Question about Dell UltraSharp 1900FP 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Menu and OSD Problem

While surfing the web, wordprocessing, or even playing a game the Menu Box or the OSD Lock icon pops up on the screen without touching any of the display buttons. If I do nothing it will "time-out" and dissappear only to reappear several seconds later. They will also disappear if I push the Menu button only to reappear several seconds later. This is very annoying especially when playing a game. What could be causing this? Dirty display buttons? Can the display buttons be cleaned with canned air or contact cleaner?

    I have the same problem (not sure what 'OSD' is though) but I do have a lock icon pop up; it will be intermittant. I also have a 1900FP menu pop up as well...it will go on for a while, then it will go away. Right now, the lock icon is 'locked' on screen...it's no longer going on and off, it is now remaining on.

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.

A Box That has Volume in and it has a bar, and it says 0


Hi,

Sounds like some sort of On Screen Display (OSD) for your Monitor or maybe even your Capture Card/Software. Some devices/software will keep popping up the volume OSD if the sound have been muted.

"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.

May need to do this with if off (OSD Lock Function: To lock the OSD, press and hold the MENU button while the monitor is off and then press power button to turn the monitor on. To un-lock the OSD - press and hold the MENU button while the monitor is off and then press power button to turn the monitor on.)

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".

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.
