Screen too bright, have just got monitor from e-bay and there are no instructions on use.

Check all the buttons near the ON/OFF button.

One of the buttons will activate the OSD (On Screen Display).

The OSD controls everything about the monitor, including BRIGHTNESS and CONTRAST. Use the other buttons to move between menu-items, and to "select" one of the sub-menus, and to raise/lower settings, and to "exit" from a sub-menu to the main-menu.

The problem of OSD Menus popping up automatically are usually caused due to a faulty switch in the Menu button which is getting switched on automatically.

This menu will not harm the computer but constant OSD menu will most probably lead to permanent damage to the pixels in the LCD screen plus it is a constant irritation to your eyes which are most precious.

This problem can be rectified by replacing the faulty menu switch. Hope this solves your problem Thanks.
