Question about HP L1530 (Carbonite, Silver) 15" LCD Monitor
This monitor worked great, until the onscreen menu started popping up. It would pop up, you'd close it, and it'd pop up again. Because the menu was on top of everything else, and refused to go away, the monitor is unusable. So it's in my closet, because, other than that, it works great, and I haven't totally given up on it yet. If anyone could help me to disable the onscreen menu function, or replace any part that was broke, I'd sure appreciate it. Thanks!

I have a Dell E171FPB monitor that had the
same problem with the Main Menu coming up and I thought I would tell you
what I did to fix the problem.
1. I shut down the PC.
2. I removed the power cable and video cable from the back of the monitor.
3. I removed the four screws that hold the stand for the monitor and slid the stand off.
4. I then removed the 5 screws that hold the back cover on the monitor.
5. I took two flat blade screw drivers and carefully removed the back cover.
At the bottom of the monitor case, there is a small circuit board the holds the 6 switches for controlling the display.
6. I located the button that calls up the Main Menu. It is the second switch from the left as you are looking at the monitor from the rear.
7. I used a small solder iron and heated up the four prongs in sequence while holding the switch with a pair of needle nose pliers. I had to rotate this process from one prong to the other while all the time applying slight pulling pressure on the switch pulling it away from the circuit board.
8. Once the switch was removed, I put the cover back on and tightened up the five screws.
9. Then I slid the base back in the slot it came from and tightened the four screws.
10. I connected the video and power cable and turned on the PC.
With the switch removed the Main Menu never popped up again and I am so very happy.

Please try to Turn the monitor off. Hold down the Menu button while the monitor is turned off, then press the Power button again to turn the monitor back on. This should unlock your OSD menu and remove that message from your screen. best regards

There is a little circuit board under the buttons that has gone bad or the button was pushed to far in and depressed the button sensor inside, befor you begen going into this monitor let me warn you of the risk. There is very high voltages inside that can ;ead to injury up including your death, so with that in mind and your ready to pop the back off this, lok at the little board take a cue tip, cotten swab and genly push on the button to see if it free itself if not this little board will need to be replaced.

Was something spilled on the volume key? Sounds like it is stuck... you can use a fine toothpick and plain water to "scrub" around the key, there may be some buildup that inhitbits the key from "unpressing".
Hope this helps!

dirty switch. I took my 2009m apart and cleaned the switches with alcohol on a qtip and the problem's gone. Not too hard to do. Leverage the case gently with a putty knife or something and it will pop open. Then pop around the edge to remove the back completely.
