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 set to Dot by dot or CUSTOM.
• 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.

TIPS
• “ERR” is returned when there is no relevant command or
when the command cannot be used in the current state of
the monitor.
• If communication has not been established for reasons
such as a bad connection between the PC and monitor,
nothing is returned (not even ERR).
• “ERR” may be returned when a command cannot be
received correctly due to interference from the surrounding
environment.
Please ensure that the system or software retries the
command if this occurs.
• If no monitor has been assigned the designated ID number
(e.g. if the command IDSL0002
is used, but no monitor
with ID number: 2 is found), no response is returned.
If execution of the command is taking some time

• When executing ALL RESET, set the timeout period to 30

• When turning the power on while the POWER ON DELAY
function is in use, set the timeout period to the POWER ON
DELAY period + 10 seconds or longer.
Advanced operation
This section explains commands for daisy chain connection.
The basic communication procedure is the same as in the
“One-to-one connection with a PC” section.
nID numbers
You can assign a unique ID number to each monitor (see
page 23). This allows you to control a particular monitor in a
daisy chain of monitors.
You can assign ID numbers either from the menu screen or
from the PC using RS-232 cable.
[Example]
ID number: 1
Return code
(0DH, 0AH)
When the following commands are used, “WAIT” is returned.
In this case, a value will be returned if you wait a while. Do not
send any command during this period.
No ID number is attached to WAIT response.
• Commands which return WAIT:
1. When repeater control is used
2. When an IDSL or IDLK command is used
3. When one of the following commands is used: RSET,
INPS, ASNC, WIDE, PXSL, POWR, MWIN, MWIP,
EMHV, EPHV, ESHV, ENLG
L
• After OK or ERR is returned, you must send the following
commands.
To set a timeout for the command response, specify 10
seconds or longer.
When connecting multiple monitors in a daisy chain, set the
timeout to at least the product of the monitor’s position from
the computer multiplied by 10 seconds.
Example) 3rd monitor from computer: 30 seconds or longer.
• Provide an interval of 100 ms or more between the
command response and the transmission of the next
command.

If monitors are connected as shown above, you can
execute commands like “Set the volume of the monitor with
ID 4 to 20”.
When designating ID numbers for a set of monitors linked in a
daisy chain, 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]
ID number: 3
ID number: 2 ID number: 4 ID number: 1

nCommands for ID control
The command examples shown on this page assume the
following connection and ID number set up.
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.
IDLK.........The parameter of this command sets the ID
number of the monitor. The monitor is subject to all
subsequent commands.
Example:
← with ID number: 2.
WAIT
←
OK
002
ID number: 1
Sets volume of monitor with ID
← number: 2 to 30.*
WAIT
← Processing
OK
ID number: 2 ID number: 3
ID number: 4
OK
002
Sets volume of monitor with ID
← number: 2 to 20.*
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)
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
Sets volume of monitor with ID
number: 2 to 30.
VOLM0030
←
WAIT
← Processing
OK
002
OK response from monitor with ID
← number: 2
VOLM0020
← Sets volume to 20.
OK
← number: 1 (the one directly connected
001
The volume of the monitor with ID
to the PC) is set to 20.*
* The IDSL command is effective only once, for the
immediately succeeding command.
002
IDLK0000
← Canceling fixed ID number setting
WAIT
← Canceling IDLK
OK
002
← Cancelation complete
VOLM0010
OK
32
← Found monitor with ID number: 2
WAIT
You can automatically assign ID numbers by using the IDST
command with the Repeater control (see “Repeater control”
on page 33).
For example, using the command “IDST001+” automatically
sets the ID numbers, as shown below.
[Example]
E
Searching for monitor with ID number:
2
VOLM0030
VOLM0020
TIPS
Following commands are for the monitor
IDLK0002
001
The volume of the monitor with ID number:
← 1 (the one directly connected to the PC) is
set to 10. (IDLK is canceled.)
* The IDLK command remains effective until it is
canceled, or power is shut off.
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)
← (Parameter has no meaning.)
IDCK0000
ID : 001
IDLK : 002
IDCK000 +
WAIT
ID : 001
IDLK : 000
ID : 002
IDLK : 000
ID : 003
IDLK : 000
ID : 004
IDLK : 000
Returned response. The ID
← number is also displayed on the
monitor screen.
← Repeater control. (If a command
is used with repeater control, ID
designation using IDSL or IDLK
is canceled.)
Controlling the Monitor with a PC (RS-232C)
nRepeater 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. You can use Repeater
control function without assigning ID numbers.
[Example]
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
D-SUB”.
nRepeater 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
10
001
20
002
30
003
30
004
Volume settings for all
monitors are returned.
TIPS
• If repeater control is used during ID designation (IDSL,
IDLK), the ID designation is canceled.

page 23.)
There is a picture but no sound.
• Is the sound muted?
• Make sure the volume is not set to minimum.
• Are audio cables connected properly?
• Is the setting of AUDIO SELECT on the SETUP menu
correct? (See page 23.)
Unstable video.
• The signal may be incompatible.
• Try the automatic screen adjustment when the D-SUB is
used.
The video from the 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 page
51.)

appear properly.
• Is the video cable (Y/Cb/Cr) connected correctly?
• Is the input mode set to COMPONENT?
The video will not appear correctly if the input mode is set
to VIDEO.
The video from video input terminal does not appear
properly.
• Is the input mode set to VIDEO?
The video will not appear correctly if the input mode is set
to COMPONENT.
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 video from the DVI-D input terminal does not appear
properly.
• Is the input signal compatible with this monitor? (See page
51.)
• Turn off the power to the connected equipment and then
turn the power on again.
• If the monitors are connected in a daisy chain, turn off the
power to all the monitors connected in a daisy chain and
then turn the power on again.
45
E
Troubleshooting
The Power LED is flashing in red and green alternately.
• 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, 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.)
• 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 7.)
- 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.

Mounting Precautions
(For SHARP dealers and service engineers)
• When installing, removing or moving the monitor, ensure that this is carried out by at least 2 people.
• Be sure to use a wall-mount bracket designed or designated for mounting the monitor.
• This monitor is designed to be installed on a concrete wall or pillar. Reinforced work might be necessary for some materials
such as plaster / thin plastic board / wood before starting installation.
• This monitor and bracket must be installed on a wall which can endure at least 4 times or more the weight of the monitor.
Install by the most suitable method for the material and the structure.
• To attach a VESA-compliant mounting bracket, use M6 screws that are 5/16 inch (8 mm) to 3/8 inch (10 mm) longer than the
thickness of the mounting bracket.
• Do not use an impact driver.
• When moving the monitor, hold the parts marked by
below. Do not hold the LCD panel. This may cause product
damage, failure, or injury.
• After mounting, please carefully ensure the monitor is secure, and not able to come loose from the wall or mount.
• Do not use any screw holes other than VESA holes for installation.
