The equipment should be installed near an easily accessible outlet.
Installation
Do not install or leave the monitor:
• In places subject to extreme temperatures, for example near a
radiator, heating vent, or in direct sunlight. Subjecting the
monitor to extreme temperatures, such as in an automobile
parked in direct sunlight or near a heating vent, could cause
deformations of the casing or malfunctions.
• In places subject to mechanical vibration or shock.
• Near any equipment that generates a strong magnetic field,
such as a TV or various other household appliances.
• In places subject to inordinate amounts of dust, dirt, or sand, for
example near an open window or an outdoor exit. If setting up
temporarily in an outdoor environment, be sure to take
adequate precautions against airborne dust and dirt. Otherwise
irreparable malfunctions could occur.
Place this unit on a flat surface. Do not place it on an uneven
surface like the edge of a desk. If a part of this unit sticks out from
such surface, it may fall or cause damaged and injury.
Please note that the LCD screen is made with highprecision technology. However, black points or bright
points of light (red, blue, or green) may appear
constantly on the LCD screen, and irregular colored
stripes or brightness may appear on the LCD screen.
This is not malfunction.
(Effective dots: more than 99.99%)
Maintenance
• Be sure to unplug the power cord from the power outlet before
cleaning your monitor.
• Clean the LCD screen with a soft cloth. If you use a glass
cleaning liquid, do not use any type of cleaner containing an
anti-static solution or similar additive as this may scratch the
LCD screen’s coating.
• Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a soft cloth lightly
moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type
of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent, such as alcohol or
benzine.
• Do not rub, touch, or tap the surface of the screen with sharp or
abrasive items such as a ballpoint pen or screwdriver. This type
of contact may result in a scratched picture tube.
• Note that material deterioration or LCD screen coating
degradation may occur if the monitor is exposed to volatile
solvents such as insecticide, or if prolonged contact is
maintained with rubber or vinyl materials.
Transportation
• Disconnect all cables from the monitor and grasp the monitor
firmly with both hands when transporting. If you drop the
monitor, you may be injured or the monitor may be damaged.
• When you transport this monitor for repair or shipment, use the
original carton and packing materials.
Installation on a wall or a mounting arm
If you intend to install the display on a wall or a mounting arm, be
sure to consult qualified personnel.
Note that the back cover must be removed for this type of
installation.
Handling the LCD screen
Disposal of the monitor
• Do not leave the LCD screen facing the sun as it can damage
the LCD screen. Take care when you place the monitor by a
window.
• Do not push on or scratch the LCD screen. Do not place a heavy
object on the LCD screen. This may cause the screen to lose
uniformity or cause LCD panel malfunctions.
• If the monitor is used in a cold place, a residual image may
appear on the screen. This is not a malfunction. The screen
returns to normal as the temperature rises to a normal operating
level.
• If a still picture is displayed for a long time, a residual image
may appear for a while. The residual image will eventually
disappear.
• The LCD panel becomes warm during operation. This is not a
malfunction.

Technical Features
Power saving function
This monitor meets the power-saving guidelines set by VESA,
ENERGY STAR, and NUTEK. If the monitor is connected to a
computer or video graphics board that is DPMS (Display Power
Management Standard) for Analog input/DMPM (DVI Digital
Monitor Power Management) for Digital input compliant, the
monitor will automatically reduce power consumption as shown
below.

Setting the MODE (PICTURE)
If you press the
button on the lower side of the monitor
repeatedly, you can select MODE from MOVIE t PC t
AUTO t GAME.
When you select “AUTO,” the monitor automatically adjusts the
screen brightness according to the brightness of the surroundings
(Automatic brightness adjustment function). For more
information, see “Automatic brightness adjustment function
(light sensor)”.
Press the
button, the mode changes as follows.
When the monitor receives an input signal, it automatically
matches the signal to one of the factory preset modes stored in the
monitor’s memory to provide a high quality picture at the center
of the screen. If the input signal matches the factory preset mode,
the picture appears on the screen automatically with the
appropriate default adjustments.

Automatic brightness adjustment
function (light sensor)
This monitor is provided with a feature to automatically adjust the
screen brightness according to the brightness of the surroundings.
The brightness of the screen is set to the most appropriate level by
button on the lower side of
setting MODE to AUTO with the
the monitor, or in the PICTURE menu. The default setting of the
brightness of the screen is set to MOVIE.
Also, when you set MODE to AUTO with the
button, the
adjustment bar is also displayed. You can adjust the bar with the
m/M buttons. Screen brightness changes according to the level
you set.

When the monitor receives an input signal, it
automatically adjusts the picture’s position and
sharpness (phase/pitch), and ensures that a clear
picture appears on the screen.
The factory preset mode

The default setting of MODE is set to “MOVIE.” When you press
the
button once, “MOVIE” (the default setting) is displayed,
and when you press again, “PC” is displayed.
Each time you press the
Automatic picture quality
adjustment function (analog RGB
signal only)
When the monitor receives an input signal that does not match one
of the factory preset modes, the automatic picture quality
adjustment function of this monitor is activated to ensure that a
clear picture always appears on the screen (within the following
monitor frequency ranges):
Horizontal frequency: 28–80 kHz
Vertical frequency: 48–75 Hz
Consequently, the first time the monitor receives input signals
that do not match one of the factory preset modes, the monitor
may take a longer time than normal to display the picture on the
screen. This adjustment data is automatically stored in memory so
that next time, the monitor will function in the same way as when
the monitor receives the signals that match one of the factory
preset modes.
If you adjust the phase, pitch, and picture position
manually
For some input signals, the automatic picture quality adjustment
function of this monitor may not completely adjust the picture
position, phase, and pitch. In this case, you can set these
adjustments manually (page 13). If you set these adjustments
manually, they are stored in memory as user modes and
automatically recalled whenever the monitor receives the same
input signals.
Note
While the automatic picture quality adjustment function is activated, only
the 1 (power) switch will operate.
Troubleshooting
Before contacting technical support, refer to this section.
