Getting Started
Congratulations on your purchase of a ViewSonic® ViewPanel® display.
Important! Save the original box and all packing material for future shipping
needs.
NOTE: The word “Windows” in this user guide refers to the following
Microsoft operating systems: Windows ‘95, Windows NT, Windows ‘98,

direct sunlight or another heat source. Orient
your ViewPanel display away from direct
sunlight to reduce glare.
• Always handle your ViewPanel display with
care when moving it.
• Place your ViewPanel display in a wellventilated area. Do not place anything on your
ViewPanel display that prevents heat
dissipation.
• Ensure the area around the ViewPanel display
is clean and free of moisture.
• Do not place heavy objects on the ViewPanel
display, video cable, or power cord.
• If smoke, abnormal noise, or strange odor is
present, immediately switch the ViewPanel
display off and call your dealer or ViewSonic.

Using the ViewPanel 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 60 Hz). After setting the timing mode, use the OnView® controls
to adjust the screen image.
For the best picture quality set your ViewPanel® display timing mode to:
VESA 1280 x 1024@ 60 Hz.
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 ViewPanel display.

Troubleshooting
No power
• Make sure power button (or switch) is ON.
• Make sure A/C power cord is securely connected to the DC power supply
and the power supply is firmly connected to the ViewPanel® 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 ViewPanel 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 ViewPanel display,
tightly secure it to the ViewPanel 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 ViewPanel 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.
