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. For information on the correct power cord set to use with your monitor, 
see 

Power Cord Set Requirements

 

 

WARNING: 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. Connect 
the equipment to a grounded (earthed) power outlet. 

 

 

 

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. 

 

Safety Precautions 

 

CAUTION: Avoid applying pressure to the LCD screen; doing so can cause damage. 

 

• 

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 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 your 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. 

• 

Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not walk on the cord.
