Samsung Syncmaster - 'auto adjustment locked'

When your workplace accumulates random hardware over the years, there aren't always people who know/remember how it works around (or manuals). Someone got this LCD monitor on their desk today, but the mouse would go off the screen, and a few people standing around it couldn't figure out why. So, they replaced her monitor.

The symptom: everything in the menu was locked (except for brightness and contrast), so we couldn't tell which value was the problem.
(probably the Horiz-pos or Vert-pos setting..)
Trying to change anything just said " auto adjustment locked"

The LCD monitor that had been on my desk disappeared... so I took the problematic one,
did a little research, and found the answer
Hold down the menu button for more than 5 seconds with the monitor switched on.
This action enables / disables this feature.
Maybe it's 10 seconds.


It's probably in the manual.

If I put a post-it that says 'Broken' on it, no one will take it...

Auf Deutsche:

ich habe folgendes problem. Wenn ich Einstellungen an meinem Monitor vornehmen will drücke ich auf den MENÜ knopf der sich auf dem Monitor befindet. ( Hoffe ihr versteht was ich meine )
Ich will z.B. das Bild ein wenig nach rechts verschieben, kann es aber nicht, weil die "AUTO" Einstellung angewählt ist. Und da steht nun "Keine Auswahl!".
-------------------------------
So ist jetzt geklärt: Für alle die das gelcihe Problem haben!
Einfach die Menü Taste aufm Monitor ca. 5 sekunden lang gedrückt halten so wird die AUTO FUntkion aktiviert oder deaktiviert(je nachdem)!
Viel spaß damit!
Habe das Problem und die lösung hier gefunden: << this post >>
