Manufacturer’s notes
Energy Star
The Fujitsu Siemens LCD colour monitor C384FA-M is designed to
conserve electricity by dropping to less than 5 W when it goes into
standby, suspend and OFF mode. With this new power management the
C384FA-M qualifies for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA)

If your computer has a power management function (energy-saving mode), you should
read the "Notes on power management" of the monitor in this chapter.
Notes on power management
If your computer is equipped with power management, the monitor can support this function fully.
Here the monitor does not distinguish between the individual energy-saving modes of the computer
(standby mode, suspend mode and OFF mode), as it is capable of immediately switching into the
mode with the highest energy-saving effect.

If your computer detects inactivity (no input) it sends an appropriate signal to the monitor to reduce
the power consumption (energy-saving mode). The power indicator of the monitor changes colour to
indicate the status change.
Once an input is made at the computer the screen contents are redrawn and full power is restored.
For detailed information on how energy-saving mode operates refer to the Operating Manual or
Technical Manual of your computer.
i
When the monitor is switched to the energy-saving mode by the power management
system a power consumption of up to 5 W is maintained to feed the circuit for redrawing
the screen contents.
To completely switch off the power consumption, pull the plug of the monitor power cable
out of the mains outlet.
Changing the monitor settings
When putting the monitor into operation for the first time, the screen display should be optimally
adapted to the screen controller used and adjusted in accordance with your needs.
Basic monitor settings with the floppy disk supplied

Notes on ergonomic colour adjustment
If you select colours for the display in your application programmes, take note of the information
below.
The primary colours blue and red on a dark background do not produce the minimum required
contrast of 3:1 and are therefore not suitable for continuous text and data entry.
When using several colours for characters and background and giving the primary colours full
modulation, you can obtain very suitable colour combinations (see the following table):

VESA-DDC-compatible VGA interface
Your monitor is equipped with a VESA-DDC-compatible VGA interface. VESA-DDC (Video
Electronics Standard Association, Display Data Channel) is used as the communications interface
between the monitor and the computer. If your computer is equipped with a VESA-DDC-compatible
VGA interface, it can automatically read the data for ensuring optimum operation from your monitor
and select the appropriate settings.

Error handling
Should an error occur, first check the following points. If the distortion is still not eliminated, the
monitor should, if possible, be checked on another computer and/or with another data cable.
If you cannot solve the problem, contact our customer service centre.
The display is too small or not centred
The monitor recognises an undefined mode (see "Technical data").
Ê
Adjust the position and the size of the display and save your settings (see " Operation of the
monitor").
No display (power indicator does not light)
Ê
Ê
Ê
Check whether the ON/OFF switch on the monitor is switched on.
Check whether the power cable is correctly connected.
Check whether the mains socket is live.

Press any key on the computer keyboard – the computer may be in energy saving mode.
Check whether the data cable for the monitor is correctly attached to the monitor and the
monitor port on the computer.
Alter the brightness and/or contrast until you get a picture.
Picture disturbances (vertical and horizontal lines, picture noise)
Ê
Ê
First adjust the Clock function to eliminate vertical bars.
Then adjust the Phase function to eliminate picture noise or horizontal lines.

If one of the operating systems Windows for Workgroups, Windows 95/98, Windows NT
or OS/2 (with Windows emulation installed) is used, the monitor can be adjusted with the
floppy disk supplied.
Permanently unlit or lit pixels
The standard of production techniques today cannot guarantee an absolutely fault-free screen
display. A few isolated constant lit or unlit pixels may be present. The maximum permitted number
of pixels faults is stipulated in the stringent international standard ISO 13406-2 (Class II).
Example: a 15" flat-screen monitor with a resolution of 1024 x 768 has 1024 x 768 = 786432 pixels.
Each pixel consists of three subpixels (red, green and blue), so there are about 2.4 million dots in
total.
According to ISO 13406-2 (Class II), a maximum of 4 pixels and 5 subpixels may be defective, i. e.
a total of 17 faulted dots. This corresponds to approx. 0.002 % of the entire screen surface!
The flat screen monitors from Fujitsu Siemens Computers are typically considerably better than
requirements defined in this standard.
The screen becomes darker
The background lighting has a limited lifetime. If your monitor display should become too dark, the
background lighting will have to be exchanged. Please contact our customer service centre.
No sound output
In order for the multimedia functions to be operable, a sound card (audio controller) must be
installed in your computer and properly configured.
Ê
Ê
Check whether the audio cable is correctly connected.
Increase the volume.
