Question about iiyama ProLite E380S-S 15" LCD Monitor
When the monitor is connected and has power the screen shows a light grey colour and that is it.
SOURCE: colour changing
I found this on another site:
[QUOTE=numbnutjas]I had the same problem along with lots of others who bought this great prolite monitor.
Whenever you turn the power off for more than five seconds the monitor looses an important bit of info of a hidden menu. Iilyama are not keen on publicizing the fact their monitor has a bug!
Follow these steps very carefully, it might not work the first time but it does work I promise.
Make sure that the moniter power button is off.
Unplug monitor from mains ( the auto exit button should flash red after about five seconds and you hear a popping sound.)
plug monitor back in mains.
hold down + and - on the monitor
now hold down power button on monitor
let go of power when power button when the green led lights up
let go of + and - buttons
wait a few seconds and press menu, a hidden menu will appear in the top right
use the + and - buttons to move the hilighted option over the auto colour option in the menu
push the menu button.
It does work, but if you have any problems: email at : miamoo2038 at hotmail dot co dot uk

Dim or dark display can be caused by a faulty inverter board or faulty CCFL lamp. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp, the CCFL lamp is a miniture fluro tube and these dim with age.

When you have strange symptom like this, the first place to look will be the power supply section, look for bad caps (leaking/bulging tops) first.
