Question about KVM Switches
Hi, I saw your response to a forum question, I was wondering if you could help with this issue,
When I do the scrl-scrl up etc...It says: Analog input, cannot display this video mode. Does that make any sense to you?

press numlock twice. There may be other hotkeys, but that's the one that I use. Occasionally mine gets confused (because of reboots and hibernation) and I need to unplug the usb cables from each PC and then plug them back in. Then it works again.

The switch may be the problem but it also may be the monitors internal power supply. To check you can open the case by the little switch and remove the plunger ( the little pin that moves up and down) If you get a picture back then the switch is the problem and you will have to bend the flat spring up to give it a little more movement. I would be if the monitor is about 2-3 years old that the problem is in the power supply board. After a few years many LCD monitors have issues with the power boards blowing capacitors. It happens on desktop monitors and rack mount units too. If you have an external power adapter for the monitor check the voltage output and replace if it is not steady. If the power supply is internal to the monitor then you will need to open the case and check the capacitors for heat damage. Check our site at:
www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm for pictures of what to look for. Replace any that look like the pictures and you should be back going again. The values that you will need are going to be marked on the sides of the bad caps. Be sure to use a high temp replacement or the problem will be back in a month or two. If yo don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service of the monitor for $40 plus return shipping. If you have any questions just let me know.
I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

SOURCE: Avocent KVM switch keeps turning
the switch should beep if you switch between channels or Ports.
It seems that you might want to download the manual and try to reset the unit. If this doesn't work call their support. Avocent has free support as far as I know.
