Sounds like your OSD is locked. Press and hold the "OK" button for 10 seconds or so and it should unlock.

My monitor says the OSD is locked I can't unlock it


Hi,

The OSD can be enabled or disabled by pressing and holding the Menu button on the front panel for 10 seconds. If the OSD is locked, the warning message OSD Lock displays for ten seconds.
  • If the OSD is locked, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds to unlock the OSD.
  • If the OSD is unlocked, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds to lock the OSD

Or else you can try this method also, Hold the menu/ok button for ten seconds, to unlock the OSD. If this doesn't solve the problem, then it's probably the button that got stuck. Remove the casing, locate the menu button's contact switch on the circuit board, and try to release it using something thin like a screwdriver, x-acto knife, or set of plyers.If this doesn't work, chances are the menu button is stuck on a loop, sending a continuous signal to the board (which keeps locking/unlocking the OSD).
If so, your only solution (other than take it to a repair shop) is to remove it, by prying it off with a screwdriver or set of plyers. Of course, you'll lose access to the OSD features, but I guess this is better than to have a message stuck on front of your screen all the time..

The button on the front has functions but when I press either the left hand side or the right hand side it just comes up with a message ''OSD Locked'' What does this mean


OSD Locked means that your On Screen Display is locked. That basically means you can't access/change the menu settings. The way to unlock the OSD varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and even monitor to monitor. Here are a couple different ways to unlock it:

1) The OSD can be enabled or disabled by pressing and holding the Menu button on the front panel for 10 seconds. If the OSD is locked, the warning message OSD Lock displays for ten seconds.

* If the OSD is locked, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds to unlock the OSD.
* If the OSD is unlocked, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds to lock the OSD.

OR

2) Go to Menu and select OSD settings and change the setting for the OSD Lock. For example if it is a "+" then make it a "-" or a "On", then make it an "Off", or an "Enable" then make it a "Disable".

If neither of these work, I would contact customer support for your monitor from the manufacturer. They should be able to tell you how to turn off the OSD Lock.

Hope that helps. Good luck!

My computer screen has a blue box that pops up and say "Controls locked". I am assuming that the buttons on the bottom right hand corner of my moniter is what it is talking about because when I hit the...


This is from the user manual for the monitor. You can download a copy from hp here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=324216&os=228&lang=en&

Click on the "monitor user's guide" link to download.

There are four adjustable options on the OSD settings screen: Lock OSD settings, Timeout, H Position, and V Position.
To change OSD settings:
1 Open the OSD setting screen under the Advanced menu. See
“Using the On Screen Display” on page 25.
2 Press the Browse buttons to select the option you want to adjust.
3 Press the Select button to check the option.
To change OSD lock setting:
1 Press the Browse button to select yes (lock) or no (unlock). The
setting is automatically saved when you change the value.
2 Choose Exit sub-menu and press the Select button to return to
the OSD Main Menu or press the Menu button to exit OSD.
NOTE: Once OSD is locked, all OSD functions including the
shortcut buttons are disabled. If OSD is locked, pressing
any button on the monitor directly opens the Lock OSD
settings window so that you can unlock OSD.
