To resolve the issue you can hold the power button of the monitor until you get another message something similar to "OSD unlocked". Now if the problem continues, switch off the monitor and remove the power cable then let it sit for a couple of minutes to 5 and connect it again.

Unwantred announcments in the center of the screen


This problem comes from the control switches on the front panel. I had the same problem and fixed it by opening the monitor (unscrew 3 screws on the back side, remove plastic shape of the stand, unscrew 5 screws of the stand and open the back; unscrew the 2 screws of the button switch panel). Now inject contact spray on every switch button. If the problem remains you may have to replace the button swithces. Thats all!

CANNOT REMOVE THE OSD MAIN MENU FROM MONITOR SCREEN


Hi,
The problem of OSD Menus popping up automatically are usually caused due to a faulty switch in the Menu button which is getting switched on automatically.

This menu will not harm the computer but constant OSD menu will most probably lead to permanent damage to the pixels in the LCD screen plus it is a constant irritation to your eyes which are most precious.

This problem can be rectified by replacing the faulty menu switch. Hope this solves your problem Thanks.

OSD lockout appears constantly in center of screen. (HP w1907)


If you have tried changing hook up cables and tested your monitor on another computer with the same result. You have to take the monitor in for servicing. Something has gone wrong in the control circuit and it needs repair. Hope this helps.

This is from the user manual for the monitor. You can download a copy from hp here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=324216&os=228&lang=en&

Click on the "monitor user's guide" link to download.

There are four adjustable options on the OSD settings screen: Lock OSD settings, Timeout, H Position, and V Position.
To change OSD settings:
1 Open the OSD setting screen under the Advanced menu. See
“Using the On Screen Display” on page 25.
2 Press the Browse buttons to select the option you want to adjust.
3 Press the Select button to check the option.
To change OSD lock setting:
1 Press the Browse button to select yes (lock) or no (unlock). The
setting is automatically saved when you change the value.
2 Choose Exit sub-menu and press the Select button to return to
the OSD Main Menu or press the Menu button to exit OSD.
NOTE: Once OSD is locked, all OSD functions including the
shortcut buttons are disabled. If OSD is locked, pressing
any button on the monitor directly opens the Lock OSD
settings window so that you can unlock OSD.

OSD doesn't appear


You will find the number one motto from many of the Tech's is "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!!" If you must fix it try the latest drivers for your video card and for the monitor. The OS(XP) is always changing. Keep the drivers up to date. Otherwise. Don't mess with it. Good Luck, Let me know what happens. Tim
