LCD Monitor Quality and Pixel Policy

During the LCD Monitor manufacturing process, it is not uncommon for one or more pixels to become fixed in an unchanging state which are hard to see and do not affect the display quality or usability. For more information on

Dell Monitor Quality and Pixel Policy, see Dell Support site at: www.dell.com/ support/monitors .

Maintenance Guidelines

Cleaning Your Monitor

WARNING: Read and follow the

Safety Instructions before cleaning the

monitor.

WARNING: Before cleaning the monitor, unplug the monitor power cable from the electrical outlet.

For best practices, follow the instructions in the list below while unpacking, cleaning, or handling your monitor:

• To clean your antistatic screen, lightly dampen a soft, clean cloth with water. If possible, use a special screen-cleaning tissue or solution suitable for the antistatic coating. Do not use benzene, thinner, ammonia, abrasive cleaners, or compressed air.

• Use a lightly-dampened, warm cloth to clean the monitor. Avoid using detergent of any kind as some detergents leave a milky film on the monitor. 

• If you notice white powder when you unpack your monitor, wipe it off with a cloth.

• Handle your monitor with care as dark-colored monitors may scratch and show white scuff marks more than light-colored monitors.

• To help maintain the best image quality on your monitor, use a dynamically changing screen saver and turn off your monitor when not in use.

 Extend these displays: This option is recommended when an external monitor is connected to a laptop, and each monitor can display different screen independently to improve user convenience. The relative position of the screens can be set up here, for example monitor

1 may be set up to be to the left of monitor 2 or vice versa. This depends on the physical position of the LCD monitor in relation to the laptop. The horizontal line displayed on both monitors can be based on the laptop or external monitor. These are all adjustable options, and all a user need do is drag the monitor of the main screen to the extended monitor.
