Question about Acer AL1914 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Menu keeps poping up & won't turn off

The Contrast/Brightness menu pops up in the center of the screen (as if you push the menu button on the monitor). The intervals are completely random and the time it stays up is also random. Sometimes it adjusts the cotrast, but usually it just goes off. Also, I can't turn off the monitor with the power button.

I should note that I have dual screens, both ACER 1914 black/silver.

This has happened before (about 4 months ago) and lasted a couple days, then stopped as suddenly as it started. Weird.

Is there a way to reset the monitor?

    I have similar problem but with the VOLUME box. I can clear it by unplugging - NO BUTTONS work when box is open. When plugged back in, can use buttons for a few seconds & then volume box opens again.

    My area has been having power failures every few months & likely a surge fried the control board. Bought 4 yrs ago w/ 3 yr warranty so might see if any ebayer wants it for the panel.

Change brightness


The second button from the left on the bottom corner by the power button is the brightness button. If you press it the brightness menu is pop up on the screen. With the menu up you just use the three buttons on the left to select the function and the increase or decrease the brightness and contrast on the monitor.

HOW TO SET BRIGHTNESS OF THE SCREEN?


Hi,

Dear User...

You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.

To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display color in Windows, see Calibrate your display.

The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.

Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.


On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.



Thanks....

Hi,

It seems to be a hardware issue with the buttons. They are stuck or the rubber cushion under the button has gone bad. That's the reason they are getting pressed automatically. You may take to a local store for a small repair.

Try pushing the buttons for the brightness if it does the same thing you need to replace it, the buttons might be damaged already by pushing too hard or it got stuck.
If this is just a new LCD monitor about 1 to 2 years old contact tech support of dell so you can get this replaced.

Brightness/contrast window pops up and scrolls through fast


The up/down button on your flat panel is stuck. Please contact Dell Technical Support to have the monitor replaced if its still within warranty.
