And no I don't have any lean on my monitor. People can try any method they like, of course. This method was just the one I found to be the most effective.

Oic, thanks for the information!

I laughed so hard with your end statement to ppl about "reading up". Hyper keep up the good work. I'd be frustrated too if the comments in the video were what ppl were stating online.

Hi all, I just received a Catleap Q270 Multi from green-sum today but I am totally bummed right now because it was DOA. Here's the story:
I plugged it in and pressed the power button and there was nothing on the screen, and the light in the bottom right did not show anything at all (no red light or green light, nothing).
Sent an e-mail to green-sum who told me to check if the power adapter was working (I have one of the Welltronics 110-240V adapters). Plugged it in, yes the green light turns on. Took a multimeter, yes it is supplying 24V.
But the monitor does not seem to be getting any power at all?
green-sum said the monitor is probably defective and that I have to send it back to Korea for testing, and then once they verify that it is defective they will exchange a new one + reimburse me for the shipping cost... which would be fine and dandy except that the Canada Post website estimates a shipping cost of $460 (!) CAD. That's more than what I paid to get the monitor in the first place.
Anyway, I let green-sum know about the quote and they are also trying to find alternative shipping now... They said that it is the first defective return from Canada so they will have to do some research and get back to me.
So I'm here to ask, what else can I do to try and trouble-shoot the problem? Somebody please tell me that there's an extra magical button somewhere that I forgot to press to make the monitor work? ...Or does anybody know of any cheap shipping methods for a large parcel from Canada to South Korea? (And by cheap, I mean comparable to what I've read here about shipping from the US to Korea, ~100-130 USD)

A lot of people were saying the pcb connectors were becoming disconnected during shipping. Try opening up the monitor and unplugging/replugging all ables on the board and making sure they're connected snugly. I'd definitely try that before considering sending the monitor back. Best of luck and let us know how it goes!

Edit: Also, I'd check DHL and TNT for any shipments to Korea. I have friends who ship internationally to family/etc and value is an issue, and I don't know the prices but these are the 2 main ones I hear that they use so there may be something to that.

Just wanted to say thankyou to the guys who started this thread.

Bought a CATLEAP Q270 SE from dcsamsungmall on tuesday, and it arrive today. I live in france and dcsamsungmall included an invoice to the front as i requested for $80, so far no customs request, but i expect, as was delivered via FedEx it might come under separate cover.

Anyway, one very happy customer so far. Can't find any dead or stuck pixels, and the picture is amazing. Will be waiting to see how the garanteed 100hz comes off as ill buy another 2 if it does.

Sorry, what do you mean by "Guaranteed 100hz?" Over 67hz requires a 2b panel which I've only heard of being delivered twice in the past 3 weeks. Otherwise there's no OC available. frown.gif But grats on getting a beautiful monitor and keep an eye on this thread for info about possible OC boards that you can swap yours out with!

Hi Guys, just registered to let you know.
Ordered my Catleap from Green-Sum on 26.03, delivered to Perth Australia on 04.04 way ahead of time (as stated extra 2 weeks for pixel perfect). Mine is "SE" pixel perfect model , no glass , no speakers, serial no 2A !
Only connected to test it as waiting for my new "proper" v.card. No dead pixels , nice uniformity, crappy wonky stand leaning to right. Will get proper Vesa mount later on.
Has anyone had 2A series and tried overclocking one?

Thanks for the suggestion. As soon as I lifted up the panel, I smelled a faint burnt plastic smell.

I took the metal cover off to take a look at the PCB and see if there was anything fried... everything looked ok, so I got a little closer to sniff around and concluded that there HAD to be something burnt.

Took the PCB out, flipped it over, and two of the ICs are melted (U300 and U302... haven't looked closely to see if any others are gone). As more proof that something burned, I looked back at the metal plate which was under the PCB and there are two big brown spots where those ICs were in contact with.

So there's my problem, parts of this board fried. DId it happen under my care or someone else's, I can't say for sure. This monitor was supposed to be new from green-sum (I did not ask for perfect pixel check so it should not have been opened) and I did not notice anything strange when I plugged it in the first time today - just that it would not turn on.

Now I really don't know what to do. I know what the issue is (or maybe whatever fried the board also damaged the panel too, I don't know, hopefully not?) and it would be a lot easier and cheaper if it was possible to just send the PCB back and get a replacement for it... but what do I say to green-sum? I'm pretty sure I voided the warranty by opening it up. -_-"

Help. I feel screwed out of $450.

Man I feel for you. Honestly, I'd close it back up and send it back anyway. $450 is nothing to sneeze at, and you did what you did in good faith.

Yours is the first 2A I have heard of, to be honest (or at least that I remember).
