LG HDTV Monitor Permenantly switched on but no display white screen with V.2.0.0 moving around the screen

sounds like you are possibly over resolution (setting resolution higher than the monitor can show. Try setting to low resolution and see if it shows up. Try VGA first and move up if it shows.

I accidently hit recall on my monitor settings. I now have a smaller veiwing screen with black edges

You didn't say which OS you're using but it sounds like you've changed the aspect ratio of your video signal. Different screen resolutions have somewhat different aspect ratios. The aspect ratio indicates the ratio of the number of pixels of width to those of height. For example: my video driver offers a resolution of 1280 x 960 or 1280 x 720 which would give screen aspect ratios of 1280/960 = 1.33 :1 and 1280/720 = 1.77 : 1. The latter would produce a narrower image. You can compensate somewhat by increasing your horizontal sweep voltage with your monitor menu. A better solution would be to select a resolution that more closely matches your monitor's screen size.

LG Flatron L1919S stuck in 1024x768 resolution, when it was set in 1280x1024. NOTE : the screen is in use with a Unix workstation, not a Windows PC. When I switched the monitor off, I accidently pressed...

That auto configure button is for the monitor to adjust it self to correctly display the correct resolution as FED BY THE VIDEO card, the resolution on the monitor is CONTROLLED BY THE computer, not by the monitor.
If the resolution setting on the computer is not showing the 1280 x1024, then either the driver for the video card is corrupted or need to be reloaded.
Native resolution of this monitor is 1280 x1024 @60Hz.

The screen doesn't show the whole image, it is to wide, to tall, so there is no upper and lower toolbar, same on sides. I tried with the screen control on lower front of the monitor, but it is not enough.

your screen resolution must be changed to a lower MHz...
go to Control Panel/Dislay/Display properties/Settings/Screen Resolution/
here try a lower/higher resolution
then else try Advanced option there and set a lower setting there under the General Tab and Monitor Tabs.....
some hit and trial may solve th sure NOT to chose the wrong setting as that may cause hard to your monitor

Screen monitor images on the righ side is not showig.

Hi afcarrillo,

This could be a simple resolution problem. By that I mean that the resolution is set too low, therefore putting things off screen. Here's how you change the resolution:

Windows XP

Right click the Desktop and select Properties. Click the tab all the way on the right that says settings, and drag the slider to your native resolution of 1600x900

Windows Vista

Click Start, Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization, Personalization, Display Settings and drag the slider to 1600x900

Windows 7

Simply right click the desktop, select Screen resolution and pick 1600x900

If you do not have a resolution problem, then it's most likely the monitor itself. Most often times you can fix it one of two ways:

1. Some monitors have a button that says "Auto" which will auto adjust your monitor. If you have one, try it.

2. If that didn't work or you don't have one, go through the monitor's OSD (on screen display) and work through the settings so that you can manually adjust it and set it to your taste.

Hope this helps :)

When your computer is starting up, hit F8 and you'll see the safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. screen...You should see a choice that says "enable vga mode". Select that and windows will start and the os will select a screen resolution for you. After that, everything will work fine...I hope.

Good Luck!
