I've looked every where for a possible solution to my problems and am hoping to find some help Here. My Area had a Power Surge Yesterday. The Power went out came back on for about half a second and then was out for 2 hours. Since then It seems that the Brightness and contrast on my 19" Envision LCD G917w1 Computer Monitor are Jack up to high so everything looks like its a Very Gery tint to it and anything with a White background is Impossible to read. If that doesn't make things bad then how about not only has that happened but now the monitor is in Spanish and when I hit the buttons to bring up the Menu overlayl to change the Contrast and Brightness nothing happens but when I hit the Menu button and one of the up or down arrows a bar comes up with some Spanish text like its doing something I hold the buttons down and when it finishes nothing happens. Right now I'm forced to use my 44" LG TV with HDMI but can't us it on a regular basis cause the Wife will get pissed. Any help would be greatly Appreciated.

There are only two possibilities: replace it or fix it, and you do seem to have figured it out for yourself - the only way to find out what is wrong with a faulty monitor is to open it up and look. You can either try it yourself, or pay someone else to do it. Paying a professional is likely to be uneconomic in comparison with simply buying a replacement.
