It is not a programming conflict. It is the button assembly malfunctioning. I have the same problem. I have spent alot of time diagnosing it. The button assembly needs to be replaced but I have looked everywhere for a replacement part but none cane be found because none are sold. It sucks. If you take the case off you can see and remove the button assembly fairly easily. I think if your are good at soldering, the best thing (and only thing you can do) is to purchase individual replacement buttons, remove the old buttons and solder new ones onto the board. I **** greatly at soldering so i will never do it. I hope this helps.

LCD Main MEnu


hi,

It is possible that menu button on the monitor is stuck. I suggest to call your computer manufacturer where you purchased the monitor, check for the warranty and request for a replacement.

Keep me posted.

Thanks

E173FP 17" LCD Monitor Problem


I have the same problem. It seems like a virus to me, but my anti-virus doesn't find anything. I went to the main menu on the moniter and changed the display time to five seconds and locked the OSD display. Now all the appears is a smaller box showing a lock which goes out in five seconds. It is still annoying, but less intrusive then before. Hopefully, some one will determine a permanent fix for this problem.

Picture doesnt fit whole screen


There should be a right and left alighnment on the OSD menu or an auto button to centre the desktop. Also check your screen resolution as 1280x1024 or 1024x768 should be fine.

Please try to check your menu micro switch, the connection and lastly is the mainboard problem. If you have enough tech experience and tools to repair this type of mainboard, then i will show you what's the problem. If you try the above method also can solve this problem, then the mainboard is defected. You can check the crystal, eeprom ic (or the data may be need to reprogram), MCU Chip(Micro Controller Unit). The above component may be defected, dry joint and the program inside eeprom or mcu need to reprogram. If you need more info you can try to this website: http://www.fastrepairguide.com

Dell E173FP - After sometime the screen switches off


Sorry not a solution - but I have started experiencing the exact same problem over the last month although sometimes, on switching on again, it will run for 10-15 minutes before the problem re-emerges. Initially I put it down to the v. hot weather in July but it still continues. So I would also appreciate any solutions!
