Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 157

post #1561 of 11304
So I just got mine today, got it all hooked up and...the colors are crazy off and I can't figure out how to fix them.

I've tried using the windows calibration tool with no luck. All of my blacks appear as blue. Moving the slides around (in the windows calibration, no idea how to bring them up with just the monitor buttons??) doesn't even come close to correcting the issue.

I've also tried all three of the profiles in the OP with no luck in getting rid of this blue problem. I have it next to my Dell 3011 which and it's not even just a subtle difference, blacks are very clearly shown as blue.

So did I get a lemon or is there something silly I'm missing....

Open up Nvidia control panel, and configure the colors from there.

Re: compatibility on a 5850. I have a 5850 and it works fine except the BIOS won't display. I thought it wasn't working at first so I was making sure it was connected/wiggling cables around an then it popped on. I thought it was a bad wire but now I understand that it just won't display any bios info. Kinda sucks but I am upgrading anyway. As far a gaming goes, I have been playing Stalker COP, RAGE, Skyrim, Portal etc at a decent framerate. The Witcher 2 is a different story however. All in all, I am impressed with how the 5850 keeps up.

I need to update my sig rig, got a 7970. In any event, tried to adjust the colors in CCC and it doesn't do anything to the horrid blue, just changes the tint of it.

Connect only the Catleap and one gpu and see what happens. Also try and install the the gpu drivers again or roll back to a previous one.

When colours are out and completely washed out by Red, Green or Blue (RGB) in my experience it's usually a connector or cable issue. Try a different cable if you have another DVI-D or you may have to check the connection internally so make sure it's all intact correctly.

This was actually it. It's the Asus DCii DVI connectors. Using one of the connectors (which works fine with my dell 2007fp) creates that blue mess. Using the other connector created my black mess. Didn't think to pull all the cables out and replug them in, but thats when I discovered this. Thanks and +Rep!!

firstly, that model number LM270WQ1-SLA1 for the OC pcb seems to refer to a 10bit panel (actually 8 bit + frc) so logic would dictate that the SLA1 pcb would go with SLA1 panel
from this list here http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/monitor_panel_parts.htm
there seems to be a few similar models:
LM270WQ1-SDA2 (5ms G2G , 1000:1, 16.7M (8-bit) 77%)
LM270WQ1-SDDA (12ms G2G, 1000:1, 1.07b sRGB)
LM270WQ1-SLA1 (6ms G2G, 1000:1, 1.07b (8-bit+A-FRC) 77%)
LM270WQ2-SLA1 (5ms G2G, 1000:1, 1.07b (8-bit+A-FRC) 102%)
but it gets stranger b/c in the pictures of the OC panel from the first post, the back of the lcd is for the SDE3 panel.
with more digging i found info on SDE3.. but it is an 8-bit panel with ed4 (4 lane)
http://www.panelook.com/modeldetail.php?id=14391
vs. SLA1 panel http://www.panelook.com/modeldetail.php?id=13657 10-bit & Signal interface: lvds 4ch
it is strange how the SDE3 panel came with components for the SLA1. so maybe they are just using whatever parts they had on hand?
oh and, i found this http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=13406346493 it is a different model number, but maybe it could be compatible.


We have been over this early on and the truth is the panel doesn't matter at all.  There are numerous panels out there with different designations in all of the Achievas, Crossovers, and Catleaps.  It comes down to the PCBs.  I have two different panels and swapping the PCBs got me to 100hz in both.  As I have stated throughout the thread, these are grab bag parts added to these panels, which is why it is so difficult to nail down one particular part!

I doubt there would be much warranty support even if you lived in Korea.  I imagine the scenario would be drop off broken monitor, returned with all different PCBs - whatever they had on hand to make it work.

Seriously?  I don't think you can get a better price (other than maybe $5-10 of per if that?)  Think about it.  These retail for $250 in Korea.  You're getting it shipped to your door (in a week!) for less than $400 (not sure where prices are now, but I think they are in the $360-$380 range.)  That's a STEAL.  Shipping EMS from Korea to the US is about $125-$150.  Not sure what price point you are hoping for, but these really won't be any cheaper since over a third of the cost is shipping.
