Question about Televison & Video
Sounds like you may have pressed the RECALL button on the remote. This restores the monitor to the factory default settings.
I would suggest disconnecting the power supply for a few minutes then reconnect the supply and switch on the monitor and whichever external video device (DVD, PC. cable/sat receiver, etc) you are using as the source for the monitor. Next, open the fold-down front panel on the monitor and press the INPUT button repeatedly until you see the picture from the external source on the screen.
The flip down panel is next to the power button/LED on the front of the monitor. To open the panel, push it in the centre and it will pop open.
If the TV is still stuck on the screen you described, try the MENU +/- buttons on both the remote and the front of the monitor and the DISPLAY button on the remote.
If the monitor does not respond to any of the above, this would indicate a hardware/component failure in the motherboard. Please try this then let me know if you need further assistance by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question.
Does the monitor respond to the MENU +/- or DISPLAY buttons after the power has been disconnected?
