developed by Samsung Electronics in association with Korea Electronics &
Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI).
This is only available for Samsung monitors and ensures that the color of the images on the
monitor is the same as the color of the the printed or scanned images.
For more information, refer to Help (F1) in the software program.

Troubleshooting
Overview
What is MagicTune™?
Monitor performance can vary due to the graphics card, host computer lighting conditions and other
environmental factors. In order to get the best image on a monitor requires you to adjust it for your unique
setting. Unfortunately, the manual controls available to tune the image often prove to be challenging. Proper
adjustment (tuning) requires an easy to use program that goes through a step-by-step process to obtain the best
overall picture quality.
In most cases even simple adjustments to Brightness, or Contrast require navigation of the multi-level, on-screen
display (OSD) menus that are not easy to understand. Furthermore, there is no feedback to assist in correctly
setting the controls of the monitor. MagicTune™ is a software utility that guides you through the tuning process
with easy to understand instructions and back ground patterns designed for each monitor control. The display
settings for each user can be saved, providing an easy way to select display characteristics in a multi-user
environme or having a single user have multiple defined presets based on content and ambient lighting.
Basic Functionality
MagicTune™ is a software utility that allows monitor adjustment and color tuning using the Display Data
Channel Command Interface (DDC/CI) protocol. All adjustments to the display are controlled via software
to eliminate the need to use the monitor on-screen display (OSD).
MagicTune™ supports Windows™ 98 SE, Me, 2000, XP Home, and XP Professional.
It is recommended using MagicTune™ in Windows™ 2000 or later.
MagicTune™ allows for quick accurate tuning of the display with the ability to easily save and use monitor
configurations that are best suited for you.
OSD Mode
The OSD mode allows easy adjustment of monitor settings without taking pre-defined steps. You can access the
desired menu item to set with ease.

Terms
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 the Vertical Frequency or
Refresh Rate. Unit: Hz
Example: If the same light repeats itself 60 times per second, this is regarded as 60 Hz.
Horizontal Frequency
The time to scan one line connecting the right edge to the left edge of the screen horizontally
is called the 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 sequentially is called the
Non-Interlace 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 the
'resolution'. This number shows the accuracy of the display. A 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).
Green
The MagicGreen CDT monitor has adopted a Well-Being CDT that is coated with a Vital &
Pure coating, which radiates far infrared and anion.
Vital Coating Radiates far infrared and anion by applying a specialized ceramic on the
surface of the CDT funnel.

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 the Vertical Frequency or
Refresh Rate. Unit: Hz
Example: If the same light repeats itself 60 times per second, this is regarded as 60 Hz.
Horizontal Frequency
The time to scan one line connecting the right edge to the left edge of the screen horizontally
is called the 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 sequentially is called the
Non-Interlace 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 the
'resolution'. This number shows the accuracy of the display. A 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).
MagicGreen
The MagicGreen CDT monitor has adopted a Well-Being CDT that is coated with a Vital &
Pure coating, which radiates far infrared and anion.
Vital Coating Radiates far infrared and anion by applying a specialized ceramic on the
surface of the CDT funnel.

PRODUCT INFORMATION (Image Retention Free)
LCD Monitors and TVs may have an image retention when switching from one image to another
especially after displaying a stationary image for a long time.
This guide is to demonstrate a correct usage of LCD products in order to protect them from
Image retention.
Warranty
Warranty does not cover any damage caused by image retention.
Burn-in is not covered by the warranty.
What is Image retention ?
During normal operation of a LCD panel, pixel image retention doesn't occur. However,
if the same image is displayed for a long time, a slight difference in electric charge
accumulates between the two electrodes which encase the liquid crystal. This may
cause the liquid crystal to build up in a certain areas of the display. Thus, the previous
image is retained when switching to a new video image. All display products, including
LCD,are subject to image retention. This is not a product defect.
Please follow the suggestions below to protect your LCD from image retention
Power Off, Screen Saver, or Power Save Mode
Ex)
Turn the power off when using a stationary pattern.
- Turn the power off for 4 hours after 24 hours in use
- Turn the power off for 2 hours after 12 hours in use
Use a Screen saver if possible
- Screen saver in one color or a moving image is recommended.
Set the Monitor to power off with the PC Display Properties Power Scheme.

Suggestions for specific applications
Ex) Airports, Transit Stations, Stock Markets, Banks, and Controlling Systems
We recommend that you follow set up of your display system program as below:
Display Information together with Logo or Moving image cycle.
Ex) Cycle : Display Information for 1 hour followed by a
Display Logo or moving image for 1 minute.
Change the Color Information periodically (Use 2 different colors).
Ex) Rotate the Color Information with 2 colors every 30 minutes.
Avoid using a combination of characters and background color with large
difference in luminance.
Avoid using Grey colors, which can cause Image retention easily.
Avoid: Colors with big difference in luminance (Black & White, Grey)
Ex)
z
Recommended settings: Bright colors with little difference in luminance
- Change the characters color and background color every 30 minutes
Ex)
z
- Every 30 minutes, change the characters with movement.
Ex)
The best way to protect your monitor from Image retention is to set your PC or
System to operate a Screen Saver program when you are not using it.
Image retention may not occur when a LCD panel is operated under normal conditions.
Normal conditions are defined as continuously changing video patterns. When the LCD
panel is operated for a long time with a fixed pattern (-over 12 hours-), there may be
slight difference in voltage between electrodes that work the liquid crystal (LC) in a
pixel. The voltage difference between electrodes increases with time, forcing the liquid
crystal to lean. When this occurs, the previous image may be seen when the pattern is
changed.
To prevent this, the accumulated voltage difference must be decreased.
Our LCD Monitor satisfies ISO13406-2 Pixel fault Class II
