DEAR SHARP CUSTOMER
Thank you for your purchase of the Sharp LCD product. To ensure safety and many
years of trouble-free operation of your product, please read the Safety Precautions
carefully before using this product.
IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Electricity is used to perform many useful functions, but it can also cause personal injuries and property
damage if improperly handled. This product has been engineered and manufactured with the highest
priority on safety. However, improper use can result in electric shock and/or fire. In order to prevent
potential danger, please observe the following instructions when installing, operating and cleaning the
product. To ensure your safety and prolong the service life of your LCD product, please read the following
precautions carefully before using the product.
1. Read instructions—All operating instructions must be read and understood before the product is
operated.
2. Keep this manual in a safe place—These safety and operating instructions must be kept in a safe
place for future reference.
3. Observe warnings—All warnings on the product and in the instructions must be observed closely.
4. Follow instructions—All operating instructions must be followed.
5. Cleaning—Unplug the power cord from the AC outlet before cleaning the product. Use a damp
cloth to clean the product. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
6. Attachments—Do not use attachments not recommended by the manufacturer. Use of inadequate
attachments can result in accidents.
7. Water and moisture—Do not use the product near water, such as bathtub, washbasin, kitchen
sink and laundry tub, swimming pool and in a wet basement.
8. 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 the product. Use only a cart, stand, tripod, bracket or table recommended by the
manufacturer or sold with the product.
9. When relocating the product placed on a cart, it must be moved with utmost care. Sudden stops,
excessive force and uneven floor surface can cause the product to fall from the
cart.
10. Ventilation—The vents and other openings in the cabinet are designed for
ventilation. Do not cover or block these vents and openings since insufficient
ventilation can cause overheating and/or shorten the life of the product. Do not
place the product on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface, since they can
block ventilation openings. This product is not designed for built-in installation; do
not place the product in an enclosed place such as a bookcase or rack, unless
proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer’s instructions are followed.
11. Power source—This product must operate on a power source specified on the
specification label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply used in your home, consult your
dealer or local power company. For units designed to operate on batteries or another power
source, refer to the operating instructions.
12. Power cord protection—The power cords must be routed properly to prevent people from stepping
on them or objects from resting on them. Check the cords at the plugs and product.
13. If the AC adapter is misplaced or needs to be replaced, obtain the same type of adapter from a
SHARP service center or your dealer.
14. If you plan to use a 13-VDC power supply unit other than the AC adapter supplied with the
product, make sure the power supply unit provides stable voltage with minimum fluctuations.
Unstable power supply can cause problems in the product.
15. The LCD panel used in this product is made of glass. Therefore, it can break when the product is
dropped or applied with impact. Be careful not to be injured by broken glass pieces in case the
LCD panel breaks.
16. Overloading—Do not overload AC outlets or extension cords. Overloading can cause fire or
electric shock.
17. Entering of objects and liquids—Never insert an object into the product through vents or openings.
High voltage flows in the product, and inserting an object can cause electric shock and/or short
internal parts. For the same reason, do not spill water or liquid on the product.
4
18. Servicing—Do not attempt to service the product yourself. Removing covers can expose you to
high voltage and other dangerous conditions. Request a qualified service person to perform
servicing.
19. Repair—If any of the following conditions occurs, unplug the power cord from the AC outlet, and
request a qualified service person to perform repairs.
a. When the power cord or plug is damaged.
b. When a liquid was spilled on the product or when objects have fallen into the product.
c. When the product has been exposed to rain or water.
d. When the product does not operate properly as described in the operating instructions.
Do not touch the controls other than those described in the operating instructions. Improper
adjustment of controls not described in the instructions can cause damage, which often requires
extensive adjustment work by a qualified technician.
e. When the product has been dropped or damaged.
f. When the product displays an abnormal condition. Any noticeable abnormality in the product
indicates that the product needs servicing.
20. Replacement parts—In case the product needs replacement parts, make sure that the service
person uses replacement parts specified by the manufacturer, or those with the same characteristics and performance as the original parts. Use of unauthorized parts can result in fire, electric
shock and/or other danger.
21. Safety checks—Upon completion of service or repair work, request the service technician to
perform safety checks to ensure that the product is in proper operating condition.
22. Heat sources—Keep the product away from heat sources such as radiators, heaters, stoves and
other heat-generating products (including amplifiers).
23. Polarization—This AC adapter may be equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a
plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way.
This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the
plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
The LCD panel is a very high technology product with 921,600 thin film transistors, giving you fine
picture details.
Occasionally, a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen as a fixed point of blue, green or
red.
Please note that this does not affect the performance of your product.

(DC 13 V)
Notes:
■ Use a commercially available AC plug adapter, if necessary, depending on the design of the wall.
■ Always turn the main power switch of the LCD monitor to OFF when connecting the AC adapter.
■ Always unplug the AC adapter from the product and power outlet when not being used for a long period of time.
Batteries for Remote Control
If the remote control fails to operate monitor functions, replace the batteries in the remote control.
1
Open the battery
cover.
■ Slide the cover while
pressing down.
2
Insert batteries (two “AAA”
size (UM/SUM-4) batteries,
supplied with product).
3
Close the battery

■ Place batteries with their
terminals corresponding to
the (+) and (–) indications
in the battery compartment.
Caution!
Cautions regarding batteries
Improper use of batteries can result in a leakage of chemicals and/or explosion. Be sure to follow the
instructions below.
• Place batteries with their terminals corresponding to the (+) and (–) indications.
• Different types of batteries have different characteristics. Do not mix batteries of different types.
• Do not mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new batteries can shorten the life of new batteries
and/or cause old batteries to leak chemicals.
• Remove batteries when they become weak.
Chemicals that leak from batteries can cause a rash. If chemical leakage is found, wipe with a cloth.
• The batteries supplied with the product may have a shorter life expectancy due to storage conditions.
• If the remote control is not used for an extended period of time, remove batteries from the remote
