Question about Dell E152FP 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

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.

    Ok the main problem is the circuits or the wires are either broken or loose(I just found out)

    What i did is i took a toothpick (wood) and taped it on the buttons (not school tape, real ones).

    What happened afterwards is the problem was fixed, but if you took off the toothpick, the pop up will re-appear off and on.

    In this case it is a laptop, so i am unsure.
    Mine is a Desktop. Bye

That is the OSD (On Screen Display) system built-in to your computer monitor. Check that when you hit the ON/OFF button on your monitor, that you do *NOT* hit the 'OSD ON/OFF' button.

Most of the time, the OSD will disappear after 10 seconds of "non-use".

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!

Hello Nirel,

I'm assuming you're talking about the menu on the monitor itself. Is the button jammed for some reason forcing the menu to open?

CAN YOU PLEASE HELP FIGURE OUT WHY MY VIEW SONIC 20INCH LCD MONITOR MENU BOX KEEPS POPPING UP AND IT IS DRIVING ME CRAZY


The problem is caused by either its main controller board or button controller board.

Well, I will try to change button board first, because it's cheap.

If you have never open up the LCD monitor, please don't open it up and try to fix!
Either you will damage the monitor when you open and/or be shocked by high voltage electricity!!

The main menu keeps on popping up and sets itself. It drives me crazy. What do we need to do to fix the issue?


Hi!

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 works.

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.

Hope I helped!

My computer screen has a blue box that pops up and say "Controls locked". I am assuming that the buttons on the bottom right hand corner of my moniter is what it is talking about because when I hit the...


This is from the user manual for the monitor. You can download a copy from hp here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=324216&os=228&lang=en&

Click on the "monitor user's guide" link to download.

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.

Osd main controls locked/unlocked pops up every 5 seconds


Hi,

Press the Menu button ( marked OK) for one minute, or more, and a blue/red menu list should appear on screen.

Using the adjust button (immediately to the left of the OK button) by pressing the arrows at each end up or down as required you can enter the menu and select an action by scrolling.

At the end of the list of possible adjustments on the left of the screen (brightness, contrast, etc) is the Reset section.

On the righthand side of the screen is a flashing Yes No choice which automatically alternates.

The trick is to select the Reset choice on the left and while selected press the OK button when the Yes alternative on the right of the screen is flashing.

You VDU should then Reset and all will be well.

Resolution notice keeps popping up every thirty seconds or so. very annoying. this happens only when using cd rom game diablo. wants me to change to 1280x1024, which my computer is set at now. otherwise...


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.

22' FPD2275W gatewate monitor menu is locked


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!

Problem on hp monitor


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 cover.

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 circuit board.
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 four screws.
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 very happy.
