LaCie Photo20visionII monitor

The monitor controls on the panel at bottom of the unit are not working (except for brightness adjust). When I select menu and source a box appears on screen saying "Digital Video Input No Access". i tried a different computer but ghad same problem. tried a new DVD cable from monitor to computer but no change in problem. Using abobe gamma I can see that the monitor c olor control and contrast do work but apparently can't the softwaredoes not allow me to adjust the monitor from the control pannel. Why? I have a Dual 2.3 GHz Power PC G5 computer with OS10.4.3. I want to use the Spyder Pro to profile the monitor but can't make adjustments to the monitor. Please help!

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.

    If La Cie Says there should be one - and you are sure there was no CD in the box-Are you really sure- was it thrown out with the packaging in your eagerness?
    And they have no download available - all you can do is to take it up with the Tech Support at La Cie
    If they say you have to have one - then its part of the parcel and it should be there.

    Well as the monitor is working[sort of] a generic one has been loaded automatically.

    If you go to Control Panel/Hardware Manager/Monitor/Display devices click on driver and then update- you will be asked - Wheres the CD then?
    You have not got it so you select - select from list.
    Scroll down all the makes until you get to La Cie[if it is there] Click on it then scroll until you find the model that is yours.
    Click on OK or Install[what ever comes up]
    Then when done - Re start the computer.

The control buttons are located at front panel of the monitor. The Brightness Button is used to select the Brightness/Contrast adjust functions. Press to switch functions or adjust settings.

Why can't I control the brightness or contrast on my Viewsonic monitor?

Look to see if there is an "auto" setting, this would override the manual settings.

I cannot increase scree brightness of my HP PROBOOK 4440s Also tried by getting in to power option in control pannel and moved the slider... even then there is no change in brightness

Go to the system tray in the lower right bottom of your screen and click on the "plug and battery" icon. Left click on it and you will see a link to "Adjust Brightness" towards the bottom of the menu.

AND ALSO Go to control panel. choose display. Click on "adjust brightness". You find " Select a power plan". You can increase brightness at the bottom of the screen. it's work for me.

What is OSD ?

OSD means "On-Screen Display. It is a control panel on a television set or computer monitor. It allows you to select viewing options or actually adjust components on the display such as contrast, brightness, vertical and horizntal positions.

For computer monitors, it is usually activated by buttons on the bottom or side of the monitor.

On the television set, it is usually activated either though buttons on the set or via the remote control.

Can not access PC Brightness or PC Contrast - only X Contrast

From p.29 of the manual

"Brightness, Contrast, Sharpness, Color, and Tint are only available for adjustments
if you select User in Picture Mode.
Press / on the remote control or VOL+/ VOL- on the control panel to adjust these settings."

Cannot change the brightness

to adjust brightness levels you might want to modify ONLY the brightness, contrast and gamma settings. Others might mess up your colors or god knows what. You can also set up the GPU's brightness settings by going to the gpu's control panel, usually opened by right clicking the desktop and selecting your video card's control panel option. Then adjust the brightness, contrast and gamma options to suit your needs. Hope that helps!

Where do you adjust the brightness and volume

one button opens the control panel the other lets you move your options the other one lets you select mave it to brightness and or contrast select it and there we go
