Menu screen keeps appearing

I've has this monitor for about three years and never had any issues. But in the past few days, the "menu screen" keeps popping up. I hit the exit button but it continues to pop back up. Its more a nuisance than anything and I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions. Thanks

Re: Menu screen keeps appearing

Why is it Dangerous to open the monitor? I almost did it this morning! because I guessed it WAS a mechanical problem.

Re: Menu screen keeps appearing

Hello, My name is Richard; I work for Dell here in Round Rock, Texas. From what you describe, it sounds like the menu button is depressed in such a way that small movement activates its function. I could not suggest any real corrective options as this is most likely a mechanical issue with the button, and would require a technician to open the monitor and inspect that. I am not going to recommend you open the monitor case as it can be dangerous. I would suggest you call our tech support at 1-800-822-8965 ex. 726-8859, and find out if the monitor is still under warranty. Regards, Richard B Dell Online Community Outreach

My 'the first years' baby monitor will only work when plugged into the wall. When I take the connection from the wall away the monitor switches off. Help please :)

Either the battery is dead or you need to change the sound setting that keeps unit off when it does not detect sound to protect the battery.
Another person said.
".We have this one. It must be in the sound activation mode, which helps to save the monitor's battery life. If it's in that mode, you'll see what looks like a crying baby icon along the top of the screen and the screen only turns on when sound is detected in the room.

To turn the mode off and keep the monitor on all the time, just press the Menu button on the right (in the middle of the arrows), press the right arrow until you reach the crying baby icon on the far right (so the icon gets big), press the Menu button, and a check mark and an X will appear - the X will be pre-selected and appear red. Just press the Menu button again to select the X and turn that mode off. Once back to the Menu screen, arrow up to the Return button on top right and press the Menu button to exit."

pulling out the power cord.
3- Plug the power cord back while keeping the MENU button

You should see the picture again.

Lock/unlock symbol appears in the middle of the screen

5-22-09 Same problem last month. I had the problem a year ago for a month, then it stopped, reappearing this last month. Last week, I finally called support...I was accidentally transferred to a Dell "internal" technical support department...happily a very diligent technician spent a bit of time with me for free...for same problem, even though he confirmed I was over a year past all warranties. He confirmed this was a monitor problem (not virus, malware, etc.). He also confirmed their standard "guidance"/solution for this monitor issue (if under warrantee) is to replace the monitor (i.e. not attempt to fix it). New monitor needed. But problem again gone for last 10 days. So, when fully irritated, buy new monitor.
