12. Troubleshooting
1. The display you wish to control does not appear in the Power Control Info Grid.
- Check the RS232C connection. (Check if it is properly connected to the Com1 port)
- Check the displays to see if any of the other displays connected have the same ID. If more than one
display has the same ID, those displays are not properly detected by the program due to data conflict.
- Check if the Display Set ID is a value between 1 and 10. (Adjust using the Display menu)
A Display Set ID must be a value between 1 and 10.
If the value is out of the range, the MDC system cannot control the display.
2. The display you wish to control does not appear in the other Control Info Grids
- Check to see if the display power is ON. (You can check this in the Power Control Info Grid)
- Check if you can change the input source of the display.
3. The dialogue box appears repeatedly.
- Check to see if the display you wish to control is selected.
4. Both On Timer and Off Timer have been set but a different time is shown.
- Apply the current time to synchronize the display clocks.
5. The remote may not function properly when turning off the remote function, disconnecting the RS-232C
cable, or exiting the program in an Irregular manner. Rerun the program and turn on the remote function
again to restore normal functions.
This program may malfunction due to problems in the communication circuits or interference from
electronic appliances nearby.

When there is more than one display connected, the settings values are displayed as follows.
1. No selection: Displays the Factory Default Value.
2. Selected one display: Fetches and displays the settings value for the selected display.
3. Selected one display (ID1) and add another display (ID3): The program, which was displaying the settings
value of ID 1, fetches and displays the value of ID3.
4. Selected all sets using Select All: Returns to the Factory Default Value.

Terms
Sync Signal
Sync (Synchronized) Signals refer to the standard signals that are required to display desired colors on
the monitor. They are divided into Vertical and Horizontal Sync Signals. These signals display normal
color images by the set resolution and frequency.
Types of Sync Signals
Separate
This is a scheme of transmitting individual vertical sync signals to the monitor.
Composite
This is a scheme of combining vertical sync signals into one composite signal
and transmitting it to the monitor. The monitor displays the color signals by
separating the composite signal into original color signals.
Dot Pitch
The image on a monitor is composed of red, green and blue dots. The closer the dots, the higher the
resolution. The distance between two dots of the same color is called the 'Dot Pitch'. Unit: mm
Vertical Frequency
The screen must be redrawn several times per second in order to create and display an image for the
user. The frequency of this repetition per second is called the Vertical Frequency or Refresh Rate. Unit:
Hz
Example:
If the same light repeats itself 60 times per second, this is regarded as 60 Hz.
Horizontal Frequency
The time to scan one line connecting the right edge to the left edge of the screen horizontally is called
the Horizontal Cycle. The inverse number of the Horizontal Cycle is called Horizontal Frequency. Unit:
kHz
Interlace and Non-Interlace Methods
Showing the horizontal lines of the screen from the top to the bottom sequentially is called the NonInterlace method while showing odd lines and then even lines in turn is called the Interlace method.
The Non-Interlace method is used for the majority of monitors to ensure a clear image. The Interlace
method is the same as that used in TVs.
Plug & Play
This is a function that provides the best quality screen for the user by allowing the computer and the
monitor to exchange information automatically. This monitor follows the international standard VESA
DDC for the Plug & Play function.
Resolution
The number of horizontal and vertical dots used to compose the screen image is called the 'resolution'.
This number shows the accuracy of the display. A high resolution is good for performing multiple tasks
as more image information can be shown on the screen.
Example: If the resolution is 1360 X 768 , this means the screen is composed of 1360 horizontal dots
(horizontal resolution) and 768 vertical lines (vertical resolution).
Multiple Display Control (MDC)
A Multiple Display Control (MDC) is an application allowing various displays to be easily and
simultaneously operated on a PC. RS-232C, a standard of serial communication, is used for
communicating between a PC and a display.
For Better Display
1. Adjust computer resolution and screen injection rate (refresh rate) on computer as described below to
enjoy the best quality of picture. You can have an uneven quality of picture in the screen if the best
quality of picture is not provided in TFT-LCD.
{
{
Resolution: 1360 x 768
Vertical frequency (refresh rate): 60 Hz
2. TFT LCD panels manufactured by using advanced semiconductor technology with precision of 1ppm
(one millionth) above are used for this product. But the pixels of RED, GREEN, BLUE and WHITE
color appear to be bright sometimes or some black pixels may be seen. This is not from bad quality
and you can use it without any problelms.
{
For example, the number of TFT LCD sub pixels contained in this product are 3,133,440
3. When cleaning the monitor and the panel outside, please apply the recommended small amount of
cleaner by using a soft cloth to polish. Do not force the LCD area but rub softly.
If excessive force is applied, you may stain it.
4. If you are not satisfied with the picture quality, you can get better quality of picture by performing the
"auto adjustment function" in display screen that is appeared as window termination button is
pressed.
If there's still noise after the automatic adjustment, use the FINE/COARSE adjustment function.
5. If you view a fixed screen for an extended period of time, residual image or blurriness may appear.
Change the mode to energy save or set a screensaver to a move the picture when you need to be
away from the monitor for an extended period of time.

PRODUCT INFORMATION (Image Retention Free)
What is Image Retention ?
Image retention may not occur when a LCD panel is operated under normal conditions.
Normal conditions are defined as continuously changing video patterns. When the LCD panel is operated
for a long time with a fixed pattern (over 12 hours), there may be slight difference in voltage between
electrodes that work the liquid crystal (LC) in a pixel. The voltage difference between electrodes
increases with time, forcing the liquid crystal to lean. When this occurs,
the previous image may be seen when the pattern is changed. To prevent this, the accumulated voltage
difference must be decreased.
Power Off, Screen Saver, or Power Save Mode
z Turn the power off for 4 hours after 20 hours in use
z Turn the power off for 2 hours after 12 hours in use
z Set the Monitor to power off with the PC Display Properties Power Scheme.
