So on the OSD I've changed the input from auto to manual and to HDMI, but the problem is I don't have the HDMI cable. So now my monitor (iiyama ProLite X2483HSU) constantly displays "No signal detected!" and I can't get into On Screen Display to change input back to auto. Is there a key combination or something that can reset it back to the factory settings?

  • At the lower right hand edge of the screen can you find the menu button? What happens when you press it? There is a factory reset option in the menus, but if we can get you access to the menu changing the input should be enough. May 3 '14 at 20:03

    It turns out that the "AUTO" button pressed for 3 seconds brings up input selection window. Problem solved. May 3 '14 at 20:12
  • Have the same problem, but this will not work. My monitor is XB2783HSU. Jul 9 '15 at 15:47


Press the AUTO button for 2 seconds. Then select the input of your choice.

monitor reference

iiyama 24" LED ProLite XB2483HSU-B1 - 1920 x 1080 pixels - 4 ms - Format large 16/9 - Dalle AMVA+ - Pivot - HDMI - haut-parleurs - Noir

what I understand so far

From the moment I connect an HDMI input, the automatically selected input will always be HDMI. So if I plug a VGA input I got the "No signal detected!" message.

By pressing the AUTO button for 2 seconds, you can go back to manual input selection and choose VGA (D-sub) again.

See John Tetmaier answers.

  • Which idiot decided to add an often-used function to a button and not print it on the plastic!? Jan 17 '17 at 14:34

    I honestly thought my screen (B2483HSU) was defective (didn't auto-detect the signal via DP, couldn't enter menu via Enter button), but this did the trick. Confusing functionality and design decitions right there, but thanks to your advice all is good now.

  • This also works for the ProLite E2483HS

I had the same problem (switch the wrong input) but I solved it !

Computer on, screen plugged on it. No light on your screen (no blue or orange one) :

1) select UP and DOWN in the same time, as long as you can, and press once the power button ON. Up and down

2) Ok, "NO signal..." and the light is blue - still pressing UP and DOWN

3) And be careful! The light becomes orange and there, you have to select right now DOWN and 2 Down and 2

-> And there the light becomes again blue with the menu!!! You can take off your fingers, but beware you have 3 seconds to change your input.


I had a similar problem. I always got 'no-signal'. The only way to get the menu open seems to be when you have input-signal.

My solution:

I tried different cables like DVI, VGA, HDMI and the VGA worked for me, i got signal and i was able to change the input settings to auto.
