A beeping sound is heard
continuously when my
PC is booting.
Solutions
Have your PC serviced if it makes a beeping sound when
booting.
Other issues
Troubleshooting
The stand generates
heat. Why is that? Does
this mean that the
product is defective?
Solutions
The upper part of the stand may become slightly hot at room
temperature. This occurs as the heat inside the stand releases
naturally. The intensity of heat you feel can vary depending on
whether the room is sealed or depending on the surrounding
temperature. This does not indicate a defect. You can use the
product without worry.
It is recommended to use the product in a location that offers
good ventilation at the back of the monitor stand.
Press any key on the keyboard or move the mouse to return
to normal operating mode.

Terminology
OSD(On Screen Display)
frequency of 85 means that the horizontal lines that make up an image are transmitted 85000
times per second. The horizontal frequency is indicated in 85kHz.
Vertical Frequency
On screen display (OSD) allows you to customize on-screen settings to optimize the picture
quality as required. You can change the screen brightness, tint, size and many other settings
using menus displayed on the screen.
One image is made of numerous horizontal lines. The vertical frequency is measured in Hz
and represents how many images can be created per second by those horizontal lines. A
vertical frequency of 60 means that an image is transmitted 60 times per second. The vertical
frequency is also called “refresh rate” and affects screen flicker.
Gamma
Resolution
The Gamma menu adjusts the grey scale that represents middle tones on the screen.
Adjusting the brightness brightens the whole screen, but adjusting Gamma only brightens the
medium brightness.
Resolution is the number of horizontal pixels and vertical pixels that form a screen. It
represents the level of display detail. A higher resolution displays a greater amount of
information on the screen and is suitable for performing multiple tasks at the same time. E.g.
A resolution of 1920 x 1080 consists of 1920 horizontal pixels (horizontal resolution) and 1080
vertical lines (vertical resolution).
Grey scale
Scale refers to levels of color intensity that show variations of color change from darker areas
to brighter areas on the screen. Changes to the screen brightness are expressed with black
and white variation, and grey scale refers to the medium area between black and white.
Changing the grey scale through Gamma adjustment will change the medium brightness on
the screen.
Plug & Play
Scanning rate
MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link)
Scanning rate, or refresh rate, refers to the frequency of screen refreshes. Screen data is
transmitted as it refreshes to display an image, although the refreshing is invisible to the
naked eye. The number of screen refreshes is called scanning rate and is measured in Hz.
A scanning rate of 60Hz means that the screen refreshes 60 times per second. The screen
scanning rate depends on the performance of the graphics cards in your PC and monitor.
The MHL feature allows you to view videos and photos (saved on a connected mobile device
that supports MHL) using the product screen.
The Plug & Play feature allows the automatic exchange of information between a monitor and
PC to produce an optimum display environment. The monitor uses VESA DDC (international
standard) to execute Plug & Play.
Horizontal Frequency
Characters or images displayed on the monitor screen consist of numerous dots (pixels).
Pixels are transmitted in horizontal lines, which are then arranged vertically to create
an image. The horizontal frequency is measured in kHz and represents how many times
horizontal lines per second are transmitted and displayed on the monitor screen. A horizontal
