White horizental lines across the LCD Monitor.

This is a high voltage horizontal output problem. Could just be a loose connection or an intermitant component failure. If you can get into it, check for any loose connections. Sometimes this can also be caused by a large accumulation of dust. Make sure you unplug it before opening it up.

When i press the power button to turn off monitor, i get a power button lockout message. how do i unlock the power button

I did not see anything regarding to the Power locked out function, may be it's time to call HP. Please post back what you find out from HP.
I look at HP WEBSITE:

Locking OSD settings
When the OSD is locked, settings cannot be changed in the OSD menu. The OSD functionality is enabled or disabled by pressing the Menu button and holding it for 10 seconds. Upon disabling the OSD, an OSD Lock-out message is displayed for 10 seconds. When the OSD is locked and an OSD menu button is pressed, the OSD Lock-out message is displayed for an additional 10 seconds. When the OSD is locked, pressing the OSD menu button for 10 seconds unlocks the OSD and displays the main menu. Identifying monitor conditions
Special messages display on the monitor screen for the following monitor conditions:
  • Input Signal Out of Range : Indicates the monitor does not support the input signal because the resolution and/or refresh rate are set higher than the monitor supports. Recommended refresh rates are as follows:
    • For the w1858 monitor: 1366 x 768 @ 60 Hz.
    • For the w2338h monitor: 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz.
  • Monitor Going to Sleep : Indicates the screen display is entering a sleep mode.
  • Check Video Cable : Indicates a video input cable is not properly connected to the computer or monitor.
  • OSD Lock-out : When the OSD is locked, the warning message OSD Lock displays for 10 seconds.
  • No Input Signal : Indicates the monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer on the monitor video input connector. Check whether the computer or input signal source is off or in the power-save mode.
  • Auto Adjustment in Progress : Indicates the auto-adjustment function is active and in process.

LG LCD Monitor won't exit Power Saving Mode

Does your desktop/PC display show anything before the monitor goes into power save mode? If nothing comes up, its possible that you have a loose VGA connection or that your video card/motherboard are defective in some ways. Try using a different monitor.

If the other monitor works fine with your computer, try changing/lowering the screen resolution. If in XP right-click on the desktop and go to Properties, and select the tab for display settings and adjust the resolution. If in Vista/Win7, right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution/Display Settings and adjust it there. Then check and see if your LG monitor works on it.

If the other monitor also doesn't show any display, most likely the problem is either with your video cable or your PCs video card/motherboard, not the monitor.

Hope that helps. Good luck

Power indicater light is orange instead of green and computer screen is black

This usually indicates no signal from the video card. If this happens at boot and no POST screen display is seen, try checking the connections between the monitor and the video card, there may be a loose cable. Inspect the ends of the cable for bent or damaged pins. Or try swapping the connection cable.

If this is happening after the post screen, then you have a video driver problem, which can be resolved by booting into safe mode, uninstalling your video card drivers and restarting into normal mode.

Hope this helps,

LG CB553H monitor has power and menu that sais no data. When I connect to a pc there is no display.


A monitor display showing "No Data" indicates that either the PC is not sending any usable video signal or the monitor is not capable of displaying the incoming video signal. To determine which is at fault, you would need either a known good second monitor or a known good second PC.

Additionally, it is also possible that neither is at fault and that you simply need to lower down the Screen Resolution and/or the Screen Refresh Rate of the computer's display properties to match the limitation/capability of the monitor. A method of verifying if this is the case is to start the PC in "Safe Mode" by pressing F8 after POST before Windows boot.

Alternately, there are some instances that it is the video cable that is the issue. To verify, you can try wiggling the cable to the connector end that goes to the PC's Video output.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Mag monitor doesn't display bios post

The BIOS is sending the display information to the monitor but, when you turn your PC on, the LCD will be sleeping and it will take 1~2 seconds to wake up when receiving the display signal. The monitor is working and even if the BIOS messages aren't displayed, you can still press the correct keystrokes to get to the SETUP screen or press PAUSE in the keyboard to see what's going on in the POST.
If your LCD has a bicolor LED indicating the status (Standby/On) keep looking at it, when the LCD gets the video data, the LED turns instantly from amber to Green or blue even if the screen is still black. This way you can have an idea when the LCD gets the initial video signal and to press the keys accordingly.
Your PC will also delay the video output from the secondary video card because it's detected after the onboard card.

HD19A / 19-Inch light flickers but no display

One of 2 possibilities come to mind. 


1,  The vga chord is loose on the back of the monitor.

2, Your resolution is set too high or low to be displayed.


The blinking light means that the monitor is either not getting or understanding a signal.


Hope this helps.
