SPECIAL NOTES ON LCD MONITORS
The following symptoms are normal with LCD monitor and do not indicate a problem.
NOTES
Due to the nature of the fluorescent light, the screen may flicker during initial use. Turn off the Power
Switch and then turn it on again to make sure the flicker disappears.
You may find slightly uneven brightness on the screen depending on the desktop pattern you use.
The LCD screen has effective pixels of 99.99% or more. It may include blemishes of 0.01% or less
such as a missing pixel or a pixel lit all of the time.
Due to the nature of the LCD screen, an afterimage of the previous screen may remain after switching
the image, when the same image is displayed for hours. In this case, the screen is recovered slowly by
changing the image or turning off the Power Switch for hours.

Tips and information for comfortable use
Computer users may complain of eyestrain and headaches after prolonged use. Users are also at risk of
physical injury after long hours of working in front of a computer. Long work periods, bad posture, poor work
habits, stress, inadequate working conditions, personal health and other factors greatly increase the risk of
physical injury.
Incorrect computer usage may lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, tenosynovitis or other
musculoskeletal disorders. The following symptoms may appear in the hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, neck
or back:
numbness, or a burning or tingling sensation
aching, soreness or tenderness
pain, swelling or throbbing
stiffness or tightness
coldness or weakness
If you have these symptoms, or any other recurring or persistent discomfort and/or pain related to computer
use, consult a physician immediately and inform your company’s health and safety department.
The following section provides tips for more comfortable computer use.
Finding your comfort zone
Find your comfort zone by adjusting the viewing angle of the monitor, using a footrest, or raising your sitting
height to achieve maximum comfort. Observe the following tips:
refrain from staying too long in one fixed posture
avoid slouching forward and/or leaning backward
stand up and walk around regularly to remove the strain on your leg muscles
take short rests to relax your neck and shoulders
avoid tensing your muscles or shrugging your shoulders
install the external display, keyboard and mouse properly and within comfort able reach
if you view your monitor more than your documents, place the display at the center of your desk to
minimize neck strain

Taking care of your vision
Long viewing hours, wearing incorrect glasses or contact lenses, glare, excessive room lighting, poorly
focused screens, very small typefaces and low-contrast displays could stress your eyes. The following
sections provide suggestions on how to reduce eyestrain.
Eyes
Rest your eyes frequently.
Give your eyes regular breaks by looking away from the monitor and focusing on a distant point.
Blink frequently to keep your eyes from drying out.
Display
Keep your display clean.
Keep your head at a higher level than the top edge of the display so your eyes point downward
when looking at the middle of the display.
Adjust the display brightness and/or contrast to a comfortable level for enhanced text readability
and graphics clarity.
Eliminate glare and reflections by:
placing your display in such a way that the side faces the window or any light source
minimizing room light by using drapes, shades or blinds
using a task light
changing the display’s viewing angle
using a glare-reduction filter
using a display visor, such as a piece of cardboard extended from the display’s top front edge
Avoid adjusting your display to an awkward viewing angle.
Avoid looking at bright light sources, such as open windows, for extended periods of time.
Developing good work habits
Develop the following work habits to make your computer use more relaxing and productive:
Take short breaks regularly and often.
Perform some stretching exercises.
Breathe fresh air as often as possible.
Exercise regularly and maintain a healthy body.
Warning! We do not recommend using the product on a couch or bed. If this is unavoidable, work
for only short periods, take breaks regularly, and do some stretching exercises.
