SOURCE: OSD Main Controls Locked
Hold the "OK" button for about 20 seconds
It will initialy come up with the message "OSD Locked" and then after the 20 seconds a ne message will appear "OSD Unlocked"

You are having a problem with the OSD lock on your ViewSonic Monitor. Is that correct?
If so, please follow these instructions to unlock or lock your monitor.
On some display devices, there is an OSD Lock that locks all current control settings and prevents access to the control menus until this mode is unlocked.
The method for unlocking the OSD is different for different monitors, but will be one of the 2 below. If the first method doesn't work, try the second.
Method 1: Press and hold both the  button on the front of the monitor and the down arrow button for 10 seconds.
Method 2: Press and hold both the  button on the front of the monitor and the up arrow button for 10 seconds.
Note: These same buttons, when pressed for another 10 seconds, will lock the OSD
Please let us know if you require any further help with this matter.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Estava também com o mesmo problema de voces, já estava irritado, então abri o monitor e desconectei a ligação com a placa de controle dos comandos dos botoes do menu. é fácil fazer. Só que não vai funcionar mais os botoes. pelo menos essas mesagens não vão mais incomodar.

OSD (On Screen Display) lockout. To resolve the issue you can hold the power button of the monitor until you get another message something similar to "OSD unlocked"
