osd locked


On some display devices, there is an OSD Lock that locks all current control settings and prevents access to the control menus until this mode is unlocked.

The method for unlocking the OSD is different for different monitors, but will be one of the 2 below. If the first method doesn't work, try the second.

Method 1: Press and hold both the [1] button on the front of the monitor and the down arrow button for 10 seconds.

Method 2: Press and hold both the [1] button on the front of the monitor and the up arrow button for 10 seconds.

Note: These same buttons, when pressed for another 10 seconds, will lock the OSD.
