Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 324

I purchased a Yamakasi Catleap 27" monitor last week and have been loving it! I ultimately would like to have a second one to run a dual monitor setup, but I have a reservation:
I generally power off my screens when I'm done with them for the day (hit the power button). Upon powering up the monitor again, I was presented with a stuck screen full of garbled bars. After turning it off and back on again, the problem went away. I worry that if the monitor keeps doing this, eventually it won't turn on correctly again. Is this a monitor issue or GPU issue?
I'm using an eVGA GeForce Ti 560 448 core FTW edition.
Do you cut off the power to the monitor in any way (like switching off a regulator, battery backup, etc)? If you do, just wait a few seconds after you restore power before turing on the monitor. It is normal behavior for this particular unit.

No, I simply push the power button on the monitor itself. When the screen came on with garbled bars like that, I waited 10-15 seconds but it never resolved itself. Only after I powered it back off and back on again did it work correctly.

This is normal behavior?

I do get the garbled bars if I cut off power to the monitor as I described, and turn the monitor immediately after I restore power. If I wait a few seconds this doesn't happen. I always thought it could be an issue with the power adapter (theory being that it takes a little while for output to be stabilized, since these are in reality made for Korea). Maybe you could try replacing the AC adapter with one of those sold on Amazon or eBay (quite a few people in this forum have chosen to replace it with those).

I know other people have reported the same thing so I know you are not the only one who gets that issue. I don't remember anyone fully resolving it except for powering it off and then back on like you are doing.

So it's nothing I should be too worried about then? If so, that's definitely a relief.

My plan is to keep using this one for a month or two before ordering a second one in the event that there's any other sketchy behavior.

Have you discussed it with your seller yet? I had and I was being asked to send the photos, then silence. I have been waiting an answer for 2 business days. Still waiting, no answer yet.
Please keep me informed if you get any news from yours.

I think the colour settings on my catleap might be a bit messed up. I think I applied the calibrated ICM from the OP, but anyway when I look at dark images I can't see any detail in them...

In this all I can see of the ninja in the bottom left is the eyemask and belt, the rest is totally black.

Is this something I can remedy in Windows' settings or Catalyst? Contrast maybe?

Thanks for your reply. I just got my monitor today and I am not sure what the revision of it is. How do I tell if I have a 2C or 2B model?

Thanks,

From some of the screenies it looks like it was right on the box?
