    Same problem here.

    Monitor was working fine all along, then today in the middle of checking email it went all white.

    The menu and volume buttons no longer bring up the onscreen displays, and the power button is green when plugged in to the DVI jack.

    I have the same problem, Upon applying power, raster is white with a few horizontal lines. Then just a white raster. The monitor is not being over driven. Still is in focus. I disassembled and checked unit for discoloration, leaking capacitors. I removed the ribbon connectors and reseated them to no avail. I could fix this if I had a schematic.

    My images always appear to be out of focus. Everything on this monitor is fuzzy looking. I've tried adjusting the screen resolution but with no luck. Could it be the monitor is created for Windows Vista and I'm using Windows XP?

Normally white screen is panel or Interface board related problem or a supply to panel gone missing.

You may loose connections at the end of the VGA cable, or video card not seated tightly. I would check that first.

Do you have a keyboard manual?

No, there is no manual for a "keyboard", since the HannsG monitor does *NOT* have an attached keyboard.

The monitor takes ages to come on & sometimes when it does come on its very bright..

Go into the control panel and adjust your settings...hopefully this speeds up things!
