Thank you to Charles Rawls who must know some magical SunSolve judo fu.
He sent a copy of the user's manual he claims to have found in some
hidden crevice of SunSolve. I can't find anything there.

The verdict: It appears my monitor is ill. I am supposed to count the
seconds between flashes and call my authorized Sun dealer to inform
them of the monitor's condition.

I'm thinking boat anchor.
