Getting Started
Congratulations on your purchase of a ViewSonic ® LCD display.
Important! Save the original box and all packing material for future shipping
needs.

direct sunlight or another heat source. Orient
your LCD display away from direct
sunlight to reduce glare.

care when moving it.
• Place your LCD display in a wellventilated area. Do not place anything on your
LCD display that prevents heat
dissipation.
• Ensure the area around the LCD display
is clean and free of moisture.

Using the LCD Display
Setting the Timing Mode
Setting the timing mode is important for maximizing the quality of the
screen image and minimizing eye strain. The timing mode consists of the
resolution (example 1280 x 1024) and refresh rate (or vertical frequency;
example 75 Hz). After setting the timing mode, use the OnView ® controls
to adjust the screen image.
For the best picture quality set your LCD display timing mode to:
VESA 1280 x 1024 @ 60Hz.
To set the Timing Mode:
1 Set the resolution: Right-click on the Windows desktop > Properties >
Settings > set the resolution.
2 Set the refresh rate: See your graphic card's user guide for instructions.
WARNING: Do not set the graphics card in your computer to exceed the
maximum refresh rate of 75Hz; doing so may result in permanent damage to
your LCD display .

Control
Explanation
Input Priority If multiple computers will be connected to the display,
this function can be used to select which computer has priority
Depending on the selected Input Priority, the display will do a one
time detection for available inputs when first powered on.
For example: If the Input Priority setting is D-SUB=>D-SUB2=>DVI,
then the first priority will be given to D-SUB1 when the display turns
on. If there is no video signal on D-SUB1, then the next priority will be
given to D-SUB-2, etc… In the case of only one signal being present at
the three inputs, then the display will automatically detect and display
that signal.
The Input Priority setting can also be disabled. In this case, the input
will return to the last setting when the display is first turned on. The
user will need to control all the port settings manually under this
condition. Inputs can be switched quickly by pressing the "Up" arrow
button on the front panel controls.
OSD Position allows you to move the on-screen display menus
and control screens.
OSD Timeout sets the length of time the on-screen display
screen is displayed. For example, with a “30 second” setting, if a
control is not pushed within 30 seconds, the display screen
disappears.
OSD Background On/Off allows you to turn the On-Screen Display
background On or Off.
OSD Pivot This function is used to rotate the OSD menu,
when the display is changed from Landscape to Portrait mode.
Memory Recall returns the adjustments back to factory settings
if the display is operating in a factory Preset Timing Mode listed
in the Specifications of this manual.

Troubleshooting
No power
• Make sure power button (or switch) is ON.
• Make sure A/C power cord is securely connected to the LCD display.
• Plug another electrical device (like a radio) into the power outlet to verify that
the outlet is supplying proper voltage.
Power is ON but no screen image
• Make sure the video cable supplied with the LCD display is tightly
secured to the video output port on the back of the computer. If the other end
of the video cable is not attached permanently to the LCD display,
tightly secure it to the LCD display.
• Adjust brightness and contrast.
• If you are using an Macintosh older than G3, you need a Macintosh adapter.
Wrong or abnormal colors
• If any colors (red, green, or blue) are missing, check the video cable to make
sure it is securely connected. Loose or broken pins in the cable connector
could cause an improper connection.
• Connect the LCD display to another computer.
• If you have an older graphics card, contact ViewSonic for a non-DDC
adapter.
Control buttons do not work
• Press only one button at a time.
