The power cable connector is the pri- mary means of detaching the system from the power supply. The monitor should be installed close to a power outlet which is easily accessible. Handle with care when transporting. Save packaging for transporting. Image Persistence: Please be aware that LCD Technology may experi- ence a phenomenon known as Image Persistence. • • • • • • • • • • • Image Persistence occurs when a re- sidual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the screen. Unlike CRT monitors, LCD moni- tors’ image persistence is not per- manent, but constant images being displayed for a long period of time should be avoided. To alleviate im- age persistence, turn off the monitor for as long as the previous image was displayed. For example, if an image was on the monitor for one hour, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to erase the image. When operating the LaCie 300 Se- ries LCD Monitor with a 220-240V AC power source in Europe, use the power cord provided with the moni- tor. In the UK,a BS approved power cord with a moulded plug has a Black (five Amps) fuse installed for use with this equipment. If a power cord is not supplied with this equipment please contact your supplier. When operating the LaCie 300 Se- ries LCD Monitor with a 220-240V AC power source in Australia,use the power cord provided with the moni- tor. If a power cord is not supplied with this equipment please contact your supplier. For all other cases, use a power cord that matches the AC voltage of the power outlet and has been approved by and complies with the safety stan- dard of your particular country. • • • • • •

LaCie 300 Series LCD Monitor User Manual page  Health and Ergonomic Precautions Correct placement and adjustment of the monitor can reduce eye, shoulder and neck fatigue. Check the following when you position the monitor: For optimum performance, allow 20 minutes for warm-up. Adjust the monitor height so that the top of the screen is at or slightly be- low eye level. Your eyes should look slightly downward when viewing the middle of the screen. Position your monitor no closer than 40 cm and no further away than 70 cm from your eyes. The optimal dis- tance is 50 cm. • • • Rest your eyes periodically by focus- ing on an object at least 20 feet away. Blink often. Position the monitor at a 90° angle to windows and other light sources to minimize glare and reflections. Ad- just the monitor tilt so that ceiling lights do not reflect on your screen. If reflected light makes it hard for you to see your screen, use an anti- glare filter. Clean the lcd monitor surface with a lint-free, non-abrasive cloth. Avoid using any cleaning solution or glass cleaner! • • • • Adjust the monitor’s brightness and contrast controls to enhance read- ability. Use a document holder placed close to the screen. Position whatever you are looking at most of the time (the screen or refer- ence material) directly in front of you to minimize turning your head while you are typing. Avoid displaying fixed patterns on the monitor for long periods of time to avoid image persistence (after-im- age effects). • • • • Health and Ergonomic Precautions To maximize ergonomics benefits, we recommend the following: Adjust the brightness until the back- ground raster disappears. Do not position the contrast control to its maximum setting. Use the preset size and position con- trols with standard signals. • • • Use the preset color setting. Use non-interlaced signals with a vertical refresh rate between 60-75 hz. Do not use primary color blue on a dark background, as it is difficult to see and may produce eye fatigue to insufficient contrast. • • •

LaCie 300 Series LCD Monitor User Manual page  Environmental Regulations Congratulations! You have just purchased a TCO’03 approved and labeled product! Your choice has provided you with a prod- uct developed for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to reduc- ing the burden on the environment an to the further development of environ- mentally adapted electronics products. Why do we have environmen- tally labeled computers? In many countries, environmen- tal labeling has become an established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods to the environment. The main problem, as far as computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful substances are used both in the products and during the manufacturing.Since it has not been possible for the majority of electronics equipment to be recycled in a satisfacto- ry way,most of these potentially damag- ing substances sooner or later enter Na- ture. There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy consump- tion levels, that are important from the viewpoints of both the work (internal) and natural (external) environments. Since all methods of conventional elec- tricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (acidic and climate- influencing emissions, radioactive waste, etc.), it is vital to conserve energy. Elec- tronics equipment in offices consume an enormous amount of energy since they are often left running continuously. ■ What does labeling involve? This product meets the requirements for international and environmental labeling of personal computers. The requirements cover a wide range of is- sues, including: environment, ergonom- ics, usability, emission of electrical and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety. The envi- ronmental demands concern restrictions on the presence and use of heavy met- als, brominated and chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlori- nated solvents, among other things. The product must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental plan which must be adhered to in each country where the company implements its operational policy. The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or dis- play, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce its power consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time to reactivate the com- puter shall be reasonable for the user. Labeled products must meet strict en- vironmental demands, for example, in respect of the reduction of electric and magnetic fields, physical and visual er- gonomics and good usability. Environmental Requirements Flame retardants Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, cas- ings and housings. In turn, they delay the spread of fire. Up to thirty percent of the plastic in a computer casing can ■ ■ consist of flame retardant substances. Most flame retardants contain bromine or chloride and these are related to an- other group of environmental toxins, PCBs, which are suspected to give rise to severe health effects, including repro- ductive damage in fish-eating birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative* processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that disturbances in fetus develop- ment may occur. Plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not contain flame retardants with organical- ly bound chlorine and bromine. Flame retardants are allowed in the printed circuit boards since no substitutes are available. Lead** Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and capacitors. Lead damages the nervous system and in higher doses, causes lead poisoning. Requirements permit the inclusion of lead since no replacement has yet been developed. Cadmium** Cadmium is present in recharge- able batteries and in the color-generat- ing layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. Requirements state that batteries, the color-generating layers of display screens and the electri- cal or electronics components must not contain any cadmium. Environmental Regulations

LaCie 300 Series LCD Monitor User Manual page  Environmental Regulations Mercury** Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches, Mercury damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. Requirements state that batteries may not contain any Mercury. It also demands that no mercury is pres- ent in any of the electrical or electronics components associated with the display unit. CFCs (freons) CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards.CFCs break down ozone and thereby dam- age the ozone layer in the stratosphere, causing increased reception on Earth of ultraviolet light with consequent in- creased risks of skin cancer (malignant melanoma). The relevant requirement; Neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the manufacturing and assembly of the product or its packaging. *Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living organisms. **Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are bio-accumulative. This symbol on the product or on its packaging indicates that this product must not be disposed of with your other household waste. Instead, it is your responsibility to dispose of your waste equipment by handing it over to a designed collection point for the re- cycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment. The separate collection and recycling of your waste equipment at the time of disposal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that it is re- cycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. For more information about where you can drop off your waste equipment for recycling, please contact your local city office, your household waste disposal service, or the shop where you purchased the product. LaCie is strongly committed to envi- ronmental protection and sees recycling as one of the company’s top priorities in trying to minimize the burden placed on the environment. We are engaged in developing environmentally friendly products, and always strive to help de- fine and comply with the latest indepen- dent standards from agencies.

Im- age persistence occurs when a residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the screen. Unlike CRT monitors, LCD monitors’ image persistence is not permanent, but constant images being displayed for a long period of time should be avoided.To alleviate image persistence, turn off the monitor for as long as the previous image was displayed. For example, if an image was on the monitor for one hour and a residual image remains, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to erase the image. NOTE: As with all personal display devices, LaCie recommends displaying moving images and using a moving screen saver at regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not in use. Message OUT OF RANGE is displayed (screen is either blank or shows rough images only). Image is displayed only roughly (pixels are missing) and OSD warning OUT OF RANGE is displayed: Either signal clock or resolution is too high. Choose one of the supported modes. OSD warning OUT OF RANGE is displayed on a blank screen: Signal frequency is out of range.Choose one of the supported modes. • • Image is unstable or unfocused. Signal cable should be completely attached to the computer. Use the OSD Image Adjust controls to focus and adjust display by increasing or decreasing the fine total. When the display mode is changed, the OSD Image Adjust settings may need to be read- justed. Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility and recommended signal timings. If your text is garbled, change the video mode to non-interlace and use 60Hz refresh rate. Please be aware that LCD Technology may experience a phenomenon known as Image Persistence.
