1

2

Carefully set the monitor on its side.

Hold the base with the tab facing the back of the monitor and align the hooks on the base with the corresponding slots on the bottom of the monitor.

To connect the video and power cables:

1 Position the monitor and your computer so you can easily get at the back panel of each. Make sure that all power cables can reach a correctly grounded electrical outlet.

Caution The openings in the monitor cabinet are for ventilation. Do not block or cover these openings. Do not insert anything into these openings. If you put the monitor in a bookcase or some other enclosed space, make sure to leave at least 6 inches (15 cm) around it for ventilation.

Maintenance

Warning

 

When the monitor is turned off, a small amount of electrical current

 

 

still flows through the monitor. To avoid electrical shock, always

 

 

unplug all power cables and modem cables from the wall outlets

 

 

before cleaning the system.

Caution

 

To keep the monitor in optimal working order:

 

 

 

 

Do not block the ventilation holes.

 

 

Do not expose the monitor to rain or use near water.

 

 

Keep the monitor away from radiators or heat vents.

 

 

Keep the monitor out of direct sunlight.

 

 

Keep the monitor away from any equipment that generates a

 

 

magnetic field.

 

 

Use a screen saver to avoid permanent image burn-in. For more

 

 

information about screen savers, see the documentation that came

 

 

with your computer.

Caution

 

Clean the monitor using a soft cloth lightly moistened with water. Wipe

 

 

 

 

the cabinet, glass panel, and controls.

 

 

Do not use any type of abrasive pad or glass cleaner. You will

 

 

permanently scratch the glass panel.

Make sure that the video cable is connected securely to the back of your computer.

If the power indicator is blinking:

Make sure that your computer is turned on.

Move the mouse or press any key on the keyboard to bring the monitor out of energy saving mode.

Restart your computer with the monitor turned on.

Make sure that the video cable is not damaged.

Check the end of the video cable for any pins that might be bent or pushed in.

Picture is scrambled

If the picture is scrambled or does not look right, use the Reset option in the OSD to return the monitor to its factory default settings.

Display colors are wrong

Restart your computer with the monitor turned on.

Make sure that the video cable is connected securely to the back of your computer.

Make sure that the video cable is not damaged.

Check the end of the video cable for any pins that might be bent or pushed in.

Adjust the contrast and brightness controls to improve the display image.

Picture bounces, jitters, or has waves

Make sure that:

Non-shielded speakers are not placed too close to the monitor.

The monitor is not positioned too close to another monitor, power transformer or adapter, electric fan, fluorescent light, metal shelf, or laser printer.

If none of these suggestions solves the problem, try plugging the monitor into another outlet, preferably one on a different circuit.

Picture has shadows or “ghosts”

Remove any extension cables or switchboxes.

Make sure that the video cable is connected securely to the back of your computer.

Make sure that the video cable is not damaged.

Check the end of the video cable for any pins that might be bent or pushed in.

Color is not uniform

Make sure that:

the monitor warms up for at least 30 minutes before making a final judgment about color uniformity.

Non-shielded speakers are not placed too close to the monitor.

The monitor is not positioned too close to another monitor, power transformer or adapter, electric fan, fluorescent light, metal shelf, or laser printer.

You demagnetize the screen using the Degauss option in the OSD.

Image is not sized or centered correctly

Important safety information

Your Gateway system is designed and tested to meet the latest standards for safety of information technology equipment. However, to ensure safe use of this product, it is important that the safety instructions marked on the product and in the documentation are followed.

Warning

Always follow these instructions to help guard against personal injury

 

and damage to your Gateway system.

 

 

Setting up your system

Read and follow all instructions marked on the product and in the documentation before you operate your system. Retain all safety and operating instructions for future use.

Do not use this product near water or a heat source such as a radiator.

Set up the system on a stable work surface.

The product should only be operated from the type of power source indicated on the rating label.

If your product has a voltage selector switch, make sure that the switch is in the proper position for your area. The voltage selector switch is set at the factory to the correct voltage.

Openings in the monitor case are provided for ventilation. Do not block or cover these openings. Make sure you provide adequate space, at least 6 inches (15 cm), around the system for ventilation when you set up your work area. Never insert objects of any kind into the monitor ventilation openings.

Some products are equipped with a three-wire power cord to make sure that the product is properly grounded when in use. The plug on this cord will only fit into a grounding-type outlet. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug into an outlet, contact an electrician to install the appropriate outlet.

If you use an extension cord with this system, make sure that the total ampere rating on the products plugged into the extension cord does not exceed the extension cord ampere rating.

If your system is fitted with a TV Tuner, cable, or satellite receiver card, make sure that the antenna or cable system is electrically grounded to provide some protection against voltage surges and buildup of static charges.
