2 Safety and Maintenance Guidelines

Important Safety Information

A power cord is included with the monitor. If another cord is used, use only a power source and connection appropriate for this monitor. For information on the correct power cord set to use with the

monitor, refer to Power Cord Set Requirements on page 41 in Appendix C.

WARNING!

To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the equipment:

• Do not disable the power cord grounding feature. The grounding plug is an important safety feature.

• Plug the power cord into a grounded (earthed) electrical outlet that is easily accessible at all times.

• Disconnect power from the product by unplugging the power cord from the electrical outlet.

For your safety, do not place anything on power cords or cables. Arrange them so that no one may accidentally step on or trip over them. Do not pull on a cord or cable. When unplugging from the electrical outlet, grasp the cord by the plug.

To reduce the risk of serious injury, read the Safety and Comfort Guide. It describes proper workstation, setup, posture, and health and work habits for computer users, and provides important electrical and mechanical safety information.

4 Operating the Monitor

Software and Utilities

The CD that comes with the monitor contains files you can install on the computer:

● an .INF (Information) file

● an .ICM (Image Color Matching) file

● auto-adjustment pattern utility

● additional software for the monitor model

NOTE:

If the monitor does not include a CD, the .INF and .ICM files can be downloaded from the HP monitors support Web site. See

Downloading from the Worldwide Web on page 21

.

The Information File

The .INF file defines monitor resources used by Microsoft Windows operating systems to ensure monitor compatibility with the computer’s graphics adapter.

This monitor is Microsoft Windows Plug and Play compatible and the monitor will work correctly without installing the .INF file. Monitor Plug and Play compatibility requires that the computer’s graphic card is

VESA DDC2b-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/boxes.

The Image Color Matching File

The .ICM files are data files that are used in conjunction with graphics programs to provide consistent color matching from monitor screen to printer, or from scanner to monitor screen. The .ICM file contains a monitor color system profile. This file is activated from within graphics programs that support this feature.

NOTE:

The ICM color profile is written in accordance with the International Color Consortium (ICC)

Profile Format specification.

If additional image quality improvement is desired, run the Auto-Adjust software on the CD and press the – (Minus) button on the monitor front panel to manually activate the Auto-Adjustment function.

For more precise adjustments, use the HP Display Assistant utility or run the Adjustment Pattern provided on the CD and use the Clock and Clock Phase controls (accessible from the OSD menu) as described in the following section.

Optimizing Digital Conversion

Two controls in the on-screen display can be adjusted to improve image performance: Clock and Clock

Phase.

NOTE:

The Clock must first be set correctly since the Clock Phase settings are dependent on the main

Clock setting. Use these controls only when the auto-adjustment function does not provide a satisfactory image.

Clock—Increases/decreases the value to minimize any vertical bars or stripes visible on the screen background.

Clock Phase—Increases/decreases the value to minimize video distortion or video jitter.

NOTE:

When using the controls, you will obtain the best results by using the auto-adjustment pattern software utility provided on the CD.

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, select Yes from the

Factory Reset menu in the on-screen display.

26 Chapter 4 Operating the Monitor

Using the HP Display Assistant Utility

HP Display Assistant, included on the software and documentation CD, is a software utility that guides you through the tuning process with easy to understand instructions and background patterns designed for each monitor control. It provides:

Accurate screen calibration through the use of step-by-step instruction Wizards to obtain the best overall image quality

Software control of the monitor image and color settings to eliminate dependence on the monitor’s front panel buttons and On-Screen Display (OSD) menu

Defined preset display settings for each individual user in a multi-user environment

Multiple preset display settings for a single user based on content and ambient lighting

Asset Management and Power Management capabilities that include remote control for individual or a group of displays on the domain from a centralized console application

The HP Display Assistant Utility has two modes of operation: Wizard and OSD mode. The preferred method of use is Wizard mode, which takes you through a step-by-step process to accurately calibrate the monitor. This method relies on a sequence of steps that will obtain the best display results when completed.

NOTE:

Refer to the HP Display Assistant user guide or online help for additional information about the software.

HP Display LiteSaver

HP Display LiteSaver is a software application, available on the CD, that increases monitor life and saves energy. It allows you to place the monitor into its low power sleep mode at predefined times by shutting down or reducing power to most internal circuits. This helps protect the LCD panel against image retention. Image retention can occur when the monitor is left on while displaying the same image for an extended period of time, leaving a shadow of the image on the screen.

Entering User Modes

The video controller signal may occasionally call for a mode that is not preset if:

● You are not using a standard graphics adapter.

You are not using a preset mode.

It this occurs, you may need to readjust the parameters of the monitor screen by using the on-screen display or HP Display Assistant software. Your changes can be made to any or all of these modes and saved in memory. The monitor automatically stores the new setting, then recognizes the new mode just as it does a preset mode. In addition to the 15 factory present modes, there are four user modes that can be entered and stored.

Energy Saver Feature

When the monitor is in its normal operating mode, the monitor uses less than 40 watts of power and the

Power light is green.

The monitor also supports a reduced power state. The reduced power state will be entered into if the monitor detects the absence of either the horizontal sync signal and/or the vertical sync signal. Upon detecting the absence of these signals, the monitor screen is blanked, the backlight is turned off, and the power light is turned amber. When the monitor is in the reduced power state, the monitor will utilize less than 2 watts of power. There is a brief warm up period before the monitor will return to its normal operating mode.

Refer to the computer manual for instructions on setting energy saver features (sometimes called power management features).

NOTE:

The above power saver feature only works when connected to computers that have energy saver features.

By selecting the settings in the monitor's Energy Saver utility, you can also program the monitor to enter into the reduced power state at a predetermined time. When the monitor's Energy Saver utility causes the monitor to enter the reduced power state, the power light blinks amber.

D LCD Monitor Quality and Pixel Policy

The TFT monitor uses high-precision technology, manufactured according to HP 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. These imperfections are caused by one or more defective pixels or sub-pixels.

A pixel consists of one red, one green, and one blue sub-pixel.

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 sub-pixel (dot defect) is less visible than a defective whole pixel and is small and only visible on a specific background.

To locate defective pixels, the monitor should be viewed under normal operating conditions, in normal operating mode at a supported resolution and refresh rate, from a distance of approximately 50 cm (20 in).

HP expects that, over time, the industry will continue to improve its ability to produce LCDs with fewer cosmetic imperfections and HP will adjust guidelines as improvements are made.
