My F22 monitor had been appear OSD locked and i don't know how to solve it. Some buddy please help me!!!


important notes
1. what is displayed on the monitor comes from the system unit
2. possible features that could be displayed on the monitor are screen savers or splash screens
3. attempting to log on a computer with a screen saver passcode could lock the system by displaying the word locked requiring unlocking

procedure of unlocking a passcode
1.Once the system locks, would require to reset the password.
2. another function could be displayed on next to the lock icon prompting unlock or reset
3. in the absence of a display of unlocking the password, continue to enter the wrong password and hiting the logon button in a space provided next to the unlock icon prompt
4. severall attempts would prompt for a reset functionality.
5. at which instance would display a password hint of what has been locked.
6. the password hint provided must be guessed correctly to allow a reset functionality.
7. once hint provided allows for reset would prompt the user to create a new password
8. create a password with a hint as a key to reseting any future locked screens.
9. the screen could be operated without a password for an alternative, only made possible during after unlocking the locked screen. instead of creating a new password and hint, choose to disable screen savers altogether.

OSD LOCK


Normally the OSD lock will only be displayed for 5 seconds.
Regardless you should be able to get rid of it by pressing holding the up arrow key for 10 seconds.
If this fails to resolve the issue try this. Disconnect power cord. Now press and hold button 1. Plug the power cord back in. You may have to press the power button while still holding button 1. The OSD lock should clear after that.
Hope this helps.

Want to unlock my monitor


This is the function that locks the OSD in order to keep the current states of
settings or prevent others from adjusting the current settings.

1. Lock : Hold down the menu button for more than five seconds to activate
the OSD adjustment lock function.

2. Unlock : Hold down the menu button for more than five seconds to
deactivate the OSD adjustment lock function.

Though the OSD adjustment lock function is activated, you can still
adjust the brightness and contrast, and adjust MagicBright ( )
using the Direct button.
