Warnings and Safety Precaution

The Marantz plasma monitor is designed and manufactured to provide long, trouble-free service. No maintenance other than cleaning is required. Use a soft dry cloth to clean the panel. Never use solvents such as alcohol or thinner to clean the panel surface.

The plasma display panel consists of fine picture elements (cells). Although Marantz produces the plasma display panels with more than 99.99 percent active cells, there may be some cells that do not produce light or remain lit.

For operating safety and to avoid damage to the unit, read carefully and observe the following instructions. To avoid shock and fire hazards:

1.Provide adequate space for ventilation to avoid internal heat build-up. Do not cover rear vents or install the unit in a closed cabinet or shelves.

If you install the unit in an enclosure, make sure there is adequate space at the top of the unit to allow hot air to rise and escape. If the monitor becomes too hot, the overheat protector will be activated and the monitor will be turned off. If this happens, turn off the power to the monitor and unplug the power cord. If the room where the monitor is installed is particularly hot, move the monitor to a cooler location, and wait for the monitor to cool for 60 minutes. If the problem persists, contact your Marantz dealer for service.

2.Do not use the power cord polarized plug with extension cords or outlets unless the prongs can be completely inserted.

3.Do not expose the unit to water or moisture.

4.Avoid damage to the power cord, and do not attempt to modify the power cord.

5.Unplug the unit during electrical storms or if the unit will not be used over a long period.

6.Do not open the cabinet which has potentially dangerous high voltage components inside. If the unit is damaged in this way the warranty will be void. Moreover, there is a serious risk of electric shock.

7.Do not attempt to service or repair the unit. Marantz is not liable for any bodily harm or damage caused if unqualified persons attempt service or open the back cover. Refer all service to authorized Marantz Service Centers.

NOTE:

When you connect a computer to this monitor, attach the supplied ferrite cores. If you do not do this, this monitor will not comform to mandatory FCC standards. Attaching the ferrite cores:

Set the ferrite cores on both ends of the DVI cable (not supplied), and both ends of the power cable (supplied). Close the lid tightly until the clamps click.

Use the band to fasten the ferrite core (supplied) to the DVI cable.

To avoid damage and prolong operating life:

1.Use only with 120V 50/60Hz AC power supply. Continued operation at line voltages greater than 120 Volts AC will shorten the life of the unit, and might even cause a fire hazard.

2.Handle the unit carefully when installing it and do not drop.

3.Set the unit away from heat, excessive dust, and direct sunlight.

4.Protect the inside of the unit from liquids and small metal objects. In case of accident, unplug the unit and have it serviced by an authorized Marantz Service Center.

5.Do not hit or scratch the panel surface as this causes flaws on the surface of the screen.

6.For correct installation and mounting it is strongly recommended to use a trained,authorized Marantz dealer.

7.As is the case with any phosphor-based display (like a CRT monitor, for example) light output will gradually decrease over the life of a Plasma Display Panel.

Recommendations to avoid or minimize phosphor burn-in

Like all phosphor-based display devices and all other gas plasma displays, plasma monitors can be susceptible to phosphor burn under certain circumstances. Certain operating conditions, such as the continuous display of a static image over a prolonged period of time, can result in phosphor burn if proper precautions are not taken. To protect your investment in this Marantz plasma monitor, please adhere to the following guidelines and recommendations for minimizing the occurrence of image burn:

*Always enable and use your computer’s screen saver function during use with a computer input source.

*Display a moving image whenever possible.

*Change the position of the menu display from time to time.

*Always power down the monitor when you are finished using it.

If the plasma monitor is in long term use or continuous operation take the following measures to reduce the likelihood of phosphor burn:

*Lower the Brightness and Contrast levels as much as possible without impairing image readability.

*Display an image with many colors and color gradations (i.e. photographic or photo-realistic images).

*Create image content with minimal contrast between light and dark areas, for example white characters on black backgrounds. Use complementary or pastel color whenever possible.

*Avoid displaying images with few colors and distinct, sharply defined borders between colors.

Contact Marantz Service Center at 1-800-270-4533 for other recommended procedures that will best suit your particular application needs.

Mises en garde et précautions de sécurité

Le moniteur Plasma Marantz a été conçu et fabriqué pour une utilisation fiable et durable. Il ne nécessite aucun entretien en dehors du nettoyage. Utiliser un chiffon doux et sec pour nettoyer la surface de l’écran. Ne jamais utiliser de solvant comme l’alcool ou le diluant. Le panneau à affichage plasma est constitué de fines particules d’images ou pixels (cellules). Bien que Marantz produise des panneaux à affichage plasma avec plus de 99,99 % de cellules actives, il peut y avoir des cellules qui ne produisent pas de lumière

ou qui restent allumées.

Pour des raisons de sécurité et pour éviter d’endommager l’appareil, lire attentivement les instructions suivantes.

Pour éviter les risques d’éléctrocution et d’incendie:

1.Laisser suffisament d’espace autour de l’appareil pour la ventilation et éviter toute augmentation excessive de la température interne. Ne pas couvrir les évents ou l’installer dans un endroit trop exigu.

Si vous installez l’appareil dans un espace clos, assurezvous qu’il y ait suffisamment d’espace au dessus pour permettre à l’air chaud de s’élever et de s’évacuer. Si la température du moniteur devient excessive, la protection contre les surchauffes entrera en action et coupera l’alimentation. Dans ce cas, éteindre l’appareil et débrancher le câble d’alimentation. Si la température de la pièce dans laquelle le moniteur est installé est particulièrement excessive, déplacer l’appareil dans un endroit plus frais et le laisser refroidir 60 minutes. Si le problème persiste, prendre contact avec le revendeur Marantz pour le service après-vente.

2.Ne pas utiliser la fiche polarisée du cordon d’alimentation avec des prolongateurs ou des prises de courant, sauf si les lames peuvent être insérées à fond.

3.Ne pas exposer à L’eau ou à l’humidité.

4.Eviter d’endommager le cordon d’alimentation, et ne pas modifier le cordon d’alimentation.

5.Débrancher l’appareil pendant les tempêtes ou si l’appareil n’est pas utilisé pendant une longue période.

6.Ne pas ouvrir le coffret. Des composants de haute tension se trouvent à l’intérieur. Si l’appareil est endommagé de cette manière, la garantie devient caduque. De plus, il y a risque d’électrocution.

7.Ne pas essayer de réparer ou entretenir l’appareil soimême. Marantz ne saura être tenu pour responsable pour toute blessure ou dommage causé par des personnes non qualifiées qui essayent de réparer ou d’ouvrir le couvercle arrière. Confier toute réparation à un centre de service agréé Marantz.

REMARQUE:

Lorsque vous branchez un micro-ordinateur sur ce moniteur, fixez les noyaux en ferrites fournis. Si vous ne le faîtes, le moniteur ne sera pas en conformité avec les exigences des standards FCC.

Fixation des noyaux en ferrite.

Monter les tores en ferrite aux deux extrêmités du câble DVI (non fourni) et aux deux extrêmités du câble d’alimentation électrique (fourni).

Fermez doucement le couvercle jusqu’à ce que les crans se clipsent.

Fixer le tore en ferrite (fourni) au câble DVI à l’aide d’un collier.

Pour éviter des dommages et prolonger la durée de service de l’appareil:

1.N’utiliser qu’une source d’alimentation de 120 V 50/ 60 Hz CA. Le fait d’utiliser l’appareil en continu à des tensions de ligne supérieures à 120 Volts CA réduit sa durée de vie et risque de provoquer un incendie.

2.Manipuler l’appareil avec soin pendant son déplacement et ne pas le faire tomber.

3.Eloigner l’appareil des endroits chauds, très poussiéreux et exposés en plein soleil.

4.Eviter que des liquides et des petits objets métalliques pénètrent à l’intérieur de l’appareil. En cas d’accident, débrancher l’appareil et le confier à un centre de service agréé Marantz.

5.Ne pas frapper ou rayer la surface de la écran plasma, car des défauts risquent de se produire sur la surface de la écran plasma.

6.Pour effectuer une installation et un montage corrects, il est recommandé de faire appel au concessionnaire Marantz autorisé et spécialisé.

7.Comme c’est le cas pour tout affichage à base de phosphore (comme un moniteur CRT, par exemple), la puissance de lumière baisse graduellement au cours de la vie du Panneau d’Affichage à Plasma.

Pour éviter le risque de combustion au phosphore, les mesures suivantes sont recommandées :

Comme tous les appareils d’affichage à base de phosphore et tous les autres affichages à gaz plasma, les moniteurs Plasma peuvent être sujets à la combustion au phosphore dans certaines circonsatnces. Certaines conditions d’utilisation, telles que l’affichage continu d’une image statique pour une durée prolongée, peuvent causer des brûlures au phophore si aucune précaution n’est prise. Pour protéger votre investissement dans ce moniteur Plasma Marantz, veuillez suivre les directives et les recommandations suivantes pour minimiser l’occurence de brûlure d’image :

Assurez-vous de mettre en marche et d’utliser l’économisateur d’écran chaque fois que c’est possible lorsque vous l’utilisez avec une source d’entrée d’ordinateur.

Affichez une image en mouvement aussi souvent que possible.

Changer la position de l’affichage de menu de temps à autre.

Coupez toujours l’alimentation lorsque vous avez terminé d’utiliser la moniteur.

Si le moniteur est en usage continu ou longue durée, prenez les mesures suivantes afin d’éviter l’occurence de combustion au phosphore :

Abaissez le niveau de l’image (contraste, luminosité) autant que possible, sans faire perdre la lisibilité de l’image.

Affichez une image avec de nombreuses couleurs et graduations de couleur (par ex. des images photographiques ou photo-réalistes).

Créez un contenu d’image avec un contraste minimal entre les zones sombres et les zones claires, par exemple, des caractères blancs sur un fond noir. Utilisez des couleurs complémentaires ou pastels le plus souvent possible.

Évitez d’afficher des images avec peu de couleurs et des limites nettes et clairement définies entre les couleurs.

Contactez Marantz Service Center au 1-800-270-4533 pour d’autres procédures recommandées qui conviendront le mieux au besoin de votre appareil.

Connecting Your PC or Macintosh Computer

Connecting your PC or Macintosh computer to your plasma monitor will enable you to display your computer’s screen image for an impressive presentation. The plasma monitor supports the signals described on page 52.

To connect a PC, Macintosh or compatible graphics adapter, simply:

1.Turn off the power to your plasma monitor and computer.

2.If your PC does not support SXGA/XGA/SVGA/VGA you will need to install an SXGA/XGA/SVGA/VGA graphics board. Consult your computer’s owner’s manual for your SXGA/XGA/SVGA/VGA configuration. If you need to install a new board, see the manual that comes with your new graphics board for installation instructions.

3.The plasma monitor provides signal compatibility up to VESA 1600 1200 (UXGA). However, it is not recommended to use this resolution due to image readability on the monitors 853 480 native pixel resolution panel.

4.Use the signal cable that’s supplied to connect your PC or Macintosh computer to the plasma monitor. For Macintosh, use the monitor adapter to connect to your computer’s video port.

5.Turn on the plasma monitor and the computer.

6.If the plasma monitor goes blank after a period of inactivity, it may be caused by a screen saver installed on the computer

you’ve connected to the plasma monitor.

When using a Macintosh with the plasma monitor, the following four display standards are supported using the Macintosh adapter :

13" fixed mode 16" fixed mode 19" fixed mode 21" fixed mode

The 13" fixed mode is recommended for the plasma monitor.

Connections with Equipment that has a Digital Interface

Connections can be made with equipment that is equipped with a digital interface compliant with the DVI (Digital Visual Interface) standard.

*Use a DVI 29-pin signal cable and the ferrite cores (supplied) when making connections to the RGB3 IN (DVI) connector of the main unit.

Note that the RGB3 IN(DVI) terminal does not support analog RGB input source.

Note:

1.Input TMDS signals conforming to DVI standards. The TMDS input corresponds to 1 link.

2.To maintain display quality, use a cable with a quality prescribedbyDVIstandardsthatiswithin5metersinlength.

Connecting Your Document Camera
