OSD lock - I think

I have a 2002 eMachines monitor, eView 171, and I think the OSD screen is locked. It's a small, blue area in the middle of the screen with icons in it, one is OSD. I have no idea how this happened and the solutions I've found online indicate the Menu button is to be held in for 10-15 seconds but I don't know where the Menu button is. There's no Menu button on the front of the monitor, just OSD, brightness, and something called adjust.

This screen will appear when the computer is off and I uplug, then plug in the power source to the monitor. When I then turn on the computer, the monitor turns off.

Help! And thanks in advance.

    OSD wont go off "Smart Image" off. The demo mode wont go off and the buttons at the bottom right of the screen don't respond on at all on more that 20 monitors we have.

My monitor has a line down the middle with a shadow on one side of theline and I have osd locked on the screen and cannot get the program to show on screen to fix it


Vertical line down a monitor with a shadow genearlly is an indication of a video cable problem. Try removing the video cable from the computer and if it is still there and OSD is still locked it is an internal logic circuits problem

Hi...there,
I thinks your OSD Setting time set to high... Open on screen display on your monitor, go to OSD Settings and look for OSD hold time and setting to 10 seconds. If that doesn't work...reset to Factory Resettings.

My computer screen has a blue box that pops up and say "Controls locked". I am assuming that the buttons on the bottom right hand corner of my moniter is what it is talking about because when I hit the...


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

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=324216&os=228&lang=en&

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.
