Maintenance Guidelines
Cleaning Your Monitor
CAUTION: Read and follow the Safety Instructions before cleaning the monitor.
WARNING: 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 anti-static screen, lightly dampen a soft, clean cloth with water. If
possible, use a special screen-cleaning tissue or solution suitable for the anti-
static coating. Do not use benzene, thinner, ammonia, abrasive cleaners, or
compressed air.
• Use a lightly-dampened, warm cloth to clean the monitor. Avoid using
detergent of any kind as some detergents leave a milky film on the monitor.
• If you notice white powder when you unpack your monitor, wipe it off with a
cloth.
• Handle your monitor with care as a darker-colored monitor may get scratched
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 turn Off your monitor when not in use.
