Safety
National Conventions
The following subsections describe notational conventions used in this document.
Notes, Cautions, and Warnings
Throughout this guide, blocks of text may be accompanied by an icon and printed in bold type or in italic type.
These blocks are notes, cautions, and warnings, and they are used as follows:
NOTE: A NOTE indicates important information that helps you make better use of your computer system.
CAUTION: A CAUTION indicates either potential damage to hardware or loss of data and tells you how to avoid the
problem.
WARNING: A WARNING indicates the potential for bodily harm and tells you how to avoid the problem. Some
warnings may appear in alternate formats and may be unaccompanied by an icon. In such cases, the specific
presentation of the warning is mandated by regulatory authority.

Power
The monitor should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the label. If you are not sure
of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your dealer or local power company.
The monitor is equipped with a three-pronged grounded plug, a plug with a third (grounding) pin. This plug will
fit only into a grounded power outlet as a safety feature. If your outlet does not accommodate the three-wire plug,
have an electrician install the correct outlet, or use an adapter to ground the appliance safely. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the grounded plug.
Unplug the unit during a lightning storm or when it will not be used for long periods of time. This will protect the
monitor from damage due to power surges.
Do not overload power strips and extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
To ensure satisfactory operation, use the monitor only with UL listed computers which have appropriate
configured receptacles marked between100-240V~, Min.5A
The wall socket shall be installed near the equipment and shall be easily accessible.
5
Installation
Do not place the monitor on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. If the monitor falls, it can injure a
person and cause serious damage to this product. Use only a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by
the manufacturer or sold with this product. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions when installing the product and
use mounting accessories recommended by the manufacturer. A product and cart combination should be moved
with care.
Never push any object into the slot on the monitor cabinet. It could damage circuit parts causing a fire or
electric shock. Never spill liquids on the monitor.
Do not place the front of the product on the floor.
If you mount the monitor on a wall or shelf, use a mounting kit approved by the manufacturer and follow the kit
instructions.
Leave some space around the monitor as shown below. Otherwise, air-circulation may be inadequate hence
overheating may cause a fire or damage to the monitor.
See below the recommended ventilation areas around the monitor when the monitor is installed on the wall or on
the stand:

Cleaning
Clean the cabinet regularly with cloth.
You can use soft-detergent to wipe out the stain, instead of
strong-detergent which will cauterize the product cabinet.
When cleaning, make sure no detergent is leaked into the product. The cleaning cloth should not be too rough
as it will scratch the screen surface.
Please disconnect the power cord before cleaning the product.
7
Other
If the product is emitting a strange smell, sound or smoke, disconnect the power plug IMMEDIATELY and
contact a Service Center.

AOC PIXEL POLICY
ISO 9241-307 CLASS 1
th
July 25 , 2013
AOC strives to deliver the highest quality products. We use some of the industry’s most advanced manufacturing
processes and practice stringent quality control. However, pixel or sub pixel defects on the TFT monitor panels
used in flat panel monitors are sometimes unavoidable. No manufacturer can guarantee that all panels will be free
from pixel defects, but AOC guarantees that any monitor with an unacceptable number of defects will be repaired or
replaced under warranty. This Pixel Policy explains the different types of pixel defects and defines acceptable
defect levels for each type. In order to qualify for repair or replacement under warranty, the number of pixel defects
on a TFT monitor panel must exceed these acceptable levels.
Pixels and Sub Pixel Definition
A pixel, or picture element, is composed of three sub pixels in the primary colors of red, green and blue. When all
sub pixels of pixel are lit, the three colored sub pixel together appear as a single white pixel. When all are dark, the
three colored sub pixels together appear as a single black pixel.
Types of Pixel Defects

Bright Dot Defects: the monitor displays a dark pattern, sub pixels or pixels are always lit or “on”

Black Dot Defects: the monitor displays a light pattern, sub pixels or pixels are always dark or “off”.
