by Samsung Electronics in association with Korea Electronics & Telecommunications Research Institute
(ETRI).
This is only available for Samsung monitors and ensures that the color of the images on the monitor are
the same as the printed or scanned images.
For more information, refer to Help (F1) in the software program. Installing the Natural Color

Q&A
Question
How can I change the frequency?
Answer
The frequency can be changed by reconfiguring the video card.
Note that video card support can vary, depending on the version of
the driver used. (Refer to the computer or the video card manual for
details.)
How can I adjust the resolution?
Windows ME/XP/2000 : Set the resolution at the Control
Panel→Display→Settings.
* Contact the video card manufacturer for details.
How can I set the Power Saving
function?
Windows ME/XP/2000 : Set the function at BIOS-SETUP of the
computer or the screen saver. (Refer to Windows/Computer
Manual).
How can I clean the outer case/LCD
Panel?
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.
How can I remove the “USB Monitor
Installation Program” completely?
1.Click ‘Add/Remove Programs’ in the ‘Control Panel’. A list of
‘currently installed programs’ is displayed.
2. Select ‘Samsung UbiSync Monitor’ from the list and click
‘Remove’.
There is no response when I rightclick “Samsung UbiSunc (P:) (USB
Monitor)” in the “My Computer”
window and click “Eject” in the

The screen size of the USB monitor is
larger than the actual monitor size.
If the primary monitor has a high resolution, screens are expanded
beyond the recommended resolution in Clone mode (USB monitor).
(Recommended resolution: 1280x1024)
The screen size of the USB monitor is
smaller than the actual monitor size.
The screen is centered on the
monitor.
If the primary monitor has a high resolution, screens are smaller than
the recommended resolution in Clone mode (USB monitor).
(Recommended resolution: 1280x1024)
I disconnected or turned off my USB
monitor but my PC still displays the
old monitor information in the Display
Properties window.
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.
Icons and photos are broken or
jagged in Clone mode (USB monitor).
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.
How I can clone or extend screen
mode?
Open the “Display Properties” window and select the “Settings” tab,

Dot Pitch
The image on a monitor is composed of red, green and blue dots. 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 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
Horizontal Cycle. The inverse number of the Horizontal Cycle is called Horizontal Frequency. Unit: kHz
Interlace and Non-Interlace Methods
Showing the horizontal lines of the screen from the top to the bottom in order is called the NonInterlace 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.
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 'resolution'.
This number shows the accuracy of the display. High resolution is good for performing multiple tasks as
more image information can be shown on the screen.
Example :If the resolution is 1280 x 1024 , this means the screen is composed of 1280 horizontal dots
(horizontal resolution) and 1024 vertical lines (vertical resolution).
For Better Display
1. Adjust computer resolution and screen injection rate (refresh rate) oncomputer as described below to
enjoy the best quality of picture. You can have an uneven quality of picture in the screen if the best
quality of picture is not provided in TFT-LCD.
{
Resolution: 1280 x 1024
{
Vertical frequency (refresh rate): 60 Hz
2. TFT LCD panel manufactured by using advanced semiconductor technology with precision of 1ppm
(one millionth) above is used for this product. But the pixels of RED, GREEN, BLUE and WHITE color
seem to be bright sometimes or some of black pixels could be seen.
This is not from bad quality and you can use it without uneasiness.
{
For example, the number of TFT LCD sub pixels that is contained in this product are 3,932,160.
3. When you clean the monitor and the panel outside, please apply the recommended small amount of
cleaner by using soft and dry cloth and polish it. Let LCD area not to be forced but to be scrubbed out
softly.
If excessive force is applied, you can have a stain on it.
4. If you are not satisfied with the quality of the picture, you can get better quality of the picture by
executing "auto adjustment function" in display screen that is appeared as window termination button
is pressed.
If there's still noise after automatic adjustment, use FINE/COARSE adjustment function.
5. If you view a fixed screen for an extended period of time, 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
accumulates 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)
z 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
z Use a Screen saver if possible
- Screen saver in one color or a moving image is recommended.
z 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)
z
Recommended settings: Bright colors with little difference in luminance
- Change the characters color and background color every 30 minutes
Ex)
z
- 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.
Our LCD Monitor satisfies ISO13406-2 Pixel fault Class II
