Question about Compaq FP 7317 17" LCD Monitor

Compaq FP 7317 LCD Monitor

The monitor's display menu comes up without the menu button being pressed. The menu will sometimes seem to operate itself, then the small white window will come up saying "OSD Lockout". I can't turn the monitor off and unplugging and replugging doesn't work. It's a little creepy. What's going on?

Check the buttons on your monitor for possible shorts. Sometimes pressing a sequence of buttons while turning the monitor on will lock the OSD.

My SAMTRON 56v monitor is having a problem. The Monitor's menu appears by itself. It was discussed in a previous description but not resolved. It shows the control lock window and will fluctuate between...


I'm not sure about the locked/unlocked bit, I assume that you use the menu button to cycle through the two.

I've had a similar problem on a IIyama 19" monitor. The menu kept flashing up randomly all the time. I discovered that it was due to the menu button being faulty, I removed it and it works perfectly again, still haven't gotten a new one for it yet.

it's under warranty then send it back to be fixed, although you'll probably have to pay for it to be sent back etc. If not then you have two options.

1. Pay a tv repairman or similar to fix it for you. Possibly the most expensive option.

2. You could remove/replace it yourself if you're handy with electronics, or know someone who is. The part itself is called a tactile switch and should cost around £1 if you live in the UK. Make sure you get the correct one as they come in different heights and orientations.

Should look something like this:

Tools
-------
1. Soldering iron - 40w+
2. Solder - not acid core
3. Phillips and flathead screwdrivers

Instructions
--------------
1. Unplug monitor and open case, you may need to carefully lever the case off with the flathead screwdriver.

2. Find the little board with the buttons on, and identify the menu button.

3. Very carefully heat up the contacts on one side with the soldering iron, you'll probably have to do the two contacts at the same time, and rock the switch the other way, then do the other side, keep doing this until the switch comes out.

4. Either test without switch first or just replace with new switch. Make sure it's securely seated, correctly, and soldered in. Make sure the solder is neat, tidy and doesn't contact anything else.

5. Replace casing and test. If it doesn't work then you'll have been a bit messy with the solder, tidy it up and try it again.

Osd main controls locked


*NOTE* This answer was actually found on another source.
The easiest solution to try is to reset the on screen display in the menu. Hold down the Menu button (it is probably marked Ok) for at least a minute. A menu list will appear on your monitor screen. Using the adjust button, press the arrows to enter the menu. Scroll down to the Reset section. On the right side of your screen, you will see an alternating Yes/No choice. When the Yes message flashes, press the Ok button. The menu should be reset and the flashing OSD control message should disappear.

If resetting the OSD doesn't work, then you probably have a physical problem with your Menu button. Sometimes, particularly on older machines, the connections to the circuit board are dirty or failing. Because you have to actually get into the monitor itself, you will probably void any remaining warranty by attempting this fix. If your monitor is still under warranty, contact the manufacturer to see if there is a local repair shop that can help you.

If you want to tackle this issue yourself, grab a screwdriver and take the plunge. Remove the casing on the monitor itself and locate the contact switch for the menu button on the circuit board. Sometimes, just working it with your fingers or a screwdriver is enough to unstick it - you can try to clean off any dust or grime that has accumulated around it to see if that is the cause.

Stupid padlock/main menu keeps opening and closing DELLe152fp


That is the OSD (On Screen Display) system built-in to your computer monitor. Check that when you hit the ON/OFF button on your monitor, that you do *NOT* hit the 'OSD ON/OFF' button.

Most of the time, the OSD will disappear after 10 seconds of "non-use".

Blank White Screen - No Menu Showing


My Sansa has a similar problem. Sometimes when the Sansa turns on (after the Sandisk logo) the screen will either turn black, blue, or black and white stripes. The player still works, but it is hard to navigate without the screen, obviously. What I end up doing is letting the backlight turn off and then pressing any button. Sometimes when the screen comes back, the display is allright again. But sometimes it takes more than a few tries. Turning it off and on again seems to work a little better, but it is more time consuming.
