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.

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 • Set the Monitor to power off with the PC Display Properties Power Scheme. • 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. 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. • The best way to protect your monitor from Image retention is to turn the Power off, or set your PC or System to operate a Screen Saver Program when you are not using it. If these guidelines are not followed, it may affect your warranty. Apply the Screen Pixel function on Product • Apply the Screen Pixel function - Symptom: Dot with Black Color move up and down. • Apply the Screen Bar function - Symptom: Horizontal / Vertical Bar with Black Color move up and down.

The distance be- Appendix tween 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 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).
