    I've been getting the same error since I installed my new monitor, HP w2448hc. I took both my monitor & tower into computer store to get the error fixed. The tech said it was because I used the disk that came with the monitor when installing it. That I should have left Windows find what it needed without that disk. He couldn't fix it.

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.

Starting the PC have got error on HP 1730 Monitor error message, OSD Lock out. Can you please tell me how to solve this issue?

How to Unlock an "OSD Lockout" Problem

smilie-tag.png monitor, osd lockout folder-category.pngPosted in Fixes ' Comments (32)
osdlockout.jpg 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!

Menu buttons

My HP w2408 monitor. I just fixed this issue about 5 mins ago after getting tierd of whacking the buttons with anything handy. There are 2 slots on the underside of the monitor, in between the black frame and silver outer frame. Stick a flat screw driver and use a motion as if to literally pull the black frame away from the monitor. Use caution and dont stick the screw driver too far in. You will hear it pop. Do the same to the other side. There are multiple tabs arond the frame including one in the bottom center. Keep pulling on the free ends of the frame till all the tabs come off. Now you will see the buttom assembly, disconnect the small white connector from the montior. If you dont care for the buttons, which if you have a w2408 or any such model you will never use (auto detects input and auto adjusts) then just pop the frame back on. If you want to go further remove the 2 screws on the button assembly pull down on the silver frame to remove the button assembly. I did not go further then this but i read somewhere that if you wash the assembly in some liquid it will work again. I am guessing some good acohol from walgreens will do. For me I am just glad the message when away.

The screen is black but there is power and the blue light is on

neh4k, If you KNOW pc is ok, then go visit this web blog to see if you have same type problem with CCFL inverter board inside monitor. It may be that the unit will need to be refurbished. Lots of info on web and at YOUTUBE (DIY video clips) ALL CCFL-backlit lcd monitors are of same basic design and operation. You and only you will determine final disposition of your unit. Have you done "flashlight" test to see if unit capable of "faint image display" on the glass lcd panel? Read fixya profiles of "budmrtn" , "buddymc" and "12fixlouie" for more info and follow links you find there. 12fixlouie

kkjsr00, You must narrow down the faulty component!!! You must prove what is working and what is not working!! Beg, borrow, steal a "known-good" monitor to prove your pc is operating perfectly and will display the WIN-desktop screen on it. If your pc is A-ok then visit this web blog: kkjsr00, when strange and weird stuff starts to appear on the screen of "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" back-lit lcd displays the first place I would look at would be the units internal "switch-mode-power-supply/ccfl inverter supply".. No, No, No, unit not going to sleep!!! SMPS/inverter going into SHUTDOWN mode having detected a fault condition with itself or other circuit and is trying to save itself from catastrophic, nonrecoverable failure. e.g. smoke, fire, burn down house, etc. Do some reading in my profile and those of other fixya tech's and you will find more than enough info to help with your problem. Good luck with repair of "flakey" solder joint or bad electrolytic filter capacitor PLAGUE problem. Yes, you sure have a lot of reading to do!! 12fixlouie or old file is louie12fix also try "buddymc" , "budmrtn" profiles for more info.

My hpw2207h monitor went blank and I have tried moving the mouse and also tapping keys on the keyboard to try and get it out of sleep mode

dantedarby30, Unit may not be in "sleep or hibernate mode"!!! You did not mention date of manufacture from label on rear cover of unit. Your monitor's symptom not new one and occurs very often. If HP warranty valid I say use it first. If not, then you should at least visit this web blog to see if anything seems familiar. Do some reading there and then do some reading in my fixya profile higher number pages (16 and up) for more options. And if that isn't enough you might try to get into my old fixya profile (louie12fix) for older stuff. Follow the links to other web sites for more information. please do an additional comment to original so I know you were able to find all the info you need. 12fixlouie

This is an internal problem with the LCD monitor. It is defective and should be returned to the store your purchased it from for a new one. That is the only thing I can really think of if it is not reading properly with a seperate graphics card. It is an internal issue and needs to be repaired.
