Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 720N Monitor ?

The brightness menu screen is stuck on!

\015 I have left it off for some time and nothing! it has random moments where it will start flicking through the menu screen and then stop. any kind of solution would be amazing pelase! the syncMaster 720n is locked with the brightness on...have you found a solution?\015

Answers :

Please try to turn the monitor off. Hold down the Menu button while the monitor is turned off, then press the Power button again to turn the monitor back on. This should unlock your OSD menu from your screen. regards
My solution for this problem was to just unscrew the 4 leg screws and the 2 in the botton. Then with a card, such as a creditcard or a swipe card of some sorts just carefully take off the black (or in my case silver) front plate and just take out the circuit board that controls the buttons. Then carefully put back on the frontplate, put the screws back in, and it'll work. The only problem you create is that you don't have a power button anymore, but you can obviously solve that with taking out the power plug.

The menu that controls contrast, brightness ect is stuck on the menu and when i push the number 1 button on he monitor it does nothing but lock the osd. If i hit the down button the contrast will move down then return to full contrast. None of the buttons appear to be jammed and all seem to push and release fairly easily. I have tried upluging the monitor and letting it sit and replugging and that had not worked either any help on how to fix this would be great.


Try pressing the number 1 again. It should exit the OSD. While the screen is stuck with the OSD. Press the power button (blue) and push to turn it on again.Hope this helps. ... ViewSonic VX924 19" LCD Monitor
