VX724 monitor contrast keep resetting

I have a viewsonice VX724 LCD monitor and the contrast menu keep popping up, set itself to 0 and stay open. There's no driver for my product and i've already tried the VX715 drivers which is a previous version of the same monitor. I have also turn off the monitor multiple times without any result. If a hold the "up arrow" the contrast goes back to what i had it set to but few sec after it goes back down to 0. The only way i can close the menu is if i hold "1"(exit/menu) + "up arrow" , which set the contrast then close the menu and then pop a message saying "White Balance" but few sec after it goes down again.

Sound like i'll have to ask for a RMA but any other solution would gladly be welcome.

Thank you.

When you have strange problems like this, the first place to look will be the power supply/inverter board, look for caps with leaking/bulging tops.

My E19T6W 19" LCD monitor


Sorry, I have no solution, just thought you might like to know that I am having the exact same problem.
The only thing I can add is that it appeared after a night that my computer was set to do a weekly upload of Microsoft, anti-virus and anti-spyware updates. Also, that night we had some electrical storms. The menu pops up in the bottom right corner at very erratic intervals and sometimes just flashes, while other times stays on for minutes. It is driving me crazy!
I have tried updating the monitor driver and the video card using the "Device Manager" icon found in the "Control Panel". No luck. I have also ran anti-virus and anti-spyware scans and also used AVG to scan and fix registry errors. No luck.
I am open to suggestions.
Thanks

Config screen keeps popping up


A friend of mine had the exact same same problem. I think I fixed it, because it has been 2 hours, without the menu popping up. You need to open the monitor:

- Place it face-down on a flat surface
- Remove the cover of the hinge by gripping it with both hands and gently squeezing and pulling.
- Undo the 4 screws and remove the stand (base)
- Undo the four screws tha hold the cover down (4 corners)
- Use a flat screwdriver to seperate the 2 halves (I used 2, a small one to lift the back, a bigger one for leverage)

You will see a small PCB, fastened by 3 screws, at the bottom (where your menu+on/off buttons are) with a ribbon connection to the screen. Next:

- Unscrew the PCB, and gently lift it out.
- Clean the microswitches and the ribbon cable connection.
- Reassemble the monitor.

To clean microswitches and the connection, I used Kontakt Video 90 spray. There must be sprays on the market where you are. It's basically an alcohol-based cleaning spray. Good for cleaning video/tape/floppy heads, CD/DVD lenses, memory modules, etc.

Good luck!

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.

Hi, did you solve your Samsung SyncMaster 910MP problem? I have the same problem, I can't see TV but I hear the audio; do you know if it's only a setting problem or i have to bring the monitor in a service...


I had what you describe here, I could hear audio, see the menu, all was there but no picture. Then I found out that my 910MP had done a spontaneous reset of the Contrast/ Brightness/ Color/ Sharpness to 0/0/0/0 by itself. I have raised the settings again and the video is back.

Sounds like the buttons are sticky. Open unit and clean with electronic cleaner. May try spray with unit off.

Menu keeps popping up


Never a good idea to clean with any spray cleaner. The cleaner does get down in the button bar and cause corrosion and shorting along ribbon cable. Use screen wipes for computer monitors only on TV's and any type of monitors. You can remove the back of the case. And remove the button board and clean with a cue tip and alcohol along ribbon cable.

Contrast window keeps on popping in the monitor


Hi, it might be that a sensor in the monitor is sensing change in ambient light and therefore reacts by auto adjusting the contrast. when you push auto, it will do just that and auto react. Why not try manual and set it to your desired setting and let it run that way. But then again, of course it is possible that something is really wrong with the monitor and you would need a qualified service personnel to diagnose/repair it. Hope this be of some help and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
