My HP w2408 monitor. I just fixed this issue about 5 mins ago after getting tierd of whacking the buttons with anything handy. There are 2 slots on the underside of the monitor, in between the black frame and silver outer frame. Stick a flat screw driver and use a motion as if to literally pull the black frame away from the monitor. Use caution and dont stick the screw driver too far in. You will hear it pop. Do the same to the other side. There are multiple tabs arond the frame including one in the bottom center. Keep pulling on the free ends of the frame till all the tabs come off. Now you will see the buttom assembly, disconnect the small white connector from the montior. If you dont care for the buttons, which if you have a w2408 or any such model you will never use (auto detects input and auto adjusts) then just pop the frame back on. If you want to go further remove the 2 screws on the button assembly pull down on the silver frame to remove the button assembly. I did not go further then this but i read somewhere that if you wash the assembly in some liquid it will work again. I am guessing some good acohol from walgreens will do. For me I am just glad the message when away.

Keep fixing and keep sharing! Corporations that sell to the masses will show respect only when the masses unite.

    Great advice! However, when I disconnected either the small white or small black connector the power button didn't work. So I undid the 2 screws on the button assembly, removed the board, and broke off the metal grounding for the "Menu" button since that was the one that was stuck. The groundings are square metal with a black circle (that the plastic external button compresses). Success!

Monitor display says OSD Lockout /no signal input how to fix this?


This document pertains to LCD monitors .
One of the following messages appears on the screen (over the items being displayed).
OSD Lockout
OSD Lock-out
... or similar message.
This message occurs when the Menu button on the front panel is pressed for more than 10 seconds. OSD lockout prevents the OSD menu from opening on the screen when a button is accidentally pressed.
NOTE: The button may be different and the procedure might vary on some monitors. Please check your monitor User Guide to find the exact procedure if this procedure does not work.
To remove the OSD Lockout message, release the Menu button (if something was pressing against it), and press and hold the Menu button again for about 10 seconds - until the message goes away. If the OSD Lockout message does not go away, the button may be stuck or the hardware behind the button might have become defective.

All computer monitors, whether they are LCD or CRT style, have a built-in feature called the on-screen display (OSD) lockout that prevents users from viewing any images on the monitor. If your computer screen has accidentally been set to the OSD lockout setting, there are several ways you can remove the lockout.

Power off your computer and then remove the monitor cable from the port on the back side of the computer case. Reattach the cable and make sure the pins are correctly screwed in. Power the computer back on and check to see if the OSD lockout message is still being displayed. Check the manual that came with your computer or monitor and locate the troubleshooting section if you are still receiving the OSD lockout message. Find the OSD lockout heading and read the method that your particular model uses to remove the lockout. Attempt generic lockout removal procedures if you no longer have the manual that came with your monitor. Press and hold the "Menu" button located at the bottom of your monitor for 15 seconds and wait to see if the OSD lockout message disappears. Press the "Menu" button again if the lockout message remains on the screen. Use the arrow buttons to navigate through the main menu options. Highlight the "Settings" or "OSD Menu" option and then hit the Menu key again to access the new list of settings. Scroll down to the "OSD Lock" heading. Use the arrow keys to change the setting to "No." Hit the Menu key again to return to the main menu. Scroll to the "Exit" setting and then hit the Menu key a final time to exit the menu setting and remove the OSD lockout.

Osd lockout? How do I get the on screen display unlocked?


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.

HP pavilion vf15 monitor (OSD lockout)


this could be a bad button connection or the osd IC chip is failing for some reason that would need to be tested to determine why.
so if you can take it apart then clean the button and the plastic of dirt , and check the contact button to see if it looks faulty or check it to see if it is making contact all the time
if those are not the problem then it is the IC chip and will need testing to find the culprit
