Question about Samsung SyncMaster 2253BW LCD Monitor
I was just working online as usual when I noticed a pop-up on my 2nd monitor (Westinghouse L1916HW) that said something like "auto adjusting". I wondered about it but it went away and I forgot about it until I went to turn off the monitor and the buttons didn't work. These are touch sensitive buttons on the right side, not actual push type buttons. I tried restarting my computer but that didn't work. I considered unplugging it to reset but I'm afraid I won't be able to turn it back on. Can anyone help? Thanks!

The monitor thinks the "AUTO" button is depressed continuously. If water or something got into the button membrane and shorted it out it could cause this to happen. You would have to open up the screen to try and clean the buttons but that's not a guaranty.

SOURCE: Auto Adjust not working
The monitor is bad.
It's all over the internet... It seems to be a lot (of production line) issue... I am in BRAZIL and I bought one that's behaving the exact same way.
Dozens of forums in Portuguese (our language here, ICYDN) relate the same problem... Also checked English and German... STAY AWAY FROM THE T220.
