Important Precautions
To Prevent Fire or Hazards:
Always turn the monitor OFF if you leave the room for more than a short period
of time. Never leave the monitor ON when leaving the house.
Keep children from dropping or pushing objects into the monitor's cabinet
openings. Some internal parts carry hazardous voltages.
Do not add accessories that have not been designed for this monitor.
During a lightning storm or when the monitor is to be left unattended for an
extended period of time, unplug it from the wall outlet.
Do not bring magnetic devices such as magnets or motors near the picture
tube.

Do not allow anything to rest upon or roll over the power cord, and do not place
the monitor where the power cord is subject to damage.
Do not use this monitor near water such as near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen
sink, laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool.
Monitors are provided with ventilation openings in the cabinet to allow the release
of heat generated during operation. If these openings are blocked, built-up heat
can cause failures which may result in a fire hazard. Therefore, NEVER:
Block the bottom ventilation slots by placing the monitor on a bed, sofa, rug,
etc.
Place the monitor in a built-in enclosure unless proper ventilation is provided.
Cover the openings with cloth or other material.
Place the monitor near or over a radiator or heat source.
Do not install the monitor in a dusty area. It can cause fire.
On Cleaning
Unplug the monitor before cleaning the face of the monitor screen.
Use a slightly damp (not wet) cloth. Do not use an aerosol directly on the
monitor screen because overspray may cause electrical shock.
On Repacking
Do not throw away the carton and packing materials. They make an ideal
container in which to transport the unit. When shipping the unit to another
location, repack it in its original material.

Troubleshooting
Check the following before calling for service.
No image appears
❐ Is the power cord of the
monitor connected?
• Check and see if the power cord is connected properly to
the power outlet.
❐ Is the power indicator light
on?
• Press the Power button.
❐ Is the power on and the
power indicator green?
• Adjust the brightness and the contrast.
❐ Is the power indicator
flickering?
• If the monitor is in power saving mode, try moving the
mouse or pressing any key on the keyboard to bring up
the screen.
❐ Do you see an "OUT OF
FREQUENCY" message
on the screen?
• This message appears when the signal from the PC
(video card) is out of horizontal or vertical frequency range
of the monitor. See the 'Specifications' section of this
manual and configure your monitor again.
❐ Do you see a "SELF
DIAGNOSITICS" message
on the screen?
• This message appears when the signal cable between
your PC and your monitor is not connected. Check the
signal cable and try again.
The screen is flickering.
❐ Is the vertical frequency
less than 70Hz or is your
monitor set to the
interlaced mode?
• Set the vertical frequency to 72Hz or higher, and
consult the video card user manual for instructions on
converting to a non-interlaced mode.
(You can set this option under the Display icon of the
Control Panel.)
❐ Do you have any
magnetic material such
as adapter, or highvoltage line near to your
monitor?
• Remove magnetic sources, such as power adapters,
speakers, or high-voltage lines, away from the
monitor.
❐ Do you hear a "~ding"
sound while the monitor
is flickering?
• Use the normal degaussing function. This function
clears the screen and reduces any screen blur that
may occur due to the surrounding magnetic field. The
screen may flicker for about 5 seconds, accompanied
by a "~ding" sound.

Troubleshooting
The screen color is not normal.
❐ Do you see basic
• Set the color depth to 256 colors or higher: use 'Control

magnetic fields, as created when speakers, steel
structures, or high-voltage lines are placed near the
monitor. Remove any such materials from the immediate
vicinity and use the DEGAUSS icon on the screen
adjustment menu to fix the screen.
I see an after-image on the screen.
❐ Do you see the afterimage even when you
turn off the monitor?
• A premature aging of the monitor pixels may cause the
prolonged display of a single image on the screen. Be
sure to use a screen saver to maximize the service life of
the monitor.
I see waves on the screen.
❐ Do you see the wave
directly on the screen?
• This occurs in inverse proportion to the screen focus,
which can be caused by a particular frequency or video
card. Brighten the screen and use the 'MOIRE' icon on
the screen adjustment menu to adjust the screen.
Have you installed the monitor driver?
❐ Have you installed the
monitor driver?
• Be sure to install the monitor driver from the monitor driver
