Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 798

post #7971 of 11286
I just got catleap today, Q270. Green-Sum's ship time is amazing. i ordered on Monday and I got the Monitor on Friday. However, I can't get the monitor to work.

The Q270 led does turn from red to a pulsing green, then green when the system boots up. On the second monitor I can see the system detects the Q270 and shows a native resolution of 2560x1440 but the Q270 screen is completely blank. I don't think the backlights are even on.

The graphic card is a Quadro FX580 running on the latest nVidia win7p-64 driver for the card. The dual-link dvi cable is plugged into the dvi port and not the displayport.

This seems to be an unusual problem. Solid green led but blank screen. Kind of let down after hearing all the great reviews and the thought of having to return the monitor all the way back to S Korea is a bit scary. Anyone else have to problem. Could it be a bad dvi cable? any self diagnosis on the Q270? Is there a initial splash screen for the Q270 when it powers up.

thanks,

John

So I need a longer cable for my catleap. I'm having a hard time finding a cable that meets the rights specs. What's the general price range of a 10 ft. cable I need.

Any suggestions on where to buy one?

thanks

I had the power supply go out in less than an hr today after receiving my other 2 crossovers. Hate how these things crap out as reported by several users in korean monitor club threads

On the plus side, at least the power supplies are external and easy to replace. smile.gif

very true, at least wasn't monitor, all 3 of mine have no dead pixels and extremely minor light bleed, but the damned power supplys!

Ummmm that doesn't support the 2600x1440 resolution of the catleap.

Try again?

This one may do, but I'd rather order from Newegg or amazon....

lol you just linked basically same thing with different name, the newegg one is dual link. says it right on description
post #7978 of 11286
Yea I misread the "Supports resolutions of 1600x1200 pixels and higher".

But not only does it need to be dual link DVI-D and support the resolution of the monitor your applying it too it also needs to have a 9.9 Gbps transfer rate for HD resolution.

Does the one you posted have a 9.9Gbps transfer rate? I can't see it.

WoW! Almost sounds like my problem...I think....let me explain. I got my Catleap delivered and all I get is a flashing green light, and no picture, back lighting...nothing! I have a HIS Radeon HD 6950 video card, and it will not work on this card for some odd reason mad.gif

Now on the other hand, I also have a Radeon HD 4650....512mb DDR2 memory.....guess what.......IT WORKS WITH THAT DAMN CARD from like a few years ago axesmiley.png

Can anyone shed some light on this matter please? The guy at Best Buy (geek squad) didn't even have an answer lol. (really no big surprise though). But seriously, can someone explain this problem ?thumb.gif

Can someone confirm that this mounting arm can be used with the Catleap?
