If both the primary and secondary input sources are not recognized, the display will perform two
searches for an active source, each search checking the primary and then secondary source. If
both searches fail, the display will return to the first video source and display a message
indicating that there is no signal.
When the Primary Source selection is set to All, the display will search all the video source
inputs twice in sequence looking for an active video source, returning back to the first video
source in the sequence if no video is found.

3.4.14 Troubleshooting Guide
Issue
The display you want to control
does not appear on the system
information chart.
Solution
1.
Check the connection of the RS232C cable (check that the
cable is properly connected to appropriate serial port).
2.
Check that another display with a duplicate ID is not
connected. Connecting displays with a duplicate ID can
cause the displays not to be shown due to data collision.
3.
Check that the display ID is within the range of 0 and 99.
(Change the ID using the Display menu.)
For a display that supports the ID in a range of 0 to 99,
the ID should be set between 0 and 99.
The display you want to control
does not appear on the other
Control Info Grids.
Check that the display is powered on. (See the power status in
the system information chart.)
The following message appears
repeatedly.
Check that the display you want to control is selected.
Displays power on or off at different
time from one another even though
On Time or Off Time is set.
Adjust the time on the PC to synchronize the time between the
connected displays.
The remote control does not work.
The remote control may not work if the RS-232C cable is
removed or the program is closed abnormally while the Remote
Control function is Disable. To resolve this, run the program
again and set Remote Control to Enable.
Ensure you select the input source the display is connected to.
This program may malfunction sometimes due to a communication problem between the PC and
display or electromagnetic waves emitted from nearby electronic devices.

Run "Auto Adjustment" to improve the picture quality. If noise is still found even after auto
adjustment, adjust Coarse or Fine.
z
Leaving the screen fixed on a stationary image for an extended period of time may cause afterimage
burn-in or defective pixels.
†
Activate power-saving mode or a dynamic screen saver if you will not be using the monitor for
an extended period of time.
z
Unlike CDT monitors, TFT-LCD monitors (due to the nature of the panel) can be set to only one
resolution to obtain the optimum picture quality. Therefore, setting a resolution other than the
specified resolution may degrade the picture quality. To avoid this, it is recommended that you select
the optimum resolution specified for your monitor.

Prevention of Afterimage Burn-in
What is afterimage burn-in?
Afterimage burn-in should not occur when the LCD panel is operating normally. Normal operation refers
to a continuously changing video pattern. If the LCD panel displays a fixed pattern for an extended period
of time (more than 12 hours), a slight voltage difference may occur between the electrodes in pixels that
control the liquid crystals.
Such a voltage difference between electrodes increases with time and makes the liquid crystals thinner.
When this occurs, a previous image can remain on the screen when the pattern changes. To prevent this,
the accumulated voltage difference should be reduced.

The best way to protect the monitor from afterimage burn-in is switching the power off or
setting the PC or system to run a screen saver when not in use. Also, Warranty service may be

Terminology
Dot Pitch
The monitor and screen consist of red, green and blue dots. A shorter distance between the dots
produces a higher resolution. Dot pitch refers to the distance between the shortest distance between
dots of the same color. Dot pitch is measured in millimeters.
Vertical Frequency
The monitor displays a single image many times per second (like a fluorescent light that flickers) to
display an image for a viewer to see. The rate of a single image being displayed repeatedly per second
is called vertical frequency or refresh rate. Vertical frequency is measured in Hz.
E.g. 60Hz refers to a single image being displayed 60 times in one second.
Horizontal Frequency
The time required to scan a single line from the left to the right side of the screen is called a horizontal
cycle. The reciprocal number of a horizontal cycle is called horizontal frequency. Horizontal frequency
is measured in kHz.
Non-interlace Mode and Interlace Mode
Non-interlace mode (progressive scan) displays a horizontal line from the top to the bottom of a
screen progressively. Interlace mode displays the odd number lines first and the even number lines
next. Non-interlace mode is mainly used in monitors as it produces screen clarity and interlace mode
is mainly used in TVs.
Plug & Play
Plug & Play is a function that allows the automatic exchange of information between a monitor and PC
to produce an optimum display environment. The monitor uses VESA DDC (international standard) to
execute Plug & Play.
Resolution
Resolution is the number of horizontal dots (pixels) and vertical dots (pixels) that form a screen. It
represents the level of display detail. A higher resolution enables more data to be displayed on the
screen and is useful to perform multiple tasks simultaneously.
E.g. A resolution of 1920 X 1080 consists of 1,920 horizontal pixels (horizontal resolution) and 1,080
vertical pixels (vertical resolution).

Multiple Display Control (MDC)
MDC (Multiple Display Control) is an application that allows multiple display devices to be controlled
simultaneously using a PC. Communication between a PC and monitor takes place using RS232C
(serial data transmission) and RJ45 (LAN) cables.
DVD(Digital Versatile Disc)
DVD refers to a CD-sized mass storage disk where you can save multimedia (audio, video or game)
applications using MPEG-2 video compression technology.
HDMI(High Definition Multimedia Interface
It is an interface that can be connected to a digital audio source as well as a high-definition video
source by using a single cable without compression.
Component ports (green, blue and red)
The component ports, which identify, transmit and receive contrast signals, provide superior picture
quality to any other video connection methods.
Stereo
Stereo refers to a technology that outputs audio signals via two channels. It delivers 3D sound
experience through separate left and right audio channels over two speakers.
Source
Input source refers to a video source device connected to the product such as a camcorder or video
or DVD player.
480i / 480p / 720p / 1080i / 1080p
Each of the scanning rates above refers to the number of effective scanning lines that decides the
screen resolution. The scanning rate may be indicated in i (interlaced) or p (progressive), depending
on the scanning method.
- Scanning
Scanning refers to a process of sending pixels that form an image progressively. A larger number of
pixels will deliver a clearer and more vivid picture.
- Progressive
In progressive scan mode, all lines of pixels are scanned one by one (progressively) on the screen.
- Interlaced
In interlaced scan mode, every other line of pixels is scanned from top to bottom first and then the
remaining lines of pixels (that were not scanned) are scanned.
