User Instructions
◆ Screen Image retention
Do not display a still image (such as on a video game or when hooking up a PC to this PDP) on the
plasma monitor panel for more than 2 hours as it can cause screen image retention. This image
retention is also known as “screen burn”. To avoid such image retention, reduce the degree of
brightness and contrast of this screen when displaying a still image.
◆ Cell Defect
The plasma display panel consists of fine cells. Although the panels are produced with more than
99.9 percent active cells, there may be some cells that do not produce light or remain lit.
◆ Height
The PDP can normally operate only under 2000m in height. It might abnormally function at a place
over 2000m in height and do not install and operate there.
◆ Warranty
- Warranty Period: One year starting from the purchase of your PDP.
- Warranty does not cover any damage caused by image retention.
- Burn-in is not covered by the warranty.

Setting up Your Display Plug and Play
ENG
Our adoption of the new VESA® Plug and Play solution eliminates complicated and time consuming
setup. It allows you to install your monitor in a Plug and Play compatible system without the usual
hassles and confusion. Your PC system can easily identify and configure itself for use with your display.
This monitor automatically tells the PC system its Extended Display Identification data (EDID) using
Display Data Channel (DDC) protocols.
Setting up Your PC Software (Windows only)
The Windows display-settings for a typical computer are shown below. But the actual screens on your
PC will probably be different, depending upon your particular version of Windows and your particular
video card.
On the windows screen, select in the following sequence:
Start ➞ Settings ➞ Control Panel.
When the control panel screen appears, click on Display
and a display dialog-box will appear.
Select the Settings tab in the display dialog-box.
The two key variables that apply the PDP-PC interface are
“Resolution” and “Colors”.
The correct settings for these two variables are:
◆ Size (sometimes called “Resolution”)
1024 x 768 pixels.
◆ Color
24-bit color
(might also be expressed as “16 million colors”)
Shown at left is a typical screen for Display dialog box.
If a vertical-frequency option exists on your display settings
dialog box, the correct value is 60 or 60 Hz. Otherwise, just
click OK and exit the dialog box.

◆ The interlace mode is not supported.
◆ The PDP might operate abnormally if a non-standard video format is selected.
◆ The 4:3 mode does not work with input signals from “720 x 400”.
Notes
◆ The text quality of PC screen is optimum in the VGA mode (640 x 480), the full size displayed PC mode
is optimum in the SVGA mode (800 x 600).
◆ When this PDP is used as a PC display, 24-bit color is supported (over 16 million colors).
◆ Your PC display screen might appear different depending on the manufacturer (and your particular version of
Windows). Check your PC instruction book for information about connecting your PC to a PDP.
◆ If a vertical and horizontal frequency-select mode exists, select 60Hz (vertical) and 31.5kHz (horizontal).
In some cases, abnormal signals (such as stripes) might appear on the screen when the PC power is turned
off (or if the PC is disconnected). If so, press the Source button to enter the Video mode. Also, make sure that
the PC is connected.
◆ When connecting a notebook PC to the PDP, make sure that the PC screen is displayed through only the
PDP monitor (Otherwise, random signals might appear).
◆ When horizontal synchronous signals seem irregular in PC mode, check PC power saving mode or cable
connections.

Multiple Display Control (MDC)
ENG
A multiple display control is an application allowing
various displays to be easily and simultaneously operated
on a PC. RS-232C, a standard of serial communication, is
used for the communication between a PC and a display.
Therefore, a serial cable should be connected between
the serial port on a PC and the serial port on a display.
➣
◆ Before using the RS-232C control function, confirm whether each ID of the PDPs that you want to
control is set or not, and they are individual each other. If not, first set your ID number. (Refer to
“Setting the Multiple Display Control (MDC)” on page 43.)
◆ When controlling more than four PDPs or using an extra cable, not the serial cable which is
included in PDP, the MDC maybe operate abnormally.

Wiring the Mains Power Supply Plug (UK Only)
ENG
◆ IMPORTANT NOTICE
The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse. The value of the fuse
is indicated on the pin face of the plug and, if it requires replacing, a fuse approved to BSI1362 of the same
rating must be used. Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted if the cover is detachable.
If a replacement fuse cover is required, it must be of the same colour as the pin face of the plug. Replacement
covers are available from your dealer. If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your house or the
cable is not long enough to reach a power point, you should obtain a suitable safety approved extension lead
or consult your dealer for assistance. However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse
and then safely dispose of the plug. Do NOT connect the plug to a mains socket as there is a risk of shock
hazard from the bared flexible cord.
◆ IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
BLUE - NEUTRAL
BROWN - LIVE
As these colours may not correspond to the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug,
proceed as follows:
The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE or
BLACK. The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured
BROWN or RED.
WARNING:
DO NOT CONNECT EITHER WIRE TO THE EARTH TERMINAL, WHICH IS MARKED
WITH THE LETTER E OR BY THE EARTH SYMBOL , OR COLOURED GREEN OR
GREEN AND YELLOW.
