    							Selecting Video Input Connectors
    The input connectors are:
    ■VGA connector (analog)
    ■DVI-D connector (digital)
    ■HDMI connector
    The monitor automatically determines which inputs have valid video signals, and displays the image.
    You can connect the VGA cable, the DVI-D cable, or both. If both cables are installed, the default input selection is 
    DVI. The HDMI cable is in place of the DVI-D cable. The source of input can be switched using the Switch Video 
    Input option in the OSD menu. Switching from a VGA to an HDMI input source may take several seconds.
    Identifying Monitor Conditions
    Special messages appear on the monitor screen for the following monitor conditions:
    ■Input Signal Out of Range — Indicates the monitor does not support the video card’s input signal because 
    its resolution or refresh rate are set higher than the monitor supports.
    Change your video card settings to a lower resolution or refresh rate. Restart your computer for the new settings to 
    take effect.
    ■Monitor Going to Sleep — Indicates the screen display is entering a sleep mode. The speakers are turned off 
    in sleep mode.
    ■Check Video Cable — Indicates a video input cable is not properly connected to the computer or monitor.
    ■OSD Lock-out — The OSD can be enabled or disabled by pressing and holding the Menu button on the front 
    panel for 10 seconds. If the OSD is locked, the warning message OSD Lock-out appears for 10 seconds.
    If the OSD is locked, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds to unlock the OSD.
    If the OSD is unlocked, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds to lock the OSD.
    ■No Input Signal — Indicates the monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer on the monitor 
    video input connector(s). Check to see if the computer or input signal source is off or in the power-saver mode.
    ■Auto Adjustment in Progress — Indicates the auto-adjustment function is active. See “Adjusting Screen 
    Quality” in this chapter.
    							Adjusting Screen Quality
    The auto-adjustment feature automatically fine-tunes the image quality for display size, position, clock, and phase each 
    time a new video mode is displayed. For more precise adjustments of VGA input, run the Auto-Adjustment software on 
    the CD. See “Using the Auto-Adjustment Function” in this chapter.
    If you want additional image-quality improvement, use the Clock and Clock Phase controls of the monitor to fine-tune 
    the image. See “Optimizing Analog Video” in this chapter.
    Optimizing Analog Video
    Some monitors contain advanced circuitry that allow the monitor to function as a standard analog monitor. Two 
    controls in the OSD menu can be adjusted to improve analog image performance:
    ■Clock —Increase or decrease the value to minimize any vertical bars or stripes visible on the screen 
    ■Clock Phase —Increase or decrease the value to minimize video distortion or video jitter.
    Use these controls only when the auto-adjustment function does not provide a satisfactory monitor image in 
    analog mode.
    To obtain the best results:
    1.Allow the monitor to warm up for 20 minutes before adjusting.
    2.Display the adjustment-pattern application provided on the CD.
    3.Access the OSD menu, then select Image Control.
    4.Set the main Clock settings correctly first, because the Clock Phase settings depend on the main Clock setting.
    When adjusting the Clock and Clock Phase values, if the monitor images become distorted, continue adjusting 
    the values until the distortion disappears.
    To restore the factory settings, access the OSD menu, select Factory Reset, and then select Ye s.
    Power-Saver Feature
    When the monitor is in normal operating mode, the Power light is green and the monitor uses the normal watts of 
    power. For power usage, refer to “Technical Specifications” (Appendix B).
    The monitor also supports a power-saver mode that is controlled by the computer. When the monitor is in the 
    reduced-power state, the monitor screen is blank, the backlight is off, and the Power light is amber. The monitor uses 
    minimum power. When the monitor is “awakened,” a brief warm-up period occurs before the monitor returns to normal 
    operating mode. The energy-saving reduced power state activates if the monitor does not detect either the horizontal 
    sync signal or the vertical sync signal. The power-saver feature must be activated on your computer for this feature to 
    Refer to your computer documentation for instructions on setting energy-saver features (sometimes called 
    power-management features).
    NOTE: The energy-saver feature works only when the monitor is connected to computers that have energy-saver
