Re #2
Unlikely - mechanical (toggle) buttons are not usually used on monitors.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

What do you mean by 'pop'? Do you mean the contrast box 'pops' up on the screen or does one of the adjusting buttons pop out?

Check the manual for the monitor and see what it says about the OSD.

Well that's no fun. You forego the satisfaction of figuring out what the problem is. Now it's taunting you. Can you hear it? "Ha ha, you can't fix me. I'm smarter than you are."

(Whoa, it must be bedtime.)

it turns off after 1 sec when its on. i saw it turns off when the brightness went normal so full open. i cant change it because the monitor goes off and it will just go away. the button is stil green.
any fix or any way to lower the brightness?

We can't answer detailed questions unless you give us the make and model number of the monitor (they are all different).

Is there any way you can try the new monitor on another computer - you could be unlucky and have another faulty one. Alternatively maybe you could try someone else's monitor on your computer.

Where do you get these monitors? Is some guy selling them out of the back of his van?

Is it a CRT monitor? If the screen is getting bright and then blanking out it might be a problem with the flyback transformer. That's something only a shop should fix.

DAVE
Mostly fade out on increasing brightness with CRT monitors is the EHT rectifier failing (EHT voltage falls under load - rectifier drops voltage). Same thing tho, not by any means a DIY job - dangerous area.

Are they LCD monitors or old CRT ones?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

they are LCD monitors, they are from a store called PC twins. x223hq is the model number from acer.
i use my old monitor from benQ now it works perfect. i havent tried to plug it onto another pc cuz i have only 2 laptops and they have only HDMI port.

So the original monitor you posted about--the one with the contrast box coming up--now works OK? You should probably take the second one back then. I don't think it's going to get fixed.

If any monitor works perfectly then the ones that don't must be either defective (probably) or in some way unsuitable or not set up right. With most monitors, without any drivers or software at all, they will just work. For this reason I think that most likely you have run into some dud monitors. Coincidence sometimes happens.
