    Ok I tried the shut-down and everything you told me to do and it's still the same. Any other idea's. ( It's making me nuts)

  • Vicki Lynn Irwin May 18, 2008

    Thanks for the number. I called the tech line and they said the coils are going out. I have taken the cover off and unpluged everything I could find. I left it unplugged over night I will try it again to night and if it doesnt work I have to buy another. Thanks for your help. I would recommend you for service anyday.

    Thank again

The feature will be called Auto Adjust on your osd menu, I'm not quite sure where exactly it will be but by clicking on this within the menu will fit it perfectly to your screen. It possibly will even be it's own button on the screen. Since I am not totally familiar with this exact model, I can't be more specific but if you are having trouble, please let me know the options and I can tell you where to look since all monitors are basically the same.

    look in an other or special option menu selection for the auto adjust, they won't always be in the size and position as it resets everything. It could also be a button on the front of the screen like I said before. You could also try leaving the screen unplugged overnight and it should reset. If nothing is changing then you may be in the OSD lock. To get out of the lock you need to hold the menu button down until it unlocks, usually around 10 seconds. Let me know where we are at with this, thanks

    Since I can't think of why it shouldn't work, I would call this number and see if they have faced this problem before (800) 688-6688

    Also, when you unplugged it, was it for a few minutes or hours, try 3 hours just in case it is holding power somehow

    thanks for the feedback, always glad to here back from people like you and thanks for letting me know what the manufacturer thinks. I've never had a problem with any monitor going out, must just be a rotten egg. Have a good day

OSD= On Screen Display. That feature keeps the information such as channel,time, ect.. for a length of time that you choose in the menu on the screen. Some sets let you change the color of it and also the background.

OSD is basically the on screen display, meaning the various menu options that appear on the screen. You can turn it off by hitting the menu button on the remote till it disappears. Here is a user guide for your TV:
