Re: OSD Lockout on my desktop monitor

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.

Re: OSD Lockout on my desktop monitor

I tried all that, but still didn't worked but i found a solution, i open the monitor and cut the yellow cable which leads you to the menu of the monitor and now the osd lockout doesnt appear anymore, it looks like those button get stuck and doesnt work anymore so this is the best solution for now.

Re: OSD Lockout on my desktop monitor

Stuck buttons is one of the issues with some HP monitor models.

Re: OSD Lockout on my desktop monitor

This document pertains to LCD monitors .
One of the following messages appears on the screen (over the items being displayed).
OSD Lockout
OSD Lock-out
... or similar message.
This message occurs when the Menu button on the front panel is pressed for more than 10 seconds. OSD lockout prevents the OSD menu from opening on the screen when a button is accidentally pressed.
  NOTE:  The button may be different and the procedure might vary on some monitors. Please check your monitor User Guide to find the exact procedure if this procedure does not work.
To remove the OSD Lockout message, release the Menu button (if something was pressing against it), and press and hold the Menu button again for about 10 seconds - until the message goes away. If the OSD Lockout message does not go away, the button may be stuck or the hardware behind the button might have become defective.
