Monitor will not turn off and keeps flashing the words Auto processing

For some reason my monitor will not turn off. When I turn my computer off the monitor remains in standy and does not respond when I touch the power button. Also the colors on the monitor are very bright and the screen keeps twitching and a box that says "auto processing" keeps popping up.

    My monitor will shut down. What happens on my computer is after I have been using it for 10-15 minutes, the auto processing button starts flashing and won't stop. I have tried to unplug the unit but it didn't fix it.

    I tried the unplugging but the problem still persists. Every time I try to access the monitors menu, the auto processing is triggered and shuts the menu off. I have tried to change screen resolution and scan rates but it still auto prcocesses.

    If anybody has any ideas I am open to suggestions.

My monitor suddenly started performing "Auto Processing" constantly. I tried all suggested remedies that I found online, without success. So I decided to take the monitor apart, which was not an easy task. As I suspected I found that the 5 button circuit board to be the culprit, once it is unplugged the problem went away. Unfortunately unplugging it is not a complete solution, as the power button is connected to the unit through it. I figure that corrosion on the board, possibly from normal household humidity, was the exact cause. I just made this find, and have yet to see if cleaning the board equals a solution…

SOURCE: Monitor will not turn off and keeps flashing the words Auto processing


My monitor is an hp pavilion f1503, at least 4yrs old.

And yes, I did push the power button, repeatedly (the first few months that this happened, not every few seconds). And now, again, it won't shut off at all. I'm pretty much thinking I'm screwbied until such a time when I want to go spend the bux on a new monitor, and by that time a new pc as well!

The only way to get the menu to stop blinking on and off is to slide a piece of plastic (like a keyring discount card) on top of the Menu button on the monitor. Otherwise, menu keeps popping up, and it goes directly to the brightness/contrast submenu, and then adjusts itself from +100 to -0, on the brightness. It's just possessed.

Processing auto configuration keeps coming up on

First check to see that all of the cables are connected and fastened in tightly between the monitor and computer using the tiny handscrews on them at the monitor side and on the video card where it connects to your computer.

Also, the resolution detection circuitry in the monitor could be going bad, or you could have a bad video cable connecting it to the computer, or lastly, the video card in your computer could be going bad.

A few separate things you can try:

1. If you have a spare video cable, connect using the spare cable to the monitor and the computer to see if this corrects the issue.

2. If you have another monitor, I would connect it to see if you continue to have video issues.

3. Consider buying a new monitor.

Processing auto configuration

Check your settings in "Power Options Properties".
Control panel/ power options/ advanced/ under power buttons make sure you have "shut down" when you press the power button on your computer.
I hope I am understanding your problem correctly. If not pls. explain what you mean by and when processing auto config. keeps flashing. Is there a black screen or a windows interface?

Monitor will not turn off and keeps flashing the words Auto processing

it is not a bad rom. if it was a rom it would constantly act up but it only acts up upon overheating. The solution is difficult but if you open the monitor you can find all of the heatsinks take them of and replace them with bigger ones. or have a fan blowing on it at all time it is active i added bigger heatsinks to my emachine le1799 and it solved this problem of pulling up menu and changing setting by itself and the lack of the ability to turn power of.
