LG20" monitor. Suddenly a red

Try to reset it
Scroll through the menu options by using the up and down arrow buttons located just under the "Menu" button. Scroll down to the "Setup" icon, which looks like a big cog. Press the "Auto/Set" button to access the Setup menu. Scroll, using the down arrow, to "Factory Reset." This setting is located at the bottom of the Setup menu. Press the "Menu" button on the right side of the monitor. This will bring up the On Screen Display. If nothing happens when the "Menu" button is pressed, press and hold it for several seconds to unlock the On Screen Display. Press the "Auto/Set" button to choose "Factory Reset" and then press the down arrow to reset the monitor.

If the device is COMPLETELY DEAD, either the batteries are inserted improperly, OR one or more batteries is dead, OR it is a defective item and should be returned to the retailer for a refund.

"secret menu" doesnt work.

Sounds like you are doing it right, but just to make sure:
  1. Press (but do not hold) the menu button.
  2. Press (but do not hold) the "0" button. This should bring up a "Service Menu" box with 6 question marks.
  3. Press the "0" key 6 times.
As far as I know, this is the only way to get into the service menu.
