IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
• Water and Moisture — Do not use this product near water - for example,
near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub; in a wet
basement; or near a swimming pool; and the like.
• Stand — Do not place the product on an unstable cart, stand, tripod or table. Placing the product on an
unstable base can cause the product to fall, resulting in serious personal injuries as well as damage to

Troubleshooting
The Problems described below are not always caused by malfunctions. Check the monitor again before
having the monitor serviced.
Problems
There is no picture or sound.
Unstable picture.
• Is a non-compatible signal being input? (See page 49.)
• Try the AUTO SYNC button on the remote control. (See page 27.)
TIMER indicator flashes red.
Power is suddenly turned off.
• The unit’s internal temperature has increased.
• 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. Consult a
Sharp Authorized Dealer about removing internal dust.
• Is “Sleep Timer” and/or “Schedule” set? (See page 43.)
• Check the power control setting. (See pages 34 and 35.)
Power and picture change
automatically.
The unit’s plastic parts make a
cracking noise.
• When the ambient temperature changes, the unit’s plastic parts will
slightly expand or shrink. This will cause a cracking noise. This is
not a fault, it will not affect the unit’s performance.
Cautions regarding use in high and low temperature environments
• When the unit is used in a low temperature space (e.g. room, office), the picture may leave trails or
appear slightly delayed. This is not a malfunction, and the unit will recover when the temperature
returns to normal.
• Do not leave the unit in a hot or cold location. Also, do not leave the unit in a location exposed to direct
sunlight or near a heater, as this may cause the cabinet to deform and the LCD panel to malfunction.
• Storage temperature: -4°F to +140°F (-20°C to +60°C).
This unit is equipped with a microprocessor. Its performance could be adversely affected by incorrect
operation or interference. If this should happen, unplug the unit and plug it in again after more than 5
minutes.
45
Appendix
Solution
• Is the power cord disconnected? (See page 21.)
• Has the power been turned on? (See page 23.)
• Check if you pressed ON on the remote control. (See page 23.)
If the POWER indicator on the monitor lights up red, press ON on
the remote control.
• Power to the external connected devices is off.
• Is the connection to external equipment correct? (See page 16.)
• Is the correct input mode selected? (See page 24.)
• Has the input signal setup been performed correctly after
connection? (See page 16.)
Remote control does not operate. • Are batteries inserted with polarity (+,-) aligned? (See page 22.)
