Smartimage problem on screen

I have a Philips LCD 220CW monitor that has a vertical line 'scanning' back and forth. On the bottom left it says Smartimage ON and on the bottom right it says Smartimage off. How do I make this stop?

    thanks a lot. I would also like to share that if you have the message monitor controls locked message on the screen then you need to connect the pc and keep the right most button pressed for about 10 seconds.

I had the same problem with my screen. left button on screen worked to stop it.
it seems as if this kind of screen is very sensitiv on cellphone waves.
if my nokia is close to the screen the screen starts to setup different things for itself.

Smart image on philips lcd on screen

Dont Buy Philips monitor. I have 20 pcs monitor and after one year half of them had malfunction. smartimage with vertical lines back and forth and that all controls are locked that cant be unlock by holding any button. Some had white screen when Resolution exceed 1024X768 (when 1280X768) after a year.

Maybe they program it to malfunction after a year. My CDR king and AOC monitor had no problem 2yrs to present date.
