What is the usual color of the LED during standby? Mine is definitely orange. Powering it off; and then on again, I get the blue light for a fraction of a second (+ white screen) followed by the orange light again.

I tried starting the monitor without the DVI-D cable; and it produced the same results. I was expecting to see a "No Input" message of some sorts; but alas nothing frown.gif. I'll see if I have a different DVI cable around.

When you open it without the DVI cable, does it say No Input in Korean or something?

Hopefully Red-Cap can send me a replacement without me having to pay shipping back for the monitor. He says on his e-bay page that they are tested for DOA before being sent...

I have an AMD HD 6950 at 2 GB. I'll try it out on the home HTCP; it has an 6850.

The white screen is not a good sign, that's what I've seen a few LCD's do right before and during their death. Hopefully not, but if it is, I wish you luck with the return. Either way, must be a real bummer if it is dead on arrival.

It strange that he says that, because I was pretty sure today that mine was unopened and untouched. Otherwise the proctecting paper and layers should have been opened and it was not.

Anyway, my LED is red on standby, not orange. When I turned it on today without the DVI cable plugged in, the screen was completely black... No message. That white light is definately a sign that something is wrong. I heard good stories about red-cap so most probably you will be treated fairly as you deserve... Good luck and let us know how it evolves

Wonderful news tongue.gif. I'm going through the english manual for the H727W; here's what I found:

"5. The power light is on but orange/amber
Make sure the signal cable is firmly connected both to the monitor & the graphics card.▪▪
Make sure your computer is switched on!"

I'm pretty sure they're well connected; but now this made me paranoid enough to try it; if only for some hope...

"The power light does not come on
Always switch on your monitor first then the computer.▪▪ Really? Does'nt it work if you don't?
Check that the power cable is firmly located in the socket at the rear of the monitor.▪▪
Make sure the power cable is plugged into the wall socket and that the socket is switched on.▪▪
Ensure there is no problem with the wall or extension outlet by trying another device.▪▪
Try a different power cable to make sure that the fuse has not blown or that the cable is damaged in ▪▪some way that you cannot see.
Finally try the monitor on another computer if possible."

"7. No image is being displayed on the monitor
Ensure all cables are correctly and firmly connected to both PC and the monitor.▪▪
Ensure graphics card is inserted correctly into the PCI, PCI-E or AGP slots of your PC.▪▪
Check whether the power is turned on for both the computer and the monitor.▪▪
Ensure graphics card mode is set appropriately (adjust resolutions if necessary).▪▪
Check to see if cable pins are bent or missing etc."

I'll do more testing tomorrow when I get some time. Hopefully I'll have a response from the seller then as well.

EDIT: If you power the Monitor without the DVI-D cable, do you guys get an orange led?

Can anyone confirm if this will work with a MacBook Pro?
On a few of the ebay adds, they are adement about mentioning that it will not work with laptops or MBP.
If it makes a difference, I have a 2011 15" i7 model.

You need the Apple Dual-Link DVI to Mini Displayport Adapter. $100 at the Apple Store.

Thats what I thought, but the Ad made me a little weary.

Update: THE MONITOR WORKS! Now I know what a miracle feels like. I'll keep testing it for a week to see how it goes.

Here is what I did, in case others come upon the same problem:

I opened the monitor BEFORE the computer. (Despite the youtube link I linked earlier where it worked just plugged in like that)

Seriously. I wonder if anyone else in this thread found the same thing; I didn't read the whole 350+ pages.

I don't know who coded the firmware for this thing, but it seems to work for now.

So if it won't turn on, try turning on the monitor before the computer. Disable all other inputs you have.

I also switched my DVI port on my GPU; I'm not sure if it had any effect or not. I'm too afraid to put it back in the old port (though it works with other monitors; brand new card).

Well, cheers! I'll see if anything happens again this week.

Oh, and the seller responded by telling me to try changing the adapter and read forums. One step ahead of you buddy wink.gif.

Haha that is funny. My monitor works either way I guess. I'm happy that it worked out for you! You were smart to think about the Hazro manual, since they are exactly the same monitors smile.gif

It still strange though that when you dont plug any cables in the monitor, you get a white flashing... That made me think there was something wrong. But hey, guess these things have a way of their own. Congrats and have fun with your big monitor.

Can you check if you also have a slight yellow tint starting from the middle of the screen, downwards on a white background? (Google for instance)

Thanks
