Troubleshooting Guide
Issue
The display you want to control
does not appear on the system
information chart.
Solution
1.
Check the connection of the RS232C cable (check that the
cable is properly connected to appropriate serial port).
2.
Check that another display with a duplicate ID is not
connected. Connecting displays with a duplicate ID can
cause the displays not to be shown due to data collision.
3.
Check that the display ID is within the range of 0 and 99.
(Change the ID using the Display menu.)
For a display that supports the ID in a range of 0 to 99,
the ID should be set between 0 and 99.
The display you want to control
does not appear on the other
Control Info Grids.
Check that the display is powered on. (See the power status in
the system information chart.)
The following message appears
repeatedly.
Check that the display you want to control is selected.
Displays power on or off at different
time from one another even though
On Time or Off Time is set.
Adjust the time on the PC to synchronize the time between the
connected displays.
The remote control does not work.
The remote control may not work if the RS-232C cable is
removed or the program is closed abnormally while the Remote
Control function is Disable. To resolve this, run the program
again and set Remote Control to Enable.
Ensure you select the input source the display is connected to.
This program may malfunction sometimes due to a communication problem between the PC and
display or electromagnetic waves emitted from nearby electronic devices.

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 and the inverse number of the Horizontal Cycle is
called the 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 the Vertical
Frequency or Refresh Rate. Unit: Hz
Information
For a Better Display
Adjust the computer resolution and screen injection rate (refresh rate) on the computer
as described below to enjoy the best picture quality. You can have an uneven picture quality
on screen if the best picture quality is not provided for TFT-LCD.
•
Resolution: 1920 x 1080
•
Vertical frequency (refresh rate): 60 Hz
TFT-LCD panels manufactured by using advanced semiconductor technology with a
precision of 1ppm (one millionth) and 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 any problems.
•
For example, the number of TFT-LCD sub pixels contained in this product are
6,220,800.
When cleaning the monitor and the panel outside, please apply a small amount of water
to a soft cloth. Rub softly when cleaning the LCD area.If excessive force is applied, you
may stain it.
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.
When viewing a fixed screen for an extended period of time, a residual image or blurriness may appear. Change the mode to energy save or set a screensaver to 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.
Information
Power Off, Screen Saver, or Power Save Mode
•
Turn the power off for 2 hours after 12 hours in use
•

•
Use a Screen saver if possible - Screen saver in one color or a moving image is recommended.
•
The Image Retention Free function applied to the product is recommended.
- For detailed configuration procedures, refer to the back page.
Change the Color Information periodically
Note
Use Two different colors
Rotate the Color Information with 2 different colors every 30 minutes.
•
Avoid using a combination of characters and background color with large difference in
luminance.
Avoid using Grey colors, which can cause Image retention easily.
Avoid: Colors with big difference in luminance (Black & White, Grey)
Information
Change the characters color periodically
•
Use Bright colors with little difference in luminance.
- Cycle : Change the characters color and background color every 30 minutes
•
Every 30 minutes, change the characters with movement.
•
Have the images and logo cycle periodically.
- Cycle: Display moving image together with Logo for 60 seconds after 4 hours in use.

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
Appendix
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
Methods
Showing the horizontal lines of the screen from the top to the bottom sequentially is called the Non-Interlace 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.
and
Non-Interlace
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 1920 x 1080, this means the screen
is composed of 1920 horizontal dots (horizontal resolution) and
1080 vertical lines (vertical resolution).
