Screens says aging and brightness is automaticly turned to 0
I have a phillips 190wv monitor and it says aging when there is no periphial connected or if the pc/labtop is on standby.
also when the screen is turned n the brightness display from the osd menu is displayed and also if i try and press the menu button on the screen it pops up and stays there and i cant turn bright up or make it go away unless i remove the power and turn it on again and the the brightness thing show up again ,,
so i basicly want to know if i can reset the firmware on the scren or update it or if anyone knows any solution

Not sure if this is exactly the same as yours your model hard to find I had 2 similar monitors at previous employer and they both operated the same way
Taking a Look
1. Power Switch
Pressing this button turns the display system power on or off.
2. Menu/Select ? Pressing this button pops up the OSD menus on the screen, and used to
select ("Up" direction) the OSD control options on the screen.
? This button is used to select ("Down" direction) the OSD control options on
4. + This button is used to increase the value of the selected OSD control option.
5. 0 This button is used to decrease the value of the selected OSD control option.
Quick Adjustment Function
When the OSD Menu is not active, the following functions are available for the quick
Pressing ? button once pops up the OSD Function Main Menu .
Pressing ? button once pops up the small Brightness icon. Use +or 0button to adjust
the Brightness level.
Pressing + button once pops up the small Volume icon. Use +or 0 button to adjust the Volume level.
In most cases this could happen because of electronic components getting aged. I suspect the monitor's LOT or some capacitors about to die. Get them replaced with the help of a expert technician. That should fix this problem.
most monitors get darker with age -- for a while you can counter this
by turning up the Brightness and Contrast controls, but this only gives
you a little extra time (and probably speeds up the decay process
Assuming no hardware/component fault, the dimness of a monitor signifies near end of life of the CRT (tube).
There are a few tricks/tweaks that can be done but of course these are just prolonging the inevitable. Should you want to give any of them a try, they are: 1. Adjust the Screen controller at the rear of the Flyback Transformer (FBT) to maximum effective brightness. It may also be needed to adjust the Focus control; 2. In some versions, there are sub-bright and/or Automatic Brightness Limiter (ABL) trimpots soldered direct to the PCB that can be adjusted; 3. the heater voltage can be slightly increased either by using a stepdown transformer that has multiple taps about1~2 amps. In some instances, the heater has an external loop around the core of the FBT, adding a turn or so would also serve the same; 4. adding a 100uF/160V capacitor after the diode of the FBT's output that supplies the 3 color drive transistors. 5. use the HV/anode cap of a small monochrome monitor to inject high voltage to the screen grids of the picture tube of the 22" CRT. the heater of the 22" CRT must be temporarily shorted.
All of the above require familiarity and knowledge of electronic components and circuitry, use of a soldering iron and working around high voltages.
If you are not comfortable going through this route, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.
If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, you may need to replace the monitor.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
I fixed it myself, it seems that the monitor have some problems remembering it's settings and sometimes it automatically set its settings to crazy values that are out of the range that we are allowed to input. For my case, the setting that was crazy was the gamma setting since it was set so high. I wasn't able to bring it back to a normal setting so I found a way to do it by resetting the monitor. So to reset these display settings such as colour, contrast, brightness and gama, you need to turn on the monitor and unplug the monitor without turning it off and plug it back in again. It will automatically power on and the correct default settings will be present.
