Question about HP vs15 15"LCD Flat Panel Monitor

5 Answers

OSD Lockout I have a HPw22 22" monitor and the OSD Lockout message has been appearing randomly. I have tried to hold down the menu button for 10 seconds, hooking it up to a different computer  and neither one of these seems to fix the problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a HP vs 19b flat panel lcd monitor and accidently touched a couple buttons on the side. I've no idea what buttons I pressed or in what combination. OSD Lockout now is popping up on the screen. I've turned it off and on, unplugged power, nothing... any help is greatly appreciated.

    I have precisely the same problem with my 2207. I have reinstalled the sw, messed with the buttons to make certain they are not stuck, still have the same problem. I have downloaded the drivers from the HP website as well as an "upgrade " to the whole panel SW package

    I have the same problem. It's a HP 2207 22" LCD. If I push any of the buttons the OSD will go away for a few seconds. If and when I can get the menu up, the selector bar just keeps scrolling. If I can hit the selection I want it will make the desired adjustment. Right now I have it set as transparent as I can, and moved all the way to the left. This is really annoying.

Hold the menu/ok button for ten seconds, to unlock the OSD.
If this doesn't solve the problem, then it's probably the button that got stuck.

There are two things you can do to repair it, but both require that you dismantle the casing, which voids any warranty.. so, if the monitor's still covered by the warranty, or if money is not an issue, have it repaired by professionals on an accredited brand shop (check your warranty details for more information on this subject).

If not, remove the casing, locate the menu button's contact switch on the circuit board, and try to release it using something thin like a screwdriver, x-acto knife, or set of plyers.
If this doesn't work, chances are the menu button is stuck on a loop, sending a continuous signal to the board (which keeps locking/unlocking the OSD).

If so, your only solution (other than take it to a repair shop) is to remove it, by prying it off with a screwdriver or set of plyers.
Of course, you'll lose access to the OSD features, but I guess this is better than to have a message stuck on front of your screen all the time..

This is a tried and working solution, since I had this problem myself (with a Philips 190B monitor), and solved it successfully, with this method.

It's possible a button is physically stuck in the "pressed down" position, check the buttons for normal function. and un-stick by using something thin around the button to pull out or unstuck

hope this helps

OSD Lockout
OSD Lock-out
... or similar message.
This message occurs when the Menu button on the front panel is pressed for more than 10 seconds. OSD lockout prevents the OSD menu from opening on the screen when a button is accidentally pressed.

To remove the OSD Lockout message, release the Menu button (if something was pressing against it), and press and hold the Menu button again for about 10 seconds - until the message goes away.

Osd main controler lockd


Hi there.
OSD Lockout or On Screen Display Lockout message is that irritating on-screen message that sometimes pops up when you switch on your monitor. This completely locks all monitor settings.
This problem has most likely happened to everybody at some stage or another. Everything has worked fine until now you turn on your monitor and have a message glaring you in the face displaying something about "OSD Lockout". This doesn't allow you to change any of your monitors settings, including the setting intended to turn off this message. While this problem mainly happens on HP monitors from my looking around I know that others have encountered it on other brands as well. The fixes I provide below should work on those monitors too so don't fear if your monitor isn't an HP model.
The HP Fixes
FIX 1
Plug in the monitor and power it up. Hold down the monitor's Power button until you get a message saying "OSD Unlocked". If the problem persists after OSD is unlocked then unplug the monitor from the wall, wait a few seconds (just to be sure I'd give it anything around 20-30 seconds) and then try again.
FIX 2
Instead of holding down the Power button, turn on the monitor and hold down the Menu button for 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
FIX 3
Turn off the monitor, press down the Menu button and then turn on the monitor. Wait 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
FIX 4
The Menu button may be stuck in a pressed in position. To get it "unstuck" you'll usually need to open up the monitor. If your not a seasoned veteran at opening up electronics (and knowing where all the screws go back into) then this could be tricky unless you know what you're doing. Unfortunately there are too many models of monitors for me to give a step by step instruction guide for you. If you have warranty this is where you should use it, I suggest you contact the manufacturer.
The AOC Fixes
FIX 1
Turn off the monitor, hold menu and power button together for 10 seconds then turn back on.
Currently these are the most commeon fixes.

What does osd lockout mean and how do i get the box off my computer


Lockouts occur when the software driving the OSD encounters a problem or conflict--akin to your PC's operating system freezing.
Follow this link for more info: http://www.thefakegeek.com/2009/04/how-to-unlock-an-osd-lockout-problem/

Basically you have Four options to solve an OSD lockout.

Fix One: Plug in the monitor and power it up. Hold down the Power button until you get a message saying "OSD Unlocked". If the problem persists after OSD is unlocked then unplug the monitor from the wall, wait 20 seconds and try again.

Fix Two:
Turn on the monitor and hold down the Menu button for 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.

Fix Three:
Turn off the monitor, press down the Menu button and then turn on the monitor. Wait 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.

Fix Four:
The Menu button may be stuck in a pressed in position. To get it "unstuck" you'll usually need to open up the monitor. This could be tricky unless you know what you're doing. Unfortunately there are too many models of monitor for me to provide detailed instructions. If you have warranty this is where you want to contact the manufacturer.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Ocd lockout


Hi,

This message occurs when the Menu button on the front panel is pressed for more than 10 seconds. OSD lockout prevents the OSD menu from opening on the screen when a button is accidentally pressed.

To remove the OSD Lockout message, release the Menu button (if something was pressing against it), and press and hold the Menu button again for about 10 seconds - until the message goes away. If the OSD Lockout message does not go away, the button may be stuck or the hardware behind the button might have become defective.

Osd lockout? How do I get the on screen display unlocked?


OSD Lockout prevents changes being made to the monitor through the use of the front panel buttons. When the OSD is locked, pressing a button from front panel displays OSD Lock-out for about 10 seconds. You can quickly remove the OSD Lockout message by pressing a front panel button again. To unlock the OSD, press and hold the Menu button until the Main menu displays, about 10 seconds. To lock the OSD, press and hold the Menu button until an OSD-Lockout message displays, about 10 seconds.
