Note on the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)
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 U.S.A.
If you do not use the appropriate cord, this monitor will not
conform to mandatory FCC standards.
For the customers in the UK
If you use the monitor in the UK, be sure to use the appropriate
UK power cord.
Example of plug types
for 100 to 120 V AC
for 200 to 240 V AC
for 240 V AC only
The equipment should be installed near an easily accessible outlet.
Installation
Do not install or leave the monitor:
• In places subject to extreme temperatures, for example near a
radiator, heating vent, or in direct sunlight. Subjecting the
monitor to extreme temperatures, such as in an automobile
parked in direct sunlight or near a heating vent, could cause
deformations of the casing or malfunctions.
• In places subject to mechanical vibration or shock.
• Near any equipment that generates a strong magnetic field,
such as a TV or various other household appliances.
• In places subject to inordinate amounts of dust, dirt, or sand, for
example near an open window or an outdoor exit. If setting up
temporarily in an outdoor environment, be sure to take
adequate precautions against airborne dust and dirt. Otherwise
irreparable malfunctions could occur.
Handling the LCD screen
• Do not leave the LCD screen facing the sun as it can damage
the LCD screen. Take care when you place the monitor by a
window.
• Do not push on or scratch the LCD screen. Do not place a heavy
object on the LCD screen. This may cause the screen to lose
uniformity or cause LCD panel malfunctions.
• If the monitor is used in a cold place, a residual image may
appear on the screen. This is not a malfunction. The screen
returns to normal as the temperature rises to a normal operating
level.
• If a still picture is displayed for a long time, a residual image
may appear for a while. The residual image will eventually
disappear.
• The LCD panel becomes warm during operation. This is not a
malfunction.
About the built-in stereo speakers
Be sure to keep magnetic recording equipment, tapes, and floppy
discs away from the speaker’s opening as the speakers generate a
magnetic field. This magnetic field may affect data stored on
magnetic tapes and discs.
4
Please note that 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, and
irregular colored stripes or brightness may appear on the LCD
screen. This is not malfunction.
(Effective dots: more than 99.99%)
Maintenance
• Be sure to unplug the power cord from the power outlet before
cleaning your monitor.
• Clean the LCD 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
LCD screen’s coating.
• 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
benzine.
• Do not rub, touch, or tap the surface of the screen with sharp or
abrasive items such as a ballpoint pen or screwdriver. This type
of contact may result in a scratched picture tube.
• Note that material deterioration or LCD screen coating
degradation may occur if the monitor is exposed to volatile
solvents such as insecticide, or if prolonged contact is
maintained with rubber or vinyl materials.
Transportation
• Disconnect all cables from the monitor, and grasp both side of
the LCD display firmly taking care not to scratch the screen
when transporting. If you drop the monitor, you may be injured
or the monitor may be damaged.
• When you transport this monitor for repair or shipment, use the
original carton and packing materials.
Disposal of the monitor
• Do not dispose of this monitor with general
household waste.
• The fluorescent tube used in this monitor contains
mercury. Disposal of this monitor must be carried out
in accordance to the regulations of your local
sanitation authority.

Automatic picture quality
adjustment function (analog RGB
When the monitor receives an input signal that does not match one
of the factory preset modes, the automatic picture quality
adjustment function of this monitor is activated to ensure that a
clear picture always appears on the screen (within the following
monitor frequency ranges):
Horizontal frequency: 28–80 kHz
Vertical frequency: 48–75 Hz
Consequently, the first time the monitor receives input signals
that do not match one of the factory preset modes, the monitor
may take a longer time than normal to display the picture on the
screen. This adjustment data is automatically stored in memory so
that next time, the monitor will function in the same way as when
the monitor receives the signals that match one of the factory
preset modes.
If you adjust the phase, pitch, and picture position
manually
For some input signals, the automatic picture quality adjustment
function of this monitor may not completely adjust the picture
position, phase, and pitch. In this case, you can set these
adjustments manually (page 16). If you set these adjustments
manually, they are stored in memory as user modes and
automatically recalled whenever the monitor receives the same
input signals.

their sockets (page 7).
• Check that the video input connector’s pins are not bent or pushed in.
• Check that the input select setting is correct (page 11).
• A non-supplied video signal cable is connected. If you connect a non-supplied video
signal cable, “CABLE DISCONNECTED” may appear on the screen. This is not a

computer’s graphics board within the following ranges:
Horizontal frequency: 28–80 kHz (Analog RGB), 28–64 kHz (Digital RGB)
Vertical frequency: 48–75 Hz (Analog RGB), 60 Hz (Digital RGB)

• If you replaced an old monitor with this monitor, reconnect the old monitor and do the
following. Select “SONY” from the “Manufacturers” list and select “SDM-HX73 or
SDM-HX93” from the “Models” list in the Windows device selection screen. If “SDMHX73 or SDM-HX93” does not appear in the “Models” list, try “Plug & Play.”
If using a Macintosh system,
• When connecting a Macintosh computer, use an adapter (not supplied) if necessary.
Connect the adapter to the computer before connecting the video signal cable.

• Adjust the pitch and phase (analog RGB signal only) (page 16).
• Isolate and eliminate any potential sources of electric or magnetic fields such as other
monitors, laser printers, electric fans, fluorescent lighting, or televisions.
• Move the monitor away from power lines or place a magnetic shield near the monitor.
• Try plugging the monitor into a different AC outlet, preferably on a different circuit.
• Change the orientation of the monitor.
xProblem caused by a connected computer or other equipment, and not
caused by the monitor
• Check your graphics board manual for the proper monitor setting.
• Confirm that the graphics mode (VESA, Macintosh 19'' Color, etc.) and the frequency of
the input signal are supported by this monitor. Even if the frequency is within the proper
range, some graphics boards may have a sync pulse that is too narrow for the monitor to
sync with correctly.
