I know you said there were others that had the same problem with the Main Menu coming up and I thought I would tell you what I did to fix the problem.

1. I shut down the PC.
2. I removed the power cable and video cable from the back of the monitor.
3. I removed the four screws that hold the stand for the monitor and slid the stand off.
4. I then removed the 5 screws that hold the back cover on the monitor.
5. I took two flat blade screw drivers and carefully removed the back cover.

At the bottom of the monitor case, there is a small circuit board the holds the 6 switches for controlling the display.

6. I located the button that calls up the Main Menu. It is the second switch from the left as you are looking at the monitor from the rear.
7. I used a small solder iron and heated up the four prongs in sequence while holding the switch with a pair of needle nose pliers. I had to rotate this process from one prong to the other while all the time applying slight pulling pressure on the switch pulling it away from the circuit board.
8. Once the switch was removed, I put the cover back on and tightened up the five screws.
9. Then I slid the base back in the slot it came from and tightened the four screws.
10. I connected the video and power cable and turned on the PC.

With the switch removed the Main Menu never popped up again and I am so very happy.

I've got the same problem and holding the menu button for 10 seconds does not help because either osd lockout keeps popping up or the osd menu.

I had the same problem yesterday.
I have a BENQ 22" flatscreen with Winfast PX7600 GT NVIDIA graphic card..
These were the symptoms.
1. Yesterday the "INPUT DVI" and "INPUT SUB D" message window kept popping up simultaneously and my monitor kept going black as if its switching between modes. After restarting a few times. That message stopped. but then....
THEN!!!!! the monitor display menu started popping up..repeatedly and I started screaming profanity at the computer. All the help page that I found online were about the monitor itself being faulty. Holding on to the menu button seemed to fix the problem..temporarily.

TESTING FIRST.
My bf suggested that I hook up the monitor to my laptop and work on the laptop for a while and see if the same thing will happen..coz..if the monitor works fine..then..its not the monitor..its the driver..if the monitor still going stupid..then its the monitor...duh.
6 hours later BEHOLD!!! Its NOT the monitor.

SOLUTION!!!!
!!!!!!REINSTALL THE MONITOR DRIVER!!!! NOT THE GRAPHIC CARD DRIVER!!!!!

SO!!!
1. find the driver for ur monitor. whatever brand it is. Mine was on the original cd with user manual and such.

2. go into to Control Panel>Sytem>Hardware>Device Manager

3 locate MONITOR and expand it. Whatever's there double click to open.

4. click on Driver tab, Click on Update Driver
The hardware wizard might come up. can let it find it for u if u want. If it doesn't find it..then..in the next step,

5. click on Install from a list or specific location. The u specify ur cd-rom drive or whereever ur monitor driver is. then let it install. should be pretty quick.

6. Restart just to make sure....if it screws up ur comp. u can always do the Rollback driver by going into the same steps.


It worked for me. So hopefully it will help u too

good luck

I have a hp 1502 i bought second hand and everytime you pushed the menu button "OSD Lock out" would pop up. After going through all the solutions on here i had to do a combination of them to get it off.

First i had to turn my monitor off, then i pushed and held the menu button for a good solid 30 seconds. Nothing pops up to confirm if this worked so you wont know. After counting 30 seconds i pushed the power button back WHILE STILL holding the menu button in. Once the screen was on again and fully warmed up i released the menu button, pressed it once more as if to access the menu and the menu finally popped up. Hope this helps :D

To lock the OSD, press and hold the Menu button while the monitor is off, and then press the Power button to turn the monitor on.
To unlock the OSD, repeat the locking procedure.
This took me several tries before it worked. So keep trying.

Hp w2007 lcd monitor, osd lockout & main menu display


Once you realize that resetting it doesn't work (as I did ) take it apart. This instruction is for an hp w2007 only! It's the one I just fixed. Remove the three screws holding the base on. The one in the middle is hard to see because it's in a hole but readily accessible. Remove the black back cover by inserting a skinny screwdriver between it and the gray housing. Start in the middle on any of the four corners.Pry it up and work your way to the corners. At the corners pry up with more force and the plastic tabs will snap off. Trust me, just do it!! Once you have snapped the plastic tab at all four corners the back will lift right off. locate the three small wires that go into the menu, -, +, select switches. Cut the three wires and tape them off separately. Do this so they can't touch the case or each other. Do to the wires that are going back toward the monitor! The ones going to the switch do not need to be taped. The switches are now dead. Is that clear? Cut the wires going to the switch and tape the cut ends that go back to the monitor. You will no longer be able to manually adjust anything but I never used the adjustments anyhow. The PC will take care of it for you. I did this 8 hours ago and it's still working perfect! Before I made the fix I was getting OSD Lockout, no input signal, it was scrolling through the menu and the screen was going blank every 5 minutes!! It will work!!!
