Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 900

post #8991 of 10800
Colton, I have the same monitor from the same vendor. My brick sounds the same, with the little sticker that says 120 ok. It's been working fine, except after being on a while the brick is "singing" for a bit. If the light on the brick is green and the monitor light flashes blue with no signal I doubt it's a brick problem. Did you try a different cable? Answering from my phone so I'm going off memory reading your post. Try a different dual link cable first. Not sure a laptop will do as a test machine.

Seller, green-sum, was prompt in replying to initial emails and had the tracking numbers up quickly.
I bought, it seems , before they went up in price. Mine was $372 shipped.
Ordered late last Saturday night here in Dallas, and was on my porch Wednesday 11am. Pretty quick, indeed.
Bundled for shipment like the pictures already posted.
No damage what-so-ever.
No dead pixils
No lines, no scars, no dings, no scratches.
I used the power cord from my 24" Viewsonic into the supplied brick and it fired right up.
Calibrated easily to my eyes and desires.
Stunning clarity and colors.
Base tilts and swivels, and yes, is a bit wobbly, but nothing that feels unstable or would be bothersome to me.
I have a AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB DDR5 card and it pushes this monitor just fine.
I did download the Hazro HZ27WC manual to understand which menu item switched it to English.
Extremely happy with this monitor.

Wow nice. Did you buy the perfect pixel guarantee?

No. I read all the listings for all these different brands, and if you notice on the one I bought the seller lists the brands and models that are having the most defects.

Also, I was wanting a little flexibility for connections, plus an OSD menu.

thank you for letting me know that and yes it is blinking blue, I'm glad that rules that out. I have tested the cable with a different monitor and it works fine so that rules that out......i think it may be DOA. what does the monitor look like in standby is there any turn on image or light coming from the monitor?

That monitor will not work on most labtops. You need dual-DVI. Laptops usually DO NOT.

Some laptops like the Macbook Air do.

Blinking blue is looking for a valid signal from your computer. As others have noted, most Intel based laptops do not support full 1440p resolution. Quite frustrating, as most mobile processors are more than capable of driving it, and do show a dual-link connector, but the hardware implementation is where it comes up short.

 

Definitely try that monitor out on a desktop machine with a working dual-link video card and cable before you think of sending it back.

it's a 2000 dollar laptop, it can support ii, especially through the display port. I am wondering though, if I plug it in to a a port that only supports DVI-I it should still run right? just at a lower resolution

I tested the monitor out on my friends desktop and the desktop picks up that it is there but the screen doesn't display anything. the power brick that came with it says input 170v-220v but there is a sticker that looks like it was placed by BCC before shipping that says 110v is ok. When I have it attatched to my laptop and the monitor turned off then i turn my laptop on then midway through the boot turn the monitor on it flashes vertical lines but nothing else. Any ideas? i have a video of the flash. not sure how to show you it though.
thanks, colton

Sounds like the DVI cable they gave you could be bad. Mine was and I bought a new one which helped.

I had this same thought when i was testing a while back. It won't work though. Also, how are you hooking it up to your laptop? Does your laptop even have a dual link dvi port or are you hooking it up another way?

Edit: Nevermind I see one on the back. That will not work with this monitor since it is only DVI-I.
