HP LP2275w 22-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor –  HP LP2275w 22-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor – Troubleshooting – c01508108 – HP Business Support Center.

While not the exact model in the title, the troubleshooting remains the same.

Have you mashed the power button on your Compaq or HP monitor?  Do you get an annoying Power Button Lockout message everytime you try to turn it off?

Power Button Lockout seems to be a safety/convenience feature built into Compaq and HP monitors.  If you push the power button too many times, you won’t be able to turn off the monitor.  To fix this, hold the power button for 10 seconds, or until the monitor turns off.

For more troubleshooting, check the above link.
