OSD Main Menu Locked

Just bought a 17" Philips Magnavox 107S (cm2300) monitor at a flea market for $20.  Works great so far: color, no weird lines, or fuzziness.  As I tested the front panel buttons I found that the brightness & contrast work, however the main menu doesn't.  It displays "OSD Main Menu Locked".  Anyone out there wth this type of monitor that has the manual or knows how to remove the lock on the OSD?

    If you press and hold the OSD menu key for 10 or 15 seconds, that might unlock it.

    Thanks Sax.  After holding for 10 secs the "OSD menu locked" msg disappeared.  I kept holding it down for about 10 more secs & it displayed "OSD menu unlocked".
