Energy Star Guidelines
The Fujitsu Siemens LCD color monitor 4612 FA is designed to conserve
electricity by dropping to less than 5 W when it goes into standby,
suspend and OFF mode. With this new power management the 4612 FA
qualifies for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Energy
Star Computers award.

Notes on ergonomic color adjustment
If you select colors for the display in your application programs, take note of the information below.
The primary colors blue and red on a dark background do not produce the minimum required
contrast of 3:1 and are therefore not suitable for continuous text and data entry.
When using several colors for characters and background and giving the primary colors full
modulation, you can obtain very suitable color combinations (see the following table):
Background

VESA-DDC-compatible VGA interface
Your monitor is equipped with a VESA-DDC-compatible VGA interface. VESA-DDC (Video
Electronics Standard Association, Display Data Channel) is used as the communications interface
between the monitor and the computer. If your computer is equipped with a VESA-DDC-compatible
VGA interface, it can automatically read the data for ensuring optimum operation from your monitor
and select the appropriate settings.

The display position and size have been set to optimum values at the factory for the
operating modes listed above. Depending on the screen controller used, it may be
necessary to adjust the display position and size. In this case, you can change and save
the settings (see "Operation of the monitor").
The following are the most frequently used of the preset operating modes:

Permanently unlit or lit pixels
Pixel faults in the form of permanently lit or unlit pixels can occur with TFT displays. Up to 10
permanently lit and/or 10 unlit pixels does not constitute grounds for exchanging the unit. Please
contact our Help Desk if the number of pixel faults exceeds the above number.
The screen becomes darker
The background lighting has a limited lifetime. If your monitor display should become too dark, the
background lighting will have to be exchanged. Please contact our Help Desk.
Image of last screen display still visible
If you switch from a high-contrast display (for example black lines/characters on a white
background) to a picture of medium brightness, you may be able to see a faint image of the previous
display for a time. This phenomenon is not due to a monitor defect but to the technology used (IPS
display with large viewing angle, IPS = In Plane Switching).
