Question about HP Pavilion F1503 15" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

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 Menu button, to change the color or contrast, the box comes up again and says that the controls are locked. how do I unlock them in order to get rid of the box that says "Controls Locked"?

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.
