Notice for This Monitor
About the Usage of This Product
This product is suitable for image creation, graphics creation, and digital photo processing which require
high-fidelity color reproduction.
This product has been adjusted specifically for use in the region to which it was originally shipped. If the
product is used outside the region, it may not operate as specified in the specifications.
This product may not be covered by warranty for uses other than those described in this manual.
The specifications noted in this manual are only applicable when the following are used:
•• Power cords provided with the product
•• Signal cables specified by us
Only use optional products manufactured or specified by us with this product.
About the LCD Panel
The LCD panel is manufactured using high-precision technology. Although, missing pixels or lit pixels may
appear on the LCD panel, this is not a malfunction. Percentage of effective dots: 99.9994 % or higher.
It takes about 3 minutes (under our measurement conditions) for the monitor display to stabilize. Please wait
3 minutes or more after the monitor power has been turned on, and then adjust the monitor.
Monitors should be set to a lower brightness to prevent a loss in the screen quality caused by long-term use
and to maintain stable use.
When the screen image is changed after displaying the same image for extended periods of time, an
afterimage may appear. Use the screen saver or power save function to avoid displaying the same image for
extended periods of time. Depending on the image, an afterimage may appear even if it was displayed for
a short period of time. To remove such a phenomenon, change the image or keep the power turned off for
several hours.
If the monitor displays continuously over a long period of time, smudges or burn-in may appear. To maximize
the life of the monitor, we recommend the monitor be turned off periodically. Use the power switch on the
front of the monitor to turn it off.
The backlight of the LCD panel has a fixed lifetime. Depending on the usage pattern, such as usage for
long continuous periods, the lifespan of the backlight may run out sooner, requiring replacement. When the
screen becomes dark or begins to flicker, please contact your local EIZO representative.
Do not press on the LCD panel or edge of the frame strongly, as this may result in display malfunctions, such
as interference patterns, etc. If pressure is continuously applied to the LCD panel surface, the liquid crystal
may deteriorate or the LCD panel may be damaged. (If the pressure marks remain on the panel, leave the
monitor with a black or white screen. The symptom may disappear.)
Do not scratch or press on the LCD panel with any sharp objects, as this may result in damage to the LCD
panel. Do not attempt to brush with tissues as this may scratch the panel.

About the Installation
When the monitor is cold and brought into a room or the room temperature goes up quickly, dew
condensation may occur on the interior and exterior surfaces of the monitor. In that case, do not turn the
monitor on. Instead wait until the dew condensation disappears, otherwise it may cause some damage to the
monitor.
If you place this product on a lacquer-coated desk, the color may adhere to the bottom of the stand due to
the composition of the rubber. Check the desk surface before use.
About the Maintenance
Periodic cleaning is recommended to keep the monitor looking new and to prolong its operation lifetime.
Cleaning
The stains on the cabinet and LCD panel surface can be removed by using the provided ScreenCleaner.
Attention
•• Chemicals such as alcohol and antiseptic solution may cause gloss variation, tarnishing, and fading of the cabinet
or LCD panel, and also quality deterioration of the image.
•• Never use thinner, benzine, wax, or abrasive cleaner as they may damage the cabinet or LCD panel surface.
To Use the Monitor Comfortably
•• An excessively dark or bright screen may affect your eyes. Adjust the brightness of the monitor
according to the environmental conditions.
•• Staring at the monitor for a long time tires your eyes. Take a 10-minute rest every hour.

Basic Adjustments/Settings
Chapter 3 SelfCalibration
This product is equipped with a built-in calibration sensor. By setting the calibration targets and execution
schedule in advance, the calibration sensor automatically operates and regularly calibrates the monitor. This
automatic calibration function is called "SelfCalibration".
The adjustment content of SelfCalibration differs depending on the color mode that is executed.
•• Standard Mode (color mode excluding "CAL"): the monitor's color reproduction gamut is updated
and the display mode in each mode is adjusted as follows:
-- The temperature is adjusted so that it is as close as possible to the specified value.
-- The gamut values are adjusted so that they are close to each specified value.
-- Information on brightness is updated.
•• Advanced Mode (color mode "CAL"):
-- When performing SelfCalibration on the monitor itself, calibrate the monitor to match the set
targets.
-- When using ColorNavigator 7, use a measurement device with the software to maintain the
calibrated state of the monitor.
Note
•• SelfCalibration can be executed 30 minutes after turning on the monitor.
•• SelfCalibration can also be executed when there are no external device signals being input.
•• To preserve adjustments that you set by using ColorNavigator 7, it is recommended to execute SelfCalibration.
•• Because brightness and chromaticity will change as you use the monitor, it is recommended to calibrate the monitor
periodically.
•• The measurement results from the built-in calibration sensor can be correlated with the measurement results from
the external measurement device that you want to use as a reference. For details, refer to the ColorNavigator 7
User's Manual.
You can set the calibration targets and execution schedule by using ColorNavigator 7 or the monitor's
Setting menu.
You can download the ColorNavigator 7 software and User's Manual from our website:
www.eizoglobal.com
Note
•• When using the software, you will need to connect a PC to the monitor with the supplied USB cable.
•• For details on the USB cable connection, see "Connection Procedure" (page 50).
•• While using the software, do not operate the power switch or operation switches on the front side of the monitor.
