Self-Test Feature Check
Self-Test Feature Check | Warning Messages | Environment | Useful Tips
Your monitor provides a self test feature that allows you to check whether your monitor is
functioning properly.
Self-Test Feature Check
1. Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer.
3. Turn on the monitor.
If the monitor is functioning properly, you will see a box in the illustration below.
This box appears during normal operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or
damaged.
4. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the
monitor.
If your monitor screen remains blank after using the previous procedure, check your video
controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.
Warning Messages
If there is something wrong with the input signal, a message appears on the screen or the
screen goes blank although the power indicator LED is still on. The message may indicate
that the monitor is out of scan range or that you need to check the signal cable.
Environment
The location and the position of the monitor may influence the quality and other
features of the monitor.
1. If there are any sub woofer speakers near the monitor, unplug and relocate the woofer
to another room.
2. Remove all electronic devices such as radios, fans, clocks and telephones that are
within 3 feet (one meter) of the monitor.
Useful Tips
z
z
A monitor recreates visual signals received from the computer. Therefore, if there is trouble with
the computer or the video card, this can cause the monitor to become blank, have poor coloring,
noise, Video mode not supported, etc. In this case, first check the source of the problem, and
then contact the Service Center or your dealer.
Judging the monitor's working condition
If there is no image on the screen or a "Not Optimum Mode","Recommended Mode 1440 X
900 60 Hz" message comes up, disconnect the cable from the computer while the monitor is still
powered on.
{ If there is a message coming up on the screen or if the screen goes white, this means the
monitor is in working condition.
{ In this case, check the computer for trouble.

Terms
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
Non-Interlace 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 1440 X 900 , this means the screen is composed of 1440
horizontal dots (horizontal resolution) and 900 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: 1440 X 900
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
3,888,000.
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
