Solution #5 just makes no sense at all. If the people above you said its fixed then why post something so stupid as that (warranty, personnel, can only be done by AOC????????? come on!!! Are you for real here??) Solution #1 fixed my problem right away! Thanks.

For my 917Sw 19"w, I just ran into this problem. It was kinda annoying, but after looking around then remembering to look in the instructions, I found I just had to turn off the monitor, then hold the left button as I turned the monitor back on.

Except that fiddling with buttons . . . uh . . . works? It's not even a mistake or error. It's a function of the monitor that you can turn off by 'fiddling with the buttons.'

I ran into this problem too, it was holding the menu button down while turning on the monitor that fixed it! All good now!

It is not at all a problem related to desktop or video card. It is most certainly a problem within the Monitor itself and will probaly need a change of some IC which can only be done by AOC service personnel (If under warranty) or by other skilled repairmen. No point fiddling with buttons & cords.

No, all you need to do is reset the monitor to factory settings. I fixed mine that way.
If your monitor goes off every 3 seconds (like mine did) you have to be fast or siwtch it on/off few times between the steps to get it fixed.
- 1st. unlock the OSD if when you press 'menu' you get the message 'OSD Locked'. To do this switch off the monitor, and press 'menu' while you switch it on again.
- 2nd. Switch it on, press 'menu' and quickly 'press '<' (left) twice and 'menu' twice to get it reset.
- 3rd switch it off and on again and if still goes off after 3/4 secs, try to reset it again.
I reset mine and it is working find. Before it went blank after 3 secs.
I just tried this because I did not understand why if it was a hardware problem I could see the screen for 2/3 seconds and if pressed on/off it came back, it made no sense as a hardware problem.

Hi there - I read in another forum to use the left button instead of menu. Give it a try - power off and hold left button while powering on.
I'll cross my fingers for you :)
