	 Warnings
Use of controls, adjustments or
procedures other than those specified
in this documentation may result in
exposure to shock, electrical hazards
and/or mechanical hazards.
Read and follow these instructions
when connecting and using your
computer monitor.
Operation
•	 Please Keep the monitor out of
direct sunlight, very strong bright
lights and away from any other heat
source. Lengthy exposure to this
type of environment may result in
discoloration and damage to the
monitor.
•	 Remove any object that could fall
into ventilation holes or prevent
proper cooling of the monitor’s
electronics.
•	 Do not block the ventilation holes
on the cabinet.
•	 When positioning the monitor, make
sure the power plug and outlet are
easily accessible.
•	 If turning off the monitor by detach-
ing the power cable or DC power
cord, wait for 6 seconds before
attaching the power cable or DC
power cord for normal operation.
•	 Please use approved power cord
provided by Philips at all times. If
your power cord is missing, please
contact your local service center.
(Please refer to Customer Care Con-
sumer Information Center)
•	 Do not subject the monitor to se-
vere vibration or high impact condi-
tions during operation.
•	 Do not knock or drop the monitor
during operation or transportation.
Maintenance
•	 To protect your monitor from pos-
sible damage, do not put excessive
pressure on the LCD panel. When
moving your monitor, grasp the
frame to lift; do not lift the monitor
by placing your hand or fingers on

•	 IMPORTANT: Always activate a mov-
ing screen saver program when you
leave your monitor unattended.
Always activate a periodic screen
refresh application if your monitor
will display unchanging static con-
tent. Uninterrupted display of still
or static images over an extended
period may cause “burn in”, also
known as “after-imaging” or “ghost
imaging”, on your screen.
•	 "Burn-in", "after-imaging", or "ghost
imaging" is a well-known phenom-
enon in LCD panel technology.
In most cases, the “burned in” or
“after-imaging” or “ghost imag-
ing” will disappear gradually over a
period of time after the power has
been switched off.
	 Warning
Failure to activate a screen saver, or
a periodic screen refresh application
may result in severe “burn-in” or “after-
image” or “ghost image” symptoms
that will not disappear and cannot be
repaired. The damage mentioned above
is not covered under your warranty.
Service
•	 The casing cover should be opened
only by qualified service personnel.
•	 If there is any need for any docu-
ment for repair or integration,
please contact with your local
service center. (please refer to the

4. FreeSync
4.	 FreeSync
PC gaming has long been an imperfect
experience because GPUs and monitors update
at different rates. Sometimes a GPU can render
many new pictures during a single update of
the monitor, and the monitor will show pieces
of each picture as a single image.This is called
“tearing.” Gamers can fix tearing with a feature
called “v-sync,” but the image can become jerky
as the GPU waits on the monitor to call for an
update before delivering new pictures.
The responsiveness of mouse input and overall
frames per second are reduced with v-sync,
too.AMD FreeSync™ technology eliminates all
of these problems by letting the GPU update
the monitor the moment a new picture is
ready, leaving gamers with unbelievably smooth,
responsive, tearing-free games.
Followed by the graphic card that are
compatible.

7.1	 Philips’ Flat Panel Monitors
Pixel Defect Policy
Philips strives to deliver the highest
quality products. We use some of the
industry's most advanced manufacturing
processes and practice stringent quality
control. However, pixel or sub pixel
defects on the TFT Monitor panels used
in flat panel monitors are sometimes
unavoidable. No manufacturer can
guarantee that all panels will be
free from pixel defects, but Philips
guarantees that any monitor with an
unacceptable number of defects will
be repaired or replaced under warranty.
This notice explains the different types
of pixel defects and defines acceptable
defect levels for each type. In order to
qualify for repair or replacement under
warranty, the number of pixel defects
on a TFT Monitor panel must exceed
these acceptable levels. For example,
no more than 0.0004% of the sub
pixels on a monitor may be defective.
Furthermore, Philips sets even higher
quality standards for certain types or
combinations of pixel defects that are
more noticeable than others. This policy
is valid worldwide.
subpixel
pixel
Pixels and Sub pixels
A pixel, or picture element, is composed
of three sub pixels in the primary colors
of red, green and blue. Many pixels
together form an image. When all sub
pixels of a pixel are lit, the three colored
sub pixels together appear as a single
white pixel. When all are dark, the three
colored sub pixels together appear as a
single black pixel. Other combinations
of lit and dark sub pixels appear as
single pixels of other colors.
Types of Pixel Defects
Pixel and sub pixel defects appear on
the screen in different ways. There are
two categories of pixel defects and
several types of sub pixel defects within
each category.
Bright Dot Defects
Bright dot defects appear as pixels or
sub pixels that are always lit or 'on'. That
is, a bright dot is a sub-pixel that stands
out on the screen when the monitor
displays a dark pattern. There are the
types of bright dot defects.
One lit red, green or blue sub pixel.
Two adjacent lit sub pixels:
-	 Red + Blue = Purple
- 	 Red + Green = Yellow
- 	 Green + Blue = Cyan (Light Blue)
Page: 19
18
7. Customer care and warranty
Three adjacent lit sub pixels (one white
pixel).
	Note
A red or blue bright dot must be
more than 50 percent brighter than
neighboring dots while a green
bright dot is 30 percent brighter than
neighboring dots.
Black Dot Defects
Black dot defects appear as pixels or
sub pixels that are always dark or 'off'.
That is, a dark dot is a sub-pixel that
stands out on the screen when the
monitor displays a light pattern. These
are the types of black dot defects.
Proximity of Pixel Defects
Because pixel and sub pixels defects
of the same type that are near to one
another may be more noticeable,
Philips also specifies tolerances for the
proximity of pixel defects.
Pixel Defect Tolerances
In order to qualify for repair or
replacement due to pixel defects during
the warranty period, a TFT Monitor
panel in a Philips flat panel monitor
must have pixel or sub pixel defects
exceeding the tolerances listed in the
following tables.

2 adjacent lit subpixels 1
