Introduction The Compaq P110 Color Monitor is a high-resolution, large screen monitor intended for use with high-end graphics controller boards from Compaq. The large screen is recommended for advanced graphics user interfaces (GUIs), high performance graphics and digital video applications such as computer-aided design, computer-aided engineering, desktop publishing, document image processing, and Windows 95 and Windows NT applications.
The monitor features include the following:
■ ■ Fault Management and Asset Control
Setting Up the To set up the monitor, ensure that the power is turned off to the monitor, computer system, and other attached devices, then
follow these steps:
1. Place the monitor in a convenient, well-ventilated location near, but not on top of, your computer.
WARNING: This monitor weighs approximately 70 pounds and is not intended to be placed on top of a computer. Place the monitor directly on a desktop or other work surface. To reduce the risk of possible injury, do not attempt to lift the monitor by yourself.
Be sure the signal cable aligns with the 15-pin connector. Do not force the cable onto the connector or you may damage the signal cable.
4. Connect the monitor power cord 3to the rear panel of the monitor, then plug the other end into an electrical outlet 4 that is easily accessible and close to the monitor.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to your equipment, do not disable the power cord grounding feature. This equipment is designed to be connected to a grounded (earthed) power outlet that is easily accessible to the operator. The grounding plug is an important safety feature.
CAUTION: Be sure that the power outlet you plug your power cord into is easily accessible and located as close to the monitor as possible. When you need to disconnect power to the equipment, be sure to unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
Using USB Connectors
The base of the monitor has five Universal Serial Bus (USB) connectors. Four of these connectors, 1, 3, 4, and 5, are for connecting USB compatible Plug and Play devices such as a keyboard, mouse, or video camera. USB connector 2is used to connect the USB signal cable to the computer. The USB signal cable is included with the monitor.
A signal cable with BNC connectors may be used in place of the 15-pin signal cable. To connect two computers to the monitor, a BNC connector may be used together with the 15-pin signal cable. If you have separately purchased a signal cable with BNC connectors, use the following instructions to connect the signal cable to the monitor.
✎ Fault Management and Asset Control are not supported by the monitor when BNC connectors are used.
1. Connect the five BNC connectors to the monitor. Push in and twist the connectors clockwise until they are locked into place. The color of the wires may vary, so refer to the manufacturer's instructions included with the BNC connectors. Usually, the connectors are color coded from left to right in the following order:
1 Red (R) for the red video connector
2 Green (G) for the green video connector
3 Blue (B) for the blue video connector
4 White for horizontal sync (H)
5 Black for vertical sync (V)
CAUTION: When using a signal cable with BNC connectors, make sure the BNC/D-Sub control on the monitor’s on-screen display is set to the correct setting.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to your equipment, do not disable the power cord grounding feature. This equipment is designed to be connected to a grounded (earthed) power outlet that is easily accessible to the operator. The grounding plug is an important safety feature. CAUTION: Be sure that the power outlet you plug your power cord into is easily accessible and located as close to the monitor as possible. When you need to disconnect power to the equipment, be sure to unplug the power cord from the power outlet.

The adjustments for screen settings are located in the on-screen display and can be viewed in one of five available languages. The on-screen Main Menu displays the following nine functions:
Some functions will have up to three menu levels.
This monitor uses an aperture grille CRT for excellent screen performance. At times the shadows of two small horizontal lines may appear on the screen background. This is not a defect. The wires are there to reduce susceptibility to horizontal vibration.
To launch the on-screen display Main Menu:
For example, to select the Position menu, press the Minus button 2until Size and Position is highlighted, then press the Select button 1to choose it.
Monitor with On-Screen Display
The on-screen display is easy to use, just follow the instructions on the screen.
The display resolutions listed below are the most commonly used modes and are set as factory defaults. This monitor automatically recognizes these preset modes when they are requested by a software program and will provide the user with a properly sized and centered display.
The video controller signal may occasionally call for a mode that is not preset if:
If this occurs, you may need to readjust the parameters of the monitor screen by using the on-screen display. User changes can be made to any or all of these modes and saved in memory. The monitor automatically stores the new setting, then automatically recognizes the new mode just as it does a preset mode. In addition to the 21 preset modes that can be changed and stored, there are 15 user modes that can be entered and stored.
To revert back to the factory default settings, select Reset from the Factory Reset menu in the on-screen display, and the factory default resolutions will replace the user changes made for the operating original display mode.
The energy saver feature has three different modes of operation:
By selecting settings in the computer's Energy Saver utility, you are able to determine the length of inactivity before the monitor goes into suspend or sleep mode.
The following table describes the monitor energy saver levels available during the different modes of operation.
|Energy Saver Levels*|
|Full Power||Less than 160 watts||ON = Normal operation Power LED is green.|
|Suspend||Less than 15 watts||Monitor screen is blanked. Power LED turns yellow. Full power mode returns quickly.|
|Sleep||Less than 8 watts||Monitor screen is blanked. Power LED turns amber. There is a brief warm-up period before returning to full power mode.|
*The energy saver levels listed are for the monitor only and do not include any USB devices connected to the USB ports. For information on specific USB power levels, refer to the reference manual that comes with the USB device.
Refer to your computer manual for instructions on setting energy saver features (sometimes referred to as power management features).
✎The energy saver features for monitors only work when connected to computers that have energy saver features.
Care and This section explains how to care for and maintain your Compaq monitor during normal everyday use.
To protect your monitor from overheating and other types of damage, follow these suggestions:
To clean the monitor, follow these steps:
If the screen requires additional cleaning, use any antistatic CRT screen cleaner.
CAUTION: Do not use benzene, thinner, or any volatile substance to clean the monitor. These chemicals may damage the cabinet finish.
Keep the original packing box in a storage area. You may need it later if you move or ship your monitor.
Adjusting Picture Allow the monitor to warm up for 30 minutes before performing the following procedures. The picture image
stabilizes after a warm-up period.
For best results, set your screen to a dark background (such as the DOS prompt) before adjusting the following settings:
The default image size is preset at the factory. The Size and Position controls in the on-screen display can be used to increase the screen size beyond the default setting. However, expanding the screen image beyond the default settings may degrade the focus at the outer edge of the screen.
To enhance focus, use the lowest brightness level that gives satisfactory results in your viewing environment.
✎Settings that maximize contrast may not offer optimum focus,
and settings that maximize focus may not offer optimum
