LCD MONITOR quick start guide 220TN ii Features What is a network monitor? A network monitor can be used for the same purposes as a common monitor. It also provides the functionalities of most computers, such as an Internet connection, creating documents, editing images, via a connection to the host PC over the LAN. In addition, it allows you to connect an external device (DSC, MP3, external storage media) to the USB port and play music, movies and games. It is a new concept monitor. You also can share the screen being displayed on your network monitor with other users by connecting a projector or other display device to its RGB OUT port. You can use this functionality for video conferencing and a variety of shared tasks. In addition, because Windows XP is installed on your network monitor, you can perform Internet searches and USB memory searches independently of your host PC.

Symptom Solutions The screen does not appear when I switch to the Client Mode. To use the network function, approximately 30 seconds of booting time is required after turning the power on, and a blank screen appears for 3 to 4 seconds during booting. Please switch the mode about 30 seconds after the power is turned on. The client screen appears, but I cannot connect to the server. 1) Check if the Hub port LED to which the LAN cable is connected blinks. If not, that indicates that the LAN connection is disconnected. In this case, connect using another LAN cable. 2) Check if the settings of the 'Settings', 'Network' tab are properly set up. The default setting is "DHCP". If your network uses a static IP address, select 'Use the following IP address' and then enter the appropriate IP address information. 3) Check if the 'User Name' and 'Password' set in the 'Remote Desktop' tab of 'Settings' are the same as those of the host PC. If not, match the 'User Name' and 'Password' of the 'Remote Desktop' with those of the host PC. I cannot access the 1) Check if the Hub port LED to which the LAN cable is connected blinks.

The contents (video, voice) on the server do not play smoothly on the Client Monitor. This is because the data is transmitted over the LAN. Check your LAN connection status. I have connected a digital device such as a digital camera, camcorder or USB memory to the USB port, but they do not work. This model supports USB devices that support removable disk functions without an additional driver installation. Check if the device you want to connect to is a device that supports the removable disk function without an additional driver installation. The file list does not appear. 1) Check the files on the card. If only abnormal files (e.g. 0KByte, broken JPEG) exist, the files do not appear on the screen. 2) The time required to display is determined by the size of the file. Wait a moment. 3) Check if the format of the file is supported by the Client Monitor. If the extension of the file has been changed, the file will not be played. Check if the power cord and the video cables are properly connected to the computer. Check if the computer beeps more than 3 times when booting. (If it does, request an after-service for the main board of the computer.) If you installed a new video card or assembled the PC, please check if the adapter(video) driver and the monitor driver are properly installed. Check if the scanning ratio of the video screen is set at 56 Hz ~ 75 Hz. (Do not exceed 60 Hz when using the maximum resolution.)

Warning Messages If there is something wrong with the input signal, a message appears on the screen or the screen goes blank although the power indicator LED is still on. The message may indicate that the monitor is out of scan range or that you need to check the signal cable. Environment The location and the position of the monitor may influence the quality and other features of the monitor. If there are any sub woofer speakers near the monitor, unplug and relocate the woofer to another room. Remove all electronic devices such as radios, fans, clocks and telephones that are within 3 feet (one meter) of the monitor. Useful Tips A monitor recreates visual signals received from the computer. Therefore, if there is trouble with the computer or the video card, this can cause the monitor to become blank, have poor coloring, noise, Video mode not supported, etc. In this case, first check the source of the problem, and then contact the Service Center or your dealer. Judging the monitor's working condition If there is no image on the screen or a "Not Optimum Mode", "Recommended Mode 1680 x 1050 60 Hz" message comes up, disconnect the cable from the computer while the monitor is still powered on. If there is a message coming up on the screen or if the screen goes white, this means the monitor is in working condition. In this case, check the computer for trouble.
