  warning:
To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the equipment:
Do not disable the power cord grounding plug. The grounding plug is an important safety feature.
Plug the power cord into a grounded (earthed) electrical outlet that is easily accessible at all times.
Disconnect power from the equipment by unplugging the power cord from the electrical outlet.
For your safety, do not place anything on power cords or cables. Arrange them so that no one may accidentally step on or trip over them. Do not pull on a cord or cable. When unplugging from the electrical outlet, grasp the cord by the plug.
note:
An optional speaker bar that mounts on to the monitor is available from HP.

Adjusting the Monitor

note:
Your monitor model may look different than the model in the following illustrations.
  1. Tilt the monitor's panel forward or backward to set it to a comfortable eye level.
    Figure :
  2. Swivel the monitor to the left or right for the best viewing angle.
    Figure :
  3. Adjust the monitor's height so that it is parallel to your eye height for a comfortable viewing position.
    note:
    When the monitor is unfolded for the first time, the display head is locked from adjusting to a full-height position. To adjust the display head to full height, press down on the display head to unlock it then pull up on the display head to raise it to the full-height position.
    Figure :
  4. Pivot the monitor from landscape to portrait orientation viewing to adapt to your application.
    1. Adjust the monitor to the full height position and tilt the monitor back to the full tilt position (1).
    2. Pivot the monitor clockwise 90° from landscape to portrait orientation (2).
        caution:
      If the monitor is not in full height and full tilt position when pivoting, the bottom right corner of the monitor panel will come in contact with the base and potentially cause damage to the monitor.
    Figure :
    note:
    To view information on the screen in portrait mode, you will need to install the Pivot Pro software included on the software and documentation CD. The position of the OSD menu can also be rotated to portrait mode. To rotate the OSD menu, access the OSD menu by pressing the Menu button on the front panel, select OSD Control, then select Rotate OSD.

Turning on the Monitor

  1. Press the power button on the computer to turn it on.
  2. Press the power button on the front of the monitor to turn it on.
  caution:
Burn-in image damage may occur on monitors that display the same static image on screen for a prolonged period of time.* To avoid burn-in image damage on the monitor screen, you should always activate a screen saver application or turn off the monitor when it is not in use for a prolonged period of time. Image retention is a condition that may occur on all LCD screens. Monitors with a “burned-in image” are not covered under the HP warranty.
* A prolonged period of time is 12 consecutive hours of non-use.
note:
If pressing the power button has no effect, the Power Button Lockout feature may be enabled. To disable this feature, press and hold the monitor power button for 10 seconds.
note:
You can disable the power LED in the OSD menu. Press the Menu button on the front of the monitor, then select Management > Bezel Power LED > Off.
When the monitor is powered on, a Monitor Status message is displayed for five seconds. The message shows which input (DisplayPort, DVI, or VGA) is the current active signal, the status of the auto-switch source setting (On or Off; factory default is On), the default source signal (factory default is DisplayPort), the current preset display resolution, and the recommended preset display resolution.
The monitor automatically scans the signal inputs for an active input and uses that input for the display. If two or more inputs are active, the monitor will display the default input source. If the default source is not one of the active inputs, then the monitor will display the highest ranking priority input in the following order: DisplayPort, DVI, then VGA. You can change the default source in the OSD by pressing the front panel menu button and selecting Source Control > Default Source.

Connecting USB Devices

USB connectors are used to connect devices such as a digital camera, USB keyboard, or USB mouse. Two USB connectors are located on the side panel of the monitor.
note:
You must connect the USB hub cable from the monitor to the computer to enable the USB 2.0 ports on the monitor. Refer to Step 3 in Connecting the Cables.
