Safety and Maintenance
Guidelines
Important Safety Information
A power cord is included with your monitor. If another cord is
used, use only a power source and connection appropriate for this
monitor. For information on the correct power cord set to use with
your monitor, refer to the “Power Cord Set Requirements” section
in Appendix C.
ÅWARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to your
equipment, do not disable the power cord grounding feature. This
equipment is designed to be connected to a grounded (earthed)
power outlet that is easily accessible to the operator. The grounding
plug is an important safety feature.
ÅWARNING: For your safety, be sure that the power outlet you plug
the power cord into is easily accessible and located as close to the
equipment as possible. When you need to disconnect the power to
the equipment, unplug the power cord from the power outlet by
grasping the plug firmly. Never pull on the cord.
User Guide 2–1
Page: 9
Safety and Maintenance Guidelines
ÄCAUTION: For the protection of your monitor, as well as your
computer, connect all power cords for your computer and its
peripheral devices (such as a monitor, printer, scanner) to some form
of surge protection device such as a power strip 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.
Maintenance Guidelines
To enhance the performance and extend the life of your monitor:
■	 Do not open your monitor cabinet or attempt to service this
product yourself. Adjust only those controls that are covered
in the operating instructions. If your monitor is not operating
properly or has been dropped or damaged, contact your HP
authorized dealer, reseller, or service provider.
■	 Use only a power source and connection appropriate for 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 cord does not exceed the rating of the cord. Look on the
power label to determine the ampere rating (AMPS or A) for
each device.
■	 Install your monitor near an 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.
■	 Turn your monitor off when not in use. You can substantially
increase the life expectancy of your monitor by using a screen
saver program and turning off the monitor when not in use.

on the cord.
■	 Keep your monitor in a well-ventilated area, away from
excessive light, heat or moisture.

the on-screen display can be adjusted to improve image
performance: Clock and Clock Phase.
✎The Clock and Clock Phase controls are adjustable only when
using an analog input. These controls are not adjustable for

4–14 User Guide
Page: 44
Operating the Monitor
✎The Clock must first be set correctly since the Clock Phase
settings are dependent on the main Clock setting.
Use these controls only when the auto-adjust function does not
provide a satisfactory image.
■	 Clock—Increase/decrease the value to minimize any vertical
bars or stripes visible on the screen background.
■	 Clock Phase—Increase/decrease the value to minimize video
distortion or video jitter.
✎When using the controls, you will obtain the best results by using
the Auto-Adjustment pattern application provided on the CD.
✎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, select Yes
from the Factory Reset menu in the on-screen display.
Using the HP Display Assistant Utility
HP Display Assistant (included on the software and
documentation CD) is a software utility that guides you through
the tuning process with easy to understand instructions and
background patterns designed for each monitor control. It
provides:
■	 Accurate screen calibration through the use of step-by-step
instruction Wizards to obtain the best overall image quality.
■	 Software control of the monitor image and color settings to
eliminate dependence on your monitor’s front panel buttons
and On-Screen Display (OSD) menu.
■	 Defined preset display settings for each individual user in a
multi-user environment.
User Guide	 4–15

Operating the Monitor
■	 Multiple preset display settings for a single user based on
content and ambient lighting.
■	 Asset Management and Power Management capabilities that
include remote control for individual or a group of displays
on the domain from a centralized console application.
The HP Display Assistant Utility has two modes of operation:
Wizard and OSD mode. The preferred method of use is Wizard
mode, which takes you through a step-by-step process to
accurately calibrate the monitor. This method relies on a
sequence of steps that will obtain the best display results when
completed.
✎Refer to HP Display Assistant documentation for additional
information on monitor control limitations based on the version
of your computer’s operating system.

HP Display LiteSaver
HP Display LiteSaver is a software application, available on the
CD, that increases monitor life and saves energy. It allows you to
place your monitor into its low power sleep mode at predefined
times by shutting down or reducing power to most internal
circuits. This helps protect the LCD panel against image
retention. Image retention can occur when the monitor is left on
while displaying the same image for an extended period of time,
leaving a shadow of the image on the screen.
Installing the HP Display LiteSaver Software
1. Insert the CD in the computer CD-ROM Drive. The CD
menu displays.
2. Select “Install HP Display LiteSaver Software.”
3. After installing the software, click the HP Display LiteSaver
icon in the Windows system tray or right-click the icon and
select Configure... from the pop-up menu.
