I have an out of warranty x183H monitor, running on Windows XP, and have been experiencing issues getting it to 'warm up' and convey a picture. Usually, when turning on my monitor, the LED will flash an amber light for a couple of seconds, the ACER logo will show on the screen and picture will result after the LED turns blue.
Over the last few weeks, it's taken longer and longer for the flashing amber light to turn blue and get a resulting picture. This has increased in range from a few seconds to over an hour. This occurs whenever power is turned off or I go into standby. I kept the monitor on for a week or so, but needed to reboot for some updates and went the monitor went through the power cycle, I received the flashing amber light again. Instead of turning blue after a time, the LED will go completely, then return to flashing after a while. No picture results.
I've swapped out to a different monitor (using the same cables) and have no issue gaining a picture or any of the other problems I mentioned. Any thoughts on what might be the issue? Thanks.
