Acer KG272S Display problem-very bright and distorted colors even when HDMI/DP cable is disconnected

I bought my acer monitor 14 days ago and out of nowhere picture just went from normal to distorted. Instead of black and blue colors I get bright white and red/pink. So far I tried connecting to another PC, changed ports and cables, power cycling but nothing works. I have 2 monitors and the other one works perfect. Also it shows very bright and distorted colors even when HDMI/DP cable is disconnected (instead of black background with acer logo it shows extremely bright white background with light green logo) so it suggests a faulty monitor. What can I do?

  • Hello! Can you still exchange the monitor at the store you bought it from?

    Technically I can because it comes with 2 year warranty but the problem is that I bought it in another country while on a vacation and claiming warranty is not a couple hours process so I would need to stay there for couple of days or to travel there again to pick it up and that's why I was hoping that there was another way to fix it.

    You should definitely return the monitor to the retailer or Acer Services in your home country, Acer warranty is valid worldwide.
