Congratulations on purchasing your BenQ V32S/DV3251/DV3253 LCD Display. You have a
state-of-the-art flat widescreen digital LCD display which should provide you with years of
viewing pleasure.
Please take a few minutes to read these quick start instructions through before installing and
using the display.
What’s in the Quick Start Guide?

All LCD screens have a very thin protective layer of glass which is liable to marking or
scratching, and cracking if struck or pressured. The liquid crystal substrate is also liable to
damage under excessive force or extreme temperatures. Please handle with care.
3. Select and prepare the installation location
In order to prevent potential dangers and prolong the service life of the display, please observe
the following points when installing, operating and cleaning the display.
Do NOT place the display on an
uneven, sloping or unstable surface
where it may fall and cause damage to
itself or others.
If recessed into a wall opening, you
must leave at least 50–100mm free
space both top and bottom for
ventilation.
Do NOT place the display near water,
like a spa or pool, or in a position
which will allow the splashing or
spraying of water onto the display, like
in front of an open window where rain
water may enter.
If wall mounting, allow at least 30mm
space on top for attaching the display to
the wall bracket. It slides in and down
onto the bracket from above.
Do NOT place the display near or
above sources of heat, such as radiators,
heaters, fuel stoves and other heatgenerating items (including audio
amplifiers).
Do NOT cover or block the vents and
openings whilst the display is switched
on.
Do NOT place the display in direct sun
or where direct sun or spot lighting will
shine onto the display, as the heat may
damage the display and the bright light
will make viewing the display more
difficult than necessary.
Do NOT place the display in an
enclosed place without allowing for
ventilation.
If wall mounting, have a suitable
qualified and experienced tradesperson
mount it safely. Ensure that the
mounting bracket (optional accessory)
is securely screw fixed to the wall
structure, and not just the wall render,
lining or cladding. Do not glue the
bracket to the wall. Use only a
recommended BenQ TV wall bracket
for this model display. Ensure the
bracket is level horizontally.
Once all considerations and precautions have been made, position the display where most
suitable.

6. Activate the remote control
English
Locate the remote control and batteries from the packaging, and unwrap them.
Turn the remote control end up to reveal its base, and open the
lid of the battery compartment by using a small coin or
similarly curved object to rotate the slot 90° anticlockwise.
The lid is spring loaded and will popup and come loose from
the remote control body.
Insert the batteries (supplied) ensuring that the positive and
negative marked battery terminals match the (+) and (-)
marks in the battery compartment.
Note that these batteries are provided for your convenience so
that you can operate the display straight away. You should
replace them as soon as possible.
Refit the lid of the battery compartment by inserting the hinge
into the recess at one edge and levering the lid down into
position with the thumb of the hand holding the remote
control body.
Whilst holding the lid in place in this manner, use your other
hand and a small coin or similarly shaped object to rotate the
locking slot 90° clockwise locking the lid in place.
Remote control usage tips
Point and aim the top front of the Remote Control directly at the display when pressing the
buttons. Do not cover the sensor window on the front of the display (beside the power indicator
lamp), or place objects in front of it which will block the direct line-of-sight between the Remote
Control and the display sensor window.
• Do not let the remote control become wet, or place it in humid environments (like bathrooms.)
• If the remote control sensor window on the display is in direct sunlight or strong light, the
remote control may not operate properly. In this situation, change the light source or readjust
the angle of your display, or operate the remote control from a location closer to the remote
control sensor window on the display.

Care and cleaning information
•
•
•
•
•
Always turn off the display by pressing the power button before cleaning.
Do NOT use cream, liquid, aerosol or spray cleaners. Use only a slightly damp well wrungout (drip-free) and lint-free, clean soft cloth and lightly wipe the display.
If necessary, use a pH-neutral liquid dish-washing detergent diluted with water on a
separate clean lint-free cloth to remove oil or grease marks. Wipe over again with a clean
dry lint-free cloth to remove any smear marks.
Under close examination and in certain circumstances, you may notice that a few nonactive pixels appear on the screen as a fixed point of colour. Please note that this does not
affect the performance of your product as it is usually not visible at normal viewing
distances.
If the display is not going to be used for an extended period of time (like when you’re going
away for holidays), it should be switched off and unplugged from the wall outlet. You
should also consider removing the batteries from the remote control (as they may leak).

Introduction
This booklet is divided into two sections: the Quick Start Guide; and the User’s Manual.
For details of the Quick Start Guide, see "1. Please read these instructions" on page 2.
This is section 2, the User's Manual which describes how to customise the display settings so that
you can gain the best viewing experience possible to suit your preferences and viewing
environment. This section details the features and functions of the display and the remote
control, describes how to connect to other devices, and provides product specifications and
troubleshooting information for your further assistance.
What do I connect?
This LCD display is a state-of-the-art flat widescreen digital display device. It has a built-in
analog TV tuner which can be used to view standard definition analog television (TV or ATV),
cable television (CATV), or radio frequency (RF) modulated video through its coaxial TV
Antenna input socket.
However, the high quality of a widescreen LCD display isn’t realized through analog TV. The
highest possible quality display is only possible from high definition digital video sources like
High Definition TV (HDTV), High Definition DVD (HVD).
Input options
This display supports the simultaneous connection of several different types of TV, Video and
Graphic sources, and permits you to select whichever one of the available sources you wish to
view at any time. You use the Input
button on the remote control or the display to cycle
through and select an input source.
There are multiple sockets on the rear and side of the display for TV, Video, and Graphic inputs.
• Analog TV source input includes: 1 x Coaxial analog TV Antenna (BNL)
• Video source inputs include: 2 x S-Video, 2 x Composite Video, and 2 x SCART.
• Graphic source inputs include: 2 x Component Video (Y/Pb/Pr) or (Y/Cb/Cr), 1 x HDMI/
DVI, and 1 x PC D-Sub.
You should connect whichever TV, Video or Graphic sources you wish to view on the display.
You need not connect more than one if that one is all you wish to view.
Connecting analog TV source inputs
The TV Antenna input is the only input which can make use of the built-in TV tuner and enable
this display to be referred to as a TV. You can connect an external VHF or UHF TV antenna (if
available) to the TV Antenna input using an appropriate TV coaxial cable, and select the 'ATV'
input to view analog TV broadcasts. See "4. Connect the antenna cable" on page 4.
If you have cable TV, you can connect your cable TV decoder box to the TV Antenna input using
an appropriate TV coaxial cable, and select the 'ATV' input to view cable TV.
Connecting Composite (AV) source inputs
You can connect an external analog video device (if available—VCR, VCD or DVD) to either of
the Composite Video (AV or SCART) or S-Video inputs, and select 'AV1', 'AV2' (for SCART
input), 'AV3', 'AV4' (for AV input), 'AV3-S', 'AV4-S' (for S-Video input) or 'AV2-S' (for S-Video
via SCART input) as the input source respectively to view analog video. See "Connecting the
Composite Video input" on page 22, "Connecting the SCART inputs" on page 21 or
"Connecting the S-Video input" on page 22. If the video source device supports it, you could
alternatively connect it using the Component inputs for the best possible resolution picture.
Connecting Component Video source inputs
You can connect Component Video inputs such as an external digital TV (DTV) tuner to either
of the Component Video inputs, and select the 'Component 1' or 'Component 2' input
respectively to view DTV broadcasts. See "Connecting the Component Video input" on page 23.

input terminals on the back of the display using
the Composite Video cable (RCA connector, not
provided) as illustrated.
A Composite Video cable consists of three
connectors: Yellow (video), White (left channel
audio), and Red (right channel audio).
Composite Video input is the most
commonly used signal input, however, this
type of input provides the least optimal
image quality. S-Video and Component
Video provide better quality signals.
Many video sources can only output
Composite video signals, for example,
most VCRs, analog Camcorders and game
consoles.

Connecting the S-Video input
1. Connect the S-Video output of your AV
equipment to the display's AV3 S-VIDEO
terminal using the S-Video cable (not
provided). Pay attention to the alignment of
the plugs on the S-Video cable when inserting
so as not to damage any pins.
2. Connect the audio output of your AV
equipment to the display's AV3 AUDIO L/R
input terminals using the AV cable (not
provided). The yellow plugs are not used.
You need not connect both a Composite
Video and an S-Video from the same
device; just one or the other.
If you have the choice, use the S-Video
instead of Composite Video as an S-video
signal provides a higher quality image to
that of Composite Video.

'16:9' is most suitable for images which are already in a 16:9 aspect, like HDTV, as it displays
them without any aspect alteration. This differs from the 'Wide' aspect setting (described below)
in that '16:9' uses linear image resizing, whereas 'Wide' uses non-linear resizing.
4:3
Resizes the image linearly and non-proportionately to a 4:3 aspect ratio, no matter what the
aspect of the image source. In this mode, only an area of 1024 x 768 pixels in the center of the
screen is used to display images.

According to the signal sources connected to the display, the input video images may have
different native aspect ratios. Aspect ratio refers to the ratio between the length and width of the
video image. For example, standard definition TV video images have a 4:3 native aspect ratio,
while HDTV video images have a 16:9 native aspect ratio.
Your display is a digital display device that is capable of displaying video images in various
aspect ratios regardless of their native aspect ratios. Please refer to the descriptions below for the
selectable aspect ratios of the display and the resultant video images.

black (unlit) vertical bars visible on the vertical edges of the screen on either side of the image,
marking the difference between the width of a 4:3 aspect image and a 16:9 screen of the same
height.
Letterbox
Resizes and scales the image proportionately and linearly at a given zoom ratio which can reach
full screen, no matter what the aspect of the image source. This does not alter the displayed
image aspect.

16:9 aspect ratio video image
'Letterbox' scales the image to a larger size than the screen on the expectation that the source is
presented in a 4:3 aspect ratio. This effectively enlarges the size of the image so that the width
matches the width of the screen, and the height stretches beyond the height of the screen to give
a 16:9 ratio version of the original 4:3 image, resulting with the cropping of the top and bottom
of the original 4:3 image. Some of the image is cropped and lost (not visible on-screen).
'Letterbox' is most suitable for images which are displayed in the so-called letterbox presentation
format, which is created from a 16:9 aspect ratio image scaled down proportionally to fit into a
4:3 aspect display frame, resulting in black (unlit) horizontal bars visible on the image top and
bottom marking the difference between the height of a 16:9 aspect image and a 4:3 screen of the
same width.
Wide
Resizes the image non-linearly, no matter what the aspect of the image source. This may alter the
resultant displayed image aspect.

'Wide' non-linearly resizes the height of the image until it matches the full display height, and
non-linearly resizes the width of the image until it matches the full display width. Non-linear
resizing typically alters the image more towards the edges of the image, leaving the centre
relatively unaltered. Non-linear resizing is useful for 4:3 aspect ratio images. This differs from

Picture ghosting is caused by reflections from buildings,
large metal structures and mountains. Carefully realign
your antenna to minimise the ghost images. Ultimately a
higher quality antenna professionally installed may be
necessary to reduce the ghosting.
There may be interference from automobiles, trains, high
voltage lines, neon lights, etc.
There may be interference between the antenna cable and
power cable. Try positioning them further apart.
Is the display receiving interference from other devices?
Transmission antennas of radio broadcasting stations and
transmission antennas of amateur radios and cellular
phones may also cause interference.
Use the display as far away as possible from devices that
may cause possible interference.
