Maintenance Guidelines
Cleaning Your Monitor
CAUTION: Read and follow the safety instructions before cleaning the monitor. CAUTION: Before cleaning the monitor, unplug the monitor power cable from the electrical outlet. To clean your antistatic screen, slightly dampen a soft, clean cloth with water. If possible, use a special screen-cleaning tissue or solution suitable for the antistatic
coating. Do not use benzene, thinner, ammonia, abrasive cleaners, or compressed air.
Use a slightly dampened, warm cloth to clean the plastics. Avoid using detergent of any kind as some detergents leave a milky film on the plastics. If you notice a white powder when you unpack your monitor, wipe it off with a cloth. This white powder occurs during the shipping of the monitor.
Handle your monitor with care as darker-colored monitor may scratch and show white scuff marks more than lighter-colored monitor. To help maintain the best image quality on your monitor, use a dynamically changing screen saver and power off your monitor when not in use.
