About the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) Screen

• If the display is near the vent of an air conditioner when it is deployed, make sure that

air from the air conditioner is not blowing on it. Heat from the heater may break the
LCD screen, and cool air from the cooler may cause moisture to form inside the display
resulting in possible damage. Also, if the display is cooled down by the cooler, the
screen may become dark, or the life span of the small fluorescent tube used inside the
display may be shortened.

due to the characteristics of the LCD screen and do not indicate a problem with the dis-

About the Small Fluorescent Tube

• A small fluorescent tube is used inside the display to illuminate the LCD screen.

* The fluorescent tube is an expendable part and has a limited service life.
* The fluorescent tube should last for approximately 10,000 hours, depending on oper-

ating conditions. (Using the display at low temperatures reduces the service life of the
fluorescent tube.)

* When the fluorescent tube reaches the end of its useful life, the screen will be dark

and the image will no longer be projected. If this happens, consult your dealer or the
nearest authorized PIONEER service facility.
