Dont take apart the monitor!?!?! Hold the Menu button for about 15 seconds, the manual said 10 but i found by holding menu for 15 seconds it removes the OSD lockout.

Hello everybody,

I know how to fix this, but it involves opening up the monitor....

First unplug the monitor and get all the cables out. Then get the monitor of its monitor stand, this is done by unscrewing the four screws at the back of the monitor stand.

Now you can pry open the case with a flat screwdriver. On the inside you see a small electronic board with the power switch and the other switches on it. These 'broken' or dirty switches are what causing the OSD lockout.
Get the small board out of it's bracket and use some ETHANOL or ALCOHOL (atleast 70% pure) to clean the switches, you just spray or drip the ethanol into/onto the switches. This will clean the switches of any grease residu. Then spray the switches with air out of an airspray can untill they are totally dry.
Now you can put everything together and voila! it is working again!! atleast it worked for me :):)

This fix will only work if the switches aren't broken but only dirty or a little bit stuck, if they are broken then you would have to solder new ones on the electronic switch board.

Good Luck!

I find the only soluion for the OSD lockout message is to hold the power button down after it has been lit. I use a bulldog clip to do that. I think it is a crude way of doing this. But it helps in my case.

Bought a new computer and it just has a usb type port how do I connect the moniter


Depends on the monitor does the monitor have a hdmi input port ?
The usb type port you describe - I suspect is a HDMI port.
The monitor I am guessing has a vga only input
as you did not provide us with the make and model numbers of any of your devices involved I can only guess on the situation ?

You might be able to go to a computer retailer and ask them about a HDMI to VGA adapter for your monitor if this is the situation you have

Button keeps blinking


It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service
