of all units plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed 10 amperes.
 Ensure that the total ampere ratings on all units plugged into the
extension cord is not above the cord’
s rating.
 If the power supply cord, which came with your monitor, is to be
connected to the PC instead of the wall outlet, Use an UL/TUV
approved computers with receptacle rated 100~240V AC, 50/60Hz,
1.0A (minimum) only.

the video signal connector at the rear of the system. Tighten the two screws
on the cable connector.
3.Connect the AC/DC power cord to the DC jack.
4.Connect the power cable.
4. Display Modes
Micro-controller Features
The micro-controller automatically detects the video board installed in your
system. When you turn on the monitor, the micro-controller checks the
display mode memory stored in the user setting area of the video board, and
then the factory presetting area. It then adjusts to the proper display mode.
The micro-controller has the memory capacity to store different display
modes, including timing formats and display-settings. This memory capacity
is divided into two parts: the user setting area and the factory presetting area.
9
User Setting Area
The user settings by the user on the last display mode maintain in the memory
of the micro-controller. You can change the settings or add a nonstandard mode.
The micro-controller always detects and displays the last mode stored in the user
setting area when the monitor is turned on.
Factory Presetting Area
There are some preferred display modes preset in the micro-controller. These
display modes are preset at the factory and include the most popular display
modes currently available. The micro-controller searches for a proper display
mode in this area if it fails to find a proper display mode in the user setting
area.

The monitor uses the H. Sync and V. Sync signals to determine the operation
mode to enter.
The monitor power-saving feature automatically turns off H. Sync and V. Sync if
there is no input from the system for a certain period of time. To use this feature,
you need a green PC that is compliant with the VESA power saving feature or a
software utility to detect system input such as keyboard or mouse.
Time Settings
Time settings are adjusted from the system unit by software. To fulfill the
requirements in the NUTEK specification 803299/94 the total time from
indicated inactivity to Power Saving position A2 (VESA OFF) must not be
set more than 70 minutes. We recommend you switch off the monitor when
you do not intend to use it for a while.

11. Trouble Shooting
1) Power on but no picture
→ Make sure the VGA cable is tightly connected from the video output connector
on the video card to the video input connector on the monitor.
→ Make sure you are using the standard power adapter coming with the monitor.
→ Check your video card if the driver is correctly installed. If there is no video
signal from the video card, “
NO INPUT SIGNAL”will show on the screen.
2) Wrong or abnormal colors
→ If any color (red, green, or blue) is missing, check video cable to make sure it is
securely connected. Loose pins in the cable connector can cause a bad
connection.
3) The text and icon look blurry
→ LCD monitor has a native resolution which pixels are produced by cells in
fixed positions. When a resolution different from the native resolution is
chosen, the LCD monitor uses various interpolation methods to achieve the
pseudo resolution. To achieve the optimum viewing quality, choose the native
resolution of the panel is recommended.
→ Use “
Auto Tuning”function to adjust image quality on the OSD menu or you
can hold button 2 for 3 seconds to do auto tuning.
4) Display position is incorrect
→ Use “
Auto Tuning”function to adjust image position on the OSD menu or you
can hold button 2 for 3 seconds to do auto tuning.
5) Speakers have no sound
→ Make sure the audio cable is tightly connected from the audio output jack on
the PC to the audio input jack on the monitor.
15
6) Residue image
→ If an image remains on the screen for an extended period of time, it may be
imprinted in the screen and leave a residue image. It is characteristic of liquid
crystal and is not malfunction or deterioration of the liquid crystal. The residue
image will disappear after a period of time. It is recommended to set up the
screen saver for your LCD monitor.
