Operating the Monitor

CD Software and Utilities

The CD included with this monitor contains two files you can install on your computer:

■ An INF (information) file

■ An ICM (Image Color Matching) file

This CD also contains the auto-adjustment utility. This single pattern program helps improve the picture quality of your VGA input monitor. See “Using the Auto-Adjustment Function” in this chapter.

Adobe Acrobat Reader is supplied on the CD and can be installed from the menu.

The Information File

This monitor is Windows Plug and Play compatible, and the monitor will work correctly without installing the INF file. The

INF file enables the computer to communicate with the monitor and use all the monitor features. The INF file defines monitor resources used by Microsoft Windows

®

operating systems to ensure monitor compatibility with your computer’s graphics adapter.

Monitor Plug and Play compatibility requires that the computer’s graphics card is VESA DDC2 compliant and that the monitor connects directly to the graphics card. Plug and Play does not work through separate BNC-type connectors or through distribution buffers or boxes. You may have to install the INF file from the CD if these conditions are not met.

User’s Guide 4–1

Operating the Monitor

The Image Color Matching File

The ICM files provide more accurate color representation by supplying data to graphics programs to provide consistent color matching from monitor screen to printer, or from scanner to the monitor screen. The ICM files contain a monitor color system profile. These files are activated from within graphics programs that support this feature.

The ICM color profile is written in accordance with the

International Color Consortium (ICC) Profile Format Specification.

Installing INF and ICM Files

If you determine that you need to update these files, you can install

INF and ICM files from the CD, or download them from the

Internet.

Identifying Monitor Conditions

Special messages display on the monitor screen for the following monitor conditions:

Input Signal Out of Range Indicates the monitor does not support the video input signal because the resolution or refresh rate are set higher than the monitor supports.

Set the resolution and refresh rate to the value displayed.

Restart your computer for the new settings to take effect.

Monitor Going to Sleep — Indicates the screen display is entering a sleep mode. The speakers are turned off in sleep mode.

Check Video Cable — Indicates a video input cable is not properly connected to the computer or monitor.

OSD Lock — The OSD can be enabled or disabled by pressing and holding the Menu button on the front panel for

10 seconds. If the OSD is locked, the warning message

“OSD Lock” displays for 10 seconds.

❏ If the OSD is locked, press and hold the Menu button for

10 seconds to unlock the OSD.

❏ If the OSD is unlocked, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds to lock the OSD.

No Input Signal — Indicates the monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer on the monitor video input connector(s). Check to see if the computer or input signal source is off or in the power-saving mode.

Auto-Adjustment is in Progress — Indicates the

Auto-adjustment function is active. See “Adjusting Screen

Quality” in this chapter.

Operating the Monitor

Adjusting Screen Quality

The auto-adjustment feature automatically fine-tunes the image quality for display size, position, clock, and phase each time a new video mode is displayed. For more precise adjustments of analog input (VGA), run the Auto-Adjustment software on the CD.

See “Using the Auto-Adjustment Function” in this chapter.

If additional image quality improvement is desired, use the Clock and Phase controls of the monitor to fine-tune the image. See

“Optimizing Analog Video” in this chapter.

Optimizing Analog Video

This monitor contains advanced circuitry that allows the monitor to function as a standard analog monitor. Two controls in the

Advanced Menu OSD can be adjusted to improve analog image performance:

■ Clock — Increase or decrease the value to minimize any vertical bars or stripes visible on the screen background.

■ Clock Phase — Increase or decrease the value to minimize video distortion or video jitter.

Use these controls only when the auto-adjustment function does not provide a satisfactory monitor image in analog mode.

To obtain the best results:

1. Allow the monitor to warm up for 20 minutes before adjusting.

2. Display the adjustment pattern application provided on the CD.

3. Access the Advanced Menu OSD; select Image Control.

4. Set the main Clock correctly first, because the Clock Phase settings depend on the main Clock setting.

❏ When adjusting the Clock and Clock Phase values, if the monitor images become distorted, continue adjusting the values until the distortion disappears.

To restore the factory settings, access the Advanced Menu OSD, select Factory Reset, and then select Yes.

User’s Guide 4–15

Operating the Monitor

Entering User Modes

The video controller signal may occasionally require a custom user mode if you are not using a standard graphics adapter or pre-set mode. In this condition, you may need to create a user mode. You can use the OSD to:

■ Create a user-defined mode with custom monitor screen parameters.

■ Readjust the parameters of any user mode.

■ Save them in memory. The monitor automatically stores the new setting, then recognizes the new mode just as it does a pre-set mode.

Ten user modes can be entered and stored, in addition to the

factory pre-set modes (see the table “Factory Pre-set Video Input

Modes” in Appendix B).

Operating the Monitor

Power-Saver Feature

When the monitor is in normal operating mode, the Power light is blue and the monitor uses the normal watts of power. For power

usage, refer to “Technical Specifications” (Appendix B).

The monitor also supports a power-saver mode that is controlled by the computer. When the monitor is in the reduced power state, the monitor screen is blank, the backlight is off, and the Power light is amber. The monitor uses minimum power. When awaken, a brief warm-up period occurs before the monitor returns to normal operating mode. The energy-saving reduced power state activates if the monitor does not detect either the horizontal sync signal or the vertical sync signal. The Power-Saver feature must be activated on your PC for this feature to work.

Refer to your computer documentation for instructions on setting energy-saver features (sometimes called power management features).

The energy-saver feature works only when the monitor is connected to computers that have energy-saver features.

LCD Monitor Quality and Pixel Policy

The HP LCD Monitor uses high-precision technology, manufactured according to high standards, to guarantee trouble-free performance. Nevertheless, the display may have cosmetic imperfections that appear as small bright or dark spots. This is common to all LCD displays used in products supplied by all vendors and is not specific to the HP LCD Monitor. These imperfections are caused by one or more defective pixels or subpixels.

■ A pixel consists of one red, one green, and one blue subpixel.

■ A defective whole pixel is always turned on (a bright spot on a dark background), or it is always off (a dark spot on a bright background). The first is the more visible of the two.

■ A defective subpixel (dot defect) is less visible than a defective whole pixel and is small and only visible on a specific background.

The HP LCD Monitor has:

Less than 8 total dot defects

■ 0 defective full pixels

5 defective bright subpixels (maximum)

■ 5 defective dark subpixels (maximum)

To locate defective pixels, the monitor should be viewed under normal operating conditions and in normal operating mode at a supported resolution and refresh rate, from a distance of approximately 50 cm (16 inches).

We expect that, over time, the industry will continue to improve its ability to produce displays with fewer cosmetic imperfections, and we will adjust guidelines as improvements are made.

Technical Specifications

Power Cord Set Requirements

The monitor power supply is provided with Automatic Line

Switching (ALS). This feature allows the monitor to operate on input voltages between 100–120V or 200–240V .

The power cord set (flexible cord or wall plug) received with the monitor meets the requirements for use in the country/region where you purchased the equipment.

If you need to obtain a power cord for a different country/region, you should purchase a power cord that is approved for use in that country/region.

The power cord must be rated for the product and for the voltage and current marked on the product’s electrical ratings label.

The voltage and current rating of the cord should be greater than the voltage and current rating marked on the product. In addition, the cross-sectional area of the wire must be a minimum of

0.75 mm² or 18AWG, and the length of the cord must be between 4.94 ft. (1.5 m) and 12 ft. (3.6 m). If you have questions about the type of power cord to use, contact your

HP-authorized service provider.

A power cord should be routed so that it is not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon it or against it. Particular attention should be paid to the plug, electrical outlet, and the point where the cord exits from the product.
