FCC Class B Radio Frequency Interference Statement WARNING: (FOR FCC
CERTIFIED MODELS)
NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed
to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy,
and if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference
will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one
or more of the following measures:
1. Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
2. Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
3. Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
4. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
NOTICE :
1. The changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.
2. Shielded interface cables and AC power cord, if any, must be used in order to
comply with the emission limits.
3. The manufacturer is not responsible for any radio or TV interference caused by
unauthorized modification to this equipment. It is the responsibilities of the user to
correct such interference.
WARNING :
To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose the monitor to rain or moisture.
Dangerously high voltages are present inside the monitor. Do not open the cabinet.
Refer servicing to qualified personnel only.
PRECAUTIONS
z Do not use the monitor near water, e.g. near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink,
laundry tub, swimming pool or in a wet basement.
z Do not place the monitor on an unstable cart, stand, or table. If the monitor falls, it
can injure a person and cause serious damage to the appliance. Use only a cart or
stand recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the monitor. If you mount the
monitor on a wall or shelf, use a mounting kit approved by the manufacturer and
follow the kit instructions.
z Slots and openings in the back and bottom of the cabinet are provided for
ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the monitor and to protect it from
overheating, be sure these openings are not blocked or covered. Do not place the
monitor on a bed, sofa, rug, or similar surface. Do not place the monitor near or over
a radiator or heat register. Do not place the monitor in a bookcase or cabinet unless
proper ventilation is provided.
z The monitor should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the
label. If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your
dealer or local power company.
z The monitor is equipped with a three-pronged grounded plug, a plug with a third
(grounding) pin. This plug will fit only into a grounded power outlet as a safety
feature. If your outlet does not accommodate the three-wire plug, have an electrician
install the correct outlet, or use an adapter to ground the appliance safely. Do not
defeat the safety purpose of the grounded plug.
z Unplug the unit during a lightning storm or when it will not be used for long periods
of time. This will protect the monitor from damage due to power surges.
z Do not overload power strips and extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or
electric shock.
z Never push any object into the slot on the monitor cabinet. It could short circuit
parts causing a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquids on the monitor.
z Do not attempt to service the monitor yourself; opening or removing covers can
expose you to dangerous voltages and other hazards. Please refer all servicing to
qualified service personnel.
z To ensure satisfactory operation, use the monitor only with UL listed computers
which have appropriate configured receptacles marked between 100 - 240V AC,
Min. 2.5A.
z The wall socket shall be installed near the equipment and shall be easily accessible.
zAttention: Disconnect the power cord to stop the power supply to the monitor.
Plug & Play DDC1/2B Feature
This monitor is equipped with VESA DDC1/2B capabilities according to the VESA
DDC STANDARD. It allows the monitor to inform the host system of its identity and,
depending on the level of DDC used, communicate additional information about its
display capabilities. The communication channel is defined in two levels, DDC1 and
DDC2B.
The DDC1 is a unidirectional data channel from the display to the host that
continuously transmits EDID information. The DDC2B is a bidirectional data channel
based on the I²C protocol. The host can request EDID information over the DDC2B
channel.
USING THE RIGHT POWER CORD:
The accessory power cord for the Northern American region is the wall plug with
NEMA 5-15 style and is UL listed and CSA labeled. The voltage rating for the power
cord shall be 125 volts AC.
Supplied with units intended for connection to power outlet of personal computer:
Please use a cord set consisting of a minimum No. 18 AWG, type SJT or SVT three
conductors flexible cord. One end terminates with a grounding type attachment plug,
rated 10A, 250V, CEE-22 male configuration. The other end terminates with a
molded-on type connector body, rated 10A, 250V, having standard CEE-22 female
configuration.

(see figure 1)
• Locate the cavities at the bottom front of the monitor.
• Insert the pegs on the swivel base into these cavities. Push the swivel base forward
until the swivel base locks in place.
• To remove the swivel base, hold the bottom of the swivel base, then push it out.
POWER CORD
Power Source:
1. Make sure the power cord is the correct type that required in your area.
2. This monitor has a universal power supply that allows operation in either 100/120V
AC or 220/240V AC voltage area (No user adjustment is required).
3. Connect the power cord into your monitor’s power input socket, and then plug the
other end into a 3-pin AC power outlet. The power cord may be connected to either
a wall power outlet or the power outlet socket on your PC, depending on the type of
power cord supplied with your monitor.
VIDEO CABLE
Connecting the Video Cable: the monitor comes with a built-in video cable. Plug
the signal cable′s 15-pin connector into the computer's video port and tighten the two
screws on the cable connector. (see figure 2)
Caution: Don’t bend the signal cable, otherwise it will break the inner wire.
Connecting the Power Cord: Plug the power cord into the monitor's AC power
socket. Then plug the power cord into a grounded AC outlet or UL-approved power
strip or the power output socket on your PC.
Caution: If the AC outlet is not grounded, install the proper grounding adapter
(not supplied).
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
The other control knobs are located at the base of the monitor (See Figure 3). By
changing these settings, the picture can be adjusted to your personal preferences.
• The power cord should be connected.

NOTES
• Do not install the monitor in a location near heat sources such as radiators or air
ducts , or in a place subject to direct sunlight , or excessive dust or mechanical
vibration or shock.
• Save the original shipping carton and packing materials, as they will come in handy
if you ever have to ship your monitor.
• For maximum protection, repackage your monitor as it was originally packed at the
factory.
• To keep the monitor looking new, periodically clean it with a soft cloth. Stubborn
stains may be removed with a cloth lightly dampened with a mild detergent solution.
Never use strong solvents such as thinner, benzene, or abrasive cleaners, since these
will damage the cabinet. As a safety precaution, always unplug the monitor before
cleaning it.
