Stupid padlock/main menu keeps opening and closing DELLe152fp
Hello Everytime i run the computer, the monitor pops itself a "Main-menu" or a "Pad lock", without me clicking manually the button to open it. And it even sometimes closes itself. I've ran an anti-virus and there aren't any of those viruses/malware...
The menu contains settings to change positioning, image, color, language, etc.
Re: stupid padlock/main menu keeps opening and closing...
I don't think you have understood the issue ikkeno. I have the same monitor and the same problem. In fact it's happening right now!!
Without touching any keys, and just looking at the monitor, the menu box pops up for no reason, then disappears. The timings are random, so it could flash up for half a second, or it could stay for over a minute. If I press exit, it will normally come straight back on. I've also seen a lock/unlocked padlock symbol appear that also stays on the screen for long periods of time.
I just can't find what's causing this. I am running it as a dual screen from a Toshiba Satellite Pro L10 laptop. I've checked the connecting cables, and the power cables. I've tested the buttons, and they all work fine. If you turn the monitor off and on again, the issue continues. I'm at a real loss why it keeps doing this and why it is so random, as if someone is sitting there, pressing the menu key at random intervals.
Does anyone have any idea? It's driving me crazy!

Without getting more information on your issue, what I suggest is for you to do a hard monitor reset. To do so unplug the monitor and hold down the monitor's
power button for 30 seconds without letting go. Plug the monitor back in and see how it
Also, the problem could be with a faulty physical contact on the monitor itself, check each button on the monitor for a depression and release "feel". Sometimes these buttons go bad.

There are four adjustable options on the OSD settings screen: Lock OSD settings, Timeout, H Position, and V Position. To change OSD settings: 1 Open the OSD setting screen under the Advanced menu. See “Using the On Screen Display” on page 25. 2 Press the Browse buttons to select the option you want to adjust. 3 Press the Select button to check the option. To change OSD lock setting: 1 Press the Browse button to select yes (lock) or no (unlock). The setting is automatically saved when you change the value. 2 Choose Exit sub-menu and press the Select button to return to the OSD Main Menu or press the Menu button to exit OSD. NOTE: Once OSD is locked, all OSD functions including the shortcut buttons are disabled. If OSD is locked, pressing any button on the monitor directly opens the Lock OSD settings window so that you can unlock OSD.
When you load the splash screen of Diablo enter into settings. Make sure you have the game set to the screen resolution you want.
For the system. Open display properties. Click Settings, click Advanced, click Monitor. (Most games require 60 hertz) to run correctly. Change your monitor to 60 hertz. Than click the Adapter tab. Click list all modes. Move the slide bar to your normal screen res with 60 hertz. Click ok at every screen as you back out od display properties. That should stop your game from popping up.
Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages. Good Luck!
I know you said there were others that had the
same problem with the Main Menu coming up and I thought I would tell you
what I did to fix the problem.
1. I shut down the PC.
2. I removed the power cable and video cable from the back of the monitor.
3. I removed the four screws that hold the stand for the monitor and
slid the stand off.
4. I then removed the 5 screws that hold the back cover on the monitor.
5. I took two flat blade screw drivers and carefully removed the back
At the bottom of the monitor case, there is a small circuit board the
holds the 6 switches for controlling the display.
6. I located the button that calls up the Main Menu. It is the second
switch from the left as you are looking at the monitor from the rear.
7. I used a small solder iron and heated up the four prongs in sequence
while holding the switch with a pair of needle nose pliers. I had to
rotate this process from one prong to the other while all the time
applying slight pulling pressure on the switch pulling it away from the
8. Once the switch was removed, I put the cover back on and tightened
up the five screws.
9. Then I slid the base back in the slot it came from and tightened the
10. I connected the video and power cable and turned on the PC.
With the switch removed the Main Menu never popped up again and I am so
