My monitor started acting up months ago.but i can't take it anymore.
my menu pops up,flashs at me,stays on and changes settings all
by it self.
is there anything i can do to fix my monitor myself or do i have to
throw it away and get another one?

It would seem that you posted your problem several times. As stated in my proposed solution in your other postings: Unfortunately, an
HCL HCM782M monitor is an unknown model. However, on similar instances
and occurrence of this problem, it would seem that the controls are
damp. Specifically, it would be the internal contacts of the buttons.
Pls check if you can dis-assemble, remove the board/control/buttons and
perform cleaning. Pls pay particular attention to the rubber pads or
the small buttons themselves. if I may ask, any recent continuous rain?
If yes, this may have contributed or caused your problem.
this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or
should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
it is not a bad rom. if it was a rom it would constantly act up but it only acts up upon overheating. The solution is difficult but if you open the monitor you can find all of the heatsinks take them of and replace them with bigger ones. or have a fan blowing on it at all time it is active i added bigger heatsinks to my emachine le1799 and it solved this problem of pulling up menu and changing setting by itself and the lack of the ability to turn power of.
Never a good idea to clean with any spray cleaner. The cleaner does get down in the button bar and cause corrosion and shorting along ribbon cable. Use screen wipes for computer monitors only on TV's and any type of monitors. You can remove the back of the case. And remove the button board and clean with a cue tip and alcohol along ribbon cable.
