Do not use monitor in high temperature, humid, dusty, or oily areas. • If monitor or glass is broken, do not come in contact with the liquid crystal and handle with care. • Allow adequate ventilation around the monitor, so that heat can properly dissipate.
Remember to save your original box and packing material to transport or ship the monitor. Type and number of power cords included will depend on the where the LCD monitor is to be shipped. When more than one power cord is included, please use a power cord that matches the AC voltage of the power outlet and has been approved by and complies with the safety standard of your particular country.
Please note the following when mounting on wall or ceiling • When using mounting accessories other than those that are NEC approved, they must comply with the VESA- compatible (FDMlv1) mounting method. • NEC strongly recommends Unit using size M6 screws...
The protective sheet was wrapped around the LCD in the original packaging. Make sure there is nothing on the table that can damage the monitor. When using mounting accessories other than NEC compliant and approved, they must comply with the VESA- compatible mounting method.
* If “OFF” is selected in “POWER INDICATOR” (see page 23), LED will not light when the LCD monitor is in active mode. AMBIENT LIGHT SENSOR Detects the level of ambient light, allowing the monitor to make automatic adjustments to the brightness setting, resulting in a more comfortable viewing experience.

C. Replace the cover. CAUTION: Incorrect usage of batteries can result in leaks or bursting. NEC recommends the following battery use: • Place “AA” size batteries matching the (+) and (-) signs on each battery to the (+) and (-) signs of the battery compartment.
5. Attach the cable cover • Use six of the M4 screws (included) to attach the cable cover. 6. Switch on the power of all the attached external equipment When connected with a computer, switch on the power of the computer first. 7.
Connections NOTE: Do not connect/disconnect cables when turning on the monitor or other external equipment as this may result in a loss of the monitor image. NOTE: Use an audio cable without a built-in resistor. Using an audio cable with a built-in resistor turns down the sound.
Connecting a Personal Computer Connecting your computer to your LCD monitor will enable you to display your computer’s screen image. Some video cards with a pixel clock over 162MHz may not display an image correctly. Your LCD monitor displays proper image by adjusting the factory preset timing signal automatically.
The LCD monitor power indicator will turn green while powered on and will turn red or amber while powered off. NOTE: The Main Power Switch must be in the ON position in order to power up the monitor using the remote control or the Power Button on the front of the LCD.
*3 “RS-232C” is selected in EXTERNAL CONTROL. *4 DDC/CI should be disabled. *5 No DisplayPort connection. Using Power Management The LCD monitor follows the VESA approved DPM Display Power Management function. The power management function is an energy saving function that automatically reduces the power consumption of the display when the keyboard or the mouse has not been used for a fixed period.
IN BRIGHT: This is the brightness level that the monitor will go up to when the ambient light level is highest. IN DARK: This is the level of brightness that the monitor will go down to when the ambient light level is low.
OSD (On-Screen-Display) Controls NOTE: Some functions may not be available depending on the model or optional equipment. Input source Main Menu Icons Main Menu Item Sub Menu PICTURE MODE Select Press UP or DOWN button to select sub-menu. Remote Control Press UP or DOWN button to select.

Adjusts the vertical size of the image. VGA, RGB/HV inputs only INPUT RESOLUTION If there is a problem with signal detection, this function forces the monitor to display the signal at the desired resolution. After selection, execute “AUTO SETUP” if required. VGA, RGB/HV inputs only If no problem is detected, the only available option will be “AUTO”.
Resets the following settings within the SCHEDULE menu back to factory setting: OFF TIMER, SCHEDULE SETTINGS. KEEP PIP MODE Allows the monitor to remain in “PIP” and “TEXT TICKER” mode after powering off. When Power is returned, PIP and TEXT TICKER appear without having to enter the OSD. PIP MODE...
Sets the monitor ID number from 1-100 and group ID from A-J. NOTE: Group ID is made of multiple selections. IR CONTROL Selects the mode of the monitor for use with the infra-red remote control when using the RS-232C daisy chain. NORMAL The monitor will be controlled normally using the remote controller.
NOTE: Consult your network administrator for the IP address when “ENABLE” is selected for [DHCP]. IP ADDRESS Set your IP address of the network connected to the monitor when “DISABLE” is selected for [DHCP]. 192.168.0.10 SUBNET MASK Set your subnet mask number of the network connected to the monitor when “DISABLE” is selected for [DHCP].
When the current video input signal is not present, then the monitor searches for a video signal from the other video input port. If the video signal is present in the other port, then the monitor switches the video source input port to the new found video source automatically.
COLOR SYSTEM The selected Color System depends on the video format of the input signal. VIDEO1, VIDEO2, S-VIDEO inputs only AUTO Automatically chooses Color System setting based on input signal. NTSC SECAM 4.43 NTSC PAL-60 SCAN MODE Some video formats may require different scanning modes in order to best display the image. HDMI, DVD/HD1, DVD/HD2, SCART, VIDEO1, VIDEO2, S-VIDEO, TV* inputs only OVER SCAN Image size is larger than what can be displayed.
To alleviate image persistence, turn off the monitor for as long as the previous image was displayed. For example, if an image was on the monitor for one hour and a residual image remains, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to erase the image.
2. Set Monitor ID and IR Control mode. For proper operation, the Monitor ID should be set in the OSD menu of each monitor that is in the chain. The Monitor ID can be set under the “MULTI DISPLAY” menu in the OSD. The Monitor ID number can be set within a range from 1 to 100. No two monitors should share the same Monitor ID number.
Target ID: Displays the ID number of the monitor that to be controlled via daisy chain from the current monitor. Press the “+” or “-” buttons to change the “Target ID” to show the ID number of the monitor to be controlled. To control the entire daisy chained monitors simultaneously, select “ALL”...
NOTE: If your PC is equipped only with a 25-pin serial port connector, a 25-pin serial port adapter is required. Contact your dealer for details. * In order to function, the RS-232C OUT terminal can only be connected to another monitor of the same model. Do not connect to other types of equipment.
To perform the monitor control from a web browser, you must have an exclusive application installed on your computer. The IP address and subnet mask of the monitor can be set on the Network Setting screen of the web browser by using an HTTP server function.
Example 1: When the host name of the monitor has been set to “pd.nec.co.jp”, access is gained to the network setting by specifying http://pd.nec.co.jp/index.html for the address or the entry column of the URL.
Apply Click this button to reflect the above settings. NOTE: Make sure to execute “the reboot” from the “reboot screen” or to turn the monitor off and then back on to enable the changing, after clicking [Apply]. NOTE: • If you execute a test, you may not receive an Alert mail.
(R, G, B, C, M and Y) rather than through the three axes (R, G and B) previously available. The sRGB standard provides the monitor with a uniform color profile. This assures that the colors displayed on the monitor are exactly the same as on the color printout (with sRGB supporting operating system and sRGB printer).
NOTE: As with all personal display devices, NEC DISPLAY SOLUTIONS recommends displaying moving images and using a moving screen saver at regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not in use.
