Maintenance Guidelines 

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. 

• 

Adjust only those controls that are described in the operating instructions. 

• 

Turn your monitor off when not in use. You can substantially increase the life expectancy of your monitor by 
using a screen saver and turning off the monitor when not in use. 

• 

Keep your monitor in a well-ventilated area, away from excessive light, heat, or moisture. 

• 

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. 

• 

Unplug your monitor from the wall outlet before cleaning. 

• 

Do not drop your monitor or place it on an unstable surface. 

• 

When removing the monitor pedestal base, you must lay the monitor face down on a soft area to prevent it 
from getting scratched, defaced, or broken. 

 

Cleaning the Monitor 

The monitor is a high-quality optical device that requires special care when cleaning. To clean the monitor, follow 
these steps:  

Turn off the computer and the monitor. 
Unplug your monitor from the wall outlet before cleaning.  

 

 

CAUTION: Do not use benzene, thinner, ammonia, or any volatile substances to clean the 
monitor screen or cabinet. These chemicals may damage the monitor. Do not use liquid 
cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Never use water to clean an LCD screen. 

 

Wipe the screen with a dry, soft, clean cloth.  

• 

If the screen requires additional cleaning, use an antistatic screen cleaner. 

Dust the monitor housing. Use a damp cloth to clean the cabinet.  

• 

If the cabinet requires additional cleaning, use a clean cloth dampened with isopropyl alcohol. 

Plug in the monitor.
