Question about Samsung SyncMaster 551 15" CRT Monitor
Hi, I'm having XP Home SP2 on IBM THINK CENTRE,MONITOR E 54, but did never experience such a peculiar problem. It happens like, in my monitor, for the last few months I'm seeing that, the on screen display (i.e. the display we see after pressing those buttons) appears in the monitor on its own and keeps on coming and disappearing continuously. The contrast menu appears and it goes up to 100% on its own. If I press decrease button of the monitor sometimes it decreases but again immediately increases up to maximum. It remains there and hardly goes off from the monitor.In the Device Manager I've checked the status of Monitor n in the Properties therein it shows the 'device is working properly'. This gives a lot of troubles in my working. Would you please suggest me something to fix it? I have tried all the method from reinstalling graphic driver to checking the cables.
This is a problem in the monitor itself. The computer has absolutely no control over the On Screen Display. Most likely the button that controls contrast is stuck. You might try blasting the button with canned air. Sounds like it might be time to buy a new or used monitor.
