FOR YOUR SAFETY
Before operating the monitor, please read this manual thoroughly. This manual should be
retained for future reference.
FCC Class B Radio Frequency Interference Statement
WARNING: (FOR FCC CERTIFIED MODELS)
NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class
B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy, and if not
installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to
radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur
in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the
user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
1. Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
2. Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
3. Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
4. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
NOTICE:
1. The changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
2. Shielded interface cables and AC power cord, if any, must be used in order to comply
with the emission limits.
3. The manufacturer is not responsible for any radio or TV interference caused by
unauthorized modification to this equipment. It is the responsibilities of the user to
correct such interference.
WARNING:
To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose the monitor to rain or moisture.
Dangerously high voltages are present inside the monitor. Do not open the cabinet. Refer
servicing to qualified personnel only.

PRECAUTIONS
• Do not use the monitor near water, e.g. near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink,
laundry tub, swimming pool or in a wet basement.
• Do not place the monitor on an unstable cart, stand, or table. If the monitor falls, it
can injure a person and cause serious damage to the appliance. Use only a cart or
stand recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the monitor. If you mount
the monitor on a wall or shelf, use a mounting kit approved by the manufacturer and
follow the kit instructions.
• Slots and openings in the back and bottom of the cabinet are provided for ventilation.
To ensure reliable operation of the monitor and to protect it from overheating, be
sure these openings are not blocked or covered. Do not place the monitor on a bed,
sofa, rug, or similar surface. Do not place the monitor near or over a radiator or heat
register. Do not place the monitor in a bookcase or cabinet unless proper ventilation
is provided.
• The monitor should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on
the label. If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult
your dealer or local power company.
• The monitor is equipped with a three-pronged grounded plug, a plug with a third
(grounding) pin. This plug will fit only into a grounded power outlet as a safety feature.
If your outlet does not accommodate the three-wire plug, have an electrician install
the correct outlet, or use an adapter to ground the appliance safely. Do not defeat
the safety purpose of the grounded plug.
• Unplug the unit during a lightening storm or when it will not be used for long periods
of time. This will protect the monitor from damage due to power surges.
• Do not overload power strips and extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or
electric shock.
• Never push any object into the slot on the monitor cabinet. It could short circuit
parts causing a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquids on the monitor.
• Do not attempt to service the monitor by yourself; opening or removing covers can
expose you to dangerous voltages and other hazards. Please refer all servicing to
qualified service personnel.
• To ensure satisfactory operation, use the monitor only with UL listed computers
which have appropriate configured receptacles marked between 100 - 240V AC, Min.
5A.
• The wall socket should be installed near the equipment and shall be easily accessible.

SPECIAL NOTES ON LCD MONITORS
The following symptoms are normal with LCD monitors and do not indicate a problem.
NOTES
• You may find slightly uneven brightness on the screen depending on the desktop
pattern you use.
• The LCD screen has effective pixels of 99.99% or more. It may include blemishes of
0.01% or less such as a missing pixel or a pixel lit all of the time.
• Due to the nature of the LCD screen, an afterimage of the previous screen may
remain after switching the image when the same image has been displayed for a long
time. The monitor will slowly recover from this.
• When the screen becomes black or flashing, or cannot illuminate any more, contact
your dealer or service center to replace parts. Do not repair the screen by yourself!

PLUG AND PLAY
Plug & Play DDC2B Feature
This monitor is equipped with VESA DDC2B capabilities according to the VESA DDC
STANDARD. It allows the monitor to inform the host system of its identity and,
depending on the level of DDC used, communicate additional information about its
display capabilities.
The DDC2B is a bidirectional data channel based on the I²C protocol. The host can
request EDID information over the DDC2B channel.
THIS MONITOR WILL APPEAR TO BE NON-FUNCTIONAL IF THERE IS
NO VIDEO INPUT SIGNAL. IN ORDER FOR THIS MONITOR TO OPERATE
PROPERLY,THERE MUST BE A VIDEO INPUT SIGNAL.
This monitor meets the Green monitor standards as set by the Video Electronics
Standards Association (VESA) and The Swedish Confederation Employees. This feature is
designed to conserve electrical energy by reducing power consumption when there is no
video-input signal present. When there is no video input signal this monitor, following a
time-out period, will automatically switch to an Standby mode. This reduces the monitor’s
internal power supply consumption. After the video input signal is restored, full power is
restored and the display is automatically redrawn. The appearance is similar to a “Screen
Saver” feature except the display is completely off. The display is restored by pressing a
key on the keyboard, or clicking the mouse.

Possible Solution
Check if the Power Switch is in the ON position.
Power Cord should be connected.
Check if the PC system is Plug & Play compatible.
Check if the Video Card is Plug & Play compatible.
Check if the D-15 plug pin of Video Cable is bent.
Adjust the Contrast and Brightness Controls.
Move electrical devices that may cause electrical
interference.
Computer Power Switch should be in the ON position.
Computer Video Card should be snugly seated in its
slot.
Make sure monitor’s video cable is properly connected
to the computer.
Inspect monitor’s video cable and make sure none of
the pins are bent.
Make sure computer is operational by pressing the
CAPS LOCK key on the keyboard while observing the
CAPS LOCK LED. The LED should either turn ON or
OFF after pressing the CAPS LOCK key.
Inspect the monitor’s video cable and make sure that
none of the pins are bent.
Adjust pixel frequency (CLOCK) and PHASE or press
hot-key (AUTO).
• Adjust RGB color or select color temperature.
• When the brightness of the screen lowers after being
used for a certain period and the function of the display
is affected, send it to our authorized service center for
repair.
• Adjust CLOCK and PHASE or perform hot- key
(AUTO-key).
CLOCK (pixel frequency) controls the number of pixels scanned by one horizontal
sweep. If the frequency is not correct, the screen shows vertical stripes and the picture
does not have correct width.
PHASE adjusts the phase of the pixel clock signal. With a wrong phase adjustment the
picture has horizontal disturbances in light picture.
For PHASE and CLOCK adjustment best to use “dot-pattern”.
