Thumbs up

Sounds like it is a problem with the button on the inside of the monitor.

So you might have to open it up and have a look or buy a new one.

It's not a problem with the button it's a feature to stop accidently turning the monitor off. This is set in the OSD menu which can also be locked.

Try these options, they are'nt for your LCD and the wording/symbols may be different but may unlock your buttons, if not try a few combinations, you get the idea.

Option 1: OSD lock - all 4 buttons are locked except the "POWER"
button. Press and hold the "MENU" and ">" buttons for 3
seconds to lock the buttons. Repeat this step to unlock.

Option 2: OSD & Power button lock - all 5 buttons including the
"POWER" button are locked. Press and hold the "MENU"
and "<" buttons for 3 seconds to lock all 5 buttons. Repeat
this step to unlock.
