Auto button pushed, how to reverse changes

I accidentally pushed the auto button on the front of my monitor. It changed the way the text looks. How can I get it back to the way it was? Thanks.

    I ended up adjusting the fine and coarse numbers in the menu and believe I got back from whence I came.

There are buttons on the front of the monitor. Why

The first button is the E-power button for the Auto preset function.With it you can select presets like text, standard, graphics etc. depending on your use.
When you select any button the options are displayed at the bottom of the window. These tell you what button to press to select the next option.
For example press --menu-- > -- > -- menu , to adjust the horizontal and vertical position.

To turn off the monitor you must press and hold the --circle with the line -- button for a couple of seconds.

When clicking the auto adjust button, the screen shrinked.

if it is an lcd monitor make sure the refresh rate is set to 60hz and the resolution is at least 1024X768 then try to push auto adjust again. To get to the refresh click on the advanced button when the display properties is open.

Need help with Mitsubishi 15

Try pushing the contrast button, and then some of the other buttons once the contrast menu is up. To control those menus you use the buttons on the front of the monitor, not the keyboard and mouse.
