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 color-generating 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 cardis 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.
