The display shutting down with orange flashing means a safety was trigerred, does the led blink following a specific pattern ?
edit: oh, and when the monitor did briefly display an image, did it look "normal" or was there any obvious anomaly ?
Thanks again for the detailed explanations. The led blinks once every two seconds I would say(video attached). I have tried to search for the meaning of the blinking led patterns of this monitor but I wasn't able to find anything. For the brief second it was there the image looked ok in terms of color and brightness but was very low res (640x480). What I didn't explain in my first post is that when I first got the monitor it had the well known G2 problem and also the only resolution it would display was 640x480. I decreased the G2 voltage and it worked normally for a few hours. It was little out of focus and had a little convergence in the corners but other than that the monitor was ok. Then after a few hours the it turned off with the led blinking the same way as now. I have restarted it and it worked for a minute or two but again it wouldn't take any other res than 640x480. It turned off again and I started looking for information on the issue. The next time I tried to turn it on it was in the state I described in my first post here(retracted image, overly bright, not taking any signal).
