Question about ViewSonic 17" CRT Monitor

2 Answers

OSD automatically displays and I can't rid of it. Monitor display adjustments are being made and I can't control it. Sometimes it's like this. Sometimes it's OK. I am having this problem for months already. I have researched it and have seen that others are having the same problem, too. Please help.

I am facing the same problem and in my case this is because of humidity affecting the board with the power button. Try to use the hairdryer on this board for a little bit (Take it easy, though... You do not want to burn it...) and see if this helps!

Display screen not centered


Press the OSD ("On Screen Display") button on the bottom-front of the monitor.

Choose the "horizontal position".
Adjust that control to move the image to the centre.

Just wait, and the OSD will vanish.

I did not see anything regarding to the Power locked out function, may be it's time to call HP. Please post back what you find out from HP.

Locking OSD settings
When the OSD is locked, settings cannot be changed in the OSD menu. The OSD functionality is enabled or disabled by pressing the Menu button and holding it for 10 seconds. Upon disabling the OSD, an OSD Lock-out message is displayed for 10 seconds. When the OSD is locked and an OSD menu button is pressed, the OSD Lock-out message is displayed for an additional 10 seconds. When the OSD is locked, pressing the OSD menu button for 10 seconds unlocks the OSD and displays the main menu. Identifying monitor conditions
Special messages display on the monitor screen for the following monitor conditions:
  • Input Signal Out of Range : Indicates the monitor does not support the input signal because the resolution and/or refresh rate are set higher than the monitor supports. Recommended refresh rates are as follows:
    • For the w1858 monitor: 1366 x 768 @ 60 Hz.
    • For the w2338h monitor: 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz.
  • Monitor Going to Sleep : Indicates the screen display is entering a sleep mode.
  • Check Video Cable : Indicates a video input cable is not properly connected to the computer or monitor.
  • OSD Lock-out : When the OSD is locked, the warning message OSD Lock displays for 10 seconds.
  • No Input Signal : Indicates the monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer on the monitor video input connector. Check whether the computer or input signal source is off or in the power-save mode.
  • Auto Adjustment in Progress : Indicates the auto-adjustment function is active and in process.

This is from the user manual for the monitor. You can download a copy from hp here:
