There must be somethng shorting out the menu button. To troubleshoot, the monitor needs to be opened and the button board and cable needs to be checked for problems.

Here you go!
From Dell website:
'OSD Lock': Controls user access to adjustments. When 'Yes' (+) is selected, no user adjustments are allowed. All buttons are locked except the menu button.
All buttons can be locked or unlocked when the 'Menu' button is pushed and held for over 15 seconds. See more here:

Main Menu Keeps Popping up


The only suggestion I could make would be to consider opening the monitor up and inspecting the control panel for a stuck button or damaged control. While this is feasible, the real question is whether it is cost effective if repairable. The ever decreasing cost of equipment is making monitor replacement very affordable, even if it is filling our landfills with junk.

The brightness/contrast menu keeps popping up and scrolling through the exit, brightness and contrast options. It is a Dell E173FP monitor. I have tried disconnecting and reconnecting the cables and...


Try pushing the buttons for the brightness if it does the same thing you need to replace it, the buttons might be damaged already by pushing too hard or it got stuck.
If this is just a new LCD monitor about 1 to 2 years old contact tech support of dell so you can get this replaced.

hi,

It is possible that menu button on the monitor is stuck. I suggest to call your computer manufacturer where you purchased the monitor, check for the warranty and request for a replacement.

Keep me posted.

Thanks

Yes, it does appear as if there is a loose connection somewhere inside, or a faulty IC chip. However, I wouldn't recommend opening it up, as there can be any number of reasons why this can be happening, and if you have no prior experience, there is no point opening it up. I recommend getting it serviced, or purchase a new monitor...whichever works out cheaper for you.

Brightness and contrast screen in center of monitor and can't remove it


the micro switches on the monitor are getting short which is triggering the menu, try to clean it with a switch cleaner or check if the switches can be replaced, do this only if u r an expert in handling things like this or take some proffessional assistance.

E173FP 17" LCD Monitor Problem


I have the same problem. It seems like a virus to me, but my anti-virus doesn't find anything. I went to the main menu on the moniter and changed the display time to five seconds and locked the OSD display. Now all the appears is a smaller box showing a lock which goes out in five seconds. It is still annoying, but less intrusive then before. Hopefully, some one will determine a permanent fix for this problem.
