Having problems with your Sony CPD G420 19" CRT Monitor ?

I have a Sony G420 CRT monitor which is starting to get too bright. There is a fix for this but in order to carry this out I first need to 'unlock' the control panel on the front of the monitor. For some reason the 'picture effect' button is unresponsive, while depressing the 'menu' button only gives me the manufacturer's date. My initial thought was to look for a firmware upgrade, but as I am on a Mac I am unable to find a suitable installer. Has anybody else struck this issue?
