    It seems that the monitor's control buttons are locked. We can try to help you with this issue if you provide the Monitor's name and Model Number.

Sounds like the logic board is acting up.
Has it been dropped or hit or got wet ?
DO you know if eztilt software was ever used on it ?
It may be just a weak connection on the ribbon that connects to the touch power button board (not a very good system)
It would have to be opened up to check that.

The power board tends to fail on these an should e looked at while it's open. The main video board tends to have 1 or 2 voltage regulators that fail. (there is a slight chance one may be causing this but I haven't seen that result yet)

Some opening info:
remove the stand (2 screws)
Take the 3 screws out of the bottom rear edge (these hold the front trim),and the 4 big black ones at the middle of the back
the the trim then unsnaps. {Be aware of the small ribbon to the power button board on the right edge} Start at the bottom and release the trim usually by gripping it on the lcd screen side with your fingertips and pulling outward, then work your way up each side from the back where the front trim meets the rear case. Work from the bottom to the top (a pocket knife or thin putty knife will help release the catches) You can also sharpen the edge of a credit card-(plastic is a little safer)
Then unsnap the top edge (rocking it while lifting helps)
Disconnect the ribbon, (Tiny latch lifts up on a hinge and ribbon slides out)
Once trim is off, remove the 4 corner screws that hold the screen in. Then the screen will lift out with all the guts. You may have to use a screwdriver like a crowbar in the corners to start the screen to lift up.
You’ll then have to remove a bunch of screws including the speaker ones and the usb board ones and unplug the bulbs and wire to the screen
then the inverter is under the center area under the metal cover
Shout if you need more info.
If you email me a good picture of the inverter , I may be able to get a better idea if it is the inverter from a visual.
Thanks Fran

The Control Lock light on my Maytag 5000 Series dryer is flashing, and the dryer makes an error beep when I try to start it.


Make sure there is nothing in the way of the door closing good. Sounds like something keeping it from closing good.

Why am I getting osd main controls locked flashing and then the same message saying unlocked and i am unable to clear it - posted in Monitors ... the attention osd locked is constantly flashing on and off...


Most of the monitors have a function to lock the OSD to prevent accidental changes in the configuration of the monitor.
If you are constantly getting the message about OSD being locked and unlocked then it means that the OSD locking button is constantly pressed.
Usually it is the "Menu" button on the monitor which is used to lock the OSD.
Check if the Menu button is constantly pressed.

Here you go!
From Dell website:
'OSD Lock': Controls user access to adjustments. When 'Yes' (+) is selected, no user adjustments are allowed. All buttons are locked except the menu button.
All buttons can be locked or unlocked when the 'Menu' button is pushed and held for over 15 seconds. See more here:

2002 bmw 530i key does not (remotely) unlock doors or trunk but they work fine manually.


Unlock vehicle. Enter vehicle. Close driver's door. Switch ignition ON and OFF. Remove ignition key. Press and hold unlock button. Press lock button briefly 3 times within 10 seconds keeping unlock button depressed. Release unlock button. Some models: LED flashes slowly for 10 seconds. Some models: Central locking system locks and unlocks rapidly to indicate correct programming. Repeat above procedure if central locking system does not work and LED does not flash or LED flashes continuously.

Monitor displays "Controls Locked"


This is a "feature" they include to prevent accidental changes to the screen setup. You should be able to unlock the OSD by pushing the Menu button and the right arrow button together for about three seconds. The message "controls unlocked" should appear. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don't forget to rate the posting.
