What does osd lockout mean and how do i get the box off my computer

Lockouts occur when the software driving the OSD encounters a problem or conflict--akin to your PC's operating system freezing.
Follow this link for more info:

Basically you have Four options to solve an OSD lockout.

Fix One: Plug in the monitor and power it up. Hold down the Power button until you get a message saying "OSD Unlocked". If the problem persists after OSD is unlocked then unplug the monitor from the wall, wait 20 seconds and try again.

Fix Two:
Turn on the monitor and hold down the Menu button for 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.

Fix Three:
Turn off the monitor, press down the Menu button and then turn on the monitor. Wait 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.

Fix Four:
The Menu button may be stuck in a pressed in position. To get it "unstuck" you'll usually need to open up the monitor. This could be tricky unless you know what you're doing. Unfortunately there are too many models of monitor for me to provide detailed instructions. If you have warranty this is where you want to contact the manufacturer.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Cannot get osd lockout to go away, have tried everything My hp w1907 monitor is goofed up. A little box keeps popping up that say osd lockout and I can't get it to stay off. Have reset monitor to...

My HP w2408 monitor. I just fixed this issue about 5 mins ago after getting tierd of whacking the buttons with anything handy. There are 2 slots on the underside of the monitor, in between the black frame and silver outer frame. Stick a flat screw driver and use a motion as if to literally pull the black frame away from the monitor. Use caution and dont stick the screw driver too far in. You will hear it pop. Do the same to the other side. There are multiple tabs arond the frame including one in the bottom center. Keep pulling on the free ends of the frame till all the tabs come off. Now you will see the buttom assembly, disconnect the small white connector from the montior. If you dont care for the buttons, which if you have a w2408 or any such model you will never use (auto detects input and auto adjusts) then just pop the frame back on. If you want to go further remove the 2 screws on the button assembly pull down on the silver frame to remove the button assembly. I did not go further then this but i read somewhere that if you wash the assembly in some liquid it will work again. I am guessing some good acohol from walgreens will do. For me I am just glad the message when away.

Osd lockout


This message occurs when the Menu button on the front panel is pressed for more than 10 seconds. OSD lockout prevents the OSD menu from opening on the screen when a button is accidentally pressed.

To remove the OSD Lockout message, release the Menu button (if something was pressing against it), and press and hold the Menu button again for about 10 seconds - until the message goes away. If the OSD Lockout message does not go away, the button may be stuck or the hardware behind the button might have become defective.
I hope it helps.
