Dell™ 1401FP Flat Panel Color Monitor

Quick Setup Guide

Safety Instructions

Observe the following safety guidelines when connecting and using your monitor:
Be sure that your monitor is electrically rated to operate with the AC power available in your
location.
Locate your monitor near an easily accessible electrical outlet.
Place the monitor on a solid surface and treat it carefully. The screen can be damaged if dropped,
sharply hit, or touched with a sharp or abrasive implement.
Put your monitor in a location with low humidity and a minimum of dust.
Never use your monitor if the power cable has been damaged. Do not allow anything to rest on the
power cable, and keep the cable away from where people could trip over it.
Never insert anything metallic into the monitor openings. Doing so may create the danger of
electric shock.
To avoid electric shock, never touch the inside of the monitor. Only a qualified technician should
open the monitor' s case.
Be sure to hold the plug, not the cable, when disconnecting the monitor from an electrical outlet.
Openings in the monitor cabinet are provided for ventilation. To prevent overheating, these
openings should not be blocked or covered. Also, avoid using the monitor on a bed, sofa, rug, or
other soft surface. Doing so may block the ventilation openings in the bottom of the cabinet. If you
put the monitor in a bookcase or some other enclosed space, be sure to provide adequate
ventilation.
Do not expose the monitor to rain or use it near water. If the monitor accidentally gets wet, unplug
it and contact an authorized dealer immediately. You can clean the exterior of the monitor with a
damp cloth when necessary, but be sure to unplug the monitor first.
If your monitor does not operate normally— in particular, if there are any unusual sounds or smells
coming from it— unplug the monitor immediately and contact an authorized dealer or service
center.
