(strange) volume control icon stuck in the middle of my LCD monitor and the buttons on the front of the monitor are frozen and will not work?????

Woke up this morning with a small gray volume control icon smack dab in the middle of my Acer LCD monitor. I don't know where it came from and it will not disappear nor can I click on it. Also the buttons on the front of the monitor are frozen but the green light is on. HELP!!!! I've been working on this problem all day!

    exact same problem here on a AL1912. Is very annoying. The solution supplied by Santo here does not work, (thanks anyway Santo). Please, anyone?

    Same issue with a 1912. It appears that the 'volume down' button is stuck on, but can't unstick it. Seems that if I hold down the 'volume up' button then press off, then on again (still holding down 'volume up') it'll stay away.

    It's been happening off and on for a while now - often happens when its humid.

mr farhanpk, When very strange stuff starts to appear on the screen of any older model ccfl -back-lit lcd display I would certainly suspect and investigate the monitors ac to dc internal power supply for BAD, SWOLLEN, LEAKY electrolytic filter capacitors. Check your pc with a "known-good" monitor to make certain it is not the pc causing the problem. 12fixlouie

HOW DO I TURN DOWN THE VOLUME? I DOTN SEE THE VOLUME BUTTON


This monitor has no volume. The volume is controlled by the computer connected to the monitor, and not controlling the monitor itself.

To regulate volume on computer, click on the small audio icon near to the clock, or locate the audio settings icon in control panel.

Volume pop up in the middle of my screen


no photos of said window presented? i cant see them?
must be OSD? the monitor brain on screen display (menu)?
even with the DVI cable pulled?
only a monitor stated, w1907, no PC
some monitors have button lock
read the manual ?oops HP deleted it...
it tells you to push the menu key on the monitor for 10 seconds
and it unlocks. (4 buttons right side left button is MENU)
doom?
that power deal sounds super bad, like the power supply is bad.
if the monitor fails by its self not plugged it to a PC
then the monitors is bad.
try a reset on it? ( power off for 1hr, or off then plug in with power button held? or power on with menu held (wild guesses but common practice)
ok found your manual page 4-8 shows menu page advanced
list line in list factory reset.
but if the keys are dead, and power lamp failing
the power supply is no good or worse. worse is always possible.
and expensive


ever see the support page, read the guides
?

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

Hi...there,
Very simple just plugged your audio cable to your lcd monitor jack , then do the same to your pc audio jack. From the front (with picture of a headphone) or from the back (green audio jack) To settings the volume control open the on screen display from the lcd monitor and look for volume settings. or go to your toolbar bottom r/h side look for the icon of a speaker and click on it...and that it... have nice a day!
