Glad you solved your problems, great ingenuity and info for everyone smile.gif

salut biggrin.gif

Dream seller said he can do an invoice with low value ( actually He proposed it when I asked for the invoice, but since the customs said that they also wanted the paypal payment history, it was not possible). But yeah, I think it's not very legal



for those who want to disassemble the achieva, it's a bit difficult (hope you will understand with my english biggrin.gif)

The first and hardest part is to separate the black bezel from the white one, the problem is that they are clipped and glued with double sided tape. You need to separate them in order to access to the screws that attach the white bezel to the housing.

(I made the photos during reassembling).

401

It is easier to pull it out if you do it from the inner side of the bezel, but you need to be very careful to not harm the panel, there is glue only at the bottom, and a little on the sides, so once you've pried open the botom, you're done. (uncliping is easy)

Now you have this :

401

just unscrew the screws tongue.gif

401

and then unclip the white bezel (from the outside of the bezel)

Now these 2 screws are the only ones that attach the panel to the housing :

401

lift up a little the panel from the botom or right side and you'll see the internal and where to unplug the cables to completely separate the panel from the housing.

Now, for fixing the buzzing sound :

the panel pcb (where are the buzzing chokes) is behind this :

401

I did not take a photo, but it's nearly the same as the catleap one (photo from ScribbyDaGreat) :

edit : better with some paint works tongue.gif

We can see one, the component with "220" written upside-down, the other one is hidden under the little black square foam, cover them with epoxy glue, and it will shut them up. 100% success on my monitor, which was quite loud. Now it's deadly silent.

130 EUR is around what I estimated for a real total tax as well: VAT + import duty + handling fees maybe

- VAT: 20 - 25% depending on your country
- Import duty on monitors from Korea: 11.6%
- handling fees: not sure about it.

So, basicaly everyone here pays +-100 usd when they pick up their monitors from post/fedex guy? omg

Why wasnt this mentioned more clearly in the start page.

Thanks man.

Altho 20-40 eur is still a big summ for me, it's bearable compared to 120.

Without. With glass has lots of dust behind the panel. Glass was intended to block the monitors from Korean gamers' rage or something.

Picture guide please? You could also post it in the catleap club if you wouldn't mind - Thanks thumb.gif

And that epoxy trick CharlesK is genius thumb.gif

We can see one, the component with "220" written upside-down, the over one is hidden under the little black square foam, cover them with epoxy, and it will shut them up. 100% success on my monitor, which was quite loud. Now it's deadly silent.

Scribby has a teardown guide already posted in the Catleap thread; to get the front bezel (and glass) off, you follow steps one and two. I can show something a bit more detailed, but I won't have time until tomorrow afternoon.
