Important

This electronic user’s guide is intended for anyone who uses the Philips monitor. Take time to read this user manual before you use your monitor. It contains important information and notes regarding operating your monitor. The Philips guarantee applies provided the product is handled properly for its intended use, by its operating instructions, and upon presentation of the original invoice or cash receipt, indicating the date of purchase, dealer’s name and model, and production number of the product.

Safety precautions and maintenance

Warnings
Use of controls, adjustments, or procedures other than those specified in this documentation may result in exposure to shock, electrical hazards, and/or mechanical hazards. Read and follow these instructions when connecting and using your computer monitor. Excessive sound pressure from earphones and headphones can cause hearing loss. Adjustment of the equalizer to maximum increases the earphones and headphones output voltage and therefore the sound pressure level.

Operation

  • Please Keep the monitor out of direct sunlight, very strong bright lights, and away from any other heat source. Lengthy exposure to this type of environment may result in discoloration and damage to the monitor.
  • Keep the display away from oil. Oil may damage the plastic cover of the display and void the warranty.
  • Remove any object that could fall into ventilation holes or prevent proper cooling of the monitor’s electronics.
  • Do not block the ventilation holes in the cabinet.
  • When positioning the monitor, make sure the power plug and outlet are easily accessible.
  • If turning off the monitor by detaching the power cable or DC power cord, wait for 6 seconds before attaching the power cable or DC power cord for normal operation.
  • Please use the approved power cord provided by Philips all the time. If your power cord is missing, please contact with your local service center. (Please refer to the Service contact information listed in the Important information manual.)
  • Operate under the specified power supply. Be sure to operate the monitor only with the specified power supply. Use of an incorrect voltage will cause malfunction and may cause fire or electric shock.
  • Protect the cable. Do not pull or bend the power cable and signal cable. Do not place the monitor or any other heavy objects on the cables, if damaged, the cables may cause fire or electric shock.
  • Do not subject the monitor to severe vibration or high-impact conditions during operation.
  • To avoid potential damage, for example, the panel peeling from the bezel, ensure that the monitor does not tilt downward by more than -5 degrees. If the -5 degree downward tilt angle maximum is exceeded, the monitor damage will not be covered under warranty.
  • Do not knock or drop the monitor during operation or transportation.
  • Excessive usage of the monitor can cause eye discomfort, it’s better to take shorter breaks more often at your workstation than longer breaks and less often; for example, a 5-10 minute break after 50-60-minute continuous screen use is likely to be better than a 15-minute break every two hours. Try to keep your eyes from eye strain while using the screen for a constant period by :
    • Looking at something varying distances after a long period of focusing on the screen.
    • Conscious Blinking often while you work.
    • Gently close and roll your eyes to relax.
    • Reposition your screen to the appropriate height and angle according to your height.
    • Adjusting the brightness and contrast to the appropriate level.
    • Adjust the environment lighting similar to your screen brightness, and avoid fluorescent lighting and surfaces that don’t reflect too much light.
    • See a doctor if you have symptoms.

Maintenance

  • To protect your monitor from possible damage, do not put excessive pressure on the LCD panel. When moving your monitor, grasp the frame to lift; do not lift the monitor by placing your hand or fingers on the LCD panel.
  • Oil-based cleaning solutions may damage the plastic parts and void the warranty.
  • Unplug the monitor if you are not going to use it for an extensive period.
  • Unplug the monitor if you need to clean it with a slightly damp cloth. The screen may be wiped with a dry cloth when the power is off. However, never use organic solvents, such as alcohol, or ammonia-based liquids to clean your monitor.
  • To avoid the risk of shock or permanent damage to the set, do not expose the monitor to dust, rain, water, or excessive moisture environment.
  • If your monitor gets wet, wipe it with a dry cloth as soon as possible.
  • If a foreign substance or water gets in your monitor, please turn the power off immediately and disconnect the power cord. Then, remove the foreign substance or water, and send it to the maintenance center.
  • Do not store or use the monitor in locations exposed to heat, direct sunlight, or extreme cold.
  • To maintain the best performance of your monitor and use it for a longer lifetime, please use the monitor in a location that falls within the following temperature and humidity ranges.
    • Temperature: 0-40°C 32-104°F
    • Humidity: 20-80% RH

Important information for Burn-in/Ghost image

  • Always activate a moving screen saver program when you leave your monitor unattended. Always activate a periodic screen refresh application if your monitor displays unchanging static content. Uninterrupted display of still or static images over an extended period may cause “burn-in”, also known as “after-imaging” or “ghost imaging”, on your screen.
  • “Burn-in”, “after-imaging”, or “ghost imaging” is a well-known phenomenon in LCD panel technology. In most cases, the “burning” “after-imaging” or “ghost imaging” will disappear gradually over some time after the power has been switched off.

Service

  • The casing cover should be opened only by qualified service personnel.
  • If there is any need for any document for repair or integration, please contact your local service center. (Please refer to the Service contact information listed in the Important information manual.)
