To operate the tester, use the optional RGB+Ground clips / cable to connect the tester to your monitor’s input posts. Use the secondary sync plug to select the desired sync signal and connect that probe to the monitor as well. Turn the tester and monitor on.
Press the MODE button to cycle through the available video modes, and TEST to cycle through the tests.
Important: Even though the tester is battery powered and isolated from ground, the monitor should always be powered via an isolation transformer. Failure to do so may result in shock or damage to the monitor and tester.
