Notes on LCD panel

  • Do not get the LCD panel wet or expose it to liquids. This may cause a malfunction.

  • Do not press down hard on the LCD panel as doing so can distort the picture or cause a malfunction (i.e., the picture may become unclear or the LCD panel may be damaged).
  • Do not touch the panel with objects other than with your finger as it may damage or break the LCD panel.
  • Clean the LCD panel with a dry soft cloth. Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners, or antistatic spray.
  • Do not use the unit outside the temperature range 0 ºC to 40 ºC (32 ºF to 104 ºF).
  • If your car was parked in a cold or hot place, the picture may not be clear. However, the monitor is not damaged and the picture will become clear after the temperature in your car becomes normal.
  • Some stationary blue, red, or green dots may appear on the monitor. These are called “bright spots” and can happen with any LCD. The LCD panel is precision-manufactured with more than 99.99% of its segments functional. However, it is possible that a small percentage (typically 0.01%) of the segments may not light up properly. This will not, however, interfere with your viewing.
