Important Safety Instructions

Important Safety Instructions

Before you plug in your new monitor, read these important safety instructions.

For your safety always connect equipment to a grounded wall outlet. Always use a power cord with a properly grounded plug, such as the one provided with the equipment, or one in compliance with your national safety standards. This equipment can be disconnected from the power by removing the power cord from the power outlet. This means the equipment must be located close to an easily accessible power outlet.

To avoid electrical shock, do not open the monitor’s cover. There are no user- serviceable parts inside. Only qualified service personnel should service these parts.

Make sure your PC is powered off before connecting or disconnecting a display peripheral.
