OSD lock on permanently

I have a Dell E171 Flat Panel Monitor & at switch on a menu appears, totally ignores my attempts to press menu buttons & is replaced by a lock which opens and closes at will.It's stuck right in the middle of the screen & refuses to go. Can anyone help?

I'm guessing its a fairly new monitor so your first port of call should be Dell. It does sound like a fault and may need to be replaced.

You could try removing all the cables, and then leaving for a bit and then turning back on again. Its unlikely to make a difference.

May be worth checking no buttons have got stuff on the screen of anything else not as it should be.

Thanks. Dell replaced the monitor without any fuss
