I have the same problem, mostly when the monitor is cold. I found a work-around tho. You bring up the menu, scroll through the options and select "memory". hit that it it does a memory reset, take about 3 seconds. After that, my monitor works perfectly. One time the power button stopped working and I had to unplug to turn the monitor off but it didn't do this for the last two days. Best of luck.

Volume control screen


You can try Malwarebytes free for malware.
Also if you carefull you can type msconfig in search bar in windows and click on msconfig. In the pop up. In startup menu, stop any reference to" Lautstarke" and also in services. Make sure you click on hide all microsoft services on bottom in services before starting. Do not untick any service you are not sure of. Google first.
Startups I always disable. Cannot do any harm there.

Font to big


to use another type of font look into:

start -> settings -> control panel -> Fonts

other solution is to adjust your display to use another higher resolution:

right click on empty space on the screen and select property
a window title "display property" should pop out
select the tab "setting"
on the middle of the left side there is a bar for increasing / decreasing
the resolution

hope it helps

My SAMTRON monitor 56V is having a problem now..
The control menu of monitor settings which will appear
when the monitor control panel is pressed(Brightness,Contrast....) is coming frequently at my monitor without activation...
Now when the monitor is turned on, the control panel will come,and will not go even if we change the settings..
The control panel is switching between the CONTROL LOCK and UNLOCKED mode during each 5 seconds....So now I cant see anything on my screen
at the middle of the screen due to this overlaying settings panel.
I is giving the same effect as the Menu key is pressed in the panel..(exit,-,+,Menu).
This problem started some 2-3 months before..
Today I hav put some etylene cleaning solution through the gaps to clean from dust... still no change...
If somebody having a remedy please help me..

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?

Black Bars each side of my new monitor wide screen


Right Click on an open spot on your desktop.

If your Operating System is Windows XP, choose Properties from the menu box that pops up when you right click.

A new window will open up. Click the Settings tab at the top right.
On this menu you should see a slider bar near the bottom left under "Screen Resolution". Left Click and hold the mouse button on the grey button and move it on the slider bar over to the right one spot. Then click the Apply button on the bottom right of the box. The screen may flicker for a second and your desktop will change size. If the screen covers the whole monitor and the black bars are gone, that may be the correct resolution. Click OK on the box that has a timer and is asking if you want to keep the screen that size. If the screen does not look correct, click No and you may need to slide the button one more spot over and try the next resolution and Apply until it looks correct.

Under the slider bar as you move it over a line at a time will be 2 numbers like this 1024 X 800, and when you move the bar over the numbers will change. I believe the optimal resolution setting numbers for the 20" monitor you have should be 1680 X 1050 for the widescreen. You may want to try that setting. If it looks too small, try sliding the bar to the left and try each resolution setting.

Here's a screetshot of what the Box with the slider bar looks like: http://technophobik.co.uk/vxp_control_panel/f007_settings.asp

If you have Windows Vista, (it is similiar to XP):

Click the Start Button and click Control Panel in the Start Menu
Click Appearance and Personalization in the new window that opens up.
Click Personalization, then click Display Settings at the bottom
A new box will pop up with the grey button on a slider bar near the bottom left under "Resolution" Slide the button to the right to the next line one spot over on the slider bar and then click the Apply button. The screen may flicker and change the size of your desktop. Click OK if the screen looks correct or click No if it doesn't look correct and try sliding the button over one more line.

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

Control locked


try pressing the buttons (with your monitor turned off) if they have allowances for switching (if it is a push button then each should be pressed slightly and you should feel that it switches through!) if you pressed it and felt hard ( like something was stuck) then the buttons might have misalligned from the switches on the board. do not open your monitor unless you have electronic servicing experience. other causes might be the monitor's sync. processing IC. it could be defective.
