Crystal Series LCD Installation/Operation Manual
Installation
Proper installation of your Crystal Series LCD will ensure the highest possible picture
quality. Whether you are installing the Crystal Series LCD temporarily or permanently, you
should take the following into account to ensure that it performs optimally.
You can place the Crystal Series LCD on a table or other flat, stable surface, or install it in
an entertainment center.
Some Crystal Series LCD models have holes at the back of the
stand to allow you to secure the LCD panel to the installation
surface using suitable hardware. For maximum safety and
stability, Runco strongly recommends doing this whenever
practical. Refer to Crystal Series LCD Dimensions on page 59
for hole locations.

Installation
Considerations
You can also mount the Crystal Series LCD on a wall.
If you do decide to wall-mount the Crystal Series LCD, ensure that the wall-mount bracket
is installed according to the instructions included with it. The wall must be capable of
supporting a redundant weight factor three (3) times the weight of the display, or be
reinforced.
Wall-Mounting the Crystal
Series LCD
Runco recommends that this be done by a custom installation specialist.
Note
Use only the Runco-approved wall-mount kit designed for your
display.
Ambient Light
Other considerations and tips that can help improve your installation:
Other Considerations
PR
In general, minimize or eliminate light sources directed at the display. Contrast ratio in your
images will be noticeably reduced if light directly strikes the display, such as when a shaft
of light from a window or floodlight falls on the image. Images may then appear washed
out and less vibrant.
• Keep the ambient temperature constant and below 35°C (95°F). Keep the display away
from heating and/or air conditioning vents. Changes in temperature may cause drifts in
the display circuitry, which may affect performance.
• Keep the Crystal Series LCD away from devices that radiate electromagnetic energy
such as motors and transformers. Common sources of these include slide projectors,
speakers, power amplifiers and elevators.
Proceed as follows to connect the Crystal Series LCD to your video sources, external
controller(s) – if present – and AC power.
When connecting your equipment:
• Turn off all equipment before making any connections.
• Use the correct signal cables for each source.
• Ensure that the cables are securely connected. Tighten the thumbscrews on
connectors that have them.
• Use the left audio input when connecting mono audio sources.

Installation
Connecting the Crystal ➤
Series LCD to Source
Components
Connect your video sources to the Crystal Series LCD as shown and described in the
sections that follow.
HDMI Connections: The Crystal Series LCD has four HDMI inputs for connecting a
BD/HD-DVD/DVD player, DTV decoder, personal computer or any other device with an
HDMI or DVI output. Connect such devices as shown in Figure 3-1.
Use the HDMI inputs whenever possible. This ensures the highest
video quality because the signal is carried in the digital domain
throughout the entire signal path, from source component output
into the display.
Y
Tip
This Crystal Series LCD supports the VESA Display Data Channel
(DDC) standard. This standard provides “Plug and Play” capability;
the display and a VESA DDC-compatible computer communicate
their setting requirements, allowing for quick and easy setup.

Use the controls in the Picture Adjust menu to calibrate your Crystal Series LCD for
optimum picture quality.
PR
The Crystal Series LCD has been designed to incorporate setup and calibration standards
established by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF). The ISF has developed carefully
crafted, industry-recognized standards for optimal video performance and has
implemented a training program for technicians and installers to use these standards to
obtain optimal picture quality from Runco video display devices. Accordingly, Runco
recommends that setup and calibration be performed by an ISF-certified installation
technician.
All signal types require separate processing. Therefore, you need to calibrate each input
separately.

When you change a picture quality setting, save the change to a
preset afterwards. Otherwise, the change will be lost when a
different input is selected. (Picture quality settings are saved for
each input and resolution separately.) For information about saving
settings, refer to Save Settings on page 37.
Although it may be possible to obtain satisfactory picture quality using the naked eye and
regular program material, Runco recommends using the following calibration tools for best
results:
• External test pattern source – Ovation Multimedia, Digital Video Essentials or AVIA test
DVD or equivalent.
• A blue filter (provided with many test DVDs), for color level and tint adjustments.
Connect your test pattern source to the input that you are calibrating and proceed as
follows. Perform the adjustments in the order listed here.
Brightness: On your external test pattern source, select a PLUGE pattern. (PLUGE is an
acronym for “Picture Line-Up Generation Equipment.”) Figure 4-2 shows a typical PLUGE
pattern.

Figure 4-2. Typical PLUGE Pattern for Adjusting Brightness
PLUGE patterns vary but generally consist of some combination of black, white and gray
areas against a black background. The example above includes two vertical bars and four
shaded boxes.
Select Brightness from the Picture Adjust menu. Using the left- and right-arrow (
buttons, adjust the brightness so that:
)
• The darkest black bars disappear into the background.
• The dark gray areas are barely visible.
• The lighter gray areas are clearly visible.
• The white areas are a comfortable level of true white.
PR
• The image contains only black, gray and white (no color).
Contrast: On your external test pattern source, select a stepped, gray-bar pattern like the
one shown in Figure 4-3.
Figure 4-3. Typical Gray Bar Pattern for Adjusting Contrast
Select Contrast from the Picture Adjust menu. Using the left- and right-arrow (

Tint: Tint or “hue” is essentially the ratio of red to green in the color portion of the image.
When tint is decreased, the image appears redder; when it is increased the image
appears greener. To set the tint, select Tint from the Picture Adjust menu. While looking at
the color bar pattern through a blue filter, adjust the tint level until the cyan and magenta
color bars (on either side of the green bar) appear to be a single shade of blue.

Sharpness: “Sharpness” is the amount of high-frequency detail in the image. To adjust
sharpness, select Sharpness from the Picture Adjust menu and press ENTER. On your
external test pattern source, select a pattern like the one shown in Figure 4-5. Adjust as
needed, looking for white edges around the transitions from black to gray and different
sized lines in the “sweep” patterns at the top and bottom. Lower the sharpness setting to
eliminate them.
Figure 4-5. Typical Test Pattern for Adjusting Sharpness
DNR: To apply Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) to the input signal, select DNR from the
Picture Adjust menu. Noise reduction is useful for clearing up noisy RGB images such as
those from a PC. Adjust as desired using the left- or right-arrow buttons, keeping in mind
that reducing noise (which reduces high frequencies) may also “soften” the image.
MPEG NR: Use the MPEG Filter to reduce or eliminate so-called “mosquito noise” in
MPEG-compressed video signals (digital broadcasts or DVDs). Adjust as needed to
minimize distortion around the edges of moving objects, moving artifacts around edges
and/or blotchy noise patterns superimposed over the objects.
Backlight: The Backlight control changes the apparent brightness of the displayed
image. Its effect is similar to that of a lamp intensity control on a projector.
Note
The Backlight control is disabled when Auto Backlight (described
on page 40) is set to On.

Color Temperature: To choose a color temperature setting, select Color Temp. from the
Picture Adjust menu and press ENTER. (Color temperature defines the “color of gray.”)
The choices are 5400K, 6500K, 8500K and Custom. The default setting, 6500K, is
appropriate for most situations. Higher settings produce a “bluer” picture; lower ones
impart a reddish hue to the image.
Each color temperature setting has six (6) “white balance” parameters associated with it
(two each for red, green and blue). These are described later in this section; refer to White
Balance on page 43.
Y
Gamma: The Gamma control determines how gray shades are displayed between
minimum input (black) and maximum input (white) for all signals. A good gamma setting
helps to optimize blacks and whites while ensuring smooth transitions for the
“in-between” values utilized in other grays.
EL
IM
IN
A
R
Unlike brightness and contrast controls, Gamma allows you to lighten or darken the
overall tone of your images without changing the extremes. All images will be more vibrant
while still showing good detail in dark areas.
The default Gamma setting of 2.2 is appropriate for most typical home theater
environments.
Save Settings: The Crystal Series LCD lets you save image quality settings for each input
and supported resolution to a preset. You can recall this preset at a later time by simply
pressing a button on the remote control or using the Restore Settings menu command
(see below).
You should save changes to any of the following settings to a preset; otherwise they will
be lost when a new input source or resolution is selected:
• Brightness
• Contrast
• Tint

Overscan (not available with PC signals): Overscan pushes the outside edge of the
active picture area of the video signal out beyond the edge of the display area.
Some television programs are produced based on the assumption that older television
sets may not display the outer edges of the broadcast picture area. Overscan effectively
trims away these inactive, outer edges and enlarges the remaining portion of the image to
fill the display area.
Use the on-screen slidebars to set the desired amount of horizontal and vertical overscan,

create up to three presets – designated “Custom,” “ISF Day” and “ISF Night” – per
input and resolution.
You should save changes to any of the following settings to a preset; otherwise they
will be lost when a new input source or resolution is selected:
• Brightness
• Contrast
• Color saturation

Regular cleaning will extend the life and performance of the Crystal Series LCD. Before
cleaning, be sure to unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
Cleaning the Display

Control
Y
Do not under any circumstances use solvents such as benzene or thinner to clean the
Crystal Series LCD. Doing so may cause deterioration or peeling of paint from the display
or remote control unit.
5.1
Cleaning
EL
IM
IN
A
R
Wipe the display and remote control gently with a soft cloth. In case of excessive dirt
buildup, dampen a soft cloth with a diluted neutral cleaning detergent. Wring the cloth
thoroughly, then wipe the component and dry it with a dry soft cloth.
After dusting, wipe the screen gently using a soft cloth (cotton, flannel etc.). Do not use
tissue or coarse fabric. The screen surface is easily scratched; do not rub it or hit it with a
hard object.
Cleaning the Screen
If you clean the surface of the screen with a wet cloth, do not allow water droplets on the
surface to enter into the product; this may cause a malfunction.
As a general rule, use a vacuum cleaner about once a month to clean the vents on the
rear panel of the display of dust buildup (set the vacuum cleaner to its weakest setting
when doing this). If not removed, accumulated dust can cause the internal temperature to
increase, resulting in possible breakdown or fire.

6. Serial Communications
To interface the Crystal Series LCD with a home theater automation/control system or a
PC running terminal emulation software (such as HyperTerminal, provided with Microsoft®
Windows™), connect it to your control system or PC as shown in Figure 3-9. Use a
straight-through cable.

RS-232 Connection
and Port Configuration
EL
IM
IN
A
R
Y
Configure the RS-232 controller or PC serial port as follows: no parity, 8 data bits, 1 stop
bit and no flow control. Set the baud rate to match that of the Crystal Series LCD RS-232
port. To check the baud rate setting, select Baud Rate from the Setup menu (refer to
page 41).
• Commands are in ASCII format and are not case-sensitive.
• A carriage return is not required after a command.
• To send a command from a PC running terminal emulation software, create a text file
containing that command. Then, use the file transfer function in your terminal emulation
program to send the command. (If you are using HyperTerminal, choose “Send Text
File...” from the Transfer menu.)
• When you send a valid command, the Crystal Series LCD executes it and
acknowledges it with a right-bracket character (]) followed by the four-digit numeric
code you sent; for example, ]0002.
• When you send an invalid command (one followed by values outside the valid range for
that command), the Crystal Series LCD ignores it and returns >MAX or <MIN instead of
the four-digit code.
PR
• When you send an unrecognized/misspelled command, the Crystal Series LCD ignores
it and returns -N/A instead of the four-digit code.

The following serial commands are meant to emulate buttons on the remote control. Each button
has its own serial command, so effectively it is as if you were using the IR remote only you’ll be
doing so via serial commands. These commands provide active OSD responses just like the IR
remote.
Each command begins with [key followed by the four-digit number of the button. No carriage
return is necessary. The response you receive from the unit if the command is valid will be a
right-bracket (]) followed by the four-digit numeric code you sent. (For example, the ‘ON’ command is [key0015; the response will be ]0015). All commands are in ASCII.
