Troubleshooting
Self-Test Feature Check
Your monitor provides a self test feature that allows you to check whether your monitor is functioning
properly.
1. Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer.
3. Turn on the monitor.
The figure shown below ("Check Signal Cable") appears on a black background when the monitor is
in its normal working condition though it does not sense any video signal: While in the Self-Test mode,
the LED power indicator remains green and the figure moves around on the screen.
Failure of any of the boxes to appear indicates a problem with your monitor. This box also appears
during normal operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or damaged.
4. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the monitor.
If your monitor screen remains blank after using the previous procedure, check your video controller and
computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.
Video mode not supported
This indicates the display resolution or refresh rate is not properly set on your computer video card.
Reboot the computer in Safe Mode and select "Default" in the "Refresh Rate Unknown" box while
setting Adapter for Display Properties.
Contact the computer dealer or manufacturer for information on Safe Mode Booting.
Refer to Preset Timing Modes (refer to P.28) for the resolutions or frequencies that are supported
by the monitor.
Sometimes the screen turns black without the “Video mode not supported” message appearing on the
screen. This indicates the monitor is set for a frequency out of range or the PowerSaver mode is on.

TFT LCD panel manufactured by using advanced semiconductor technology with precision of
99.999% above is used for this product. But the pixels of RED, GREEN, BLUE and WHITE
color seem to be bright sometimes or some of black pixels could be seen.
This is not from bad quality and you can use it without uneasiness.

Horizontal Frequency
The time to scan one line connecting the right edge to the left edge of the screen horizontally is called Horizontal Cycle
and the inverse number of the Horizontal Cycle is called Horizontal Frequency. Unit: kHz
Vertical Frequency
Like a fluorescent lamp, the screen has to repeat the same image many times per second to display an image to the user.
The frequency of this repetition is called Vertical Frequency or Refresh Rate. Unit: Hz
