CAUTION:Burn-in image damage may occur on monitors that display the same static image on
screen for a prolonged period of time.* To avoid burn-in image damage on the monitor screen, you
should always activate a screen saver application or turn off the monitor when it is not in use for a
prolonged period of time. Image retention is a condition that may occur on all LCD screens. Monitors
with a “burned-in image” are not covered under the HP warranty.

NOTE:You can disable the power LED in the OSD menu. Press the Menu button on the front of the
monitor, then select Management > Bezel Power LED > Off.
When the monitor is powered on, a Monitor Status message is displayed for five seconds. The
message shows which input (DisplayPort, DVI, or VGA) is the current active signal, the status of the
auto-switch source setting (On or Off; factory default is On), the default source signal (factory default
is DisplayPort), the current preset display resolution, and the recommended preset display resolution.
The monitor automatically scans the signal inputs for an active input and uses that input for the
display. If two or more inputs are active, the monitor will display the default input source. If the default
source is not one of the active inputs, then the monitor will display the highest ranking priority input in
the following order: DisplayPort, DVI, then VGA. You can change the default source in the OSD by
pressing the front panel Menu button and selecting Source Control > Default Source.
HP Watermark and Image Retention Policy
The HP ZR2330w IPS monitor is designed with IPS (In-Plane Switching) display technology which
provides ultra-wide viewing angles and advanced image quality. IPS monitors are suitable for a wide
variety of advanced image quality applications. This panel technology, however, is not suitable for
applications that exhibit static, stationary or fixed images for long periods of time without the use of
screen savers. These types of applications may include camera surveillance, video games, marketing
logos, and templates that are displayed on the screen for a prolonged period of time. Static images
may cause image retention damage that could look like stains or watermarks on the monitor's screen.
Monitors in use for 24 hours per day that result in image retention damage are not covered under the
HP warranty. To avoid image retention damage, always turn off the monitor when it is not in use or
use the power management setting, if supported on your system, to turn off the display when the
system is idle.

Mounting the Monitor
The monitor panel can be attached to a wall, optional swing arm, or other mounting fixture. Mounting
solutions are sold separately.
NOTE:This apparatus is intended to be supported by UL or CSA Listed wall mount bracket.
1.Remove the monitor panel from the pedestal base. Refer to Removing the Monitor Pedestal
Base on page 13.
CAUTION:This monitor supports the VESA industry standard 100 mm mounting holes. To
attach a third-party mounting solution to the monitor, four 4 mm, 0.7 pitch, and 10 mm long
screws are required. Longer screws must not be used because they may damage the monitor. It
is important to verify that the manufacturer’s mounting solution is compliant with the VESA
standard and is rated to support the weight of the monitor display panel. For best performance, it
is important to use the power and video cables provided with the monitor.
