The monitor’s power indicator will light up (green). The monitor will warm up briefly, then display an image. Whenever finishing your operation, turn off the PC and the monitor. • If an image does not appear, refer to the “TROUBLESHOOTING” section on page 19 for an advice. 1-2. Using the AUTO-SIZING Button After connecting the monitor to the PC, first press the AUTO-SIZING button on the front panel. The AUTO-SIZING function centers the displayed image, aligning the image’s borders with respect to the monitor frame. In general, press the AUTO-SIZING button whenever changing the graphics board ro the resolution or when image size and/or position is incorrect. If further adjustment is required, adjust the picture size/position as desired using the Size/Position function in the ScreenManager. Refer to page 11. • Some signals from the graphics board may not function properly. • A solid-color screen (i.e. red, green, blue) may appear for an instant while performing the AUTO-SIZING function, while this phenomenon is not a failure. 1 INSTALLATION 9 E 1-3. Setting the resolution The following look-up table shows the maximum (Non-interlaced) vertical refresh rates for this model with regard to standard resolutions set forth by VESA. The best way to see if the monitor will work with a given resolution and rate, is to compare the vertical refresh rate of the graphics board to the monitor’s range (Refer to the graphics board manual for specifications). If the refresh rate is within the specified range of the monitor, it should operate properly. Horizontal Scan Frequency (kHz) 30-115 Maximum Vertical Refresh rate (Hz) 640x480 800x600 1024x768 1280x1024 1600x1200 1600x1280 160 160 142 107 92 86 What is Resolution? Resolution is expressed as the number of dots (pixels) displayed on the screen. A larger number of dots produces a more sharply defined (a higher-resolution) image. Note that for a given screen size the dot size decreases as the number of dots increases: a 640 x 480 (dot x line) resolution uses larger pixels than a 1024 x 768 resolution. The display size of a given font therefore varies according to the resolution. Higher resolutions allow you to display more information on the screen. 10 1 INSTALLATION 2 SCREEN ADJUSTMENT 2-1.

Adjustments and Settings • Allow the monitor to stabilize for at least 30 minutes before making image adjustments. Function Contrast/Brightness Adjusts: Contrast/Brightness · When a white text against a black background (e.g., DOS text) is used, setting the brightness at its maximum is recommended because a dark setting will result in eye strain due to high character contrast. Size Adjusts: Horizontal Image Size/Vertical Image Size 2 SCREEN ADJUSTMENT 11 Function Position Adjusts: Screen Position Side-Pin Balance/ Side-Pincushion Adjusts: Side-pin Balance/Side-pincushion Parallelogram/ Trapezoidal · Tilts: Image Sides to Sides · Expands: Top Side/Bottom Side, Shrinking the Other Side Tilt Tilts: The Image Uniformity Adjusts: Uniformity Moiré Adjusts: Adjusts: Horizontal Moiré Vertical Moiré What is moiré? Moiré refers to an interference pattern of dark wavy lines on the screen. It is not a defect, but rather an interference phenomenon caused by the relationship between the phosphor layout and the imaging signal. Moiré is often an indication of a good focus level. Moiré is particularly noticeable when using a light-gray or every-other-dot pattern background. Although moiré can not be eliminated, it can be reduced with the moiré reduction feature. 12 2 SCREEN ADJUSTMENT Function Color · Standard For routine work and printing. Temperature can be set from 6,500K to mode 10,000K, in 500K increments. (Additionally, industry standard of 9,300K is set as default.) · Custom mode For use when high precision color adjustment is necessary (i.e. when there is a need to obtain identical colors on multiple monitors* or match the display color with printout color**.) Color custom sets color temperature, allows for specific adjustments to Red, Green and Blue (R/G/B). This consists of the Cutoff and Gain functions. Refer to the instruction below for details. Others · PowerManager · Signal Filter · Menu Position · Off Timer · Video Level · Reset Refer to the page 16 for details. Color Function Standard Mode Adjusts: Color Temperature What is color temperature? Color temperature is a method to measure the white color tone, generally indicated in degrees Kelvin. At high temperatures the white tone appears somewhat blue, while at lower temperatures it appears somewhat red. Computer monitors generally give best performance at high temperature settings. 6,500K: This temperature is good for video-image display. 9,300K: This is the default setting for your EIZO monitor. 2 SCREEN ADJUSTMENT 13 E Function Custom Mode Adjusts: Color Temperature Gain Cutoff Cutoff and Gain adjustments Monitors use red, green and blue (R, G, and B) to convey color information. They use an additive method to combine different amounts of the primary colors to produce a desired color. In other words, monitors start with no light (black) and add percentages of red, green and blue to make colors. White is usually produced by adding the same amount of all three colors, where black is usually produced by adding no color. However, colors are not only determined by the balance but also the intensities of R, G, and B (how bright they are) which we call Gain, and the saturation of R, G and B (how vivid or dull they are) which we call Cutoff. · If only a quick setting is required, that is close to the desired color, but not exact, skip making any changes to the Cutoff adjustment (step 4). If a precise match is desired, adjustment of the Cutoff levels must be made. We recommend that for exact matching, use a color calibrator. Set-up Procedure (1) Set the monitor to maximum brightness and contrast. (2) Return to the “Color” menu and select the “Custom mode” setting. (3) Set the color temperature. (4) Adjust the Cutoff. (5) Adjust the Gain. (6) Select the “Save” icon and then pres the enter key. (7) Readjust the contrast in the Screen menu to get the best image clarity. Color Temperature (Custom Mode) Adjusts: Color Temperature a) Select the “Temperature” icon from the sub menu. b) Select the temperature as desired by moving the arrow keys in any direction. 14 2 SCREEN ADJUSTMENT Function Cutoff (Custom Mode) Adjusts: Cutoff Cutoff The Cutoff adjustment is the most powerful adjustment. It alters the starting point (the black level) and the ending point (the white level). If the Cutoff level for color is raised or lowered, black, white, and all levels between are raised or lowered by the same degree. Gain (Custom Mode) Adjusts: Gain Gain The Gain adjustment has no effect on the starting point (the black level). It changes only the ending point (the white level). The Gain adjustment is used to fine tune the whites and light grays to a good balance. · If an inappropriate adjustment is made, corrections can be made by repeating the above procedure starting from Step 3 (temperature setting). · The values shown in percentages (%) for both the Cutoff and Gain adjustments represent the current level within the specific adjustment only. They are available only as a reference tool. (To create a uniform white or black screen, the percentages for each will probably not be the same.) 2 SCREEN ADJUSTMENT 15 E Others Function VESA DPMS The PowerManager feature automatically reduces the monitor’s power consumption during idle periods. The EIZO PowerManager functions comply with the VESA DPMS standard. · Do your part to conserve energy, turn off the monitor when your finished using it. Complete energy use can only be stopped by disconnecting the monitor from the power supply. · When the monitor is in a power saving mode, the optional EIZO i·Sound speaker unit will turn off. · Off Timer will work while PowerManager is active, but there will be no advance notice before the monitor's power switches off. What is VESA DPMS? The acronym VESA stands for “Video Electronics Standards Association,” and DPMS stands for “Display Power Management Signaling.” DPMS is a communication standard that PCs and graphics boards use to implement power savings at the monitor side. What is ENERGY STAR? “ENERGY STAR” is a set of power saving guidelines issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The guidelines apply to PC systems and peripherals. As an ENERGY STAR® Partner, Eizo Nanao Corporation has determined that this product meets the ENERGY STAR® guidelines for energy efficiency. Set-up Procedure 1) First, make the appropriate settings for the PC. 2) Select VESA DPMS icon in the ScreenManager’s PowerManager menu. Select “On”. Power saving method of VESA DPMS and the monitor VESA DPMS utilizes four signals: ON, STAND-BY, SUSPEND, and OFF. The monitor detects these signals from the graphics board and executes powersaving accordingly, as shown in the table below. Signal ON STAND-BY SUSPEND OFF 16 2 SCREEN ADJUSTMENT Screen Operation Blank Blank (Mode 1) Blank (Mode 2) LED Green Green Flashing green Yellow Power consumption 120 W (normal) 80% of normal less than 10 W less than 3 W Function Off Timer E What is Off Timer? The Off Timer function allows the user to set the time in which the monitor will be in operation, called the “On Period” and automatically shifts the operation into the “Off Timer Mode” when the set “On Period” expires. The energy consumption of the monitor in the “Off Timer Mode” is as low as the one of the monitor in “PowerManager Mode 2” although no setting PC to operate the Off Timer function is required. Set-up Procedure 1) Select the “Off Timer” icon. Select “Enable” and press the enter key. 2) Press the right/left key to adjust how long (0 to 23 hours) the monitor should be in the “On Period”. Choosing 0 disables the “Off Timer”. Advance notice (LED flashing green) will be given 15 minutes before the monitor automatically enters the “Off Timer Mode”. To Delay Entering the “Off Timer Mode” To delay entering the “Off Timer Mode”, press any keys on the front panel located to the left of the power switch during the “Advance notice Mode”. The monitor will continue to operate for an additional 90 minutes. There will be another advance notice for 15 minutes as described. Delayed entrance into the “Off Timer Mode” can be extended as many times as desired. Function Signal Filter Video Level This monitor provides signal filter adjustments according to the characteristics of each graphics board for displaying the image properly. If the characteristics of the graphics board does not match those of the monitor, the characters and images displayed may have a slight shadow on their right side (refer to figure on the left). If these phenomenon is noticeable, use the “Signal Filter” function. Select from mode 1 or mode 2, whichever displays the image better. adjusts: Video Level Set the video level to adapt the output level of the computer or the graphics board.

Problems Points to check with possible solutions 1) Indicator status: OFF Check that the power cord is correctly connected. 2) Indicator status: GREEN Check brightness and contrast settings. Minimum settings will cause screen to be blank. 3) Indicator status: GREEN (flashing) Try pressing a key on the keyboard, or clicking the mouse. (The monitor may be in a power saving mode.) 4) Indicator status: YELLOW Try pressing a key on the keyboard, or clicking the mouse. (The monitor may be in a power saving mode.) 5) Indicator status: YELLOW (flashing) Try pressing any keys on the front panel, or switch the monitor off and then on. (The monitor may be in “Off Timer Mode”.) If the problem persists, switch off the monitor power for a few minutes, then switch it back on and try again. 6) Following message appears. Check that the PC is switched ON. Check that the signal cable is properly connected to the graphics board or PC. Check that the graphics board is correctly inserted in the PC. 7) Following message appears. (Example) Use the graphics board’s utility software to change the frequency setting. (Refer to the manual of the graphics board.) • Whenever an error signal message appears, the signal frequency will be displayed in red. • Error messages shown above will remain on the screen for 30 seconds. An error message may not appear at all if the signal frequency is extremely high or extremely low. 8) The screen is partially dark. The CRT is not warmed up. Allow 30 minutes for the monitor to stabilize. This problem may be caused by the earth's magnetism. Adjust the uniformity in the ScreenManager's "Screen" menu. See page 12. 3 TROUBLESHOOTING 19 E Problems 9) The entire screen appears too dark or bright. Points to check with possible solutions Adjust the contrast and brightness using the ScreenManager. See page 11. Output level from the computer may not conform the monitor. Please set the video level using the ScreenManager. See page 17. Some signal timing can be the cause of this problem. To correct this, turn off the monitor, then hold down the AUTO-SIZING button and “down” arrow key while turning on the monitor again. This will change the signal timing and brighten the screen. If the above operation si repeated the screen becomes dark again. 10) The screen is tilted/ distorted. Adjust with the ScreenManager's tilt and distortion correcting function until tilt/distorting seems unnoticeable. See page 11. Check to see if there are any nearby interfering electronic devices such as another monitor, an electric motor, or a speaker (other than an optional EIZO i·Sound speaker unit.) If so, move the device or move the monitor. It is sometimes possible to correct distortion and tilting by reorienting the monitor. 11) The image vibrates on the screen. Use of the “Moiré” adjustment may cause a slight. vibration. To eliminate the vibration, set the adjustment level to lower percentage or 0%. See page 12. Check that the signal cable is properly connected to the graphics board or PC. Check that the graphics board is correctly mounted in the PC. The monitor may be located close to a device that is generating a magnetic field. Such devices include speakers (other than the EIZO optional i·Sound speaker), electric motors, high-voltage cables, and other monitors. It may be solved by switching off or moving the interfering device, or by relocating the monitor. If the volume level of the EIZO optional i·Sound speaker is too high, it may, in some cases, cause a slight vibration. To eliminate, turn down the volume of the speaker. · An unstable signal from the graphics board may be the cause of the above problem when using the monitor with a high resolution or in a high refresh mode. (The video signal from the graphics board might be made irregular due to the use of a high speed dot clock.) Change the resolution or the refresh rate to another setting. 20 3 TROUBLESHOOTING Problems Points to check with possible solutions 12) The characters and images have a slight shadow on their right side. Chnage the mode of "Signal Filter" function in the ScreenManager "Others" menu. See page 17. 13) Moiré patterns are distracting. Reduce the moiré using the ScreenManager’s “Moiré” adjustment menu following the procedure below. E This may be solved by changing the refresh rate. 1) Set the desktop to an every-other-dot pattern so that moiré will be visible. 2) Go to the ScreenManager’s “Moiré” menu and adjust so that moiré becomes almost unnoticeable. See page 12. 3) Change to a different desktop background to reduce moiré even further. Change the horizontal and vertical dimensions of the desplay area. Change the selected desktop or wallpaper pattern to any solid color pattern. For detailed information on how to change these patterns, refer to the documentation for the PC and operating system. 14)The image is flickering. Flicker will occur with interlaced scanning, or non-interlaced scanning with a low refresh rate. All EIZO monitors are capable of reproducing high refresh rates for non-interlaced scanning. If a problem occurs when using a non-interlaced signal, try adjusting the graphics board to increase the refresh rate (if possible). Refer to the graphics board manual for information. Flicker The term “flicker” refers to noticeable shimmering that occurs when the image on the screen is redrawn (“refreshed”) too slowly. A refresh rate of 80 Hz means the image is redrawn 80 times per second. Most people will notice flicker at image refresh rates as high as 60 or 70 Hz, whereas refresh rates of 72 Hz or above usually is not noticeable. Flicker is known to be the cause of visual fatigue. 15)• The entire screen appears bluish or reddish. The CRT is not warmed up. Allow 30 minutes for the monitor to stabilize. • Color purity is not uniform. • Misconvergence of colors. (red, green, blue) 3 TROUBLESHOOTING 21 Explanation of the Characteristics of CRTs When the monitor is not fully warmed up, the screen may look slightly colored, e.g. reddish or bluish. This phenomenon is due to the unstableness of the electron gun during its warm-up period. Please wait for about 30 minutes until the monitor stabilizes in order to gain its proper color. Problems 16)• Control Pad “ENTER key” does not operate. • AUTO-SIZING button does not operate. 22 3 TROUBLESHOOTING Points to check with possible solutions The Adjustment Lock is probably on. To unlock: switch off the monitor power, then hold down the down arrow key of the control pad and switch the monitor back on. See page 18. 4 CLEANING WARNING E • Keep liquids away from the monitor. Spillage into the cabinet may result in fire, electric shock, or equipment damage. If an object or liquid falls/spills into the cabinet, unplug the monitor immediately. Have the unit checked by a qualified service engineer before using it again. Using the monitor in this condition could cause serious injury or equipment damage. CAUTION • To ensure safety, always unplug the monitor before cleaning it. Failure to do so may result in electric shock. • Periodically clean the area around the plug. Buildup of dust, water, or oil on the plug may result in fire. • Never use thinner, benzene, alcohol (ethanol, methanol, or isopropyl alcohol), abrasive cleaners, or other strong solvents, as these may cause damage to the cabinet or CRT. Periodic cleaning is recommended to keep the monitor looking new and to prolong its operational lifetime. Clean the cabinet and CRT areas as follows: Cabinet To remove stains, wipe the cabinet with a soft, lightly moistened cloth using a mild detergent. Do not spray wax or cleaner directly onto the cabinet. CRT Surface The CRT surface can be cleaned with a soft cloth, such as cotton or lens paper.

Your choice has provided you with a product developed for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to reducing the burden on the environment and also to the further development of environmentally adapted electronics products. Why do we have environmentally labelled computers? In many countries, environmental labelling has become an established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and services to the environment. The main problem, as far as computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful substances are used both in the products and during their manufacture. Since it is not so far possible to satisfactorily recycle the majority of electronics equipment, most of these potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter nature. There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints of both the work (internal) and natural (external) environments. Since all methods of electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (e.g. acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste), it is vital to save energy. Electronics equipment in offices is often left running continuously and thereby consumes a lot of energy. What does labelling involve? This product meets the requirements for the TCO’99 scheme which provides for international and environmental labelling of personal computers. The labelling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), Svenska Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and Statens Energimyndighet (The Swedish National Energy Administration). Approval requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, emission of electric and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety. The environmental demands impose restrictions on the presence and use of heavy metals, brominated and chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among other things. The product must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental policy which must be adhered to in each country where the company implements its operational policy. The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or display, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce its power consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time to reactivate the computer shall be reasonable for the user. Labelled products must meet strict environmental demands, for example, in respect of the reduction of electric and magnetic fields, physical and visual ergonomics and good usability. Below you will find a brief summary of the environmental requirements met by this product. The complete environmental criteria document may be ordered from: TCO Development SE-114 94 Stockholm, Sweden Fax: +46 8 782 92 07 Email (Internet): [email protected] Current information regarding TCO’99 approved and labelled products may also be obtained via the Internet, using the address: http://www.tco-info.com/ Environmental requirements Flame retardants Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and housings. Their purpose is to prevent, or at least to delay the spread of fire. Up to 30% of the plastic in a computer casing can consist of flame retardant substances. Most flame retardants contain bromine or chloride, and those flame retardants are chemically related to another group of environmental toxins, PCBs. Both the flame retardants containing bromine or chloride and the PCBs are suspected of giving rise to severe health effects, including reproductive damage in fisheating birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative* processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that disturbances in foetus development may occur. The relevant TCO’99 demand requires that plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not contain flame retardants with organically bound bromine or chlorine. Flame retardants are allowed in the printed circuit boards since no substitutes are available. Cadmium** Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the colour-generating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO’99 requirement states that batteries, the colour-generating layers of display screens and the electrical or electronics components must not contain any cadmium. Mercury** Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. It damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO’99 requirement states that batteries may not contain any mercury. It also demands that mercury is not present in any of the electrical or electronics components associated with the labelled unit. CFCs (freons) The relevant TCO’99 requirement states that neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the manufacture and assembly of the product. CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in the stratosphere, causing increased reception on earth of ultraviolet light with e.g. increased risks of skin cancer (malignant melanoma) as a consequence. Lead** Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and capacitors. Lead damages the nervous system and in higher doses, causes lead poisoning. The relevant TCO’99 requirement permits the inclusion of lead since no replacement has yet been developed.
