Safety Precautions and Maintenance

FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE, PLEASE NOTE

THE FOLLOWING WHEN SETTING UP AND

USING THE LCD COLOUR MONITOR:

DO NOT OPEN THE MONITOR. There are no user serviceable parts inside and opening or removing covers may expose

you to dangerous shock hazards or other risks. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

• Do not spill any liquids into the cabinet or use your monitor near water.

• Do not insert objects of any kind into the cabinet slots, as they may touch dangerous voltage points, which can be harmful or fatal or may cause electric shock, fire or equipment failure.

• Do not place any heavy objects on the power cord. Damage to the cord may cause shock or fire.

• Do not place this product on a sloping or unstable cart, stand or table, as the monitor may fall, causing serious damage to the monitor.

• Do not place any objects onto the monitor and do not use the monitor outdoors.

• The inside of the fluorescent tube located within the LCD monitor contains mercury.

Please follow the bylaws or rules of your municipality to dispose of the tube properly.

• Do not bend power cord.

• Do not use monitor in high temperatured, humid, dusty, or oily areas.

• Do not cover vent on monitor.

• If monitor or glass is broken, do not come in contact with the liquid crystal and handle with care.

Immediately unplug your monitor from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:

When the power supply cord or plug is damaged.

• If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the monitor.

• If the monitor has been exposed to rain or water.

• If the monitor has been dropped or the cabinet damaged.

• If the monitor does not operate normally by following operating instructions.

Allow adequate ventilation around the monitor so that heat can properly dissipate. Do not block ventilated openings or place the monitor near a radiator or other heat sources. Do not put anything on top of monitor.

CAUTION

• The power cable connector is the primary means of detaching the system from the power supply. The monitor should be installed close to a power outlet which is easily accessible.

• Handle with care when transporting. Save packaging for transporting.

Image Persistence: Image persistence is when a residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the screen.

Unlike CRT monitors, LCD monitors’ image persistence is not permanent, but constant images being displayed for a long period of time should be avoided.

To alleviate image persistence, turn off the monitor for as long as the previous image was displayed. For example, if an image was on the monitor for one hour and a residual image remains, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to erase the image.

NOTE: As with all personal display devices, NEC DISPLAY SOLUTIONS recommends using a moving screen saver at regular

intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not in use.

English-13

CORRECT PLACEMENT AND ADJUSTMENT OF THE MONITOR CAN

REDUCE EYE, SHOULDER AND NECK FATIGUE. CHECK THE

FOLLOWING WHEN YOU POSITION THE MONITOR:

• For optimum performance, allow 20 minutes for warm-up.

• Adjust the monitor height so that the top of the screen is at or slightly below eye level.

Your eyes should look slightly downward when viewing the middle of the screen.

• Position your monitor no closer than 40 cm and no further away than 70 cm from your eyes. The optimal distance is 50 cm.

• Rest your eyes periodically by focusing on an object at least 20 feet away. Blink often.

• Position the monitor at a 90° angle to windows and other light sources to minimize glare and reflections. Adjust the monitor tilt so that ceiling lights do not reflect on your screen.

• If reflected light makes it hard for you to see your screen, use an anti-glare filter.

• Clean the LCD monitor surface with a lint-free, non-abrasive cloth. Avoid using any cleaning solution or glass cleaner!

• Adjust the monitor’s brightness and contrast controls to enhance readability.

• Use a document holder placed close to the screen.

• Position whatever you are looking at most of the time (the screen or reference material) directly in front of you to minimize turning your head while you are typing.

• Avoid displaying fixed patterns on the monitor for long periods of time to avoid image persistence (after-image effects).

• Get regular eye checkups.

Ergonomics

To realize the maximum ergonomics benefits, we recommend the following:

• Adjust the Brightness until the background raster disappears.

• Do not position the Contrast control to its maximum setting.

• Use the preset Size and Position controls with standard signals.

• Use the preset Colour Setting.

• Use non-interlaced signals with a vertical refresh rate more than 60 Hz.

• Do not use primary colour blue on a dark background, as it is difficult to see and may produce eye fatigue to insufficient contrast.

Cleaning the LCD Panel

• When the liquid crystal panel is stained with dust or dirt, please wipe with soft cloth gently.

This is normal and necessary for all current flat panel technologies when displaying non-native resolutions full screen. In flat panel technologies, each dot on the screen is actually one pixel, so to expand resolutions to full screen, an interpolation of the resolution must be done.

Features

Ambix3 Technology: Triple input technology allowing up to 3 input sources to be connected to a single monitor. The DVI-I connector supports both analog and digital input signals. Legacy analog input is supported using a traditional 15-pin VGA connector. Ambix3 provides traditional technology compatibility for analog as well as DVI-based digital compatibility for digital inputs. DVI-based digital interfaces include

DVI-D, DFP and P&D.

DVI-I: The integrated interface ratified by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG) that allows both digital and analog connectors off of one port. The “I” stands for integration for both digital and analog, The digital portion is DVI-based.

DVI-D: The digital-only subset of DVI ratified by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG) for digital connections between computers and displays. As a digital-only connector, analog support is not provided off a DVI-D connector. As a DVI-based digital only connection, only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between DVI-D and other DVI-based digital connectors such as DFP and P&D.

DFP (Digital Flat Panel): An all-digital interface for flat panel monitors which is signal compatible with DVI. As a DVI-based digital only connection, only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between DFP and other DVI-based digital connectors such as DVI and P&D.

P&D (Plug and Display): The VESA standard for digital flat panel monitor interfaces. It is more robust than DFP since it allows for other options off a signal connector (options like USB, analog video and IEEE-1394-995). The VESA committe has recognized that DFP is a subset of P&D. As a DVI-based connector (for the digital input pins), only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between P&D and other

DVI-based digital connector such as DVI and DFP.

Pivoting Stand: Allows users to adjust the monitor to the orientation that best fits their application, either Landscape orientation for wide documents, or portrait orientation for the ability to preview a full page on one screen at one time. The Portrait orientation is also perfect for full screen video conferencing.

Reduced Footprint: Provides the ideal solution for environments requiring superior image quality but with size and weight limitations. The monitor’s small footprint and low weight allow it to be moved or transported easily from one location to another.

Color Control Systems: Allows you to adjust the colours on your screen and customize the colour accuracy of your monitor to a variety of standards.

OmniColor: Combines Six-axis colour control and the sRGB standard. Six-axis colour control permits colour adjustments via six axes (R, G,

B, C, M and Y) rather than through the three axes (R, G and B) previously available. The sRGB standard provides the monitor with a uniform colour profile. This assures that the colours displayed on the monitor are exactly the same as on the colour printout (with sRGB supporting operating system and sRGB printer). This allows you to adjust the colours on your screen and customise the colour accuracy of your monitor to a variety of standards.

OSM (On-Screen Manager) Controls: Allow you to quickly and easily adjust all elements of your screen image via simple to use on-screen menus.

ErgoDesign Features: Enhance human ergonomics to improve the working environment, protect the health of the user and save money.

Examples include OSM controls for quick and easy image adjustments, tilt base for preferred angle of vision, small footprint and compliance with MPRII and TCO guidelines for lower emissions.

Plug and Play: The Microsoft

®

solution with the Windows

®

95/98/2000/Me/XP operating system facilitates setup and installation by allowing the monitor to send its capabilities (such as screen size and resolutions supported) directly to your computer, automatically optimizing display performance.

IPM (Intelligent Power Manager) System: Provides innovative power-saving methods that allow the monitor to shift to a lower power consumption level when on but not in use, saving two-thirds of your monitor energy costs, reducing emissions and lowering the air conditioning costs of the workplace.

Multiple Frequency Technology: Automatically adjusts monitor to the display card’s scanning frequency, thus displaying the resolution required.

FullScan Capability: Allows you to use the entire screen area in most resolutions, significantly expanding image size.

Wide Viewing Angle Technology: Allows the user to be able to see the monitor from any angle (178 degrees) from any orientation —

Portrait or Landscape. Provides full 178° viewing angles either up, down, left or right.

VESA Standard Mounting Interface: Allows users to connect their MultiSync monitor to any VESA standard third party mounting arm or bracket. Allows for the monitor to be mounted on a wall or an arm using any third party compliant device.

NaViSet: Is a ground-breaking software family, developed by NEC Display Solutions Europe GmbH, providing intuitive access to all monitor setting controls and remote diagnosis via the Windows interface, based upon the VESA standard, DDC/CI. Using a standard VGA or DVI signal cable, NaViSet can either benefit single users or, with NaViSet Administrator, can reduce the Total Cost of Ownership through remote network-wide maintenance, diagnosis and asset-reporting.

CableComp automatic long cable compensation prevents image quality degradation caused by long cable lengths.

No-touch Auto Adjust (Analog input only): No-touch auto adjust automatically adjusts the monitor to optimal settings upon initial setup.

sRGB Color Control: A new optimized colour management standard which allows for colour matching on computer displays and other peripherals. The sRGB, which is based on the calibrated colour space, allows for optimal colour representation and backward compatibility with other common colour standards.

ColorComp: This feature compensates for slight variations in the white uniformity level that may occur on the screen and improves the colour and evens out the luminance uniformity of the display.

Over Drive: Improved gray to gray response.

Adjustable stand with pivot capability: Adds flexibility to your viewing preferences.

Quick Release stand: Allows fast removal.

AmbiBright technology: Automatically adjusts the backlight level depending on the level of ambient lighting.

Troubleshooting

No picture

• The signal cable should be completely connected to the display card/computer.

• The display card should be completely seated in its slot.

• Check the Vacation Switch should be in the ON position.

• Front Power Switch and computer power switch should be in the ON position.

• Check to make sure that a supported mode has been selected on the display card or system being used.

(Please consult display card or system manual to change graphics mode.)

• Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility and recommended settings.

• Check the signal cable connector for bent or pushed-in pins.

• Check the signal input, “DVI-D”, “DVI-I” or “D-Sub”.

• Ensure the DVI input mode is set to DIGITAL when the MAC digital output is connected to the DVI-I connector.

• If the front LED is blinking amber, check the status of the IPM mode (see page 11).

Power Button does not respond

• Unplug the power cord of the monitor from the AC outlet to turn off and reset the monitor.

• Check the Vacation Switch on the left side of the monitor.

Image Persistence

• Image persistence is when a residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the screen. Unlike CRT monitors, LCD monitors’ image persistence is not permanent, but constant images being displayed for a long period of time should be avoided. To alleviate image persistence, turn off the monitor for as long as the previous image was displayed. For example, if an image was on the monitor for one hour and a residual image remains, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to erase the image.

NOTE:

As with all personal display devices, NEC DISPLAY SOLUTIONS recommends using a moving screen saver at regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not in use.

Message “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed (screen is either blank or shows rough images only)

• Image is displayed only roughly (pixels are missing) and OSM warning “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed: Either signal clock or resolution is too high. Choose one of the supported modes.

• OSM warning “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed on a blank screen: Signal frequency is out of range. Choose one of the supported modes.

Image is unstable, unfocused or swimming is apparent

• Signal cable should be completely attached to the computer.

• Use the OSM Image Adjust controls to focus and adjust display by increasing or decreasing the fine total. When the display mode is changed, the OSM Image Adjust settings may need to be readjusted.

• Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility and recommended signal timings.

• If your text is garbled, change the video mode to non-interlace and use 60Hz refresh rate.

LED on monitor is not lit ( no green, blue or amber colour can be seen)

• Power Switch should be in the ON position and power cord should be connected.

Picture is not as bright

• Make sure ECO MODE, AUTO BRIGHTNESS, and COLORCOMP is turned off.

• If the brightness fluctuates make sure AUTO BRIGHTNESS is turned off.

Display image is not sized properly

• Use the OSM Image Adjust controls to increase or decrease the Coarse total.

• Check to make sure that a supported mode has been selected on the display card or system being used.

(Please consult display card or system manual to change graphics mode.)

No Video

• If no video is present on the screen, turn the Power button off and on again.

• Make certain the computer is not in a power-saving mode (touch the keyboard or mouse).

Date & Time

Schedule

Adjusts the current date and time for internal clock. You should set this function when you use “SCHEDULE”.

Programs the monitor’s working schedule. Schedule the power on and power off with hour and a day of the week. Also sets the input port. This OSM can’t remove except EXIT.

Using the “SCHEDULE” function allows you to set up to seven different scheduled time intervals when the LCD Monitor will be activated.

You can select the time the monitor turns on and turns off, the day of week the monitor is activated, and which input source the monitor will use for each scheduled activation period. A check mark in the box next to the number of the schedule indicates that the selected schedule is in effect.

To select which schedule to set, use the up/down arrows to move the cursor vertically under the number (1 to 7) of the schedule.

Use the “Down” or “Up” buttons to move the cursor horizontally within the particular schedule. The “SELECT” button is used to make a selection.

If you create a schedule but do not want to use a power on time, select “--” in the “ON” time slot.

If you do not want to use a power off time select “--” in the OFF time slot.

If there is no input selected (“-----” showing in the input spot) the input from the previous schedule will be used.

The selection of EVERY DAY within a schedule takes priority over other schedules that are set up to operate weekly.

Schedules are numbered 1-7. If two schedules are programmed for the same time, then the highest numbered schedule has priority. For example schedule #7 will take priority over schedule #5.

When schedules are overlapping, scheduled Power ON time has priority over scheduled

Power OFF time.

When the “OFF TIMER” is set, the “SCHEDULE” function is disabled.

Before powering off, a message will appear on the screen asking the user if they want to delay the turn off time by 60 minutes. Press any OSM button to delay the turn off time.

Using the Auto Brightness function

The brightness of the LCD screen can be set to increase or decrease depending on the amount of ambient light within the room. If the room is bright, the monitor becomes correspondingly bright. If the room is dim, then the monitor will dim accordingly. The purpose of this function is to make the viewing experience more comfortable to the eye in a variety of lighting conditions.

The Auto Brightness function is set to OFF by default.

SETUP

Use the following procedure to select the Brightness Range that the monitor will use when the Auto Brightness function is activated.

1. Set the BRIGHT level. This is the brightness level that the monitor will go up to when the ambient light level is highest.

Make sure the room is at its brightest when setting this level.

Select “1” in the AUTO BRIGHTNESS menu (Figure 1). Then use the front buttons to move the cursor up to the

BRIGHTNESS setting. Choose the desired brightness level (Figure 2).

Figure 1 Figure 2

2. Set the DARK level. This is the level of brightness that the monitor will go down to when the ambient light level is low.

Make sure the room is at its darkest when setting this level.

Then use the front buttons to move the cursor up to the BRIGHTNESS setting. Choose the desired brightness level

(Figure 3).

Figure 3

When the “Auto Brightness” function is enabled the Brightness level of the screen changes automatically according to the lighting conditions of the room (Figure 4).
