Safety and Maintenance Guidelines
Important Safety Information
The power cord is designed for use with your monitor. To use a different cord, use only a power source and
connection compatible with this monitor.
Safety Precautions
■ Use only a power source and connection compatible with this monitor, as indicated on the label/back plate of
the monitor.
■ Be sure the total ampere rating of the products connected to the outlet does not exceed the current rating of the
electrical outlet, and the total ampere rating of the products connected to the power cord does not exceed the
rating of the power cord. Look on the power label to determine the ampere rating (Amps or A) for each device.
■ Install your monitor near a power outlet that you can easily reach. Disconnect the monitor by grasping the plug
firmly and pulling it from the outlet. Never disconnect the monitor by pulling the cord.
■ Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not walk on the cord.
WARNING: Always connect your monitor, the computer, and other equipment to a grounded (earthed) power
outlet. To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to your equipment, do not disable the power cord grounding
feature. The grounding plug is an important safety feature.
WARNING: For your safety, be sure that the grounded power outlet you plug the power cord into is easily
accessible to the operator and located as close to the equipment as possible. To disconnect power from the
equipment, unplug the power cord from the power outlet by grasping the plug firmly. Never pull on the cord.
CAUTION: To protect your monitor, as well as your computer, connect all power cords for your computer and its
peripheral devices (such as a monitor, printer, or scanner) to a surge protection device such as a power strip with
surge protection or uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
Not all power strips provide surge protection; the power strips must be specifically labeled as having this ability. Use
a power strip whose manufacturer offers a damage replacement policy, so you can replace your equipment if surge
protection fails.

The number and type of cables required may vary by model. Some cables and adapters are included for select
models only and may be sold separately.
Cable/Adapter Name Description
HDMI cable HDMI transmits an all-digital signal. It is the
recommended choice for playback from a DVD
or DVR.
HDMI is capable of transmitting both
uncompressed digital audio and digital video
signals, because it has video, audio, and control
signals.
DVI cable DVI transmits an all-digital video signal.
VGA cable VGA transmits an analog video signal.
DVI-to-VGA adapter Connects a DVI monitor to a VGA connector on the
back of the computer, TV, or set-top box or connects
a VGA monitor to a DVI connector on the back of
the computer, TV, or set-top box.
DVI-to-HDMI adapter Connects a DVI monitor to an HDMI connector on
the back of the computer, TV, or set-top box or
connects an HDMI monitor to a DVI connector on
the back of the computer, TV, or set-top box.

Selecting Video Input Connectors
The input connectors are:
■ VGA connector (analog)
■ DVI-D connector (digital)
■ HDMI connector
The monitor automatically determines which inputs have valid video signals, and displays the image.
You can connect the VGA cable, the DVI-D cable, or both. If both cables are installed, the default input selection is
DVI. The HDMI cable is in place of the DVI-D cable. The source of input can be switched using the Switch Video
Input option in the OSD menu. Switching from a VGA to an HDMI input source may take several seconds.
Identifying Monitor Conditions
Special messages appear on the monitor screen for the following monitor conditions:
■ Input Signal Out of Range — Indicates the monitor does not support the video card’s input signal because
its resolution or refresh rate are set higher than the monitor supports.
Change your video card settings to a lower resolution or refresh rate. Restart your computer for the new settings
to take effect.
■ Monitor Going to Sleep — Indicates the screen display is entering a sleep mode. The speakers are turned
off in sleep mode.
■ Check Video Cable — Indicates a video input cable is not properly connected to the computer or monitor.
■ OSD Lock-out — The OSD can be enabled or disabled by pressing and holding the Menu button on the front
panel for 10 seconds. If the OSD is locked, the warning message “OSD Lock-out” appears for 10 seconds.
If the OSD is locked, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds to unlock the OSD.
If the OSD is unlocked, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds to lock the OSD.
■ No Input Signal — Indicates the monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer on the monitor
video input connector(s). Check to see if the computer or input signal source is off or in the power-saver mode.
■ Auto Adjustment in Progress — Indicates the auto-adjustment function is active. See “Adjusting Screen
Quality” in this chapter.
Adjusting Screen Quality
The auto-adjustment feature automatically fine-tunes the image quality for display size, position, clock, and phase
each time a new video mode is displayed. For more precise adjustments of VGA input, run the Auto-Adjustment
software on the CD. See “Using the Auto-Adjustment Function” in this chapter.
If you want additional image-quality improvement, use the Clock and Clock Phase controls of the monitor to fine-tune
the image. See “Optimizing Analog Video” in this chapter.
Optimizing Analog Video
Some monitors contain advanced circuitry that allow the monitor to function as a standard analog monitor. Two
controls in the OSD menu can be adjusted to improve analog image performance:
■ Clock — Increase or decrease the value to minimize any vertical bars or stripes visible on the screen
background.
■ Clock Phase — Increase or decrease the value to minimize video distortion or video jitter.
Use these controls only when the auto-adjustment function does not provide a satisfactory monitor image in
analog mode.

To obtain the best results:
1. Allow the monitor to warm up for 20 minutes before adjusting.
2. Display the adjustment-pattern application provided on the CD.
3. Access the OSD menu, then select Image Control.
4. Set the main Clock settings correctly first, because the Clock Phase settings depend on the main Clock setting.
When adjusting the Clock and Clock Phase values, if the monitor images become distorted, continue adjusting
the values until the distortion disappears.
To restore the factory settings, access the OSD menu, select Factory Reset, and then select Yes.
Power-Saver Feature
When the monitor is in normal operating mode, the Power light is aqua-white and the monitor uses the normal watts
of power. For power usage, refer to “Technical Specifications” (Appendix B).
The monitor also supports a power-saver mode that is controlled by the computer. When the monitor is in the
reduced-power state, the monitor screen is blank, the backlight is off, and the Power light is amber. The monitor uses
minimum power. When the monitor is “awakened,” a brief warm-up period occurs before the monitor returns to
normal operating mode. The energy-saving reduced power state activates if the monitor does not detect either the
horizontal sync signal or the vertical sync signal. The power-saver feature must be activated on your computer for this
feature to work.
Refer to your computer documentation for instructions on setting energy-saver features (sometimes called
power-management features).
Ambient Light Sensor (Select Models)
An integrated light sensor, on the left front of the monitor, adjusts the LCD backlight output to the current ambient light
conditions. By default, the ambient light sensor is on. Manually enable or disable the sensor using the Image Control
main menu in the OSD. If you adjust the Quick View, Brightness, Contrast, or sRGB functions in the OSD, the light
sensor will automatically be disabled.
NOTE: The energy-saver feature works only when the monitor is connected to computers that have energy-saver
features.
