Using the Monitor Safely

Please read these instructions completely before using the equipment.

  • Keep these instructions in a safe place.
  • Heed all warnings and follow all instructions.
  • Sit at least 18” / 45 cm from the display.
  • When installing the display, please leave 3.9” / 10 cm of open space around the display for ventilation safety purposes.
  • Always handle the display with care when moving it.
  • Always use cabinets or stands or installation methods recommended by the manufacturer of the display set.
  • Always use furniture that can safely support the display.
  • Always ensure the display is not overhanging the edge of the supporting furniture.
  • Always educate children about the dangers of climbing on furniture to reach the display or related equipment.
  • Always route and manage cords and cables connected to your display so they cannot be tripped over, pulled, or grabbed.
  • Exercise caution when removing the rear cover of the display. This display contains high-voltage parts.
  • Do not use this equipment near water. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose the display to rain or moisture.
  • Avoid exposing the display to direct sunlight or other sources of sustained heat. Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other devices (including amplifiers) that may increase the temperature of the display to dangerous levels.
  • Clean with a soft, dry cloth. If further cleaning is required, see the Maintenance section in this guide for further instructions.
  • Avoid touching the screen. Skin oils are difficult to remove.
  • Do not touch, rub, or apply pressure to the display screen, as it may permanently damage the screen.
  • Do not place the display in an unstable location.
  • Do not place the display on tall furniture (for example, cupboards or bookcases) without anchoring both the furniture and the display to a suitable support.
  • Do not place the display on cloth or other materials that may be located between the product and supporting furniture.
  • Place the display in a well-ventilated area. Do not place anything on the display that prevents heat dissipation.
  • Do not place heavy objects on the display, video cable, or power cord.
  • Do not place items that might tempt children to climb, such as toys and remote controls, on the top of the display or furniture on which the product is placed.
  • If smoke appears, an abnormal noise, or a strange odor is present, immediately switch the display off and contact your dealer or ViewSonic. It is dangerous to continue using the display.
  • Do not attempt to circumvent the safety provisions of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade and the third prong are provided for your safety. If the plug does not fit into your outlet, obtain an adaptor and do not attempt to force the plug into the outlet.
  • Please confirm the distribution system installed in the building. The system should provide a circuit breaker rated at 120/240V, 20A.
  • When connecting to a power outlet, DO NOT remove the grounding prong. Please ensure grounding prongs are NEVER REMOVED.
  • Protect the power cord from being treaded upon or pinched, particularly at the plug, and at the point where it emerges from the equipment. Be sure that the power outlet is located near the equipment so that it is easily accessible.
  • Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.

  • Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specified by the manufacturer, or sold with the equipment. When a cart is used, use with caution when moving the cart/equipment combination to avoid injury from tipping over.
  • Unplug this equipment when it will be unused for long periods of time.
  • Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Service will be required when the unit has been damaged in any way, such as: if the power-supply cord or plug is damaged, if liquid is spilled onto or objects fall into the unit, if the unit is exposed to rain or moisture, or if the unit does not operate normally or has been dropped.
  • Excessive sound volume from ear-/headphones may cause hearing damage/ hearing loss.
  • Adjustment of the volume control as well as the equalizer may increase the ear-/ headphones output voltage and therefore, the sound volume level.
  • The factors influencing the ear-/headphones output other than those specified by the manufacturer (e.g. operating system, equalizer software, firmware, driver) may increase the ear-/headphone output voltage and therefore, the sound volume level.
  • Fastening the display to a wall or fixed object using cordage or other restraining devices can help support the weight of the display in order to prevent the display from falling over.

NOTE:
  • Restraining device/cordage should be able to withstand 100N force.
  • Make sure the cordage is straightened, and any slack is removed. The back of the device shall face the wall to ensure the device cannot tilt under external force.
  • Make sure the display does not tilt under external force at any height and rotation angle of the device.
  • If the existing display is going to be retained and relocated, the same considerations as above should be applied.
