A: Windows XP: Set the resolution in the Control Panel → Appearance and Themes → Display → Screen Saver. Set the function in the BIOS-SETUP of the computer. (Refer to the Windows / Computer Manual). A: Windows ME/2000: Set the resolution at the Control Panel → Display → Screen Saver. Set the function in the BIOS-SETUP of the computer. (Refer to the Windows / Computer Manual). Q: How can I clean the outer case/LCD Panel? A: Disconnect the power cord and then clean the monitor with a soft cloth, using either a cleaning solution or plain water. Do not leave any detergent or scratches on the case. Do not let any water enter the monitor. Q: How I can clone or extend screen mode? A: Open the”Display Properties” window and select the “Settings” tab, Q: How can I remove the “USB Monitor Installation Program” completely? Troubleshooting A: Click “Add/Remove Programs” in the “Control Panel”. A list of “currently installed programs” is displayed. Select “Samsung UbiSync Monitor” from the list and click “Remove”. Q: The screen size of the USB monitor is larger than the actual monitor size. A: If the primary monitor has a high resolution, screens are expanded beyond the recommended resolution in Clone mode (USB monitor). Q: The screen size of the USB monitor is smaller than the actual monitor size. The screen is centered on the monitor. A: If the primary monitor has a high resolution, screens are smaller than the recommended resolution in Clone mode (USB monitor). Q: I disconnected or turned off my USB monitor but my PC still displays the old monitor information in the Display Properties window. A: The deactivated USB monitors are such that the power to them is turned off or their USB cables are disconnected. To remove this information, you have to remove the “Samsung Ubisync Monitor” program from “Add/Remove Programs” in the “Control Panel”. If you remove the program you cannot use all the connected USB monitors. If you want to use the USB monitor again, you have to setup the installation program again. Q: Icons and photos are broken or jagged in Clone mode (USB monitor). A: This occurs because Windows does not send the screen updating information to Clone mode if Extended mode is active on a single PC. We recommend using the monitor in Extend mode.

Do not force the LCD area but rub softly. If excessive force is applied, you may stain it. If you are not satisfied with the picture quality, you can get better quality of picture by performing the "Auto Adjustment function" in display screen that is appeared as window termination button is pressed. If there's still noise after the automatic adjustment, use the Fine/Coarse adjustment function. When viewing a fixed screen for an extended period of time, a residual image or blurriness may appear. Change the mode to energy save or set a screensaver to move the picture when you need to be away from the monitor for an extended period of time. PRODUCT INFORMATION (Image Retention Free) LCD Monitors and TVs may have image retention when switching from one image to another especially after displaying a stationary image for a long time. This guide is to demonstrate correct usage of LCD products in order to protect them from Image retention. Warranty Warranty does not cover any damage caused by image retention. Burn-in is not covered by the warranty. What is Image retention ? During normal operation of a LCD panel, pixel image retention doesn't occur. However, if the same image is displayed for a long time, a slight difference in electric charge accumu- Information lates between the two electrodes which encase the liquid crystal. This may cause the liquid crystal to build up in a certain areas of the display. Thus, the previous image is retained when switching to a new video image. All display products, including LCD, are subject to image retention. This is not a product defect. Please follow the suggestions below to protect your LCD from image retention. Power Off, Screen Saver, or Power Save Mode Ex) • • Turn the power off when using a stationary pattern. • Turn the power off for 4 hours after 20 hours in use • Turn the power off for 2 hours after 12 hours in use Use a Screen saver if possible • • Screen saver in one color or a moving image is recommended. Set the Monitor to power off with the PC Display Properties Power Scheme. Suggestions for specific applications Ex) Airports, Transit Stations, Stock Markets, Banks, and Controlling Systems We recommend that you follow set up of your display system program as below: Display Information together with Logo or Moving image cycle. Ex) Cycle : Display Information for 1 hour followed by a Display Logo or moving image for 1 minute. Change the Color Information periodically (Use 2 different colors). Ex) Rotate the Color Information with 2 colors every 30 minutes. Avoid using a combination of characters and background color with large difference in luminance. Avoid using Grey colors, which can cause Image retention easily. • Avoid: Colors with big difference in luminance (Black & White, Grey) Ex) • Recommended settings: Bright colors with little difference in luminance Information • Change the characters color and background color every 30 minutes Ex) • Every 30 minutes, change the characters with movement. Ex) The best way to protect your monitor from Image retention is to set your PC or System to operate a Screen Saver program when you are not using it. Image retention may not occur when a LCD panel is operated under normal conditions. Normal conditions are defined as continuously changing video patterns. When the LCD panel is operated for a long time with a fixed pattern (-over 12 hours-), there may be slight difference in voltage between electrodes that work the liquid crystal (LC) in a pixel. The voltage difference between electrodes increases with time, forcing the liquid crystal to lean. When this occurs, the previous image may be seen when the pattern is changed. To prevent this, the accumulated voltage difference must be decreased.

The closer the dots, the higher the resolution. The distance between two dots of the same color is called the 'Dot Pitch'. Unit: mm Vertical Frequency The screen must be redrawn several times per second in order to create and display an image for the user. The frequency of this repetition per second is called the Vertical Frequency or Refresh Rate. Unit: Hz Example: If the same light repeats itself 60 times per second, this is regarded as 60 Hz. Horizontal Frequency The time to scan one line connecting the right edge to the left edge of the screen horizontally is called the Horizontal Cycle. The inverse number of the Horizontal Cycle is called Horizontal Frequency. Unit: kHz Interlace Methods Showing the horizontal lines of the screen from the top to the bottom sequentially is called the Non-Interlace method while showing odd lines and then even lines in turn is called the Interlace method. The Non-Interlace method is used for the majority of monitors to ensure a clear image. The Interlace method is the same as that used in TVs. and Non-Interlace Plug & Play This is a function that provides the best quality screen for the user by allowing the computer and the monitor to exchange information automatically. This monitor follows the international standard VESA DDC for the Plug & Play function. Resolution The number of horizontal and vertical dots used to compose the screen image is called the 'resolution'. This number shows the accuracy of the display. A high resolution is good for performing multiple tasks as more image information can be shown on the screen. Example: If the resolution is 1680 x 1050, this means the screen is composed of 1680 horizontal dots (horizontal resolution) and 1050 vertical lines (vertical resolution).
