In the menu is a timeout function, as long as your making a movement choice you should be able to find it. if nothing else go up and down until you locate it.

    what ever monitor you are using is the same for most all type.
    you open the menu button
    to go up and down use an adjacent button to go up or down you will have to experiment to find which one.
    then to enter the menu it is either the menu button again or another button entirely another expeirment
    sometime the osd buttons are on the side of monitor instead of the front like menu.

Lcd monitor working fine but the adjustment screen apears on my monitor in a small square enveloppe how can i restore system thanks in advanceDewulf Jan


I assume by "adjustment screen" you mean the OSD (On Screen Display). This is the box where the menus for adjusting the screen appear. If I'm correct, that means you have pushed the "menu" button on your LCD and need to push it again to turn the OSD off. If pushing it again does not solve the problem I would say it's time to have the LCD repaired. In many, but not all, that OSD goes off on it's own after a bit.

My 2001FP shows the contrast cotrol greyed out and the screen has very low contrast, which I need to correct. I use it with a Dell Inspion 9300. The laptop screen has excellent contrast. The 2001FP...


I have four Dell 2001FP monitors. The unavailable contrast is standard for this monitor when used with digital input (DVI). Make sure your brightness is at 100%.If you want a better result of dynamic range and color, the only effective option is color calibration. I use the inexpensive Huey Pro, available
several places, including eBay. Retail is around $100. It something one uses maybe twice a year, takes five minutes to install and use, and the results are notable. I'm a designer, and need excellent color. This is the best solution. Calibrate your laptop as well, and the color should be almost exactly the same between them.

As an alternative, you can use the color settings, select User Preset, and start with something around 40 red 43 green and 37 blue. Adjust proportionately upward until you get what you want.

Another possibility is to use a different connector cable if your laptop has that option, since your monitor an take four different input formats.

Good luck.

"OSD LOCKED" box on my screen


The OSD can be enabled or disabled by pressing and holding the Menu button on the front panel for 10 seconds. If the OSD is locked, the warning message OSD Lock displays for ten seconds.

* If the OSD is locked, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds to unlock the OSD.
* If the OSD is unlocked, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds to lock the OSD.



OSD stands for "On Screen Display." It is an onscreen configuration menu included with various monitors. When you press the MENU button or one of the other buttons on the front or side of a monitor, the onscreen display may appear. The OSD typically includes monitor calibration options, such as brightness, contrast, and color adjustments. Some OSDs may also include horizontal and vertical position controls as well as tilt and keystone adjustments.
If you can't make adjustments to the monitor settings using the OSD interface, the onscreen display may be locked. You may also see the phrase "OSD Locked" appear when you try to change the settings. Some monitors include an option within the menu called "OSD Lock", which you can turn on or off. If this option is available, simply turn OSD Lock off and you will be able to make adjustments to the settings.
If your monitor does not include the "OSD Lock" option, you may be able to unlock the OSD by pressing and holding the MENU button on the front or side of the monitor for several seconds. If you try this method, be patient! It may take up to 15 seconds for the OSD to unlock.

Hi, i'm trying the PMS code Pantone 2756 C on illustrator Cs4 and what i'm getting on the screen/printed material is completely different from the color bridge that i have


You cannot match a Pantone swatch book to your monitor unless you have calibrated it using something like Huey: http://www.pantone.com/pages/products/product.aspx?pid=562&ca=2 as a monitor is backlit and printed materials are not.

Depending on what sort of printer you are using, it also may need to be calibrated or have its profiles updated.

Stupid padlock/main menu keeps opening and closing DELLe152fp


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".

We're seeing heavy pixelation on all of our prints.


I would try going to the color menu on the printer and performing the density and registration calibration that should cure your problem hope this helps.
