Auto Setup for the Sun Workstation
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 Ouick Setup.
To perform auto setup for the SUN workstation:
How to set the screen resolution (for your reference)
1. Connect the CRT monitor.
2. Power on the Sun workstation.
3. Press the STOP key and A key simultaneously during the system boot. The 'OK" prompt is displayed.
4. Type setenv output-device screen:r1280x1024x67 and press Return
5. Type Reset and press Return.
The resolution is set to 1280x1024, and the vertical frequency is set to 67 Hz.
If an error message is displayed
If the message UNSUPPORTED VIDEO is displayed or nothing is displayed at all, check that:
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). The power management function is not supported on SUN workstations.
The application programs included in the setup option diskettes are only for displaying color-bar patterns. They are not for changing the display driver.
If, after a few seconds, the setup main menu appears and starts automatically, go to step 12. If it does not appear and start automatically, go to the next step.
If the screen flickers, go back to step 10 and redo the setup several times until flickering is minimized. If the problem persists, adjust manually by doing manual setup.
The screen might be distorted during setup. This is not a problem.
If "AUTO SETUP COMPLETED" is not displayed
When the setup main menu is still on the screen, go back to step 11. Otherwise, go back to step 10 and repeat the auto setup procedure. If the setup procedure does not complete successfully, an "AUTO SETUP FAILED" message appears. If this message appears, repeat the auto setup procedure up to three times.
If after retrying three times, you are unable to complete the setup, perform 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.
You have completed the monitor setup.
