REFRAIN FROM OPENING THE CABINET AS THERE ARE HIGH-VOLTAGE COMPONENTS INSIDE. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL.

Warnings and Safety Precaution

This plasma monitor is designed and manufactured to provide long, trouble-free service. No maintenance other than cleaning is required.

Please see the section “Plasma monitor cleaning procedure” on the next page.

The plasma display panel consists of fine picture elements (cells) 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 60 minutes to cool the monitor. If the problem persists, contact your Marantz dealer for service.

2.Do not use this unit’s 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 power cord 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. The manufacturer 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.

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 power cord and have it serviced by an authorized 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 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.

8.To avoid sulfurization it is strongly recommended not to place the unit in a dressing room in a public bath or hot spring bath.

Plasma monitor cleaning procedure:

1.Use a soft dry cloth to clean the front panel and bezel area. Never use solvents such as alcohol or thinner to clean these surfaces.

2.Clean plasma ventilation areas with a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush nozzle attachment.

3.To ensure proper ventilation, cleaning of the ventilation areas must be carried out monthly. More frequent cleaning may be necessary depending on the environment in which the plasma monitor is installed.

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 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.

* Note: Burn-in is not covered by the warranty.

Contact Marantz Service Center for other recommended procedures that will best suit your particular application needs.

Mises en garde et précautions de sécurité

Ce moniteur à plasma a été conçu et fabriqué pour une utilisation fiable et durable. Il ne nécessite aucun entretien en dehors du nettoyage. Voir la section “Méthode de nettoyage du moniteur à plasma” plus loin. Le panneau à affichage plasma est constitué de fines particules d’images (cellules) dont plus de 99,99%sont actives. Certaines d’entre elles ne produisent pas de lumière ou restent allumées.

Pour des raisons de sé curité et pour é viter 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 se trouve le moniteur est particulièrement élevée, déplacer celui-ci dans un endroit plus frais et attendre environ 60 minutes qu’il refroidisse. Si le problème persiste, prendre contact avec le revendeur Marantz pour le service après-vente.

2.Ne pas raccorder la prise d’alimentation polarisée de ce périphérique à une rallonge ou une prise murale si les fiches ne peuvent pas être complètement insérées.

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 le câble d’alimentation électrique pendant les orages ou les longues périodes d’inactivité.

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 d’intervenir ou de réparer l’appareil. Le fabricant décline toute responsabilité en cas de blessure corporelle ou de dégâts matériels résultant d’une opération d’entretien quelconque effectuée par des personnes non qualifiées ou résultant de l’ouverture du couvercle arrière. Confier toute réparation à un centre de service agréé Marantz.

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’incident de ce genre, débrancher le câble d’alimentation électrique et confier le moniteur à un service après-vente agréé .

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 un montage et une installation correcte, il est fortement recommandé de faire appel à un revendeur agréé et qualifié.

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.

8.Pour éviter tout risque de sulfuration, il est fortement conseillé de ne pas installer l’appareil dans un vestiaire, un bain public ou un bain de source thermale.

Méthode de nettoyage du moniteur à plasma:

1.Nettoyer le panneau avant et le cadre en procédant à l’aide d’un chiffon doux et sec. Ne jamais utiliser de solvents du type alcool ou diluant pour le nettoyage de ces surfaces.

2.Nettoyer les prises d’aération du plasma en procédant à l’aide d’une brosse à poils doux fixée à un aspirateur.

3.Pour garantir la bonne ventilation du moniteur, nettoyer les prises d’air tous les mois. Un nettoyage plus fréquent peut s’avé rer né cessaire selon les conditions environnantes dans lesquelles le moniteur à plasma est utilisé.

Pour éviter les risques de brûlage du luminophore, les mesures suivantes sont recommandées:

Comme tous les périphériques d’affichage à base luminophore et tous les autres affichages gaz plasma, les moniteurs plasma peuvent être sujets au brûlage du luminophore dans certaines circonstances. Certaines conditions d’utilisation, telles que l’affichage continu d’une image statique pour une durée prolongée, peuvent causer le brû lage du luminophore si aucune précaution n’est prise. Pour protéger votre investissement dans ce moniteur à plasma, veuillez suivre les directives et les conseils suivantes pour minimiser l’occurence le marquage de l’écran:

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’entré e 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 le brûlage du luminophore:

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.

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

*Remarque: Le brûlage de l’écran n’est pas couvert par la garantie.

Contactez Marantz Service Center 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 7 of Model Information.

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.This 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 monitor’s native pixel resolution panel.

4.Use the signal cable 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, if necessary.

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 19" fixed mode is recommended for your monitor.

Connections with Equipment that have 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 24-pin signal cable and the ferrite cores (supplied) when making connections to the RGB3 (DVI) connector of the main unit.

Note that the RGB3 (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

You can connect your plasma monitor to a document camera. To do so, simply:

1.Turn off the power to your plasma monitor and document camera.

Note:

1. The VIDEO1 and RGB1 terminals can be used for either INPUT or OUTPUT.

When LOOP OUT is ON, do not connect an OUTPUT signal from another unit, that will place an extraordinary load on the other unit and may damage it.

2.LOOP OUT can not be turned ON while signals are input to RGB1 terminal.

3.LOOP OUT can be turned ON while signals are input to RGB1 terminal if the POWER is switched ON.

Information

To loop signals out to another plasma display, set the LOOP OUT to ON.

To create a video wall, set the VIDEO WALL menu items properly.

To connect monitors, please use a 1~2m (3.3~6.6 feet) BNC cable (any commercially available cable).

If the image quality is poor, do not use the monitor’s out terminal. Use a distribution amplifier (any commercially available distribution amplifier) to connect the split signals to the respective monitor INPUT terminals.

Being used as a video wall function, maximaly 4-screen is rough-standard with lower than 1024 768, 60Hz signal.

A distribution amplifier is particularly recommended when using a 9-screen video wall.

From the second monitor onward, connections require a BNC-RCA conversion cable or connector, a mini D-Sub 15 pin cable-BNC ( 5) cable or a conversion connector.

Cable Management

Using the cable clamps provided with the plasma display, bundle at the back of the unit the signal and audio cables connected to the display.

* The cable clamp will differ according to the model.
