    The monitor displays this even without a computer connected too it.

    the monitor only has a display port connection unfortunately.

    the previous screen didnt suffer with this, it had dead pixels in 4 locations and what looked like dirt behind the screen and was sold as new but was actually second hand.

    The front power on/off to the screen doesnt work and none of the buttons along the front work, no menus etc come up.

    It looks like demo mode to me, but if none of the OSD buttons are working I don't suppose you'd be able to tell.

    just tried a different dp connection on the gpu and no difference, which i didnt expect it too as it happens with nothing connected as above.

    I turn the switch on at the back of the panel near the mains connection on the monitor and the panel just turns straight on as the front power button does nothing, no lighting up or anything.

    Looks like the signalling board has given up the ghost. Send it back.

    I must be lucky, mine (touch wood) has been fine. Jinxed that.

    Yep, if the buttons aren't working it has to go back regardless...

    Heh, bye bye monitor :)

    Why do I still want one of these screens?

    This monitor is so good! Ordered one on Monday arrived Tuesday with half a green screen :( Disappointing as it is a superb monitor and was looking forward to playing some games on it. RMA'd on Wed.

    People who have RMA'd how long has it taken for a new one to arrive?

    Yeah this seemed to happen to me, the packaging looked re-packaged like it had been previously returned and sent out again! Not impressed!
