2 Safety and Maintenance Guidelines

Important Safety Information

A power cord is included with the monitor. If another cord is used, use only a power source and connection appropriate for this monitor. For information on the correct power cord set to use with the monitor, refer to the Power Cord Set Requirements on page 25 in Appendix C.

HP Zr30w User Manual 1 WARNING! To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the equipment:

  • Do not disable the power cord grounding feature. The grounding plug is an important safety feature.
  • Plug the power cord in a grounded (earthed) outlet that is easily accessible at all times.
  • Disconnect power from the product 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.

To reduce the risk of serious injury, read the Safety and Comfort Guide. It describes proper workstation, setup, posture, and health and work habits for computer users, and provides important electrical and mechanical safety information. This guide is located on the Web at http://www.hp.com/ergo and/or on the documentation CD, if one is included with the monitor.

HP Zr30w User Manual 3 CAUTION: For the protection of the monitor, as well as the computer, connect all power cords for the computer and its peripheral devices (such as a monitor, printer, scanner) to some form of surge protection device such as a power strip 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 the equipment, if surge protection fails.

Use the appropriate and correctly sized furniture designed to properly support your HP LCD monitor.

HP Zr30w User Manual 1 WARNING! LCD monitors that are inappropriately situated on dressers, bookcases, shelves, desks, speakers, chests, or carts may fall over and cause personal injury.

Care should be taken to route all cords and cables connected to the LCD monitor so that they can not be pulled, grabbed, or tripped over.

Maintenance Guidelines

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

  • Do not open the monitor cabinet or attempt to service this product yourself. Adjust only those controls that are covered in the operating instructions. If the monitor is not operating properly or has been dropped or damaged, contact an authorized HP dealer, reseller, or service provider.
  • Use only a power source and connection appropriate for 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 cord does not exceed the rating of the cord. Look on the power label to determine the ampere rating (AMPS or A) for each device.
  • Install the monitor near an 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.
  • Turn the 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.

HP Zr30w User Manual 7 NOTE: Monitors with a “burned-in image” are not covered under the HP warranty.
HP Zr30w User Manual 9HP Zr30w User Manual 11

  • 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.
  • Do not drop the monitor or place it on an unstable surface.
  • Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not walk on the cord.
  • Keep the monitor in a well-ventilated area, away from excessive light, heat or moisture.
  • When removing the monitor stand, you must lay the monitor face down on a soft area to prevent it from getting scratched, defaced, or broken.

Cleaning the Monitor

  1. Turn off the monitor and unplug the power cord from the back of the unit.
  1. Dust the monitor by wiping the screen and the cabinet with a soft, clean antistatic cloth.
  1. For more difficult cleaning situations, use a 50/50 mix of water and Isopropyl alcohol.

HP Zr30w User Manual 3 CAUTION: Spray the cleaner onto a cloth and use the damp cloth to gently wipe the screen surface. Never spray the cleaner directly on the screen surface. It may run behind the bezel and damage the electronics.

CAUTION: Do not use cleaners that contain any petroleum based materials such as benzene, thinner, or any volatile substance to clean the monitor screen or cabinet. These chemicals may damage the monitor.

Shipping the Monitor

Keep the original packing box in a storage area. You may need it later if you move or ship the monitor.

HP Zr30w User Manual 3 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.

The monitor automatically scans the signal inputs for an active input and uses that input for the display. If two 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, then DVI. You can change the default source by pressing the Source button on the front panel.

HP Zr30w User Manual 9HP Zr30w User Manual 11

The HP Quick Release can be removed from the pedestal base and installed to a mounting fixture. It allows you to quickly and securely attach the monitor panel to the mounting fixture.

  1. Remove the monitor panel from the pedestal base. Refer to Removing the Monitor Pedestal Base on page 11 in the previous section.

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 (not provided with the monitor). 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.

  1. Remove the Quick Release from the pedestal base by removing the four screws. Figure 3-11 Removing the HP Quick Release from the Pedestal Base

4 Operating the Monitor

Software and Utilities

The CD that comes with the monitor contains files you can install on the computer:

  • an .INF (Information) file
  • an .ICM (Image Color Matching) file
  • additional software for the monitor model

HP Zr30w User Manual 89 NOTE:  If the monitor does not include a CD, the .INF and .ICM files can be downloaded from the HP monitors support Web site. See Downloading from the Worldwide Web on page 16 in this chapter.
HP Zr30w User Manual 9HP Zr30w User Manual 11

The Information File

The .INF file defines monitor resources used by Microsoft Windows operating systems to ensure monitor compatibility with the computer’s graphics adapter.

This monitor is Microsoft Windows Plug and Play compatible and the monitor will work correctly without installing the .INF file. Monitor Plug and Play compatibility requires that the computer’s graphic card is VESA DDC2–compliant and that the monitor connects directly to the graphics card. Plug and Play does not work through separate BNC type connectors or through distribution buffers/boxes.

The Image Color Matching File

The .ICM files are data files that are used in conjunction with graphics programs to provide consistent color matching from monitor screen to printer, or from scanner to monitor screen. The .ICM file contains a monitor color system profile. This file is activated from within graphics programs that support this feature.

HP Zr30w User Manual 17 NOTE: The ICM color profile is written in accordance with the International Color Consortium (ICC) Profile Format specification.
HP Zr30w User Manual 9HP Zr30w User Manual 11
