This is always the hard part for we Experts here at FixYa. As you may have read in the Terms of Service you agreed to 'not everything can be fixed with consultations'.

When you press the menu for the OSD, and you don't receive it your monitor is just about terminal. The only resort you have is to return this for service if you are still under warranty. There is a small circuit board that, in the absence of a fuse, will sacrifice itself to protect the rest of the components. This can only be serviced at a authorized service center.

Westinghouse only has a one year warranty, if you qualify they want you to bring it to a service center.

So if you are or aren't in warranty you want to call this number to find a service center near you.
Westinghouse Digital Electronics at (866) 287-5555

Sorry I can't give you better news than this. And just for the record we don't like trying to help, we are here to help and fix your problems. Perhaps in the future we can actually fix a problem for you.

If you find this information helpful please rate it so. Thanks.

"OSD LOCKED" box on my screen

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.

OSD stands for "On Screen Display." It is an onscreen configuration menu included with various monitors. When you press the MENU button or one of the other buttons on the front or side of a monitor, the onscreen display may appear. The OSD typically includes monitor calibration options, such as brightness, contrast, and color adjustments. Some OSDs may also include horizontal and vertical position controls as well as tilt and keystone adjustments.
If you can't make adjustments to the monitor settings using the OSD interface, the onscreen display may be locked. You may also see the phrase "OSD Locked" appear when you try to change the settings. Some monitors include an option within the menu called "OSD Lock", which you can turn on or off. If this option is available, simply turn OSD Lock off and you will be able to make adjustments to the settings.
If your monitor does not include the "OSD Lock" option, you may be able to unlock the OSD by pressing and holding the MENU button on the front or side of the monitor for several seconds. If you try this method, be patient! It may take up to 15 seconds for the OSD to unlock.

I can't get my icons and taskbar to center on my monitor. The start button is off screen to the left. How do I center everything so I can access them?

Press the OSD (On Screen Display) button on the monitor.
Use the UP/DOWN and LEFT/RIGHT buttons to navigate through the menu, to get to the "horizontal position" menu.
Press the OSD button to "select" that setting.
Press the LEFT/RIGHT buttons to "move" the image LEFT/RIGHT.
Press the OSD button to "apply" the new location.
Wait a few seconds, and the OSD menu should close itself.

When i press the power button to turn off monitor, i get a power button lockout message. how do i unlock the power button

I did not see anything regarding to the Power locked out function, may be it's time to call HP. Please post back what you find out from HP.
I look at HP WEBSITE:

Locking OSD settings
When the OSD is locked, settings cannot be changed in the OSD menu. The OSD functionality is enabled or disabled by pressing the Menu button and holding it for 10 seconds. Upon disabling the OSD, an OSD Lock-out message is displayed for 10 seconds. When the OSD is locked and an OSD menu button is pressed, the OSD Lock-out message is displayed for an additional 10 seconds. When the OSD is locked, pressing the OSD menu button for 10 seconds unlocks the OSD and displays the main menu. Identifying monitor conditions
Special messages display on the monitor screen for the following monitor conditions:
  • Input Signal Out of Range : Indicates the monitor does not support the input signal because the resolution and/or refresh rate are set higher than the monitor supports. Recommended refresh rates are as follows:
    • For the w1858 monitor: 1366 x 768 @ 60 Hz.
    • For the w2338h monitor: 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz.
  • Monitor Going to Sleep : Indicates the screen display is entering a sleep mode.
  • Check Video Cable : Indicates a video input cable is not properly connected to the computer or monitor.
  • OSD Lock-out : When the OSD is locked, the warning message OSD Lock displays for 10 seconds.
  • No Input Signal : Indicates the monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer on the monitor video input connector. Check whether the computer or input signal source is off or in the power-save mode.
  • Auto Adjustment in Progress : Indicates the auto-adjustment function is active and in process.

My monotor its all black but u can

This should be an (LCD) screen. They are the ones that usually have this kind of problem. You will need to take it to have it checked if the problem is the VGA signal cable leading to the monitor. They will check if it is properly connected or has gone bad. It is very unlikely that the screen is bad. When this VGA signal cable goes bad it could result in a totally blank screen.

No plug in play... don't think their dead... do I need drives first?

no country stated or if not usa what is your line power?(volts AC)
your PSU is inside monitor not outside, so uses a simple line power cord. (just wires)
12 year old monitors, found, (dead)
page one of your user guide is clear, read it yet?
seems not.,
Auto-ranging, 90 to 265 VAC
1280 x 1024 @ 60 Hz, 75 Hz (never higher) resolution settings.
those are very old monitors.. worth like $10 used.
if the power lamp shows wrong, the monitor is dead.
right button is power to the right of it is a power led that must glow.
the old monitors had CCFL backlamps before year 2010.
those are back lamps, that fail fast. 20k hours, fast. (short)
first is the power switch
2nd is a working PC with at least sync signals on 2 pins
then the OSD screens work of not the monitor IS DEAD.
inside this OLD monitor is sleep time, turn if off with OSD menu's its nothing but trouble.
some have an OSD lock, so hold the menu key for 10 seconds
and it unlocks. button 2 from left is MENU.
see page 4-10
the guide is here. not too good , poor diagnosis sections


power it on, LED power , glows.
with a PC working, say running any BIOS screen only....
or running, windows, in low resolution mode 1280 x 1024
if wise set the pc up to that first. not second.
then plug in the vga cable so the MOnitor only sees that signal above. (if you do above wrong, monitor shows OUT OF RANGE on the screen)

at mon.
PUSH the OSD button, menu, if OSD is dead the montor is dead.
OSD= on screen display., (yes the LDC has brain inside)
then take a flash light . point it at screen
see data now, if yes, in the beam is data the back lamp is dead
as are most 12 years old montors now.

see those 4 cream colored connectors bottom of this PCB
those are the high voltage CCFL lamps.
2 lamps 4 ends. the lamps are bad or the board 500 to 1000vdc
power supply is dead.

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

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.
