CD Software and Utilities
The CD included with this monitor contains two files you can install
on your computer:
■
An .INF (Information) file
■
An .ICM (Image Color Matching) file
This CD also contains the Auto-Adjustment utility. This single pattern
program helps improve the picture quality of your VGA input flat
panel monitor. See “Using the Auto-Adjustment Function.”
Adobe Acrobat Reader® is supplied on this CD and can be
installed from the menu.
The Information File
This monitor is Windows Plug and Play compatible and the
monitor will work correctly without installing the .INF file. The .INF
file (Information file) enables the computer to communicate with the
monitor and use all the monitor features. The .INF file defines
monitor resources used by Microsoft Windows® operating systems
to ensure monitor compatibility with your computer’s graphics
adapter.
Monitor Plug and Play compatibility requires that the computer’s
graphics 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. You may have to install the .INF file
from the CD if these conditions are not met.
User’s Guide

matching from monitor screen to printer, or from scanner to the
monitor screen. The .ICM files contain a monitor color system
profile. These files are activated from within graphics programs
that support this feature.
ICM color profile is written in accordance with the
✎ The
International Color Consortium (ICC) Profile Format Specification.

Adjusting Screen Quality
The Auto-adjustment feature automatically fine-tunes the image
quality for display size, position, clock, and phase each time a
new video mode is displayed. For more precise adjustments, run
the Auto-Adjust software on the CD. See “Using the
Auto-Adjustment Function”.
If additional image quality improvement is desired, use the Clock
and Phase controls of the monitor to fine-tune the image. See
“Optimizing Analog Video”.
Optimizing Analog Video
This monitor contains advanced circuitry that allows the flat panel
screen to function as a standard analog monitor. Two controls in
the Advanced Menu OSD (On-Screen Display) can be adjusted to
improve analog image performance:
■
Clock — Increase or decrease the value to minimize any
vertical bars or stripes visible on the screen background.
■
Clock Phase — Increase or decrease the value to minimize
video distortion or video jitter.
Use these controls only when the auto-adjust function does not
provide a satisfactory monitor image in analog mode.
To obtain the best results:
1. Allow the monitor to warm up for 20 minutes before adjusting.
2. Display the adjustment pattern application provided on
the CD.
3. Access the Advanced Menu OSD; select Image Control.
4. Set the main Clock correctly first, since the Clock Phase
settings depend on the main Clock setting.
❏
When adjusting the Clock and Clock Phase values, if the
monitor images become distorted, continue adjusting the
values until the distortion disappears.
To restore the factory settings, access the Advanced Menu OSD,
select Factory Reset, and select Yes.

LCD Monitor Quality and Pixel Policy
The FP9419 LCD Monitor uses high-precision technology,
manufactured according to high 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 FP9419 LCD Monitor. 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.
The FP9419 LCD Monitor has:
■
Less than 5 total dot defects
■
0 defective full pixels
■
3 defective bright sub-pixels (maximum)
■
5 defective dark sub-pixels (maximum)
■
No more than two adjacent (less than 2.5 mm edge-to-edge)
and defective pixels
■
No more than two pairs of two adjacent defective pixels
To locate defective pixels, the monitor should be viewed under
normal operating conditions and in normal operating mode at
a supported resolution and refresh rate, from a distance of
approximately 50 cm (16 in.).
We expect that, over time, the industry will continue to improve its
ability to produce displays with fewer cosmetic imperfections and
we will adjust guidelines as improvements are made.

TCO ‘99 Requirements
You have just purchased a TCO ‘99 approved and labeled
product! Your choice has provided you with a product developed
for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to
reducing the burden on the environment and to the further
development of environmentally adapted electronics products.
Why do we have environmentally labeled computers?
In many countries/regions, environmental labeling has become an
established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and
services to the environment. The main problem, as far as
computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that
environmentally harmful substances are used both in the products
and during their manufacture. Since it is not so far possible to
satisfactorily recycle the majority of electronics equipment, most of
these potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter nature.
There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy
consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints of both
the work (internal) and natural (external) environments. Since all
methods of electricity generation have a negative effect on the
environment (for example, acidic and climate-influencing
emissions, radioactive waste), it is vital to save energy. Electronics
equipment in offices is often left running continuously and thereby
consumes a lot of energy.
C–6
User’s Guide
Agency Regulatory Notices
What does the environmental labeling involve?
This product meets the requirements for the TCO ‘99 scheme which
provides for an international and environmental labeling of
personal computers. The labeling scheme was developed as a
joint effort by the TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional
Employees), Svenska Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society
for Nature Conservation), Statens Energimyndighet (The Swedish
National Energy Administration), and SEMKO AB.
The requirements cover a wide range of issues: environmental,
ergonomic, usability, reduction of electric and magnetic fields,
energy consumption, and electrical safety.
The environmental demands impose restrictions on the presence
and use of heavy metals, brominated and chlorinated flame
retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among other
things. The product must be prepared for recycling, and the
manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental policy which
must be adhered to in each country/region where the company
implements its operational policy.
The energy requirements include a demand that the computer
and/or monitor, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce
its power consumption to a lower level in one or more stages.
The length of time to reactivate the computer shall be reasonable
for the user.
Below, you will find a brief summary of the environmental
requirements met by this product. The complete environmental
criteria document may be ordered from:

Environmental Requirements
Flame retardants:
Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables,
wires, casings and housings. Their purpose is to prevent, or at
least to delay, the spread of fire. Up to 30% of the plastic in a
computer casing can consist of flame retardant substances. Most
flame retardants contain bromine or chloride, and those flame
retardants are chemically related to another group of
environmental toxins, PCBs. Both the flame retardants containing
bromine or chloride and the PCBs are suspected of giving rise to
severe health effects, including reproductive damage in fish-eating
birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative1 processes.
Flame retardants have been found in human blood and
researchers fear that disturbances in fetus development may occur.
The relevant TCO ’99 demand requires that plastic components
weighing more than 25 grams must not contain flame retardants
with organically bound bromine or chlorine. Flame retardants are
allowed in the printed circuit boards since no substitutes are
available.
Cadmium:1
Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the
colour-generating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium
damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The
relevant TCO ‘99 requirement states that batteries, the
color-generating layers of display screens and the electrical or
electronics components must not contain any cadmium.
1.
C–8
Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living
organisms. Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are
bio-accumulative.
User’s Guide
Agency Regulatory Notices
Mercury:1
Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. It
damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The
relevant TCO ‘99 requirement states that batteries may not contain
any mercury. It also demands that mercury is not present in any of
the electrical or electronics components associated with the
labeled unit. There is however one exception. Mercury is, for the
time being, permitted in the back light system of flat panel monitors
as there today is no commercially available alternative. TCO aims
on removing this exception when a mercury-free alternative is
available.
CFCs (freons):
The relevant TCO ‘99 requirement states that neither CFCs nor
HCFCs may be used during the manufacture and assembly of the
product. CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed
circuit boards. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the
ozone layer in the stratosphere, causing increased reception on
earth of ultraviolet light with e.g. increased risks of skin cancer
(malignant melanoma) as a consequence.
Lead:1
