Notes on ergonomic colour adjustment
If you select colours for the display in your application programmes, take note of the information
below.
The primary colours blue and red on a dark background do not produce the minimum required
contrast of 3:1 and are therefore not suitable for continuous text and data entry.
When using several colours for characters and background and giving the primary colours full
modulation, you can obtain very suitable colour combinations (see the following table):

For ergonomic reasons, a screen resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels is recommended. Because of the
technology used (active matrix) an LCD monitor provides a totally flicker-free picture even with a
refresh rate of 60 Hz.
i
From a technical point of view, it is preferable to set a refresh rate of above 60 Hz on an
LCD monitor with a TFT display.

Trouble shooting
Should an error occur, first check the following points. If the distortion is still not eliminated, the
monitor should, if possible, be checked on another computer.
If you are unable to solve the problem, please inform our Help Desk.
The display is too small or not centred
The monitor recognises an undefined mode (see "Technical data").
Ê
Adjust the position and the size of the display and save your settings (see "Operation of the
monitor").
No display (power indicator does not light)
Ê
Ê
Ê
Check whether the monitor is switched on.
Check whether the power cable is connected correctly on the monitor and on the computer.
Check whether the mains socket is live.

If one of the operating systems Windows for Workgroups, Windows 95/98, Windows NT,
Windows Me, Windows 2000 or OS/2 (with Windows emulation installed) is used, the
basic monitor settings can be set with the floppy disk supplied.
Detailed information is contained in the section "Basic screen adjustment with a test
pattern".
Permanently unlit or lit pixels
The standard of production techniques today cannot guarantee an absolutely fault-free monitor. A
few isolated constant lit or unlit pixels may be present. The maximum permitted number of pixels
faults is stipulated in the stringent international standard ISO 13406-2 (Class II).
Example: a 17" flat-screen monitor with a resolution of 1280 x 1024 has 1280 x 1024 = 1310720
pixels. Each pixel consists of three subpixels (red, green and blue), so there are about 4 million dots
in total.
According to ISO 13406-2 (Class II), a maximum of 6 pixels and 7 subpixels may be defective, i. e.
a total of 25 faulted dots. This corresponds to approx. 0,00062% of the entire screen surface!
The flat screen monitors from Fujitsu Siemens Computers are typically considerably better than
requirements defined in this standard.
The screen becomes darker
The background lighting has a limited lifetime. If your monitor display should become too dark, the
background lighting will have to be exchanged. Please contact our Help Desk.
Image of last screen display still visible
If you switch from a high-contrast display (for example black lines/characters on a white
background) to a picture of medium brightness, you may be able to see a faint image of the previous
display for a time. This phenomenon is not due to a monitor defect but to the technology used.
