SAFETY GUIDELINES(continued)
Precautions
ENGLISH
● Installation environment
Do not obstruct a ventilation hole.
Do not put the monitor on carpet or blanket, or near a curtain which has a possibility of
obstructing a ventilation hole of the monitor.
Do not put the monitor in the following places.
♦ Hot places such as near heater, place exposed to the direct rays of the sun.
♦ A place where the temperature is widely changing.
♦ Places with soot, dust or high humidity.
♦ Poor air ventilation place.
♦ Place near fire.
♦ A wet place such as bathroom, or shower room.
♦ Place where you can trip over it.
♦ Always vibrating or strongly vibrating places.
♦ Distorted or unstable places.
● How to view the monitor.
If you use the monitor in too dark a room, your eyes may become tired.
Please use it in a reasonably bright room.
Avoid direct rays of the sun to the screen in order to prevent eye fatigue.
Your eyes will get fatigued after viewing the monitor for long.
Relax your eyes by viewing away from the monitor from time to time.
Please watch the monitor in downward direction.
● Note on Afterimages (Burn-in)
The plasma monitor illuminates phosphor to display images. The phosphor has a finite
illumination life. After extended periods of illumination, the brightness of the phosphor
would be degraded to such extent that stationary images would burn into that part of the
screen as grayed-out images.
Tips to prevent such burn-in are:
- Do not display images having sharp brightness differences or high-contrast images,
such as monochrome characters and graphic patterns, for long.
- Do not leave stationary images appearing for long, but try to refresh them at
appropriate intervals of time, or try to move them using screen saver function.
vi
ENGLISH
● How to clean the monitor.
Before cleaning the monitor, turn off the monitor and disconnect the power plug from
the mains.
When cleaning the monitor, do not spray directly the screen or cabinet with cleaner.
Use a clean, dust free, dry and soft cloth. If it is not enough, then use a cloth with nonalcoholic or non-ammoniac detergent.
Do not rub the surface of the screen with ball-point-pen or screw-driver etc.
● Precautions for the monitor
- Use the attached signal-cable when you connect the monitor with PC equipment.
Do not use other signal-cables.
- Confirm the connector is fixed tightly when the signal cable is connected.
Also confirm the screws on the connector are tightened.
- Plug the power cord of the monitor into a different socket from that for other
equipment, such as Radio etc..
- Use a plug with ground terminal and make sure that it connects to the ground.
● Precautions for Radio
- Keep the monitor away from Radio.
- Adjust Radio antennas in order for the monitor not to receive interference.
- The antenna cable of Radio should be kept away from the monitor.
- Use a coaxial cable for antenna.
You can check if this monitor influences Radio receivers by turning off all other
equipment other than the monitor.
If you can find a problem receiving Radio when using the monitor, check the
instructions mentioned above.
● Precaution during transportation
Please pay attention when you transport this monitor because it is heavy.
Furthermore, use the specific carton box and its packaging materials when the monitor is
transported.

ENGLISH
Large-screen, high-definition plasma display panel
The 42-inch color plasma display panel, with a resolution of 1024 (H) x 1024(V) pixels,
creates a high-definition, large-screen (aspect ratio : 16:9) and low-profile flat display.
Free from electromagnetic interferences from geomagnetic sources and ambient power
lines, the panel produces high-quality display images free from color misconvergence and
display distortion.
Multimedia input support
The monitor comes complete with a mini-D-sub terminal and a BNC terminal for RGB
input and with a composite/S terminal and a component terminal for video input, and
even with stereo audio input terminals. It allows hooking up with a number of devices,
from PCs to video gear.
Multiscan converter and Flexible Control LSI
The multiscan converter provides a broad multiscan range of signals, from video signals
(15 kHz) to PC analog video signals. Flexible Control LSI provides better video quality
by processing video signal.
Easy-to-use remote controller
The remote controller included eases the work of setting display controls. Further, the onscreen display system, displays the status of signal reception and display control settings
in an easy-to-view fashion.
Power saving system

screen mode is selected to play certain software, such as a TV program,
the image would appear different from the original. Take this into
consideration when making screen mode choices.
■ Use of this monitor in its enlarged display mode with the wide feature
enabled in coffee shops, hotels and other establishments for commercial
or pubic viewing purposes could infringe on the copyright holder’s right

may disappear and/or appear distorted in some cases. Use the 4:3 mode to
view images, according to the manufacturer’s concept.

● The temperature of the display panel surface is
high.
● There are locations on the screen that are
different from the periphery (*).
*Points that do not light, points with brightness
different from that of the periphery, points with
color different from that of the periphery, etc.
● Vertical stripes appear, depending on the screen
contents.
● Coarse horizontal stripes appear in FULL
display.( durning personal computer signal input)
Point to check
See page
→ When the vertical frequency of the personal
computer is lower than 75Hz, try increasing the
frequency (upper limit: 75Hz). This may improve
the situation in some cases.
→ The plasma display panel is lighting the
phosphors by the discharge of internal radiation.
In some cases, this may cause the temperature
of the panel surface to increase. Please note that
this is not a malfunction.
ENGLISH
Symptom
● Flicker causes stripes to move up and down
→ High-precision technology is used to
manufacturing the plasma display panel but, in
some cases, there are minor defects in some
parts of the screen. Please note that this is not a
malfunction.
→ The plasma display panel is lighting the
phosphors by the discharge of internal radiation.
Depending on the screen contents, in rare cases
this may cause vertical stripes to appear
because of failure to light. Please note that this is
not a malfunction.
→ A visual illusion may cause it. Adjusting the
phase will reduce the horizontal stripes.

Full display only
■ The type of video board or connecting cable used may not allow for correct displays Set
H.POSITION, V.POSITION, CLOCK and PHASE.
■ The monitor may fail to display an animation image correctly when a signal having a vertical
frequency of 60 Hz or higher is input to it.
■ The monitor differentiates the signal modes according to the horizontal and vertical frequencies and
the horizontal and vertical sync signal polarities. Note that different signals having all these elements
alike may be handled as the same signal.
■ Displaying images with more than 512 lines of vertical resolution at Full diplay (compressed display)
can result in the interpolation of stripes. Take care that especially Full displays with a resolution of
1280 x 1024 can result in a completely black or white screen, depending on the pattern.
■ Use of this monitor with the input signal timings specified below is recommended. A predefined
setting may not be reproduced correctly with an extremely long front porch or back porch or with an
extremely short data display time.
