In the menu is a timeout function, as long as your making a movement choice you should be able to find it. if nothing else go up and down until you locate it.

    what ever monitor you are using is the same for most all type.
    you open the menu button
    to go up and down use an adjacent button to go up or down you will have to experiment to find which one.
    then to enter the menu it is either the menu button again or another button entirely another expeirment
    sometime the osd buttons are on the side of monitor instead of the front like menu.

Lcd monitor working fine but the adjustment screen apears on my monitor in a small square enveloppe how can i restore system thanks in advanceDewulf Jan


I assume by "adjustment screen" you mean the OSD (On Screen Display). This is the box where the menus for adjusting the screen appear. If I'm correct, that means you have pushed the "menu" button on your LCD and need to push it again to turn the OSD off. If pushing it again does not solve the problem I would say it's time to have the LCD repaired. In many, but not all, that OSD goes off on it's own after a bit.

My 2001FP shows the contrast cotrol greyed out and the screen has very low contrast, which I need to correct. I use it with a Dell Inspion 9300. The laptop screen has excellent contrast. The 2001FP...


I have four Dell 2001FP monitors. The unavailable contrast is standard for this monitor when used with digital input (DVI). Make sure your brightness is at 100%.If you want a better result of dynamic range and color, the only effective option is color calibration. I use the inexpensive Huey Pro, available
several places, including eBay. Retail is around $100. It something one uses maybe twice a year, takes five minutes to install and use, and the results are notable. I'm a designer, and need excellent color. This is the best solution. Calibrate your laptop as well, and the color should be almost exactly the same between them.

As an alternative, you can use the color settings, select User Preset, and start with something around 40 red 43 green and 37 blue. Adjust proportionately upward until you get what you want.

Another possibility is to use a different connector cable if your laptop has that option, since your monitor an take four different input formats.

Good luck.

Osd main menu and brightness bpxes stay in center of screen


-the main problem with your monitor is the OSD buttons
-the OSD buttons could be stuck so you can try checking the OSD buttons one by one to check which one is stuck
-try pressing it if it could remove the stuck buttons or you can try using a toothpick to remove the stuck OSD button

Stupid padlock/main menu keeps opening and closing DELLe152fp


That is the OSD (On Screen Display) system built-in to your computer monitor. Check that when you hit the ON/OFF button on your monitor, that you do *NOT* hit the 'OSD ON/OFF' button.

Most of the time, the OSD will disappear after 10 seconds of "non-use".

How do I set the monitor so the menu will stay on long enough to change it?


There should be a setting in the monitor menu listed as OSD (On Screen Display). Try increase the length of time for it to stay on longer.

This just means the On Screen Display (OSD) is locked. Press and hold the menu button on the front panel for 10 seconds.

OSD on m onitor


sounds like bad capacitors on the power pack, is this an older monitor ? could use some more info on age and type of monitors and the video card used.
OSD is On Screen Display and it is for adjusting screen functions like color brightness etc.
different screen resolutions can cause a monitor to shut down.

Proview TFT has got volume option mute , need to unmute it & dont know :(


navigate with the monitor buttons to the OSD (on screen display). menu button brings up the OSD. then use volume buttons to move around. there should be a mute option or indications by symbols how to unmute the sound option. if there is not, i would guess pressing two buttons at the same time might do it.
