Safety and Maintenance Guidelines

Important Safety Information

The power cord is designed for use with your monitor. To use a different cord, use only a power source and connection compatible with this monitor.

WARNING: Always connect your monitor, the computer, and other equipment to a grounded (earthed) power outlet. To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to your equipment, do not disable the power cord grounding feature. The grounding plug is an important safety feature.
HP 2009m User Manual 3

WARNING: For your safety, be sure that the grounded power outlet you plug the power cord into is easily
HP 2009m User Manual 5

accessible to the operator and located as close to the equipment as possible. To disconnect power from the

equipment, unplug the power cord from the power outlet by grasping the plug firmly. Never pull on the cord.

CAUTION: To protect your monitor, as well as your computer, connect all power cords for your computer and its peripheral devices (such as a monitor, printer, or scanner) to a surge protection device such as a power strip with surge protection or uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
HP 2009m User Manual 7

Not all power strips provide surge protection; the power strips must be specifically labeled as having this ability. Use a power strip whose manufacturer offers a damage replacement policy, so you can replace your equipment if surge protection fails.

Safety Precautions

  • Use only a power source and connection compatible with this monitor, as indicated on the label/back plate of the monitor.
  • Be sure the total ampere rating of the products connected to the outlet does not exceed the current rating of the electrical outlet, and the total ampere rating of the products connected to the power cord does not exceed the rating of the power cord. Look on the power label to determine the ampere rating (Amps or A) for each device.
  • Install your monitor near a power outlet that you can easily reach. Disconnect the monitor by grasping the plug firmly and pulling it from the outlet. Never disconnect the monitor by pulling the cord.
  • Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not walk on the cord.

Maintenance Guidelines

To enhance the performance and extend the life of your monitor:

  • Do not open your monitor cabinet or attempt to service this product yourself. If your monitor is not operating properly or has been dropped or damaged, contact your Hewlett-Packard authorized dealer, reseller, or service provider.
  • Adjust only those controls that are described in the operating instructions.
  • Turn your monitor off when not in use. You can substantially increase the life expectancy of the monitor by using a screen saver program and turning off the monitor when not in use.
  • Keep your monitor in a well-ventilated area, away from excessive light, heat, or moisture.
  • Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation. These openings must not be blocked or covered. Never push objects of any kind into cabinet slots or other openings.
  • Unplug the monitor from the power outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
  • Do not drop the monitor or place it on an unstable surface.
  • When removing the monitor base, you must lay the monitor face down on a soft area to prevent it from getting scratched, defaced, or broken.

The threaded holes that are on the back of the panel are compliant with the VESA standard for mounting flat-panel monitors.

  1. Attach a swing arm or other mounting fixture.

Connecting the VGA (Analog) or DVI-D (Digital) Cable

Use a VGA video cable or a DVI-D video cable (provided with select models). To use DVI, you must have a DVI-compliant graphic card. Connectors are located on the back of the monitor. Be sure the computer and monitor are turned off and unplugged.

Some graphic cards have both a DVI connector and a DVI-to-VGA converter included in the box (select models only). If the monitor has a VGA connector but no DVI connector, use the DVI-to-VGA converter to connect to the computer: Connect the DVI-to-VGA converter to the DVI connector on the computer graphic card, and then connect the VGA cable to the converter and the monitor.
HP 2009m User Manual 31

Connecting the VGA or DVI-D cable—connector locations may vary

To connect the VGA cable

Connect one end of the VGA video cable to the back of the monitor and the other end to the VGA video connector on the computer.

To connect the DVI-D cable

Connect one end of the DVI-D video cable to the back of the monitor and the other end to the DVI video connector on the computer. You can use this cable only if your computer has a DVI-compliant graphic card installed. The monitor DVI-D connector and cable are included with select models only.

NOTE: When using a VGA or DVI signal, you must connect your audio separately because a VGA or DVI signal converts only video data, not audio data. A separate audio connection is not necessary when you use an HDMI signal, because an HDMI signal can convert both video and audio data.
HP 2009m User Manual 33

High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP)

If your monitor supports HDCP, it can receive high-definition content. High-definition content is available in many sources, such as Blu-ray Disc devices or HDTV air or cable broadcasts. If you do not have an HDCP-enabled monitor, you may see a black screen or a lower resolution picture when playing high-definition protected content. Your computer graphic card and monitor must both support HDCP to display protected content.

Connecting the Audio Cable

Connect the built-in monitor speakers to the computer by using the audio cable, as shown in the following illustration.

Connecting the Power Cable

  1. Read the warning below.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to your equipment:
HP 2009m User Manual 5

  • 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.
  • Be sure that the grounded power outlet you plug the power cord into is easily accessible to the operator and located as close to the equipment as possible. A power cord should be routed so that it is not likely to be walked on or pinched by items that are placed upon it or against it.
  • 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.

See “Technical Specifications” (Appendix B) for additional information.

  • Faint vertical bars
  • Thin, horizontal scrolling lines
  • Off-center picture

CAUTION: Burn-in image damage may occur on monitors that display the same static image on screen for a prolonged period of time (12 consecutive hours of non-use). To avoid burn-in image damage on your 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.
