Dead pixel are like 20% fixable 80% non-fixable. You have to massage it with a cloth (microfiber) gently putting little presure but the chances are really low of getting rid of it.

Yeah, I had one on a BenQ 24" that wouldnt go away. A bunch formed around it later which all went away with pressure, though.

There are two separate models though, the WTS-2405W (labelled 110 and 220V, included with the Catleap, mine outputs 18V and my monitor does not work!) and the WTS-2405 (labelled 220V only, found on ebay for $10 shipped.)

Unfortunately, I noticed the 2405/2405W difference after buying it. The picture was blurry and, the first time, i read what I hoped it said and not what it actually did.

So I also bought a 300W 110 > 220V step up transformer for $25.

I am really hoping that some combination of these will give me 24V output and that will get this monitor to work again. Otherwise, all I've done is turn a $360 lesson into a $395 lesson.

OK I'm really starting to think the power brick is faulty. I gave the monitor another try just in case today, after I unplugged and gave up again I tested the voltage on the power brick and it's down to 7v. Seems it's dying very quick.

Maybe it's a fluke but it does give me some hope. The replacement brick I bought was shipped today USPS priority and should be here thursday or friday at the latest.

I just bought the same brick and it should be here Friday. I talked to my dad for a little bit about the problem I'm having and he was shocked that people were able to get the monitor to run at all with the 230v adapter.

Mine says 110-240v on it for input, so it should have been OK. Apparently, just defective.
