Troubleshooting
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
The image is blurred:
Read the chapter, Installation/Adjustment and then select the correct resolution, refresh
rate and make adjustments based on these instructions.
Do you use a VGA extension cable?
Remove the extension cable for the test. Is the image now in focus? If not, optimize the
image working on the description in the chapter, Installation/Adjustment. It is normal
for blurring to occur due to conduction losses in extension cables. You can minimize
these losses by using an extension cable with better conduction quality or with a builtin booster.
Does the blurring only occur at resolutions lower than the native (maximum) resolution?
Read the chapter Installation/Adjustment. Select the native resolution.
Pixel errors can be seen:
One of several pixels are permanently black, one or more pixels are permanently white,
one or more pixels are permanently red, green, blue or another colour.
Read the chapter Pixel error rates.
The image has a faulty colour appearance:
It has a yellow, blue or pink appearance.
On the monitor press the “Enter” button and use the “<”or “>”keys to move to the
“information” menu. Press “Enter” to “Recall” the preset mode. If the image is still not
correct and the OSD also has a fault colour appearance, then one of the three primary
colours is missing in the signal input. Now check the VGA cable contacts. If any pins
are bent or broken off, then contact your dealer or read the chapter, Additional Help,
Repairs & Service.
No image can be seen:
Is the prompt on the display illuminated in green?
If the LED is illuminated in green, then press the “Exit” button on the monitor to
access the On Screen Display. If the message “Not supported Mode” appears there,
read the chapter Installation/Adjustment.
Is the prompt on the display illuminated in orange?
If the LED is illuminated in orange, then the power management mode is active. Press
a button on the computer keyboard or move the mouse. If that does not help, then
check the VGA cable contacts. If any pins are bent or broken off, then contact your
dealer or read the chapter, Additional Help, Repairs & Service.
English 39
Benq LCD Color Monitor User's Guide
Is the prompt on the display not illuminated at all?
Check the power supply mains socket, the external power supply and the mains
switch.
The image is or distorted, flashes or flickers:
Read the chapter, Installation/Adjustment and then select the correct resolution, refresh
rate and make adjustments based on these instructions.

hModes, which are not listed in the above table, may not be supported. For an optimal picture
it is recommended to choose a mode listed in the table.
hYou have 12 available modes compatible with Windows.
hIt can happen that the image is disrupted. This can occur as a result of a signal frequency from
the VGA card, which does not correspond with the usual standard. This is not, however, an
error. You can improve this situation by altering an automatic setting or by manually changing
the phase setting and the pixel frequency from the “Geometry” menu.
hIf you switch off the monitor, interference lines can occur on your screen. But do not be concerned about this, as it is normal.
hTo extend the service life of the product, we recommend that you use your computer's
power management function.
