Safety Precautions and Maintenance
FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE, PLEASE NOTE
THE FOLLOWING WHEN SETTING UP AND USING
THE MULTISYNC LCD COLOUR MONITOR:
•
DO NOT OPEN THE MONITOR. There are no user serviceable parts inside and opening or removing covers may expose
you to dangerous shock hazards or other risks. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
•
Do not spill any liquids into the cabinet or use your monitor near water.
•
Do not insert objects of any kind into the cabinet slots, as they may touch dangerous voltage points, which can be harmful
or fatal or may cause electric shock, fire or equipment failure.
•
Do not place any heavy objects on the power cord. Damage to the cord may cause shock or fire.
•
Do not place this product on a sloping or unstable cart, stand or table, as the monitor may fall, causing serious damage to
the monitor.
•
Do not place any objects onto the monitor and do not use the monitor outdoors.
•
The inside of the fluorescent tube located within the LCD monitor contains mercury.
Please follow the bylaws or rules of your municipality to dispose of the tube properly.
Immediately unplug your monitor from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
•
When the power supply cord or plug is damaged.
•
If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the monitor.
•
If the monitor has been exposed to rain or water.
•
If the monitor has been dropped or the cabinet damaged.
•
If the monitor does not operate normally by following operating instructions.
•
Do not bend power cord.
•
Do not use monitor in high temperatured, humid, dusty, or oily areas.
•
If glass is broken, handle with care.
•
Do not cover vent on monitor.
•
If monitor or glass is broken, do not come in contact with the liquid crystal and handle with care.
CAUTION
•
•
Allow adequate ventilation around the monitor so that heat can properly dissipate. Do not block ventilated
openings or place the monitor near a radiator or other heat sources. Do not put anything on top of
monitor.
•
The power cable connector is the primary means of detaching the system from the power supply. The
monitor should be installed close to a power outlet which is easily accessible.
•
Handle with care when transporting. Save packaging for transporting.
Image Persistence: Image persistence is when a residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the
screen. Unlike CRT monitors, LCD monitors’ image persistence is not permanent, but constant images being displayed for
a long period of time should be avoided.
To alleviate image persistence, turn off the monitor for as long as the previous image was displayed. For example, if an
image was on the monitor for one hour and a residual image remains, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to
erase the image.
NOTE: As with all personal display devices, NEC DISPLAY SOLUTIONS recommends using a moving screen saver at
regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not in use.
English-10
•
For optimum performance, allow 20 minutes for warm-up.
•
Adjust the monitor height so that the top of the screen is at or slightly below eye level.
Your eyes should look slightly downward when viewing the middle of the screen.
•
Position your monitor no closer than 40 cm and no further away than 70 cm from your
eyes. The optimal distance is 50 cm.
•
Rest your eyes periodically by focusing on an object at least 20 feet away. Blink often.
•
Position the monitor at a 90° angle to windows and other light sources to minimize glare
and reflections. Adjust the monitor tilt so that ceiling lights do not reflect on your screen.
•
If reflected light makes it hard for you to see your screen, use an anti-glare filter.
•
Clean the LCD monitor surface with a lint-free, non-abrasive cloth. Case of persistent
dirt, wipe with cloth permeated by water, ethanol, isopropyl-alcohol completely.
Avoid using any cleaning solution or glass cleaner (ex Acid, Alkali and Acetone).
•
Adjust the monitor’s brightness and contrast controls to enhance readability.
•
Use a document holder placed close to the screen.
•
Position whatever you are looking at most of the time (the screen or reference material) directly in front of you to minimize
turning your head while you are typing.
•
Avoid displaying fixed patterns on the monitor for long periods of time to avoid image persistence (after-image effects).
•
Get regular eye checkups.
Ergonomics
To realize the maximum ergonomics benefits, we recommend the following:
•
Adjust the Brightness until the background raster disappears.
•
Do not position the Contrast control to its maximum setting.
•
Use the preset Size and Position controls with standard signals.
•
Use the preset Colour Setting.
•
Use non-interlaced signals with a vertical refresh rate more than 60 Hz.
•
Do not use primary colour blue on a dark background, as it is difficult to see and may produce eye fatigue to insufficient
contrast.

*1 Interpolated Resolutions: When resolutions are shown that are lower than the pixel count of the LCD module, text may appear different. This is
normal and necessary for all current flat panel technologies when displaying non-native resolutions full screen. In flat panel technologies, each dot on
the screen is actually one pixel, so to expand resolutions to full screen, an interpolation of the resolution must be done.
NOTE:
Technical specifications are subject to change without notice.
English-12
ambix Technology: Dual input technology allowing both analog and digital inputs off of one connector (DVI-I) as well as additional
legacy analog support off of a traditional 15-pin VGA connector. Provides traditional MultiSync technology compatibility for analog as
well as DVI-based digital compatibility for digital inputs. DVI-based digital interfaces include
DVI-D,DFP and P&D.
DVI-I: The integrated interface ratified by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG) that allows both digital and analog connectors
off of one port. The “I” stands for integration for both digital and analog, The digital portion is DVI-based.
DVI-D: The digital-only subset of DVI ratified by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG) for digital connections between
computers and displays. As a digital-only connector, analog support is not provided off a DVI-D connector. As a DVI-based digital only
connection, only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between DVI-D and other DVI-based digital connectors such as DFP
and P&D.
DFP (Digital Flat Panel): An all-digital interface for flat panel monitors which is signal compatible with DVI. As a DVI-based digital
only connection, only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between DFP and other DVI-based digital connectors such as
DVI and P&D.
P&D (Plug and Display): The VESA standard for digital flat panel monitor interfaces. It is more robust than DFP since it allows for
other options off a signal connector (options like USB, analog video and IEEE-1394-995). The VESA committe has recognized that
DFP is a subset of P&D. As a DVI-based connector (for the digital input pins), only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility
between P&D and other DVI-based digital connector such as DVI and DFP.
Pivoting Stand: Allows users to adjust the monitor to the orientation that best fits their application, either Landscape orientation for
wide documents, or portrait orientation for the ability to preview a full page on one screen at one time. The Portrait orientation is also
perfect for full screen video conferencing.
Reduced Footprint: Provides the ideal solution for environments requiring superior image quality but with size and weight limitations.
The monitor’s small footprint and low weight allow it to be moved or transported easily from one location to another.
Colour Control Systems: Allows you to adjust the colours on your screen and customize the colour accuracy of your monitor to a
variety of standards.
OmniColor: Combines Six-axis colour control and the sRGB standard. Six-axis colour control permits colour adjustments via six
axes (R, G, B, C, M and Y) rather than through the three axes (R, G and B) previously available. The sRGB standard provides the
monitor with a uniform colour profile. This assures that the colours displayed on the monitor are exactly the same as on the colour
printout (with sRGB supporting operating system and sRGB printer). This allows you to adjust the colours on your screen and
customise the colour accuracy of your monitor to a variety of standards.
OSM (On-Screen Manager) Controls: Allow you to quickly and easily adjust all elements of your screen image via simple to use
on-screen menus.
ErgoDesign Features: Enhance human ergonomics to improve the working environment, protect the health of the user and save
money. Examples include OSM controls for quick and easy image adjustments, tilt base for preferred angle of vision, small footprint
and compliance with MPRII and TCO guidelines for lower emissions.
New Anti-Glaring and Low Reflection: Glaring impression and ambient reflection was restrained by “New Anti-Glaring and
Low Reflection”. As a result, BLACK level is restrained, and you can get more clear image.
Plug and Play: The Microsoft® solution with the Windows® 95/98/2000/Me/XP operating system facilitates setup and installation by
allowing the monitor to send its capabilities (such as screen size and resolutions supported) directly to your computer, automatically
optimizing display performance.
IPM (Intelligent Power Manager) System: Provides innovative power-saving methods that allow the monitor to shift to a lower
power consumption level when on but not in use, saving two-thirds of your monitor energy costs, reducing emissions and lowering the
air conditioning costs of the workplace.
Multiple Frequency Technology: Automatically adjusts monitor to the display card’s scanning frequency, thus displaying the
resolution required.
FullScan Capability: Allows you to use the entire screen area in most resolutions, significantly expanding image size.
Wide Viewing Angle Technology: Allows the user to be able to see the monitor from any angle (176 degrees) from any
orientation — Portrait or Landscape. Provides full 176° viewing angles either up, down, left or right.
VESA Standard Mounting Interface: Allows users to connect their MultiSync monitor to any VESA standard third party mounting
arm or bracket. Allows for the monitor to be mounted on a wall or an arm using any third party compliant device.
NaViSet: Is a ground-breaking software family, developed by NEC Display Solutions Europe GmbH, providing intuitive access to all
monitor setting controls and remote diagnosis via the Windows interface, based upon the VESA standard, DDC/CI. Using a standard
VGA or DVI signal cable, NaViSet can either benefit single users or, with NaViSet Administrator, can reduce the Total Cost of
Ownership through remote network-wide maintenance, diagnosis and asset-reporting.
CableComp automatic long cable compensation prevents image quality degradation caused by long cable lengths.
No-touch Auto Adjust (Analog input only): No-touch auto adjust automatically adjusts the monitor to optimal settings upon
initial setup.
sRGB Colour Control: A new optimized colour management standard which allows for colour matching on computer displays and
other peripherals. The sRGB, which is based on the calibrated colour space, allows for optimal colour representation and backward
compatibility with other common colour standards.

Image Persistence
• Image persistence is when a residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the screen. Unlike CRT
monitors, LCD monitors’ image persistence is not permanent, but constant images being displayed for a long period of
time should be avoided. To alleviate image persistence, turn off the monitor for as long as the previous image was
displayed. For example, if an image was on the monitor for one hour and a residual image remains, the monitor should
be turned off for one hour to erase the image.
NOTE:
As with all personal display devices, NEC DISPLAY SOLUTIONS recommends using a moving screen saver at
regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not in use.

English-18
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.
Lead**
Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and
capacitors. Lead damages the nervous system and in higher
doses, causes lead poisoning.
TCO’99 requirement permits the inclusion of lead since no
replacement has yet been developed.
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 the manufacturing. Since it has not been possible for
the majority of electronics equipment to be recycled in a
satisfactory way, 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 conventional electricity generation have a negative
effect on the environment (acidic and climate-influencing
emissions, radioactive waste, etc.), it is vital to conserve energy.
Electronics equipment in offices consume an enormous amount of
energy since they are often left running continuously.
What does labelling involve?
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).
The requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment,
ergonomics, usability, emission of electrical and magnetic fields,
energy consumption and electrical and fire safety.
The environmental demands concern 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 plan which must
be adhered to in each country where the company implements its
operational policy. 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.
Labelled products must meet strict environmental demands, for
example, in respect of the reduction of electric and magnetic fields,
physical and visual ergonomics and good usability.
Cadmium**
Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the
colourgenerating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium
damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses.
TCO’99 requirement states that batteries, the colourgenerating
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,
Mercury damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses.
TCO’99 requirement states that batteries may not contain any
Mercury. It also demands that no mercury is present in any of
the electrical or electronics components associated with the
display unit.
CFCs (freons)
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 consequent increased risks of skin cancer
(malignant melanoma).
The relevant TCO’99 requirement; Neither CFCs nor HCFCs
may be used during the manufacturing and assembly of the
product or its packaging.
*Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate
within living organisms.
**Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are
Bio-accumulative.

Environmental Requirements
Flame retardants
Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables,
wires, casings and housings. In turn, they delay the spread of fire.
Up to thirty percent of the plastic in a computer casing can consist
of flame retardant substances. Most flame retardants contain
bromine or chloride and these are related to another group of
environmental toxins, PCBs, which are suspected to give rise to
severe health effects, including reproductive damage in fisheating
birds and mammals, due to the bioaccumulative* processes. Flame
retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear
that disturbances in foetus development may occur.
TCO’99 demand requires that plastic components weighing more
than 25 grams must not contain flame retardants with organically
bound chlorine and bromine. Flame retardants are allowed in the
printed circuit boards since no substitutes are available.

Disposing of your old NEC product
Within the European Union
EU-wide legislation, as implemented in each Member State, requires that waste electrical and
electronic products carrying the mark (left) must be disposed of separately from normal household
waste. This includes monitors and electrical accessories, such as signal cables or power cords. When
you need to dispose of your NEC display products, please follow the guidance of your local authority,
or ask the shop where you purchased the product, or if applicable, follow any agreements made
between yourself and NEC.
The mark on electrical and electronic products only applies to the current European Union Member
States.
Outside the European Union
If you wish to dispose of used electrical and electronic products outside the European Union, please contact your local
authority so as to comply with the correct disposal method.
