Question about LG Flatron F700P 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

OSD doesn't appear

When I am in high refresh rates,for example, above 70 hrz. After pressing the menu button the osd doesn't apear on the screen. But the functionality is still there. I mean when I use my memory and change through the options all of them work fine. On lower refresh rates, for example, 60 hrz. after pressing the menu button the screen gets unstable. as it's obvious those horizantal lines are the osd. I see them white and when I move on the options of the osd.I can notice the blue hightlights. when my monitor was fully healthy. after setting my graphic card on refresh rates that the monitor couldn't support a dialog box message were on screen indicating the unsupported refresh rates. now that this problem arised the dialog box doesn't apear. on 60 hz that I bring osd on screen the lines are as big as the monitor. I mean the horizantal white line blinking on screen . are as wide as the monitor width. but as we know a healthy osd is quite little at the center of monitor even in low resolution. By the way, everything else about my monitor is quite fine. Actually I am thinking not to touch it and continue using it,since it's fine. but I am worried if this lead into any other serious problem.So my second question is what can happen if I don't try to fix this osd issue. As i said my monitor screen is quite fine. correct colors, sharp images without any moire. please remember that I have two different question on this problem. Thank you very much.

    Well, I am thinking the same ,too. I don't want try repairing it.

    And something else. I think my problem is not related to the drivers at all. The OSD menu is something from the monitor itself. It doesn't have any relationship with the drivers. Even if you are on a 80x25 terminal it should apear correctly. Even if you are on the first page after you turn on the computer (when the bootstrap process is running) the osd should apear.

    Even if you are still running MS-DOS it should apear correctly.

    I am sure that it doesn't have any relationship with the Graphic card and its drivers or monitor drivers.

    Well, I wish I was also a hardware or electronic expert , so I could comment on the first thing you said. How can you be sure that for example by this error an IC is not under pressure and sooner or later it will end up its life and cause me to pay much for the repair.


    And I also believe that the solution of this problem is something like this : open up the monitor and find the ic (or some other parts) named 893039xi3 and then replace it with this or that or close mach with this or that number.

    By the way, I tried something for fixing this.As I said although the osd doesn't apear well it's possible to change the settings based on my memory. I tried to reset the monitor memory to the factory defualt but I wasn't successfull on this. I think there are some yes or no questions or something that i can't see. I also used the "DEGAUSS" option .But didn't work as I guessed. That's for just the wrong coloring or imaged based on static electracity.

    At the end I have to say thank you so much Tim.

You will find the number one motto from many of the Tech's is "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!!" If you must fix it try the latest drivers for your video card and for the monitor. The OS(XP) is always changing. Keep the drivers up to date. Otherwise. Don't mess with it. Good Luck, Let me know what happens. Tim

Monitor display says OSD Lockout /no signal input how to fix this?


This document pertains to LCD monitors .
One of the following messages appears on the screen (over the items being displayed).
OSD Lockout
OSD Lock-out
... or similar message.
This message occurs when the Menu button on the front panel is pressed for more than 10 seconds. OSD lockout prevents the OSD menu from opening on the screen when a button is accidentally pressed.
NOTE: The button may be different and the procedure might vary on some monitors. Please check your monitor User Guide to find the exact procedure if this procedure does not work.
To remove the OSD Lockout message, release the Menu button (if something was pressing against it), and press and hold the Menu button again for about 10 seconds - until the message goes away. If the OSD Lockout message does not go away, the button may be stuck or the hardware behind the button might have become defective.

"OSD LOCKED" box on my screen


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.



OSD stands for "On Screen Display." It is an onscreen configuration menu included with various monitors. When you press the MENU button or one of the other buttons on the front or side of a monitor, the onscreen display may appear. The OSD typically includes monitor calibration options, such as brightness, contrast, and color adjustments. Some OSDs may also include horizontal and vertical position controls as well as tilt and keystone adjustments.
If you can't make adjustments to the monitor settings using the OSD interface, the onscreen display may be locked. You may also see the phrase "OSD Locked" appear when you try to change the settings. Some monitors include an option within the menu called "OSD Lock", which you can turn on or off. If this option is available, simply turn OSD Lock off and you will be able to make adjustments to the settings.
If your monitor does not include the "OSD Lock" option, you may be able to unlock the OSD by pressing and holding the MENU button on the front or side of the monitor for several seconds. If you try this method, be patient! It may take up to 15 seconds for the OSD to unlock.

How to get rid of osd lock which appears frequently on screen?


Hold the MENU button for ten seconds to unlock or lock the OSD.

This information is from your manual for the L194WT:
OSD LOCKED/UNLOCKED
This function allows you to lock the current control settings, so that they cannot be inadvertently changed. Press and hold the MENU button for several seconds. The message "OSD LOCKED" should appear. You can unlock the OSD controls at any time by pushing the MENU button for several seconds. The message "OSD UNLOCKED" should appear.

Locking OSD settings
When the OSD is locked, settings cannot be changed in the OSD menu. The OSD functionality is enabled or disabled by pressing the Menu button and holding it for 10 seconds. Upon disabling the OSD, an OSD Lock-out message is displayed for 10 seconds. When the OSD is locked and an OSD menu button is pressed, the OSD Lock-out message is displayed for an additional 10 seconds. When the OSD is locked, pressing the OSD menu button for 10 seconds unlocks the OSD and displays the main menu. Identifying monitor conditions
Special messages display on the monitor screen for the following monitor conditions:
  • Input Signal Out of Range : Indicates the monitor does not support the input signal because the resolution and/or refresh rate are set higher than the monitor supports. Recommended refresh rates are as follows:
    • For the w1858 monitor: 1366 x 768 @ 60 Hz.
    • For the w2338h monitor: 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz.

  • OSD Lock-out : When the OSD is locked, the warning message OSD Lock displays for 10 seconds.
  • No Input Signal : Indicates the monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer on the monitor video input connector. Check whether the computer or input signal source is off or in the power-save mode.
  • Auto Adjustment in Progress : Indicates the auto-adjustment function is active and in process.

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!
