However, the backlight is still on and the blue light on the bottom right hand corner is still on, which indicates that the monitor is still on.
I've tried a new DVI cable to no avail (the one I was previously using is a 24 AWG DVI-D cable from Monoprice). I've ordered a new power brick from eBay, in hopes that that will fix the problem. I will keep you guys updated. In addition to this, I've also tried turning the monitor on/off, replugging in the power supply, pulling the DVI cable in/out, cold rebooting the computer, and plugging the DVI cable into another DVI port. The monitor will turn on and then fade back to black again.
If the new power supply doesn't work, I will be very disappointed about the fact that after 2.5 months of working fine, the monitor decides to die on me. I purchased no warranty because I didn't think I would need it, but now, I wish I did.
I had an issue with my catleap where the display only showed the lit up blank background too. If you can't get it working, try opening it up and check the loose connections. My particular problem was fixed when I wiggled the top board back in. It's just taped to the monitor but there's 2 connectors holding it in to the top of the monitor. I had to put it out and move it back in.
If only you lived just a little closer I'd do it myself lol
Wrong thread, this is the Catleap thread.
