Hello,

I use this monitor at work, and it's very nice, but unfortunately the
front panel controls are all locked. A key symbol appears on screen
when I try to use them. I gather from the online manual that I'm meant
to be able to unlock them by pressing the menu button, but that's
locked as well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you can't access the OSD (On Screen Display) to get to the Option or
Reset menus, you are screwed. Did your IT department lock the monitors so
you couldn't mess with them? Grab your IT guy and have him unlock the
thing.

Scroll about 3/4 down the page for the specific unlock instructions:

The OP is not able to access the On Screen Display (OSD) to make the
necessary changes.

The it would appear he's farked. The manual shows a 2-key unlock
combination it appeared, rather than just pressing the menu button...
