HP Compaq LA2405x 24-inch LED Backlit LCD Monitor - Installation

Unfolding the monitor pedestal base

  1. Lift the monitor from its box and place it face down on a flat surface.
  2. Hold down the monitor base with one hand (See Figure 1, Item 1) then grasp the handle with the other hand and unfold the display head 90° (See Figure 1, Item 2).
    Figure : Unfolding the monitor pedestal base
  caution:
Do not touch the surface of the LCD panel. Pressure on the panel may cause non-uniformity of color or disorientation of the liquid crystals. If this occurs the screen will not recover to its normal condition.
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.

Connecting the cables

  1. Place the monitor in a convenient, well-ventilated location near the system.
    note:
    Before connecting the cables, route them through the opening on the monitor's pedestal.
  2. Connect a VGA signal cable, DVI-D signal cable, or DisplayPort signal cable.
    • For analog operation, use the VGA signal cable provided. Connect the VGA signal cable to the VGA connector on the rear of the monitor and the other end to the VGA connector on the system.
    • For DVI digital operation, use the DVI-D sign al cable provided. Connect the DVI-D signal cable to the DVI connector on the rear of the monitor and the other end to the DVI connector on the system.
    • For DisplayPort digital operation, use a DisplayPort signal cable (not provided). Connect the DisplayPort signal cable to the DisplayPort connector on the rear of the monitor and the other end to the DisplayPort connector on the system.
  3. Connect one end of the provided USB cable to the USB hub connector on the rear panel of the system, and the other end to the upstream USB connector on the monitor.
  4. Connect one end of the power cable to the AC power connector on the back of the monitor, and the other end to an electrical wall outlet.
    Figure : Connecting the cables
  warning:
To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the equipment: Do not disable the power cord grounding plug. Th e grounding plug is an important safety feature. Plug the power cord into a grounded (earthed) electric al outlet that is easily accessible at all times. Disconnect power from the equipment by unplugging the power cord from the electrical outlet. For the 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.

Adjusting the monitor

  1. Tilt the monitor's panel forward or backward to set it to a comfortable eye level.
    Figure : Tilting the monitor
  2. Swivel the monitor to the left or right for the best viewing angle.
    Figure : Swiveling the monitor
  3. Adjust the monitor's height so that it is parallel to 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 : Adjusting the height
  4. Pivot the monitor from landscape to portrait orientation viewing to adapt to the application.
    1. Adjust the monitor to the full height position and tilt the monitor back to the full tilt position (See Figure 6, Item 1).
    2. Pivot the monitor clockwise 90° from landscape to portrait orientation (See Figure 6, Item 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 : Pivoting the monitor

Turning on the monitor

  1. Press the power button on the system 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, end user 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.
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. End user 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.

  2. Lay the monitor face down on a flat surface covered by a clean, dry cloth.
  3. Pivot the base 45° clockwise and remove the screw from the back of the monitor, then pivot the base 45° counter-clockwise and remove the other screw from the back of the monitor.
    Figure : Removing the pedestal base screws

    Figure : Removing the pedestal base

Mounting the monitor

The monitor panel can be attached to a wall, swing arm, or other mounting fixture.
  1. Remove the monitor panel from the pedestal base. Click here to view how to remove the monitor panel from the pedestal base.
      caution:
    This monitor supports the VESA industry standard 100-mm mounting holes. To attach a third-party mounting solution to the monitor, four 4-mm, 0.7-pitch, and 10-mm long screws are required. Longer screws must not be used because they may damage the monitor. It is important to verify that the manufacturer’s mounting solution is compliant with the VESA standard and is rated to support the weight of the monitor display panel. For best performance, it is important to use the power and video cables provided with the monitor.
  2. To attach the monitor to a swing arm, insert four 10mm screws through the holes on the swing arm plate and into the mounting holes on the monitor.
    Figure : Mounting the monitor
    To attach the monitor to other mounting fixtures, follow the instructions included with the mounting fixture to ensure that the monitor is safely attached.
  3. Reconnect the cables to the monitor panel.

Locating the rating labels

The rating labels on the monitor provide the spare part number, product number, and serial number. End user may need these numbers when contacting HP about the monitor model. The rating labels are located on the rear panel of the monitor display head.
