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.

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.

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.

Brightness and contrast screen in center of monitor and can't remove it


the micro switches on the monitor are getting short which is triggering the menu, try to clean it with a switch cleaner or check if the switches can be replaced, do this only if u r an expert in handling things like this or take some proffessional assistance.

The Contrast screen pops on all the time


It looks like your UP button contact is demaged.
SOLUTION is to insert a piece from your business card mostly above the button to adjust it down or up. It works fine.
