Dell 5100MP DLP Projector MENU button not working or locked out

Hi,

I am trying to enter the menu of the projector by pressing the menu button on the projector control panel but nothing comes up. I even held it for 15 and more seconds per manual but no luck. Any ideas? Thanks

I have the same problem.

In my case it turned out to be the ribbon cable that goes to the control board with the buttons.

There is a ribbon cable between the LCD/Control panel and the main circuit board. I disconnected it, cleaned it, and reconnected it. Problem solved!

This also got rid of another issue: at every power up the LAMP and TEMP LEDs would illuminate and the LCD would read SW Upgrade. The only way around that was to unplug the cord. After re-seating the ribbon cable this went away as well!
