1.2 Product Safety Precautions








Ensure that sufficient space is available around the display to provide the circulation necessary for cooling.
Ensure that the ambient air temperature will not exceed the specified maximum temperature.
Do not attempt to service this display yourself. The rear chassis has a seal so that non qualified personnel
will not expose themselves to dangerous voltages or other risks.
To protect from electrical shock, unplug the display power supply from the wall before moving.
Do not expose the display to direct sunlight or heat.
Do not use this display near water.
Do not place any heavy objects on the power cords. Damage may cause electrical shock.
Unplug the power supply from the wall or unit if one of the following conditions exists:
Power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
Liquid is spilled onto the display or the display is exposed to rain or water.
The display does not operate normally when the operating instructions are followed.
The display has been dropped or the enclosure has been damaged.
The display exhibits a distinct change in performance, indicating a need for service.

SECTION 2
2.1 Inspection of your VT190 display
The VT190 is supplied with different accessories depending on the model configuration purchased.
Verify the VT190 and accessories are what were ordered. Contact your Vartech salesperson should
there be any discrepancies.
2.2 Unpacking and setting up your VT190 display
Your LCD monitor package will consist of the components listed below. Open shipping container and
place all the components on a flat clean surface.
2.3 What is included with your VT190 display
VT190 LCD Monitor.
VGA Video Cable.
Power Cable for AC input (optional DC cable for DC input voltage).
Users Manual CDROM
Mounting Hardware, 10-32 Locking Nuts . (for Panel Mount units only)
Touch Interface Cable, Serial or USB (Optional when touch is installed)
CDROM with Touch Screen Drivers (Optional when touch is installed)
2.4 Connecting the VT190 display
1. Connect all cables to the computer first. This would include the VGA Video cable and any optional
touch interface cable, serial or USB.
2. After connecting the cables between the LCD monitor and the computer, connect the Power Cable to the
display and the customer supplied DC voltage source. Check the display unit label to determine the correct
DC voltage.
3. Turn the DC voltage source on. The display will be active.
4. Turn on your computer. The display should now operate showing your OS or the video that is being supplied
to the flat panel.
Note: If for any reason the display goes blank and gives an “Out of Range” or “No Input Signal”, your computer
or video source is supplying a signal that is “out of range” of the LCD’s video board. If this happens, reboot the
computer or video source and make sure you are supplying the correct video resolution and refresh signal. If the
display doesn’t work properly, it may be because:




The resolution is too high or low for the LCD.
The refresh rate is set too high. Set the refresh rate to 60Hz.
The power source is incorrect.
The unit is malfunctioning. If you believe this to be true, disconnect the video cable from the LCD display
and connect to a known working display. If the display is working satisfactory and the video is within the
appropriate range, then contact Vartech Customer service for a RMA number at 800-223-8050.

9 VT190 DiamondVue/CrystalVue User’s Guide 150‐180 TOUCHSCREEN
SECTION 4
4.1 Introduction
Touch screens are a common means to interface operator inputs to a system. The universal standard of Windows GUI
(Graphical User Interface) has significantly increased the use of touch screens.
There are five main touch technologies. The technologies are resistive, surface acoustic wave (SAW), capacitive,
infrared (IR), and projective capacitive. Each touch technology has advantages and disadvantages based on
different user applications.
4.2 Installation
All Vartech Systems displays configured with a touch screen are supplied with a CDROM which includes user manuals,
application software, and drivers for various operating systems. Insert the supplied CDROM into a CDROM drive and
follow the installation instructions that will appear on the screen.
Technical support is available by contacting Vartech Systems customer support at 800-223-8050.
10 VT190 DiamondVue/CrystalVue User’s Guide 150‐180 TROUBLESHOOTING
SECTION 5
5.1
General
A general guide to troubleshooting a flat panel display system it is worth considering the system as separate elements,
such as: Controller (jumpers, PC settings) Panel (controller, cabling, connection, panel, PC settings) Backlight (inverter,
cabling, backlight tubes) Cabling Computer system (display settings, operating system) Through step by step cross
checking with instruction manuals and a process of elimination to isolate the problem it is usually possible to clearly
identify the problem area.
No image:
If the panel backlight is not working it may still be possible to just see some image on the display. A lack of
image is most likely to be caused by incorrect connection, lack of power, failure to provide a signal or
incorrect graphic card settings.
Image position:
If it is impossible to position the image correctly, i.e. the image adjustment controls will not move the image far enough,
then test using another graphics card. This situation can occur with a custom graphics card that is not close to standard
timings or if something is in the graphics line that may be affecting the signal such as a signal splitter (please note that
normally a signal splitter will not have any adverse effect).
Image appearance:
A faulty panel can have blank lines, failed sections, flickering or flashing display,
incorrect graphics card refresh rate, resolution or interlaced mode will probably cause
the image to be the wrong size, to scroll, flicker badly or possibly even no image.
Incorrect jumper settings on the controller may cause everything from total failure to
incorrect image. CAUTION: Do not set the panel power input incorrectly. Sparkling on
the display: faulty panel signal cable.
Backlight:
Items to check include: Power input, Controls, Inverter and Tubes generally in this order. If half the screen is dimmer
than the other half: Check cabling for the inverter. For a specific backlight tube check the AC pins orientation
(CAUTION: Never reverse any DC power pins). Also: If adjusting brightness control has no effect the chances are that
the VR rating or method of adjusting brightness is not compatible or correctly connected to the inverter. If system does
not power down when there is a loss of signal
Continued failure:
If unit after unit keeps failing consider and investigate whether you are short circuiting the equipment or doing
something else seriously wrong.
Generally after common sense issues have been resolved we recommend step by step substitution of known working
parts to isolate the problem.
11 VT190 DiamondVue/CrystalVue User’s Guide 150‐180 MAINTENANCE SECTION 6
6.1 Cleaning
Occasionally clean the display panel and cabinet with a soft cloth dampened (not soaked) with a mild (non-abrasive)
glass cleaner. Keep turning a fresh side of the cloth toward the screen surface to avoid scratching it with accumulated
grit.
Note: The solvent should be applied only to the cloth, and not directly on the monitor screen.
Do not use paper products as they may scratch the surface. To minimize the risk of abrasion, allow the screen to stand
dry. Special care should be taken when cleaning a touch screen or polycarbonate shield that is installed over the screen.
Abrasive and certain chemical cleaners can easily damage the surface. Never use alcoholic or ammoniac cleaners to
clean the polycarbonate shield or a touch screen.
Note: For best results cleaning a monitor with the optional antireflective tempered glass display shield, a solution of
denatured alcohol is recommended to thoroughly clean the display.
Replacing a Line Cord
To avoid shock and fire hazards, the monitor’s power cord should be replaced if the insulation becomes broken or if it
develops a loose internal connection.
Other Maintenance
Qualified service personnel should perform all maintenance, except for the power cord replacement described above.
