Having problems with your Dell E176FP 17" LCD Monitor ?

Dell E176FP Monitor Stuck in diagnostic mode??

\015 Dell E176FP Monitor is in ''forever'' self-diagnostic loop. It runs a checkerboard pattern, then a multi-colored squares pattern, then some sort of vertical colored bars pattern, and I think horizontal colored bars pattern, and then a full screen two-part blue that looks like a wave of slightly different shades, etc.. and seems to be running through some preset screen patterns. The problem is.. you can't turn the power off while it is doing this! It does it whether connected to the computer or not.. all you need to do is plug it in.. you can turn it off temporarily if you move it, then plug it in.. the patterns come up, then you can turn it off..ONCE. If you turn it back on again, the patterns come up again, and then you CAN'T turn it off!.. except by pulling the plug. What's up? Is it ''toast''? Need a new one? It's useless at this point. It never stops running those patterns! HELP!\015
