Question about ViewSonic E70b 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Random Tweaking of Settings

I have a two year old 17' Viewsonic E70b monitor. The problem it has is that the settings like color, contrast etc are getting tweaked randomly on their own and sometimes the OSD lock message appears. On Windows my NVIDIA display driver is crashing after a while and I am getting a blue screen while on Linux everything runs fine except the messages. Could anyone point out the exact cause of the problem ?

How to display setting


There should be a menu button on the front of this screen, in this menu you will be able to adjust the settings for your monitor, brightness, contrast, size etc...
If you would like to adjust the resolution; right click on the desktop and select Properties.
Select the settings tab and slide the resolution bar to the right to increase the resolution or to the left to decrease the resolution.

Plz give me the setting of the monitor of 17" destops examples ; brightness contrast etc


Those are normally personal preference, especially seeing as each monitor is different. Adjust the settings to get the screen looking how you like it. The best place to start is "50" across the board on all of them and start tweaking from there. Like i said, each monitor is different so there is no way to say "these settings are the perfect settings"

I am using a Viewsonic VX2235WM monitor for photo editing


Hi!

Its actually normal. That normally happens to some monitor models at the 6500K setting. Try a higher one.

I hope this helps.

Brightness and contrast decreased automatically


check that you were not running any programs that you have allowed to automatically change settings, enter control panel and set settings to allow manual changes only!

VA721/Windows 2000 - contrast/brightness settings grayed out


The monitor is probably set to sRGB under "color adjust".

Change it to 6500K, which is default, and you should be able to adjust brightness and contrast.

Issue with my 17" Viewsonic VA1716w LCD monitor


If all the buttons on the front don't work I would beleive it was a cable that is not connected correctly. I've seen things like this happen on otherwise perfectly good equipment. It's probably an easy fix however, monitors have enough power to KILL YOU (dead not a little bit very dead) if your not sure what your doing find someone who is most things I encourage you to open up and play with but not monitors. (did I mention you could die)

Memory recall


From the Users Manual for this monitor: "Memory Recall returns the adjustments back to factory settings if the display is operating in a factory Preset Timing Mode listed in the Specifications of this manual. - Exception: This control does not affect changes made with the User Color control, Language Select or Power Lock setting." When the monitor is asking "Memory Recall OK?" it either wants to initiate a settings Recall, or it's asking if the Recall was successful. In either case, the "Memory Recall OK?" message is supposed to go away when you push either button 1 or button 2. If it does this when you are adjusting settings then it's likely just doing what you told it to, even if you don't realize you told it to do that. It's also possible for one of the settings buttons to be stuck down and this is causing it to try and change the Recall settings. Push each of the buttons on the monitor and pay attention to what each one feels like as you push on it. If one of them feels different from the others, it's likely stuck. Tapping lightly on the settings buttons or on the panel beside them will usually free up a stuck button. If a button is stuck and won't loosen up by tapping beside it, you might need to pry up on the edges of the button VERY gently with the sharp tip of a pointy kitchen knife. If it's doing this when you did not touch any of the settings buttons at all, then this is likely being caused by a dendrite whisker or faulty circuit trace inside the monitor and you'll need to take the monitor to a service technician for repair. But remember to contact Viewsonic first and go to whatever Service Center that they advise, since a repair of this type may be covered under warranty. One other thing you could try before spending money on it is simply to change the Timing mode in the Windows display settings. Go to "Control Panel > Display", then select the "Settings" tab and click the "Advanced" button. Select the "Monitor" tab and change the screen timing to a different Hertz value in the "Screen refresh rate" menu box. Don't forget to save these settings by clicking "Apply" and "OK" to close all of the Windows settings windows. Hope that helps solve your problem...
