Having problems with your Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor ?

I have a Dell E173FP LCD monitor and everytime I try to access the OSD menu a lock appears on the screen. What is the solution to this problem?


Answers :

Hi,
\015\012Thanx for your help. That should work too, but I tried pressing the menu for 15 seconds and it unlocked.
\015\012Thanx again
I have the same problem. I have spent alot of time\015\012diagnosing it. It is the button assembly\015\012malfunctioning.. The button assembly needs to be replaced but I have\015\012looked everywhere for a replacement part but none cane be found because\015\012none are sold. It sucks. If you take the case off you can see and\015\012remove the button assembly fairly easily. I think if your are good at\015\012soldering, the best thing (and only thing you can do) is to purchase\015\012individual replacement buttons, remove the old buttons and solder new\015\012ones onto the board. I am really bad at soldering so i will never do it.\015\012I hope this helps.
