This volume icon appears on the screen and would not go away even after pressing the auto or menu buttons on the monitor.
When the menu option finally shows up, it seems to have a life on its own and will just run through the various icons. It would stop when the auto button is pressed but the volume icon shows up again after that.
Is there something wrong with the monitor and it's time to get a new one? OR is there something wrong with some other parts of the computer?

Another person said.
".We have this one. It must be in the sound activation mode, which helps to save the monitor's battery life. If it's in that mode, you'll see what looks like a crying baby icon along the top of the screen and the screen only turns on when sound is detected in the room.
To turn the mode off and keep the monitor on all the time, just press the Menu button on the right (in the middle of the arrows), press the right arrow until you reach the crying baby icon on the far right (so the icon gets big), press the Menu button, and a check mark and an X will appear - the X will be pre-selected and appear red. Just press the Menu button again to select the X and turn that mode off. Once back to the Menu screen, arrow up to the Return button on top right and press the Menu button to exit."

My TV had the same problem and I have managede to get rid of it. The solution is very simple. This displays mean that your TV is in the " Store Demo" mode and any changes you make will last only for 30 minutes and when the TV is turned off the settings will change back to the normal. Whether you TV is in the "Store Demo" mode can be confirmed by pressing the "Info" button on the remote and you will see that "store demo" appears on the screen. To change this mode to the "home mode" you will have to press the "Volume button" on the TV and when the volume sign appears on the screen then you will have to press the "Menu" button on the TV (not on the remote)and hold it down for about 7to 10 seconds. This changes your TV mode from "store demo" mode to the home mode. Confrim whether the store demo mode has been put off by pressing the "Info" button on the remote to see whether the store demo sign appears on the screen. The store demo is set by sales persons in the shops so that any demonstratation/changes that they make while showing to customers will be temporary as the settings revert back to the original.
Try to reset it
Scroll through the menu options by using the up and down arrow buttons located just under the "Menu" button. Scroll down to the "Setup" icon, which looks like a big cog. Press the "Auto/Set" button to access the Setup menu.Scroll, using the down arrow, to "Factory Reset." This setting is located at the bottom of the Setup menu.Press the "Menu" button on the right side of the monitor. This will bring up the On Screen Display. If nothing happens when the "Menu" button is pressed, press and hold it for several seconds to unlock the On Screen Display.Press the "Auto/Set" button to choose "Factory Reset" and then press the down arrow to reset the monitor.
I have the 2436V (no speakers), but I suspect the solution will be similar. My screen was a bit to the left of the monitor's physical display area, and I was able to solve it using the built in menu (If you take too long deciding what menu button to press next, the menu will time out. Just start over if that happens. You will get faster with practice).
1) Press the menu button on the monitor (the menu appears). 2) Press the up button on the monitor 4 times to highlight the icon that looks like a slightly angled screen with yellow cross-hairs in one corner (the toolbar for positioning the screen appears - all 5 icons on the positioning toolbar are blue). 3) Press the menu button on the monitor to "enter" the selected toolbar (one of the toolbar icons turns green to indicate the selected tool on the toolbar). 4) Select the tool you need using the up/down arrow buttons on the monitor (I needed the one that moves the screen horizontally, you need the one that moves the screen vertically). 5) Press the menu button on the monitor to activate the selected tool (the meter above the toolbar icon turns green to indicate the tool is active). 6) Use the up/down buttons on the monitor to position the screen. 7) Press the menu button to exit back out (or, just let the menu time out).
Note: the disk that came with the monitor doesn't seem to have drivers for Windows 7, but allowing Windows to search online while updating the driver found a compatible driver online.
When this occurs with mine, I power down the PC through windows and the monitor using the lower right power button, let bot sit for 10 - 20 seconds, then power on the PC and switch on the monitor a second or two later and the icon disappears.
Before I did this I found it would eventually disappear.
Acer support claim the H243H is a touchscreen unit, that's what the icon is all about, buy you must have Vista to use it, not XP.
Hey Mate, being honest weve sold alot of TFT monitors and most are hard to hear with all the volumes turned up, only thing you can try are.
turn volume up to max on the monitors menu,
also double click on the little speaker icon on the bottom right hand corner of the screen and a volume menu appears turn up WAV, & the main one on the left.
if you are not getting any sound at all check you have the audio cable from the monitor plugged into the green connection on the back of the pc.
Afraid thats the only options to get it louder or buy a set of speakers to get the sound louder.
All the best
