Re: 2408WFP A01 POWER SAVE AND BLINKING ISSUES, STILL!!

My 2408 WFP only flickered three or fours times in the beginning, like yours.  I have uploaded the latest ATI driver for my ancient graphic card Radeon ATI X1650 256MB and installed the latest ATI Tray tools as Chris suggested. It has not made any difference that I could observe. My Dell 2001FP monitor did (and does) not blink with the same graphic card and PC. Other emails in this forum seemed to suggest that it could get worse as time went on.  So I decided to go in for an exchange, within the 21 days exchange grace period.  No guarantee that it will work.  Will report after I test the replacement.

Chris,

Thanks for your prompt reply.  I use 512MB ATI Radeon HD 4850.  Please don't forget that this worked properly with the S2309W monitor.

Thanks again.

I have a 2408wfp. I plugged in my Macbook Pro that uses a ATI RadeonX1600 graphics card.

DVI 1 goes into instant power save mode no matter what combination of power up/ screen resolution/ reboot machine combo's you do

DVI 2 works as expected.

What do you suggest?

Test DVI1 on another PC. If still no go, get it replaced.

If you only have a monitor order number, you should contact Customer Service.
If your monitor was purchased tied to a Dell PC, contact Technical Support.
They will need the following -
Name:
Email Address:
Shipping address:
Phone number:
Monitor Order number or PC Service Tag number if purchased with a PC:
Monitor 20 digit PPID number found on the back on a label or on the slider card on the left rear:
Operating system:
Video card:
Video card ports tested:
Reason:

Update on the exchange:

I got a new monitor for an exchange.  It worked well for more than two weeks.  Then all of a sudden this afternoon it started blinking continuously with the DVI icon staying on screen when I started Windows.  Fortunately it stopped after I toggled the on-off power button.  Will keep my fingers crossed.  It is almost scary.

Re: 2408WFP A01 POWER SAVE AND BLINKING ISSUES, STILL!!

 

Good afternoon Chris,

I have two 2408WFP monitors and am looking for a third.  The two I have are Revision A01 according to the tags on the back.  The CD's that came with them say A02 on the label, but when you open the file, the first page says Rev. A01 at the bottom.  My questions are:

1.  How can I tell for sure what Revision I have?

2.  Can the A01 Firmware be upgraded to A02?

3.  They were purchased on 10-03-08 with a Precision T3400 (Warranty expiration 10-6-2012), so can they be exchanged for A02 models?

I will PM you with all of the necessary info if need be.

Thanks,

Patrick

Re: 2408WFP A01 POWER SAVE AND BLINKING ISSUES, STILL!!

All,

I can extract alot of data from your post. What I need are the following sent to me in a Private Conversation to put in unified excel document which I will send to Displays engineering:
Dell PC Service Tag number or Retail PC
Monitor Order number
Video card
Video card driver version (Dell or Retail)
Dell or Retail video card
Operating system
How many monitor exchanges have you already received and what were those dispatch numbers?

Chris, I know it's only been a couple of months, but has there been any word from Displays engineering (I'm guessing many of us submitted replies with the requested information) on the continued issues revolving around the issue reported by numerous people?

Thanks!

-Jeremiah

Not on this issue. I take it you verified these were all enabled?

* The monitor USB cable must be plugged into a USB port on the rear of the PC
* Open the Device Manager (Press the Windows key and the Pause-Break key, Click the Hardware tab and the Device Manager button)
* Open Human Interface Devices
* Right click each one, click Properties, click Power Management
* Insert a check to "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby"
* Click OK
* Open Keyboards
* Right click each one, click Properties, click Power Management
* Insert a check to "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby"
* Click OK
* Open Mice and other pointing devices
* Right click each one, click Properties, click Power Management
* Insert a check to "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby"
* Click OK

I did not see Power Management in my properties.  I lap OS is windows XP.  IS this only apply to Windows VISTA?
