Precautions
Warning on power connections
* Use the supplied power cord. If you use a different power cord,
be sure that it is compatible with your local power supply.
For the customers in the US
If you do not use the appropriate cord, this monitor will not
conform to mandatory FCC Standards.
Example of plug types
CE
py ww
for 100 to 120 V AC
for 200 to 240 V AC
* Before disconnecting the power cord, wait at least 30 seconds
after turning off the power to allow the static electricity on the
screen’s surface to discharge.
* After the power is turned on, the screen is demagnetized
(degaussed) for about 3 seconds. This generates a strong
magnetic field around the screen, which may affect data stored
on magnetic tapes and disks placed near the monitor. Be sure to
keep magnetic recording equipment, tapes and disks away from
the monitor.
The equipment should be installed near an easily accessible
outlet.
Installation
Do not install the monitor in the following places:
* on surfaces (rugs, blankets, etc.) or near materials (curtains,
draperies) that may block the ventilation holes
* near heat sources such as radiators or air ducts, or in a place
subject to direct sunlight
* in a place subject to severe temperature changes
* in a place subject to mechanical vibration or shock
* on an unstable surface
* near equipment which generates magnetism, such as a
transformer or high voltage power lines
* near or on an electrically charged metal surface
Maintenance
* Clean the screen with a soft cloth. If you use a glass cleaning
liquid, do not use any type of cleaner containing an anti-static
solution or similar additive as this may scratch the screen's
coating.
* Do not rub, touch, or tap the surface of the screen with sharp or
abrasive items such as a ball point pen or screwdriver. This type
of contact may result in a scratched picture tube.
* Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth lightly
moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type
of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent, such as alcohol or
benzene.
Transportation
When you transport this monitor for repair or shipment, use the
original carton and packing materials.

Technical Features
Preset and user modes
When the monitor receives an input signal, it automatically
matches the signal to one of the 26 factory preset modes stored in
the monitor's memory to provide a high quality picture at the
center of the screen. (See the Appendix for a list of the factory
preset modes.) For input signals that do not match one of the
factory preset modes, the digital Multiscan technology of this
monitor ensures that a clear picture appears on the screen for any
timing in the monitor's frequency range (horizontal: 30-96 kHz,
vertical: 48-120 Hz). If the picture is adjusted, the adjustment
data is stored as a user mode and automatically recalled whenever
the same input signal is received.
Note for Windows users
For Windows users, check your graphic video board manual or
the utility program which comes with your graphic video board
and select the highest available refresh rate to maximize monitor
performance.

(damper wires)
The lines you may be seeing on your screen are normal for the
Trinitron monitor and are not a malfunction. These are shadows
from the damper wires that stabilize the aperture grille, and are
most noticeable when the screen's background is light (usually
white).
The aperture grille is the essential element that makes a Trinitron
picture tube unique by allowing more light to reach the screen,
resulting in a brighter, more detailed picture.

TCO'95 Eco-document
Ш Congratulations!
You have just purchased a TCO’95 approved and labelled
product! Your choice has provided you with a product developed
for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to
reducing the burden on the environment and also, to the further
development of environmentally adapted electronics products.
ME Why do we have environmentally labelled
computers?
In many countries, environmental labelling has become an
established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and
services to the environment. The main problem, as far as
computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that
environmentally harmful substances are used both in the products
and during the manufacturing. Since it has not been possible for
the majority of electronics equipment to be recycled in a
satisfactory way, most of these potentially damaging substances
sooner or later enter Nature. |
There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy
consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints of
both the work (internal) and natural (external) environments.
Since all methods of conventional electricity generation have a
negative effect on the environment (acidic and climate-
influencing emissions, radioactive waste, etc.), it is vital to
conserve energy. Electronics equipment in offices consume an
enormous amount of energy since they are often left running
continuously.
+
Ш What does labelling involve?
This product meets the requirements for the TCO’95 scheme
which provides for international and environmental labelling of
personal computers. The labelling scheme was developed as a
joint effort by the TCO (The Swedish Confederation of
Professional Employees), Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish
Society for Nature Conservation) and NUTEK (The National
Board for Industrial and Technical Development in Sweden).
The requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment,
ergonomics, usability, emission of electrical and magnetic fields,
energy consumption and electrical and fire safety.

Sony Corporation Printed in U.S.A.
The environmental demands concern restrictions on the presence
and use of heavy metals, brominated and chlorinated flame
retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among other
things. The product must be prepared for recycling and the
manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental plan which
must be adhered to in each country where the company
implements its operational policy.
The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/
or display, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce its
power consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The
length of time to reactivate the computer shall be reasonable for
the user.
Labelled products must meet strict environmental demands, for
example, in respect of the reduction of electric and magnetic
fields, physical and visual ergonomics and good usability.
On this page, you will find a brief summary of the environmental
requirements met by this product. The complete environmental
criteria document may be ordered from:

E Environmental Requirements
Brominated flame retardants
Brominated flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards,
cables, wires, casings and housings. In turn, they delay the spread
of fire. Up to thirty percent of the plastic in a computer casing can
consist of flame retardant substances. These are related to another
group of environmental toxins, PCBs, which are suspected to give
rise to similar harm, including reproductive damage in fisheating
birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative* processes.
Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers
fear that disturbances in foetus development may occur.
TCO'95 demand requires that plastic components weighing more
than 25 grams must not contain organically bound chlorine and
bromine.
Lead**
Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and
capacitors. Lead damages the nervous system and in higher doses,
causes lead poisoning.
ТСО’95 requirement permits the inclusion of lead since no
replacement has yet been developed.
Cadmium**
Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the
colourgenerating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium
damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses.
TCO’95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more
than 25 ppm (parts per million) of cadmium. The colour-
generating layers of display screens must not contain any
cadmium.
Mercury**
Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches.
Mercury damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses.
TCO’95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more
than 25 ppm (parts per million) of mercury. It also demands that
no mercury is present in any of the electrical or electronics
components concerned with the display unit.
CFCs (freons)
CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit
boards and in the manufacturing of expanded foam for packaging.
CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in
the stratosphere, causing increased reception on Earth of
ultraviolet light with consequent increased risks of skin cancer
(malignant melanoma).
The relevant TCO’95 requirement: Neither CFCs nor HCFCs
may be used during the manufacturing of the product or its
packaging.
* Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate
within living organisms
** Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are Bio-
accumulative. -
