Question about Computer Monitors
The warning on new HP w2007v monitor reads thus: HP My Display has encountered a problem and needs to close.
Further info includes error code 00005c56 App name:dthtml.exe
This warning appears each time I boot up. Can you help, please?
Check the capacitors on the power supply board inside the monitor. They malfunction, heat up, leak or pop and stop doing what they are designed to do, smooth out the power supply to the inverter and display board. You can replace these simply by buying the correct farrad, voltage and temperature rated replacements online for about .30 a piece or go to radio shack and spend 1.50 a piece. You can use a higher voltage like 35V instead of 25V but try and get the 105c rated ones to last longer in the hot P/S environment. My bad ones were 470 micro farrad, 25V and 105c rated and I had 4 out of 8 pop or bulge.

Check that the signal cable from the computer is firmly connected and that there are no bent pins in either end. If the trouble continues, the problem is in the monitor itself. Given the low replacement cost, it's uneconomical to try repairing these.

If the power light does not turn color and stay's green on startup, it is not a power problem. It is most likely the inverter. If the unit is in warranty, send it out ASAP. Contact HP customer care by email and have the issue logged in.
If in warranty, they will send you a box by FedX second day and have repaired.
This is a 19" monitor and will not be worth paying for repairs if not in warranty.

monitor, osd lockout Posted in Fixes ' Comments (32)
This has most likely annoyed many of you at some point. You turn on your monitor one day and see a jeering message telling you something about an "OSD Lockout". It doesn't allow you to change any of your monitors settings, including the setting intended to turn off this message. While I've only seen this error on HP monitors I know that others have encountered it on other brands as well. The fixes I provide should work on those monitors too. (Note: OSD stands for On Screen Display.)
Fix One: Plug in the monitor and power it up. Hold down the Power button until you get a message saying "OSD Unlocked". If the problem persists after OSD is unlocked then unplug the monitor from the wall, wait 20 seconds and try again.
Fix Two: Turn on the monitor and hold down the Menu button for 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
Fix Three: Turn off the monitor, press down the Menu button and then turn on the monitor. Wait 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
Fix Four: The Menu button may be stuck in a pressed in position. To get it "unstuck" you'll usually need to open up the monitor. This could be tricky unless you know what you're doing. Unfortunately there are too many models of monitor for me to provide detailed instructions. If you have warranty this is where you want to contact the manufacturer.
If you know of any other fixes feel free to contact me. Good luck!
