English
Image Persistence: When a residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the screen, this is called image
persistence. 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.
Maintenance:
a) Before first use of this monitor for diagnostic imaging, an initial calibration to DICOM Part 14 is highly recommended.
To ensure constant visual quality over the life of this monitor, the recommended time interval to re-calibrate this model is
12 months.

Quick screen QA test function
Allows the monitor to display an internal test pattern similar to AAPM TG18-QC, without using an external signal source. A quick
overall visual evaluation as well as an inspection of the gray levels according to DICOM is available with this built-in method.
- If the monitor is connected with a video signal source (computer):
Make sure that no OSD menu is displayed, then press the RESET button for more than 3 seconds or press the RESET button
twice. This will start drawing the test pattern across the screen, then start the DICOM MEASURE routine, if GAMMA in the
PICTURE MODE is set to DICOM. Please note that the monitor must be warmed up for at least 30 minutes for this test to
deliver valid results. The test pattern will hide the image of the signal source.
After finishing the measurements done with the integrated front sensor, the result will be displayed.
The MAX. GSDF ERROR result (in %) is a quick indicator of the gray level quality against the ideal DICOM curve. Depending on
the QA standard which is used in your country, different GSDF error limits may exist. Please compare the actual result with your
local regulations or guidelines.
You may now check the gray levels and the overall quality visually.
To exit the QA TEST mode, press “EXIT”. The image of the video signal source will return.
- If the monitor is not connected with any video signal source:
Make sure that only the NO SIGNAL message is displayed, then press the RESET button for more than 3 seconds. This will
start drawing the test pattern across the screen, then start the DICOM MEASURE routine, if GAMMA in the PICTURE MODE is

English-26
DisplayPort: DisplayPort is designed to be the future-ready, scalable solution for high performance digital display connectivity. It
enables the highest resolutions, the fastest refresh rates and deepest color depths over standard cables.
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.
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 committee
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 with space constraints that still require superior image quality.
The monitor’s small footprint and low weight allow it to be moved or transported easily from one location to another.
Natural Color Matrix: Combines Six-axis color control and the sRGB standard. Six-axis color control permits color 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 color profile. This assures that the colors displayed on the monitor are exactly the same as
on the color printout (with sRGB supporting operating system and sRGB printer). This allows you to adjust the colors on your
screen and customize the color accuracy of your monitor to a variety of standards.
OSD (On-Screen Display) Controls: Allow you to quickly and easily adjust all elements of your screen image via simple to use
on-screen menus.
Plug and Play: The Microsoft® solution with the Windows® 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.
Intelligent Power Manager System: Provides innovative power-saving methods that allow the monitor to switch to a lower
power consumption level when on but not in use, saving two-thirds of your monitor energy costs, reducing emissions and
extending the useful life of the monitor’s backlights.
Multiple Frequency Technology: Automatically adjusts monitor to the display controller’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 you to be able to see the monitor from any angle (178°) from any orientation —
Portrait or Landscape. Provides full 178° viewing angles either up, down, left or right at a Contrast Ratio (CR) of higher than
10:1.
VESA Standard Mounting Interface: Allows users to connect your monitor to any VESA standard third party mounting arm or
bracket.
UNIFORMITY: This feature compensates for slight variations in the white uniformity level that may occur on the screen and
improves the color and evens out the luminance uniformity of the display.
Response Improve: Improved gray to gray response.
Adjustable stand with pivot capability: Adds flexibility to your viewing preferences.
Front sensor: Detects screen luminance changes over time. Used for luminance stabilization, standalone (Self Calibration,
Gamma Adjust, DICOM Measurement) and network (Gamma Adjutst, DICOM Measurement) controlled calibrations and
conformance tests.
Quick screen QA test function: Provides a quick daily visual image quality check of this diagnostic monitor by just using a
button on the monitor.
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection): HDCP is a system for preventing illegal copying of video data sent over
a Digital Visual Interface (DVI). If you are unable to view material via the DVI input, this does not necessarily mean the display is
not functioning properly. With the implementation of HDCP, there may be cases in which certain content is protected with HDCP
and might not be displayed due to the decision/intention of the HDCP community (Digital Content Protection, LLC).
USB 2.0 hub adds excitement to your computing by connecting you to digital cameras, scanners and more.
Human Sensor: Shifts to a lower power consumption level when a person leaves the monitor, saving your monitor energy
costs. When a person comes near the monitor, the monitor will automatically return to normal mode.
This feature detects infrared radiations from human body without interfering with other devices.

Features
Troubleshooting
No Picture
• The signal cable should be completely connected to the display controller/computer.
•
The display controller should be completely seated in its slot.
•
The monitor does not support a DisplayPort converter signal.
•
Monitor power switch and computer power switch should be in the ON position.
•
Make certain the computer is not in a power-saving mode (touch the keyboard or mouse).
•
Check to make sure that a supported mode has been selected on the display controller or system being used.
(Please consult display controller or system manual to change the signal output mode and resolution.)
•
Some display controllers do not output a video signal, when the monitor is turned OFF/ON under low resolution with
DisplayPort.
•
Check the monitor and your display controller with respect to compatibility and recommended settings.
•
Check the signal cable connector for bent or pushed-in pins.
•
Check the signal input, “DVI-D” or “DisplayPort”.
•
Check whether the computer can support the power requirements of the display controller.
•
If the front LED is dark blue, check the status of the OFF MODE (see page 23) or HUMAN SENSING or SENSITIVITY
(see page 23).
Image Persistence
• When a residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the screen, this is called image persistence.
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.
Picture is discolored
• First, use the front POWER button to turn off the monitor. Then use the POWER button turn the monitor on while holding
INPUT (SELECT) and QA (RESET) buttons at the same time. This will reset all color parameters to the factory setting.
This reset will take about 10 seconds and then the factory settings screen is displayed.
Message “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed (screen is either blank or shows rough images only)
• Image is displayed only roughly (pixels are missing) and OSD warning “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed: Either signal
clock or resolution is too high. Choose one of the supported modes.
•
OSD 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 garbled
• Signal cable should be completely attached to the computer.
•
Check the monitor and your display controller with respect to compatibility and recommended signal timings.
•
If text on your monitor looks garbled, change the video mode to non-interlace and use 60Hz refresh rate.
LED on the monitor is not lit (no green, blue or amber color can be seen)
• Power Switch should be in the ON position and power cord should be connected.
Display image is not sized properly
• Check to make sure that a supported mode has been selected on the display controller or system being used.
(Please consult display controller or system manual to change the signal output mode and resolution.)
Self Diagnosis
• The LCD monitor is equipped with the ability to self diagnose abnormalities. When the LCD detects a problem, the LED
on the back side flashes in a pattern of long and short blinks, depending on the type of problem detected.
•
If the LED signals a problem, please refer service to qualified personnel.
USB Hub does not operate
• Check to make sure, that the USB cord is properly connected. Refer to the User’s Manual of your USB device.
•
Turn the Power button off and on again.
Human sensor does not work
• Make sure there is human presence in front of the monitor.
•
Make sure there is no object in front of Human sensor.
•
Make sure there is no equipment which radiating infrared rays in front of monitor.
•
The monitor may not detect a person in a resting state or wearing a mask.
