Question about Dell W2300 23 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
While watching the monitor I saw some flickering with an OSD menu in the background. Then the LOCK icon came on. I've tried holdong down the menu button but no luck. I powered down then disconnected all cables...then tried again...same thing but now it says component on the left top corner...when I press any function the LOCK Icon comes on... ant ideas?
Accoreding to the dell support website, it says to do this
NOTE: You can also lock or unlock the OSD by pushing and holding the Menu button for 15 seconds. In this mode All buttons will be locked including the "Menu" button. You can unlock by pushing and holding the Menu button for 15 seconds.

I solved this problem by pressing and holding the MENU button for around 15-20seconds, after this the lock icon will change to an unlocked icon. Press the button that only makes the Menu come up, not the buttons that + or - values on the sliders, I have taken a picture too. I have highlighted which button you should press in red.

Other people have been saying to press the menu button for 15, 20 or 30 seconds, but it didn't work for me. I did notice that the icon did go away after about 5 seconds but then came back as soon as I took my finger off the button. I opted for the What ever Works way of breaking the end off of a tooth pick, pressing in the button and then jamming the tooth pick into the space between the button and the bezel to hold the button down.
