FCC Statement Warning
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates,
uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy, and if not installed and used in accordance
with the instruction, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However,
there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be
determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and the receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturers may void the
user's authority to operate this equipment.
NOTE
A shielded-type signal cord is required in order to meet the FCC emission limits and also to
prevent interference to the radio and television reception. It is essential that only the supplied
signal cord be used.
Canadian DOC Notice
This Class B digital apparatus meets all requirements of the Canadian Interference-Causing
Equipment Regulations.

Chapter 1 Installation
Unpacking
Before unpacking the LCD Monitor, prepare a suitable workspace for your Monitor and
computer. You need a stable and clean surface near a wall power outlet. Make sure that LCD
Monitor has enough space around it for sufficient airflow. Though the LCD Monitor uses very
little power, some ventilation is needed to ensure that the Monitor does not become too hot.
After you unpack the LCD Monitor, make sure that the following items were included in the
box:
* LCD Monitor
* AC Adapter
* 1.5M Monitor-to-PC signal Cable
* 1.8M Power Cord
* User's Manual
* Base
If you find that any of these items is missing or appears damaged, contact your dealer
immediately.
Connecting the LCD Monitor and Base
When you open the box to take the base
and put on the desk first. Then connect
the LCD Monitor and base please.(See
fig.1-1 )
Figure 1-1
Viewing Angle Adjustment
The LCD Monitor is designed to allow
users to have a comfortable viewing
angle. The viewing angle can be
adjusted from -5°to +35°.(See fig. 1-2)
Figure 1-2
Warning
Do not force the LCD Monitor over its maximum viewing angle settings as stated above.
Attempting this will result in damaging the Monitor and Monitor stand.

Detaching LCD Monitor from Its Stand
1. Unscrew screws of the hinge bracket
2. Remove the stand from LCD monitor
(See fig. 1-3)
Figure 1-3
Interface for Arm Applications
Before installing to mounting device, please
refer to Fig.1-3.
The rear of this LCD display has four
integrated 4 mm, 0.7 pitches threaded nuts,
as well as four 5 mm access holes in the
plastic covering as illustrated in Figure 1-4.
These specifications meet the VESA Flat
Panel Monitor Physical Mounting
Interface Standard (paragraphs 2.1 and
2.1.3, version 1, dated 13 November 1997).
Figure 1-4
Connecting the Display to your Computer
1. Power off your computer.
2. Connect one end of the signal cable to the
LCD Monitor's VGA port. (See Fig. 1-5)
3. Connect the other end of the signal cable
to the VGA port on your PC.
4. Make sure both connections are secure.
Figure 1-5
Attention
This device must be connected to an off-the-shelf video cable in order to comply with FCC
regulations. A ferrite-core interface cable is included in the LCD Monitor package.
This device will not be in compliance with FCC regulations when a non-ferrite-core video
cable is used.
5
Connecting the AC Power
1. Connect the power cord to the AC adapter.
(See Fig. 1-6)
2. Connect the AC adapter's DC output
connector to the DC Power Jack of the
monitor.
3. Connect the power cord to an AC power
source.
Figure 1-6
Warning
We recommand to install a "Surge Protector" device between the AC Adapter and the
electrical wall outlet for adding protection against power surges to prevent the effects of
sudden voltage variations from reaching the LCD Monitor. Sudden power surges may
damage your monitor.
Setting Up the LCD Monitor
1. Make sure the AC Adapter is connected to the LCD Monitor.
2. Turn on the LCD Monitor's power switch, located on the bezel of the monitor.
Power Management System
This LCD Monitor complies with the VESA DPMS (version 1.0) Power Management guidelines.
The VESA DPMS provides four power saving modes through detecting a horizontal or vertical
sync. signal.
When the LCD Monitor is in power saving mode, the monitor screen will be blank and the
power LED indicator will light yellow.

Troubleshooting
This LCD Monitor has pre-adjusted using factory standard VGA timings. Due to the output
timing differences among various VGA cards in the market, users may initially experience an
unstable or unclear display whenever a new display mode or new VGA card is selected.
Attention
This LCD Monitor Supports Multiple VGA Modes.
Refer to the Standard Timing Table for a listing of modes supported by this LCD Monitor.
PROBLEM
Picture is unclear and unstable
The picture is unclear and unstable, please perform the following steps :
1. Enter PC to “Shut Down Windows” status while you’re in MS-Windows environment.
2. Check the screen to see if there’s any black vertical stripes appear. If there are, take
advantage of the “Clock” function in OSD menu and adjust (by increment or decrement
numbers) until those bars disappear.
3. Move to “Phase” function in OSD menu again and adjust the monitor screen to its most
clear display.
4. Click “No” on “Shut Down Windows” and back to the normal PC operating environment.
PROBLEM There is no picture on LCD Monitor
If there’s no picture on the LCD Monitor, please perform the following steps:
1. Make sure the power indicator on the LCD Monitor is ON, all connections are secured,
and the system is running on the correct timing. Refer to Chapter 3 for information on
timing.
2. Turn off the LCD Monitor and then turn it back on again. If there is still no picture, press
the Adjustment Control button several times.
3. If step 2 doesn’t work, connect your PC system to another external CRT. If your PC
system Functions properly with a CRT Monitor but it does not function with the LCD
Monitor, the output timing of the VGA card may be out of the LCD’s synchronous range.
Please change to an alternative mode listed in the Standard Timing Table or replace the
VGA card, and then repeat steps 1 and 2.
PROBLEM
There is no picture on LCD Monitor
If you have chosen an output timing that is outside of the LCD Monitor’s synchronous range
(Horizontal: 24 ~ 61 KHz and Vertical: 56 ~ 75 Hz), the OSD will display a “Out of Range”
message. Choose a mode that is supported by your LCD Monitor.
Also, if the signal cable is not connected to LCD monitor at all or properly, the monitor
screen will display a message “No Input Signal”.
