CM2015 15" LCD Monitor

I bought my monitor about 2 years ago, just recently it has started coming on with the contrast menu popped up. I tired to press '1' to exit, but nothing works and it won't come off the screen. i have tried unplugging the monitor for a while, and the contrast menu doesn't come on for about 2 minutes, but no matter what i do, it always comes back on. any suggestions?

Yes, sounds like the button is jamed down and is holding the little button on the inside in the down position.

Try poping it out using a little knife or by opening it up and fixing it from the inside. Make sure to unplug it first.

If it ame with a driver CD, install it, if not then the previouse should work

If your the monitor was purchased seprately from the computer , it might be still under warrnaty.Call Dell and get it replaced.If not, open the on screen menu and try factory reset on the monitor , it tends to fix the issue.
The monitor you are talking about is a philips or a dell

Plz open the case of the monitor and check the buttons and see if it is struck.If everything is ok then u have to show it to a qualified technician.

Caution Inside the monitor there is a high voltage so be carefull.

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

I get a pop up with a RED CONTRAST screen every few minutes It sometimes goes away if I push the contrast button on my Dell monitor. but it will usually come right back. I have tried everything to stop...


You can try the monitor on another computer to verify it is the monitor and not the display card at fault.

I'm assuming this is an LCD monitor. If you are sure the monitor is the problem, then your monitor's display driver circuit is probably getting close to failing. When one of the three colors (red, green, blue) becomes intermittent, the screen takes on the hue of the working colors. In your case it sounds like the blue is starting to fail.

A repair technician may be able to replace the circuit.

LCD back light is off or very dim


I changed monitors and it works??? What worked. Did the brightness appear? Is the monitor now functioning properly?

If not, monitors can have increase brightness by using the menu settings. The settings can be accessed by the buttons that are usually below the monitor screen on the front under panel. Adjust the brightness from there.

If that fails then change the monitor. That you are suggesting that the backlight is out, I am assuming that you have a flatpanel monitor and not a CRT. Either can be configured the same way using the menu buttons; however, the back light issues are different in the two types of monitor.

Good Luck

Main menu inviting to take a tour on how to adjust the monitor keeps popping up uninvited.


Your screen settings are not optimized for that monitor, most Gateways (to h*&%) come with a drivers disks for the monitors put that in and run setup for the monitor.

Contrast


contrast is a function controlled by the monitor not your computer ... do you have a lcd or crt monitor ... go into its control panel via the buttons on the monitor and reset it ... let me know what happens

It sounds like one of the capacitators inside the monitor is malfunctioning, these little things store a certain amount of necessary power and then discharge it when it is needed.  If it is malfunctioning, it could explain why it takes so long to charge, and why when you hit it, it suddenly comes on.
