Auto adjust in progress


1. Push the menu button at the front side of your Dell monitor. The icon looks look like a miniature version of your monitor.

2. Push the menu button again. This will exit the monitor menu and launch the OSD (On-Screen Display) menu.

3. Use the down arrow button on your monitor to select "Factory Reset."

4. Push the menu button.

5. Use the down arrow button to select "All Settings." Press the menu button to save changes.

6. Push the menu button twice to exit from the menu. Your Dell monitor will go back to its factory settings default, and its auto-detect feature will be disabled.

I have a Dell e173pfb monitor. i push the power button and green light comes on screen comes on for a second with no problem then the backlight goes off. I can still see an image with a flashlight though....


You need a new backlight inverter board. If you dissasemble the monitor you will see a circuit board with 4 2-wire connectors connected to it. This is the board you need to replace. Typically they run from $15 to $40. Usually just easier to replace the monitor. Another idea is to reduce brightness levels on the monitor in the menu while looking at it with your flashlight. Then power off then power on the monitor and it might stay on longer.

Your AUTO settings button is stuck in! Try tapping on it a few times. Otherwise you may have to take the frame apart so you can get at the button.

Vusys hd19a monitor is always on standby


Cut and paste from another site:

I was called to repair similar incident last week. A Compaq box (don't remember the model) with a 'smart' usb keyboard. By this I mean that the keyboard had a row of what I'll call hot buttons. The client had pushed a button with a moon on it causing the monitor to go into sleep mode. I suspect that whatever key you pushed had the same effect.
After plugging a known good monitor into the faulty box I verified that the box was OK. This left me to think the monitor itself had a problem. Plugged the suspect monitor into a known good machine.. and it worked fine!!!
Set machine and monitor to original configuration and still had no video. Decided that the monitor was too smart for its own good and maybe there was something in the monitors menu. Pushed and held the 'menu' button on the monitor for a few seconds and menu comes forward. Green power led also comes on (surprising me) so I powered up the computer and lo and behold the problem is fixed!

I found this on another site:
[QUOTE=numbnutjas]I had the same problem along with lots of others who bought this great prolite monitor.

Whenever you turn the power off for more than five seconds the monitor looses an important bit of info of a hidden menu. Iilyama are not keen on publicizing the fact their monitor has a bug!

Follow these steps very carefully, it might not work the first time but it does work I promise.

Make sure that the moniter power button is off.

Unplug monitor from mains ( the auto exit button should flash red after about five seconds and you hear a popping sound.)

plug monitor back in mains.

hold down + and - on the monitor

now hold down power button on monitor

let go of power when power button when the green led lights up

let go of + and - buttons

wait a few seconds and press menu, a hidden menu will appear in the top right

use the + and - buttons to move the hilighted option over the auto colour option in the menu
push the menu button.


It does work, but if you have any problems: email at : miamoo2038 at hotmail dot co dot uk
