post #5581 of 11286
Hi I've just received mine and I'm wondering about powering it.

I just have to use my old standard power cord (of my 20" monitor) and to plug it on a standard 120v AC 60Hz outlet and to plug ti into the power brick then I plug the brick to the monitor ?
Even if the powerbrick state 220v AC 50Hz ?

2B is the earlier overclocking monitor (up to 120Hz) and most others can not get past 67Hz.

So mine is a dud. It doesn't do anything but blink green. All internal cable are connected, tried a different DVI cable, and tested the powesupply for proper output. I can't figure out whats wrong. I think I've learned my lesson.

After a few hours of use it started to flicker and look like it was trying to scale the video to the display. I turned it off and the back on, and it gave the same problem. The next morning I woke up and tried it again, and now it just displays the blinking green light with no video. I tried the DVI cable that cam with it on a different display and that worked. I tested the voltage on the power supply and it gave a reading of 30V. Is it possible that the internal DVI connector is loose? ( kinda what it seems like to me) Will opening the monitor void any warranty on it?
If you're getting 30 volts you have a bad power brick unplug it ASAP and get a replacement before you damage your panel! Both top and bottom should read a steady 24vdc.

I know the sting of that disappointment. My Catleap was completely DOA, and when I sent it back it was stuck in customs for 13 days. When they offered me a refund or a new monitor I grudgingly asked for another, I am so glad I persisted and now I am very happy with my purchase. If you've tried everything contact your seller, they will make you whole and this delay will be that much shorter.

Thanks man- I appreciate it. So you think I should try a different power brick first? I did already contact the seller, what I'm kind of worried about is the cost of shipping. How much did it cost you?

You said you checked the voltage right? If it's 24vdc across the top and bottom set of pins without voltage fluctuations, that's probably not the problem. Based on what folks are saying, a cable has probably come loose or disconnected inside, etc. Don't open it though, you will void the warranty! I ordered from green-sum, they gave me a DHL return number so it didn't cost me a thing.

You have checked to be certain you're using a Dual-link port on a capable video card, correct?

Yeah, DVI dual link for sure. Voltage is reading 30v instead of 24v, but the monitor did power on and display video when I first plugged it in. Hopefully the seller gets in contact with me soon.

Does your processor have a built in GPU? Have you checked BIOS settings to see that the proper GPU is used as a default output? Do you have any other monitors plugged in to your computer when you boot it? Is your monitor connected with a proper cable to the first dvi port on your card, if there are 2 dvi sockets on it?
