Re: OSD problem on my Acer AL1715 17 in.

I had a simalar problem with my Dell 2001FP. The issue is that there is false triggering of the switch; you need to open the front panel, and remove the swictch from the circuit by: 1) analyze the circuitl; its usally pretty simple - a voltage drop circuit. 2) disable the switch by either removing it with a solder gun or, simply by using a sharp blade and cutting the PCB track leading it to it, as I did.(much easier - and reversible!) Fixed my problem.

Re: OSD problem on my Acer AL1715 17 in.

Have found an Analog version of Acer AL1715 OSD version.. It only seems to appears when there is a fault..
How to activate .. When the annoying osd pop's up turn monitor off press and hold the button next to the Auto button; while holding button press the on button.the lcd light should flash amber then green. wait till monitor displays normal then press the menu button.
The Analog osd version should be displayed. What to do after this ?
Don't Know!!!!!!

OSD Locked pop menu


You must reset the on screen display in the menu. Hold down the Menu button for at least 60 seconds. A menu list will appear on your monitor screen. Using the adjust button, press the arrows to enter the menu. Scroll down to the Reset section.
On the right side of your screen, you will see an alternating Yes/No choice. When the Yes message flashes, press the Ok button. The menu should be reset and the flashing OSD control message should disappear.
I hope it helps.

Stupid padlock/main menu keeps opening and closing DELLe152fp

That is the OSD (On Screen Display) system built-in to your computer monitor. Check that when you hit the ON/OFF button on your monitor, that you do *NOT* hit the 'OSD ON/OFF' button.

Most of the time, the OSD will disappear after 10 seconds of "non-use".

Monitor menu shows up all of a sudden

If the butttons are not stuck on these monitors it could be something as simple as dry joints on the monitor somewhere. When this happens again lightly tap the front where the buttons are without pressing any and the sides then finally the back. If any of this tapping causes the menu to suddenly disappear and reappear then its dry joints. Otherwise it could be a number of problems. Post if it does not work and I will tell you more. Good luck.

Osd locked

I had precisely the same problem... I depressed the Menu Button for about twelve seconds or more and the menu actually finally popped up; and does so now every time I depress Menu! Hope this works for you.

Menu and OSD Problem

Yep. Sounds like one of the buttons is shorting out and causing the icon to pop up. You can try canned air. If your good with tools, See if you can take the bezal(the plastic part around the screen) apart to clean the button contacts.
