How do i adjust the monitor screen on a AOC TFT monitor?

I'm looking to brighten DVD's when i play them, at the moment, everything looks very dark and there are no controls, that i can see, on the monitor itself.

There's usually a few buttons on them somewhere to bring up an on-screen menu....

Why not simply use the controls on the video player you're using?
For example on Windows Media Player right click and choose Enhancements>Video Settings as per attached screenshot.
That way you don't have to adjust the monitor settings again when you go back to normal PC use.

All video playing software has similar adjustments available

If you wish to adjust the monitor brightness/contrast - but I think my suggestion above is more practical as it's only DVD playback you mention - then if the monitor is anything like the one in the manual linked below the controls are hidden underneath the screen.

Thanks for your replies. I lost track of where my post was.
When a DVD is on, the screen is v. dark.
There are no controls on the monitor.
I've looked at "Play DVD Windows Media Player" -there are no controls for brightness that i can see.

I am a computer learner.

The monitor is from chillblast. No literature came with the monitor. The basic specification sheet for the PC and monitor reads:
21.5" AOC Widescreen TFT monitor.

There is a CD for the monitor that leaves me more baffled, given that no method of controlling the screen is indicated. See below:




The AOC F22+ user guide i-menu software CD

The manual is on that CD. Probably as a pdf file for which you may need to download and install Adobe Reader to access, if it wasn't pre-installed on your PC.

This is from a review of the F22+ found online
Instead of the usual Menu, Select and navigation buttons, the F22+ uses a single button with a directional ring around it, which also acts as the power button. A single short press brings up the menu, selects the current item and goes back to the menu, which can be confusing, but it works well enough in practice. The menu system is quite comprehensive: as well as standard brightness and contrast, you can change gamma levels and turn on dynamic contrast, although we found this caused sharp changes in brightness that were distracting.

The adjustments on Windows Media Player are exactly as I described earlier.
To clarify - right click anywhere on WMP whilst it is playing the DVD.
More help here http://grok.lsu.edu/article.aspx?articleid=5248

By adjusting the controls on WMP only and not the monitor (which you seem happy with on normal PC use) you haven't got to re-adjust the monitor when you've finished watching the DVD

Another example with VLC player http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html

Click on Tools>Effects and filters>Video effects (tick Enable)
