HOW TO SETUP YOUR NEW HITACHI PLASMA MONITOR
VIEWING
The major benefit of the HITACHI Plasma Monitor is its large viewing screen. To see this large screen at its best, test various locations in
the room to find the optimum spot for viewing. The best picture is seen by sitting directly in front of the monitor and about 8 to 18 feet
from the screen.
During daylight hours, reflections from outside light may appear on the screen. If so, drapes or screens can be used to reduce the
reflection or the monitor can be located in a different section of the room.
If the monitor’s audio output will be connected to a Hi-Fi system’s external speakers, the best audio performance will be obtained by
placing the speakers equidistant from each side of the receiver cabinet and as close as possible to the height of the picture screen
center. For best stereo separation, place the external speakers at least four feet from the side of the monitor, place the surround
speakers to the side or behind the viewing area. Differences in room sizes and acoustical environments will require some
experimentation with speaker placement for best performance.

Transportation
The plasma display panel is made from glass. Heavy shock on the front panel might damage it.
When the plasma monitor is transported horizontally, the glass panel has the possibility of being broken or
increasing the picture defects. At the time of transportation, horizontal style is prohibited. More-over, please treat
the plasma panel with great care because of a precision apparatus. Please instruct transporters so that it should
be put into the packing box at the time of shipment. (There is a possibility that breakage of the panel or defects will
increase.) Rough transportation might cause damage to the panel and pixel failure.
8
Image retention
The plasma monitor illuminates phosphor to display images. The phosphor has a finite illumination life. After
extended periods of illumination, the brightness of the phosphor will be degraded to such extent that stationary
images would burn-in that part of the screen as grayed-out images.
Tips to prevent such image retention are:
- Do not display images having sharp brightness differences or hi-contrast images, such as monochrome
characters and graphic patterns, for long.
- Do not leave stationary images appearing for long, but try to refresh them at appropriate intervals of time, or try to
move them using screen saver function.
- Turn down the contrast and brightness controls.

assures that pristine high-definition images retain the highest video quality from the source all the way to your monitor screen.
Use the HDMI input for your external devices such as Set-Top-Boxes or DVD players equipped with an HDMI output connection.
HDMI, the HDMI logo and High-Definition Multimedia Interface are trademarks or registered trademarks of HDMI Licensing LLC.
NOTES: 1. The HDMI input is not intended for use with personal computers.
2. Only DTV formats such as 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p are available for HDMI input.
⑮ ANALOG RGB Input
Use this 15-pin D-Sub input for your external devices with RGB output using the D-Sub Mini 15-pin cable provided.

RECEPTION PROBLEMS
• The display image appears
scrolling diagonal.
• Text displayed across the screen
appears vertically streaked, with
the characters in vertical columns
blurred.
• RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE:
The interference produces moving ripples or diagonal streaks, and in some cases,
causes loss of contrast in the picture.
• PREVENTION OF AN OBSTACLE TO RADIO RECEIVERS
This monitor has been designed pursuant to the FCC class B Rules. This is to
prevent a problem to Radio receivers. If this monitor causes a problem to Radio
receivers, then take the following steps:
- Keep the monitor away from Radio.
- Adjust Radio antennas in order for the monitor not to receive interference.
- The antenna cable of Radio should be kept away from the monitor.
- Use a coaxial cable for antenna.
You can check if this monitor influences Radio receivers by turning off all other
equipment other than the monitor.
If you find a problem receiving Radio when using the monitor, check the instructions
mentioned above.
• Adjust the horizontal clock and clock phase.
(Adjust the horizontal clock first, the clock phase next.)
(RGB input)
• Text displayed across the
screen appears blurred.
• A fine pattern flickers when
displayed on the screen.
• Adjust the clock phase for the clearest viewing.
(RGB input)
• Vertical stripes appear, depending on the
screen contents.
• The plasma display panel is lighting the phosphors by the discharge of internal
radiation. Depending on the screen contents, in rare cases this may cause vertical
stripes to appear because of failure to light. Please note that this is not a
malfunction.
• Adjusting the clock phase will reduce the horizontal stripes.
(RGB input)
• Coarse horizontal stripes appear in FULL
display.
• The display dims to make the picture invisible
during special playback of a VCR (FF, REW).
• This condition may occur when the unit is connected to a VCR with component
output, such as 480i, but it is not a failure. But when it occurs, switch to composite
output.
31
Français
• GHOSTS:
Ghosts are caused by the monitor signal following two paths. One is the direct path
and the other is reflected from tall buildings, hills or some other objects. Changing
the direction or position of the antenna may improve reception. Ghosting may also
be caused by defects in the antenna system such as unshielded leads or connecting
several sets to the same antenna without using multiple antenna couplers.
• SNOW:
If your receiver is located in the fringe area of a television station where the signal is
weak, your picture may be marred by the appearance of small dots. When the signal
is extremely weak, it may be necessary to install a special antenna to improve the
picture.
English
• IGNITION NOISE:
Black spots or horizontal streaks may appear, picture may flutter or drift. Usually
caused by interference from automobile ignition systems, neon lamps, electrical
drills, and other electrical appliances.
