My Potalion is going to be here on either tomorrow or Tuesday if things go according to plans, and being the procrastinator I am, wondering until when can I add that warranty in case an issue arises tongue.gif

I purchased my PCBANK on the 2nd and I can still add the warranty.

I am having this problem with my Potalion 2710QW, It happens randomly.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0-G2LAq7H0&

Could this be a power brick problem?

Have you tried unplugging and connecting all the cables back? Try swapping the three prong cable in the extension part of the power brick with a spare or one form your PC. Could be the DVI cable too...

Could be anything actually. Try a bunch of things and cross off what doesn't work to drill down to the real cause. If it is the power brick in the end, you could send the youtube link to the seller and ask them to ship you a new brick.

I bought a Achieva QH270 lite from dreamseller on Ebay but when i plugged it to my computer, i just have a blinking blue led on the monitor.
The blinking blue led is caused by a missing signal ??

I try 2 different graphics cards, a ATI HD 6950 2gb and a Nvidia GTX670 and still the same thing...
What should i do ? Can it be the D-DVI cable shipped with the monitor ?

When i turn it on, just have a quick flash on the screen and then it's definitely black, just this blinking led.

Any help will be appreciated.
I already contacted Dreamseller for a faulty item but i really hope to not spend 150$ for the return ...

Thanks for your help.

I'm looking around at the various options on these Korean monitors and I notice that seller 'Red-cap' doesn't post a list of suitable graphic cards with his panels , whereas most of the other sellers do.

That's not a problem I hope? My graphic card seems to be OK with most of these ... just making sure before moving forward here!

When mine has no signal the led turns red and it goes to sleep.


As for the earlier discussion on the squaretrade warranty. I contacted them and they say they will cover my monitor.

That's good news! I am going to wait close to my 30 days before I decide to add the Squaretrade warranty for my 2 Potalions that I have coming.

Blinking LED means your monitor is not detecting/receiving a "correct" signal. You need to get another monitor and have that as your main monitor, then plug in this monitor as a secondary monitor and it should detect it and display a picture. You can then make it the primary monitor and setup the correct resolution if it's wrong.

Also, some graphics cards don't operate in dual link DVI mode by default and you may need to activate a switch or something, may want to google up your specific brand of the HD6950 or GTX670.

I tested my Achieva IPSB on both a HD4670 and on integrated graphics (Llano) via DisplayPort->Dual Link DVI Active outputs and both do display the BIOS fine. However, when I updated to Windows 8 I couldn't get a display after BIOS on my Llano build (sigrig) and my motherboard kept outputting the signal to my HDMI monitor, not sure why. This meant the Achieva IPSB just kept blinking blue. As my llano board only supports two lanes of outputs (I believe it's a hardware limitation and DP takes two lanes) I couldn't use my original monitor AND setup the Achieva as a secondary display as it wasn't recognised. I didn't bother with finding the solution though as my monitor had tons of "stuck pixels/LCD problem" and I was returning it anyway.
