Hey guys, i got my yamakasi catleap q270 SE today. Problem is it is stuck on black screen with green blinking led. My graphics card is msi hd7950 twinfrozr which has a dual link dvi. I am using the dual link dvi cable i know that works from my acer gd245hq - which btw still works with the cable-. I tried doing a clean install of my drivers, i tried running the screen without drivers, using only the yamakasi alone, using it with my acer plugged in hdmi and another screen plugged into one of the display ports, yamakasi plugged in to a display port with a converter, none of them worked. Nothing. Only the freaking green blinking dot. My computer does not see the screen at all, not even as a device with a problem in device manager.
I even opened up the screen and checked the cables, everything seemed fine. Note that i didn't open the casing holding the panel which has a lg sticker on it, just removed the thin metal cover on the pcb and checked the cable's there, all of them were plugged in tight. do i need to go in further because i did not see an easy way to unhook the big light grey cable with smaller ones inside, its a cable type i am not accustomed with and it seemed unpluggable. I have two crappy screenshots taken with my phone with weird angle's i will include them too. Cable i am talking about is the one on the second pic.
Please help, i really want to use my monitor and i cannot afford to send it back since customs in my country is a mess (also i already opened it since i was sure i can fix it).
Note: While i was uploading images, i saw the screens backlight blink twice, with at least 5 minutes interval between them. I also saw a Video Controller problematic device on device manager, uploading its screen too.
oh man i feel for ya....it would be very unpleasant to receive a so awaited monitor to only find out it doesnt work...do you have an old video card laying around you could try? maybe ask a friend?
otherwise i dont know what else to tell you. Email the seller and see what he says. Good luck and keep us posted.
edit: reinstall your video drivers maybe? or uninstall them then when it asks to reboot, turn off the pc, connect the monitor, make sure its plugged in properly and turn the pc back on, hopefully it works. Also do you have another DDVI cable you can use? how bout another pc to plug the monitor into?
edit2: make sure you see a red light when u press the power button on the yamakasi....you should leave it pressed for a second, its not just press and let go...sometimes u have to make sure u press it in good, itll go red(im not sure) then green if theres no input....once you turn the pc on, it goes red, then green then shows the image....Edited by lokito50 - 12/7/12 at 1:40pm
