This chapter contains information about using your
HP Pavilion FX75 Flat Panel Display.
Turning the Display On and Off
Use the Power button on the front of the display to
turn the display on and off. When the display is on,
the light near the Power button is illuminated. The
light is green when the display and computer are
active and amber when the display is in a reduced
power mode.
If your computer supplies power save signals to the
display, the display’s power management features
reduce power consumption to low levels when your
computer goes into its power-saving mode. See
“Minimizing Energy Use” on page 15 for more
information.

If your computer doesn’t use industry standard
power-save signaling techniques, you can reduce
power consumption by turning off the display when
it won’t be used for an extended period. You can
turn the display off even if you leave the computer
running.
Warning: To completely disconnect power from
the display, you must remove the power cord from
the wall socket and then remove the power cable
from the display.
Tilting the Display
The display has a tilt feature that allows you to
tilt the display back and forth to find the most
comfortable viewing position. To tilt the display,
grasp the sides and push the display back or pull
it toward you until it is in the desired position.
The display can be tilted 35 degrees backward
and 5 degrees forward.
Note:
Do not tilt the display by grasping the top edge.
Using Screen Savers
Because of the technology used in LCD panels,
screen savers will not prolong the life of your
FX75 display. If the display will not be used for
an extended period, be sure to turn it off.

Setting the Video Mode
To set the video mode in Microsoft Windows:
Since the inherent format of the FX75 display is
1024 pixels by 768 lines, the display will perform
best when your PC is set to a screen resolution of
1024 x 768. If you use a lower resolution (such as
640 x 480), the image is expanded to fill the screen.

Setting the Refresh Rate
The image refresh rate is the number of times per
second that the image is refreshed; it is also known
as the vertical frequency.
On standard CRT displays, you want to use the
highest possible refresh rate supported by your
computer at the current screen resolution. This is
necessary to avoid screen flickering and to minimize
eyestrain. However, with your FX75 liquid crystal
display, flicker is not an issue. It is flicker-free at all
supported refresh rates.
The table in “FX75 Video Modes” on page 35 shows
the image refresh rates supported by the display
at different screen resolutions. Although the FX75
supports up to 85 Hz for analog video input, we
recommend that you use 75 Hz refresh rates for
best performance.
To set the refresh rate with a standard Windows
installation, follow the steps below.
Note:
Some graphic drivers require different steps; if the
steps below are not applicable to your system,
please refer to the documentation that came with
your video card.
1 Click Start on the taskbar.
2 Choose Settings and then select Control Panel.
3 Double-click the Display icon.
4 Click the Settings tab.
5 Click the Advanced button.
6 Click the Adapter tab.
7 Select the desired vertical frequency in the
Refresh rate field.
8 Click OK.
9 Click OK again.

Minimizing Energy Use
Many computers, including HP Pavilion PCs, support
industry standard power-save signaling techniques.
Power management features reduce the display’s
power consumption after a period of keyboard
inactivity.
When the display is in a power-saving mode, the
screen is blank and the power indicator is amber.
Pressing a key on the keyboard or moving the mouse
restores the image in several seconds. Consult your
computer documentation for information about
setting the power-saving modes.
Your FX75 display accepts the signals for the three
standard power-saving modes – Standby, Suspend,
and Sleep. For any of these conditions, the display
will go into Sleep mode.
Caring For and
Cleaning the Display
To maximize screen life and prevent damage to the
liquid crystal display, HP recommends that you:
N Use the display power management system
(if available on your computer).
N If you don’t use a power management system,
turn off the display when you won’t be using it
for an extended period.
N Don’t press, rub, or poke the display with your
finger or other object.
N Handle your display with care.

Cleaning the Screen
Your LCD module is a high-quality optical device
that requires special care when cleaning.
Warning: Don’t use liquid, aerosol, or abrasive
cleaning solutions to clean the screen.
To clean the screen:
1 Shut down the computer.
2 Turn off and unplug the display.
3 Gently dust the screen with a dry, soft, lint-free
cloth.
Note:
If the screen is still dirty, you can dampen
the cloth with several drops of distilled water.
Make sure the LCD panel is completely dry
before you turn the display back on.

Adjusting the Sharpness Level
Your display has a “smart sharpening” feature that
automatically sharpens the image on a pixel by pixel
basis. However, you can override smart sharpening
by manually adjusting the sharpness. There are
three degrees of sharpening: High, Medium, and Low.
You may want different degrees of sharpening
depending on the current image on your screen.
For example, you may want a higher level of
sharpening for text images or a lower level for
graphics.
To adjust the sharpness level:
1 Press the Select button under the display to open
the OSD main window.
2 Press the + or — buttons under the display until
the Image Adjust function is highlighted.

Adjusting the Phase and Clock
The phase adjustment is set during the Auto Setup
routine, and the clock is automatically set when an
applied mode is recognized by the display. However,
you can change these values if you are using an
unknown video mode that results in less than optimal
image quality. You can adjust the clock to remove
vertical screen distortion. To adjust the apparent

Troubleshooting
My display doesn’t work, even though the
computer appears to work.
N Make sure the power cable is securely plugged
into the display.
N Make sure the display is turned on.
N Check the cable connection between the display
and the computer. The cable connectors must
be pushed in all the way.
The message “Check Cable” appears on
my display.
N Try turning the display off and then back on.
This message appears when the video cable is not
properly connected to the computer.
N Make sure the display power cord is plugged into
a power outlet and into the A/C power adapter.
Check to see whether the outlet works by
plugging another item (such as a lamp) into the
outlet. (If the light on the front of the display is lit,
it is getting power. Try the next item on this list.)
N Make sure the analog video cable is plugged
into the Analog Video Input port on the back
of the display. Or, if you are using a digital
video cable, make sure it is plugged into the
Digital Video Input port.
N Make sure the other end of your video cable is
plugged into the computer’s video port.

The message “Unknown Mode Detected”
appears on my display.
Your computer’s display settings for screen
resolution and refresh rate are set to values that are
inappropriate for your FX75 display. See “FX75 Video
Modes” on page 35 for a table of supported modes.
I don’t hear any sound coming from the built-in
speakers.
N Make sure the audio cable is plugged into the
speaker port on the back of the display and into
the speaker port on your computer.
N Make sure headphones are not plugged into
your system. If they are, sound goes to the
headphones instead of to the speakers.
N If your keyboard has volume controls, use them
to increase the volume.
N Click the Volume icon on the taskbar. Drag
the Volume slider up to increase the volume.
Also, make sure the Mute box is not checked.
N If the speakers still don’t produce sound or if
you can hear only a very faint sound, it’s possible
that your sound card doesn’t support passive
speakers. You need a sound card with amplified
sound output.
The image is very unstable.
N Set your PC to a supported video mode,
preferably 1024 x 768 at 75 Hz. See “Setting
the Video Mode” on page 13.
N Restore the original factory settings by
choosing Restore Factory Presets on the
OSD main window.
N Run the Auto Setup routine. See “Using Auto
Setup” on page 21.

Unknown Video Modes
Displays are designed to work with standard video
modes. However, not all video cards use only
standard display modes.
Your HP Pavilion FX75 display has state-of-the-art
technology which is designed to synchronize to any
display mode. We recommend choosing one of the
supported modes listed above. If you choose an
unknown mode, you will need to manually adjust
the phase, clock, and position.
If you must use an unknown mode, first adjust the
clock and then run Auto Setup. If Auto Setup doesn’t
provide adequate image adjustment, then you must
manually adjust the phase, horizontal position, and
vertical position.
