Auto setup for HP Workstation

Auto setup for HP 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 Quick Setup.

Perform auto setup as follows, when setting the screen resolution to 1280x1024. Otherwise, perform Quick Setup.

  1.  Turn on the power of the monitor, then the workstation.
  2.  Log in as a route user.

     Wait about 15 minutes until the workstation reaches the normal operating temperature.

    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).

  3.  If the terminal emulator (command prompt window) has not yet started,  start it now.
  4.  Type cd \ at the terminal emulator command prompt and then  press Return. You can use any current directory.
  5.  Insert the diskette labeled Setup Option Diskette (For HP) , shipped  with the monitor, into the diskette drive. Type tar -xvf/dev/fdO and press Return.

     The device names fd0 may vary by workstation model. You can list the  device names by typing ls /dev/floppy/ and pressing Return.

    NOTE: The program contained in the setup option diskette is used only  to change the color of the color-bar pattern. It does not change the display driver.

  6.  Type /xcolorbar and press Return. The color-bar pattern appears.

    NOTE: The standard commands of uncompress and xwud are needed  to run this shell script.

  7.  Press the setup switch on the back of the monitor.
     The setup main menu appears in front of the color-bar pattern:

    NOTE: If the screen becomes distorted momentarily during setup, do  not worry. This is not a problem.

     If the distortion continues, go back to the beginning of this step.  If it still persists, perform manual setup.

  8.  Select AUTO SETUP and press the contrast button. "OFF"  automatically changes to "READY" and then to "COMPLETED," and  setup ends automatically.

     If the screen flickers, go back to step 7 and redo the setup several  times until flickering is minimized. If the problem persists,  perform manual setup.

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

     If "AUTO SETUP COMPLETED" is not displayed

     Go back to the beginning of this step 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 the auto setup, the display is still  distorted, perform manual setup.

  9.  Press the setup switch on the back of the monitor to exit the  setup main menu.
  10.  Make sure that the color-bar pattern is as follows:

  11.  Press q to end the color pattern.
  12.  Push the setup switch on the back of the monitor to turn off  the setup main menu.
  13.  Enter the following if you no longer need the files in the  hard disk:

You have completed the monitor setup.
