HP2465 model: This is a part time fix and quite funny. After hours of trying things I found that if you tape the "input" button "on" (in) it worked for us. Then you put in the service call to replace the monitor if you are under contract or warranty. Your model may require other rube golberg temporaty fixes. Regards, Mr Fixit

Hold the menu/ok button for ten seconds, to unlock the OSD.
If this doesn't solve the problem, then it's probably the button that got stuck.

There are two things you can do to repair it, but both require that you dismantle the casing, which voids any warranty.. so, if the monitor's still covered by the warranty, or if money is not an issue, have it repaired by professionals on an accredited brand shop (check your warranty details for more information on this subject).

If not, remove the casing, locate the menu button's contact switch on the circuit board, and try to release it using something thin like a screwdriver, x-acto knife, or set of plyers.
If this doesn't work, chances are the menu button is stuck on a loop, sending a continuous signal to the board (which keeps locking/unlocking the OSD).

If so, your only solution (other than take it to a repair shop) is to remove it, by prying it off with a screwdriver or set of plyers.
Of course, you'll lose access to the OSD features, but I guess this is better than to have a message stuck on front of your screen all the time..

This is a tried and working solution, since I had this problem myself (with a Philips 190B monitor), and solved it successfully, with this method.

My HP 1730 monitor is showing "OSD Lock Out" message. How can I remove this msg?


The following site has step by step instructions on steps you can try: http://www.ehow.com/how_5008634_fix-lockout-display-computer-monitor.html
I'll paste them below: All computer monitors, whether they are LCD or CRT style, have a built-in feature called the on screen display (OSD) lock out that prevents users from viewing any images on the monitor. If your computer screen has accidentally been set to the OSD lock out setting, there are several different ways you can remove the lock out, depending on the make and model of your particular computer monitor.
1 Power your computer completely off 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 all of the way. Power the computer back on and check to see if the OSD lock out message is still being displayed.
2 Check the manual that came with your computer or monitor and locate the troubleshooting section if you are still receiving the OSD lock out message. Find the OSD lock out heading and read the method that your particular model of monitor uses to remove the lock out. Follow the instructions to remove the lock out.
3 Attempt generic lock out removal procedures if you no longer have the manual that came with your monitor. Press and hold the "Menu" button located at the bottom end of your monitor for 15 seconds and wait to see if the OSD lock out message disappears.
4 Press the "Menu" button again if the lock out 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.
5 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 over to the "Exit" setting and then hit the Menu key a final time to exit the menu setting and remove the OSD lock out.

My monitor says the OSD is locked I can't unlock it


Hi,

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

Or else you can try this method also, Hold the menu/ok button for ten seconds, to unlock the OSD. If this doesn't solve the problem, then it's probably the button that got stuck. Remove the casing, locate the menu button's contact switch on the circuit board, and try to release it using something thin like a screwdriver, x-acto knife, or set of plyers.If this doesn't work, chances are the menu button is stuck on a loop, sending a continuous signal to the board (which keeps locking/unlocking the OSD).
