Question about Dell E172FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
The lock, unlock symbol keep appearing in the middle of the screen. Also, the "Main Menu" for the monitor keeps appearing and disapearing in the middle of the screen. I have tried pushing and holding the menu button on the front of the monitor but cannot get these items to stop flashing on my screen. How do I get these items to stop popping up. The brightness/contrast adjustment window pops up on it's own. It then scrolls through at a high speed. Sometimes I can remove it by turning off the monitor for a moment, sometimes not. Ant suggestions?

The up/down button on your flat panel is stuck. Please contact Dell Technical Support to have the monitor replaced if its still within warranty.

You can adjust the
brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and
to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.
To improve the results
when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use
Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these
color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display
color in Windows,
see Calibrate your display.
The way you adjust
brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.
Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast
controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following
On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some
displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and
contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by
pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.
