Safety Precautions and Maintenance
FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE, PLEASE NOTE THE
FOLLOWING WHEN SETTING UP AND USING
THE MULTISYNC® LCD COLOR MONITOR:
• DO NOT OPEN THE MONITOR. There are no user serviceable parts inside and opening or
removing covers may expose you to dangerous shock hazards or other risks. Refer all servicing
to qualified service personnel.
• Do not spill any liquids into the cabinet or use your monitor near water.
• Do not insert objects of any kind into the cabinet slots, as they may touch dangerous voltage
points, which can be harmful or fatal or may cause electric shock, fire or equipment failure.
• Do not place any heavy objects on the power cord. Damage to the cord may cause shock or fire.
• Do not place this product on a sloping or unstable cart, stand or table, as the monitor may fall,
causing serious damage to the monitor.
• When operating the MultiSync LCD monitor with its AC 125-240V power supply, use a power
supply cord that matches the power supply voltage of the AC power outlet being used. The power
supply cord you use must have been approved by and comply with the safety standards of your
country. (Type H05VV-F should be used in Europe)
• In UK, use a BS-approved power cord with molded plug having a black (5A) fuse installed for use
with this monitor. If a power cord is not supplied with this monitor, please contact your supplier.
• Do not place any objects onto the monitor and do not use the monitor outdoors.
• The inside of the flourescent tube located within the LCD monitor contains mercury.
Please follow the bylaws or rules of your municipality to dispose of the tube properly.
Immediately unplug your monitor from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service
personnel under the following conditions:
• When the power supply cord or plug is damaged.
• If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the monitor.
• If the monitor has been exposed to rain or water.
• If the monitor has been dropped or the cabinet damaged.
• If the monitor does not operate normally by following operating instructions.
• Do not bend power cord.
• Do not use monitor in high temperatured, humid, dusty, or oily areas.
• If glass is broken, handle with care.
• Do not cover vent on monitor.
• If monitor or glass is broken, do not come in contact with the liquid crystal and handle with care.
• Allow adequate ventilation around the monitor so that heat can properly
dissipate. Do not block ventilated openings or place the monitor near a
radiator or other heat sources. Do not put anything on top of monitor.
• The power cable connector is the primary means of detaching the system
from the power supply. The monitor should be installed close to a power
outlet which is easily accessible.
• Handle with care when transporting. Save packaging for transporting.
Image Persistence
Image persistence is when a residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on
the screen. Unlike CRT monitors, LCD monitors’ image persistence is not permanent, but constant
images being displayed for a long period of time should be avoided.
To alleviate image persistence, turn off the monitor for as long as the previous image was
displayed. For example, if an image was on the monitor for one hour and a residual image
remains, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to erase the image.
NOTE: As with all personal display devices, NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display recommends
using a moving screen saver at regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the
monitor when not in use.

CORRECT PLACEMENT AND ADJUSTMENT OF THE MONITOR
CAN REDUCE EYE, SHOULDER AND NECK FATIGUE. CHECK THE
FOLLOWING WHEN YOU POSITION THE MONITOR:
• For optimum performance, allow 20 minutes for
warm-up.
• Adjust the monitor height so that the top of the
screen is at or slightly below eye level. Your eyes
should look slightly downward when viewing the
middle of the screen.
• Position your monitor no closer than 16 inches
and no further away than 28 inches from your
eyes. The optimal distance is 20 inches.
• Rest your eyes periodically by focusing on an
object at least 20 feet away. Blink often.
• Position the monitor at a 90° angle to windows and other light sources to
minimize glare and reflections. Adjust the monitor tilt so that ceiling lights do
not reflect on your screen.
• If reflected light makes it hard for you to see your screen, use an anti-glare filter.
• Clean the LCD monitor surface with a lint-free, non-abrasive cloth. Avoid using
any cleaning solution or glass cleaner!
• Adjust the monitor’s brightness and contrast controls to enhance readability.
• Use a document holder placed close to the screen.
• Position whatever you are looking at most of the time (the screen or
reference material) directly in front of you to minimize turning your head
while you are typing.
• Avoid displaying fixed patterns on the monitor for long periods of time to avoid
image persistence (after-image effects).
• Get regular eye checkups.
Ergonomics
To realize the maximum ergonomics benefits, we recommend the following:
• Use the preset Size and Position controls with standard signals
• Use the preset Color Setting
• Use non-interlaced signals with a vertical refresh rate between 60-75Hz
• Do not use primary color blue on a dark background, as it is difficult to see and
may produce eye fatigue to insufficient contrast

TCO’95
Black Model
Congratulations! You have just purchased a TCO’95 approved and
labeled product! Your choice has provided you with a product developed
for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to reducing the
burden on the environment and also, to the further development of
environmentally adapted electronics products.
Why do we have environmentally labelled computers?
In many countries, environmental labelling has become an established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and services to the environment. The main problem, as far as
computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful
substances are used both in the products and during the manufacturing. Since it has not been
possible for the majority of electronics equipment to be recycled in a satisfactory way, most
of these potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter Nature.
There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy consumption levels, that are
important from the viewpoints of both the work (Internal) and natural (external) environments.
Since all methods of conventional electricity generation have a negative effect on the
environment (acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste, etc.), it is vital to
conserve energy. Electronics equipment in offices consume an enormous amount of energy
since they are often left running continuously.
What does labelling involve?
This product meets the requirements for the TCO’95 scheme which provides for international
and environmental labelling of personal computers. The labelling scheme was developed as
a joint effort by the TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees),
Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and NUTEK (The
National Board for Industrial and Technical Development in Sweden).
The requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, emission
of electrical and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety.
The environmental demands concern restrictions on the presence and use of heavy metals,
brominated and chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among
other things. The product must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to
have an environmental plan which must be adhered to in each country where the company
implements its operational policy. The energy requirements include a demand that the
computer and/or display, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce its power
consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time to reactivate the
computer shall be reasonable for the user.
Labelled products must meet strict environmental demands, for example, in respect of the
reduction of electric and magnetic fields, physical and visual ergonomics and good usability.
TCO’95 is a co-operative project between TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional
Employees), Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and
NUTEK (The National Board for Industrial and Technical Development in Sweden).
Environmental Requirements
Brominated flame retardants
Brominated flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and
housings. In turn, they delay the spread of fire. Up to thirty percent of the plastic in a computer
casing can consist of flame retardant substances. These are related to another group of
environmental toxins, PCBs, which are suspected to give rise to similar harm, including
19
1-21
TCO’95 –continued
reproductive damage in fisheating birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative*
processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that
disturbances in foetus development may occur.
TCO’95 demand requires that plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not
contain organically bound chlorine and bromine.
Lead**
Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and capacitors. Lead damages
the nervous system and in higher doses, causes lead poisoning.
TCO’95 requirement permits the inclusion of lead since no replacement has yet been
developed.
Cadmium**
Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the colourgenerating layers of certain
computer displays. Cadmium damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses.
TCO’95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more than 25 ppm (parts per million)
of cadmium. The colourgenerating layers of display screens must not contain any cadmium.
Mercury**
Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays, switches, and back-light systems, Mercury
damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses.
TCO’95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more than 25 ppm (parts per million)
of mercury. It also demands that no mercury is present in any of the electrical or electronics
components concerned with the display unit, except the back-light system.
CFCs (freons)
CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards and in the manufacturing
of expanded foam for packaging. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone
layer in the stratosphere, causing increased reception on Earth of ultraviolet light with
consequent increased risks of skin cancer (malignant melanoma).
The relevant TCO’95 requirement; Neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the
manufacturing of the product or its packaging.
*Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living organisms.
**Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are Bio-accumulative.
