Installing the Express Console and Monitor

Follow these steps to install the console and its monitor:

  1. Place console on a hard, stable, flat surface. Leave at least six inches of space behind console for ventilation and cable clearance. Console should be at least six feet from dimmers and high-current AC lines.
CAUTION: Do not leave the console in a road case tray or on a soft surface. This will inhibit proper ventilation.
  1. Move console power switch (by fan on back panel) to the Off position.
  2. Connect the video cable from the monitor to the console connector labeled CRT Display on the back panel.
  3. Insert the female end of the console power cord into the connector on the power supply. Insert the round 6-pin connector on the power supply cord into the connector labeled Power Input on the console’s back panel.
  4. Insert the female end of the monitor power cord into the connector on the back of the monitor.
  5. Insert the male end of the monitor power cord into a grounded power outlet.
  6. Insert the male end of the console power cord into a grounded power outlet.
