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.
OSD Lockout in HP Monitors
First restart the Computer. Then hold down the menu button for 30 seconds, the main menu appears, then exist the main menu, then remove power cable of the monitor, then hold down the power on button of the Monitor for 30 seconds, then plug the power cable to the monitor. The OSD Lockout problem set rights.
Once you realize that resetting it doesn't work (as I did ) take it apart. This instruction is for an hp w2007 only! It's the one I just fixed. Remove the three screws holding the base on. The one in the middle is hard to see because it's in a hole but readily accessible. Remove the black back cover by inserting a skinny screwdriver between it and the gray housing. Start in the middle on any of the four corners.Pry it up and work your way to the corners. At the corners pry up with more force and the plastic tabs will snap off. Trust me, just do it!! Once you have snapped the plastic tab at all four corners the back will lift right off. locate the three small wires that go into the menu, -, +, select switches. Cut the three wires and tape them off separately. Do this so they can't touch the case or each other. Do to the wires that are going back toward the monitor! The ones going to the switch do not need to be taped. The switches are now dead. Is that clear? Cut the wires going to the switch and tape the cut ends that go back to the monitor. You will no longer be able to manually adjust anything but I never used the adjustments anyhow. The PC will take care of it for you. I did this 8 hours ago and it's still working perfect! Before I made the fix I was getting OSD Lockout, no input signal, it was scrolling through the menu and the screen was going blank every 5 minutes!! It will work!!!
I have a Dell E171FPB monitor 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
