Question about Computer Monitors
Auto Adjustment keeps erratically blinking on and off. When Auto Adjustment is Locked, then a window that states Auto Adjustment is locked erratically blinks on and off
I'm having a similar problem except with the Brightness box. The problem, which I'm assuming may be related to yours as well, is that the button at the bottom of the monitor continuously thinks it's being pushed. I've tried blowing compressed air into it and even took the monitor apart to see if I could somehow loosen the button contact a bit, but neither of these worked for very long before it started again.
I'd consider sending it to Samsung for repairs, but I lost the original receipt and can't confirm my purchase date :( Any ideas at all would be greatly appreciated.
Samsung told me to push the menu button and then the one with the arrow on it (4 fromt he left) and hold that one down for like 20 seconds. It seemed to work but I am not sure, we will see if it continues to work, if not they said they will get it repaired and gave me a transaction # to use if I need to call back so we don't have to start from square one.

I'm having the same problem. Started three days ago. Really annoying. First I downloaded a driver because that was reccommended over plug and play. But that did not fix the problem. I ended up pressing the menu key (1st on left) and while holding it down I wedged a little piece of paper to hold the key down and the popup menu's have stopped. The box can be the brightness/contrast or auto/image reset/color reset ...
it doesn't matter, they all popup after pressing buttons left and right. Have no answer to correct the problem but at least I can now compute without these stupid menus.

It was determined by SAMSUNG that I had a malfunctioning monitor. Since at that time it was under warranty, They sent me a new monitor, however, although the new monitor worked fine, three months later, the video module on the motherboard went out. I just plugged a new video card in the slot and everything is now functioning properly.
