Having problems with your Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor ?

The brightness/contrast menu keeps popping up and scrolling through the exit, brightness and contrast options. It is a Dell E173FP monitor. I have tried disconnecting and reconnecting the cables and powering off the base unit (with all cables disconnected) and the booting back up but no luck! Can anyone offer advise or will we have to buy a new monitor? Thanks


Answers :

Try pushing the buttons for the brightness if it does the same thing you need to replace it, the buttons might be damaged already by pushing too hard or it got stuck.
If this is just a new LCD monitor about 1 to 2 years old contact tech support of dell so you can get this replaced.
