5) Turn on the monitor first, then the PC. 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.
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.
1-3. 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

Maximum Vertical Refresh rate (Hz)
640x480 800x600 1024x768 1280x1024 1600x1200 1600x1280
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)
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

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.
· Standard For routine work and printing.
Temperature can be set from 6,500K to
10,000K, in 500K increments. (Additionally,
industry standard of 9,300K is set as default.)

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
9,300K: This is the default setting for your EIZO
Custom Mode
Color Temperature
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
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
a) Select the “Temperature” icon from the sub menu.
b) Select the temperature as desired by moving the arrow
keys in any direction.
Cutoff (Custom Mode)
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
Gain (Custom Mode)
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.)
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.
“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
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.

Off Timer
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.
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

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.
Points to check with possible solutions

their right side.
Chnage the mode of "Signal Filter" function in the
ScreenManager "Others" menu. See page 17.
13) Moiré patterns are
Reduce the moiré using the ScreenManager’s “Moiré”
adjustment menu following the procedure below.
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
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.
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)
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.

You have just purchased a TCO’99 approved and labelled product! 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.

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 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 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 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.
