Power Button Lockout

I have an HP 2009m monitor, and I use a Mac.

The other night, I could not turn it off from the power button, so I had to turn it off from the surge protector.

Now when I try to use the power button to turn it off, I get an error message on the screen that says " Power Button Lockout".

I have not changed anything, so I have no idea why all of a sudden I cannot turn it off.

But I sure would like to, as going to the surge protector is a PITA!

 

Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

Re: Power Button Lockout

Hi,

 

Try the below suggestion:

 

Power Button Lockout is displayed.

The monitor's Power Button Lockout function is enabled.

Press and hold the Power button for 10 seconds to unlock the Power button function.

 

If the above doesn't work then try a monitor reset.  Unplug the monitor’s power cord and hold down the monitor’s power button for 30-60 seconds. Plug the monitor back in and power it up.

Re: Power Button Lockout

Try to hold 1 min.

Else - Try to reset monitor to factory configuration.
Unplug monitor from power and hold the power button for 60 sec.
Then plug the monitor back in and power it up.

Re: Power Button Lockout

Thanks. I already tried that. Now I just unplug in from the wall at night. Too poor for a new one. Have multiple sclerosis.

Also since I use a mac the menu items cannot be seleted to se to factory specs. But unplugging it works to save energy.

Re: Power Button Lockout

I have tried the 10 sec hold and the 1 minute hold and nothing works.

This looks like it is a big problem for many people. I have 6 samsung screens w/no problems and this was my first HP screen....looks like i may of made a big mistake!
