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!

Troubleshooting Flat Panel Monitor issues. Screen is blank and power indicator...


Troubleshooting Flat Panel Monitor issues.

Screen is blank and power indicator is off

The monitor is possibly not receiving power. Perform the following steps to fix the problem:
  1. Ensure that the electrical outlet and the monitor are both switched on.
  2. Check that the power cord is firmly plugged into the electrical outlet and the power supply unit.
  3. If the power cord has a removable fuse, replace it.
  4. Try another power cord.
  5. Try another electrical outlet.
  6. Check the power connection at the back of the panel.
Screen is blank and power indicator is steady green

Brightness and Contrast may be too low. Adjust the brightness and contrast using the On-screen display controls (OSD) by selecting the button
Screen is blank and power indicator is steady amber

The monitor is in the Power Management Standby state. The power management feature is invoked when the computer recognizes that you have not used your mouse or keyboard for a user-definable period. Perform the following steps to bring monitor out of the power management state:
  1. Press any key on the keyboard or move the mouse to restore operation.
  2. Check the Power Management software on your computer.
  3. flatpnlmont12.jpgPress the (OK) key to switch between analog and digital mode. If the panel is the wrong mode for the signal being provided, the monitor appears to go into sleep mode.
Screen is blank and power indicator is flashing green
Display mode of the computer is outside the range of the monitor. The display mode the monitor uses is controlled by your computer. Therefore, you should refer to your computer's documentation for details on how to change display modes.

The image size, position and shape may change when the display mode changes. This is normal and the image can be readjusted using the IMAGE SETUP and the monitor controls.

Note: Unlike CRT monitors, which requires a high refresh rate to minimize flicker, TFT technology is inherently flicker-free. If possible, configure your computer for 1600 x 1200 addressability at 60Hz vertical refresh rate.

Use the following table as a guideline and reconfigure your computer to use a supported display mode. The highest resolution (for example, 1600 x 1200) produces the optimal output, but limitations of your monitor may prohibit this setting. Adjust the addressability mode until an image appears.

CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" message is shown and power indicator is steady amber.

The monitor is not receiving a video signal. Perform the following steps to fix the problem:
  1. Check that the signal cable is firmly connected to your computer
  2. Check that no pins are bent in the signal cable connector.
There are noises in the video signal. The IMAGE SETUP function is used to adjust the level of noise in the video signal which causes horizontal lines or areas where the image appears to be unstable and jitters or shimmers. This can be done automatically or manually.
Note: It is not applicable to digital input.
Use the image setup fix the problem:
  1. flatpnlmont6.jpgSelect (Image Setup) menu in the OSD.

  2. Select Manual to adjust CLOCK/PHASE settings.
Image appears to be discolored

The color setting may be incorrect. Perform the following steps to adjust the color settings:
  1. flatpnlmont8.jpgSelect (Image Properties) from the OSD menu.
  2. flatpnlmont9.jpgSelect (Color Properties) to adjust the color mode you find most comfortable or fine tune the colors using the Custom menu.
A few dots are missing, discolored, or inappropriately lighted

A small number missing, discolored, or lighted dots may be present on the screen, which is an intrinsic characteristic of the TFT LCD technology and is not an LCD defect.
Using On-Screen display (OSD) controls
flatpnlmont12.jpgThe settings adjustable with the user controls are viewed through the OSD. Press the (OK) button to display the main OSD menu.

Note: The LCD monitor needs time to become thermally stable the first time you turn it on each day. Thus, to achieve more accurate adjustments for parameters, allow the LCD monitor to warm up (be on) for 15 minutes before making any screen adjustments

"OSD LOCKED" box on my screen


The OSD can be enabled or disabled by pressing and holding the Menu button on the front panel for 10 seconds. If the OSD is locked, the warning message OSD Lock displays for ten seconds.

* If the OSD is locked, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds to unlock the OSD.
* If the OSD is unlocked, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds to lock the OSD.



OSD stands for "On Screen Display." It is an onscreen configuration menu included with various monitors. When you press the MENU button or one of the other buttons on the front or side of a monitor, the onscreen display may appear. The OSD typically includes monitor calibration options, such as brightness, contrast, and color adjustments. Some OSDs may also include horizontal and vertical position controls as well as tilt and keystone adjustments.
If you can't make adjustments to the monitor settings using the OSD interface, the onscreen display may be locked. You may also see the phrase "OSD Locked" appear when you try to change the settings. Some monitors include an option within the menu called "OSD Lock", which you can turn on or off. If this option is available, simply turn OSD Lock off and you will be able to make adjustments to the settings.
If your monitor does not include the "OSD Lock" option, you may be able to unlock the OSD by pressing and holding the MENU button on the front or side of the monitor for several seconds. If you try this method, be patient! It may take up to 15 seconds for the OSD to unlock.
