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.
Setting Up the Monitor Unpacking the Monitor 1. Unpack the monitor. Make sure all contents are included. Store the packing box. 2. Turn off the computer and other attached devices. 3. Determine whether the monitor will be desktop mounted or wall-mounted. See “Installing the Monitor.” 4.
Setting Up the Monitor 3. Holding the base of the monitor, lift up the panel at its top without touching or putting pressure on the screen (1). 4. Remove the shipping strap (do not cut it) (2). 5. Put the shipping strap in a safe place, in case you need it to ship the monitor. 6.
Setting Up the Monitor 6. Follow the instructions included with the mounting fixture to ensure that the monitor is safely attached. The four-threaded mounting holes that are on the back of the panel are compliant with the VESA standard for mounting flat-panel monitors.

Setting Up the Monitor Cable Management The HP LCD monitors have two cable tunnels on either side for cable management. Cables can be easily secured and are hidden when viewed from the front. NOTE: If your monitor has the pivot feature, make sure the cords are set loosely enough so they will not pull and disconnect when the monitor is pivoted.
Setting Up the Monitor CAUTION: The monitor can fall back if the hinge is extended fully and the monitor screen is tilted back too far. Adjusting the Swivel The HP LCD monitor allows a usable range of motion with the swivel feature. CAUTION: To avoid breakage or other damage, avoid applying pressure to the LCD screen while swiveling it or changing the tilt.
Setting Up the Monitor Adjusting the Height The monitor adjusts up and down easily by extending or lowering the hinge. Pivoting the Monitor NOTE: For full functionality of this pivot feature (select models only), the My Display software may need to be installed.
Setting Up the Monitor CAUTION: The first step is important—the double-hinged monitor can scratch the base surface if the monitor is not tilted back enough before pivoting it. 2. If the monitor is in its landscape position, after it is tilted back, pivot it clockwise to portrait position. If it is in portrait position, tilt it back and pivot the monitor counterclockwise to landscape orientation.
