Turn off On Screen Display?

Is it possible to turn off the On Screen Display on this model ( Coby TV-TF1022) so that we simply get a black screen with no signal present rather than the standard blue screen with warning dialogue box?
Thanks, Tom Zafian - tzafian@aol.com

    I didn't understand his answer, specifically the part about the 'power safe mode'. Please clarify.
    Thanks, Tom

Some Monitors DO NOT HAVE OPTIONS to turn off the warning message.

It's a built-in function that when it is ON and no video signal is coming in. (basically it's an indicator to tell you that it is functioning)

    One more thing, your Power-Saving mode is set to TURN-OFF the monitor - Windows really can't turn-off the monitor, it just cuts-off the signal going to the video cable.

Go to control panel

Find display properties
click on display properties
on display properties click the upper tab that says 'screen saver'
Click button 'power', after 'screen saver tab'
There you find options for screen stand by.

You should have an option within the menu to do this. If you do not see the function available from within the menu, then you may not be able to turn off the OSD on your monitor.

    You can set the OSD transparency through the "Option Setup" in the menu. Set this to 0 and that should get rid of the OSD...

    I mean, in the screen, press the menu button to open up the on screen display / menu, go over the settings that are build into the monitor, there should be a option to turn that off in there.

Windows 7 - adjust monitor screen??? using a 15" monitor and now have black space around picture.


Control Panel/Appearance and Personalization/Display/Adjust resolution. Try higher resolutions on the list.
If that doesn't do it I would go to Device Manager, and update driver for display adapter. May need to go to the manufacturers website
and Support Tab for drivers.

Black screen


Don't let the computer turn the monitor off. Go into control panel and click on power option. don't let the computer turn anything off and disable hibernation if on. go to screen saver and have it come on in about 30 mins.

No display


Turn the monitor on, turn the PC on and anything else you have attached that sends a video signal to the monitor.
Now take a bright light and shine it into the screen from an angle downwards from the top.
If you can see any images on the screen then your inverter has failed.
This can be repaired by a TV shop for a reasonable fee, but call around first, and also make sure they do actually service LCD monitors.

Hope this helps you both.

Monitor going black


My HP f1703 is almost 3 years old and started having this same problem. My fix got the display to stay on. Don't know how long this fix will work. I set the monitor brightness to 51 and contrast to 41. You may have to adjust to your levels to your appropriate enviroment. Levels may determine how long the monitor stay operational. Do NOT set your monitor brightness to factory levels it will just start to recreate the problem again. Solution: The monitor should be on with the blue button lighted. If the screen is acting up (you turn it on and the display lights up and then it turns off within 2 to 5 seconds) Try decreasing the brightness level down as much as possible. Wait 15 to 30 seconds and see if the display comes back to life. If not, turn the monitor off and on again and try the procedure again, if necessary. Cause: I believe the monitor brightness level, set at 100 by the factory setting, is over driving the display and causing the protection circuit to cut off the flouresent lamps that light the display. HP had an issue with this display, and had a notice to replace them if the problem occurred during the warranty period. They extended the warranty period from Jun 04 to Feb 06. Check with HP Technical Support to determine if your monitor is cover.
