- Check the connection of RS232C. (Check if it is properly connected to the Com1 port)
- Check the displays to see if any of the other displays connected have the same ID. If more than one
displays have the same ID, those displays are not properly detected by the program due to data conflict.
- Check if the Display Set ID is a number between 1 and 10. (Adjust using the Display menu)
Note : A Display Set ID must be a value between 1 and 10. If the value is out of the range, the MDC
system cannot control the display.
2. The display you wish to control does not appear on the other Control Info Grids
- Check to see if the display power is ON. (You can check this in Power Control Info Grid)
- Check if you can change the input source of the display.

Terms
Sync Signal
Sync (Synchronized) Signals refer to the standard signals that are required to display desired colors on
the monitor. They are divided into Vertical and Horizontal Sync Signals. These signals display normal
color images by the set resolution and frequency.
Types of Sync Signals
Separate
This is a scheme of transmitting individual vertical sync signals to the monitor.
Composite
This is a scheme of combining vertical sync signals into one composite signal
and transmitting it to the monitor. The monitor displays the color signals by
separating the composite signal into original color signals.
Sync On Green
This scheme does not use sync signals. Instead, it combines horizontal and
vertical sync signals into a Green signal and transmits to the monitor. It is mainly
used for workstations.
Dot Pitch
The image on a monitor is composed of red, green and blue dots. The closer the dots, the higher the
resolution. The distance between two dots of the same color is called the 'Dot Pitch'. Unit: mm
Vertical Frequency
The screen must be redrawn several times per second in order to create and display an image for the
user. The frequency of this repetition per second is called Vertical Frequency or Refresh Rate. Unit: Hz
Example: If the same light repeats itself 60 times per second, this is regarded as 60 Hz. In this case,
flickering of the screen can be detected. To avoid this problem, there is a Flicker-free Mode
using a vertical frequency over 70 Hz.
Horizontal Frequency
The time to scan one line connecting the right edge to the left edge of the screen horizontally is called
Horizontal Cycle. The inverse number of the Horizontal Cycle is called Horizontal Frequency. Unit: kHz
Interlace and Non-Interlace Methods
Showing the horizontal lines of the screen from the top to the bottom in order is called the Non-Interlace
method while showing odd lines and then even lines in turn is called the Interlace method. The NonInterlace method is used for the majority of monitors to ensure a clear image. The Interlace method is
the same as that used in TVs.
Plug & Play
This is a function that provides the best quality screen for the user by allowing the computer and the
monitor to exchange information automatically. This monitor follows the international standard VESA
DDC for the Plug & Play function.
Resolution
The number of horizontal and vertical dots used to compose the screen image is called 'resolution'. This
number shows the accuracy of the display. High resolution is good for performing multiple tasks as more
image information can be shown on the screen.
Example: If the resolution is 1024 X 768, this means the screen is composed of 1024 horizontal dots
(horizontal resolution) and 768 vertical lines (vertical resolution).
Multiple Display Control (MDC)
A Multiple Display Control (MDC) is an application allowing various displays to be easily and
simultaneously operated on a PC. RS-232C, a standard of serial communication, is used for the
communication between a PC and a display.

Natural Color
Natural Color Software Program
One of the recent problems in using a computer is that the color of the images printed out by a printer or
other images scanned by a scanner or a digital camera are not the same as those shown on the monitor.
The Natural Color S/W is the very solution for this problem. It is a color administration system developed
by Samsung Electronics in association with Korea Electronics & Telecommunications Research Institute
(ETRI). This system is available only for Samsung monitors and makes the color of the images on the
monitor the same as the printed or scanned images.
For more information, refer to Help (F1) in the software program.

Insert the CD included with the Samsung monitor into the CD-ROM Drive. Then, the initial screen of the
program installation will be executed. Click Natural Color on the initial screen to install the Natural Color
software. To install the program manually, insert the CD included with the Samsung monitor into the CDROM Drive, click the [Start] button of Windows and then select [Execute].
Enter D:\color\eng\setup.exe and then press the <Entrer> key.
(If the drive where the CD is inserted is not D:\, enter the applicable drive.)
How to delete the Natural Color software program
Select [Setting]/[Control Panel] on the [Start] menu and then double-click [Add/Delete a program].
Select Natural Color from the list and then click the [Add/Delete] button.
