Precaution 9
Precaution
On Safety
• Operate the unit only with a power source as specified
in the “Specifications” section.
• A nameplate indicating operating voltage, etc., is
located on the rear panel.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet,
unplug the unit and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
• Do not drop or place heavy objects on the power cord.
If the power cord is damaged, turn off the power
immediately. It is dangerous to use the unit with a
damaged power cord.
• Unplug the unit from the wall outlet if it is not to be
used for several days or more.
• Disconnect the power cord from the AC outlet by
grasping the plug, not by pulling the cord.
• The socket-outlet shall be installed near the equipment
and shall be easily accessible.
On Installation
• Prevent internal heat build-up allowing adequate air
circulation.
Do not place the unit on surfaces (rugs, blankets, etc.)
or near materials (curtains, draperies) that may block
the ventilation holes.
• Do not install the unit near heat sources such as
radiators or air ducts, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, mechanical vibration or
shock.
• Do not place the monitor near equipment which
generates magnetism, such as a transformer or high
voltage power lines.
About the LCD Panel
• The LCD panel fitted to this unit is manufactured with
high precision technology, giving a functioning pixel
ratio of at least 99.99%. Thus a very small proportion
of pixels may be “stuck”, either always off (black),
always on (red, green, or blue), or flashing. In
addition, over a long period of use, because of the
physical characteristics of the liquid crystal display,
such “stuck” pixels may appear spontaneously. These
problems are not a malfunction.
• Do not leave the LCD screen facing the sun as it can
damage the LCD screen. Take care when you place the
unit by a window.
• Do not push or scratch the LCD screen. Do not place
a heavy object on the LCD screen. This may cause the
screen to lose uniformity.
• If the unit is used in a cold place, a residual image may
appear on the screen. This is not a malfunction. When
the monitor becomes warm, the screen returns to
normal.
• The screen and the cabinet become warm during
operation. This is not a malfunction.
On Burn-in
For LCD panel, permanent burn-in may occur if still
images are displayed in the same position on the screen
continuously, or repeatedly over extended periods.
Images that may cause burn-in
• Masked images with aspect ratios other than 15:9
• Color bars or images that remain static for a long time
• Character or message displays that indicate settings or
the operating state
To reduce the risk of burn-in
• Turn off the character displays
Press the MENU button to turn off the character
displays. To turn off the character displays of the
connected equipment, operate the connected
equipment accordingly. For details, refer to the
operation manual of the connected equipment.
• Turn off the power when not in use
Turn off the power if the viewfinder is not to be used
for a prolonged period of time.
On a Long Period of Use
Due to the characteristics of LCD panel, displaying
static images for extended periods, or using the unit
repeatedly in a high temperature/high humidity
environments may cause image smearing, burn-in, areas
of which brightness is permanently changed, lines, or a
decrease in overall brightness.
In particular, continued display of an image smaller than
the monitor screen, such as in a different aspect ratio,
may shorten the life of the unit.
Avoid displaying a still image for an extended period, or
using the unit repeatedly in a high temperature/high
humidity environment such an airtight room, or around
the outlet of an air conditioner.
To prevent any of the above issues, we recommend
reducing brightness slightly, and to turn off the power
whenever the unit is not in use.

detergent, or chemical cleaning cloth are used for the
monitor surface, the performance of the monitor may be
impaired or the finish of the surface may be damaged.
Take care with respect to the following:
• Clean the monitor surface with a 50 to 70 v/v%
concentration of isopropyl alcohol or a 76.9 to 81.4 v/
v% concentration of ethanol using a swab method.
Wipe the monitor surface gently (wipe using less than
1 N force).
• Stubborn stains may be removed with a soft cloth such
as a cleaning cloth lightly dampened with mild
detergent solution using a swab method and then clean
using the above chemical solution.
Never use solvents such as benzene or thinner, or acid,
alkaline or abrasive detergent, or chemical cleaning
cloth for cleaning or disinfection, as they will damage
the monitor surface.
• Do not use unnecessary force to rub the monitor
surface with a stained cloth. The monitor surface may
be scratched.
• Do not keep the monitor surface in contact with a
rubber or vinyl resin product for a long period of time.
The finish of the surface may deteriorate or the coating
may come off.

• Do not dispose of the unit with general waste.
Do not include the monitor with household waste.
• The fluorescent tube includes mercury. Dispose of the
monitor in accordance with the regulations of your
local sanitation authority.
Recommendation to Use more than
One Unit
As problems can occasionally occur for the monitor,
when the monitor is used for safety control of personnel,
assets or stable picture, or for emergencies, we strongly
recommend you use more than one unit or prepare a
spare unit.
On Repacking
Do not throw away the carton and packing materials.
They make an ideal container which to transport the
