•Be sure your monitor is electrically rate d to operate with the AC power available in your location.

•Place the monitor on a solid surface and tre at it carefully. The screen can be damaged if dropped, sharply hit, or touched with a shar p or abrasive implement.
•Put your monitor in a location with low hum idity and a minimum of dust.
•Never use your monitor if the power cable has been damaged. Do not allow anything to rest on the power cable, and keep the cable away from where people could trip over it.

sofa, rug, or other soft surface. Doing so may block the ventilation openings in the bottom of the cabinet. If you put the m onitor in a bookcase or some other enclosed spac e, be
sure to provide adequate ventilation.

the monitor with a damp cloth when necessary, but be sure to unplug the monitor first.
