For best viewing conditions sit at least
18" from the ViewPanel.
AVOID TOUCHING THE SCREEN
WITH YOUR FINGERS. Oils from the
skin are difficult to remove.
NEVER REMOVE THE REAR
COVER. The ViewPanel contains highvoltage parts. You may suffer serious
injury if you touch these parts.
Avoid exposing the ViewPanel to direct
sunlight or another heat source. The
ViewPanel should be facing away from
direct sunlight to reduce glare.
Always handle your ViewPanel with care
when moving it.
Getting Started
• Place your ViewPanel in a well ventilated
area. Do not place anything on the
ViewPanel that prevents adequate
dissipation of heat.
• Ensure the area around the ViewPanel is
clean and free of moisture.
• Do not place heavy objects on the
ViewPanel, video cable, or power cord.
• If smoke, abnormal noise, or strange
odor is present, immediately switch the
ViewPanel off and call your dealer or
ViewSonic. It is dangerous to continue
using the ViewPanel.
