Just recieved my new monitor off trademe, and it's great, but i need a bit of help.


The stand it is on currently has the monitor far too high. Normally these would slide down (school had identical monitors) but it seems stiff on this. Is there a way to push it down to a more acceptable level of viewing.

Also, how to I adjust the color etc.. on this as the buttons on the front are very basic.

thanks.

What did you mean that the web site was no help.

There is a manual 100 odd pages there. Did you download same?

I cannot view PDF's, as i do not have Adobe Reader, as it's bloated, and i am unsure of a good alternative.

The manual is useless, just had a look.

With this monitor, it's basically meant to slide down to a more suitable height, but it seems to be stuck.

According to the manual, it has a swivel type height adjustment -- its basically a up and down -- look at the picture -- its easy to work out. ;)

3486

As for the color -- RTFM :p Its all there, including how to make several adjustments Via the software you can install for the display.

See, that picture is different to the monitor. But It is the same Model number exactly. I'll try to take a picture of mine shortly.

It's feet are in a V shape. It has a USB on the left side, and the bit holding it up is a dark grey ovalish plastic poll, which it is meant to slide up and down on.

Edit: here's a picture of it: http://img.dooyoo.co.uk/GB_EN/orig/0/4/5/8/8/458802.jpg almost identical except the color of the bit that it moves up and down on.

I can swivel it left and right, tilt it etc, but can not lower the height of it. it seems to be stuck.

I think you're out of luck unless you can get it to move, try some CRC or something. Other options are to grow taller, sit on a cushion, or lower chair height.

Theres half your problem, you have the wrong monitor, the model number is incorrect.

Try 170B7CS (http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=170B7CS/27&scy=us&slg=en) Its more closer to it. All manuals and pictures of the 170B6CS dont look anything like teh one you linked.

The quick start Guide on that page shows how to adjust the height, and as before the full manual tells you how to adjust color etc.

It would also help if you quoted the actual correct monitor!

Sigh!!!

I assume your monitor problems are now solved then?
