Anyway my first observation was the power brick not warming up (at all) although tHe little green LED light is on and the blue light on the monitor continues to flash. Its unusual for to produce no heat at all right? Otherwise I'll have to start swapping out cables & GPU.
PS no multimeter handy.

The power supply that came with mine from redcap doesn't get very warm, and feels rather cool for a while after being turned on.

For the display, you need to make sure you are using a dual link DVI cable, and that it is firmly attached to the video card and display. If these apply, try another cable, as having a bad or slightly off cable will do all sorts of things.

Hello community, my first post hehe:)

I'm asking for a refund from Dream-seller then...
BCC contacted me yesterday, so I'm ordering from him instead.
Thanks!

Hey guys, first post here and I just wanted everyone's opinion on something.

I purchased my Shimian monitor after a bunch of back and forth with the retailer, "Dream-seller" because they ran out of my original order a Perfect Pixel white Catleap Q270. They were really quick and responding to all my messages and were very helpful, that is, until now.

As of lately, this has been happening when I go to turn on my monitor:


It doesn't always happen and it only occurs when I turn my monitor on. I found this post here in response to another user with the "same" issue:

When windows awake from sleep mode (not from screen protect mode),

That is a weak point of this kind of by-pass model.
So I suggest do not use sleep mode if you have issues about that.

Keeping in mind this issue with Windows and sleep mode with this particular kind of monitor. I'm not waking from sleep mode, but am either powering on my computer or turning on my monitor after I had turned it off while my computer was running.

Now, I just swapped DVI-D dual link cables, replacing the cable that shipped with my monitor with a cable I know is good. Next step will be monitoring the power brick, then worst comes to worse, I tear my monitor apart and check the internal cables. Although that should probably void my warranty, if I even have one that is... Being cautious, I messaged Dream-seller as soon as I encountered this problem early yesterday and I still haven't heard back from them, which is strange, seeing as when they wanted my money, they were very quick to respond.

Per-ebay's terms and conditions, I have two weeks from the date of arrival of my monitor to return it to the seller, which is in 5 days. I asked Dream-Seller how I would go about doing so seeing as eBay states to contact the seller, but I feel as if they are purposely procrastinating on a response. Note: I didn't state to them that I wanted to return the monitor just yet, as I'm testing the unit, I just asked "What I would have to do, if need be."

So, what do I do? I'm hoping it's the cable, because I love this monitor. 0 dead/stuck pixels and the picture looks beautiful.

How would I return my monitor if need be? I did check other threads and that's how I learned about the loose internal cables/flakey DVI cable/bad power bricks problems. I just need everyone's opinion; is it worth pursuing getting a return from Dream-seller within the next 5 days or am I on my own at this point in time?

Decided to jump on the Shimian since I've been saving for one and the prices were jumping quite fast. The Catleaps were quite out of my range with the increased prices and the Shimian was still in the sub $300 range.

Got in while they were under $300 USD. Ordered on Sunday and was running late this morning when I had a knock on the door. I am completely blown away by this monitor. I had picked up a Catleap about 6 months back and I must say, the stand on the QH270 is a much more stable than the Catleap. I didn't do the Pixel Perfect or any such thing - quite simply rolled the dice. While I was apprehensive to check at first, the Windows 8 Start screen makes for a good place to find any pixel issues. Also, not a bad turnaround with the Labor Day Holiday in the mix! Faster than Newegg! wink.gif

Will get some pics online soon. If you are thinking about this one, go for it! The prices seem to be rising for some reason. These things have really spoiled our eyes. Going to a resolution less than these is tough not to mention the image quality/brightness/IPS/etc.

Oh man... I'm in the same oven .
I bought mine from Dream seller about a month ago and it starts to show all flickering and black out randomly.
I contacted the seller and have not received any response from him.
I'm very disappointed at their service after monitor shipped out and being very irresponsible for what they promised as 1 year warranty.
Only used mine for less than 2 months!!
I have no extra monitor to run and I'm stuck with dumb monitor goes off randomly which is very annoying and not usable. mad.gif

Hi just wondering if anyone here could possibly help me out with a problem im having.

Just bought 3 Shimians of Greensum. Plugged the first one into my pc with the power off, used supplied dvi cable. Turned computer on and windows failed to load. Intially i thought windows had stuffed up but after much frustration i unplugged the monitor and restarted, windows booted up fine. I tried plugging the monitor in whilst windows was running. Windows fails to detect the monitor and the shimian's blue light flashes continuously. I then did the next rational thing and assumed the monitor was buggered. Tried with the other two but all to the same result. Tried switching the dvi cable over and then tried switching the DVI port that I was using but all produce the same result, I have measured the voltage on the power brick, 23 volts (im in Australia so mains here is 230).

Just some more info on my rig.
Motherboard :ASUS P9X79. Processor Intel 3930K. RAM. 16GB of Corsair vengence. Graphics card: ASUS HD7970 CUII TOP. Powersupply : Corsair AS750 Gold. Harddrive : Corsair SSD 60 GB

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Im in the same boat as Varagner..as well as the same country. Blankety Blanks! My seller is TA Planet. I didn't realise Windows wasn't loading until I hot swapped my old monitor and nothing (still). Then rebooted & it was fine.
Meantime my Shimian is blinking blue at me. Am I supposed to get an orange light at some stage? I guess when Windows loads. BTW...Varagner, how did you test your power brick ?

I've switched out the DVI cable twice with same result.

I think there is a tiny switch on these ASUS graphic cards that toggles one of the DVI's from single to dual mode ... double check that you have it set right!
My ASUS 6950 CUII is exactly the same ...

I received my Shimian Lite model this morning (UK). Quickly plugged it in. EVERYTHING WORKS. I paid £220, using AW. I got to say that this is the second monitor I have bought from them, and no flaws. I didnt pay for a perfect pixel model, but they have a 3 defective pixel policy which is probably the best out of all the Korean Sellers. Ultra quick delivery too, ordered Monday. AW told me they checked the monitor three times using three different people to check the monitor. I've had problems with TP and BCC. BCC did have great communication but AW were the only ones keeping there promise on working models. =)

The Achieva Shimian displays look pretty good. I'm looking at either the IPSI or the LITE.

I'm concerned that my video card won't be able to handle it though.
I have the NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600 1.5Gb (In a 3.2Gb quad core Mac Pro - top of the line in 2008. New to me recently though biggrin.gif)

On the Nvidia site they claim it supports ultra-high-resolution panels (up to 3840 x 2400 @ 24Hz on each panel) so I assume it should be OK for the Shimian?

Thanks.
