It means the display is in power save mode. This status occurs when the display is on but not receiving any signal.

Monitor flashes logo and then turns black.with red lights on


Here's some tricks I would try. Something here, might help...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your monitor on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

Black display


You say black display. Not sure what you mean. Either the monitor is working or it is not. If you see nothing on the monitor and the power light is yellow, then it is not getting a signal.
If the power light is green and you see nothing, look really closely. You might even shine a flashlight at the monitor to see if there is actually a dim display. If so, the backlight has gone out and needs to be replaced.
I'm assuming that you have tried to brighten the display with the monitor controls.

My ADC monitor will not come on but the power light flashes yellow. Does this mean my monitor is shot? Is there a way to check it? The power adapter is still putting out 12 V. Thanks, Bob


Flashing yellow light usually means it is not getting the video signal from the PC, try it on other PC first to narrow it down the problem, bad VGA cable can also be the cause, last will be problem in the monitor itself which you will need to open up to inspect the inside. Post back what you find so we can helpou more. More likely to be bad backlights inverter board.
