Hold in the menu or ok button on the monitor for 10 seconds, that should hopefully solve it.

Continual pop-ups saying OSD Main Control locked followed by language choice, etc. I have tried the buttons on the monitor with no effect

I held down the OK button for several seconds and the message vanished. On releasing the OK button, the problem reappeared. I intend to put a rubber glue (one that can be removed) which hardens on application, to hold down the OK button in the pressed position. Hope this solves the problem.
