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” section in Agency Regulatory Notices.
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 into an easily accessible grounded outlet.
• Disconnect the power from the equipment 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 and 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.
Use the appropriate and correctly sized furniture designed to properly support your HP LCD monitor.
WARNING! LCD monitors that are inappropriately situated on dressers, bookcases, shelves,
desks, speakers, chests, or carts may fall over and cause personal injury.
Care should be taken to route all cords and cables connected to the LCD monitor so that they can
not be pulled, grabbed, or tripped over.
18
Safety Precautions
 Use only a power source and connection compatible with 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
power cord does not exceed the rating of the power cord. Look on the power label to determine the
ampere rating (Amps or A) for each device.
 Install your monitor near a power 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.
 Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not walk on the cord.
19
Maintenance Guidelines
To enhance the performance and extend the life of your monitor:
● Do not open your monitor cabinet or attempt to service this product yourself. Adjust only
those controls that are covered in the operating instructions. If your monitor is not
operating properly or has been dropped or damaged, contact your HP authorized 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. Check the power label to determine the
ampere rating (AMPS or A) for each device.
● Install your 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 your monitor off when not in use. You can substantially increase the life expectancy of
your monitor by using a screen saver program and turning off the monitor when not in use.
Note: The HP Warranty does not cover monitors with a burned-in image.
● 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 your 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 your monitor in a well-ventilated area, away from excessive light, heat or moisture.
● When removing the monitor base, you must lay the monitor face down on a soft area to
prevent it from being scratched, defaced, or broken.
Cleaning your monitor
1. Turn off the monitor and the computer.
2. Unplug the monitor from the wall outlet.
3. Clean the monitor plastics with a clean cloth dampened with water.
4. Clean the monitor screen with an antistatic screen cleaner.
CAUTION: Do not use benzene, thinner, ammonia, or any other volatile substances to clean
the monitor or the screen. These chemicals may damage the cabinet finish as well as the
screen.
Shipping the monitor
Keep the original packing box in a storage area. You may need it later if you move or ship your
monitor. To prepare the monitor for shipping, refer to Chapter 2, “Disconnect the Pedestal for
Shipping.”
