I got a new DVI cable and still blinking.

I'm ready to do the next step " Loose wiring inside the unit (DVI connection to Panel PCB connection.)" but i don't know what a PCB connections is.

I got my monitor apart what wires do i need to check? The DVI connector is attached to the PCB board right?

My computer recognizes when my monitor is plugged in but i just see a black screen and the green blinking light.

Thanks for any help.

I'm going to assume you have a Cat2B and it was overclocked wink.gif

1) One step you forgot is to check is your power brick, especially if it was running hot to the touch, it should be replaced.

2) If your power brick is good, and have checked all internal panel/PCB connections are good, your in luck because just a couple months ago the original PCB overclock kits became available again from Overlords bankruptcy stock ... Many a Cat2B has been resurected with this kit and it's a steal @$107 ... http://www.ebay.com/itm/LG-IPS-27-Overclock-Monitor-PCB-Set-w-TCON-DVI-Cables-/181982550293?hash=item2a5f015915:g:9bQAAOSwiwVWSlc3 ... read the reviews if you doubt compatibility biggrin.gif

3) The most favored replacement monitor now is the Crossover 2795 (see thread HERE) because QNIX has changed a few things and most of them now have PWM diming. The 2795 is on sale right now @ $289 but it only comes in a matte panel and it's very rare that they reach 120Hz OC, but all of them seem to hit 96Hz no problem. ... Go with green-sum vs dream-seller trust me wink.gif

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfect-Pixel-CROSSOVER-2795-QHD-AHIPS-LED-27-2560X1440-LG-IPS-Monitor-Matte-/141740633783?hash=item2100666eb7:g:RY0AAOSw~gRVxtXn

4) If PWM diming isn't a problem for you and you want a glossy and a better chance to hit 120Hz then go with the QNIX ... @$220 http://www.ebay.com/itm/QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-ll-Glossy-27-2560x1440-SAMSUNG-PLS-Panel-PC-Monitor-/111482846269?hash=item19f4e53c3d:g:ZSoAAMXQDfdRtY7e ... just make sure it is the OC single-input PLS model and be sure about your PWM concerns ...

Hope that helps thumb.gif

So the issue with monitor going off when windows starts it's an nvidia drivers issue... Will try to contact them and get it somewhat looked at (good luck to me)

I ran into the same issue with my Q270 last year but wasn't able to try a new cable till today, same problem where it works for bios and at the windows loading screen but as soon as it finishes loading the green light blinks, like it doesn't recognize it, I also uninstalled the nVidia drivers but it didn't so squat.
Does that sound like the control board is bad? I previously checked all the internal connections and they were fine btw.

Nvidia is aware of the problem and is looking into it, blued what card do you have? It seems affecting 980/980ti from what I gathered (I would say probably 970 too).

I run a Catleap 2B on a 980Ti without issues.

oh interesting, I run a Crossover 27Q LED on a GTX 970 and the other day after Windows 10 auto updated the Nvidia graphics, I had the same thing happen... screen displays nothing once Windows starts booting. Ended up doing a fresh system install and everything was fine after.

Does anyone have experience with the Catleap 2703?

I'm looking at finally getting a 1440p monitor out of my income tax return, and these are my two options right now.

$290 - AOC Q2778VQE - 1440p, 27in, 1ms Response Time, very good reviews, but is TFT instead of IPS.

$190 - Yamakasi Catleap 2703 Refurb - 1440p, 27in, 6ms Response Time, I know next to nothing about this particular catleap.

Bear in mind I'm not all that interested in OC, I just want 27" 1440p.
