When I puss the start/stop button the desk top displayes but only briefly. I then get a black screen as if it were not turned on

How to reset factory setting of monitor lg l1720B


Sounds to me like the button is stuck with pressure on the sensor. try moving button around a bit if it is a flat surface button then the surface is likely distorted and wont release it would have to be replaced at that point.

The first requirement is that you must have video coming from your PC, then you have to press and hold for more than 10 seconds the "MENU (OK)" botton, this must unlock the OSD controls of your monitor.

The main menu appears and disappears without any input. And also a picture of a lock also appears and disappears without any inputs. The picture of the lock is either locked or unlocked


It seems that the problem is the monitor is detecting that the menu button is continually being pressed or the switch is shorted. Try pressing the menu button a few times to see if you can make this stop. Otherwise, the monitor needs to be repaired. Hope this helps.

How do I adjust the brightness? It's too much?


Hi,
By following these steps u can adjust the brightness

Step 1
Press "Menu" on your LCD's display panel (usually below the screen). Various display options will be shown on the screen.
Step 2
Select brightness from the options. This is usually indicated by a sun. Use the "+" and "-" buttons on your display panel to increase or decrease brightness.
Step 3
Select contrast from the options. This is usually indicated by an oval half black and half white. Use the "+" and "-" buttons on your display panel to increase or decrease contrast.

Thank you

Continual pop-ups saying OSD Main Control locked followed by language choice, etc. I have tried the buttons on the monitor with no effect


I held down the OK button for several seconds and the message vanished. On releasing the OK button, the problem reappeared. I intend to put a rubber glue (one that can be removed) which hardens on application, to hold down the OK button in the pressed position. Hope this solves the problem.

The contract button seems to be stuck. Try pressing the button hard a few times and see if it helps. If the contract button still keeps poping up and it may be a physical problem with the button there.

Settings for dcl lcd monitor


Hi,
Your laptop resolution is greater than the external monitor can handle. From your laptop, try changing the screen resolution to 800x600, if it works, up the ante to 1024x768. You can bring it up again until you find a comfortable screen resolution. You will eventually stop to a point when your external monitor displays about 80% of the laptop screen. That is, back to your original problem. But you get the idea. Cheers!

Monitor won't turn on -- flashes on then off again


This is probably a RAM memory trouble, you have to try with 2 ways: 1) Try with another RAM memory to start your pc, 2) Verify the memory using a DOS software to check it.

Also, you could reset the BIOS using the jumper settings established on the PC Motherboard Manual to try if the BIOS is fail, or update the PC BIOS.

At last, You must check the temperature generated on the devices, if it's warm it means that the Hardware needs to add more fan coolers, or deactivate Overclocking. The overheat cause this fail too.

Click on this site to setup Bios or Cmos :

DCLCD 19" flatscreen won't turn on correctly


Same problem here, but after using the plugging/unplugging method it eventually stopped all together. So, I took it to a local monitor repair shop (AM Stereo, Seattle). The problem is a power supply issue where the capasitors go bad. They fixed the monitor by replacing the capacitors for $70. In there experience, all monitors, regardless of brand, tend to use the same cheap capacitors which fail. He replaced them with better quality capacitors which may make this monitor better than it ever was. I'm back in business with a great monitor!
