Question about Acer Professional P211 21" CRT Monitor

Open Question

OSD Locked, fading problem.

Hi, I have a 22" AOC Monitor (2230FA), and if I press the power button (in order to access the menu) it says that the OSD is locked. Same for if I press either the up, left, or right button.

Another problem is that when something dark or black shows up on the screen - the whole screen darkens... rather than just the portion that is supposed to. I can still see everything, but its just several shades darker.

Thanks!

For my 917Sw 19"w, I just ran into this problem. It was kinda annoying, but after looking around then remembering to look in the instructions, I found I just had to turn off the monitor, then hold the left button as I turned the monitor back on.

SOURCE: I need a manual for a 22" AOC monitor

Suggest you go to AOC Support, Downloads>Manuals, and type the exact model of AOC monitor that you have.
Download the User Manual.

For example:

http://us.aoc.com/support/downloads

Product Category:
Left-click on the blue down arrow, to the right of this box.
Left-click on LCD Monitors

Model Number:
Left-click on the blue down arrow to the right of this box.
Scroll down, and left-click on the model number of your AOC LCD monitor.

After you have done this, a drop down menu will appear.
Where it states your monitor's model number, and the word - MANUAL, go to the right, and click on the white - Download.

The User Manual is in PDF file form. Give it a few seconds to download.

Osd unlock


To unlock the OSD (onscreen display control), turn off the monitor and then press and hold the Menu button on the monitor. Then press the power button to turn the monitor back on. Do not release the Menu button before pressing the power button. This same step (holding the Menu button and then pressing the power button) enables the OSD lock. The menu button is the top button on the right side of the monitor (on the bezel). The power button is the bottom button of the group. AOC has the documentation for the 2036sa here: http://us.aoc.com/monitor_displays/2036sa . See page 20 of the User's Guide for the OSD lock procedure. The picture of the monitor buttons is on page 19. The guide is available as a PDF on the AOC site. Note: you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the file.

I hope this helps.
