'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.

NOTE: When the OSD is locked, pressing the 'Menu' button will take the user directly to the 'OSD settings' menu, with 'OSD Lock' preselected on entry. Select 'No'(-) to unlock and allow user access to all applicable settings.

Padlock icon


Many monitors have an on-screen display lock (the padlock icon) that seems to get stuck.
Various suggestions in the links below - the one that seems to work most often is to hold the monitor's menu button down for 15-20 seconds to get the screen menu, then either try unlocking the OSD (On Screen Display) or do a factory reset on the monitor.

Different monitors have slightly different menus, but if it's a Dell monitor you can find the manual below (under Display):

I have this monitor,got it used at the goodwill, padlock problem and the control buttons (eccept for power) did not work. I tried every solution posted with no success. Then I got brave, I dove into the problem. 1) remove base, four phillips head screws. 2) remove the back, five phillips head screws. one in each corner and one behind the base mount, thus the need to remove the base. 3) carefully pry off the back, it snaps on, so take your time. I found a butter knife to be very helpfull. 4) The buttons are sodered to an electrical board whitch is snapped into place so carefully pry up from one side,again I used a butter knife. The wires are sodered to the board, they do not unplug. 5) Using a can of air, blow into each button and trying to clean out the inside them. I'm sure they should probably be replaced but we do what we can. 6) Put it all back together. 7) plug it in and connect it to computer. start working the buttons, at first I thought it was a lost cause but after about a minute I was able to get into the menue, scroll down using the arrow buttons and turn the lock off. A $300 monitor for 40 bucks. I hope this message gets to you before you give up. GOOD LUCK, GMAN8773

Dear Choji,

If obviously the problem has not occured again then you have solved it on your own. Bravo to that. You shoud give yourself a proud pat on your back. But if the problem still exists, then its with the device driver settings of the monitor. Try reinstalling the monitor by reinstalling its drivers.

If this still does not help then refer to an authoised service personel.

The front panel switches seem to be the culprit.

The dell monitors are bad with capacitors going out, check caps in power supply and video board. You can use a can of freeze, it would be easier that way. Just be careful not to touch anything, because these monitors can shock easy.
