also included on the diskette. Place the diskette in the PC’s floppy disk drive
and click OK to install them.
10
Automatic Image Adjustment
The easiest way to set up the monitor is to display the adjustment test pattern
and use the monitor’s AUTO button. The display must be adjusted manually if
the test pattern is not available. Please refer to Manual Display Setup on page
18 for details.
The display must be adjusted:
• When the monitor is first installed
• If the resolution or refresh rate is changed
• If the PC’s graphics card is changed
• If the PC is changed
• After using the Recall function
Microsoft Windows
With Microsoft Windows and most types of graphics signals your screen’s
performance is easy to optimise using the test pattern program, Auto.exe, and
the monitor’s AUTO button.
To run the program, insert the diskette into a floppy disk, click on the Windows
Start button, click on Run, type A:\auto.exe and then click OK. Press the
monitor’s AUTO button to adjust the display.
Press the left mouse button to exit the program and then click “Exit”.

) Signal timings not shown in the table may not be supported. We
recommend that you set your graphics card to use one of the factory
preset timings to achieve the optimum screen image.
) There are 22 modes that are compatible with VESA standards, Windows
95, 98 and NT, and the Apple Macintosh.
) In some rare cases, the screen may show a small amount of noise. This
may be caused by non-standard signal frequencies from the VGA card. It
is not a defect. You can improve it by automatic adjustment or by
manually adjusting the Clock Phase and Pixel Frequency in the image
menu.
) Some interference lines may appear on your screen when shutting down
the computer system or turning off the monitor. This is normal and will
not harm the monitor.

Troubleshooting and Useful Hints
Troubleshooting
6
If you encounter any problems using this product, make sure that your monitor
is properly installed. Please refer to chapter 4 of this manual for the
installation guide. The answers to some common questions follow:
9
There is some noise or flickering on the screen or the picture is unstable.
Check:
‰ Signal cable connector pins. If there are bent or missing pins,
consult your place of purchase.
‰ Graphics card. Check that the drivers and settings are correct.
‰ The set up of the monitor. If you are using Windows re-run the test
pattern program (Auto.exe) that is on the floppy disk supplied with
the monitor and press the monitor’s AUTO button.
‰ This may be caused by non-standard signal frequencies from the
VGA card. It is not a defect and can be improved by manually
adjusting the Clock Phase and Pixel Frequency in the image menu.
‰ Scanning frequency. Change the settings of your graphics card to
one of the Supported Graphics Signals and Timings specified on
page 19 and re-align the monitor.
9
The image appears grainy or edges of objects appear jagged. Check:
‰ The resolution of the graphics card. Graphics resolutions below
1280 x 1024 will appear as full screen images, but they are not
optimal. Increase the resolution to 1280 x 1024 pixels.
9
I can't find the DV180 on the Windows 95, 98 or 2000 monitor lists.
‰ You need to update the Windows setup information file for your
DV180. This is on the diskette that was supplied with your monitor.
You can also download the files from the File Downloads section of
Mitsubishi Electric Australia’s web site at:
http://www.mitsubishi-electric.com.au
21
9
There is no picture on the screen. Check:
‰ Power saving mode. Press any key or move the mouse to deactivate
power saving and turn the monitor on.
‰ Power cord. Check that it is securely plugged into the wall socket
and into the monitor and that the wall socket is switched on.
‰ Signal cable connector pins. If there are bent or missing pins,
consult your place of purchase.
9
Characters look too dark or too light.
‰ Adjust the brightness and contrast settings.
9
The speakers don’t work. Check:
‰ Audio cable. Make sure that the audio cable is connected to the
PC’s “LINE-OUT” port and the monitor’s speaker port.
‰ Volume control. Make sure that the volume control at the rear of the
monitor’s base is not set to the minimum volume level.
9
The microphone doesn’t work. Check:
‰ Audio cable. Make sure that the audio cable is connected to the
PC’s “LINE-IN” port and the monitor’s microphone port.
9
There is noise or feedback from speakers when using the microphone.
‰ Move the speakers further away from the monitor or point them
away from the microphone.
‰ If the microphone is not being used, some sound cards will allow you
to mute the microphone setting of the Windows volume control. To
do this:
1. Double click the speaker icon on the Windows task bar or open
the Multimedia icon of the Control Panel.
2. Open the volume control window and select “Mute” under the
microphone volume adjustment.
22
9
The Auto key does not function properly and an "unsupported" message
shows.
‰ In some non-full-screen patterns, the Auto-key function cannot work
properly and an "unsupported" OSD will pop up. In this situation, you
need to use the Adjust wheel to set your screen up manually.
9
The sound of speakers distorts and the screen flashes when using
speakers.
‰ Check whether the audio cable is connected to “ Line Out” port of PC
rather than the “Speaker Out” port of the PC’s sound card.
