Recently, my monitor's on-screen controls menu has started to pop up at seemingly random intervals. The monitor is several years old. It used to work normally.

This is a Decaview V382 crt monitor. The controls are normally nvoked from a central wheel-button at the bottom of the monitor. Turning the wheel scrolls through the menu.

Sounds like either failing circuitry or a possible lint build up in the switch button/wheel.

You can address the latter by blowing out the button/wheel area with "canned air".

Maybe it's time to treat yourself to a new Monitor! :D

Thanks. Your response might be just the little bit of extra encouragement we've been needing to treat ourselves to a new monitor.

Stephen,

You should never need a reason to treat yourself to a new toy! :D
