Congratulations!
You have just purchased a TCO'99 approved and labelled product!
Your choice has provided you with a product developed for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to reducing the
burden on the environment and also to the further development of
environmentally adapted electronics products.
Why do we have environmentally labelled computers?
In many countries, environmental labelling has become an established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and
services to the environment. The main problem, as far as computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that
environmentally harmful substances are used both in the products and during their manufacture.
Since it is not so far possible to satisfactorily recycle the majority of electronics equipment, most of these potentially damaging
substances sooner or later enter nature.
There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints of
both the work (internal) and natural (external) environments. Since all methods of electricity generation have a negative effect on
the environment (e.g. acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste), it is vital to save energy. Electronics equipment
in offices is often left running continuously and thereby consumes a lot of energy.
What does labelling involve?
This product meets the requirements for the TCO'99 scheme, which provides for international and environmental labelling of
personal computers. The labelling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional
Employees), Svenska Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and Statens Energimyndighet (The
Swedish National Energy Administration). Approval requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics,
usability, emission of electric and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety. The environmental demands
impose restrictions on the presence and use of heavy metals, brominated and chlorinated flame retardants,
CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among other things. The product must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is
obliged to have an environmental policy which must be adhered to in each country where the company implements its operational
policy. The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or display, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce
its power consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time to reactivate the computer shall be reasonable for
the user. Labelled products must meet strict environmental demands, for example, in respect of the reduction of electric and
magnetic fields, physical and visual ergonomics and good usability. On the Back page of this folder, you will find a brief summary
of the environmental requirements met by this product. The complete
environmental criteria document may be ordered from:

Environmental requirements
Flame retardants
Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and housings. Their purpose is to prevent, or at least
to delay the spread of fire. Up to 30% of the plastic in a computer casing can consist of flame retardant substances. Most flame
retardants contain bromine or chloride, and those flame retardants are chemically related to another group of environmental toxins,
PCBs. Both the flame retardants containing bromine or chloride and the PCBs are suspected of giving rise to severe health effects,
including reproductive damage in fish-eating birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative* processes. Flame retardants have
been found in human blood and researchers fear that disturbances in foetus development may occur. The elevant TCO'99
demand requires that plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not contain flame retardants with organically bound
bromine or chlorine. Flame retardants are allowed in the printed circuit boards since no substitutes are available.
Cadmium
Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the colour-generating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium
damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO'99 requirement states that batteries, the colorgenerating layers of display screens and the electrical or electronics components must not contain any cadmium.
Mercury
Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. It damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The
relevant TCO'99 requirement states that batteries may not contain any mercury. It also demands that mercury is not present in any
of the electrical or electronics components associated with the labelled unit.
CFCs (freons)
The relevant TCO'99 requirement states that neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the manufacture and assembly of the
product. CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the
ozone layer in the stratosphere, causing increased reception on earth of ultraviolet light with e.g. increased risks of skin cancer
(malignant melanoma) as a consequence.
Lead**
Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and capacitors. Lead damages the nervous system and in higher
doses, causes lead poisoning. The relevant TCO'99 requirement permits the inclusion of lead since no replacement has yet been
developed.
* Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living organisms
** Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are Bio-accumulative.

Troubleshooting
This LCD Monitor has pre-adjusted using factory standard VGA timings. Due to the output timing differences among various VGA
cards in the market, users may initially experience an unstable or unclear display whenever a new display mode or new VGA card
is selected.
Attention
This LCD Monitor Supports Multiple VGA Modes. Refer to the Standard Timing Table for a listing of modes supported by this LCD
Monitor.
PROBLEM Picture is unclear and unstable
The picture is unclear and unstable, please perform the following steps :
1. Enter PC to "Shut Down Windows" status while you're in MS-Windows environment.
2. Check the screen to see if there's any black vertical stripes appear. If there are,
take advantage of the "Clock" function in OSD menu and adjust (by increment or decrement numbers)
until those bars disappear.
3. Move to "FOCUS" function in OSD menu again and adjust the monitor screen to its most clear display.
4. Click "No" on "Shut Down Windows" and back to the normal PC operating environment.
PROBLEM There is no picture on LCD Monitor
If there's no picture on the LCD Monitor, please perform the following steps:
1. Make sure the power indicator on the LCD Monitor is ON, all connections are secured,
and the system is running on the correct timing. Refer to Chapter 3 for information on timing.
2. Turn off the LCD Monitor and then turn it back on again. If there is still no picture,
press the Adjustment Control button several times.
3. If step 2 doesn't work, connect your PC system to another external CRT.
If your PC system Functions properly with a CRT Monitor but it does not function with the LCD Monitor,
the output timing of the VGA card may be out of the LCD's synchronous range.
Please change to an alternative mode listed in the Standard Timing Table or replace the VGA card,
and then repeat steps 1 and 2.
PROBLEM There is no picture on LCD Monitor
If you have chosen an output timing that is outside of the LCD Monitor's synchronous range (Horizontal: 24 ~ 80 KHz and Vertical:
56 ~ 75 Hz), the OSD will display a "Out of Range" message. Choose a mode that is supported by your LCD Monitor. Also, if the
signal cable is not connected to LCD monitor at all or properly, the monitor screen will display a message "No Input Signal".
Caution: Do not attempt to service the monitor yourself or open the computer
yourself. Please refer all servicing to qualified service personnel if
the problems cannot be solved in "Troubleshooting" section.
