A power cord is included with your 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 your monitor, refer to the “Power Cord Set Requirements” section in Appendix C.

Å

WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to your equipment, do not disable the power cord grounding feature. This equipment is designed to be connected to a grounded (earthed) power outlet that is easily accessible to the operator. The grounding plug is an important safety feature.

Å

WARNING: For your safety, be sure that the power outlet you plug the power cord into is easily accessible and located as close to the equipment as possible. When you need to disconnect the power to the equipment, unplug the power cord from the power outlet by grasping the plug firmly. Never pull on the cord.

User Guide 2–1

Safety and Maintenance Guidelines

Ä

CAUTION: For the protection of your monitor, as well as your computer, connect all power cords for your computer and its peripheral devices (such as a monitor, printer, scanner) to some form of surge protection device such as a power strip or Uninterruptible

Power Supply (UPS). Not all power strips provide surge protection; the power strips must be specifically labeled as having this ability.

Use a power strip whose manufacturer offers a Damage Replacement

Policy so you can replace your equipment if surge protection fails.

Maintenance Guidelines

To enhance the performance and extend the life of your monitor:

Do not open your monitor cabinet or attempt to service this product yourself. Adjust only those controls that are covered in the operating instructions. If your monitor is not operating properly or has been dropped or damaged, contact your HP authorized dealer, reseller, or service provider.

Use only a power source and connection appropriate for this monitor, as indicated on the label/back plate of the monitor.

Be sure the total ampere rating of the products connected to the outlet does not exceed the current rating of the electrical outlet, and the total ampere rating of the products connected to the cord does not exceed the rating of the cord. Look on the power label to determine the ampere rating (AMPS or A) for each device.

Install your monitor near an outlet that you can easily reach.

Disconnect the monitor by grasping the plug firmly and pulling it from the outlet. Never disconnect the monitor by pulling the cord.

Turn your monitor off when not in use. You can substantially increase the life expectancy of your monitor by using a screen saver program and turning off the monitor when not in use.

Operating the Monitor

Software and Utilities

The monitor includes a CD that contains two files you can install on your computer:

■ an .INF (Information) file an .ICM (Image Color Matching) file

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

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” in this chapter.

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 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 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/boxes. You may need to install the .INF file if these conditions are not met.

User Guide 4–1

Operating the Monitor

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.

The ICM color profile is written in accordance with the

International Color Consortium (ICC) Profile Format specification.

Installing the .INF and .ICM Files

After you determine that you need to update, you can install the

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

Installing from the CD

To install the .INF and .ICM files on the computer from the CD:

4–8 User Guide

Operating the Monitor

For more precise adjustments, 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

This monitor contains advanced circuitry that allows the flat panel screen to function like a standard monitor. Two controls in the on-screen display can be adjusted to improve image performance: Clock and Clock Phase. Use these controls only when the auto-adjust function does not provide a satisfactory image.

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

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

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

When using the controls, you will obtain the best results by using the Auto-Adjustment pattern application 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.

HP Display LiteSaver (Available with

Select Models)

HP Display LiteSaver is a software application, available on the

CD, that increases monitor life and saves energy. It allows you to place your 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.

Installing the HP Display LiteSaver Software

1. Insert the CD in the computer CD-ROM Drive. The CD menu displays.

2. Select “Install HP Display LiteSaver Software.”

3. After installing the software, click the HP Display LiteSaver icon in the Windows system tray or right-click the icon and select Configure... from the pop-up menu.

Troubleshooting

Problem

“Out of Range. Set

Monitor to 1280 x

1024 @ 60Hz” is displayed on screen.

Possible Cause

Video resolution and/or refresh rate are set higher than what your monitor supports.

HP Display LiteSaver doesn’t turn off the monitor screen

The Activity Extension time has not elapsed.

Solution

Restart your computer and enter Safe Mode. Change your settings to a supported setting (see “Factory Preset

Display Modes” table in

Appendix B). Restart your computer so that the new settings take effect.

The default Activity

Extension value is set to 10 minutes. The HP Display

LiteSaver will wait to detect no input or movement from the keyboard or mouse for

10 consecutive minutes after the Display Off time has passed, before the monitor enters into low-power mode.

For example, if the Display

Off time is set to 5 minutes from the current time and the

Activity Extension is set to

10 minutes, the HP Display

LiteSaver will not actually turn off the display until 10 minutes of inactivity has elapsed, even though the

Display Off time is 5 minutes from now.

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.

If this occurs, you may need to readjust the parameters of the monitor screen by using the on-screen display. 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 preset 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

User Guide B–7

Technical Specifications 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 your computer manual for instructions on setting energy saver features (sometimes called power management features).

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

By selecting 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.

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.

The HP display does not have more than:

3 bright dots.

5 dark dots.

5 total bright and dark dots.

No more than two adjacent (less than 2.5 mm edge-to-edge) defective pixels.

D–1

LCD Monitor Quality and Pixel Policy

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 (16 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.
