DOC compliance Notice

This Class A digital apparatus meets all requirements of the Canadian Interference-Causing Equipment Regulations.

WARNING

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.

Warnings and Safety Precaution

The NEC Multimedia monitor PlasmaSync 4200W is designed and manufactured to provide long, troublefree 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.

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 in a closed cabinet or shelves.

The unit is equipped with cooling fans. If you enclose the unit in a cabinet or rack, be 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 NEC 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 unit to water or moisture.

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

5.Unplug unit during electrical storms or if 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. NEC 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 NEC 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.Locate set 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 NEC Service Center.

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

6.The equipment should be installed by a serviceperson.

No one other than a serviceperson should install the equipment. Attempting to do so may result in injury.

7.Do not display a same still image on the screenfor long, consecutive time. Otherwise, the afterimage may appear on a part of a panel.

AVERTISSEMENT

Cet équipement a été testé et certifié conforme avec les limitations des équipements numériques de Classe A, conformément à l'article & (du règlement FCC. Ces limites sont conçues pour assurer une protection raisonnable contre les interférences nuisibles lorsque l'équipement est utilisé en milieu commercial. Cet équipement génère, utilise, et peut produire de l'énergie de fréquence radio et, s'il n'est pas installé et utilisé selon le manuel d'instruction, peut provoquer des interférences nuisibles aux communications radio. L'utilisation de cet équipement dans une zone résidentielle est susceptible de provoquer des interférences nuisibles, dans quel cas l'utilisateur est tenu de remédier à ces interférences à ses frais.

Mises en garde et précautions de sécurité

Le moniteur Multimédia PlasmaSync 4200W de NEC est conçu et fabriqués pour assurer une longue durée de service sans problèmes. Aucun entretien à l’exception du nettoyage n’est nécessaire. Utiliser un chiffon doux et sec. Ne jamais utiliser de détergents puissants ou des solvents, tel que l'alcool ouun diluant pour nettoyer le moniteur à écran plasma.

Pour un fonctionnement sûr et afin d’éviter d’endommager l’appareil, lire attentivement et respecter les instructions suivantes.

Afin d’éviter tout risque d’électrocution et d’incendie:

1.Réserver un espace libre suffisant pour la ventilation afin d’éviter une accumulation de chaleur interne. Ne pas couvrir les trous d’aération arrière ou installer l’appareil dans un coffret fermé ou sur une étagère.

L’appareil est équipé d’ailettes de refroidissement sur le dessus. Si l’appareil est logé dans un coffret ou sur une étagère, s’assurer qu’il y a un espace libre suffisant pour la dissipation de la chaleur.

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. NEC 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 NEC.

Introduction

Introduction to the PlasmaSync 42–inch Plasma Monitor

NEC's PlasmaSync™ is a seamless blend of cutting-edge visual technology and sophisticated design.

At 42-inches, with a 16:9 aspect ratio, the PlasmaSync™ certainly makes a big impression. However, at a mere 3.6 inches/ 91mm thin, the monitor's sleek techno-art lines blend in well with most interiors. PlasmaSync's crisp, vivid image quality will transform data from any graphic medium from PCs to DVD playersinto art.

And weighing only 92.6 lbs/ 42kg, it actually can be hung almost anywhere.

NEC has made sure that a host of multimedia resources can be easily connected and displayed as brilliantly as intended on the PlasmaSync™ monitor.

Connecting your PC or Macintosh computer to your PlasmaSync 4200W will enable you to display your computer's screen image for an impressive presentation. The PlasmaSync 4200W supports the signals described on page 12.

To connect to a PC, Macintosh or computer equipped with an SVGA/VGA adapter or compatible graphics adapter, simply:

1.Turn off the power to your PlasmaSync 4200W and computer.

2.If your PC does not support SVGA/VGA you will need to install an SVGA/VGA graphics board. Consult your computer's owner's manual for your 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.Use the signal cable that's supplied to connect your PC or Macintosh computer to the PlasmaSync 4200W. For Macintosh, use the supplied monitor adapter to connect to your computer's video port.

4.Turn on the PlasmaSync 4200W and the computer.

5.If the PlasmaSync 4200W goes blank after a period of inactivity, it may be caused by a screen saver installed on the computer you've connected to the PlasmaSync 4200W.

When using a Macintosh with the PlasmaSync 4200W, set the DIP switch of the supplied monitor adapter according to your resolution. After setting, restart your Macintosh.
