B. Choosing the best resolution
Due to the technology of an LC display, it always provides a fixed resolution. For the FP567 this is a
resolution of 1024x768. This is called the "Native Resolution", which also represents the maximal
resolution. Lower resolutions are displayed on a full screen through an interpolation circuit. Flaws
do occur with the interpolated resolution compared to the native resolution. If you want to have all
the advantages of LCD technology you must use the native resolution. Using Windows 95/ 98 /
2000 you can change the resolution as follows:
1. Double-click the “Display” icon in the Control Panel.
2.
3.
From the “Display Properties” window, select the “Settings” tab. You can alter the resolution by using the slider on the right-hand side.
Select a resolution of 1024x768. Then click "Apply." .
English 28
BenQ LCD Color Monitor User's Guide
4.
In the subsequent windows press: “Apply”, “OK” and “Yes”.
5.
You can now close “Display Properties”.
English 29
BenQ LCD Color Monitor User's Guide
C. Refresh Rate Selection
There is no need to choose the highest possible refresh rate on a LC display. It is not technically
possible for an LC display to flicker. Even at a refresh rate of 60 Hz you will get an absolutely flickerfree image. More important is that you make sure that you use one of the factory modes. In contrast to a modern CRT monitor, which is a multiscan monitor, the LC display is a multi-frequency
monitor. This means, the best results are only obtained by using the factory modes. You will find a
table with the factory modes in this user's guide. For the native resolution of 1024x768, these, for
example, are 60, 70 and 75 Hertz, not 72 Hz; however, in Windows 95/ 98/ 2000 you can change
the refresh rate as follows:
1. Double click the “Display” icon in the control panel.
2.
From the “Display Properties” window, select the “Settings” tab. Click the “Advanced
properties” button in the bottom right corner.
English 30
BenQ LCD Color Monitor User's Guide
3.
Select the “Adapter” tab. The refresh rate selection field is located in the center at the bottom of the window.
4.
5.
Choose a refresh rate from the table with the factory modes, which can be found in the user’s
guide, and select this in the settings field.
In the subsequent windows press “Change”, “OK” and “Yes”.
6.
You can now close “Display Properties”.
English 31
BenQ LCD Color Monitor User's Guide
D. Picture Optimization
The easiest way to obtain an optimal picture is by using the ikey function. The funtion works correctly if using the supplied adjustment software (auto.exe) and provided the device is in a factorymode.
1.
2.
Start the auto.exe program from the CD, supplied with the monitor. A test pattern appears.
Now press the ikey. The device carries out an automatic adjustment. In most cases optimal
results will be obtained. You can quit the auto.exe with a single mouse click and clicking on
“Exit”.
If you are still not satisfied with the result, you can still attempt to enhance the image by means of
manual adjust.
1. To do this restart the auto.exe test pattern, which is the best way of observing possible
changes. You also can use any other image, such as the desktop of an operating system.
2. You can access the OSD menu by pressing the Enter button on the monitor.
3. Using the “<” or “>” key on the monitor, navigate to the submenu for the Geometry values
and then press Enter.
4. Adjust the “Pixel Clock” by pressing “<” or “>” key to optimize the picture quality.
5. To Exit Clock submenu by pressing Exit twice (Geometry submenu).
If you need further adjustment, back to Geometry submenu and select “Phase” by pressing “<”
or “>” key to reach the best status. If you are still not satisfied with the result, repeat the procedure using a different refresh rate.
You must use one of the factory modes. If the i-key is not working, or the “Not supported
mode” message is on the OSD you are not using one of the supported modes. If you are having
difficulties generating a supported mode, ask the manufacturer of your graphics card for assistance.

Troubleshooting
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
✓ The image is blurred:
☞ Read the chapter, "Installation/Adjustment" and select the correct resolution, refresh rate
and make adjustments based on these instructions.
☞ Do you use a VGA extension cable?
Remove the extension cable for the test. Is the image now in focus? If not, optimize the
image working on the description in the chapter, "Installation/Adjustment." It is normal
for blurring to occur due to conduction losses in extension cables. You can minimize
these losses by using an extension cable with better conduction quality or with a builtin booster.
☞ Does the blurring only occur at resolutions lower than the native (maximum) resolution?
Read the chapter "Installation/Adjustment." Select the native resolution.
✓ Pixel errors can be seen:
☞ One of several pixels are permanently black, one or more pixels are permanently white,
one or more pixels are permanently red, green, blue or another colour.
Read the chapter "Pixel Error Rates."
✓ The image has a faulty colour appearance:
☞ It has a yellow, blue or pink appearance.
On the monitor press the “Enter” button and use the “<”or “>”keys to move to the
“information” menu. Press “Enter” to “Recall” the preset mode. If the image is still not
correct and the OSD also has a fault colour appearance, then one of the three primary
colours is missing in the signal input. Now check the VGA cable contacts. If any pins
are bent or broken off, then contact your dealer or read the chapter, Additional Help,
Repairs & Service.
✓ No image can be seen:
☞ Is the prompt on the display illuminated in green?
If the LED is illuminated in green, then press the “Exit” button on the monitor to
access the On Screen Display. If the message “Not supported Mode” appears, read the
chapter "Installation/Adjustment."
☞ Is the prompt on the display illuminated in orange?
If the LED is illuminated in orange, then the power management mode is active. Press
a button on the computer keyboard or move the mouse. If that does not help, then
check the VGA cable contacts. If any pins are bent or broken off, then contact your
dealer or read the chapter, Additional Help, Repairs & Service.
English 39
BenQ LCD Color Monitor User's Guide
☞ Is the prompt on the display not illuminated at all?
Check the power supply mains socket, the external power supply and the mains
switch.
✓ The image is distorted, flashes or flickers:
☞ Read the chapter, "Installation/Adjustment" and then select the correct resolution, refresh
rate and make adjustments based on these instructions.
✓ The image is displaced in one direction:
☞ Read the chapter, "Installation/Adjustment" and then select the correct resolution, refresh
rate and make adjustments based on these instructions.

hModes, which are not listed in the above table, may not be supported. For an optimal picture
it is recommended to choose a mode listed in the table.
hThere are 12 available modes that are compatible with Windows.
hImage disruption may occur as a result of signal frequency differences from VGA cards which
do not correspond with the usual standard. This is not, however, an error. You may improve
this situation by altering an automatic setting or by manually changing the phase setting and
the pixel frequency from the "Geometry" menu.
hIf you switch off the monitor, interference lines can occur on your screen. But do not be concerned about this, as it is normal.
hTo extend the service life of the product, we recommend you use your computer's power
management function.
