Open Question

OSD Display won't go away on my screen.

I have a Compaq monitor. The OSD display is "stuck" on the screen. I have tried holding down menu, exit, rebooting, etc. but it will always come back, or one of the choices will load (such as contrast, degausse, etc.) Is there someway to disable this? I hate to buy a new monitor just for this problem.

Troubleshooting Flat Panel Monitor issues. Screen is blank and power indicator...


Troubleshooting Flat Panel Monitor issues.

Screen is blank and power indicator is off

The monitor is possibly not receiving power. Perform the following steps to fix the problem:
  1. Ensure that the electrical outlet and the monitor are both switched on.
  2. Check that the power cord is firmly plugged into the electrical outlet and the power supply unit.
  3. If the power cord has a removable fuse, replace it.
  4. Try another power cord.
  5. Try another electrical outlet.
  6. Check the power connection at the back of the panel.
Screen is blank and power indicator is steady green

Brightness and Contrast may be too low. Adjust the brightness and contrast using the On-screen display controls (OSD) by selecting the button
Screen is blank and power indicator is steady amber

The monitor is in the Power Management Standby state. The power management feature is invoked when the computer recognizes that you have not used your mouse or keyboard for a user-definable period. Perform the following steps to bring monitor out of the power management state:
  1. Press any key on the keyboard or move the mouse to restore operation.
  2. Check the Power Management software on your computer.
  3. flatpnlmont12.jpgPress the (OK) key to switch between analog and digital mode. If the panel is the wrong mode for the signal being provided, the monitor appears to go into sleep mode.
Screen is blank and power indicator is flashing green
Display mode of the computer is outside the range of the monitor. The display mode the monitor uses is controlled by your computer. Therefore, you should refer to your computer's documentation for details on how to change display modes.

The image size, position and shape may change when the display mode changes. This is normal and the image can be readjusted using the IMAGE SETUP and the monitor controls.

Note: Unlike CRT monitors, which requires a high refresh rate to minimize flicker, TFT technology is inherently flicker-free. If possible, configure your computer for 1600 x 1200 addressability at 60Hz vertical refresh rate.

Use the following table as a guideline and reconfigure your computer to use a supported display mode. The highest resolution (for example, 1600 x 1200) produces the optimal output, but limitations of your monitor may prohibit this setting. Adjust the addressability mode until an image appears.

CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" message is shown and power indicator is steady amber.

The monitor is not receiving a video signal. Perform the following steps to fix the problem:
  1. Check that the signal cable is firmly connected to your computer
  2. Check that no pins are bent in the signal cable connector.
There are noises in the video signal. The IMAGE SETUP function is used to adjust the level of noise in the video signal which causes horizontal lines or areas where the image appears to be unstable and jitters or shimmers. This can be done automatically or manually.
Note: It is not applicable to digital input.
Use the image setup fix the problem:
  1. flatpnlmont6.jpgSelect (Image Setup) menu in the OSD.

  2. Select Manual to adjust CLOCK/PHASE settings.
Image appears to be discolored

The color setting may be incorrect. Perform the following steps to adjust the color settings:
  1. flatpnlmont8.jpgSelect (Image Properties) from the OSD menu.
  2. flatpnlmont9.jpgSelect (Color Properties) to adjust the color mode you find most comfortable or fine tune the colors using the Custom menu.
A few dots are missing, discolored, or inappropriately lighted

A small number missing, discolored, or lighted dots may be present on the screen, which is an intrinsic characteristic of the TFT LCD technology and is not an LCD defect.
Using On-Screen display (OSD) controls
flatpnlmont12.jpgThe settings adjustable with the user controls are viewed through the OSD. Press the (OK) button to display the main OSD menu.
OSD main menu:

Note: The LCD monitor needs time to become thermally stable the first time you turn it on each day. Thus, to achieve more accurate adjustments for parameters, allow the LCD monitor to warm up (be on) for 15 minutes before making any screen adjustments

Tip

Diagnosing video problems on TVs and monitors


The first thing to always check is the MENU (osd - on screen display)

Push menu or display on your tv or monitor

- if the menu is clear, the problem is in the early stages of video or outside your device (could be the source (dvd, cablebox) or input connections

- if the menu is distorted, the problem is definitely a malfunction with your device the osd is generated from (tv menu distorted = 100% tv is problem)

* you can also use other OSD signals to troubleshoot - if the volume bar or display info (input label, info bar) is clear, problems are earlier in the circuitry or outside the device. don't be fooled by translucent menus or cablebox menus.

** osd is inserted in the picture in the later stages of video processing. if your osd is distored, suspect the circuitry after the video switch. this could be a bad LVDS cable, TCON or Logic board, or even a bad lcd panel, plasma panel, crt.

My Magnavox 17in LCD TV (17MF200V/17) shows message ''Attention OSD Main Menu locked. cannot use any functions on tv. i.e., volume , menu, etc


It means that some kind of parental control feature has locked you out of the On Screen Display menu. You will have to consult your manual (possibly online) to figure out how to reset the password.
Although it is possible some other kind of malfunction could cause you to lose menu control, this is the most likely cause.
