DDC Data Re-programming
A. 15-pin D-Sub Connector
In case the main EEPROM with Software DDC which store all factory
settings were replaced because a defect,repaired monitor the serial
numbers have to be re-programmed.

It is advised to re-soldered the main EEPROM with Software DDC from
the old board onto the new board if circuit board have been replaced, in
this case the DDC data does not need to be re-programmed. The 15-pin D-sub connector (male) of the signal cable
on the 3rd row for DDC feature :
Additional information

Additional information about DDC (Display Data Channel) may be
obtained from Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA).
Extended Display Identification Data(EDID) information may be also
obtained from VESA.

4. Configuration and procedure 3. At the submenu, type the letter of your computer's floppy disk drive
followed by :EDID301 (for example, A:\EDID301, as shown in Fig. 5).
There is no Hardware DDC (DDC IC) anymore. Main EEPROM stores
all factory settings and DDC data (EDID code) which is so called
Software DDC. The following section describes the connection and
procedure for Software DDC application. The main EEPROM can be re- Fig. 5

Note 2: During the loading, EDID301 will verify the EDID data which just
Fig. 4 loaded from monitor before proceed any further function, once
the data structure of EDID can not be recognized, the following
error message will appear on the screen as below. Please
confirm following steps to avoid this message.
1. The data structure of EDID was incorrect.
2. DDC IC that you are trying to load data is empty.
3. Wrong communication channel has set at configuration setup
4. Cables loosed or poor contact of connection.

Before Read/Write EDID code, please confirm that the
Software DDC only is enabled as shown in Fig. 23.
Step 8: Save DDC data
Sometimes, you may need to save DDC data as a text file for using
in other IC chip. To save DDC data, follow the steps below:

1. Click (Save) icon (or click "file"-> "save as") from the tool bar Fig. 23
and give a file name as shown in Fig. 19.
The file type is EDID301 file (*.ddc) which can be open in WordPad.
By using WordPad, the texts of DDC data & table (128 bytes, hex
code) can be modified. If DDC TEXTS & HEX Table are completely
correct, it can be saved as .ddc flie to re-load it into EEPROM for
DDC Data application.
