Precautions
Safety -----------------------------------------
Installation -----------------------------------
Should any liquid or solid object fall into the cabinet,

be used for several days or more. To disconnect the
cord, pull it out by the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
Theunit is not designed tobewaterproof.
Exposure to rain or water may damage the unit.
Allow adequate air circulation to prevent internal heat
build-up. Do not place the unit on surfaces (rugs,
blankets, etc.) or near materials(curtains, draperies)
that may block the ventilation holes.
Height and vertical linearity controls located at the
rear panel are for special adjustments by qualified
personnel only.
Cleaning -------------------------------------Clean the unit with a slightly damp soft cloth.
Use a mild household detergent. Never use strong
solvents such as thinner or benzine as they might

Connector to the video output of a VCR or another monitor (for loop-through
connection) or to a video camera.
Loop-through output of the VIDEO IN connector . Connector the video input of
another monitor or a VCR.
Note: The impedance is automatically set to 75 ohm by the input of a signal on the
