2.2 Unpacking and setting up your display
Your LCD monitor package will consist of the components listed below. Open shipping
container and lay all components on a flat clean surface.

2.4 Connecting the Display
1. Connect all cables to the computer first. This would include the VGA cable and the optional
RS 232 serial touch screen connection.
2. After connecting the cables between the LCD monitor and the computer, plug the customer
supplied +12VDC source to the 12V connection on the rear.
3. Once the +12V connection is made, the display is active.
4. If your computer was off, turn on your computer.
5. Your display should now operate as a normal computer display showing your windows or
whatever video is being sent to the flat panel.
Note: If for any reason the display goes blank and gives an “out of Range” or “No Input Signal”,
your computer or video source is putting out a signal that is out of range of the LCD’s video
board. If this happens, reboot the computer or video source and make sure you are inputting
the correct signal. If the display doesn’t work properly, it may be because:
(a) The resolution is to high or low for the LCD.
(b) The refresh rate is set to high. Refresh on an LCD is different than a CRT. Set the refresh to
60Hz. CRT’s need a high refresh rate to avoid flicker. The refresh rate has no impact on
LCD’s.
(c) The power source is incorrect.
(d) The unit is malfunctioning. If you believe this to be true, disconnect the video cable from the
rear of the LCD and connect to a known good computer CRT display. If the computer
display is working satisfactory and the video is within the appropriate range, then contact
Vartech Customer service for a RMA number at 800-223-8050.

Signal Connections
To avoid irregular operation and /or damage to the display, please insure correct video is being

TOUCH SCREEN
Introduction
Touch screens are a common means to interface operator inputs to a system. The universal
standard of Windows GUI (Graphical User Interface) has significantly increased the use of
touch screens.
There are four main touch technologies. The technologies are resistive, surface acoustic
wave (SAW), capacitive, and infrared (IR). Each touch technology has advantages and
disadvantages based on different user applications.
5.2
Installation
All Vartech Systems displays configured with a touch screen are supplied with a CDROM
which includes user manuals, application software, and drivers for various operating systems.
Insert the supplied CDROM into a CDROM drive and follow the installation instructions that
will appear on the screen.
Limited technical support is available by contacting Vartech Systems customer support at
800-223-8050.

Troubleshooting Tip

Image Persistence
The signal cable should be properly connected to the
display card and computer.
Try disconnecting the video cable from the display and
connecting to a CRT display if available to confirm the
presence of proper video.
Make sure power is connected to the proper DC or AC
source.
Make sure the resolution mode is supported by the display and
check settings of the display card.
Confirm that the video cable is not defective.
Image persistence occurs when a ghost of an image remains on
the screen after the monitor has been turned off. Unlike a CRT
monitor, an LCD monitor’s image persistence is not permanent.
To erase an image ghost, turn the monitor off for as long as the
image was displayed. If the image was on for one hour and the
ghost of the image remains, the display should be turned off for
one hour to erase the image. To avoid this problem, use a screen
saver.
Picture Quality & Image Stability ⇒ Check for proper video cable for proper grounding and
shielding.
⇒ Check the signal source for proper signal.
⇒ Check for proper adjustment of the Phase and Frequency
controls.
⇒ Check for proper recommended signal timing.
Green LED not lit
Check for proper power and power connections
Green LED blinking
This indicates absence of video or proper video for this display
Display image is not properly

No S-Video or NTSC operation

⇒
Adjust the Vertical and Horizontal size controls via the OSD.
(Reference setup adjustments)
⇒ Ensure that a supported mode is selected on the display card
or system being used. Consult the display card or system
manual for proper video.
Check for proper connections.
Check the setup instructions for proper input selection.
If these tips do not solve your problem, contact Vartech Systems Customer Service support.

CLEANING AND MAINTANENCE
Cleaning
Occasionally clean the display panel and cabinet with a soft cloth dampened (not soaked) with a
mild (non-abrasive) glass cleaner. Keep turning a fresh side of the cloth toward the screen surface to
avoid scratching it with accumulated grit.
Note:
The solvent should be applied only to the cloth, and not directly on the monitor screen.
Do not use paper products as they may scratch the surface. To minimize the risk of abrasion, allow
the screen to stand dry.
Special care should be taken when cleaning a touch screen or polycarbonate shield that is installed
over the screen. Abrasive and certain chemical cleaners can easily damage the surface.
Never use alcoholic or ammoniac cleaners to clean the polycarbonate shield or a touch screen.
Note:
For best results cleaning a monitor with the optional antireflective tempered glass display shield, a
solution of denatured alcohol is recommended to thoroughly clean the display.
Replacing a Line Cord
To avoid shock and fire hazards, the monitor’s power cord should be replaced if the insulation
becomes broken or if it develops a loose internal connection.
Other Maintenance
Qualified service personnel should perform all maintenance, except for the power cord replacement
described above.
