Benq monitor flashes primary colours when switch on or off
My 6 month old Benq monitor has started flashing primary colours repeatedly when I switch the computer on or off. It has a message at the top of the screen that says "enter right> burn in" Do I need to do something, and what causes it please, thanks.
Re: Benq monitor flashes primary colours when switch on...
This is called burn-in mode. Used to test the monitor at the factory.
To fix this, use the buttons under the front of the monitor,
There are six buttons. Let's number them 1 to 6 from the left.
Press 6 to display menu (at the bottom in Red will say Burn in mode on)
Press 4 or 5 until Recall is highlighted
Press 6 to select
Press 4 or 5 until Recall All is highlighted
Press 6 to select
Press 4 or 5 until Yes is highlighted
Press 6 to select
Press 3 to exit
This will reset all paramaters and also turn-off burn-in mode
If you want to reset some parameters to your preferences, press 6 again to bring up menu and
see you user guide to get explanations for the different settings.

my BenQ FP71G 17 in goes on after hundreds of times pushing on off switch and when it's on it does not go off, I have checked the on/off switch which is working oke and when the moniter is on the auto adjust message (brightness and contrast)pops up frequently and the screen adjusts itself.
Try connecting the monitor to a different computer, e.g., a laptop.
The power-cord to the monitor seems to be OK.
Check the "data" cable between the monitor and the computer -- try a different cable.
With the monitor turned on, restart your computer, and watch the monitor. The computer should show some start-up messages (white text over black background), followed by the Windows "splash" screen. If it does, the monitor is working correctly.
Quite the opposite -- your new monitor can't handle the screen settings that you're running on the old monitor.
Hook up the old monitor and start up the computer so you're looking at a Windows desktop. If you have windows open, close them or minimize them down to the taskbar so you can see the desktop/background image.
Right-click on the background image and select "Properties" to bring up the Display Properties dialog.
There are tabs across the top of this dialog -- select the one named "Settings"
In the bottom half of the Settings tab, there's a control named "Screen Resolution" with a slider to move between "less" and "more"
Move this slider to 1280x1024 or lower. If you're already at a resolution smaller than 1280x1024, then set it to 800x600 and we'll troubleshoot from there.
Hit "OK" to accept the new settings. Windows will ask if the new settings are OK -- click on "yes"
Now unplug your old monitor and plug in the Benq.
If you are happy with this screen resolution, then you're done!
If you're looking at 800x600 and want to see more, then repeat this process -- go to the Display Properties -> Settings dialog and try a bigger resolution. Hit "Apply" instead of "OK" to try a new setting.
If the screen says "OUT OF RANGE" for a setting, just wait for 15 seconds, and windows will revert to the old (working) settings.
Let me know how this works! If it's helpful, click the little thumbs-up. If it's not, ask questions and I'll try to explain in more detail
change the CRT/LCD to Presentation. this is done on a Dell (for example) by pressing the blue Fn key and the F8 key which cycles thru the three modes: off, shared or on. bit late (may 2009)0 but just in case/
Your monitor must have multiple inputs (Dvi,D-sub) so it searches when you start for which input is connected.
If menu popping up intemittently is your problem,The culprit is generally defective (Leaky) Key switches.You need to pen up monitor and replace.
Normally BenQ has a 3 year warranty.
Do you have your screen saver enabled, i so turn it off and se if it still does it.
Secondly boot your pc in safe mode(pressing F8) on boot up and select start windows in safe mode.
See if the monitor still does it, if so a monitor fault or loose/faulty vga lead.
If it is ok then your graphics driver may be corrupt and need re installing.
