Design and specifications are subject to change without notice.
The AC leakage from any exposed metal part to earth ground and from all
exposed metal parts to any exposed metal part having a return to chassis,
must not exceed 0.5 mA (500 microamperes).
Leakage current can be measured by any one of three methods.
1. A commercial leakage tester, such as the Simpson 229 or RCA WT-
540A. Follow the manufacturers' instructions to use these instruments.
2. A battery-operated AC milliammeter. The Data Precision 245 digital
multimeter is suitable for this job.
3. Measuring the voltage drop across a resistor by means of a VOM or
battery-operated AC voltmeter. The "limit" indication is 0.75 V, so
analog meters must have an accurate low-voltage scale. The Simpson 250
and Sanwa SH-63Trd are examples of a passive VOMs that are suitable.
Nearly all battery operated digital multimeters that have a 2 V AC range
are suitable. (See Fig. A)
After correcting the original service problem, perform the following safety
checks before releasing the set to the customer:
1. Check the area of your repair for unsoldered or poorly-soldered
connections. Check the entire board surface for solder splashes and
2. Check the interboard wiring to ensure that no wires are "pinched" or
contact high-wattage resistors.
3. Check that all control knobs, shields, covers, ground straps, and
mounting hardware have been replaced. Be absolutely certain that you
have replaced all the insulators.
4. Look for unauthorized replacement parts, particularly transistors, that
were installed during a previous repair. Point them out to the customer
and recommend their replacement.
5. Look for parts which, though functioning, show obvious signs of
deterioration. Point them out to the customer and recommend their
6. Check the line cords for cracks and abrasion. Recommend the
replacement of any such line cord to the customer.
7. Check the connector shell, metal trim, "metallized" knobs, screws, and
all other exposed metal parts for AC Leakage. Check leakage as de-

(ANALOG RGB SIGNAL ONLY)
This monitor meets the power-saving guidelines set by VESA,
ENERGY STAR, and NUTEK. If the monitor is connected to a
computer or video graphics board that is DPMS (Display Power
Management Signaling) compliant, the monitor will
automatically reduce power consumption as shown below.
When your computer enters the "active off" mode, the input signal is
cut and "No input signal" appears on the screen. After 20 seconds, the
monitor enters the power saving mode.

When the monitor receives an input signal, it
automatically adjusts the picture's position and
sharpness (phase/pitch), and ensures that a clear
picture appears on the screen.
The factory preset mode
When the monitor receives an input signal, it automatically
matches the signal to one of the factory preset modes stored in the
monitor's memory to provide a high quality picture at the center
of the screen. If the input signal matches the factory preset mode,
the picture appears on the screen automatically with the
appropriate default adjustments.
If input signals do not match one of the factory
When the monitor receives an input signal that does not match one
of the factory preset modes, the automatic picture quality
adjustment function of this monitor is activated to ensure that a
clear picture always appears on the screen (within the following
monitor frequency ranges):
Consequently, the first time the monitor receives input signals
that do not match one of the factory preset modes, the monitor
may take a longer time than normal to display the picture on the
screen. This adjustment data is automatically stored in memory so
that next time, the monitor will function in the same way as when
the monitor receives the signals that match one of the factory
If you adjust the phase, pitch, and picture position
For some input signals, the automatic picture quality adjustment
function of this monitor may not completely adjust the picture
position, phase, and pitch. In this case, you can set these
adjustments manually (MANUAL, INSTRUCTION page 15).
If you set these adjustments manually, they are stored in memory
as user modes and automatically recalled whenever the monitor
receives the same input signals.
This monitor is equipped with a self-diagnosis function. If there is
a problem with your monitor or computer(s), the screen will go
blank and the 1 (power) indicator will light up green. If the 1
(power) indicator is lit in orange, the computer is in power saving
mode. Try pressing any key on the keyboard or moving the

If all four color bars appear (white, red, green, blue), the monitor
is working properly. Reconnect the video input cables and check
the condition of your computer(s).
