CORRECT PLACEMENT AND ADJUSTMENT OF THE MONITOR

CAN REDUCE EYE, SHOULDER AND NECK FATIGUE. CHECK THE

FOLLOWING WHEN YOU POSITION THE MONITOR:

For optimum performance, allow 20 minutes for warm-up.

Adjust the monitor height so that the top of the screen is at or slightly below eye level. Your eyes should look slightly downward when viewing the middle of the screen.

Position your monitor no closer than 16 inches and no further away than 28 inches from your eyes. The optimal distance is 23 inches.

Rest your eyes periodically by focusing on an object at least 20 feet away. Blink often.

Position the monitor at a 90° angle to windows and other light sources to minimize glare and reflections. Adjust the monitor tilt so that ceiling lights do not reflect on your screen.

If reflected light makes it hard for you to see your screen, use an anti-glare filter.

Clean the LCD monitor surface with a lint-free, non-abrasive cloth. Avoid using any cleaning solution or glass cleaner!

Adjust the monitor’s brightness and contrast controls to enhance readability.

Use a document holder placed close to the screen.

Position whatever you are looking at most of the time (the screen or reference material) directly in front of you to minimize turning your head while you are typing.

Avoid displaying fixed patterns on the monitor for long periods of time to avoid image persistence (after-image effects).

Get regular eye checkups.

Ergonomics

To realize the maximum ergonomics benefits, we recommend the following:

Adjust the Brightness until the background raster disappears

Do not position the Contrast control to its maximum setting

Use the preset Size and Position controls with standard signals

Use the preset Color Setting

Use non-interlaced signals with a vertical refresh rate between 60-75Hz

Do not use primary color blue on a dark background, as it is difficult to see and may produce eye fatigue to insufficient contrast

Features

ambix™ Technology:

Dual input technology allowing both analog and digital inputs off of one connector (DVI-I) as well as additional legacy analog support off of a traditional 15-pin mini D-SUB connector. Provides traditional MultiSync

®

technology compatibility for analog as well as TMDS™-based (Transition Minimized Differential Signaling) digital compatibility for digital inputs. TMDS-based digital interfaces include DVI-D,DFP and P&D.

DVI-I:

The integrated interface ratified by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG) that allows both digital and analog connectors off of one port. The “I” stands for integration for both digital and analog, The digital portion is TMDS-based.

DVI-D:

The digital-only subset of DVI ratified by the Digital Display Working Group

(DDWG) for digital connections between computers and displays. As a digital-only connector, analog support is not provided off a DVI-D connector. As a TMDS-based digital only connection, only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between DVI-D and other TMDS-based digital connectors such as DFP and P&D.

DFP (Digital Flat Panel):

An all-digital interface for flat panel monitors which is signal compatible with DVI. As a TMDS-based digital only connection, only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between DFP and other TMDS-based digital connectors such as DVI and P&D.

P&D (Plug and Display):

The VESA standard for digital flat panel monitor interfaces. It is more robust than DFP since it allows for other options off a signal connector (options like

USB, analog video and IEEE-1394-995). The VESA committe has recognized that DFP is a subset of P&D. As a TMDS-based connector (for the digital input pins), only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between P&D and other TMDS-based digital connector such as DVI and DFP.

Pivoting Stand:

Allows users to adjust the monitor to the orientation that best fits their application, either Landscape orientation for wide documents, or portrait orientation for the ability to preview a full page on one screen at one time. The Portrait orientation is also perfect for full screen video conferencing.

Reduced Footprint:

Provides the ideal solution for environments requiring superior image quality but with size and weight limitations. The monitor’s small footprint and low weight allow it to be moved or transported easily from one location to another.

Troubleshooting

No picture

• The signal cable should be completely connected to the display card/computer.

• The display card should be completely seated in its slot.

• Check the Vacation Switch should be in the ON position.

• Front Power Switch and computer power switch should be in the ON position.

• Check to make sure that a supported mode has been selected on the display card or system being used. (Please consult display card or system manual to change graphics mode.)

• Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility and recommended settings.

• Check the signal cable connector for bent or pushed-in pins.

• Check the signal input, “INPUT 1” or “INPUT 2”.

Power Button does not respond

• Unplug the power cord of the monitor from the AC outlet to turn off and reset the monitor, or simultaneously press the RESET and Power buttons.

• Check the Vacation Switch on the right side of the monitor.

Image persistence

• Image persistence is when a “ghost” of an image remains on the screen even after the monitor has been turned off. Unlike CRT monitors, LCD monitors’ image persistence is not permanent. To alleviate image persistence, turn the monitor off for as long as an image was displayed. If an image was on the monitor for one hour and a ”ghost” of that image remains, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to erase the image.

NOTE: As with all personal display devices, NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display of America recommends using a screen saver at regular intervals whenever the screen is idle.

Image is unstable, unfocused or swimming is apparent

• Signal cable should be completely attached to the computer.

• Use the OSM Image Adjust controls to focus and adjust display by increasing or decreasing the fine total. When the display mode is changed, the OSM

Image Adjust settings may need to be re-adjusted.

• Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility and recommended signal timings.

• If your text is garbled, change the video mode to non-interlace and use 60Hz refresh rate.

LED on monitor is not lit

(no green or amber color can be seen)

• Power Switch should be in the ON position and power cord should be connected.

Display image is not sized properly

• Use the OSM Image Adjust controls to increase or decrease the Coarse total.

• Check to make sure that a supported mode has been selected on the display card or system being used. (Please consult display card or system manual to change graphics mode.)

No Video

• If no video is present on the screen, turn the Power button off and on again.

• Make certain the computer is not in a power-saving mode (touch the keyboard or mouse).

TCO’95

MultiSync LCD1850X Black Model (LH-18S02-BK1)

Congratulations! You have just purchased a TCO’95 approved and labeled product! Your choice has provided you with a product developed for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to reducing the burden on the environment and also, to the further development of environmentally adapted electronics products.

Why do we have environmentally labelled computers?

In many countries, environmental labelling has become an established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and services to the environment. The main problem, as far as computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful substances are used both in the products and during the manufacturing. Since it has not been possible for the majority of electronics equipment to be recycled in a satisfactory way, most of these potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter Nature.

There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints of both the work (Internal) and natural (external) environments.

Since all methods of conventional electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste, etc.), it is vital to conserve energy. Electronics equipment in offices consume an enormous amount of energy since they are often left running continuously.

What does labelling involve?

This product meets the requirements for the TCO’95 scheme which provides for international and environmental labelling of personal computers. The labelling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees),

Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and NUTEK (The

National Board for Industrial and Technical Development in Sweden).

The requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, emission of electrical and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety.

The environmental demands concern restrictions on the presence and use of heavy metals, brominated and chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among other things. The product must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental plan which must be adhered to in each country where the company implements its operational policy. The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or display, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce its power consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time to reactivate the computer shall be reasonable for the user.

Labelled products must meet strict environmental demands, for example, in respect of the reduction of electric and magnetic fields, physical and visual ergonomics and good usability.

TCO’95 is a co-operative project between TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional

Employees), Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and

NUTEK (The National Board for Industrial and Technical Development in Sweden).

Environmental Requirements

Brominated flame retardants

Brominated flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and housings. In turn, they delay the spread of fire. Up to thirty percent of the plastic in a computer casing can consist of flame retardant substances. These are related to another group of environmental toxins, PCBs, which are suspected to give rise to similar harm, including

18

1-20

TCO’95

–continued reproductive damage in fisheating birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative* processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that disturbances in foetus development may occur.

TCO’95 demand requires that plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not contain organically bound chlorine and bromine.

Lead**

Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and capacitors. Lead damages the nervous system and in higher doses, causes lead poisoning.

TCO’95 requirement permits the inclusion of lead since no replacement has yet been developed.

Cadmium**

Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the colourgenerating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses.

TCO’95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more than 25 ppm (parts per million) of cadmium. The colourgenerating layers of display screens must not contain any cadmium.

Mercury**

Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays, switches, and back-light systems, Mercury damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses.

TCO’95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more than 25 ppm (parts per million) of mercury. It also demands that no mercury is present in any of the electrical or electronics components concerned with the display unit, except the back-light system.

CFCs

(freons)

CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards and in the manufacturing of expanded foam for packaging. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in the stratosphere, causing increased reception on Earth of ultraviolet light with consequent increased risks of skin cancer (malignant melanoma).

The relevant TCO’95 requirement; Neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the manufacturing of the product or its packaging.

*Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living organisms.

**Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are Bio-accumulative.

CORRECT PLACEMENT AND ADJUSTMENT OF

THE MONITOR CAN REDUCE EYE, SHOULDER

AND NECK FATIGUE. CHECK THE FOLLOWING

WHEN YOU POSITION THE MONITOR:

• For optimum performance, allow

20 minutes for warm-up.

• Adjust the monitor height so that the top of the screen is at or slightly below eye level.

Your eyes should look slightly downward when viewing the middle of the screen.

• Position your monitor no closer than 40 cm and no further away than 70 cm from your eyes. The optimal distance is 58 cm.

• Rest your eyes periodically by focusing on an object at least 6 m away. Blink often.

• Position the monitor at a 90° angle to windows and other light sources to minimize glare and reflections. Adjust the monitor tilt so that ceiling lights do not reflect on your screen.

• If reflected light makes it hard for you to see your screen, use an antiglare filter.

• Clean the LCD monitor surface with a lint-free, non-abrasive cloth. Avoid using any cleaning solution or glass cleaner!

• Adjust the monitor’s brightness and contrast controls to enhance readability.

• Use a document holder placed close to the screen.

• Position whatever you are looking at most of the time (the screen or reference material) directly in front of you to minimize turning your head while you are typing.

English-20

1-45

• Avoid displaying fixed patterns on the monitor for long periods of time to avoid image persistence (after-image effects).

• Get regular eye checkups.

Ergonomics

To realize the maximum ergonomics benefits, we recommend the following:

Adjust the Brightness until the background raster disappears

• Do not position the Contrast control to its maximum setting

• Use the preset Size and Position controls with standard signals

• Use the preset Color Setting

• Use non-interlaced signals with a vertical refresh rate between

60-75 Hz

• Do not use primary color blue on a dark background, as it is difficult to see and may produce eye fatigue to insufficient contrast

Features

sRGB Color Control: A new optimized color management standard

which allows for color matching on computer displays and other peripherals. The sRGB, which is based on the calibrated color space, allows for optimal color representation and backward compatibility with other common color standards.

Reduced Footprint: Provides the ideal solution for environments

requiring superior image quality but with size and weight limitations.

The monitor’s small footprint and low weight allow it to be moved or transported easily from one location to another.

Color Control System: Allows you to adjust the colors on your screen

and customize the color accuracy of your monitor to a variety of standards.

OSM (On-Screen Manager) Controls: Allow you to quickly and easily

adjust all elements of your screen image via simple to use on-screen menus.

ErgoDesign Features: Enhance human ergonomics to improve the

working environment, protect the health of the user and save money.

Examples include OSM controls for quick and easy image adjustments, tilt base for preferred angle of vision, small footprint and compliance with

MPRII and TCO guidelines for lower emissions.

Plug and Play: The Microsoft solution with the Windows 95/98/2000

operating system facilitates setup and installation by allowing the monitor to send its capabilities (such as screen size and resolutions supported) directly to your computer, automatically optimizing display performance.

IPM (Intelligent Power Manager) System: Provides innovative

power-saving methods that allow the monitor to shift to a lower power consumption level when on but not in use, saving two-thirds of your monitor energy costs, reducing emissions and lowering the air conditioning costs of the workplace.

Multiple Frequency Technology: Automatically adjusts monitor to the

display card’s scanning frequency, thus displaying the resolution required.

English-24

1-49

FullScan Capability: Allows you to use the entire screen area in most

resolutions, significantly expanding image size.

Wide Viewing Angle Technology: Allows the user to be able to see the

monitor from any angle (170 degrees) from any orientation – Portrait or

Landscape. Provides full 170° viewing angles either up, down, left or right.

VESA Standard Mounting Interface: Allows users to connect their

MultiSync monitor to any VESA standard (100 mm pitch) third party mounting arm or bracket. Allows for the monitor to be mounted on a wall or an arm using any third party compliant device.

ambix Technology: Dual input technology allowing both analog and

digital inputs through one connector (DVI-I) as well as additional legacy analog support through a traditional 15-pin mini-D-sub connector.

Provides traditional MultiSync technology compatibility for analog as well as TMDS (Transition Minimized Differential Signal) based digital compatibility for digital inputs. TMDS-based digital interfaces include

DVI-D, DFP and P&D.

DVI-I: The integrated interface ratified by the Digital Display Working

Group (DDWG) that allows both digital and analog connectors through one port. The “I” stands for integration for both digital and analog. The digital portion is TMDS based.

DVI-D: The digital only subset of DVI ratified by the Digital Display

Working Group (DDWG) for digital connections between computers and displays. As a digital only connector, analog support is not provided for through a DVI-D connector. As a TMDS based digital only connection, only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between DVI-D and other TMDS based digital connectors such as DFP and P&D.

P&D: Plug and Display - The VESA standard for digital flat panel monitor

interfaces. It is more robust than DFP since it allows for other options through a single connector (options like USB, analog video and IEEE-

1394-995). The VESA committee has recognized that DFP is a subset of P&D. As a TMDS based connector (for the digital input pins), only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between P&D and other

TMDS based digital connectors such as DVI and DFP.

Pivoting Stand: Allows users to adjust the monitor to the orientation

that best fits their application, either Landscape orientation for wide documents, or portrait orientation for the ability to preview a full page on one screen at one time. The Portrait orientation is also perfect for full screen video conferencing.

Troubleshooting

No picture

• The signal cable should be completely connected to the display card/ computer.

• The display card should be completely seated in its slot.

• Check the Vacation Switch should be in the ON Position. Front power

Switch and computer power switch should be in the ON position.

• Check to make sure that a supported mode has been selected on the display card or system being used. (Please consult display card or system manual to change graphics mode.)

• Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility and recommended settings.

• Check the signal cable connector for bent or pushed-in pins.

• Check the signal input, “INPUT 1” or “INPUT 2”.

Power Button does not respond

• Unplug the power cord of the monitor from the AC outlet to turn off and reset the monitor, or simultaneously press the RESET and

Power buttons.

• Check the Vacation Switch on the right hand side of the monitor.

Image persistence

• Image persistence is when a “ghost” of an image remains on the screen even after the monitor has been turned off. Unlike CRT monitors, LCD monitors’ image persistence is not permanent.

To alleviate image persistence, turn the monitor off for as long as an image was displayed. If an image was on the monitor for one hour and a “ghost” of that image remains, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to erase the image.

NOTE:

As with all personal display devices, NEC-Mitsubishi Electronic

Displays recommends using a screen saver at regular intervals whenever the screen is idle.

English-26

1-51

Image is unstable, unfocused or swimming is apparent

• Signal cable should be completely attached to the computer.

• Use the OSM Image Adjust controls to focus and adjust display by increasing or decreasing the fine total. When the display mode is changed, the OSM Image Adjust settings may need to be readjusted.

• Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility and recommended signal timings.

• If your text is garbled, change the video mode to non-interlace and use 60 Hz refresh rate.

Message “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed (screen is either blank or shows rough images only)

• Image is displayed only roughly (pixels are missing) and OSM warning “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed: Either signal clock or resolution is too high. Choose one of the supported modes.

• OSM warning “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed on a blank screen:

Signal frequency is out of range. Choose one of the supported modes.

LED on monitor is not lit (no green or amber color can be seen)

• Power Switch should be in the ON position and power cord should be connected.

Display image is not sized properly

• Use the OSM Image Adjust controls to increase or decrease the

Coarse total.

• Check to make sure that a supported mode has been selected on the display card or system being used. (Please consult display card or system manual to change graphics mode.)

TCO’99

This is a translation of the original English TCO'99 document.

MultiSync LCD1850X white Model (LH-18S02-1)

Congratulations! You have just purchased a TCO’99 approved and labeled product! Your choice has provided you with a product developed for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to reducing the burden on the environment and also to the further development of environmentally adapted electronics products.

Why do we have environmentally labelled computers?

In many countries, environmental labelling has become an established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and services to the environment. The main problem, as far as computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful substances are used both in the products and during the manufacturing.

Since it has not been possible for the majority of electronics equipment to be recycled in a satisfactory way, most of these potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter Nature.

There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints of both the work (Internal) and natural (external) environments. Since all methods of conventional electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste, etc.), it is vital to conserve energy. Electronics equipment in offices consume an enormous amount of energy since they are often left running continuously.

What does labelling involve?

This product meets the requirements for the TCO’99 scheme which provides for international and environmental labelling of personal computers. The labelling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the

TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), Svenska

Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and Statens Energimyndighet (The Swedish National Energy

Administration).

English-28

1-53

The requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, emission of electrical and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety.

The environmental demands concern restrictions on the presence and use of heavy metals, brominated and chlorinated flame retardants,

CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among other things. The product must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental plan which must be adhered to in each country where the company implements its operational policy. The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or display, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce its power consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time to reactivate the computer shall be reasonable for the user.

Labelled products must meet strict environmental demands, for example, in respect of the reduction of electric and magnetic fields, physical and visual ergonomics and good usability.

Environmental Requirements

Flame retardants

Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and housings. In turn, they delay the spread of fire. Up to thirty percent of the plastic in a computer casing can consist of flame retardant substances. Most flame retardants contain bromine or chloride and these are related to another group of environmental toxins, PCBs, which are suspected to give rise to severe health effects, including reproductive damage in fisheating birds and mammals, due to the bioaccumulative* processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that disturbances in foetus development may occur.

TCO’99 demand requires that plastic components weighing more than

25 grams must not contain flame retardants with organically bound chlorine and bromine. Flame retardants are allowed in the printed circuit boards since no substitutes are available.

Lead**

Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and capacitors. Lead damages the nervous system and in higher doses, causes lead poisoning.

TCO’99 requirement permits the inclusion of lead since no replacement has yet been developed.

English-29

1-54

Cadmium**

Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the colourgenerating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses.

TCO’99 requirement states that batteries, the colourgenerating layers of display screens and the electrical or electronics components must not contain any cadmium.

Mercury**

Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches, Mercury damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses.

TCO’99 requirement states that batteries may not contain any Mercury.

It also demands that no mercury is present in any of the electrical or electronics components associated with the display unit.

CFCs (freons)

CFCs (freons)are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards.

CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in the stratosphere, causing increased reception on Earth of ultraviolet light with consequent increased risks of skin cancer (malignant melanoma).

The relevant TCO’99 requirement; Neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the manufacturing and assembly of the product or its packaging.

* Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living organisms.

** Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are

Bioaccumulative.

TCO’95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more than

25 ppm (parts per million) of mercury. It also demands that no mercury is present in any of the electrical or electronics components concerned with the display unit, except the back-light system.

CFCs (freons)

CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards and in the manufacturing of expanded foam for packaging. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in the stratosphere, causing increased reception on Earth of ultraviolet light with consequent increased risks of skin cancer (malignant melanoma).

The relevant TCO’95 requirement; Neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the manufacturing of the product or its packaging.
