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 VGA 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.

What is XPe Client?
An Microsoft Windows XP Embedded(XPe) client uses the Microsoft Windows XP Embedded operating
system. When an XPe client is connected to a Citrix ICA server or another server that can provide the
Microsoft RDP service, data for the keyboard, mouse, audio/video and display are transmitted through
the network between the client and the server.
Connectable Servers
A Citrix ICA (Independent Computing Architecture) Server
A Microsoft Windows 2000/2003 Server where the terminal services and Citrix MetaFrame are
installed
- A Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Server where the Citrix MetaFrame is installed
A Microsoft RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) Server
- A Microsoft Windows 2000 Server where the terminal services are installed
- A Microsoft Windows 2003 Sever
- A Microsoft Windows XP Professional
This manual describes the functions provided by the XPe Client. However, it does not explain
general functionalities of Windows XP Embedded. For more general information on Windows XP
Embedded , refer to Windows XP Embedded Help provided by Microsoft.
Logon
Logon
When the client starts, you can logon to the server by entering your username and password. The
default usernames already configured are ‘Administrator’ and ‘User’, and their passwords are a space.
Auto Log On
The client can log onto the server using a predefined account without the user information having to be
manually entered every time.
Only an administrator (that is, only when you logged on as an administrator) can specify the username,
password, and domain for an account for which ‘auto log on’ is activated. At this time, the password
cannot be left empty.
Windows XP Embedded Desktop
User
When a user logs in, the User Desktop appears, as shown in the figure below. The default icons that
appear on the User Desktop are Citrix Program Neighborhood, Remote Desktop Connection and
Internet Explorer. You can also run this connection from the Start menu. The audio volume icon, VNC
server icon and system time are displayed on the User Taskbar.
When logged on as a user, there are many restrictions that protect the system from incorrent user
actions. You cannot access the system drives and there are restrictions on configuring properties for
them. To configure the client’s advanced and detailed settings, log on as an administrator.
Administrator
If you logon as Administrator, the Administrator Desktop appears, as shown in the figure below. The
default icons that appear on the Administrator Desktop are My Computer, My Network Places, Citrix
Program Neighborhood, Remote Desktop Connection, Internet Explorer, and Recycle Bin. You can
also run the Citrix Program Neighborhood, Remote Desktop Connection, and Internet Explorer from the
Start menu. The audio volume icon, VNC server icon, Enhanced Write Filter status icon, and system
time are displayed on the Administrator Taskbar. The Administrator privilege is required for adding and
removing programs.
Log off, Restart, Shut down
- To log off the current session, shut down or restart your client, use the Start menu. Click Start →
Shut down. The Shut Down Windows dialog box is displayed. Select an operation from the combo
box and click OK. You can also log off or shut down your client using the Windows Security dialog
box displayed when pressing the Ctrl + Alt + Del keys. If ‘Force Auto Log on’ is activated, you will be
immediately logged on after each log off.
- The Client Log off, Restart and Shutdown take effect on the operations of the EWF(Enhanced Write
Filter). To keep the changed system configuration, you must save a cache for the current system
session into flash memory. Failing to do so will cause the changed configuration to be lost when the
client is shutdown or restarted. (In the case of logging off, the configuration is remembered when
loggin in again.) For more information on the Enhanced Write Filter, refer to the Program Help .
Programs
- XPe Client is a client/server-based computing platform. On this platform, the client accesses the
server each time it needs a program and it only receives the user interface screens from the server.
Hence, various programs, such as ICA, RDP, and VNC, which are installed on a XPe Client, are
used to help the client access the server and perform user tasks.
Citrix Program Neighborhood
Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) allows you to use applications on the server through a wide
range of platforms and networks regardless of their basis.
The ICA MetaFrame Server separates the application’s internal logic from the user interface. Due to this
separation, users only work with the user interface on the client. The actual application is 100% run on the
server. In addition, running an application through ICA only uses approximately 10% bandwidth compared
to running it locally. By using this feature of ICA, users can do more work on the client than working locally.
The core technologies of ICA are as follows:
Thin Resource
- Low system requirements needed for running ICA; a computer equipped with an Intel 286
processor and 640K RAM is sufficient. This means ICA can be run on any computer that exists at
present.
Thin Wire
- The default bandwidth required by ICA protocol is 20 kbps, on average. Therefore, even with a
Dial-Up or ISDN connection, a consistent performance is maintained. Any program, however large
it is, can be run stably at a low bandwidth.
Universal Application Client
- The Citrix ICA protocol separates the user interface from the application. While an application is
running on the WinFrame multi-user application server, its user interface is running on the thin
client software of WinFrame. Hence, in any environment, it is possible to run applications fast.
Platform Independent
- ICA is inherently being operated regardless of the operating system platform. Because the clients
for UNIX, OS/2, Macintosh, and Non-DOS are already on the market, you can run Windows
applications on these operating systems.
The Citrix Program Neighborhood is a program that manages these ICA connections. To start the Citrix
Program Neighborhood, select Start → Programs → Citrix → MetaFrame Access Clients → Program
Neighborhood, or double-click the Citrix Program Neighborhood icon.
To create a new ICA connection, double-click the Add ICA Connection icon and follow these steps:
1. Select the type of connection to create.
2. Type the connection name and the server name (IP address or DNS name).
3. Configure the degree of compression for the data to be sent and received, and the degree of
reliability for sessions.
4. To login to the server automatically, enter your username, password and domain. If you do not enter
them now, you will be prompted to enter them whenever you connect to the server.
5. You can specify the color and size of the window to be displayed.
6. If a connection succeeds, the server’s desktop appears on the client. In this step, you can make an
application run automatically.
7. Click Finish to complete creating the new connection.
For more information on the ICA Client Program, visit the Citrix web site.
The Remote Desktop Connection
You can control a running terminal server or another computer (Windows 95 or later) remotely through
a remote desktop connection.
Remote Desktop
-
Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000/2003 Server must be installed on the computer to
be controlled remotely. This computer is called a host.
A remote computer running on an operating system later than Windows 95 is required. This
remote computer is called a client. The client software for the remote desktop connection must
be installed on the client.
You must also be connected to the Internet. A broadband Internet connection is good for high
performance. However, because the remote desktop transmits a minimum set of data including
the display data and keyboard data to control the host remotely, a broadband Internet
connection is not required. You can run a remote desktop on a low bandwidth Internet
connection.
When running a remote desktop on Windows XP Professional, you cannot use the operating
system of your computer.
Enabling Your Computer as the Host
You must enable the Remote Desktop feature to control it from another computer. You must be
logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to enable Remote Desktop
on your computer. Follow these steps:
- Open the System folder in the Control Panel. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel,
and then double-click the System icon.
- On the Remote tab, select the “Allow users to connect remotely to this computer” checkbox.
- Ensure that you have the proper permissions to connect to your computer remotely, and click
OK.
- Leave your computer running and connected to the client’s network with Internet access.
Start a Remote Desktop Session on the Client
Once you have enabled your host computer to allow remote connections and installed the client
software on a Windows-based client computer, you are ready to start a Remote Desktop session.
You must first establish a virtual private network connection or remote access service connection
from your client computer to your host computer.
1. Click Start, point to Programs, and then click Remote Desktop Connection. Or double-click the
Remote Desktop Connection icon.
The Remote Desktop Connection window will open.
2. Enter the host computer name. You can configure detailed settings by clicking the Options button.
3. Options
- General: Enter the login information to connect to the host computer. Enter your username and
password to login to the host automatically.
- Display: The Remote Desktop Connection sends and receives compressed screen data. If you set
the resolution and color quality to the high option, the speed may become slow.
- Local Resource: Specify whether to use the hard disks and ports.
- Programs: Specify whether to display the Desktop or run an application whenever you are
connected. The default is ‘Desktop’.
- Experience: You can select your connection speed, and select and share environmental options.
4. Click Connect. The Log On to Windows dialog box appears.
5. In the “Log On to Windows” dialog box, type your username, password, and domain (if required), and
then click OK. The Remote Desktop window will open and you will see the desktop settings, files, and
programs that are on the host computer.
For more information on Remote Desktop Connections, visit the Microsoft web site.
RealVNC Server
RealVNC (Virtual Network Computing) is a software program that allows you to connect to another
computer on a network and control it remotely. Compared to the Windows terminal service which has a
similar function, RealVNC allows only one administrator to connect to the server at a time. That is, if
another is connected to the server as an administrator, the previous administrator connection will be
disconnected.
In RealVNC, the server and the viewer communicate via the VNC protocol. You must install a RealVNC
server on the computer you wish to control remotely, and a VNC viewer on the computer which
remotely controls the computer where the RealVNC server is installed. Hence, the RealVNC server
program is installed on a XPe client.
By using this program, you do not have to move directly to the client site to resolve its problems.
Instead, you can connect to the client from the server and solve problems remotely. For this reason,
RealVNC is being used very usefully.
Only administrators can configure the RealVNC server properties. To display the configuration dialog
box for RealVNC, double-click the RealVNC icon in the system tray. From this dialog box, you can run
a VNC server and configure a password and various properties. The default password is set to
‘Administrator’. Note that it is case-sensitive.
Internet Explorer
A XPe Client includes Internet Explorer. This program is permitted for all users. For more information
on Internet Explorer, visit the Microsoft website.
Enhanced Write Filter
Enhanced Write Filter (EWF) protects a flash volume from write access and consequently, preserves
the durability of the flash device. EWF provides read and write access through a cache to the client
instead of allowing direct access to a flash volume.
If EWF is activated, data is not stored to the flash. The data stored in the cache is only effective while
the client is operating. The cached data will be lost when restarting or shutting down your client.
Therefore, to store the data written to the registry, favorites and cookie folders, etc., the content stored
in the cache should be transferred to the flash. An error message is displayed when it is not possible
to write to the cache due to a lack of memory. If this message is displayed, you have to deactivate
EWF to flush the EWF cache. The user can double-click the EWF icon on the tray at the bottom right of
the screen to call the EWF Manager. A user can also change the EWF configuration by entering EWF
management commands at the command prompt. This task requires the administrator privilege.
Enable disk write protection and restart your computer
If the EWF is disabled, enable it. If this item is selected, the cache is flushed and the EWF is
enabled. After restarting your computer, the configurations and file system information for the
client are written to a cache. You can also perform this operation by entering “ewfmgr.exe c: enable” at the command prompt and restarting your computer.
Disable disk write protection and restart your computer
-
This item is activated when the EWF is running. If this item is selected, the current states of the
client (saved in a cache) are saved to a flash volume and the EWF is disabled. After restarting
your computer, the configurations and file system information for the client are written to a flash
volume. You can also perform this operation by entering “ewfmgr.exe c: -commitanddisable” at
the command prompt and restarting your computer.
Write the changes to a disk
-
This item is activated when the EWF is running. If this item is selected, the current states of the
client (saved in a cache) are saved to a flash volume. However, the state of EWF will not be
changed. You can also perform this operation by entering “ewfmgr.exe c: -commit” at the
command prompt.
You can view the configurations for the protected volumes by entering “ewfmgr.exe c:” at the command prompt.
In addition, the EWF icon in the system tray shows the current state of the EWF.
The EWF is enabled.
The EWF is disabled.
Windows Media Player
The XPe Client includes Windows Media Player 6.4. With Windows Media Player, you can play audio
and video files on a website.
Control Panel
The Windows Firewall
The Windows Firewall protect your client further. The Windows Firewall allows you to restrict incoming data
to your client from other computers, thus helping to control your client data more effectively. In addition, it
also provides a barrier between your client and network connections reducing unauthorized access, viruses,
and worms across networks.
You can think of a firewall as a sentinel which identifies incoming data from the Internet and other networks.
According to the firewall settings, incoming data to your computer is either permitted or rejected.
The Windows Firewall is, by default, installed and activated on your client. However, your administrator can
turn it off. You can choose and select a different firewall. Therefore, it is not required for you to use the
Windows Firewall. Estimate the functions of other firewalls and choose the best one to fit your
requirements. To install and run a different firewall, you must turn off the Windows Firewall.
You must be logged on as administrator to turn the Windows Firewall on or off. Follow these steps to turn
the Windows Firewall on or off.
1. Run the Windows Firewall.
2. Click on one of these options under the General tab.
! On (recommended) : This is the recommended setting for normal use.
! On with no exceptions : This settings blocks all unwanted access to your client, including all
requests to programs and services selected in the Exceptions tab. Use this setting when you
need to protect your client to the maximum extent.
! Off (Not recommended) : Turning off the Windows Firewall may make your client and network
more vulnerable to viruses and intruders.

The C drive is used for the system. If there is less than 3MB of free space available, the client OS
cannot operate. Therefore, always ensure that there is a sufficient amount of free space available.
EWF can help maintain available space by preventing the C drive being written to directly.
D Drive
If the size of the flash memory is larger than 1 GB, the D drive (that is, the flash memory) is used
as temporary file storage. By specifying the folder path on drive D to frequently used system files,
you can manage the system drive effectively. We recommend using this feature for temporary files
such as the paging file, temporary internet files, and event logs files.
Saving Files
Your client uses a fixed size of flash memory. Therefore, it is better to save files to the server
rather than to your client.
Mapping a Network Drive
The administrator can map a folder to a network drive. To keep the mapping information after restarting
the client, take note of these directions carefully.
-
Select the Reconnect at logon checkbox in the Map Network Drive dialog box.
If EWF is activated, save the changes to the disk.
Installing MUI (Multi-language User Interface)
The MUI Setup program helps you set up languages on the XPe client. In addition, you can delete an
original language pack to extend the available free disk space. If you want to change the default
language, standards or formats, use the Regional Options in the Control Panel.
To add a language to your XPe client, follow these steps:
- Log on as an administrator.
- If EWF is activated, you must deactivate it before starting the installation.
- Click Start and click Run . Type muisetup.exe in the Open box and click OK . A list of languages
that can be installed is displayed as shown below.
- Select the language you want to install and click Install from the File menu. The installation will
begin.
You can delete an original language pack using the Delete menu in the File menu.
This operation deletes the original language pack only and does not delete the copy installed on your
XPe Client.
Recover the System
Overview
The XPe Client provides a recovery function which allows you to revert to a backed up system when
encountering a serious problem. You can back up an OS image which is working normally to USB
memory or the PXE server. You can revert to a backed up image when your client has one of these
problems:
When a system file is deleted accidentally or is corrupted
When the client computer is unstable or there is a problem with a device driver
When problems occur, after installing a new program or device
When the client computer is infected with a virus
When Windows XP Embedded fails to start
How to Recover the System
Recovery Using USB Memory
By following these steps, you can save all necessary files to USB memory, and boot up with the
backed up system on the USB memory and recover the system.
- Perform system formatting for your USB memory in order to make it bootable.
- Save the Windows XP Embedded image and the Backup/Recovery Utility which will be
recovered later to your USB memory.
- Boot up with the USB memory.
- Recover the system using the Windows XP Embedded image and the Backup/Recovery Utility
in the USB memory.
Recovery Using Network Booting
This method is provided through the PXE (Preboot eXecution Environment) server. The PXE sever
provides a client/server interface based on TCP/IP, DHCP, and TFTP. It allows an administrator at
a remote location to configure and boot the operating system onto a client over a network.
- Implement a PXE server.
- Save the Windows XP Embedded image and the Backup/Recovery Utility which will be
recovered later onto the PXE server.
- Boot the client via the network.
- Recover the system using the Windows XP Embedded image and the Backup/Recovery Utility
saved on the PXE server via the network.
For more information, refer to the PXE Server User Manual.

Overview
What is MagicTune™?
Monitor performance can vary due to the graphics card, host computer lighting conditions and other
environmental factors. In order to get the best image on a monitor requires you to adjust it for your unique
setting. Unfortunately, the manual controls available to tune the image often prove to be challenging.
Proper adjustment (tuning) requires an easy to use program that goes through a step-by-step process to
obtain the best overall picture quality.
In most cases even simple adjustments to Brightness, or Contrast require navigation of the multi-level, onscreen display (OSD) menus that are not easy to understand. Furthermore, there is no feedback to assist
in correctly setting the controls of the monitor. MagicTuneT is a software utility that guides you through the
tuning process with easy to understand instructions and back ground patterns designed for each monitor
control. The display settings for each user can be saved, providing an easy way to select display
characteristics in a multi-user environme or having a single user have multiple defined presets based on
content and ambient lighting.
Basic Functionality
MagicTune™ is a software utility that allows monitor adjustment and color tuning using the Display Data
Channel Command Interface (DDC/CI) protocol. All adjustments to the display are controlled via software
to eliminate the need to use the monitor on-screen display (OSD).
MagicTune™ supports Windows™ 98 SE, Me, 2000, XP Home, and XP Professional.
It is recommended using MagicTune™ in Windows™ 2000 or later.
MagicTune™ allows for quick accurate tuning of the display with the ability to easily save and use monitor
configurations that are best suited for you.
OSD Mode
The OSD mode allows easy adjustment of monitor settings without taking pre-defined steps. You can
access the desired menu item to set with ease.

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
Internet in the
Client screen.
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 'Network' tab of 'Settings' have been 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.
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 the following items if there is trouble with the monitor.
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 a service for the main board of the computer.)
If you installed a new video card or if you assembled the PC, check if the installed the adaptor(video)
driver and the monitor driver.
Check if the scanning ratio of the video screen is set at 56 Hz ~ 75 Hz.
(Do not exceed 75 Hz when using the maximum resolution.)
If you have problems in installing the adaptor (video) driver, boot the computer in Safe Mode, remove
the Display adaptor at the "Control Panel → System → Device Administrator" and then reboot the
computer to reinstall the adaptor (video) driver.
If problems repeatedly occur, contact an authorized service center.

Your monitor provides a self test feature that allows you to check whether your monitor is functioning
properly.
Self-Test Feature Check
Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer.
Turn on the monitor.
If the monitor is functioning properly, you will see a box in the illustration below.
This box appears during normal operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or damaged.
Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the

If your monitor screen remains blank after using the previous procedure, check your video controller
and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.
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

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 1280 x 1024 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.

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 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
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 in order 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 'resolution'.
This number shows the accuracy of the display. High resolution is good for performing multiple tasks
as more image information can be shown on the screen.
Example :If the resolution is 1280 x 1024 , this means the screen is composed of 1280
horizontal dots (horizontal resolution) and 1024 vertical lines (vertical resolution).
For Better Display
Adjust computer resolution and screen injection rate (refresh rate) oncomputer 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 : 1280 x 1024
Vertical frequency (refresh rate) : 60 Hz
TFT LCD panel manufactured by using advanced semiconductor technology with precision of 1ppm
(one millionth) 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.
For example, the number of TFT LCD sub pixels that is contained in this product are 3,932,160.
When you clean the monitor and the panel outside, please apply the recommended small amount of
cleaner by using soft and dry cloth and polish it. Let LCD area not to be forced but to be scrubbed out
softly.
If excessive force is applied, you can have a stain on it.
If you are not satisfied with the quality of picture, you can get better quality of picture by executing
"auto adjustment function" in display screen that is appeared as window termination button is
pressed.
If there's still noise after automatic adjustment, use FINE/COARSE adjustment function.
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 moving picture when you need to be away
from the monitor for an extended period of time.

PRODUCT INFORMATION (Image Retention Free)
LCD Monitors and TVs may have image retention when switching from one image to another
especially after displaying a stationary image for a long time.
This guide is to demonstrate correct usage of LCD products in order to protect them from Image
retention.
Warranty
Warranty does not cover any damage caused by image retention.
Burn-in is not covered by the warranty.
What is Image retention ?
During normal operation of a LCD panel, pixel image retention doesn't occur. However,
if the same image is displayed for a long time, a slight difference in electric charge
accumulates between the two electrodes which encase the liquid crystal. This may
cause the liquid crystal to build up in a certain areas of the display. Thus, the previous
image is retained when switching to a new video image. All display products, including
LCD,are subject to image retention. This is not a product defect.
Please follow the suggestions below to protect your LCD from image retention
Power Off, Screen Saver, or Power Save Mode
Ex)
! Turn the power off when using a stationary pattern.
- Turn the power off for 4 Hours after 24 Hours in use
- Turn the power off for 2 Hour after 12 Hours in use
! Use a Screen saver if possible
- Screen saver in one color or a moving image is recommended.
! Set the Monitor to power off with the PC Display Properties Power Scheme.
Suggestions for specific applications
Ex) Airports, Transit Stations, Stock Markets, Banks, and Controlling Systems
We recommend that you follow set up of your display system program as below:
Display Information together with Logo or Moving image cycle.
Ex) Cycle : Display Information for 1 hour followed by a
Display Logo or moving image for 1 minute.
Change the Color Information periodically (Use 2 different colors).
Ex) Rotate the Color Information with 2 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)
Ex)
!
Recommended settings: Bright colors with little difference in luminance
- Change the characters color and background color every 30 Minutes
Ex)
!
- Every 30 Minutes, change the characters with movement.
Ex)
The best way to protect your monitor from Image retention is to set your PC or
System to operate a Screen Saver program when you are not using it.
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.
Our LCD Monitor satisfies ISO13406-2 Pixel fault Class II
