Menu screen keeps popping up stop

In my case I took the monitor apart and replaced the small plug on the Menu switch unit with soldered connections. This requires you to have a very small soldering iron, mine has 1mm tip. The problem seems to be caused by the connections in this plug, or the other end on the On/Off board making intermittent or poor connections. This is not a job for the faint hearted. Getting the monitor apart is answered elsewhere but the following is a brief summary. With the monitor facing you pull the top of the bottom bezel towards you with two hands. It will come away from the screen face,keep on pulling until you hear the fasteners clicking out. Work your way round the bezel from left up to right down finishing at the menu switches. Its now best to lay the monitor face down and lift the back off as the switches are held in the front bezel and you will break the wires if you just pull the front off. Photograph it so you know how to reassemble. Reassembly is reverse, lay monitor on face locate back correctly and push down round edges to click in.

When i power up gateway screen is black

Most likely, its a power supply issue. Have fixed a couple of these by replacing bad capacitors on the power supply board. A bad capacitor will have the top bulging, not flat on top as it should be. The way to get the monitor apart is a little tricky. You will need to remove the screws around the top, sides, and bottom, Do Not remove screws on back in the middle. These screws hold the metallic pan that houses the power supply it's self. I used an orange pealer from Tupperware to pray the front face plate away from the back. You can use a screwdriver, if you don't mind a little marring on the face plate plastic. It's not easy removing the front face piece, lots of interconnecting plastic locks all.around the front face plate. Using your pry tool and pulling (you'll need to use a little muscle) to get the front off. Once face plate is loose, you'll notice the screen is connected to the power supply, one in the middle usually can be pulled and disconnected using your hand. I suggest taking pictures before removing the other wires holding the screen to the power supply. At this point, the front plate is removed, and the screws holding the the screen have been removed, wires disconnected, and power supply in view. Best of luck

How do I adjust the screen tilt and height? HELP!!!!!!

Hi, Here is what I was able to find out about your monitor from ViewSonic. There is no manual available on their website.
I have two ViewSonic monitors that are very similar to the one you have.
Here is what I can tell you. The monitor, although it does not seem like it can, be tilted front to back.
If you grip the monitor screen on the side edges (left and right) and 1/3rd the way up and twist it either away or toward you, it should tilt. It is a little stiff, just go ahead and tilt it. As far as adjusting the high. That, I'm sorry to say cannot be done.
I hope this helps you.
Best Regards,

Samsung SyncMaster 720N ...

OK, I've figured it out! There's something wrong with the control chip, so if you don't have it under warranty, here's what you can do:
1. Turn off the monitor
2. Unscrew the face of the monitor
3. Remove the bottom part of the face from the backside, so you can see the chip
(the control chip is located on the face of the monitor, under the buttons)
4. You will see a small white connector about 5mm wide, UNPLUGG it
5. Put the small cable that you've unconnected under the front, so you can close the monitor back
6. Close the monitor and plug it back in

That's it. You won't be able to change your settings (they autoadjust anyway), but you won't have to throw the monitor away!

Removing back

Hi, I used to repair a monitor from Dell. You might have to check what wrong with your monitor by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem like broken lamps and it is very easy to replace. But the most important part is you need to know how to teardown the screen. Actually, a flat dell screen has 4 screws at the rear panel and no ***** for front frame. For you LCD monitor, If there is no visible *****, you have to look for "capped" ***** holes (little covers that fit flush with the case to hide the screws). If you don't see these neither, this must be a tension fit case. So, following these step by step
1. face the screen up and look for "rectangular hole" on the side edge (usually at the bottom edge of the screen). This will be a challenge to open without breaking it.

2.You'll need a very thin flat ***** driver and wedge it into that narrow rectangular hole. You can use any prybar if you don't have ***** driver.

3.It is not too deep. You may stab something important inside and pry it. Once it starts to spread, start sliding it along the seem and you should feel the tension tabs start "popping" open. 4.Continue to work your way around until it's off.

Hope this help you to get the remove the back cover off. If there is anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

Screen tiled and i can't move it back

Try reseting the settings to factory defauts in the monitors user menu. You can get more details from the manual on this.

If reseting the settings doesnt work. Could you take a photo so we would have a better understanding of the problem :-)

Or do you mean the screen is fysically tilted? If parts are broken and you are unable to move the screen, then I cant offer much help, you could contact acer for support or to take it to a local pc shop for analysis.

Dell monitor

Tantong's description is correct -- press on side tabs and pry apart the face while working from the middle of the sides to the top. Once the sides are separated, remove the top, and remove the bottom last.

Monitor Adjustment (hardware)

It is usually just a matter of forcing it back. You migh check if there are any kind of handles/knobs to loosen, but there usually isn't. Check if the screen should be lifted up (some bases are kind of telescopic) frmo the bottom position to losen it. Any chance of a picture of the side/back of the monitor?
