Say hello to a more sustainable product
IT products are associated with a wide range of sustainability risks throughout their life cycle. Human rights violations are common in the factories. Harmful substances are used both in products and their manufacture. Products can often have a short lifespan because of poor ergonomics, low quality, and when they are not able to be repaired or upgraded.

This product is a better choice.
It meets all the criteria of TCO Certified, the world’s most comprehensive sustainability certification for IT products. Thank you for making a responsible product choice, that helps drive progress towards a more sustainable future! Criteria in TCO Certified have a life-cycle perspective and balance environmental and social responsibility.

Conformity is verified by independent and approved verifiers that specialize in IT products, social responsibility, or other sustainability issues. Verification is done both before and after the certificate is issued, covering the entire validity period. The process also includes ensuring that corrective actions are implemented in all cases of factory non-conformities. Last but not least, to make sure that the certification and independent verification are accurate, both TCO Certified and the verifiers are reviewed regularly.

Safety information

  • Before setting up the monitor, carefully read all the documentation that came with the package.
  • To prevent fire or shock hazards, never expose the monitor to rain or moisture.
  • Never try to open the monitor cabinet. The dangerous high voltages inside the monitor may result in serious physical injury.
  • If the power supply is broken, do not try to fix it by yourself. Contact a qualified service technician or your retailer.
  • Before using the product, make sure all cables are correctly connected and the power cables are not damaged. If you detect any damage, contact your dealer immediately.
  • Slots and openings on the back or top of the cabinet are provided for ventilation. Do not block these slots. Never place this product near or over a radiator or heat source unless proper ventilation is provided.
  • The monitor should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult your dealer or local power company.
  • Use the appropriate power plug that complies with your local power standard.
  • Do not overload power strips and extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
  • Avoid dust, humidity, and temperature extremes. Do not place the monitor in any area where it may become wet. Place the monitor on a stable surface.
  • Unplug the unit during a lightning storm or if it will not be used for a long period. This will protect the monitor from damage due to power surges.
  • Never push objects or spill liquid of any kind into the slots on the monitor cabinet.
  • To ensure satisfactory operation, use the monitor only with UL-listed computers that have appropriate configured receptacles marked between 100-240V AC.
  • If you encounter technical problems with the monitor, contact a qualified service technician or your retailer.
  • Adjustment of the volume control as well as the equalizer to other settings than the center position may increase the ear-/headphone output voltage and therefore the sound pressure level.

Care & Cleaning

  • Before you lift or reposition your monitor, it is better to disconnect the cables and power cord. Follow the correct lifting techniques when positioning the monitor. When lifting or carrying the monitor, grasp the edges of the monitor. Do not lift the display by the stand or the cord.
  • Cleaning. Turn your monitor off and unplug the power cord. Clean the monitor surface with a lint-free, non-abrasive cloth. Stubborn stains may be removed with a cloth dampened with a mild cleaner.
  • Avoid using a cleaner containing alcohol or acetone. Use a cleaner intended for use with the monitor. Never spray cleaner directly on the screen, as it may drip inside the monitor and cause an electric shock.

The following symptoms are normal with the monitor:

  • You may find slightly uneven brightness on the screen depending on the desktop pattern you use.
  • When the same image is displayed for hours, an afterimage of the previous screen may remain after switching the image. The screen will recover slowly or you can turn off the Power Switch for hours.
  • When the screen becomes black flashes, or cannot work anymore, contact your dealer or service center to fix it. Do not repair the screen by yourself!
