24

If the screen flickers, go back to step 9 and redo the setup several times until the flicker is minimized, or adjust it manually by using the manual-adjust menu.

The screen may be distorted during the setup. This is not a problem.

If “AUTO SETUP COMPLETED” is not displayed

If the “COMPLETED” message is not displayed after 1 minute, make sure that the PC

' s screen setting is in the supported screen resolution in the table on page 39.

Go back to step 9 on page 23 and redo the auto setup. If the setup procedure does not complete successfully, an “AUTO SETUP

FAILED” message appears. In that case, repeat the auto setup procedure three times.

If you still cannot complete the setup, adjust manually by using the manual-adjust menu (see “The Manual-Adjust Menu” on page 30), or contact your IBM representative.

If, after you perform auto setup, the display is still distorted, perform the manual setup described in “The Manual-Adjust Menu” on page 30.

2

Start the operating system on your PC.

3

Display a full-screen image, and adjust the screen to maximum brightness.

A full-screen image is needed

Auto setup of the monitor involves detecting the conditions at the vertical and horizontal edges of the screen. Therefore, you need a full screen image to perform proper auto setup. You also need a clear contrast between the brightest part of the screen and the darkest for correct adjustment. Otherwise, the screen may flicker. If necessary, try to display some other full-screen image.

4

Push the setup switch on the bottom of the monitor.

The setup main menu appears:

5

Push one of the brightness control ( ) buttons to select AUTO

SETUP.

6

Push one of the contrast control ( ) buttons. After about 10 seconds, the message “Save parameters?” is displayed.

7

Saving Power with Standby Mode

Case A

To use the power-saving function of your PC, set STANDBY in the main menu to DPMS. The monitor then enters standby mode by receiving signals from your PC.

Case B

If there is no power-saving function in your computer, you can set the time before the monitor enters standby mode with the STANDBY parameter in the setup main menu. You must connect the keyboard, mouse, and the optional keyboard/mouse cable (P/N:83H7859) to the connectors at the rear of the monitor.

The following table shows the power dissipation and the state of indicators when the monitor is in standby mode.

The Manual-Adjust Menu

You can run the following functions from the manual-adjust menu.

Decreasing the noise, such as the noise on the screen

Adjusting the hue

Adjusting the display position and size on the screen

You can reduce the noise and vertical stripes on the screen by adjusting the

PHASE and CLOCK parameters, respectively. Normally, you do not need to use the manual-adjust menu, since its parameters are set to optimum default values in auto setup.

Using the Manual-Adjust Menu

1

Push and hold one of the brightness control ( ) buttons. The following menu is displayed:

30

2

Use one of the brightness control ( ) buttons to select an item, and use one of the contrast ( ) buttons to set the values for that item.

Adjust CLOCK to reduce the vertical stripes.

3

Adjust PHASE to reduce the noise on the screen.

4

Adjust the display position with H-POSI and V-POSI, which are on a subsequent menu.

5

When you have specified the settings in the manual-adjust menu, select

SAVE VALUES. Push one of the contrast ( ) buttons to store the values.

6

Push the setup switch on the bottom of the monitor to exit the menu.

About the LCD

The LCD contains over 2,300,000 thin-film transistors (TFTs). A small number of missing, discolored, or lighted dots may be present on the screen, which is an intrinsic characteristic of the TFT LCD technology and is not an LCD defect. If there is a problem with the LCD, contact the DBU

Helpline.

Electrical Emissions

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Statement

Note: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

Consult an IBM authorized dealer or service representative for help.

Properly shielded and grounded cables and connectors must be used in order to meet FCC emission limits. Proper cables and connectors are available from IBM authorized dealers. IBM is not responsible for any radio or television interference caused by using other than recommended cables and connectors or by unauthorized changes or modifications to this equipment.

Unauthorized changes or modifications could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.

This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
