From last few days I am facing a different problem. I am using a HP m705 Monitor. Normally Every monitor has a button to adjust its' brightness, color, view, etc. And after pressing the button on the monitor the menu is displayed on the screen.
but that menu of monitor options is continuously flashing on the screen. So, I am not able to view the center of screen. I want to know what might be the problem and how to solve it? (I hope you understand what I mean to say.)

The m705 should have a long PCA board behind the front bezel plastic on the lower front portion of the monitor. The PCA has little buttons that stick out next to the back of the buttons that you press on the front of the monitor. Over time, if dirt gets between the buttons or the plasic or PCA warps a little, or simply age, you can end up with a sticky button. That is, a button is stuck in the on position - thus bringing up an OSD continuously.
I don't have this exact laying around but if you can't solve it by pushing on the sticky button on the front of the panel. You can usually fix by removing the front plastic bezel and gently cleaning the smaller sticky buttons on the PCA with a Q-tip dampened with isopropyl alcohol or elctronics cleaner. I do not recommend doing this yourself as the CRT is charged and very dangerous. If you do attempt it, stay away from the anode tip - the thick wire that runs up to the top back of the CRT.
Please post rather than send me a message. It's good for the community and I might not be able to get back quickly. - Thank you.

My problem is solved!
There is a manufacturing defect in these monitors (which only cause problems after the warrenty period 🙂 ).
There is chip behind these settings buttons. You need to got to a repair shop (HP authorised preferred because they know the problem) and change that chip. It only costs 200 to 300 Rs. No Need to change the monitor. I cahnged the chip and it's working fine now.
Plese reply if your problem is solved!
