Safety and Maintenance Guidelines
Important Safety Information
A power cord is included with the 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 the
monitor, refer to the Power Cord Set Requirements on page 28 in Appendix C.
WARNING! To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the equipment:
• Do not disable the power cord grounding feature. The grounding plug is an important safety feature.
• Plug the power cord in a grounded (earthed) outlet that is easily accessible at all times.
• Disconnect power from the product by unplugging the power cord from the electrical outlet.
For your safety, do not place anything on power cords or cables. Arrange them so that no one may
accidentally step on or trip over them. Do not pull on a cord or cable. When unplugging from the electrical
outlet, grasp the cord by the plug.
To reduce the risk of serious injury, read the Safety and Comfort Guide. It describes proper workstation,
setup, posture, and health and work habits for computer users, and provides important electrical and
mechanical safety information. This guide is located on the Web at http://www.hp.com/ergo and/or on
the documentation CD, if one is included with the monitor.
CAUTION: For the protection of the monitor, as well as the computer, connect all power cords for the
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 the equipment, if
surge protection fails.

Maintenance Guidelines
To enhance the performance and extend the life of the monitor:
●
Do not open the monitor cabinet or attempt to service this product yourself. Adjust only those
controls that are covered in the operating instructions. If the monitor is not operating properly or
has been dropped or damaged, contact an authorized HP 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 the 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 the monitor off when not in use. You can substantially increase the life expectancy of the
monitor by using a screen saver program and turning off the monitor when not in use.
NOTE:
Monitors with a “burned-in image” are not covered under the HP warranty.
●
Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation. These openings must not be blocked
or covered. Never push objects of any kind into cabinet slots or other openings.
●
Do not drop the monitor or place it on an unstable surface.
●
Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not walk on the cord.
●
Keep the monitor in a well-ventilated area, away from excessive light, heat or moisture.
●
When removing the monitor stand, you must lay the monitor face down on a soft area to prevent
it from getting scratched, defaced, or broken.
Cleaning the Monitor
1.
Turn off the monitor and unplug the power cord from the back of the unit.
2.
Dust the monitor by wiping the screen and the cabinet with a soft, clean antistatic cloth.
3.
For more difficult cleaning situations, use a 50/50 mix of water and Isopropyl alcohol.
CAUTION: Spray the cleaner onto a cloth and use the damp cloth to gently wipe the screen surface.
Never spray the cleaner directly on the screen surface. It may run behind the bezel and damage the
electronics.
CAUTION: Do not use cleaners that contain any petroleum based materials such as benzene, thinner,
or any volatile substance to clean the monitor screen or cabinet. These chemicals may damage the
monitor.
Shipping the Monitor
Keep the original packing box in a storage area. You may need it later if you move or ship the monitor.

Operating the Monitor
Software and Utilities
The CD that comes with the monitor contains files you can install on the computer:
●
an .INF (Information) file
●
an .ICM (Image Color Matching) file
●
auto-adjustment pattern utility
●
additional software for the monitor model
NOTE: If the monitor does not include a CD, the .INF and .ICM files can be downloaded from the HP

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 Microsoft 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.
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. This file is activated
from within graphics programs that support this feature.
NOTE: The ICM color profile is written in accordance with the International Color Consortium (ICC)
Profile Format specification.

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.
It 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 factory preset modes, there are 10 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 28 watts.
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 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 the computer manual for instructions on setting energy saver features (sometimes called power
management features).
NOTE: The above power saver feature only works when connected to computers that have energy
saver features.
By selecting the 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.
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 (20
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.
