1.2Control Options: Get to Know Your Flat Panel Display

You can operate your flat panel display from the panel buttons or with the remote control. The following sections provide button locations/operations for the panel and the remote control.

1.2.1Control Buttons and More on the Flat Panel Display

Your flat panel display has buttons, indicators, and sensors on the lower front bezel with more buttons on the rear panel. Refer to the drawings below for specific locations and functions. Or, to identify back ports and terminals only, check the terminal position sheet located near the panel’s terminal compartment.

Introduction to the Flat Panel Displays

1.2.2Operating the Remote Control

The remote control for the flat panel display is a powerful tool. This section provides a brief introduction to your remote control while later sections explore more advanced operations.

Insert the Batteries into the Remote Control

To open, push and slide the battery cover in the direction of the arrows.

Load the supplied two AA size batteries by the negative polarity (–)ends first.

The batteries supplied with this product may have a shorter life expectancy due to storage conditions. If the remote control seems to be failing or is weak, replace the provided batteries with new alkaline batteries. Never mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new batteries can shorten the life of new batteries or cause

chemical leaks in old batteries. Also, mixing different types or brands of batteries can cause issues as batteries brands have slightly different characteristics.

Note: If the flat panel display’s remote control is not needed for an extended length of time, remove the batteries.

When disposing of used batteries, please comply with governmental regulations or environmental public institution’s rules that apply in your country/area.

Remote Control Issues

There are a small number of issues that can affect your remote control but the most common is weak batteries. Weak batteries in the remote control can cause communication to fail or only operate sporadically. In this situation, try moving closer to the panel and attempt to control the panel with the remote. If the panel responds, change the batteries. If moving closer has no effect on the panel, check the surroundings for objects that might be blocking the signal. Also consider other equipment with remote controls that are in the area around the panel. Objects and other IR signals can disrupt the remote. For more help with your remote control, refer to “7.1 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)”.

Operating Range for the Remote Control

To control the flat panel display, point the remote towards the sensor on the panel’s bottom right corner. For easy operation, keep the distance between the remote control and the sensor less than 7 m (23 feet) and at an angle of less than 30 degrees.

30º

7 m

(23 feet)

 

30º

Sensor

The remote control may not work properly if the sensor is in direct sunlight or very bright lighting. If your viewing room is naturally bright, change the position of the panel or physically use the remote control closer to the panel’s sensor.

Note: If the remote control is left sitting in direct sunlight or under a very strong light, the case could warp or deform.

1.2.3Buttons on the Remote Control

Except for a few options, commands available through the buttons on the flat panel display are duplicated on the remote control. The remote control can be programmed to control other equipment such as a DVD Player, Surround Sound system, etc. A later section entitled “6. Use Other Equipment With Your Flat Panel Display” explains how to use the remote to control other equipment.

This section identifies and describes the buttons on the remote control.
