    sometimes the Brightness / Contrast controls will pop up in the middle of my screen & the only way I can get rid of it is to turn the monitor off & on again. I swear that sometimes it seems prompted by computer activity.

    Same problem---Brightness menu pops up without prompting in the middle of the screen; it is so annoying. Can't these geeks get this stuff right.

I had the same issue. I pressed and hold the + button and the monitor did an auto adjust and the pop up stopped.

Background too white


I looked this up in my Dell 1908FBPL instructions which should be similar. On the lower right edge, you should have Brightness & Contrast and Auto Adjust controls. These controls interact so you may have to fiddle back and forth to get it right. First, note whether brightness becreases when you press and hold the down (-) button. Check to see whether Auto Adjust changes anything. Also try turning the monitor off then back on.

Screen too bright, have just got monitor from e-bay and there are no instructions on use.


Check all the buttons near the ON/OFF button.

One of the buttons will activate the OSD (On Screen Display).

The OSD controls everything about the monitor, including BRIGHTNESS and CONTRAST. Use the other buttons to move between menu-items, and to "select" one of the sub-menus, and to raise/lower settings, and to "exit" from a sub-menu to the main-menu.
