  8. Avoid exposing the LCD to direct sunlight or another heat source. Orient the LCD away from direct sunlight to reduce glare.
  9. Clean with a soft, dry cloth. If further cleaning is required, see “Cleaning the Display” in this guide for further instructions.
  10. Avoid touching the screen. Skin oils are difficult to remove.

  16. If smoke, an abnormal noise, or a strange odor is present, immediately switch the LCD off and call your dealer or ViewSonic. It is dangerous to continue using the LCD.
  17. 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, consult an electrician for replacement of the outlet.
  18. Protect the power cord from being tread upon or pinched, particularly at the plug, and where it emerges from the equipment. Be sure that the power outlet is located near the equipment so that it is easily accessible.
  19. Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer

  21. Unplug this equipment when it will be unused for long periods.
  22. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

Using the LCD Display

Setting the Timing Mode
Setting the timing mode is important for maximizing the quality of the screen image and minimizing eye strain. The timing mode consists of the resolution (example 1024 x 768) and refresh rate (or vertical frequency; example 60 Hz). After setting the timing mode, use the OSD (On-screen Display) controls to adjust the screen image. For optimal picture quality, please use the recommended timing mode specific to your LCD listed on the “Specification” page. To set the Timing Mode:

  • Setting the resolution: Access “Appearance and Personalization” from the Control Panel via the Start Menu, and set the resolution.
  • Setting the refresh rate: See your graphic card’s user guide for instructions.

Please make sure that your graphics card is set to a 60Hz vertical refresh rate as the recommended setting for most LCDs. Choosing a nonsupported timing mode setting may result in no image being displayed, and a message showing “Out of Range” will appear on the screen.

OSD and Power Lock Settings

  • OSD Lock: Press and hold [1] and the up arrow ▲ for 10 seconds. If any buttons are pressed the message OSD Locked will display for 3 seconds.
  • OSD Unlock: Press and hold [1] and the up arrow ▲ again for 10 seconds.
  • Power Button Lock: Press and hold [1] and the down arrow ▼ for 10 seconds. If the power button is pressed the message Power Button Locked will display for 3 seconds. With or without this setting, after a power failure, your LCD’s power will automatically turn ON when power is restored.
  • Power Button Unlock: Press and hold [1] and the down arrow ▼ again for 10 seconds.

Adjusting the Screen Image
Use the buttons on the front control panel to display and adjust the OSD controls that display on the screen.

ViewSonic VX2252MH 22-inch 1080p 2ms Monitor with HDMI 3

Do the following to adjust the display setting

  1. To display the Main Menu, press the button [1].
    All OSD menus and adjustment screens disappear automatically after about 15 seconds. This is adjustable through the OSD timeout setting in the setup menu.
  2. To select a control to adjust, press ▲ or ▼ scroll up or down in the Main Menu.
  3. After the desired control is selected, press the button [2].
  4. To save the adjustments and exit the menu, press the button [1] until OSD disappears.

The following tips may help you optimize your display

  • Adjust the computer’s graphics card to support a recommended timing mode (refer to the “Specifications” page for recommended settings specific to your LCD). To find instructions on “changing the refresh rate”, please refer to the graphics card’s user guide.
  • If necessary, make small adjustments using H. POSITION and V. POSITION until the screen image is completely visible. (The black border around the edge of the screen should barely touch the illuminated “active area” of the LCD.)
