So... is it worth selling my 2D to get a 2B perfect pixel for games? I haven't seen anything over 60hz since my CRT days...

Or will the 2D be easy to mod with PCB/wires coming soon? Please advise.

how or where are you getting a guaranteed 2b with perfect pixel?
if you know how to use a screwdriver it wont be that difficult to replace the pcb in the one you have now

Check the Input Lag link in the OP for information on this topic collected from the Club posts. Direct link is here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1225919/yamakasi-catleap-monitor-club/1430#post_16797012

In the end it is a personal choice based on what games you play, watch videos, etc.

Not sure about 2D, I recall someone posting the 2D board pictures a while back (search thread for 2D) and some discussion about board swaps.

Recent 2Bs came from a new eBay vendor that had some older stock on hand. From as far as I can tell this has all been sold out and all sellers are saying that they don't have 2Bs anymore or they can't check for serials.

Best place to get a "2B" is to buy the monitor being produced on the "100Hz" catleap thread. That will be available in ~ 1m. If your interested in it, please vote on this thread - http://www.overclock.net/t/1232084/yamakasi-catleap-q270-100hz-guaranteed

My bottom right corner is darker + yellower. It's not massively noticeable, but you can kind of see it if you drag a window from one side to another. Would this be caused by the backlight or the panel itself?

Anyone have dust on a NON-tempered panel? I have 4 small spots (1-2 pixel size) that are several mm behind the LCD itself. Hopefully they're caught in the diffuser and not inside the polarizer. May have to disassemble later to try and remove them.

  1. Unplug everything (monitors)
  2. Confirm 24v from brick (I doubt this is it, but doesn't hurt to confirm.  Also, you have the Welltronics 110-240v brick?  You could skip this if you don't know how to check or don't have a voltmeter handy.)
  3. Turn off comp
  4. Use a GOOD DVI cable - not the supplied DVI
  5. Do not connect a monitor - turn on comp - wait until you would normally be booted into Windows
  6. Catleap UNPLUGGED from power
  7. Connect DVI cable - comp then to Catleap
  8. Connect power to Catleap
  9. RED power switch?
  10. Press it
  11. Anything?  What does LED on Catleap power switch do?  Still flash green?
  12. Swap outputs on your GPU.
  13. Same result?
  14. If nothing on screen and flashing green - have to open her up and reseat all the cables (DVI PCB and PANEL PCB) - see OP - it is easy so don't be scared!
  15. Try again after reseating cables.
  16. Report back!

Hope this helps some.

Ok I tried all of your suggestions, nothing worked, I am getting a flashing green light and unforutuantely I only have one dvi-d cable but I confirmed it's not the cable itself.

I have just unscrewed all the screws and call me a noob but...why isn't it popping off? is there a hidden screw or does it take some prying force?

Just removed the fixed stand and the plastic arch. Now my monitor just stays blank! There's solid green light on the monitor and on the power brick, windows detected catleap as DUAL-DVI monitor (I've multi monitors setup, FYI), but nothing would be displayed...AMD catalyst and power strip also detected the catleap with correct resolution 2560x1440. I was working fine yesterday for few hours...I just want to put the sweet monitor on the desktop mount.

I am using 6950 2GB. Tried the included DVI-D cable on other monitor and it works - only have 1 dual link DVI-D cable at the moment.

I hate to open up the monitor again. Any suggestion? Thanks!

Well, we've similar situation, but my light is solid green (I believe it means there's video signal). In your case (flashing green) I believe monitor is up, but there's no video signal detected - if I unplugged the DVI-D cable, the catleap would flash green.

On the OP page (first page) you'd find how to open up the catleap. The instruction provided by OP is very clear.
I just hate to open up the monitor again, the front bezel is flaky, tiny pressure with flat tip screwdriver would chip it - expected from the cheap price.

Does take some force, but not a lot. There are several 3-pronged snap-on clips on each edge of the bezel that need to be unhooked. Pressing inward from the side on the front-most section of the bezel makes it easier to unhook them. If you have an old credit card (or equivalent), use the corner to press gently inward between the front and back bezel sections where the clips are. The clips are not visible when doing this, but by sliding the card along the edge you can feel them. It gets easier after the first few.

Cloth said his perfect pixel series ($75 more) are 2Bs.

If it will be very easy to replace the PCB later for OC, I will just do that. I was thinking it would be complex with soldering, etc. I don't do that stuff tongue.gif
