I have recently purchased the Omen 27i monitor. For the first couple of hours, all was working great regarding the external lighting, however, after a restart the lighting refuses to turn on. I have suspicisions that it stopped working following the installation of the Omen Gaming Hub in the background (I do not like this behaviour one bit).
I can change the settings within the Omen Gaming Hub application as well as within the OSD menu and can set them to 'on' but the lights do not actually turn on. Tried all settings (static, task light, colour cycle etc etc) but no luck
So far, I have tried uninstalling / re-installing the Omen Gaming Hub application, installing the HP System Event Utility (as was suggested in previous posts about this same issue) as well as installing the monitor drivers. So far, nothing has rectified my problem.
Can anyone help me with getting my monitor's external lighting to work, once and for all?
*Edit* - I think I have fixed the problem. I removed the HDMI cable from port 2 of my graphics card so only 27i was plugged in. Uninstalled the Omen Gaming Hub and did a number of factory resets. Eventually the lighting came back on. Will not touch Omen Gaming Hub again.
Thanks for your reply. I figured there's a conflict with the hardware controls and gaming hub, but trying to determine where is proving to be a nightmare.
It's happened a couple of times since my 'fix' and I've found that by doing a factory reset when all devices are off (apart from the monitor) brings it back so I can control the lights. Someone else might find this information useful.
