After moving my monitor several times, to view movies, I find I can't power it down. It's a 2009m
When I hit the power button, I get a message, "Power Button Lockout" -- and nothing happens.
I have to unplug it to get it to power down!
Apparently I pressed some combination of buttons on the monitor, that set this lockout.
but I can't find any directions, for resetting it.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Try a monitor reset. Unplug the monitor and hold down the monitor’s power button for 30-30 seconds. Plug the monitor back in and power it up. If that doesn’t work then go into the monitor’s menu and do a factory reset.
