Handling the LCD Screen
• 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 monitor's screen. Do not
place a heavy object on the LCD monitor's screen. This
may cause the screen to lose uniformity.
• If the unit is used in a cold place, horizontal lines or a
residual image may appear on the screen. This is not a
malfunction. When the monitor becomes warm, the
screen returns to normal.
• If a fixed picture such as a frame of a divided picture or
time code, or a still picture is displayed for a long time,
an image may remain on the screen and be superimposed
as a ghosting image.
• The screen and the cabinet become warm during
operation. This is not a malfunction.
Be sure to disconnect the AC power cord from the AC
