Cleaning Your Monitor
A special coating is provided on the glass (CRT) surface of this
monitor to reduce a reflection and static electricity on the glass
surface. Due to the delicate coating on the glass surface, use a
lint-free, non-abrasive cloth (cotton or equivalent) and a non-
alcohol, neutral, non-abrasive cleaning solution to minimize dust.
If the screen requires more than a light cleaning, apply a soft neutral
detergent and water directly to a soft cloth and use it upon wringing
water, to clean the glass surface. Clean your monitor regularly.
CAUTION: The following agents will cause damage to the CRT
when cleaning the glass surface: Benzene, thinner, acid/alkaline
detergent, alcohol detergent, detergent with abrasive powder,
detergent with anti-static agent, detergent for cleaning.

slightly downward when viewing the
middle of the screen.
• Position your monitor no closer than
40 cm and no further away than
60 cm from your eyes. The optimal
distance is 50 cm.
• Rest your eyes periodically by focus-
ing on an object at least 6 m away.
• Position the monitor at a 90° angle to windows and other light
sources to minimize glare and reflections. Adjust the monitor tilt
so that ceiling lights do not reflect on your screen.
• If reflected light makes it hard for you to see your screen, use an
