Using Your VX730 or VX930 Monitor

Setting up the monitor

Setting up the monitor consists of two procedures: attaching the base and connecting the monitor cables. If you are setting up your computer for the first time, see the setup poster for more information about connecting additional peripheral devices.

To attach the base:

1

2

Carefully set the monitor on its side with the bottom of the monitor facing you.

Hold the base so the rounded end is pointing toward the back of the monitor, then align the hooks on the bottom of the base with the corresponding slots on the bottom of the monitor.

Retaining latch

3 Slide the base toward the front of the monitor so all hooks are securely in place. The retaining latch clicks into place when the base is attached correctly.

4 Carefully set the monitor upright and place it on a sturdy, level surface.

Setting up the monitor

To connect the power and video 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.

2 Connect the video cable to the matching (blue) video port on the back of your computer.

3 Tighten the screws on the video cable connectors to keep them from coming loose. Tightening the screws also prevents radio and TV interference.

Starting the monitor

Caution Do not store tapes or diskettes next to the monitor because the monitor generates a strong magnetic field during startup. This field can erase or damage data stored on magnetic tapes or diskettes.

2 Turn on your computer.

3 After your computer is running, the power LED on the monitor should be green. If not, check the connections. For more troubleshooting information, see “Troubleshooting” on page 16.

4 Adjust the controls to get the ideal image size and position for you. For more information, see “Adjusting monitor settings” on page 8.
