The Brightness/Contrast control will pop up automatically on the screen and can not be shut off. I have turn the machine off, unplugged, etc. but no change.

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.

Dell 1900f monitor contrast/brightness problem

CLick start/run then type in dxdiag. Go to the display tab and click test dirext3d. There should be an 3d cube that comes up and spins around. After the cube leave cancel everything else and close dxdiag, Your problem should be solved for a pretty long time. If it happens again just follow the steps again.

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.
