Precautions
Warning on power connections
Use the supplied power cord. If you use a different power cord, be
sure that it is compatible with your local power supply.
For the customers in the U.S.A.
If you do not use the appropriate cord, this monitor will not
conform to mandatory FCC standards.
For the customers in the UK
If you use the monitor in the UK, be sure to use the appropriate
UK power cord.
Example of plug types
for 100 to 120 V AC
for 200 to 240 V AC
for 240 V AC only
The equipment should be installed near an easily accessible outlet.
Installation
Do not install or leave the monitor:
• In places subject to extreme temperatures, for example near a
radiator, heating vent, or in direct sunlight. Subjecting the
monitor to extreme temperatures, such as in an automobile
parked in direct sunlight or near a heating vent, could cause
deformations of the casing or malfunctions.
• In places subject to mechanical vibration or shock.
• Near any equipment that generates a strong magnetic field,
such as a TV or various other household appliances.
• In places subject to inordinate amounts of dust, dirt, or sand, for
example near an open window or an outdoor exit. If setting up
temporarily in an outdoor environment, be sure to take
adequate precautions against airborne dust and dirt. Otherwise
irreparable malfunctions could occur.
Please note that the LCD screen is made with high-precision
technology. However, black points or bright points of light (red,
blue, or green) may appear constantly on the LCD screen, and
irregular colored stripes or brightness may appear on the LCD
screen. This is not malfunction.
(Effective dots: more than 99.99%)
Maintenance
• Be sure to unplug the power cord from the power outlet before
cleaning your monitor.
• Clean the LCD screen with a soft cloth. If you use a glass
cleaning liquid, do not use any type of cleaner containing an
anti-static solution or similar additive as this may scratch the
LCD screen’s coating.
• Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a soft cloth lightly
moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type
of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent, such as alcohol or
benzine.
• Do not rub, touch, or tap the surface of the screen with sharp or
abrasive items such as a ballpoint pen or screwdriver. This type
of contact may result in a scratched picture tube.
• Note that material deterioration or LCD screen coating
degradation may occur if the monitor is exposed to volatile
solvents such as insecticide, or if prolonged contact is
maintained with rubber or vinyl materials.
Transportation
• Disconnect all cables from the monitor and hold the LCD
display by the body. Be careful not to scratch the screen when
transporting. If you drop the monitor, you may be injured or the
monitor may be damaged.
• When you transport this monitor for repair or shipment, use the
original carton and packing materials.
Disposal of the monitor
The openings are provided for necessary ventilation. To ensure
reliable operation of the set, and to protect it from overheating,
these openings must never be blocked or covered.
• Do not dispose of this monitor with general
household waste.
• The fluorescent tube used in this monitor contains
mercury. Disposal of this monitor must be carried out
in accordance to the regulations of your local
sanitation authority.
Handling the LCD screen
For customers in the United States
• Do not leave the LCD screen facing the sun as it can damage
the LCD screen. Take care when you place the monitor by a
window.
• Do not push on or scratch the LCD screen. Do not place a heavy
object on the LCD screen. This may cause the screen to lose
uniformity or cause LCD panel malfunctions.
• If the monitor is used in a cold place, a residual image may
appear on the screen. This is not a malfunction. The screen
returns to normal as the temperature rises to a normal operating
level.
• If a still picture is displayed for a long time, a residual image
may appear for a while. The residual image will eventually
disappear.
• The LCD panel becomes warm during operation. This is not a
malfunction.
This product contains mercury. Disposal of this product may be
regulated if sold in the United States. For disposal or recycling
information, please contact your local authorities or the

computer or video graphics board that is DPM (Display Power
Management) Standard compliant, the monitor will automatically
reduce power consumption as shown below.

When your computer enters the “active off” mode, the input signal is
cut and “NO INPUT SIGNAL” appears on the screen. After 5
seconds, the monitor enters the power saving mode.
“Deep sleep” is a power saving mode defined by the Environmental
Protection Agency.
Each mode appears on the screen and the screen brightness is
reduced according to the mode. The menu automatically
disappears after about 5 seconds.
Screen brightness and power consumption are reduced as the
mode changes from HIGH to MIDDLE to LOW.
The default setting of the screen brightness is set to “MIDDLE”.
When you select “AUTO,” the monitor automatically adjusts the
screen brightness according to the brightness of the surroundings
(automatic brightness adjustment function). For more
information, see “Automatic brightness adjustment function
(light sensor)” on page 19.
Note
• When the ECO mode is set to “HIGH,” “MIDDLE,” or “LOW,”
BACKLIGHT, CONTRAST and BRIGHTNESS of the menu are
available (page 13).
• You cannot select “sRGB” in the COLOR menu when the ECO mode
is set to “AUTO.”
Automatic brightness adjustment
function (light sensor)
This monitor is provided with a feature to automatically adjust the
screen brightness according to the brightness of the surroundings.
The brightness of the screen is set to the most appropriate level by
setting the ECO mode to “AUTO” with ECO on the front of the
monitor, or in the PICTURE ADJUST menu. The default setting
of the screen brightness is set to “MIDDLE”. Also, when you set
the ECO mode to “AUTO” with ECO on the front of the monitor,
the adjustment bar is also displayed. You can adjust the bar with
m/M. Screen brightness changes according to the level you set.

Automatic picture quality
adjustment function (analog RGB
signal only)
When the monitor receives an input signal, it
automatically adjusts the picture’s position and
sharpness (phase/pitch), and ensures that a clear
picture appears on the screen.
The factory preset mode
When the monitor receives an input signal, it automatically
matches the signal to one of the factory preset modes stored in the
monitor’s memory to provide a high quality picture at the center
of the screen. If the input signal matches the factory preset mode,
the picture appears on the screen automatically with the
appropriate default adjustments.
If input signals do not match one of the factory
preset modes
When the monitor receives an input signal that does not match one
of the factory preset modes, the automatic picture quality
adjustment function of this monitor is activated to ensure that a
clear picture always appears on the screen (within the following
monitor frequency ranges):
Horizontal frequency: 28–92 kHz (analog RGB)
28–75 kHz (digital RGB)
Vertical frequency: 48–85 Hz (analog RGB)
60 Hz (digital RGB)
Consequently, the first time the monitor receives input signals
that do not match one of the factory preset modes, the monitor
may take a longer time than normal to display the picture on the
screen. This adjustment data is automatically stored in memory so
that next time, the monitor will function in the same way as when
the monitor receives the signals that match one of the factory
preset modes.
If you adjust the phase, pitch, and picture position
manually
For some input signals, the automatic picture quality adjustment
function of this monitor may not completely adjust the picture
position, phase, and pitch. In this case, you can set these
adjustments manually (page 14). If you set these adjustments
manually, they are stored in memory as user modes and
automatically recalled whenever the monitor receives the same
input signals.

x Environmental requirements
Flame retardants
x Congratulations!
You have just purchased a TCO’99 approved and labelled 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 also to the further development of environmentally
adapted electronics products.
x Why do we have environmentally labelled computers?
In many countries, environmental labelling 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 (e.g.
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.
x What does labelling involve?
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-accumulative* processes. Flame
retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that
disturbances in foetus 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**
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 colour-generating layers of display screens and the
electrical or electronics components must not contain any cadmium.
Mercury**
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 labelled unit.
This product meets the requirements for the TCO’99 scheme which
provides for international and environmental labelling of personal
computers. The labelling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the
TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), Svenska
Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation)
and Statens Energimyndighet (The Swedish National Energy
Administration).
CFCs (freons)
Approval requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment,
ergonomics, usability, emission of electric and magnetic fields, energy
consumption and electrical and fire safety.
Lead**
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 where the
company implements its operational policy.
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 can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and
capacitors. Lead damages the nervous system and in higher doses, causes
lead poisoning. The relevant TCO’99 requirement permits the inclusion of
lead since no replacement has yet been developed.
* Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within
living organisms.
** Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are Bioaccumulative.
The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or
display, 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.
