Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 220

post #2191 of 11304
Stryker's 2B DVI board (and cables) and the T-con I bought off Taobao both showed up, and I've got them hooked up to my "2C" panel right now; I'm pleased to say that this configuration works, and allows high refresh rates (running 81Hz right now on my 4870X2). About the timing controller - the one I bought is designed for the LM270WQ2-SLA1, which is the CCFL-backlit variant of this monitor. As I suspected, it's capable of driving the Q1 panel just fine, with one caveat; the board is sized/shaped differently (despite being specced pretty much the same as the LVDS T-con for the Q1) and so the mount holes don't line up right with the respective points on the panel itself. It's not a big deal (nothing a bit of tape and metal bending won't work around) but it is there.

So, if anybody's desperate to source a working high-refresh T-con for these panels (you'll still need a DVI board from somewhere), the ones designed for the LM270WQ2-SLA1 will work electrically, but don't mount perfectly.

I think I'll buy one of those power bricks, but I wish there was some love for Canadians. I might see if I can find it locally. Also, it took a little while but I figured out how to get the English OCD.

I have a question about the power bricks though, if yours works and is planning on buying a new one, what is your reasoning? Just curious if it's like a safety precaution or something.

I just have one question.
Does this monitor works with an Macbook Pro Mid2010 (Nvidia GT330M) and a active miniDisplay Port to Dual DVI- Adapter?
Thank you.

yeah, I bought a converter from monoprice and hooked it to a mac. if you search for my posts back in the thread you will find the exact item I bought.
it works fine but there are some problems with sleep mode. after it goes in sleep mode sometimes it doesn't wake up properly and it shows garbage...
a simple restart of the adapter fixes it.

The option to change the language is the second from the bottom.

What would be a good liquid to clean these monitors?
post #2196 of 11304
Has anyone got one of these to the UK? Did you get charged import fees? And what did you ask for or what price was the item declared at?

In my opinion you have lost some significant details in your translating but maybe I am wrong and they are not significant as I think. So you'd better wait for the DASM's instructions, he is the creator of this mod as you have already guessed.

Despite of the fact that a Catleap has an imperfect LED backlight electric scheme it also means that there is NO PWM controller onboard. No PWM, no eyes strain!thumb.gif
The proof is here: http://forum.ixbt.com/topic.cgi?id=28:27097:0#0 but in Russian again. Google's translator may help, if not just find there the links on the youtube videos - the comparison of PWN implemented in Dell 2711, Asus PA246Q and Catleap Yamakasi(the last movie). For instance, as you can see on the chart a Dell has no PWM factor only when the brightness is on the max level, unlike a Catleap.
Sorry again for my poor English I hope you understand the idea of my message.

Yes, where is no PWM in this monitor. But the scheme was done very poorly, is often caused by darkening one side of the screen. Follow this link to fix it http://forum.ixbt.com/topic.cgi?id=28:27061-28#896

Got mine from green-sum about a month ago. Was declared at $30. Came really quick and had no problems with customs, no charges at all which was extremely surprising considering the huge box in a box situation. Normally get stung for most things being in the UK so I was probably just lucky.

Sorry for posting the link on your "baby" before you (on page 216 actually) but Phenrick has already tried to translate it .There might be lost in his translating. Check it out. Or just post here your own English version "How to do". I hardly ever believe that any google translator or any smart but non-Russian speaking person will translate that : "одной лапой на землю другой в воздух" smile.gif in correctly way.
