It may be a malfunctioning circuit board controlling the buttons on the front. If it's under warranty ship it back to Philips; if not markgladding on this site sent me the following advice. Standard disclaimers apply and any questions or comments should go to him.
-------------------------2nd hand advice begins-----------------------------

If you open your monitor you will find a small circuit board with a row of microswitches mounted on it. This is the circuit that's causing the problem.

To open your monitor you will need to remove the stand (one plastic cover that unclips by hand and 4 screws that can be removed with a philips screwdriver). This will then reveal two additional countersunk screws that need to be removed.

You can now remove the front cover. There are 4 clips at the base of the cover that can be removed by hand. You then need to pry the cover off, starting at the corner next to the power button. This is really quite stiff and you need to use a reasonable amount of force. Don't worry about the loud cracking sound as each clip along the side releases.

Once the cover is removed you will see the circuit board with the microswitches staring you in the face.

This board needs to be replaced but if you want to fix the problem immediately here is what I did.

Disclaimer - Proceed at your own risk from here on in.

Plug your monitor back into the power and reconnect to your PC. Make sure it's on and still showing the same problem.

The circuit board unclips and there is a 7 pin connector that also can be unclipped. Remove the board and undo the connector. You don't need to switch off the power.

After the board has been removed for a few seconds, the on screen display that was permanently visible should disappear.

Now I temporarily disabled the malfunctioning button by bending the associated pin on the connector 90 degrees and then reattaching the connector.

How do you know which pin is associated with which button. Trial and error. Simply bend down a pin, and reattach the connector. If the problem persists, unplug and try the next pin.

When you've found the correct pin, straighten the others and reattach the connector.

Clip the circuit board back in, making sure the connecting cable is clear and doesn't get pinched.

Reassemble your monitor and you're good to go.

The next step is to order a new circuit board from Philips. These should be really cheap (I hope) and you now know how to fit it yourself.

Phillips 170B volume adjustment bar automatically pops up


Usually for the volume bar to just pop up something would have pressed the volume button. It is possible that the volume button has gotten a malfuntion on it and this makes it to pop-up all the time. Try getting underneath the volume button cleaned. But preferably this should be done by an expert.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I have an Acer H243H widescreen monitor; it has speakers built in. My problem is that the Volume controls constantly show up on the screen and I am unable to get it to go away and stay gone. The touch...


When this occurs with mine, I power down the PC through windows and the monitor using the lower right power button, let bot sit for 10 - 20 seconds, then power on the PC and switch on the monitor a second or two later and the icon disappears.

Before I did this I found it would eventually disappear.

Acer support claim the H243H is a touchscreen unit, that's what the icon is all about, buy you must have Vista to use it, not XP.

Volume pop up in the middle of my screen


Sounds like one of the front panel buttons is stuck in - possibly the volume down button. If no buttons work, this could be the reason why. Just a guess. If they all feel OK, it may still be worth pulling the back off, (Without electricuting yourself -DISCONNECT POWER!) remove the PCB board that has the buttons on it, and see if it turns on without the menu. If so, check all buttons, rare but I have seen one that looked fine but with a multimeter it showed it wasnt working. If the screen still displays the menu, Id say there is a bigger problem... HTH

"input not supported"


what you may need to do is find an accepted screen resolution, as your screen is 19" widescreen and your notebook will be set for a normal monitor display, so either try the auto button on the screen or look at the properties of your graphics card om the notebook to find supported screen resolutions for extended displays.

LaCie Photo20visionII monitor


Computer seems fine, Cable changed. but still the same. This is to expected, the monitor mounted controls are directed to monitor not part of the data input. Thus suggests a board failure in the Monitor. Just to prove the point if you have the monitor driver installed delete it and run as generic monitor. If things change reinstall the dedicated driver Though I suspect this is a monitor failure not computer related.
