Basic Operation
nSwitching the screen size
Even when the screen size is changed, the display may remain the same depending on the input signal.
WIDE
Displays image so it fills the entire screen.
ZOOM 1
An image with a 4:3 aspect ratio is enlarged to fill the entire screen without
changing the aspect ratio. The edges of the image may be cut off.
ZOOM 2
Use this size if ZOOM 1 cuts off the subtitles.
NORMAL
Displays image so it fills the screen without changing the aspect ratio of the input
signals.
Dot by Dot
Displays the dots of the input signals as the corresponding dots on the screen.
TIPS
• Using this monitor’s screen-size switching 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.
• 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).
• 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 of the screen. This is due to the characteristics of the software, and is not a malfunction.
• Depending on the original image size, black bands may remain at the edges of the screen.

Basic Operation
Auto playback of image and audio files (Slideshow)
When the input mode is set to USB and a USB flash drive is inserted in the USB port, the image files in the root folder of the
USB flash drive will be automatically displayed as a slideshow. If there is an audio file in the root folder, the audio file will also
automatically play. If you want to present a slideshow in a different folder, see page 19.
TIPS
• Playback will also start automatically if you change from an input terminal other than USB to USB with a USB flash drive
inserted.
• The types of files that can be played in USB flash drive are as follows:
•

Troubleshooting
If you are experiencing any problem with your display, before
calling for service, please review the following troubleshooting
tips.
There is no picture or sound.
• Is the power cord disconnected? (See page 10.)
• Is the main power switch off? (See page 13.)
• Is the monitor in standby mode (the power LED illuminating
in orange)? (See page 13.)
• Make sure correct input mode is selected. (See page 14.)
• If any external equipment is connected, make sure the
equipment is operating (playing back).
Remote control does not work.
• Are the batteries inserted with polarity (+,-) aligned? (See
page 12.)
• Are the batteries exhausted?
• Point the remote control unit toward the monitor’s remote
control sensor. (See page 12.)
• Is the menu display hidden or is operation disabled? (See
page 21.)
Sound from left and right speakers is reversed.
Sound is heard from only one side.
• Are audio cables connected properly? (See pages 9.)
• Check the setting of BALANCE for AUDIO menu. (See
page 18.)
There is no sound.
• Is the sound muted?
• Make sure the volume is not set to minimum.
• Are audio cables connected properly?
• When a video signal is not input, sound is not output.
Unstable video.
• The signal may be incompatible.
• Try the automatic screen adjustment when the PC D-sub
input terminal is used.
The video from the PC/AV HDMI input terminal does not
appear properly.
• Is the HDMI cable HDMI standard compliant? The monitor
will not work with cables that are not standard compliant.
• Is the input signal compatible with this monitor? (See pages
29 and 30.)
The video from the PC/AV DVI-D input terminal does not
appear properly.
• Is the input signal compatible with this monitor? (See pages
29 and 30.)
• Turn off the power to the connected equipment and then
turn the power on again.
E
26
The video from the AV COMPONENT input terminal does
not appear properly.
• Is the input signal compatible with this monitor? (See page
30.)
Control buttons do not work.
There is no picture.
• Load noises from outside may be interfering with normal
operation. Turn off the power and turn it on after waiting at
least 5 seconds, and then check the operation.
When “AUTO DIMMING” is displayed.
• When the internal temperature of the monitor rises
excessively, the brightness of the backlight automatically
decreases in order to prevent a further temperature rise. If
you attempt to use
to adjust the brightness while the
monitor is in this state, “AUTO DIMMING” is displayed and
you cannot change the brightness.
• Remove the cause of the excessive temperature rise.
The monitor makes a cracking sound.
• You may occasionally hear a 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.
The Power LED is flashing in red and green alternately.
When “TEMPERATURE” is displayed in the corner of the
screen.
• When the internal temperature of the monitor rises
excessively, the brightness of the backlight decreases
automatically in order to prevent high-temperaturerelated problems. When this occurs, “TEMPERATURE” is
displayed on the screen and the Power LED flashes red
and green alternately. (When TEMPERATURE ALERT is
set to OSD & LED. This varies depending on the setting.)
• If the internal temperature rises further, the monitor
automatically enters standby mode. (The Power LED
continues flashing red and green alternately.)
• Remove the cause of the excessive temperature rise.
- If the monitor enters standby mode due to a rise in
temperature, to return to normal display, turn the power
switch off and then back on again. The monitor, however,
will enter standby mode again if the cause of the
temperature rise is not eliminated. (See page 5.)
- 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.

When mounting the monitor, be sure to use a wall-mount bracket that complies with the VESA-compatible mounting method.
SHARP recommends using M6 screws and tighten the screws.
Note that screw hole depth of the monitor is 3/8 inch (10 mm). Loose mounting may cause the product to fall, resulting in
serious personal injuries as well as damage to the product. The screw and hole should come together with over 5/16 inch
(8 mm) length of thread. Use a bracket which has been approved for UL1678 standard, and which can endure at least 4 times
or more the weight of the monitor.
nPower management
This monitor conforms to VESA DPMS and DVI DMPM. Both your video card and computer must support the same standard in
order for the monitor’s power management function to work.

nDDC (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.
