English-2 Recommended use h s i Safety Precautions and Maintenance l g n FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE, PLEASE NOTE E THE FOLLOWING WHEN SETTING UP AND USING THE MULTISYNC LCD COLOUR MONITOR: • 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 other 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 dangerous voltage points, which can be harmful 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 cart, stand or table, as the monitor may fall, causing serious damage to the monitor. • The power supply cord you use must have been approved by and comply with the safety standards of your country. (Type H05VV-F 3G 0.75mm2 should be used in Europe). • In U.K, use a BS-approved power cord with molded plug having a black (5A) fuse installed for use with this monitor. • Do not place any objects onto the monitor and do not use the monitor outdoors. • Do not bend, crimp or otherwise damage the power cord. • Do not use monitor in high temperatured, humid, dusty, or oily areas. • Do not cover vent on monitor. • Do not touch LCD panel surface while transporting, mounting and setting. Applying pressure on the LCD panel can cause serious damage. • To prevent damage to the LCD monitor caused by tipping over due to earthquakes or other shocks, make sure to install the monitor in a stable location and take measures to prevent falling. Immediately unplug your monitor from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: • When the power supply cord or plug is damaged. • If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the monitor. • If the monitor has been exposed to rain or water. • If the monitor has been dropped or the cabinet damaged. • If the monitor does not operate normally by following operating instructions. • If you notice any structural damage such as cracks or unnatural wobbling. • If glass is broken, handle with care. • If monitor or glass is broken, do not come in contact with the liquid crystal and handle with care. • Allow adequate ventilation around the monitor so that heat can properly dissipate. Do not block ventilated openings or place the monitor near a radiator or other heat sources. Do not put anything on top of monitor.

CAUTION • The power cable connector is the primary 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. • Carry the monitor holding the built-in handle and bottom frames of the monitor. • Do not carry holding only the stand.

• Image Persistence: Please be aware that LCD Technology 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, NEC DISPLAY SOLUTIONS recommends displaying moving images and using a moving screen saver at regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not in use. English-3 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 slightly 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 focusing 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. • Adjust the monitor’s brightness and contrast controls to enhance readability. • Use a document holder placed close to the screen. • Position whatever you are looking at most of the time (the screen or reference 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). • Get regular eye checkups. Ergonomics To realize the maximum ergonomics benefits, we recommend the following: • Adjust the Brightness until the background raster disappears. • Do not position the Contrast control to its maximum setting. • Use the preset Size and Position controls with standard signals. • Use the preset Colour Setting. • Use non-interlaced signals with a vertical refresh rate between 60-75 Hz. • Do not use primary colour blue on a dark background, as it is difficult to see and may produce eye fatigue to insufficient contrast. Cleaning the LCD Panel • When the liquid crystal panel is stained with dust or dirt, please wipe with soft cloth gently. • Please do not rub the LCD panel with hard material. • Please do not apply pressure to the LCD surface. • Please do not use OA cleaner it will cause deterioration or discolor on the LCD surface. Cleaning the Cabinet • Unplug the power supply • Gently wipe the cabinet with a soft cloth • To clean the cabinet, dampen the cloth with a neutral detergent and water, wipe the cabinet and follow with a dry cloth. NOTE: Many plastics are used on the surface of the cabinet. DO NOT clean with benzene, thinner, alkaline detergent, alcoholic system detergent, glass cleaner, wax, polish cleaner, soap powder, or insecticide. Do not touch rubber or vinyl to the cabinet for a long time. These types of fluids and fabrics can cause the paint to deteriorate, crack or peel. English-4

This is normal and necessary for all current flat panel technologies when displaying non-native resolutions full screen. In flat panel technologies, each dot on the screen is actually one pixel, so to expand resolutions to full screen, an interpolation of the resolution must be done. NOTE: Technical specifications are subject to change without notice.

English-15 Troubleshooting No picture • The signal cable should be completely connected to the display card/computer. • The monitor does not support DisplayPort converter signal. • The display card should be completely seated in its slot. • Front Power Switch and computer power switch should be in the ON position. • Check to make sure that a supported mode has been selected on the display card or system being used. (Please consult display card or system manual to change graphics mode.) • Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility and recommended settings. • Check the signal cable connector for bent or pushed-in pins. • If the front LED is dark blue, check the status of the IPM mode (see page 12). Power Button does not respond • Unplug the power cord of the monitor from the AC outlet to turn off and reset the monitor. Image Persistence • Please be aware that LCD Technology 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, NEC DISPLAY SOLUTIONS recommends displaying moving images and using a moving screen saver at regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not in use. Message “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed (screen is either blank or shows rough images only) • Image is displayed only roughly (pixels are missing) and OSD warning “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed: Either signal clock or resolution is too high. Choose one of the supported modes. • OSD warning “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed on a blank screen: Signal frequency is out of range. Choose one of the supported modes. Image is unstable, unfocused or swimming is apparent • 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 re-adjusted. • Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility and recommended signal timings. • If your text is garbled, change the video mode to non-interlace and use 60Hz refresh rate. LED on monitor is not lit (no blue or amber colour can be seen) • Power Switch should be in the ON position and power cord should be connected. Picture is not as bright • Make sure ECO MODE and AUTO BRIGHTNESS are turned off. • If the brightness fluctuates make sure AUTO BRIGHTNESS is turned off. Display image is not sized properly • Use the OSD Image Adjust controls to increase or decrease the H. SIZE. • Check to make sure that a supported mode has been selected on the display card or system being used. (Please consult display card or system manual to change graphics mode.) No Video • Make certain the computer is not in a power-saving mode (touch the keyboard or mouse). • Some video cards do not output video signal when monitor is turned OFF/ON or disconnect/connect from the AC power cord under low resolution with DisplayPort. Brightness difference during multiple monitor usage • Change Auto Brightness to OFF and adjust brightness. NOTE: When Auto Brightness is set to ON, the monitor automatically adjusts brightness to the environment. When condition is difference, monitor brightness will be difference. English-16 Using the Auto Brightness function h s i The brightness of the LCD screen can be set to increase or decrease depending on the amount of ambient light within the l g room. If the room is bright, the monitor becomes correspondingly bright. If the room is dim, then the monitor will dim n E accordingly. The purpose of this function is to make the viewing experience more comfortable to the eye in a variety of lighting conditions. The Auto Brightness function is set to 1 by default. SETUP Use the following procedure to select the Brightness Range that the monitor will use when the Auto Brightness function is activated. 1. Set the BRIGHT level. This is the brightness level that the monitor will go up to when the ambient light level is highest. Make sure the room is at its brightest when setting this level. Select “1” or “3” in the AUTO BRIGHTNESS menu (Figure 1). Then use the front buttons to move the cursor up to the BRIGHTNESS setting. Choose the desired brightness level (Figure 2). Figure 1 Figure 2 2. Set the DARK level. This is the level of brightness that the monitor will go down to when the ambient light level is low. Make sure the room is at its darkest when setting this level. Then use the front buttons to move the cursor up to the BRIGHTNESS setting. Choose the desired brightness level (Figure 3). Figure 3 When the “Auto Brightness” function is enabled the Brightness level of the screen changes automatically according to the lighting conditions of the room (Figure 4).
