Monitor Specifications
The following sections give you information about the various power management modes and pin assignments for various connectors for your monitor.
Power Management Modes
If you have VESA's DPMS compliance display card or software installed in your computer, the monitor automatically reduces its power consumption when not in
use. This is referred to as Power Save Mode. If input from keyboard, mouse or other input devices is detected by the computer, the monitor will automatically
"wake up". The following table shows the power consumption and signaling of this automatic power-saving feature: VESA Modes

Plug and Play Capability
You can install the monitor in any Plug and Play-compatible system. The monitor automatically provides the computer system with its Extended Display
Identification Data (EDID) using Display Data Channel (DDC) protocols so the system can configure itself and optimize the monitor settings. If required, the
user can select different settings, but in most cases monitor installation is automatic.
Maintenance Guidelines
Caring for Your Monitor
CAUTION: Read and follow the Safety Instructions before cleaning the monitor. CAUTION: Before cleaning the monitor, unplug the monitor from the electrical
outlet. For best practices, follow the instructions in the list below while unpacking, cleaning, or handling your monitor:
l
l
l
l
To clean your antistatic screen, lightly dampen a soft, clean cloth with water. If possible, use a special screen-cleaning tissue or solution suitable for the
antistatic coating. Do not use benzene, thinner, ammonia, abrasive cleaners, or compressed air.
Use a lightly-dampened, warm cloth to clean the plastics. Avoid using detergent of any kind as some detergents leave a milky film on the plastics. If you notice a white powder when you unpack your monitor, wipe it off with a cloth.
Handle your monitor with care as dark-colored monitors may scratch and show white scuff marks more than lighter-colored monitors. Back to Contents Page
