The Personal LCD Display is a brand-new
concept in visual display
Congratulations on your purchase of the Sony
Personal LCD Display. The Personal LCD
Display using current technology in small,
lightweight visual displays, provides a television
viewing experience similar to watching a 30inch television from a distance of approximately
4 feet in SVGA mode. (Viewing experience may
differ according to individual perception.)
Note on the LCD (Liquid Crystal
Display)
The LCD screen is made with high-precision
technology. However, black points or bright
points of light (red, blue, or green) may
appear constantly on the LCD screen. This
is not a malfunction. (Effective dots: more
than 99.999%)
The Personal LCD Display creates an image
through two separate liquid crystal displays, in
close proximity to your eyes. To insure your
safe use of the Personal LCD Display, please
become familiar with its basic operations,
including proper fitting instructions, and be
aware of any symptoms of eye fatigue or other
discomfort you may experience.

• This unit does not support XGA mode (1,024 × 768) and above. If you set the vertical frequency to 60 Hz in
XGA mode, the picture is displayed but the picture quality is poor due to the signal loss. Change the screen
resolution on your PC to SVGA or VGA.
• Though the Personal LCD Display supports the signals listed above, set the vertical frequency to 60 Hz when
using with SVGA (800 × 600), or to 72 Hz or 75 Hz with VGA (640 × 480) mode. Also adjust the vertical
frequency of the external display output signal of the connected computer.
• When you display VGA pictures (640 × 480) or NTSC video pictures (video mode), the pictures are not
displayed across the entire screen. About 60% of the screen area is utilized. For PAL video pictures (video
mode), about 84% of the screen area is utilized.
• Some notebook type PCs do not output the RGB signal in the adjusted screen resolution and the vertical
frequency from the external monitor port until you set the PC to external display mode.

Precautions
Use
Installation
• Operate the product only with the supplied
AC power adapter. If you use a different
AC power adapter, it may cause a
malfunction.
• To prevent internal heat build-up, do not
block the ventilation openings.
• Avoid operating the product at temperatures
below 41˚F (5˚C).
• Do not subject the product to high
temperature or direct sunlight. If you do not
observe the above instructions, the product
may become deformed and the screens may
become impossible to align. If you keep
watching misaligned screens, you may
develop eye fatigue. If you find the screens
misaligned, have the product repaired at an
authorized service center.
• Do not place the product in locations where it
is wet, humid, dusty, smoky, or steamy. Do
not use this product near or around water. It
may cause fire or electric shock. Especially,
do not use the product in the bathroom.
• If the product is transported directly from a
cold to a warm location, or if the room
temperature has changed suddenly, the picture
may be blurred or show poor color. This is
because moisture has condensed on the mirror
or lenses inside. If this happens, let the
moisture evaporate before using the product.
• Do not place the product on an unstable cart,
stand, table, or shelf. The product may fall,
causing serious injury to a child or an adult,
and serious damage to the product.
• Do not allow anything to rest on or roll over
the power cord, and do not place the product
where the power cord is subject to wear or
abuse.
Unified polarity plug
• Should any liquid or solid object fall into the
cabinet, unplug the product and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it further.
• Always turn the product off when you do not
use it.
Unplug the product from the wall outlet if you
are not going to use it for several days or more.
To disconnect the cord, pull it out by the plug.
Never pull the cord itself.
• Do not overload wall outlet, extension cords,
or convenience receptacles beyond their
capacity, since this can result in fire or electric
shock.
• Do not use attachments not recommended by
the manufacturer, as they may cause hazards.
• Avoid using earphones at high volume.
Hearing experts advise against continuous,
loud, and extended play. If you experience a
ringing in your ears, reduce volume or
discontinue use.
• Do not touch the AC power adapter or power
supply box with wet hands. If you fail to
observe this, it may cause electric shock.
• Do not drop or give a mechanical shock to the
product.

- If the product has been exposed to rain or
water.
- If the product has been subject to excessive
shock by being dropped, or the cabinet has
been damaged.
- If the product does not operate normally
when following the operating instructions.
Adjust only those controls that are
specified in the operating instructions.
Improper adjustment of other controls may
result in damage and will often require
extensive work by a qualified technician to
restore the product to normal operation.
- When the product exhibits a distinct
change in performance –– this indicates a
need for service.
• Do not disassemble or remodel the product. It
may cause fire or electric shock. Have the
product checked and repaired at an authorized
service center.
• Do not attempt to service the product yourself
since opening the cabinet may expose you to
dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all
servicing to qualified service personnel.
• When replacement parts are required, be sure
the service technician certifies in writing that
he has used replacement parts specified by the
manufacturer that have the same
characteristics as the original parts.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire,
electric shock, or other hazards.
• Upon completion of any service or repairs to
the product, ask the service technician to
perform routine safety checks (as specified by
the manufacturer) to determine that the
product is in safe operating condition, and to
so certify.
• Unplug the product from the wall outlet
