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.
WARNING: For your safety, 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. 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).
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.
- 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.
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.
