Re: osd lock problem

On my Dell 1704FPT I found that it was the Menu button I had to hold for 20 seconds. It did work, though, so thanks for the advice!

Normally the OSD lock will only be displayed for 5 seconds.
Regardless you should be able to get rid of it by pressing holding the up arrow key for 10 seconds.
If this fails to resolve the issue try this. Disconnect power cord. Now press and hold button 1. Plug the power cord back in. You may have to press the power button while still holding button 1. The OSD lock should clear after that.
Hope this helps.
