Re: Contrast window keeps on popping in the monitor

Hi, it might be that a sensor in the monitor is sensing change in ambient light and therefore reacts by auto adjusting the contrast. when you push auto, it will do just that and auto react. Why not try manual and set it to your desired setting and let it run that way. But then again, of course it is possible that something is really wrong with the monitor and you would need a qualified service personnel to diagnose/repair it. Hope this be of some help and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

Dear User...

You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.

To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display color in Windows, see Calibrate your display.

The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.

Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.

On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.

Brightness/contrast pop up,options toggling randomly can't select

sugars_30, You or electronics technician will need to (most likely) fix the units "switch-mode-power-supply" !!! Do some extensive reading in my fixya profile and follow the links to other "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" back-lit lcd monitor tech's here on fixya. They and I already have written tons of stuff that will help you to understand the problem you have. When "strange stuff" starts happening with a ccfl lcd display, the first place to look is at the innerds of the monitor. Just do some reading!!! 12fixlouie

Contrast window pops up and dims the screen.

You are not alone. I have a Viewsonic monitor that does exactly the same thing. Wasn't sure if it was the monitor or a "bug".

Brightness/contrast window pops up and scrolls through fast

The up/down button on your flat panel is stuck. Please contact Dell Technical Support to have the monitor replaced if its still within warranty.
