1.

Setting Up and Using the Flat Panel Monitor

This chapter explains how to unpack the flat panel monitor and set it up with your computer.

The flat panel monitor is driven by an adapter board that is installed in your computer. In some cases, the adapter board and software are installed at the factory before shipment; in other cases, you need to install them yourself.

• If the flat panel adapter board and software have already been installed, continue with these instructions.

• If you are installing the adapter board and software, install them now, using the instructions and CD that come with the adapter board. Be sure to read any documentation or release notes on the

CD for instructions specific to your computer. Then return to this manual.

In addition, see your computer’s documentation (in most cases, an owner’s guide) for any information specific to your computer.

Using the Flat Panel Monitor With a Standard CRT

If you plan to use the flat panel monitor along with a standard cathode-ray tube (CRT) monitor, be aware of the following:

• The flat panel monitor was not designed to be used simultaneously with a conventional cathode-ray tube (CRT) monitor when both monitors are attached to the same graphics adapter board. If you are operating your flat panel monitor from

Setting Up and Using the Flat Panel Monitor

Chapter 1 a PCI or AGP board and have a CRT monitor connected to your system, you may need to use your system’s setup utility to select a primary (default) monitor.

• If your system can use separate, dual PCI or AGP cards, then you may be able to use the flat panel monitor and a CRT monitor at the same time. See your system’s owner’s guide and any documentation provided with the adapter board for more information.

Unpacking the Flat Panel Monitor

To unpack and set up the flat panel monitor, follow these steps.

(Unpacking instructions are also printed on the shipping box.) Save the original shipping materials in case you need to return the monitor for service.

1.

Open the box, remove the top carton and AC power card, and set both aside.

2.

Using the lifting strap that is packed around the monitor, carefully lift the monitor, its base, and some protective foam pieces from the box. Place this assembly on a flat surface.

3.

Remove the top foam support, then lift the monitor from the bottom foam piece and remove the plastic bag.

4.

Remove the protective film from the screen by peeling it away slowly from one corner, keeping the peeled off portion as close to the monitor’s surface as possible. Be careful not to get fingerprints on the exposed coated glass surface. Keep this protective film in case you need to return the monitor for service.

Caution:

The screen is made of glass coated with optical films and is the most expensive component in the monitor. A blow from a sharp instrument such as a pen can scratch the surface or break the glass.

5.

Remove the box containing the AC adapter from the foam packing, and remove the AC adapter from the box.

Also note the 3 mm hex wrench included with the shipment.

Use this tool if you wish to remove the monitor from its pedestal, for example to place the monitor on a mounting arm or wall mount.

You are finished unpacking the flat panel monitor. The next sections describe the flat panel monitor and how to set it up.

and the other end of the AC power cord to a grounded electrical wall outlet or power strip. (The illustration shows the AC adapter and cord for the U.S.A. The power cord for your country may look different.)

Note:

The AC adapter is auto-ranging, which means that it automatically adjusts for different AC voltages from almost any power source (50-60 Hz, 110-220 VAC) without using an additional transformer.

Turning On the Flat Panel Monitor

To turn on the monitor, press the power button on the front. See

Figure 1-1 for the location of the power button. Once the system supplies signals to the flat panel monitor, the LED on the bottom left turns green.

If the flat panel monitor does not light up, and if the LED is blinking yellow, check that its interface cable is firmly attached to the correct connector on the computer.

For additional troubleshooting information, go to Chapter 2,

“Troubleshooting.”

Setting Up and Using the Flat Panel Monitor

Adjusting the Viewing Position

You can adjust the flat panel monitor to a height and tilt that is comfortable for you. You can raise or lower the monitor a maximum of 3.75 inches (95 mm).

6

Chapter 1

Figure 1-3

Adjusting the Height and Tilt

To raise the monitor:

1.

Hold the monitor along the bottom or right edge with your right hand.

2.

Grip the left side of the monitor with your left hand and pull the lever behind the monitor toward you, while raising the monitor to the desired height.

To lower the monitor:

1.

Pull the lever behind the monitor toward you with your left hand and immediately release the lever.

Each time you pull the lever, the monitor lowers one step.

There are 10 stops total and each stop is about 3/8 inch

(9.5mm) lower than the previous one.Repeat this step until you find the desired height, or hold the lever in the depressed position until it reaches the height you want.

To adjust the tilt, hold the monitor on both sides and tilt it forward or back until you find the best viewing angle.

If you want more desktop space or more versatility in viewing positions, you may want to purchase a mobile arm or wall mounting bracket. The flat panel monitor has a standard Video Electronics

Standards Association (VESA) mounting on the rear. Mobile arms are available in many computer stores.

Turning Off the Flat Panel Monitor

To turn off the monitor, press the power button on the front. See

Figure 1-1. It is recommend that you turn your monitor off whenever you are going to be away for more than a few hours; doing so can dramatically increase the life span of the lamps in the backlight of the flat panel monitor.

Also, if your computer has screen-saver and power-saving functions, make sure they are enabled. As with a CRT, the screen saver prevents an image from being burned into the screen. Using a power-saving function helps prolong the life of the backlight lamps inside the flat panel monitor.

In power- saving mode, the LED on the monitor is solid yellow. To restore power, move the mouse or press a key on the keyboard. Refer also to the documentation that came with your computer’s flat panel adapter board for instructions specific to your computer.

Removing the Flat Panel Monitor From Its Base and

Replacing It

In typical operation, the flat panel monitor should remain attached to its pedestal. However, if you need to remove the monitor from its pedestal, follow the instructions in this section.

You may find this task easier to accomplish if a second person helps you. The steps below describe how to remove the monitor from its base.

1.

Locate the 3 mm hex wrench included with your flat panel monitor.

2.

Raise the monitor to its highest position. This makes it easier to remove the screws. See Figure 1-3.

3.

Tilt the monitor forward for easier access to the two screws.

Note:

Once you’ve removed the two screws, make sure that you or someone else is holding the monitor.

8

Chapter 1

Figure 1-4

Removing the Monitor From Its Base

4.

Holding the monitor as pictured in Figure 1-4, use the 3 mm hex wrench to loosen and remove the two hex screws that secure the monitor to its base. Save the screws in case you need to replace the monitor on its stand.

5.

Pull the monitor toward you. You may need someone else to support the base as you do this.

6.

Optionally, fold down the metal tab at the rear of the flat panel, as shown in Figure 1-4. You may need to use pliers.

Replacing the Flat Panel Monitor On Its Base

Replacing the flat panel monitor on its base is the reverse procedure of removing it:

1.

If the metal mounting tab has been folded down, flip it back up.

You may need to use pliers.

2.

With the base and the front of the monitor facing you, grasp the monitor with both hands, and guide the hinge into the opening for it on the base.

Note:

Do not leave the monitor unsupported before inserting the screws.

3.

Supporting the monitor with one hand, insert and tighten the two screws that you removed when the monitor was first removed from its base.

To tighten the screws, use either the wrench originally supplied with the monitor or any 3 mm hex wrench.

Using a Screen Saver

If your computer has a screen saver program, make sure it is enabled.

As with a CRT monitor, leaving an image up without a screen saver for a long time may burn the image into the monitor.

Adjusting the Brightness

Brightness is adjusted by a software control panel. The way this feature works differs between computers and adapter boards. See the documentation that comes with the flat panel monitor’s adapter board or your computer’s owner’s guide for information on adjusting the brightness.

Adjusting the White Balance (White Point)

Your flat panel monitor has a separate and unique system to set the white point of your screen. As with the brightness adjustment, the white point is adjusted through a software control panel, and the way this feature works differs between computers and adapter boards. See the documentation that comes with the flat panel monitor’s adapter board or your computer’s owner’s guide for information on setting the white point.

Specifications for the adjustable white balance range are in “Technical

Specifications” on page 20.

Recommended Use and Viewing Angles

Follow these recommendations to use your flat panel monitor:

• Allow the flat panel monitor to warm up for at least a minute.

• Always have your computer’s screen saver enabled to prevent images from burning into the monitor.

• Turn the monitor off when you will be away from it for more than a few hours. This will dramatically lengthen the life span of the monitor’s backlight lamps.

• If your computer has a power-saving feature, enable it to help lengthen the life span of the monitor’s backlight lamps.

• For best color viewing, the monitor should be between 18 inches

(46 cm) and 28 inches (71 cm) away from your eyes.

• Adjust the monitor height so that the center of the screen is at or slightly below eye level. For the brightest image and most accurate color, view the screen as close as possible to perpendicular (a 90

° angle). See Figure 1-5. (Refer to Table 3-1 for the viewing angle limits.)

In addition, check any documents that come with your monitor’s adapter board.

If the problem persists after following the suggestions below, call your service provider.

No Image on the Flat Panel Monitor

1.

Check to see if the flat panel monitor and computer are turned on. (Press the power button on the front of the monitor.) The flat panel monitor takes about a minute to warm up to full brightness.

2.

Check the color of the LED on the front of the flat panel monitor and look for a possible cause in Table 2-1.

3.

Make sure that the DC power cable is connected securely to the flat panel monitor.

4.

Check that the correct AC power cable for your country (110 V or

220 V) is connected securely to the AC adapter and to a working wall outlet or power strip. (See “Connecting the Cables” on page 4.)

5.

Check that the interface cable is connected securely to the flat panel monitor’s adapter’s connector on the computer. (See

“Connecting the Cables” on page 4.)

6.

If you recently installed the flat panel monitor’s adapter board in your computer, the board may not be installed correctly, or the software may not be installed. Follow the instructions in the installation manual that came with the board to make sure you have installed the hardware and software correctly. Also, you may wish to re-seat the adapter board in the computer to make sure that the board is making proper electrical contact.

7.

If the flat panel monitor was not connected to the computer via the interface cable when the computer was turned on, reboot the computer so that the correct timing table is used for the flat panel monitor.

Chapter 2

Image Appears Too Light or Too Dark

The images on flat panel monitors look lighter or darker when viewed from different angles (especially from highly oblique angles). Check that your line of sight is as close to perpendicular as possible. See

“Recommended Use and Viewing Angles” on page 10 and Table 3-1.

Considerable development has been done to ensure that your flat panel monitor has the widest possible viewing angles without compromising such features as displaying fast-moving video. For more technical information, see “Technical Specifications” on page 20.

Image Is Dim When Monitor Is First Turned On

It takes about one minute for flat panel monitors to warm up to full brightness from a cold start, so at first the image may appear dim or faded. This is because the ambient air temperature affects the start-up brightness of the flat panel monitor. For example, when the air temperature is about 77

°

F (25

°

C), the panel is initially at about 80% of its maximum brightness. However, at 50

°

F (10

°

C), the light output can start out as little as 30% of its maximum.

Eventually, though, as the backlight lamps warm up, the monitor should reach its maximum brightness, as long as it is being operated within the proper temperature range. See Table 3-4 for the operating temperature range.

Bright Dots on the Monitor

Occasionally you may notice some bright dots on the monitor that remain in the same place regardless of the image being displayed on the screen. This is intrinsic to thin-film transistor (TFT) liquid crystal displays (LCDs) and does not indicate a defective screen.

Diagnostic Tests for the Flat Panel Monitor

If your computer has diagnostic tests, they will be explained in the documentation that came with your computer’s flat panel adapter board.

Warranty Service

Your flat panel monitor is covered by a three-year warranty. To ensure full coverage under your monitor’s warranty, be sure to submit your registration card within 30 days of receiving the monitor. Warranty service may not be provided by the vendor of your host system.

Contact the vendor you purchased your flat panel from for information and service.

Returning the Flat Panel Monitor

If your service provider instructs you to return the flat panel monitor, follow the instructions below.

Note:

If you are instructed to return the adapter board for your flat panel monitor, check in the documentation that came with the adapter board for removal and return instructions.

1.

Turn off your computer. Disconnect the power cable from the rear of the flat panel monitor.

2.

Disconnect the interface cable from the computer.

3.

Replace the original protective plastic film over the monitor’s screen. Be sure the plastic film is clean and free of grit that may damage the monitor’s screen.

Troubleshooting

Maintenance, Technical Specifications and

Regulatory Information

This chapter contains information on how to take care of your flat panel monitor, technical specifications, and regulatory information.

Cleaning and General Care of the Flat Panel

Monitor

Handle your flat panel monitor with care. A sharp instrument such as a pen can scratch the monitor’s surface and felt-tip pens can leave permanent stains. Do not place objects on the glass surface,

especially suction devices

(although Post-it notes are OK).

From time to time dust builds up on the surface of the monitor, and you need to clean it to get the best possible image. Follow the steps below to clean the monitor.

Caution:

Only use a soft cloth, either dry or moistened with water. Using other substances, abrasive cleaners, cleaning pads, alcohol, or ammonia to clean the monitor will scratch or damage the monitor’s surface.

Also, do not spray directly on the coated glass surface, because the liquid may drip inside the unit and damage the components.

1.

Dampen a soft cloth with water just enough so it won’t streak.

2.

Wipe the glass surface of the monitor gently with the cloth.
