Safety Information
▪
Before setting up the display, carefully read all the documentation that came with
the package.
▪
To prevent fire or shock hazard, never expose the display to rain or moisture.
▪
Never try to open the display cabinet. The dangerous high voltages inside the
display may result in serious physical injury.
▪
If the power supply is broken, do not try to fix it by yourself. Contact a qualified
service technician or your retailer.
▪
Before using the product, make sure all cables are correctly connected and the
power cables are not damaged. If you detect any damage, contact your dealer
immediately.
▪
Slots and openings on the back or top of the cabinet are provided for ventilation.
Do not block these slots. Never place this product near or over a radiator or heat
source unless proper ventilation is provided.
▪
The display should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on
the label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult
your dealer or local power company.
▪
Use the appropriate power plug which complies with your local power standard.
▪
Do not overload power strips and extension cords. Overloading can result in fire
or electric shock.
▪
Avoid dust, humidity, and temperature extremes. Do not place the display in any
area where it may become wet. Place the display on a stable surface.
▪
Unplug the unit during a lightning storm or if it will not be used for a long period of
time. This will protect the display from damage due to power surges.
▪
Never push objects or spill liquid of any kind into the slots on the display cabinet.
▪
To ensure satisfactory operation, use the display only with UL listed computers
which have appropriate configured receptacles marked between 100-240V AC.
▪
If you encounter technical problems with the display, contact a qualified service
technician or your retailer.

v
Care and Cleaning
▪
Before you lift or reposition your display, it is better to disconnect the cables and
power cord. Follow the correct lifting techniques when positioning the display.
When lifting or carrying the display, grasp the edges of the display.
Do not lift the display by the stand or the cord.
▪
Cleaning. Turn your display off and unplug the power cord. Clean the display
surface with a lint-free, non-abrasive cloth. Stubborn stains may be removed with
a cloth dampened with mild cleaner.
▪
Avoid using a cleaner containing alcohol or acetone. Use a cleaner intended for
use with the LCD. Never spray cleaner directly on the screen, as it may drip
inside the display and cause an electric shock.
The following symptoms are normal with the display:
▪
The screen may flicker during the initial use due to the nature of the fluorescent
light. Turn off the Power Switch and turn it on again to make sure that the flicker
disappears.
▪
You may find slightly uneven brightness on the screen depending on the desktop
pattern you use.
▪
When the same image is displayed for hours, an afterimage of the previous
screen may remain after switching the image. The screen will recover slowly or
you can turn off the Power Switch for hours.
▪
When the screen becomes black or flashes, or cannot work anymore, contact
your dealer or service centre to fix it. Do not repair the screen by yourself!
