warnings and instructions marked on the product.

Special notes on LCD monitors

The following are normal with the LCD monitor and do not indicate a problem.

Due to the nature of the fluorescent light, the screen may flicker during initial use. Turn off the power switch and then turn it on again to make sure the flicker disappears.

You may find slightly uneven brightness on the screen depending on the desktop pattern you use.

The LCD screen has 99.99% or more effective pixels. It may include blemishes of 0.01% or less such as a missing pixel or pixel lit all the time.

Due to the nature of the LCD screen, an afterimage of the previous screen may remain after switching the image, when the same image is displayed for hours. In this case, the screen is recovered slowly by changing the image or turning off the power switch for a few hours.

Cleaning your monitor

Please carefully follow these guidelines when cleaning the monitor:

Always unplug the monitor before cleaning.

Tips and information for comfortable use

Computer users may complain of eyestrain and headaches after prolonged use. Users are also at risk of physical injury after long hours of working in front of a computer. Long work periods, bad posture, poor work habits, stress, inadequate working conditions, personal health and other factors greatly increase the risk of physical injury.

Incorrect computer usage may lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, tenosynovitis or other musculoskeletal disorders. The following symptoms may appear in the hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, neck or back:

numbness, or a burning or tingling sensation

aching, soreness or tenderness

pain, swelling or throbbing

stiffness or tightness

coldness or weakness

If you have these symptoms, or any other recurring or persistent discomfort and/or pain related to computer use, consult a physician immediately and inform your company’s health and safety department.

The following section provides tips for more comfortable computer use.

Finding your comfort zone

Find your comfort zone by adjusting the viewing angle of the monitor, using a footrest, or raising your sitting height to achieve maximum comfort. Observe the following tips:

refrain from staying too long in one fixed posture

avoid slouching forward and/or leaning backward

stand up and walk around regularly to remove the strain on your leg muscles

English

vii

English

Taking care of your vision

Long viewing hours, wearing incorrect glasses or contact lenses, glare, excessive room lighting, poorly focused screens, very small typefaces and low-contrast displays could stress your eyes. The following sections provide suggestions on how to reduce eyestrain.

Eyes

Rest your eyes frequently.

Give your eyes regular breaks by looking away from the monitor and focusing on a distant point.

Blink frequently to keep your eyes from drying out.

Display

Keep your display clean.

Keep your head at a higher level than the top edge of the display so your eyes point downward when looking at the middle of the display.

Adjust the display brightness and/or contrast to a comfortable level for enhanced text readability and graphics clarity.

Eliminate glare and reflections by:

placing your display in such a way that the side faces the window or any light source

minimizing room light by using drapes, shades or blinds

using a task light

changing the display’s viewing angle

using a glare-reduction filter

using a display visor, such as a piece of cardboard extended from the display’s top front edge

Avoid adjusting your display to an awkward viewing angle.

Avoid looking at bright light sources, such as open windows, for extended periods of time.

Developing good work habits

Develop the following work habits to make your computer use more relaxing and productive:

Take short breaks regularly and often.

Perform some stretching exercises.

Breathe fresh air as often as possible.

Exercise regularly and maintain a healthy body.

Adjusting the base

Note: The monitor base is attached onto the monitor before shipment and it is undetachable. Carefully remove the monitor from its packaging.

1Pull the monitor base out fully so that the monitor can be placed on a stable surface in the upright position.

45

2Secure the monitor base by turning the white screws (at the bottom of the base) using the integrated tab or a suitable coin.

Note: Take care when performing the installation to avoid injuring yourself.

Screen position adjustment

15

 

 

To optimize the viewing position, you can adjust the monitor tilt, using both of your hands to hold the edges of the monitor. The monitor can be adjusted to 15 degrees up or 3 degrees down.

Connecting the adapter and AC Power cord

Check first to make sure that the power cord you use is the correct type required for your area.

The monitor has a universal power supply that allows operation in either 100/120 V AC or 220/240 V AC voltage area. No user-adjustment is required.

Plug one end of the AC power cord to the Adapter, and plug the other end into an AC outlet.

For units using 120 V AC:

Use a UL-listed cord set, type SVT wire and plug rated 10 A/125 V.

• For units using 220/240 V AC:

Use a cord set consisting of H05VV-F cord and plug rated 10 A/250 V. The cord set should have the appropriate safety approvals for the country in which the equipment will be installed.

Power saving

The monitor will be switched to “power saving” mode by the control signal from the display controller, as indicated by the blinking blue light.

Mode

Standby/Power saving

The power saving mode will be kept until a control signal has been detected or the keyboard or mouse is activated. The recovery time from “power saving” mode back to “on” is around 3 seconds.

English

Display Data Channel (DDC)

To make installation easier, so long as your system supports the DDC protocol, the monitor is able to plug-and-play. The DDC is a communication protocol through which the monitor automatically informs the host system about its capabilities; for example, supported resolutions and corresponding timing. The monitor supports the DDC2B standard.

MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) (Only for MHL-input Models) Mobile High-Definition Link is a digital interface for transmitting video and audio from an external portable device. It is also capable of charging a portable device (5 V @ 900 mA).

Connecting the devices Plug the MHL-certified cable into the display's HDMI® (MHL) port and the portable device's HDMI®-out port.

MHL MHL

Using MHL

MHL-certified portable devices will automatically display content on the monitor, provided the output display and audio formats are supported by the portable device.

When the portable device is in standby mode, the monitor will show a black screen or turn to standby mode, depending on the portable device’s output signal.

Due to the difference in size and resolution between the monitor and the portable device, you may find the display quality not as crisp as it appears on the portable device. This may be due to the portable device changing the output format.

This monitor only receives content from the portable device. It is not capable of controlling the portable device.
