Question about LG Flatron L1951S 19" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

My monitor constantly displays "NORMAL" across the middle of my screen. I am unable to use any of the buttons on the monitor other than the power button. I've checked all the connections which are fine. This happened all of a sudden after I rebooted my computer. Any help would be appreciated! :D

Re: My monitor constantly displays "NORMAL" across the...

I would actually suggest to consider the drivers of your graphics adapter.

Try upgrading the drivers of your video card. If you already have the most recent ones, I would UNINSTALL the display adapter in Windows Device Manager...and reboot the system once more.

If necessary, I would roll back the driver to a previous version.

I suspect that perhaps there may be an issue with the refresh rate or something along those lines coming from your card to your monitor. Perhaps some kind of ratio issue?

One thing I would do is definitely check the manual to your monitor and find out what "Normal" really means. THIS is what I found:

"Lightview hot key
This feature lets you easily select the best desired
image condition optimized to the environment
(ambient illumination, image types etc).
• DAY : Bright ambient illumination
• NIGHT : Dark ambient illumination
• TEXT : For text images (Word processing etc.)
• MOVIE : For animation images in videos or movies
• PHOTO : For pictures or drawings
• NORMAL : This is under normal operating conditions"

So looking at that, I am led to believe that your monitor is switching viewing modes somehow. I would inspect the button that would potentially change these modes and make sure that it's not jammed somehow. It could very well be the problem causing your other buttons to be inoperable. (If it's somehow being held down by a foreign object for instance.)

Click HERE for the manual. (Don't enter your email addy. Just click the download button.)

That's about all I can really see as a problem without seeing it personally.

Why did my computer monitor stop showing an image?

Disconnect it from computer and power. wait 15 minutes and plug only the power back in, press the power on button. The monitor may display a message that there is no signal or something like that. If that happens the problem is either the cable or the computer. If you get no message then look for the menu button and press it to see if any thing appears. If not find the manual on line and read it. Many times monitors get over-driven by computers to the point that they can't display OR they self destruct.


Another way is to just unplug everything computer and monitor for 15 minutes. Plug in monitor first then plug in computer and press the power button, the display should display the booting information if the cable is good and the monitor is good.

I am unable to turn the screen off and the Menu button, actually, none of the buttons on the screen works. It constantly shows the Volume in the centre of the screen and I cannot remove it. Please help! ...

If none of the button are working then it could mean that one of the buttons is stuck or there is an issue with the board on the monitor itself.

Unplug the monitor from power and the computer. Make sure none of the buttons are stuck down, plug only power back in to the monitor and see what it shows. Plug it back into the computer and check to see if the problem returns

Volume pop up in the middle of my screen

Sounds like one of the front panel buttons is stuck in - possibly the volume down button. If no buttons work, this could be the reason why. Just a guess. If they all feel OK, it may still be worth pulling the back off, (Without electricuting yourself -DISCONNECT POWER!) remove the PCB board that has the buttons on it, and see if it turns on without the menu. If so, check all buttons, rare but I have seen one that looked fine but with a multimeter it showed it wasnt working. If the screen still displays the menu, Id say there is a bigger problem... HTH

"input not supported"

what you may need to do is find an accepted screen resolution, as your screen is 19" widescreen and your notebook will be set for a normal monitor display, so either try the auto button on the screen or look at the properties of your graphics card om the notebook to find supported screen resolutions for extended displays.

Monitor displays vertically

If you mean that your screen display became narrower, then there are usually buttons on the screen to fix this, among other adjustments of the screen. the setting you're looking for has a two way arrow going horizontally through the middle of an icon representing the screen. In case i'm misunderstanding your problem, or this does not help, you can also try to let the screen rest for a while(at least 30 minutes), and turn it back on, to allow it to degauss. Good luck
