I press the Menu button but cannot get a Menu on the screen.
Yesterday the contrast box - showing maximum kept coming onto the screen automatically - it has now disappeared.

    Odd. Is this a new monitor? Did it come with an installation disc? Have you installed any new programs lately that may have caused a conflict with your display? A new game, maybe? What is your operating system and graphics card?

Contrast Ghost


This is common problem observed in many monitors compaq,HP,HCL,IBM this is happens mainly in rainy season due to moisture,by this moisture monitor button circuit get rust inside and button pad remain pressed. so it shows a strip at the middle of monitor like contrast or brightness. So this is minor problem just replace the monitor display control button sensor or circuit.Temporarily you can warm up the monitor by hanging a bulb of 60 watt nearer your monitor to takeoff the moisture.(Dont hang the bulb too near to the monitor). It definitely solves your problem.

Good Luck

CRT MONITOR display


It sounds like this monitor may have what's called the "Windex syndrome" in TV repairs. If someone cleans the screen with a spray cleaner and it drips down the face, it can get onto the circuit board and cause intermittent button troubles. Sometimes it's possible to clean off the corrosion from that area, but the most reliable fix is to clean the board, replace the switches, and remove, check and if necessary replace any resistors connecting to the switches.

Monitor displays 'user mode' contrast icon @ 89%


Colin

If you can access the on-screen menu (see link below for manual) try and reset to factory settings.

http://bizsupport.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00385928/c00385928.pdf

If that doesn't resolve the problem, then also check and see if any of the control buttons are stuck, (Press button them flick finger away to try an release a stuck button)

If issue still exists, you can consult a TV repair shop, but essentially, then monitor is uneconomically repairable and it would be more cost effective to just replace it with an LCD monitor

IBM MONITOR ON SCREEN DISPLAY


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.

Contrast ,Brightness... box coming and going


Sorry it's a fault :( You can try to open the monitor and reallocate the buttons making sure that they are not stuck to the receiver,if that is the problem you will solve it. If the receiver itself is faulty,however, better get a new monitor. Of course if the monitor is still in warranty you can call LG's call center.
