Monitor Specifications
The following sections give you information about the various power management
modes and pin assignments for the various connectors of your monitor.
Power Management Modes
If you have VESA’s DPM compliance display card or software installed in your PC, the
monitor automatically reduces its power consumption when not in use. This is referred
to as Power Save Mode. If the computer detects input from keyboard, mouse, or other
input devices, the monitor automatically resumes functioning. The following table
shows the power consumption and signaling of this automatic power-saving feature:

LCD Monitor Quality & Pixel Policy
During the LCD Monitor manufacturing process, it is not uncommon for one or more
pixels to become fixed in an unchanging state. The visible result is a fixed pixel that
appears as an extremely tiny dark or bright discolored spot. When the pixel remains
permanently lit, it is known as a “bright dot.” When the pixel remains black, it is known as
a “dark dot.”
In almost every case, these fixed pixels are hard to see and do not detract from display
quality or usability. A display with 1 to 5 fixed pixels is considered normal and within
competitive standards. For more information, see Dell Support site at:
http://www.dell.com/support/monitors.
Maintenance Guidelines
Caring for Your Monitor
CAUTION: Read and follow the safety instructions before cleaning the
monitor.
CAUTION: Before cleaning the monitor, unplug the monitor power
cable from the electrical outlet.
For best practices, follow the instructions in the list below while unpacking, cleaning, or
handling your monitor:
•	 To clean your antistatic screen, slightly dampen a soft, clean cloth with water. If
possible, use a special screen-cleaning tissue or solution suitable for the antistatic
coating. Do not use benzene, thinner, ammonia, abrasive cleaners, or compressed
air.
•	 Use a slightly dampened, warm cloth to clean the plastics. Avoid using detergent of
any kind as some detergents leave a milky film on the plastics.
•	 If you notice a white powder when you unpack your monitor, wipe it off with a
cloth. This white powder occurs during the shipping of the monitor.
•	 Handle your monitor with care as a darker-colored monitor may scratch and show
white scuff marks more than a lighter-colored monitor.
•	 To help maintain the best image quality on your monitor, use a dynamically
changing screen saver and power off your monitor when not in use.

Safety Instruction
Self-Test
Your monitor provides a self-test feature that allows you to check whether your monitor
is functioning properly. If your monitor and computer are properly connected but the
monitor screen remains dark, run the monitor self-test by performing the following
steps:
1.	Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
2.	Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer. To ensure proper
Self-Test operation, remove VGA cables from the back of computer.
3.	Turn on the monitor.
The floating dialog box should appear on-screen (against a black
background) if the monitor cannot sense a video signal and is working
correctly. While in self-test mode, the power LED remains white. Also,
depending upon the selected input, one of the dialogs shown below will
continuously scroll through the screen.
4.	This box also appears during normal system operation, if the video cable
becomes disconnected or damaged. The monitor will enter Power Save
Mode after 5 minutes if left at this state.
5.	Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both
your computer and the monitor.
If your monitor screen remains blank after you use the previous procedure, check your
video controller and computer, because your monitor is functioning properly.
