1.3.1 Power-on Initialization
Upon power up the system initialization is performed as follows:
(1) Install fonts from the font chip, reports NO FONTS CHIP on failure.
(2) At initial startup, clear the memory, load default settings and set the real time
clock to 1 Jan 2000, 00:00:00.
(3) Close unsaved files when abnormal shutdown. Abnormal shutdown will
occur when power fails or system halts during remote control programming
or serial communication access.
(4) Check the system data integrity. Despite the memory being backed up by a
battery, it may become corrupted in some unusual circumstances. If the auto
recover mode is off, the system will report VERIFY ERROR, and prompt for
clearing of the affected data. If the auto recover mode is on, the memory will
be recovered from the flash automatically without any prompt.
(5) Initialize the modem to automatic answer mode if modem detected.
1.3.2 Sign ON/OFF Switching
Switch the sign between ON and OFF States by pressing
key. Power up
the sign, it will perform the initialization and restore the conditions saved before the
last power down. If the sign was in OFF State before last power down, the sign will
still keep in OFF State and screen will be cleared; only one dot in the top-right corner
will flash slowly. If the sign was in ON State before last power down, the sign will
still keep in ON State and it will begin running preprogrammed files.

INSTALLATION
3. Installation
3.1 Overview
Because every installation site is unique, there is no standard method of mounting.
As manufacture of LED display, we don’t supply support structure, we can only
provide recommending for the support structure design. It is customer’s responsibility
to ensure that the structure and mounting hardware are able of supporting the Screen,
and according with local laws.
Support structure design depends on the mounting methods, screen size and its
weight. The structure design is critical and should be done only by a qualified
individual and organization.
The following must be considered first before installation:
Design support structure and groundwork; calculate carefully the needed
strength according to local codes; especially note the wind load and the issue
of Seismic Zone.
For the reason of heat dissipation, the waterproof of the back of LED module
is IP45; consider if any added shield needed for more protection. If LED
Screen is enclosed in an enclosure or casing, air-conditions are needed for
cooling when the environment temperature reach 30 oC.
Keep enough space for maintains.
Prepare for routing power lines and fiber connection. If it is used in outdoor,
it is best to route 4 fiber cables. Two are used for data transmitting and the
other two are saved for spares. It is doubtless to route power lines and fiber
cables in two separate conduits.
Grounding consideration, we recommend grounding resistance must be less
than 10 ohms.
The relations of the screen body size with the distance of installing. The
screen body size and the viewing distance should have the suitable
proportion relations. The ordinary circumstances viewing distance may take
the screen body opposite angle line length 2~20 double, and the effect is
better when the viewing distance is in 6~10 doubles.
The angle of installing: When the screen body installs, should pay attention
to the direction of LED element's light. When the screen body installs at
highly, should make the screen body to maintain the certain inclination angle,
that in order to causes the direction of shines direct to best viewing position.

When the screen body installed, we should pay attention to the influence of
outside electromagnetic radiation to the displays.
3.2 Common mounting method
The shape and size of Multi-Line LED electronic message center are different; the
use of them is diverse and the method of mounting is most changeful. There isn’t a
unification standard of the mounting. Following we introduced several commonly
used method of mounting.
1) Hang type
Hang type include two types. One is hanging up at the ceiling or other truss
(fig2.1a shows). The LED moving sign is hanging up at ceiling or truss by the bracket.
Another is hanging on wall (fig2.1b shows). The LED moving sign is mounting on
wall by the bracket.
2) Swing type
Swing type is an especial of hang type. This method is hanging moving sign at
wall by a bracket too. But the bracket have a suspend arm for Swing. Fig2.4 shows.
3) Desktop installation
This method must design a pedestal to support the LED moving sign. And the
LED moving sign is installed on the pedestal. Fig2.2 shows it.
4) Movable structure
This method is base on desktop installation. It is different form desktop
installation there are some wheels on the pedestal. So it can move easily. Fig2.3
shows it.
5) Insert type
Insert type is a method that the moving sign is inserted in wall or other object.
Fig2.5 shows it. This method is always using for looking more beautiful.

Above mentioned method is several commonly used method of mounting. The
hang type is the most simply. And its realization is easily. The swing type is based on
the hang type, and more complex than hang type. This method can open or close
according as your circs. If the place of installation is far form wall or ceiling and the
moving sign is big, you can use the desktop installation. If moving sign needs move
frequently should use movable structure. In somewhere such as hospital, company,
public etc using Moving-Sign for sign. There usually adopt the insert type for
beautiful.
Certainly, there are many other methods of mounting. We impossibility introduce
all methods. User can choose an appropriate method of mounting according as your
idiographic circs.
Remark: All these methods are must think the weight of moving sign at first.
User must make sure the backstop can support the weight of the display while
mounting it.

6. Maintenance & Troubleshooting
Important Notes:
Power must be turned off before any repair or maintenance work is done on
the Display.
Qualified service personnel must make any access to internal Display
electronics.
Study foregoing sections to understand configuration of the Display and the
routing flow of power and signal.
6.1 Maintenance
A yearly inspection should be completed to maintain safe and dependable Display
operation. This inspection should address the following issues:
Loose hardware Verify fasteners, such as bolts and rivets, have not come
loose. Fasteners should be checked and tightened or replaced as required.
Excessive Dust Buildup Occasionally it may be necessary to vacuum the
inside of the Display cabinet to remove dust/dirt buildup that may interface
with airflow.
Water Intrusion Water can enter the Display where weather seal has come
loose or deteriorated or where fasteners has come loose allowing gaps in the
panels or where moisture may be entering around hardware. Be sure to check
around the lift eyes and bolts to ensure that water has not entered there. If so,
replace hardware immediately to prevent more water from entering the
Display. Also, check electronic components for possible corrosion.
Corrosion Check the paint, and look for possible corrosion especially at
footings, structure tie points and ground rods.
Fans Failure Every fan installed on the backdoor of cabinet is controlled by
a thermal switch and is turned on when the surface temperature of the cabinet
reaches about 45oC. Fans should be checked more often if the moving sign is
located in a dusty environment. Fan blades and filters must be kept clean.

MAINTENANCE & TROUBLESHOOTING
6.2 Cleaning moving sign
Due to use the moving sign are exposed to all kinds of weather conditions. Sand,
dust, smog and other dirt adhere on the moving sign and because of that the
performance of the moving sign is reduced. So we recommend cleaning moving sign
at regular intervals.
Necessary tools
• Damp cloth with a non aggressive detergent.
• Soft hand brush with long hair.
• Compressed air.
Cleaning process
1. Seal up the data and power sockets of the cabinet with a power and data cable.
Make sure that all plug holder clamps are locked firmly.
2. Ensure that the unused output ports of cabinet are sealed with a dummy plug.
3. Use damp cloth with a non aggressive detergent to cleaning moving sign.
Warning: Don’t use industrial grease removers. Use only materials or
chemicals that are inert, nonabrasive, noncorrosive and non-marking.
4. Brush down all dirt of the LED’s and the shaders using a soft hand brush.
Warning: Don’t use a hard bristled brush.
5. Repeat from step 3 until the cabinet is clean.
6. Blow the surface dry with compressed air.
