    A volume screen pops up in the middle of my desktop, The mouse cursor has no effect on it. It also counts up and down, then goes away and comes back, very agitating.

    My HP w2207 monitor, automatically randomly pop up the volume control, it will automatically decrease the volume to 0, some time automatically increase the volume without control.

    it stays on the middle of the screen. The mouse disappear when I move the mouse over the volume control.

    The menu button at the bottom of the screen, when click, does not show menu, as it suppose to do. Instead, it show volume control. This volume control is related to HDMI audio input

    Same problem--Audio pop-up with volume bar outlined in blue will not go away, even if I restart. All work, including the mouse arrow, disappears behind the pop-up. Help!

    Can anyone help with this since i cannot see any posting stating what to do.

    All help is appreciated

    Also has any one used uniblue products. Especially registry booster? Why is the uniblue product not fixing the registry since it is recommended by almost everyone?

Sounds like one of the front panel buttons is stuck in - possibly the volume down button. If no buttons work, this could be the reason why. Just a guess. If they all feel OK, it may still be worth pulling the back off, (Without electricuting yourself -DISCONNECT POWER!) remove the PCB board that has the buttons on it, and see if it turns on without the menu. If so, check all buttons, rare but I have seen one that looked fine but with a multimeter it showed it wasnt working. If the screen still displays the menu, Id say there is a bigger problem... HTH

I fixed mine with a piece of popsicle stick and duct tape. Take a piece of popsicle stick and break it so you have about an inch long piece. Place it on the far left button. Use duct tape to hold it in place. As long as the button stays pressed, the pop up doesn't come back.

Cannot remove the brightness window that pops up on my Philips 190V monitor.

2 solutions (both worked in my case in different screens)

1 - Place a big clip (see photo) locking the [Auto] button before turning on the monitor. If you do so and the button stays pushed the menu will not appear.


2 - Unplug the monitor and pull out the [Up Arrow] button or the one that pops up the menu. A sharped knife and pliers will do. It sounds crazy but it worked in my case.

I'd recommend to try solution #1 first.

No warranties but it worked in my case.

HP w2207 LCD monitor, the volume control window stays on

The volume button is stuck or defective. You can try massaging it around or spraying some contact cleaner in there but it's probably not worth the trouble since it's still under warranty and HP will replace it for you. Call 1-800-HP-INVENT and let them know what is going on and they'll take care of it for you.

They'll ship a replacement to you along with a return label to send yours back to them prepaid. You'll probably have it by the end of the week.

The OSD lockout won't help you in the meantime, the volume display won't come up but you'll get an OSD lockout nag instead.

Good luck, if you have any trouble filing a claim, let me know. We're an HP warranty center and can handle it for you as long as you get permission from Fixya first.(assuming you're in the US)

btw, this unit has a 3 year warranty and has been out only about 2.5 years so it's 100% that's it is still covered. Shouldn't be any issues regarding proof of purchase, etc.

The Volume Screen on my monitor keeps popping up

Try putting pressure on the monitor near the buttons. There might be a short or some type of stress pressing the buttons.

Audio adjust screen pop up

I contacted ViewSonic with the same problem. They told me to turn off the monitor and unplug all the cables. Then hold the power button on the monitor for 10 seconds. Turn it back on and it should be gone.

If that doesn't work, I was told to do a memory recall on the monitor by pressing the 1 button and selecting memory recall from the list. It sets the monitor back to factory settings.

I haven't tried any of these yet but hopefully they work for someone.

I have the same problem, mostly when the monitor is cold. I found a work-around tho. You bring up the menu, scroll through the options and select "memory". hit that it it does a memory reset, take about 3 seconds. After that, my monitor works perfectly. One time the power button stopped working and I had to unplug to turn the monitor off but it didn't do this for the last two days. Best of luck.

I know about that volume pop up that refuses to go away. I figured out that it goes away if I press the "Menu" button. If that doesn't work, I have no idea what will.
