From what Ive gathered the IPS variant only hade a DP port so the source would then be obvious. Is this correct?

Aye, it's DP only. Have you tried looking in the OSD for an option to turn it off?

Hi. First off I got the TN version so I'm wondering if there is actually any information out there about it. My main issue though is that I am unable to bring up the OSD unless the monitor has a signal as it goes to standby automatically after a few seconds and the OSD will not pop up in that time unless the monitor has signal. This means in order to change the source between HDMI and DP you need to have a device plugged in to both. I've had to have my xbox on or plug my PC in via hdmi just to switch the source to DP and now that my PC is currently disassembled and my monitor is set to DP I have no way of switching it to HDMI for use on my xbox or anything else, it is a brick. I asked on reddit and another owner said theirs does the same thing, is this the same with everyone and is there no way around it?

Yeah, not finding anything that sounds like it could be it. Might have to suffer with it but I really dont want to. It's the same with all the other settings Game Modes and whatnot, I just can't find proper information on it.

I'm using a single DP connection and I do not have this issue. Monitor starts with computer and I have all the time to go into OSD and change stuff if I wish to. Maybe try a different DP bort on your GPU if you have it, it seems like your monitor doesnt recognize that its connected to anything.

I don't think you understand what I mean, the ports work fine. My only DP device is my PC which is currently disassembled so it is right to not recognise it. The problem is I still have my xbox I want to use in the meantime which is HDMI. My monitor OSD will not show up unless I connect something via DP(which I can't do), so my monitor is stuck on DP mode and currently unusable. Try setting your monitor to DP then disconnecting the DP cable and connecting something via HDMI, then trying getting the monitor to switch to HDMI so you can actually use it, you will find you can't do it.

I hear you but I' not ready to go and take any chances with my own monitor, hehe. Either way I heard something from Acer Support that you can do a factory reset by holding down the Power Button(far right) for like 30 seconds. I actually think I remember hearing them saying that the monitor should be turned Off and unplugged but if you're willing, try both.

I will try the reset but unless that allows it to default to the source it receives signal from it won't make a difference, I'm pretty sure the monitor was set to DP by default. And there wouldn't be any risk to your monitor so long as you still have your PC available. It doesn't matter though because I just realised you probably have the IPS version which has Display Port only. This only applies to the TN version which has both DP and HDMI.

Presuming it's similar to the IPS version:
Gamma 1.9 or 2.2 are best. TFTC measured 2.1 with it set to 1.9 and 2.4 with it set to 2.2. You'll be a little under the target 2.2 or a little over depending on what you go with.
Brightness should be dropped to under 30, TFTC used 24. I run mine at 18 but my room lighting is probably a little darker than most people.
Color temp set to warm is closest to 6500K.
OD should be set to normal.


There's a very good chance that all the settings are very off for the TN version of this monitor. You'd need to measure it to know for certain.

Did you get your issues fixed? Cause I just might have found something, or maybe nothing.
