2407WFP, PSM, flashes red, green, blue, black, white, repeat

Hello,

My 2407WFP won't go into power save mode, even when the computer is turned off. (It used to do this properly).

When the computer sleeps, is powered off, or when the cable is unplugged, the monitor will full-screen flash Red, Green, Blue, Black, White, then go to sleep for about 5 seconds. It then repeats this sequence instead of just going to sleep/standby.

Different computers, different cables, no changes. Is it possible it is in some sort of self-test mode?

Thanks.

darhouness,

Are you saying that Burn In mode in the Factory Menu was disabled and that powering the monitor off/on, turned Burn In mode back on?

Not on a monitor. If under warranty, get it replaced.

Chris,

I have this same exact problem on my 2408WFP, and I haven't messed with any settings since I got it.  It just started flashing instead of going to sleep one day.  Can you please post a fix for me?

Thanks

We have a 2001FP monitor that is behaving in the same fashion. In power-save mode, it flashes a full screen red, blue, green panel and then repeats. I have plugged the monitor into a different computer with different power and D-sub connectors. Please provide the solution. Thanks!

MIEric,

* Switch the monitor off
* Disconnect all monitor cabling from the PC (VGA, DVI, HDMI, DP, USB, etc.)
* Disconnect the monitor power cord from the rear of the monitor
* Press and hold the monitor power button in for 5 seconds
* Reconnect the monitor power cord to the rear of the monitor and reconnect the monitor to the computer
* Switch the monitor on and then the computer
* If the issue still persist, it is defective
