I've never even heard of theft mode...

Translation error, perhaps.

What was the exact full wording of the message?

The only thing Dr. Google revealed was some monitors having a "theft mode" than needed some strange front panel button presses to reset.

Try connecting the Raspberry to some other TV/monitor.
