m Connecting the Monitor to Your Computer
The Epson Professional Series monitor accepts separate horizontal and
vertical sync, composite sync, and sync on green. Epson computers
use separate horizontal and vertical sync signals.
The interface cable that comes with the monitor has five color-coded
cables which you connect to the five BNC connectors on the monitor.
Using this interface cable, you can connect the monitor to an industrystandard, 15-pin, D-type, VGA connector on your computer. (All
current Epson computers have this type of connector.)
Professional Series Monitor

If your computer or video adapter card does not have a VGA
connector, you cannot use the interface cable that comes with the
monitor. Determine the sync requirements of your video display
controller and see the signal connector table on page 18 to determine
which interface cable(s) you need. (See your dealer if you need help.)
Then connect the appropriate interface cable(s) to the connector(s) on
the monitor and computer. Perform only the appropriate steps below.
CAUTION
Before you connect the monitor to your computer, make sure the monitor,
compute-r, and all other peripherals are turned off.

to the vertical line, as shown in the illustration of the control panel,
above.
Using Display Modes
A display mode is a type of graphics adapter format. The Epson
Professional Series monitor is a multi-frequency monitor that can use
industry-standard and user-defined display modes.
The monitor’s microcontroller memory contains these seven factoryset display modes:
Cl
VGA 640 x 350
Cl
VGA 640 x 400
Cl
VGA 640 x 480
0
VGA 1056 x 400 (132 column)
Cl
Super VGA 800 x 600
CI
1024 x 768 interlaced (8514/A)
Cl
1024 x 768 non-interlaced.
You can modify the display settings for any factory-set display mode.
If you don’t want to keep your changes, you can recall the original
factory settings. In addition, you can create and store up to seven
user-defined display modes.
Professional Series Monitor
11
The monitor automatically selects which display mode to use. Its
microcontroller analyzes the signal input (horizontal and vertical sync
pulses) from the computer, checks the seven factory-set modes and
any user-defined modes (up to seven), and uses the most appropriate
mode in its memory. The signal input depends on your computer and
application software.
This section explains how to modify and recall factory-set display
modes and create user-defined display modes.
Note
The monitor accepts interlaced timing rates. However, interlaced modes are
not recommended because they may cause the image to flicker.
u Modifying a Factory-set Display Mode
For each factory-set display mode, you can change any of six display
settings. The table below describes these settings and shows the
corresponding icon for each one. Refer to this table as you follow the
steps below.

(This ensures the monitor is operating in the factory-set mode you
want to recall.)
2.
Turn the selector switch clockwise to any one of the display
setting positions.
3.
Press the recall button by inserting a narrow instrument, such as a
ball point pen, into the recall hole.
4.

The microcontroller replaces your modifications with the original
factory settings for the current display mode.
Note
If the monitor is in a user-defined display mode, the preceding steps have no
effect.
14
Professional Series Monitor
1 Creating a User-defined Display Mode
If you see dramatically misaligned images when you use a particular
application program, you probably need to create a user-defined
display mode. Follow these steps to create and store a user-defined
display mode:
1.
Display an image you want to align.
2.
Follow steps 2 through 4 under “Modifying a Factory-set Display
Mode” on page 12.
3.
To save your display settings and create a new display mode, turn
the selector switch counterclockwise to the operate position.
The microcontroller’s memory can save up to seven user-defined
display modes at once. When it contains seven user-defined display
modes and you create and store another display mode, the monitor
automatically overwrites the oldest user-defined display mode in
memory.
