Tip & How-To about Planar PX2710MW Monitor

Planar PX2710MW frequency out-of-range

After a computer reboot, about 8 out of 10 times the monitor would display a blue "frequency out of range" message. It would take several power off/on cycles for the monitor to finally display Microsoft Windows.

I called Planar tech support. They were super-nice. After about 15 minutes in which I shared my screen with them, the tech suggested I go into thePX2710MW's main menu (i.e. "Button 1") and then click "memory recall".

Problem solved! Wow.

get rid of "Out Of Range" message on e218c1 monitor.


The device driving the monitor is exceeding the horizontal and vertical frequencies that the monitor can display .....thus the "out of range". The specs for this state that the Horizontal Freq. is 80Khz and the Vertical Rate is 75hz. If you are driving this monitor from a computer running Windows, reboot the PC and use the F8 key to put it in SAFE mode. This will cause the video driver to default to a rate that the monitor can handle. Then go into the screen resolution settings and reset them. The native resolution of the monitor is 1680x1050 at 60 Hz. Exceed that and you'll get the "out of range"

When I boot up my computer, it will pass the bios screen and "loading windows xp" screen, but gives me an error message saying "Out Of Frequency Range, Set reaolution lower" and will not let me see my username to login to windows. What do I do?


As you computer boots up, press the F8 function key several times. Then select boot up in Safe Mode - go to Control Panel - Display - Settings and change the screen resolution lower such as 1024 X 768 - Apply and Shut down computer.
Reboot the computer.

has a blue dialog box that says out of range


Hello

It sounds like you have two separate problems.

The first one is the "out of range" issue. This means you are trying to display a screen resolution that is too high or too low and your monitor cannot display any image. Reboot your computer with another monitor or into safe boot mode and change the resolution to an industry standard (800x600 / 1024x786) and then see if your monitor will display the image. Once you can see the image on your monitor, you can make adjustments and it will automatically revert back if you cannot see the new display settings.

Update your video graphics card drivers to get the best possible resolution.

As for the buttons on the front of the monitor not working, this may be caused by the "out of range" issue above. It could also indicate that your monitor may be going bad. Try the above steps - if you get no image from the monitor, try moving the monitor to another known good computer and see if the button functionality works after it displays an image.

Screen says "OUT OF RANGE H:27.8K V: 62.0


That's the monitor telling you it's getting a signal it can't handle. The H and V values are the horizontal and vertical frequencies that control the display. They change depending on your computer's video card settings. The monitor can be damaged if run at frequencies outside its safe range, and it displays the message you're seeing to protect itself.

Start your computer. When the manufacturer's splash screen (logo screen) comes on, press the F8 several times. This will get you to a startup options menu. Select "Start in VGA mode" from the list. Windows will start up then with settings every monitor can handle, and you'll be able to see again.

You might have a game or other graphics application that changes video settings to something the monitor can't handle. If this is the case, and those settings are required, you'll need to invest in a monitor with a greater settings range.
