SOURCE: Hisense LCD Tl2020

I, also, have the Hisense LCD 1504 and cannot turn it on with the original remote. I have to use the ON button on the side every morning. You have to hold this button in for a while then wait a while and presto, the blue button shows on the front and the picture comes on. If it fails to work the first try, just try try again. It does work for me this way. We had this same experience with the TV in our room at a Hotel where we were on vacation and the TV worked fine when we turned it on using the side ON button. It just takes a while for the picture to appear. Hope this clue will help someone.

SOURCE: DELL LCD TV locked up w/screen message "main menu locked"

without a remote and disabled keypad keys, the only other option, is to open the unit up a physically RESET the TV. remove the cables from the power board. i believe it has a phillips head screw. careful when you separate the rear cover from the front cover. there is a board screwed in the lower right corner, there is a connecter and a ground cable screwed to the rear cover. take your time prying on the rear cover. once you separated the two pieces, look for the light yellow board with your AC power source. Unplug it for 30 minutes and repeat the process. while your at it, also look down to the lower left side of the monitor. u should be able to see the keypad. press each button, while pressing, look to see if the button is pressing against the circuit board. it may be loose, try this test, u just may be able to fix your keyboard as well. hope this works out.

SOURCE: my main menu button is locked and don't know how?!

if its a w1900 this is a known setting. Press the menu button on the right hand side of the TV (second button UP, just above power/standby. Now, WHILE THE MENU LOCK MESSAGE IS BEING DISPLAYED, press CH ^ and VOL - AT THE SAME TIME. Menu unlocked message should be displayed.

And you're done.

Might take a couple of tries - this tv/monitor is a bit fiddly...

I have a 18 month old inspiron 1545 and suddenly its display went to dead black. But still windows is loading up i can hear sounds and music but can't see a single blink on the display. Don't know...


Hi paramvirgull...

Hook your laptop to an external monitor and see if the screen comes on...if it does then your lcd screen is faulty and needs replacment.
If it does not come on then re-download your video driver/s. If that does not work.
Maybe your lcd inverter or backlight bulb is faulty and needs replacement.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Hello i have a 19 inch LG M197 WDP monitor/tv, when i switch it on the screen is white with a little gray bock that flashes and slowly moves across the top of the screen reading v3.02.0 which i presume is...


I also had an LG M197WDP tv/Monitor with the same problem. It comes straight on when plugged in, but with the blank screen and scrolling version number across the top.
The solution:
1. Use the remote control (check batteries first)
2. Point at the working TV and press either MENU or EXIT
3. Static should be seen on the screen.
4. Switch to standby using the remote, by preesing POWER button.
5. Switch back on using the POWER button.
All should then be working normally

A lock symbol appears


Hello. On this Dell flat panel the menu access appears to be locked, if the lock symbol you are referring to is from the monitor itself.

You should be able to lock or unlock the OSD by pushing and holding the Menu button for 15 seconds.
