Question about Computers & Internet
Try holding the power button or the menu button of the monitor for about 5 - 10 seconds. This should remove the OSD Lockout message. Consult your monitor's reference manual if you still have problems.

this could be a bad button connection or the osd IC chip is failing for some reason that would need to be tested to determine why.
so if you can take it apart then clean the button and the plastic of dirt , and check the contact button to see if it looks faulty or check it to see if it is making contact all the time
if those are not the problem then it is the IC chip and will need testing to find the culprit

Might be this...
For an OSD Lockout message, press and hold the Menu button for 10 seconds.
For a Power Button Lockout message, press and hold the Power button for 10 seconds.
But then this post says he had to hold it down for 25-30 seconds...

Press the "Menu" button again if the lockout message remains on the screen.
Use the arrow buttons to navigate through the main menu options.
Highlight the "Settings" or "OSD Menu" option and then hit the Menu key again to access the new list of settings.
Scroll down to the "OSD Lock" heading. Use the arrow keys to change the setting to "No." Hit the Menu key again to return to the main menu. Scroll to the "Exit" setting and then hit the Menu key a final time to exit the menu setting and remove the OSD lockout.
hope this helps
