Using the Display

Setting the Timing Mode
Setting the timing mode is important for maximizing the quality of the screen image and minimizing eye strain. The timing mode consists of the resolution (example 1024 x 768) and refresh rate (or vertical frequency; example 60 Hz). After setting the timing mode, use the OSD (On-screen Display) controls to adjust the screen image. For optimal picture quality, please use the recommended timing mode specific to your display listed on the “Specification” page.

To set the Timing Mode:

  • Setting the resolution: Access “Appearance and Personalization” from the Control Panel via the Start Menu, and set the resolution.
  • Setting the refresh rate: See your graphics card’s user guide for instructions.

OSD and Power Lock Settings

  •  OSD Lock: Press and hold [1] and the up arrow ▲ for 10 seconds. If any other buttons are pressed the message OSD Locked will display for 3 seconds.
  •  OSD Unlock: Press and hold [1] and the up arrow ▲ again for 10 seconds.
  •  Power Button Lock: Press and hold [1] and the down arrow ▼ for 10 seconds. If the power button is pressed the message Power Button Locked will display for 3 seconds. With or without this setting, after a power failure, your display’s power will automatically turn ON when power is restored.
  • Power Button Unlock: Press and hold [1] and the down arrow ▼ again for 10 seconds.

The following tips may help you optimize your display:

  • Adjust the computer’s graphics card to support a recommended timing mode (refer to “Specifications” page for recommended setting specific to your LCD display). To find instructions on “changing the refresh rate”, please refer to the graphics card’s user guide.

Cleaning the Display


To clean the screen:

  • Wipe the screen with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth. This removes dust and other particles.
  • If the screen is still not clean, apply a small amount of non-ammonia, non-alcohol based glass cleaner onto a clean, soft, lint-free cloth, and wipe the screen.

To clean the casing:

  • Use a soft, dry cloth.
  • If the casing is still not clean, apply a small amount of a non-ammonia, non-alcohol based, mild non-abrasive detergent onto a clean, soft, lint-free cloth, then wipe the surface.


  • ViewSonic® does not recommend the use of any ammonia or alcohol-based cleaners on the display screen or case. Some chemical cleaners have been reported to damage the screen and/or case of the display.
  • ViewSonic will not be liable for damage resulting from use of any ammonia or alcohol based cleaners.


No power

  • Make sure the power button (or switch) is ON.
  • Make sure A/C power cord is securely connected to the display.
  • Plug another electrical device into the power outlet to verify that the outlet is supplying proper voltage.
