That definitely doesn't look right. It looks like Cleartype gone wild. heh What does it look like if you disable Cleartype, just for kicks? (Ultimately, I'm curious what a single line of white pixels looks like.)

You have a bad dvi cable there. Your new cable that you ordered should eliminate the problem.

My PCBANK had that problem and I got a Monoprice dvi cable that solved the font problem.

I did follow the instructions to the dime.......except I did NOT remove any type of connections.......the cable got caught on the monitor and broke off..............That's why my post was to warn people about how fragile the connector is........


About those people who also messed up their OSD board.......did they manage to get new ones from the sellers in Korea? Or did they find a way to solder it back together?

I've run into the flashing green light issue from teh Catleap Q270. I followed the procedures, and took the necessary steps. I've used three different dual dvi cables. Other monitors work with my setup which is a GTX 560 TI. I've opened up the monitor and it was pretty different from previous pictures that I've seen.

Here's some pics of when I open it.

The connections were on tight, and nothing appeared loose. I bought my monitor from bigclothcraft. At this point, I'm not sure what else there is to do aside from contact BCC.

One thing I did notice is that when I bought AC Adapter 24V 5A For EFL-2202W I can't use it to power the catleap because when it is plugged in the power brick automatically turns off. So I've been using the stock power brick (which has a faint led that is not blinking) and that just gives me the blinking/flashing green light from the monitor.

I did manage to get my system to recognize the monitor though. I heard the beeping noise when I connected the catleap to my computer but nothing appeared on the screen. It just remained black. Maybe I have a power issue?

Have you tried re-installing your graphics driver? I got to the same situation, where the screen would appear to be on (solid green light) but just a black screen. Reinstalling graphics drivers fixed this.

Yeh, I've reinstalled the drivers. Nothing still. I've been trying to contact bigclothcraft to get the rma in the works.
