Important information for Burn-in/Ghost
image
Always activate a moving screen saver
program when you leave your monitor
unattended. Always activate a periodic
screen refresh application if your monitor
will display unchanging static content.
Uninterrupted display of still or static
images over an extended period may
cause “burn in”, also known as “afterimaging” or “ghost imaging”, on your
screen.
"Burn-in", "after-imaging", or "ghost imaging" is a well-known phenomenon in LCD
panel technology. In most cases, the
“burned in” or “after-imaging” or “ghost
imaging” will disappear gradually over a
period of time after the power has been
switched off.
Warning
Failure to activate a screen saver, or a periodic
screen refresh application may result in severe”
burn-in” or “after-image” or “ghost image”
symptoms will not disappear and cannot be
repaired. The damage mentioned above is not
covered under your warranty.
Service
The casing cover should be opened only
by qualified service personnel.
If there is any need for any document for
repair or integration, please contact with
your local service center. (please refer to
the chapter of "Consumer Information

Installation
3.1 SmartContrast
Follow the instruction and complete the
installation.
What is it?
You can launch after installation is
completed.
A unique technology that dynamically analyzes
displayed content and automatically optimizes
an LCD monitor's contrast ratio for maximum
visual clarity and viewing enjoyment, stepping
up backlighting for clearer, crisper and brighter
images or dimming backlighting for clear display
of images on dark backgrounds.
If you want to launch later, you can either
click the shortcut on desktop or toolbar.
Why do I need it?
You want the very best visual clarity and
viewing comfort for every type of content.
SmartContrast dynamically controls contrast
and adjusts backlighting for clear, crisp, bright
gaming and video images or displays clear,
readable text for office work. By reducing your
monitor's power consumption, you save on
energy costs and extend the lifetime of your
monitor.
First launch -Wizard
How does it work?
The first time after installation of
SmartControl Lite, it will automatically go
to Wizard for first time launch.
When you activate SmartContrast, it will analyse
the content you are displaying in real time to
adjust colors and control backlight intensity. This
function will dynamically enhance contrast for a
great entertainment experience when viewing
videos or playing games.
The wizard will guide you through adjusting
your monitor performance step by step.
You can go to Plug-in menu to launch
wizard later on as well.

The requirements can be downloaded from our
web site. The requirements included in this label
have been developed by TCO Development in
co-operation with scientists, experts, users as
well as manufacturers all over the world. Since
the end of the 1980s TCO has been involved
in influencing the development of IT equipment
in a more user-friendly direction. Our labeling
system started with displays in 1992 and is
now requested by users and IT-manufacturers
all over the world. About 50% of all displays
worldwide are TCO certified.
TCO Certified is a third party verified program,
where every product model is tested by an
accredited impartial test laboratory. TCO
Certified represents one of the toughest
certifications for displays worldwide.
Some of the Usability features of the TCO
Certified for displays:
For display with glossy bezel the user should
consider the placement of the display as the
bezel may cause disturbing reflections from
surrounding light and bright surfaces.
Visual ergonomics for good image quality
is tested to ensure top performance and
reduce sight and strain problems. Important
parameters are luminance, contrast,
resolution, black level, gamma curve, colour
and luminance uniformity and colour
rendering.

Types of Pixel Defects
Pixel and sub pixel defects appear on the screen
in different ways. There are two categories of
pixel defects and several types of sub pixel
defects within each category.
7.1 Philips’ Flat Panel Monitors Pixel
Defect Policy
Philips strives to deliver the highest quality
products. We use some of the industry's most
advanced manufacturing processes and practice
stringent quality control. However, pixel or
sub pixel defects on the TFT Monitor panels
used in flat panel monitors are sometimes
unavoidable. No manufacturer can guarantee
that all panels will be free from pixel defects,
but Philips guarantees that any monitor with an
unacceptable number of defects will be repaired
or replaced under warranty. This notice explains
the different types of pixel defects and defines
acceptable defect levels for each type. In order
to qualify for repair or replacement under
warranty, the number of pixel defects on a TFT
Monitor panel must exceed these acceptable
levels. For example, no more than 0.0004% of
the sub pixels on a monitor may be defective.
Furthermore, Philips sets even higher quality
standards for certain types or combinations
of pixel defects that are more noticeable than
others. This policy is valid worldwide.
Bright Dot Defects
Bright dot defects appear as pixels or sub pixels
that are always lit or 'on'. That is, a bright dot is
a sub-pixel that stands out on the screen when
the monitor displays a dark pattern. There are
the types of bright dot defects.
One lit red, green or blue sub pixel.
Two adjacent lit sub pixels:
- Red + Blue = Purple
- Red + Green = Yellow
- Green + Blue = Cyan (Light Blue)
Pixels and Sub pixels
A pixel, or picture element, is composed of
three sub pixels in the primary colors of red,
green and blue. Many pixels together form an
image. When all sub pixels of a pixel are lit, the
three colored sub pixels together appear as a
single white pixel. When all are dark, the three
colored sub pixels together appear as a single
Three adjacent lit sub pixels (one white pixel).
26
7. Customer care and warranty
Proximity of Pixel Defects
Note
A red or blue bright dot must be more than 50
percent brighter than neighboring dots while
a green bright dot is 30 percent brighter than
neighboring dots.
Because pixel and sub pixels defects of the
same type that are near to one another may be
more noticeable, Philips also specifies tolerances
for the proximity of pixel defects.
Black Dot Defects
Black dot defects appear as pixels or sub pixels
that are always dark or 'off'. That is, a dark dot is
a sub-pixel that stands out on the screen when
the monitor displays a light pattern. These are
the types of black dot defects.
Pixel Defect Tolerances
In order to qualify for repair or replacement
due to pixel defects during the warranty period,
a TFT Monitor panel in a Philips flat panel
monitor must have pixel or sub pixel defects
exceeding the tolerances listed in the following
tables.

Q1: When I install my monitor what should
I do if the screen shows 'Cannot display
this video mode'?
Ans.: Recommended resolution for this
monitor: 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz.
An "after-image", "burn-in" or "ghost image"
remains after the power has been turned off.
Uninterrupted display of still or static
images over an extended period may cause
"burn in", also known as "after-imaging "
or "ghost imaging", on your screen. "Burnin", "after-imaging", or "ghost imaging" is a
well-known phenomenon in LCD panel
technology. In most cases, the "burned in"
or "after-imaging" or "ghost imaging" will
disappear gradually over a period of time
after the power has been switched off.
Unplug all cables, then connect your PC to
the monitor that you used previously.
In the Windows Start Menu, select Settings/
Control Panel. In the Control Panel
Window, select the Display icon. Inside the
Display Control Panel, select the 'Settings'
tab. Under the setting tab, in box labelled
'desktop area', move the sidebar to 1920 x
1080 pixels.
Always activate a moving screen saver
program when you leave your monitor
unattended.
Open 'Advanced Properties' and set the
Refresh Rate to 60 Hz, then click OK.
Always activate a periodic screen refresh
application if your LCD monitor will display
unchanging static content.
Restart your computer and repeat step 2
