Safety precautions and maintenance
WARNING: Use of controls, adjustments or procedures other than those
specified in this documentation may result in exposure to shock, electrical
hazards and/or mechanical hazards.
Read and follow these instructions when connecting and using your computer monitor:
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
Unplug the monitor if you are not going to use it for an extensive period of time.
Unplug the monitor if you need to clean it with a slightly damp cloth. The screen may be
wiped with a dry cloth when the power is off. However, never use alcohol, solvents or
ammonia-based liquids.
Consult a service technician if the monitor does not operate normally when you have
followed the instructions in this manual.
The casing cover should be opened only by qualified service personnel.
Keep the monitor out of direct sunlight and away from stoves or any other heat source.
Remove any object that could fall into the vents or prevent proper cooling of the monitor’s
electronics.
Do not block the ventilation holes on the cabinet.
Keep the monitor dry. To avoid electric shock, do not expose it to rain or excessive moisture.
When positioning the monitor, make sure the power plug and outlet are easily accessible.
If turning off the monitor by detaching the power cable or DC power cord, wait for 6 seconds
before attach the power cable or DC power cord for normal operation.
To avoid the risk of shock or permanent damage to the set, do not expose the monitor to rain
or excessive moisture.
IMPORTANT: Always activate a screen saver program during your application. If a still
image in high contrast remains on the screen for an extended period of time, it may leave an
'after-image' or 'ghost image' on the front of the screen. This is a well-known phenomenon
that is caused by the shortcomings inherent in the LCD technology. In most cases, the afterimage will disappear gradually over a period of time after the power has been switched off.
Be aware, that the after-image symptom cannot be repaired and is not covered under
warranty.

correctly.
In the Windows® Start Menu, select Settings/Control Panel. In the Control Panel Window,
select the Display icon. Inside the Display Control Panel, select the 'Settings' tab. Under the
settings tab, in a box labelled 'desktop area', move the slidebar to 1280x768 pixels (17"
Wide WXGA).
Open 'Advanced Properties' and set the Refresh Rate to 60Hz, then click OK.
Restart your computer and repeat steps 2 and 3 to verify that your PC is set at
1280x768@60Hz (17" Wide WXGA).
Shut down your computer, disconnect your old monitor and reconnect your Philips LCD
monitor.
Turn on your monitor and then turn on your PC.
Q: What does 'refresh rate' mean in connection with an LCD monitor?
A: The refresh rate is of much less relevance for LCD monitors. LCD monitors display a
stable, flicker-free image at 60Hz. There is no visible difference between 75Hz and 60Hz.
Q: What are the .inf and .icm files on the set-up disk & CD-ROM? How do I install the drivers
(.inf and .icm)?
file:///D|/My%20documents/dfu/B2C_TV_NAFTA/ENGLISH/170T4/safety/saf_faq.htm (1 of 9)6/30/2004 11:37:11 AM
FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
A: These are the driver files for your monitor. Follow the instructions in your user manual to
install the drivers. The computer may ask you for monitor drivers (.inf and .icm files) or a
driver disk when you first install your monitor. Follow the instructions to insert the driver
disk (either floppy or CD-ROM) included in this package. Monitor drivers (.inf and .icm files)
will be installed automatically.
Q: How do I adjust the resolution?
A: Your video card/graphic driver and monitor together determine the available resolutions.
You can select the desired resolution under Windows® 95/98 Me & 2000/XP with the 'Display
properties/Settings' control panel.
Q: What if I get lost when I am making monitor adjustments?
A: Simply press the OSD button, then select 'Reset' to recall all of the original factory
settings.
Q: My Monitor has no power (Power LED does not light up). What should I do?
A: Make sure the power cord is connected to the Monitor.
Q: Will the product accept an Interlace signal?
A: No. If an Interlace signal is used, the screen displays both odd and even horizontal
scanning lines at the same time, thus distorting the picture.
Q: What does the Refresh Rate mean for LCD?
A: Unlike CRT display technology, in which the speed of the electron beam is swept from
the top to the bottom of the screen determines flicker, an active matrix display uses an
active element (TFT) to control each individual pixel and the refresh rate is therefore not
really applicable to LCD technology.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q: Will the LCD screen be resistant to scratches?
A: A protective coating is applied to the surface of the LCD, which is durable to a certain
extent (approximately up to the hardness of a 2H pencil). In general, it is recommended that
the panel surface is not subject to any excessive shocks or scratches. An optional
protective cover with greater scratch resistance is also available.
Q: How should I clean the LCD surface?
A: For normal cleaning, use a clean, soft cloth. For extensive cleaning, please use isopropyl
alcohol. Do not use other solvents such as ethyl alcohol, ethanol, acetone, hexane, etc.
Q: Can the Philips LCD Monitor be mounted on the wall or used as a touch panel?
A: Yes. Philips LCD monitors have this optional feature. The standard VESA mount holes on
the back cover allows the user to mount the Philips monitor on any VESA standard ARM or
accessories. Touch panels are being developed for future applications. Check with your
Philips sales representative for more information.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q: When I install my monitor, how do I get the best performance from the monitor?
A:
1. For best performance, make sure your display settings are set at 1280x768@60Hz for 17"
Wide WXGA. Note: You can check the current display settings by pressing the OSD OK
button once.
The current display mode is shown in the product information in the OSD main controls.
2. To install the Flat Panel Adjust (FPadjust) program located on the monitor setup CD-ROM,
open the CD-ROM and double click the FP_setup03.exe icon. This will install FP Adjust
automatically and place a shortcut on your desktop.
3. Run FPadjust by double clicking the shortcut. Follow the instructions step by step to optimise
image performance with your system's video controller.
Q: How do LCDs compare with CRTs in terms of radiation?
A: Because LCDs do not use an electron gun, they do not generate the same amount of
radiation at the screen surface.

the PC98/99 platforms.
Q: What are S-VIDEO Signals?
A: These are 2 separate Y/C video signals from the S-VIDEO and Hi-8 recording standards.
The luminance signals Y (black and white) and chrominance signals C (colour) are recorded
separately on the tape. This provides a better picture quality than is achieved with standard
video (VHS and 8 mm) where the Y/C signals are combined to provide only one video signal.

LCD Panel Technology
Q: What is a Liquid Crystal Display?
A: A Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) is an optical device that is commonly used to display
ASCII characters and images on digital items such as watches, calculators, portable game
consoles, etc. LCD is the technology used for displays in notebooks and other small
computers. Like light-emitting diode and gas-plasma technologies, LCD allows displays to
be much thinner than cathode ray tube (CRT) technology. LCD consumes much less power
than LED and gas-displays because it works on the principle of blocking light rather than
emitting it.
Q: How are LCDs made?
A: LCDs are created from two glass plates separated from each other at a distance of a few
microns. The plates are filled with liquid crystal and then sealed together. The top plate is
colored with an RGB pattern to make the color filter. Polarizers are then glued to both plates.
This combination is sometimes called 'glass' or 'cell.' The LCD cell is assembled into a
'module' by adding the backlight, driver electronics and frame.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q: What is polarization ?
A: Polarization is basically directing light to shine in one direction. Light is electromagnetic
waves. Electric and magnetic fields oscillate in a direction perpendicular to the propagation
of the light beam. The direction of these fields is called the 'polarization direction'. Normal or
non-polarized light has fields in several directions; polarized light has a field in only one
direction.
Q: What differentiates passive matrix LCDs from active matrix LCDs?
A: An LCD is made with either a passive matrix or an active matrix display grid. An active
matrix has a transistor located at each pixel intersection, requiring less current to control
the luminance of a pixel. For this reason, the current in an active matrix display can be
switched on and off more frequently, improving the screen refresh time (your mouse pointer
will appear to move more smoothly across the screen, for example). The passive matrix LCD
has a grid of conductors with pixels located at each intersection in the grid.
Q: How does a TFT LCD Panel work?
A: On each column and row of the TFT LCD panel, a data source drive and a gate drive are
attached, respectively. The TFT drain of each cell is connected to the electrode. The
molecular arrangement of liquid crystal elements differ acceding to whether it is impressed
with voltage or not. It varies the direction of polarized light and the amount of light by letting
it through different arrays of liquid crystal elements. When two polarized filters are arranged
vertically on a polarized light pole, the light that passes through the upper polarized panel is
turned 90 degrees along with the spiral structure of the liquid crystal molecules and goes
through the polarized filter at the bottom. When impressed with voltage, liquid crystal
molecules are arranged vertically from the original spiral structure and the direction of the
light is not turned through 90 degrees. In this case, light that comes through the top
polarized panel may not go through the polarized panel at the bottom.
Q: What are the advantages of TFT LCD compared with CRT?
A: In a CRT monitor, a gun shoots electrons and general light by colliding polarized
electrons on fluorescent glass. Therefore, CRT monitors basically operate with an analog
RGB signal. A TFT LCD monitor is a device that displays an input image by operating a
liquid crystal panel. The TFT has a fundamentally different structure than a CRT: Each cell

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
has an active matrix structure and independent active elements. A TFT LCD has two glass
panels and the space between them is filled with liquid crystal. When each cell is connected
with electrodes and impressed with voltage, the molecular structure of the liquid crystal is
altered and controls the amount of inlet lighting to display images. A TFT LCD has several
advantages over a CRT, since it can be very thin and no flickering occurs because it does
not use the scanning method.
Q: Why is a vertical frequency of 60Hz optimal for an LCD monitor?
A: Unlike a CDT monitor, the TFT LCD panel has a fixed resolution. For example, an XGA
monitor has 1024x3 (R, G, B) x 768 pixels and a higher resolution may not be available
without additional software processing. The panel is designed to optimise the display for a
65MHz dot clock, one of the standards for XGA displays. Since the vertical/horizontal
frequency for this dot clock is 60Hz/48kHz, the optimum frequency for this monitor is 60Hz.
Q: What kind of wide-angle technology is available? How does it work?
A: The TFT LCD panel is an element that controls/displays the inlet of a backlight using the
dual-refraction of a liquid crystal. Using the property that the projection of inlet light refracts
toward the major axis of the liquid element, it controls the direction of inlet light and
displays it. Since the refraction ratio of inlet light on liquid crystal varies with the inlet angle
of the light, the viewing angle of a TFT is much narrower than that of a CDT. Usually, the
viewing angle refers to the point where the contrast ratio is 10. Many ways to widen the
viewing angle are currently being developed and the most common approach is to use a
wide viewing angle film, which widens the viewing angle by varying the refraction ratio. IPS
(In Plane Switching) or MVA (Multi Vertical Aligned) is also used to give a wider viewing
angle.
Q: Why is there no flicker on an LCD Monitor?
A: Technically speaking, LCDs do flicker, but the cause of the phenomenon is different from
that of a CRT monitor -- and it has no impact of the ease of viewing. Flickering in an LCD
monitor relates to usually undetectable luminance caused by the difference between
positive and negative voltage. On the other hand, CRT flickering that can irritate the human
eye occurs when the on/off action of the fluorescent object becomes visible. Since the
reaction speed of liquid crystal in an LCD panel is much slower, this troublesome form of
flickering is not present in an LCD display.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q: Why is an LCD monitor virtually free of Electro Magnetic Interference?
A: Unlike a CRT, an LCD monitor does not have key parts that generate Electro Magnetic
Interference, especially magnetic fields. Also, since an LCD display utilizes relatively low
power, its power supply is extremely quiet.

Ergonomics, Ecology and Safety Standards
Q: What is the CE mark?
A: The CE (Conformité Européenne) mark is required to be displayed on all regulated
products offered for sale on the European market. This 'CE' mark means that a product
complies with the relevant European Directive. A European Directive is a European 'Law'
that relates to health, safety, environment and consumer protection, much the same as the U.
S. National Electrical Code and UL Standards.
Q: Does the product conform to general safety standards?
A: Yes. Philips LCD monitors conform to the guidelines of MPR-II and TCO 99 standards for
the control of radiation, electromagnetic waves, energy reduction, electrical safety in the

TV and Audio Problems
●
Poor TV signal reception
●
No TV picture
●
No sound
●
The proximity of mountains or high
buildings may be responsible for ghost
pictures, echoing or shadows. In this
case, try manually adjusting your
pictures: see 'fine tuning' or adjust the
direction of the outside aerial.
Have you connected the aerial socket
properly? Have you chosen the right
system? Poorly connected aerial sockets
are often the cause of picture or sound
problems (sometimes the connectors can
become half disconnected if the Monitor
set is moved or turned). Check all
connections.
Ensure that the audio cables are firmly
connected to both the audio input
connectors on your Monitor and audio
output connectors on your PC or Video
player.
If on certain TV channels you receive a
picture but no sound, this means that you
do not have the correct TV system.
Modify the SYSTEM setting.

TCO '99 Information
Congratulations! You have just purchased a TCO '99 approved and
labeled product! Your choice has provided you with a product
developed for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed
to reducing the burden on the environment and also to the further
development of environmentally adapted electronics products.
Why do we have environmentally labeled computers?
In many countries, environmental labeling has become an established method for encouraging the
adaptation of goods and services to the environment. The main problem, as far as computers and other
electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful substances are used both in the
products and during their manufacture. Since it is not so far possible to satisfactorily recycle the majority of
electronics equipment, most of these potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter nature.
There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy consumption levels, that are important
from the viewpoints of both the work (internal) and natural (external) environments. Since all methods of
electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (e.g. acidic and climate-influencing
emissions, radioactive waste), it is vital to save energy. Electronics equipment in offices is often left running
continuously and thereby consumes a lot of energy.

Administration).
Approval requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, emission of
electric and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety.
The environmental demands impose restrictions on the presence and use of heavy metals, brominated and
chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among other things. The product
must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental policy which must
be adhered to in each country where the company implements its operational policy.
The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or display, after a certain period of
inactivity, shall reduce its power consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time to
reactivate the computer shall be reasonable for the user.

Environmental Requirements
Flame retardants
Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and housings. Their purpose
is to prevent, or at least to delay the spread of fire. Up to 30% of the plastic in a computer casing can
consist of flame retardant substances. Most flame retardants contain bromine or chloride, and those flame
retardants are chemically related to another group of environmental toxins, PCBs. Both the flame
file:///D|/My%20documents/dfu/B2C_TV_NAFTA/ENGLISH/170T4/safety/regs/regulat.htm (2 of 13)6/30/2004 11:37:14 AM
Regulatory Information
retardants containing bromine or chloride and the PCBs are suspected of giving rise to severe health
effects, including reproductive damage in fish-eating birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative*
processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that disturbances in
fetus development may occur.
The relevant TCO'99 demand requires that plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not
contain flame retardants with organically bound bromine or chlorine. Flame retardants are allowed in the
printed circuit boards since no substitutes are available.
Cadmium**
Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the color-generating layers of certain computer
displays. Cadmium damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO'99
requirement states that batteries, the color-generating layers of display screens and the electrical or
electronics components must not contain any cadmium.
Mercury**
Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. It damages the nervous system and is toxic
in high doses. The relevant TCO'99 requirement states that batteries may not contain any mercury. It also
demands that mercury is not present in any of the electrical or electronics components associated with the
labeled unit.
CFCs (freons)
The relevant TCO'99 requirement states that neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the
manufacture and assembly of the product. CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit
boards. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in the stratosphere, causing
increased reception on earth of ultraviolet light with increased risks e.g. skin cancer (malignant melanoma)
as a consequence.
Lead**
Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and capacitors. Lead damages the nervous
system and in higher doses, causes lead poisoning. The relevant TCO'99 requirement permits the inclusion
of lead since no replacement has yet been developed.
* Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living organisms.
** Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are bio-accumulative.

Philips' LCD Panel Pixel Defect Policy
Philips strives to deliver the highest quality products. We use some of the industry's most advanced
manufacturing processes and practice stringent quality control. However, pixel or sub pixel defects
on the TFT LCD panels used in flat panel monitors are sometimes unavoidable. No manufacturer
can guarantee that all panels will be free from pixel defects, but Philips guarantees that any monitor
with an unacceptable number of defects will be repaired or replaced under warranty. This notice
explains the different types of pixel defects and defines acceptable defect levels for each type. In
order to qualify for repair or replacement under warranty, the number of pixel defects on a TFT LCD
panel must exceed these acceptable levels. For example, no more than 0.0004% of the sub pixels
on a 15" XGA monitor may be defective. Furthermore, Philips sets even higher quality standards for
certain types or combinations of pixel defects that are more noticeable than others. This policy is
valid worldwide.
Pixels and Sub pixels
A pixel, or picture element, is composed of three sub pixels in the primary colors of red, green and
blue. Many pixels together form an image. When all sub pixels of a pixel are lit, the three colored
subpixels together appear as a single white pixel. When all are dark, the three colored sub pixels
together appear as a single black pixel. Other combinations of lit and dark sub pixels appear as
single pixels of other colors.

Philips Pixel Defect Policy
Types of Pixel Defects
Pixel and sub pixel defects appear on the screen in different ways. There are two categories of pixel
defects and several types of sub pixel defects within each category.
Bright Dot Defects appear as pixels or sub pixels that are always lit or 'on'. These are the types of
bright dot defects:
One lit red, green or blue
sub pixel
Two adjacent lit sub pixels:
- Red + Blue = Purple
Three adjacent lit sub pixels
- Red + Green = Yellow
- Green + Blue = Cyan (Light Blue) (one white pixel)
Black Dot Defects appear as pixels or sub pixels that are always dark or 'off'. These are the types of
black dot defects:

Philips Pixel Defect Policy
One dark sub pixel
Two or three adjacent dark sub pixels
Proximity of Pixel Defects
Because pixel and sub pixels defects of the same type that are near to one another may be more
noticeable, Philips also specifies tolerances for the proximity of pixel defects.
Pixel Defect Tolerances
In order to qualify for repair or replacement due to pixel defects during the warranty period, a TFT
LCD panel in a Philips flat panel monitor must have pixel or sub pixel defects exceeding the
tolerances listed in the following tables.

Locking the set / Parental Controls
Understanding Parental Controls
The Parental Controls feature receives and processes the data that contains programme
content advice sent by the broadcasters or other programme providers. When programmed
by the viewer, a TV with Parental Controls can respond to the content advice and block any
programme content that may be considered unsuitable (such as offensive language,
violence, sexual situations, etc.). This is a great feature for censoring the type of
programmes children watch.
In the Parental Controls section you'll learn how to block channels and programmes that are
not rated, are unrated, or have no rating. You will also find out how to turn these blocking
features ON or OFF. Below brief explanations are given of some terms and ratings relate to
the Parental Controls feature.
Parental Controls offers a variety of Blocking Options:
BLOCKING
The BLOCKING control can be thought of as the 'master switch' for Parental Controls. This
control implements the settings you have selected in order to block programmes in
accordance with movie ratings or TV ratings, or to block programmes that have no rating or
are unrated. When the BLOCKING control is OFF, the blocking or censoring of programmes
is disabled. When the BLOCKING control is ON, programmes will be blocked in accordance
with the settings you have chosen.
Movie Ratings (Motion Picture Association of America)
