    My AOC monitor 21' has an on-screen display, but I'm wondering how its lock function works.

    Can you help me figure out how to lock and unlock the OSD?

    According to aoc page you need to do the following for one of the displays:

    OSD Lock Function: To lock the OSD, press and hold the MENUbutton while the monitor is off and then press power button to turn the monitor on. To un-lock the OSD - press and hold the MENUbutton while the monitor is off and then press power button to turn the monitor on.

    If it doesn't work try searching for your display on the page. Or check the manual you got with monitor.

    I was also caught in same problem, I figured out that configuration is different for different model of AOC, better you see your manual carefully.

    On my model, manual says, while monitor is off, press left key button and press monitor-on button together to lock/unlock the osd. [I know the post is older, just writing the answer, perhaps it helps someone.]

    My one is AOC. What I did is, First turn off the power button and then press the power and menu button together, if its shows on the display the OSD lock message then it means its hasn’t worked but if not then it means it worked... I tested this myself

    If your AOC e2343F is locked then just power off your screen and hold power and menu buttons together. Then you'll get your screen unlocked.

    I've been told that you can use a camera to look on the monitor and see whether there are some waves on the screen; that would be a way to check if the monitor is good or not. Is this true?

    I'm looking at my monitor with a mobile phone camera and I see some vertical waves going (if there is a white background)

    No. This is an artifact of the screen rendering.

    Your monitor draws the screen X times per second and your camera draws it Y times per second. If they where perfectly in sync the interference would disappear.

    This vertical waves don't tell anything about goodness of monitor...

    You can see vertical waves depending on screen refresh rate in Hertz (Hz). LCD standard rate is 60 Hz... You can try camera on 100 Hz and 200 Hz displays (3D image compatible) and you won't find any waves on it.

    Monitors main tech specs is view angle, response time (black to white, white to black), resolution and input interfaces. If you want play 3D games, you must buy 100Hz or 200Hz monitor. For standard games the 60Hz is quite enough.
