
Set 4
If monitors are connected as shown above, you can execute a command like “Set all monitors’ input
settings to DVI: 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
OK
003
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
001
10
002
20
003
30
004
30
Volume settings for all monitors are returned.
TIPS
•If repeater control is used during ID designation (IDSL, IDLK), the ID designation is canceled.

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.
There is no picture or sound.
Remote control does not work.
Sound from left and right speakers is
reversed.

Troubleshooting (Continued)
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-temperature-related 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, you can reset the monitor to normal
operation by turning it on again using the POWER button on the remote control unit or the power
switch on the front panel. The monitor, however, will enter standby mode again if the cause of the
temperature rise is not eliminated.
• 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.
Cracking sound
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.

DDC (plug and play)
The monitor supports the VESA DDC (Display Data Channel) standard.
DDC is a signal standard for plug and play between monitors and computers. Information about
resolution and other parameters is exchanged between the two. This function can be used if the
computer supports DDC and it has been configured to detect plug-and-play monitors.
There are several types of DDC, depending on the communication method used. This monitor supports
DDC2B.
