18 Chapter 2 Using the monitor

Using Auto-Sleep Mode

The monitor supports an OSD (On-Screen Display) menu option called Auto-Sleep Mode that allows you to enable or disable a reduced power state for the monitor. When Auto-Sleep Mode is enabled (enabled by default), the monitor will enter a reduced power state when the host PC signals low power mode (absence of either horizontal or vertical sync signal).

Upon entering this reduced power state (sleep mode), the monitor screen is blanked, the backlight is turned off and the power LED indicator turns amber. The monitor draws less than 0.5 W of power when in this reduced power state. The monitor will wake from the sleep mode when the host PC sends an active signal to the monitor (for example, if you activate the mouse or keyboard).

You can disable Auto-Sleep Mode in the OSD. Press one of the four front bezel Function buttons to activate the buttons, and then press the Menu button to open the OSD. In the OSD menu select Power Control > Auto-

Sleep Mode > Off.

20 Chapter 3 Support and troubleshooting

Using the auto-adjustment function (analog input)

When you first set up the monitor, conduct a Factory Reset of the computer, or change the resolution of the monitor, the Auto-Adjustment feature automatically engages, and attempts to optimize your screen for you.

You may also optimize the screen performance for the VGA (analog) input at any time by using the auto button on the monitor (see your model's user guide for the specific button name) and the auto-adjustment pattern software utility on the optical disc provided (select models only).

Do not use this procedure if the monitor is using an input other than VGA. If the monitor is using a VGA

(analog) input, this procedure can correct the following image quality conditions:

Fuzzy or unclear focus

● Ghosting, streaking or shadowing effects

Faint vertical bars

● Thin, horizontal scrolling lines

An off-center picture

To use the auto-adjustment feature:

1.

Allow the monitor to warm up for 20 minutes before adjusting.

2.

Press the auto button on the monitor front bezel.

You can also press the Menu button, and then select Image Control > Auto-Adjustment from the

OSD menu.

● If the result is not satisfactory, continue with the procedure.

3.

Insert the optical disc into the optical drive. The optical disc menu is displayed.

4.

Select Open Auto-Adjustment Utility. The setup test pattern is displayed.

5.

Press the auto button on the monitor front bezel to produce a stable, centered image.

6.

Press the ESC key or any other key on the keyboard to exit the test pattern.

NOTE:

The auto-adjustment test pattern utility can be downloaded from http://www.hp.com/support .

Using the auto-adjustment function (analog input) 21

Optimizing image performance (analog input)

Two controls in the on-screen display can be adjusted to improve image performance: Clock and Phase

(available in the OSD menu).

NOTE:

The Clock and Phase controls are adjustable only when using an analog (VGA) input. These controls are not adjustable for digital inputs.

The Clock must first be set correctly since the Phase settings are dependent on the main Clock setting. Use these controls only when the auto-adjustment function does not provide a satisfactory image.

Clock—Increases/decreases the value to minimize any vertical bars or stripes visible on the screen background.

Phase—Increases/decreases the value to minimize video flickering or blurring.

NOTE:

When using the controls, you will obtain the best results by using the auto-adjustment pattern software utility provided on the optical disc.

When adjusting the Clock and Phase values, if the monitor images become distorted, continue adjusting the values until the distortion disappears. To restore the factory settings, select Yes from the Factory Reset menu in the on-screen display.

4 Maintaining the monitor

Maintenance guidelines

Do not open the monitor cabinet or attempt to service this product yourself. Adjust only those controls that are covered in the operating instructions. If the monitor is not operating properly or has been dropped or damaged, contact an authorized HP dealer, reseller, or service provider.

● Use only a power source and connection appropriate for this monitor, as indicated on the label/back plate of the monitor.

Turn the monitor off when not in use. You can substantially increase the life expectancy of the monitor by using a screen saver program and turning off the monitor when not in use.

NOTE:

Monitors with a “burned-in image” are not covered under the HP warranty.

Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation. These openings must not be blocked or covered. Never push objects of any kind into cabinet slots or other openings.

● Keep the monitor in a well-ventilated area, away from excessive light, heat, or moisture.

When removing the monitor stand, you must lay the monitor facedown on a soft area to prevent it from getting scratched, defaced, or broken.

Cleaning the monitor

1.

Turn off the monitor and disconnect power from the computer by unplugging the power cord from the

AC outlet.

2.

Dust the monitor by wiping the screen and the cabinet with a soft, clean antistatic cloth.

3.

For more difficult cleaning situations, use a 50/50 mix of water and isopropyl alcohol.

CAUTION:

Spray the cleaner onto a cloth and use the damp cloth to gently wipe the screen surface. Never spray the cleaner directly on the screen surface. It may run behind the bezel and damage the electronics.

CAUTION:

Do not use cleaners that contain any petroleum-based materials such as benzene, thinner, or any volatile substance to clean the monitor screen or cabinet. These chemicals may damage the monitor.

Shipping the monitor

Keep the original packing box in a storage area. You may need it later if you move or ship the monitor.

Entering user modes

The video controller signal may occasionally call for a mode that is not preset if:

You are not using a standard graphics adapter.

● You are not using a preset mode.

It this occurs, you may need to readjust the parameters of the monitor screen by using the on-screen display.

Your changes can be made to any or all of these modes and saved in memory. The monitor automatically stores the new setting, and then recognizes the new mode just as it does a preset mode. In addition to the factory preset modes, there are at least 10 user modes that can be entered and stored.

Energy saver feature

The monitors support a reduced power state. The reduced power state will be entered into if the monitor detects the absence of either the horizontal sync signal or the vertical sync signal. Upon detecting the absence of these signals, the monitor screen is blanked, the backlight is turned off, and the power light is turned amber. When the monitor is in the reduced power state, the monitor will utilize 0.5 watts of power.

There is a brief warm-up period before the monitor will return to its normal operating mode.

Refer to the computer manual for instructions on setting energy saver features (sometimes called power management features).

NOTE:

The above power saver feature only works when the monitor is connected to a computer that has energy saver features.

By selecting the settings in the monitor's Energy Saver utility, you can also program the monitor to enter into the reduced power state at a predetermined time. When the monitor's Energy Saver utility causes the monitor to enter the reduced power state, the power light blinks amber.
