How to enable a secondary monitor, using the Dell Monitor: Front Buttons

If the Monitor is in no-signal mode (indicator: screensaver test image floating across the screen, may be color test or single color like message below) ,

MONITOR-POWER-SAVE

try to press front button: icon “monitor with incoming arrow” AKA the ”input selector” (may be leftmost or the 2nd button from the left), to help the monitor detect the input signal ( setting “Autodetect” should do just this, but seems to fail).

presenter-monitor-buttons

This has been tested to work (turn the monitor on to display a signal received in a dual monitor setup) on the dual monitors connected to both the LRC teacher and reception desk computers.
