LaCie 324 Monitor Forward User Manual page  DO NOT OPEN THE MONITOR. There are no user serviceable parts inside and opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous shock hazards or oth- er risks. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Do not spill any liquids into the cabinet or use your monitor near water. Do not insert objects of any kind into the cabinet slots, as they may touch danger- ous voltage points, which can be harm- ful or fatal or may cause electric shock, fire or equipment failure. Do not place any heavy objects on the power cord. Damage to the cord may cause shock or fire. Do not place this product on a sloping or unstable surface, as the monitor may fall, causing serious damage. Do not place any objects onto the moni- tor and do not use the monitor out- doors. The inside of the fluorescent tube lo- cated within the LCD monitor contains mercury. Please follow the bylaws or rules of your municipality to dispose of the tube properly. Do not bend power cord. Do not use monitor in high tempera- tures, humid, dusty, or oily areas. Do not cover vent on monitor. Immediately unplug your monitor from the outlet and refer servicing to qualified ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ personnel under the following condi- tions: When the power supply cord or plug is damaged.

Do not block ventilated openings or place the monitor near a radiator or other heat sources. Do not put anything on top of monitor. The power cable connector is the prima- ry 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 experience a phe- nomenon 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 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, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to erase the image. When operating the LaCie 324 LCD Monitor with a 220-240V AC power source in Europe, use the power cord provided with the monitor. 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 sup- plier. When operating the LaCie 324 LCD Monitor with a 220-240V AC power source in Australia, use the power cord provided with the monitor. 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 standard of your particular country. ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ Safety Precautions and Maintenance

LaCie 324 Monitor Forward User Manual page  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 below eye level. Your eyes should look slight- ly 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 distance 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. Adjust 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 readabil- ity. 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-image 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 verti- cal 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 insuf- ficient contrast. ✦ ✦ ✦

LaCie 324 LCD Monitor Monitor Operation User Manual page 19 3.1. About Zoom Modes and Aspect Ratio Aspect Ratio refers to the ratio of the vertical length to horizon- tal length (number of pixels) of the display or image. The LaCie 324 supports the following aspect ratios: 16:9 16:10 4:3 Virtually all video sources available today use one of these three aspect ratios. 16:10 is the native format of the LaCie 324 LCD Monitor, corresponding to a 1920 x 1200 resolution computer video signal. When using a 4:3 or 16:9 video source, such as an HD Video source or a 1600 x 1200 computer video signal, the monitor can apply a zoom transformation to adjust the sig- nal to the monitor. ✦ ✦ ✦ The four zoom modes are Real, SmartZoom, Zoom and Dx2D and they have the following behavior: Mode Aspect Ratio 4:3 Video 16:9 Video REAL Applies no modification and displays real input signal resolution in the center of the display Smart Zoom Maintains the aspect ratio of the source and upscales it to 1600 x 1200 or 1920 x 1080 Zoom Upscales the source to 1920 x 1080, maximizing its size; some distortion may occur because aspect ratio is not respected Dx2D Extends both sides of pan- orama display to magnify to 1920 x 1200 Note: Refer to the user manuals of your devices for the aspect ratios of their input sources. Note: Refer to the On-Screen Manual for PC-Analog and PC- Digital input aspect ratios.

LaCie 324 LCD Monitor Troubleshooting User Manual page 29 If your LaCie 324 Monitor is not working correctly, please re- fer to the following checklist to determine the source of the problem. If you have gone through all of the points on the checklist and your monitor still does not work properly, please check the FAQs that are regularly published on our website – www.lacie.com. One of these FAQs may provide an answer to your specific question. If you need further assistance, please contact your LaCie reseller or LaCie Customer Support (see section 6. Con- tacting Customer Support for details). Manual Updates LaCie strives to give you the most up-to-date, comprehensive user manuals available on the market. It is our goal to provide you with a friendly, easy-to-use format that will help you quickly install and utilize the many functions of your new device. If your user manual does not reflect the configuration of the product you purchased, please check our web site for the most current version of the user manual. www.lacie.com 5. ���������������� Troubleshooting Problem Solution No picture The signal cable should be completely connected to the display card/computer. The display card should be completely seated in its slot. Front power button and computer power switch should be in the ON position. Check to make sure that the resolution selected in the operating system is supported by the moni- tor (please consult display card or system manual to change graphics mode). Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility and recommended set- tings. Check the signal cable connector for bent or pushed-in pins. Verify that you have selected the right video input port (you can cycle through the video ports by hitting the INPUT key on the front panel of your monitor). ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ Power key does not respond Unplug the monitor power cord from the AC outlet to turn off and reset the monitor. LED on monitor is not lit Power button should be in the ON position and power cord should be connected. Image Persistence Please be aware that LCD monitors may experience a phenomenon known as “image persistence.” Image 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 us- ing a moving screen saver at regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not in use. OSD warning OUT OF RANGE is displayed and image is displayed only roughly (pixels are missing) Either signal clock or resolution is too high. Choose one of the supported modes.

LaCie 324 LCD Monitor Troubleshooting User Manual page 30 Problem Solution OSD warning OUT OF RANGE or INPUT NOT SUPPORTED 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 readjusted. Make sure your video card is compatible with recommended signal timings of the monitor. If your text is garbled, change the video mode to non-interlaced and use 60Hz refresh rate. ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ Display image is not sized properly Use the OSD Video Settings or HDMI Settings / Aspect Ratio control to adjust the image size. Make sure your display video card and system are compatible with the selected mode of the moni- tor (please consult display video card or system manual to change graphics mode.) No signal Make certain the computer is not in a power-saving mode (touch the keyboard or mouse). If video does not return to the screen, turn the power off and on again. No sound coming out of the headphones or speakers Verify that your headphone or speaker cable is properly plugged into the audio out port If your audio is coming from your computer verify that the computer-to-monitor audio cable is properly plugged into your computer sound card (green connector) as well as the monitor’s line in audio port located next to the video signal input port you are using. The volume may be too low. Verify in your operating system’s sound options that volume is not too low. The audio output may be muted. Verify in your operating system’s sound options that the sound has not been muted. ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦
