About Your Apple Studio Display
Important Safety Instructions
m Turn off the computer before setting up your Apple Studio Display. Leave the computer
plugged into a grounded outlet.
The only way to disconnect the monitor’s power completely is to unplug the
power cord from the computer or electrical outlet. Make sure at least one end of the
power cord is within easy reach so that you can unplug the display if you need to.
Important
m Don’t press or put hard objects against the screen.
m Read all the setup instructions carefully before you plug your display into a power source.
Use only the power adapter that came with your display. Adapters for other
computer equipment may look similar, but they may damage your display.
Warning
This equipment is intended to be electrically grounded. This is a safety feature. Your
power cord has a plug that has a third grounding pin. Be sure to connect it only to a
grounded outlet. If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact a licensed
electrician to replace the outlet with a properly grounded outlet. Do not defeat the
purpose of the grounding plug!
If your power cord connects directly to the power socket on your computer, be sure that
the computer is grounded.
For additional safety information, see Chapter 5, “Safety, Health, and Maintenance.”
Choosing a Good Location for Your Display
When determining where to place your display, keep the following points in mind:
m Make sure the power adapter cable, power cord, and display cables easily reach from the
back of the display to your computer and an electrical outlet or power strip.
m All cables should be unobstructed when you adjust the display. If you don’t allow enough
clearance, the connectors might be damaged when the cables hit an obstruction.

Safety, Health, and Maintenance
Disconnect the power plug (by pulling the plug, not the cord) if any of the following
conditions exists:
m The power cord or plug becomes frayed or otherwise damaged.
m You spill something into the case.
m Your display is exposed to rain or any other excess moisture.
m Your display has been dropped or the case has been otherwise damaged.
m You suspect that your display needs service or repair.
m You want to clean the case or screen. (Use only the recommended procedures. See
“Cleaning the Screen and Case” on page 29.)
Be sure that you always follow these instructions:
m Keep your display away from sources of liquids and moisture.
m Keep the display’s vents free from obstruction.
m Don’t hang anything on the display.
m Keep these instructions handy for reference by you and others.
m Follow all instructions and warnings dealing with your system.
Warning Never remove the case from the display or power adapter! You could come in
contact with hazardous voltage. Electrical equipment may be hazardous if misused.
Operation of this product, or similar products, must always be supervised by an adult. Do
not allow children access to the interior of any electrical product and do not permit them
to handle any cables.
27
Healthy Use of Your Computer Equipment
Use the following illustration to help you in positioning your monitor.
45–70 cm (18–28 in.)
Shoulders relaxed
Forearms and hands
in a straight line
Forearms level or
tilted down slightly
Lower back supported
Top of the screen at or slightly
below eye level (You may need
to adjust the height of your
display)
Tilt screen to avoid
reflected glare
Clearance under work surface
Thighs tilted slightly
Feet flat on the floor
Here are some guidelines for adjusting the furniture in your work area to accommodate your
physical size and shape.
m An adjustable chair that provides firm, comfortable support is best. Adjust the height of
the chair so your thighs are horizontal and your feet flat on the floor. The back of the
chair should support your lower back (lumbar region). Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions for adjusting the backrest to fit your body properly.
m When you use the computer keyboard, your shoulders should be relaxed. Your upper arm
and forearm should form an approximate right angle or be tilted down slightly, with your
wrist and hand in roughly a straight line. Make sure the armrests of your chair don’t
interfere with your positioning. You may have to raise your chair so your forearms and
hands are at the proper angle to the keyboard. If this makes it impossible to rest your feet
flat on the floor, you can use a footrest with adjustable height and tilt to make up for any
gap between the floor and your feet. Or try lowering the desktop to eliminate the need
for a footrest. Another option is to use a desk with a keyboard tray that is lower than the
regular work surface.
m Position the mouse at the same height as your keyboard. Allow adequate space to use the
mouse comfortably to the immediate right or left.
m Position the monitor directly in front of you with the keyboard directly in line with the
monitor. The best distance from your eyes to the screen is up to you, although most
people seem to prefer 18 to 28 inches (45 to 70 cm).
28
Chapter 5
m Position the monitor to minimize glare and reflections on the screen from overhead lights
and windows. Tilt the monitor to the best angle for viewing, helping to reduce or
eliminate glare from lighting sources you can’t move.
m Adjust the brightness of the screen to ensure the best image quality and viewing comfort.
For more health and safety information about your computer equipment, choose Mac Help
from the Help menu in the Finder. You can also see the following (English only) World Wide
Web site:

General Maintenance
To maintain your Apple Studio Display and ensure its long life:
m Do not block the display’s vents.
m Do not let liquid get on or into the display.
m Do not press on the surface of the display screen.
m Do not write on the screen or touch the screen with a sharp object.
m Turn off your monitor when the computer is idle for a prolonged time.
m If you will not be using your display and computer for a day or more, turn off the
computer and display or use Energy Saver.
Important
Using a screen-saver program will reduce the lifespan of the monitor’s
backlighting.
Cleaning the Screen and Case
If you need to clean the screen or case beyond wiping it down with a dry cloth, follow these
instructions:
1
Turn your computer and display off.
2
Disconnect the display’s power cord from the electrical outlet or power strip.
3
Disconnect the USB and DVI cables from the back of the computer.
4
Clean the screen with soft, lint-free paper or cloth dampened with mild soap and water.
Warning Do not spray liquid directly onto the display screen. Liquid could drip inside
the display and cause electrical shock.
5
Wipe the case surfaces lightly with a clean, soft cloth dampened with water.
Warning Don’t use alcohol, aerosol sprays, solvents, or abrasives that might damage the
finish on the case.
Safety, Health, and Maintenance
29
Protecting Your Display From Theft
The back of the display has a built-in slot for connecting a security lock. This lets you attach a
narrow, flexible cable that you can use to secure your display to prevent theft. Your monitor
cable also has a security ring that you can use to secure your monitor. Security locks are
available from an Apple-authorized dealer or computer retailer.
F Security slot
Follow the instructions that came with the locking cable to secure it to your display.
When you attach a locking cable, make sure you leave enough slack in other
cables attached to the display. If you don’t, you may damage the cables or the connectors
when you adjust the position of the display.
Important
Do You Need to Install a Graphics Card?
Your Apple Studio Display works with a graphics card with a DVI digital-only connector. If
your computer doesn’t have the required graphics card, you must install one to use this
display.
If you are not sure whether your computer or graphics card has the appropriate built-in
video capability, check with an Apple-authorized dealer.
Note: If you’re using more than one display, you may need a graphics card for each display
you are using.

FCC Statement
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with
the specifications in Part 15 of FCC rules. See instructions if interference to radio or television reception is
suspected.
Radio and Television Interference
The equipment described in this manual generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not
installed and used properly—that is, in strict accordance with Apple’s instructions—it may cause interference with
radio and television reception.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with
the specifications in Part 15 of FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable protection
against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur
in a particular installation.
You can determine whether your computer system is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops,
it was probably caused by the computer or one of the peripheral devices.
If your computer system does cause interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by
using one or more of the following measures:
m Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
m Move the computer to one side or the other of the television or radio.
m Move the computer farther away from the television or radio.
m Plug the computer into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain
the computer and the television or radio are on circuits controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
If necessary, consult an Apple-authorized service provider or Apple. See the service and support information that
came with your Apple product. Or, consult an experienced radio/television technician for additional suggestions.
Important Changes or modifications to this product not authorized by Apple Computer, Inc., could void the FCC
Certification and negate your authority to operate the product.
This product was tested for FCC compliance under conditions that included the use of Apple peripheral devices and
Apple shielded cables and connectors between system components. It is important that you use Apple peripheral
devices and shielded cables and connectors between system components to reduce the possibility of causing
interference to radios, television sets, and other electronic devices. You can obtain Apple peripheral devices and the
proper shielded cables and connectors through an Apple-authorized dealer. For non-Apple peripheral devices,
contact the manufacturer or dealer for assistance.
