properly.
Self-Test Feature Check
1. Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer.
.
3. Turn on the monitor.
If the monitor is functioning properly, you will see a box with a border and text inside as
shown in the following illustration:
The three boxes inside the border are red, green and blue.
Failure of any of the boxes to appear indicates a problem with your monitor.
This box also appears during normal operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or damaged.
4. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the monitor.
If your monitor screen remains blank after using the previous procedure,
check your video controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.

Werning Messages
If there is something wrong with the input signal, a message appears on the screen or the screen goes blank
although the power indicator LED is still on. The message may indicate that the monitor is out of scan range
or that you need to check the signal cable.
Environment
The location and the position of the monitor may influence the quality and other features of the monitor.
1. If there are any woofer speakers near the monitor, unplug and relocate the woofer to another room.
2. Remove all electronic devices such as radios, fans, clocks and telephones that are within 3 feet (one
meter) of the monitor.
Useful Tips
.
A monitor recreates visual signals received from the PC. Therefore, if there is trouble with the PC
or the video card, this can cause the monitor to become blank, have poor coloring, noise, Video
mode not supported, etc. In this case, first check the source of the problem, and then contact a
service center or your dealer.
.
Judging the monitor's working condition
If there is no image on the screen or an "Video mode not supported" message comes up,
disconnect the cable from the computer while the monitor is still powered on.
. If there is a message coming up on the screen or if the screen goes white, this means the
monitor is in working condition.
. In this case, check the computer for trouble.

Dot Pitch
The image on a monitor is composed of red, green and blue dots. The closer the dots, the higher
the resolution. The distance between two dots of the same color is called the 'Dot Pitch'. Unit: mm
•
Vertical Frequency
The screen must be redrawn several times per second in order to create and display an image for
the user. The frequency of this repetition per second is called Vertical Frequency or Refresh Rate.
Unit: Hz
Example: If the same light repeats itself 60 times per second, this is regarded as 60 Hz. In this case,
flickering of the screen can be detected. To avoid this problem, there is a Flicker-free Mode using a
vertical frequency over 70 Hz.
•
Horizontal Frequency
The time to scan one line connecting the right edge to the left edge of the screen horizontally is
called Horizontal Cycle. The inverse number of the Horizontal Cycle is called Horizontal Frequency.
Unit: kHz
•
Interlace and Non-Interlace Methods
Showing the horizontal lines of the screen from the top to the bottom in order is called the NonInterlace method while showing odd lines and then even lines in turn is called the Interlace method.
The Non-Interlace method is used for the majority of monitors to ensure a clear image. The Interlace
method is the same as that used in TVs.
•
Plug & Play
This is a function that provides the best quality screen for the user by allowing the computer and the
monitor to exchange information automatically. This monitor follows the international standard
VESA DDC for the Plug & Play function.
•
Resolution
The number of horizontal and vertical dots used to compose the screen image is called 'resolution'.
This number shows the accuracy of the display. High resolution is good for performing multiple tasks
as more image information can be shown on the screen.
Example: If the resolution is 1024 X 768, this means the screen is composed of 1024 horizontal
dots (horizontal resolution) and 768 vertical lines (vertical resolution).

TCO'95-Ecological requirements for personal computers (TCO applied model only)
AB general requirements
AB2 Written Eco-document acompanying the products
Congratulations! You have just purchased a TCO'95 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 to the further development of environmentally-adapted electronic
products.
Why do we have environmentally-labelled monitors?
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 monitors and other
electronic equipment are concerned is that environmentally harmful substances are used both in the products
and during their manufacture. Since it has not been possible so far for the majority of electronic equipment to
be recycled in a satisfactory way, most of these potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter Nature.
There are also other characteristics of a monitor, such as energy consumption levels, that are important from
both the working and natural environment viewpoints. Since all types of conventional electricity generation
have a negative effect on the environment (acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste, etc.)
it is vital to conserve energy. Electronic equipment in offices consumes an enormous amount of energy, since
it is often routinely left running continuously.
What does labelling involve?
This product meets the requirements for the TCO'95 scheme, which provides for international environmental
labelling of monitors. The labelling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the TCO (The Swedish
Confederation of Professional Employees), Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature
Conservation) and NUTEK (The National Board for Industrial and Technical Development in Sweden).
The requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, emission of electrical and
magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety.
The environmental demands concern among other things restrictions on the presence and use of heavy
metals, brominated and chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons), and chlorinated solvents. The product
must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental plan, which must
be adhered to in each country where the company conducts its operations policy. The energy requirements
include a demand that the monitor 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 monitor 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, along with physical and visual ergonomics and good usability.

Environmental Requirements
Brominated flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and housings. In
turn, they delay the spread of fire. Up to thirty percent of the plastic in a computer casing can consist of flame
retardant substances. These are related to another group of environmental toxins, PCBs, which are
suspected to give rise to similar harm, including reproductive damage in fish eating birds and mammals, due
to the bioaccumulative processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear
that disturbances in foetus development may occur. TCO'95 demand requires that plastic components
weighing more than 25 grams must not contain organically bound chlorine and bromine.
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. TCO'95 requirement Permits the inclusion of lead since
no replacement has yet been developed.
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. TCO'95 requirement states that
batteries may not contain more than 25 ppm (parts per million) of cadmium. The colour-generating layers of
display screens must not contain any cadmium.
Mercury
Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. Mercury damages the nervous system and is
toxic in high doses. TCO'95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more than 25 ppm (parts per
million) of mercury. It also demands that no mercury is present in any of the electrical or electronics
components concerned with the display unit.
CFCs (freons)
.
CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards and in the manufacturing of expanded
foam for packaging. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in the stratosphere,
causing increased reception on Earth of ultraviolet light with consequent increased risks of skin cancer
(malignant melanoma).
The relevant TCO'95 requirement: Neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the
manufacturing of the product or its packaging.

TCO'99-Ecological requirements for personal computers (TCO applied model only)
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.
This product meets the requirements for the TCO'99 scheme which provides for an international
environmental and quality labelling 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),
Statens Energimyndighet(The Swedish National Energy Administration) and SEMKO AB.
The requirements cover a wide range of issuse: environment, ergonomics, usability, reduction of electric and
magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical safety.
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?
The environmental demands has been developed by Svenska Naturskyddsforeningen
(The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation). These 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.

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 relevant 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 colour-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. There is however one exception. Mercury is, for the time being, permitted in the back light
system of flat panel monitors as today there is no commercially available alternative. TCO aims on removing
this exception when a Mercury free alternative is available.
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.
