There is no picture and the LED is on: • Check that the monitor is not in power saving mode. • Adjust the Contrast and Brightness through OSD or control buttons. • Check that the PC is switched on. • Check that the video cable has no bent pins. • Test that the monitor works on another PC previously set to another monitor’s supported resolution. The picture is fuzzy: • Adjust your monitor, using the Automatic Adjustment function (refer to “Auto Adjustment” on page 14). • If you are running a Windows 95/98/2000 Operating System then install the INF file - Plug and Play driver (refer to “How To Install The Drivers” on page 8). • Change the resolution to the recommended resolution 1024 x 768 at 60Hz. Pixels are missing: • Refer to “LCD Monitor Quality and Pixel Policy” on page 21. Colors are not pure: • Check that the video cable has no bent pins and is firmly attached to both the PC and monitor Video Connectors. • Recall the colors default factory settings (refer to “Miscellaneous” on page 17). • Adjust the RGB (Red, Green and Blue) colors to as required (refer to “Color Adjustment” on page 14). 20EnglishEnglish X hp pavilion fx50 15” lcd monitor T ro u b les ho o ting The picture is not centered: • Adjust your monitor using the Automatic Adjustment function (refer to “Auto Adjustment” on page 14). A pixel consists of one red, one green and one blue sub-pixel. Defective sub-pixels are less visible than defective whole pixels. Defective sub-pixels are small and only visible on a specific background. Defective means either the pixel or sub-pixel is stuck always ON, a bright spot on a dark background, or it is stuck always OFF, a dark spot on a bright background. The first is the more visible of the two. A dot defect is a stuck sub-pixel. Your HP P3901 will not have more than: • 10 total dot defects • 8 stuck full pixels • 8 stuck red sub-pixels • 5 stuck green sub-pixels (green is most visible) • 8 stuck blue sub-pixels • No more than two adjacent pixels may be stuck Adjacent is defined as less than 15mm edge to edge • No more than two pairs of two-adjacent stuck pixels per display To locate defective pixels, the unit should be viewed under normal operating conditions and in normal operating mode at a supported resolution and refresh rate, from a distance of approximately 50 cm (16 in.). HP expects that over time, the industry will continue to improve its ability to produce displays with fewer cosmetic imperfections and HP will adjust our guidelines as improvements are made. X English21 English LCD Monitor Quality and Pixel Policy Your Hewlett-Packard TFT display uses high precision technology, manufactured according to HP standards, to guarantee trouble-free personal computing. Nevertheless, your display may have cosmetic imperfections that appear as small bright or dark spots. This is common to all LCD displays used in products supplied by all vendors and is not specific to the HP P3901 displays. These imperfections are caused by one or more defective pixels or sub-pixels. hp pavilion fx50 15” lcd monitor Te chni cal Sp ecifi ca tion s Technical Specifications Type Video 15 inch diagonal and viewable image TFT liquid crystal display 0.7 Vp-p analog RGB Synchronization Separated H/V (TTL level) INTERFACE Input Connector 15-pin D-SUB SCANNING FREQUENCY Horizontal Vertical 1024 x 768 (75 Hz) 31–60 kHz 56–75 Hz LIQUID CRYSTAL MONITOR English INPUT SIGNAL MAX.

You have just purchased a TCO'99 approved and labelled 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 their manufacture. Since it is not so far possible to satisfactorily recycle the majority of electronics equipment, most of these potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter nature. X English27 English Hinweis für Deutschland: Geräuschemission Lärmangabe nach Maschinenlärmverordnung - 3 GSGV hp pavilion fx50 15” lcd monitor Re g ul ato ry Infor mat ion 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 electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (e.g. acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste), it is vital to save energy. Electronics equipment in offices is often left running continuously and thereby consumes a lot of energy. What does labelling involve? English 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). Approval requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, emission of electric and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety. The environmental demands impose 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 policy 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. Below you will find a brief summary of the environmental requirements met by this product. The complete environmental criteria document may be ordered from: TCO Development SE-114 94 Stockholm, Sweden Fax: +46 8 782 92 07 Email (Internet): firstname.lastname@example.org Current information regarding TCO'99 approved and labelled products may also be obtained via the Internet, using the address: http://www.tco-info.com/ Environmental requirements Flame retardants Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and housings. Their purpose is to prevent, or at least to delay the spread of fire. Up to 30% of the plastic in a computer casing can consist of flame retardant substances. Most flame retardants contain bromine or chloride, and those flame retardants are chemically related to another group of environmental toxins, PCBs. Both the flame retardants containing bromine or chloride and the PCBs are suspected of giving rise to severe health effects, including reproductive damage in fish-eating birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative1 processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that disturbances in foetus development may occur. The relevant TCO'99 demand requires that plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not contain flame retardants with organically bound bromine or chlorine. Flame retardants are allowed in the printed circuit boards since no substitutes are available. Cadmium2 1. Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living organisms 28EnglishEnglish X hp pavilion fx50 15” lcd monitor R e gula tory In form ati o n Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the color-generating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO'99 requirement states that batteries, the color-generating layers of display screens and the electrical or electronics components must not contain any cadmium. Mercury2 Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. It damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO'99 requirement states that batteries may not contain any mercury. It also demands that mercury is not present in any of the electrical or electronics components associated with the labelled unit.
