Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

My buttons to change monitor settings are locked out. When a button is pressed, ''osd locked'' is displayed. How do I unlock the monitor. Thanks for your help.


Answers :

On the monitor there is a menu button. Press and hold down on the Menu Button for approx. 10 seconds until you see the menu. This unlocks it. If you care to lock it again, just do the same thing. For the record, I have a HPw2207 monitor. Hope this helps. Jim
