Auto Setup for OS/2

Auto Setup for OS/2

This procedure, using the setup option diskette, which displays a color-bar pattern before the setup main menu, is recommended for better image quality. If, however, something goes wrong and the diskette is stuck in the middle of this procedure, perform Quick Setup.

To perform auto setup for OS/2:

  1.  Start with the monitor and the PC turned off.
  2.  Turn on the monitor first; then turn on the PC.

    NOTE: The screen remains blue until the computer is ready.
     This is not a problem.

     It an error message is displayed

     If the message UNSUPPORTED VIDEO is displayed, or if nothing  is displayed, check that:

  3.  Insert the diskette labeled Setup Option Diskette (for OS/2)  into the diskette drive.

    NOTE: The application programs included in the setup option diskettes  are used only for displaying the color-bar patterns.  They are not for changing the display driver.

     Wait about 15 minutes until the monitor warms up.

    NOTE: If the monitor is in standby mode ("STANDBY ON"), it might  automatically turn off while you are waiting for it to warm up.  Exit standby mode (refer to the explanation of STANDBY).

  4.  Open the OS/2 full-screen window or an OS/2 window.
  5.  At the command prompt, type A: and press Enter.
  6.  Type TESTPATS and press Enter.

     After about 1 minute, the following color-bar pattern appears.
     The size of the pattern varies with the resolution.
     Move the mouse pointer (and the icon bar and tool bar if they are  displayed) to the bottom center of the screen. Otherwise, setup  might not run properly.

     If, after a few seconds, the setup main menu appears and starts  automatically, go to step 9. If it does not appear  and start automatically, go to the next step.

  7.  Push the setup switch on the back of the monitor.
     The setup main menu appears:

  8.  Push one of the brightness control buttons to select AUTO SETUP.
  9.  Push one of the contrast control buttons. The "AUTO SETUP" line  changes to "START," and auto setup starts. Wait 10 to 20 seconds.

     The "AUTO SETUP" line changes to "COMPLETED" when auto setup is complete.

     If the screen flickers, go back to step 7 and redo the setup several  times until the flicker is minimized, or adjust it manually by doing  manual setup (see Appendix A).

     The screen might be distorted during setup.
     This is not a problem.

     If "AUTO SETUP COMPLETED" is not displayed

     If the "COMPLETED" message is not displayed after 1 minute, make  sure that the PC's screen setting is one of the supported screen resolutions in the table.

     When the setup main menu is on the screen, go back to step 8.  Otherwise, go back to step 7. Repeat the auto setup procedure.
     If the setup procedure does not complete successfully, an "AUTO  SETUP FAILED" message appears. In that case, repeat the auto  setup procedure three times.

     If you still cannot complete the setup, adjust manually by using manual setup, or contact the Display Business Unit  (DBU) helpline.

     If, after you perform auto setup, the display is still  distorted, perform the manual setup described in Appendix A.

  10.  Press Alt+F4 to exit auto setup.

    NOTE: If you change the resolution or the number of colors,  repeat auto setup from step 4.

  11.  Push the setup switch on the back of the monitor to turn off  the setup main menu.

You have completed the monitor setup.
