- Heed all warnings and follow all instructions.
- Sit at least 18” / 45cm from the monitor.
- When installing the monitor, please leave 10cm of open space around the monitor for ventilation safety purposes.
- Always handle the display with care when moving it.
- Exercise caution when removing the rear cover of the monitor. This monitor contains high-voltage parts.
- Do not use this equipment near water. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose the monitor to rain or moisture.
- Avoid exposing the monitor to direct sunlight or other sources of sustained heat. Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other devices (including amplifiers) that may increase the temperature of the monitor to dangerous levels.
- Clean with a soft, dry cloth. If further cleaning is required, see “Cleaning the Display” in this guide for further instructions.
- Avoid touching the screen. Skin oils are difficult to remove.
- Do not touch, rub or apply pressure to the monitor screen, as it may permanently damage the screen.
- Place the monitor in a well-ventilated area. Do not place anything on the display that prevents heat dissipation.
- Do not place heavy objects on the display, video cable, or power cord.
- If smoke appears, an abnormal noise or a strange odor is present, immediately switch the display off and call your dealer or ViewSonic. It is dangerous to continue using the display.
- Do not attempt to circumvent the safety provisions of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades one wider than the other. A grounding-type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade and the third prong are provided for your safety. If the plug does not fit into your outlet, obtain an adaptor and do not attempt to force the plug into the outlet.
- When connecting to a power outlet, DO NOT remove the ground prong. Please ensure grounding prongs are NEVER REMOVED.
- Protect the power cord from being trodden upon or pinched, particularly at the plug, and at the point where it emerges from the equipment. Be sure that the power outlet is located near the equipment so that it is easily accessible.
- Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
- Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specified by the manufacturer, or sold with the equipment. When a cart is used, use with caution when moving the cart/equipment combination to avoid injury from tipping over.
- Unplug this equipment when it will be unused for long periods of time.
- Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Service will be required when the unit has been damaged in any way, such as: if the power-supply cord or plug is damaged, if the liquid is spilled onto or objects fall into the unit, if the unit is exposed to rain or moisture, or if the unit does not operate normally or has been dropped.
- Excessive sound pressure from ear-/headphones can cause hearing damage /hearing loss.
- Adjustment of the volume control as well as the equalizer may increase the ear-/ headphones output voltage and therefore, the sound volume level.
- The factors influencing the ear-/headphone output other than those specified by the manufacturer (e.g. operating system, equalizer software, firmware, driver) may increase the ear-/ headphone output voltage and therefore, the sound volume level.

Driver Installation (Windows 10 Setup) In order to install the driver, first connect your monitor to your PC, boot up your PC (make sure to first turn on the monitor first) and make sure your internet is available. When the PC has finished booting up, your PC should auto-detect the monitor. To ensure auto-detection is successful, go to ‘Advanced Display Settings’ under your system ‘Display Settings’ (screen resolution) window. There you can verify your ViewSonic monitor has been recognized by your PC in the ‘Color Management’ section of your advanced settings.
If your PC has not auto-detected the monitor but is still functioning, you can download the driver from the ViewSonic website and install it then restart. your computer and follow the steps above again. It is not imperative for your computer to detect the monitor for normal use, but it is recommended. If you encounter additional problems or have questions, please contact Customer Support.
Adjusting the Screen Image
Setting the Timing Mode
Set your monitor resolution to its recommended resolution (see section “specification”) to get the best experience possible, with brilliant color and crisp text. Here is how:
- Go to your display resolution settings window (each operating system will have a different process to get there).
- Next, adjust the display resolution setting to match your monitor’s native resolution. This will provide you with the best usage experience.
If you have difficulty setting the resolution or you do not see the recommended resolution as an available option, you may need a newer video card driver. Contact your computer or video card manufacturer to obtain the latest driver. If necessary, make small adjustments using H. POSITION and V. POSITION until the screen image is completely visible. (*for analog only). (The black border around the edge of the screen should barely touch the illuminated “active area” of the LCD monitor.)
