Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 178

post #1771 of 3508
So today I recieved my new QH270-Lite and it worked perfectly for a few hours. Suddenly the screen decides to display various colour stribes in a flash and then it turns black. The only way to reverse this is turning of my monitor and turning it on again after a few seconds. But it keeps happening after a few minutes.
The power supply is not so warm I would begin to blame it, anyone experienced something similiar?

I believe it's a monitor hardware failure as I've tested two separate gfx cards on different machines, tried different cables etc, tried as primary....
Any feedback on this would be great. The seller (bigclothcraft) is yet to reply to my inquiry. Quite frustrating.

Did you ever make any progress on this? I just installed the GTX 680 I ordered and nothing has changed frown.gif I can't really fault the monitor since it works perfectly when hooked to my GFs ATI card in her box, but it looks like the graphics card wasn't the problem.

Does anyone have any additional help they could offer? I've tried different cables, different screen settings, flash my motherboards BIOS, and now even a different high end graphics card. I'm at my wits end. How can my girlfriends $60 graphics card push this monitor and my $500 dollar one can't?

Has anyone ever tried to make a triple monitor bezel for these monitors? I understand it is relatively easy to remove the bezel from these monitors, so it seems to me it'd be kind of a neat project.

Have you tried a different DVI cable? Sometimes the cables can be at fault from time to time.

I'm new here...
So I got my Shimian a few days ago. However I just got my cables today. I have a Thinkpad W520. The cable I bought was a Bizlink Display Port to DVI-D. After I connected everything to the computer, my laptop screen just freaked out and became super low resolution. While there's no reaction on the Shimian other than the blue light flashing on the bottom of the monitor....
It seems that my computer can recognize Shimian, but I can't get this to work.....This is really frustrating...
Any suggestion? Maybe I bought the wrong cable?

Thank you so much.

You need a DVI-I cable, I believe. Did your screen come with a cable?

Tried three of them. Its really perplexing because the auction specifically said the screen wasn't compatible with the HD 5570, but I plugged it into my girlfriends 5570 and it worked just fine...not that that card is going to push the gaming content I have in mind. Yet when I plug it into the GTX 460 or GTX 680 its the same issue.

Could it potentially be a motherboard issue? I've got a Gigabyte X58-UD3R, but I flashed the BIOS and nothing changed.

I'm really at my wits end with this. The monitor works with a card its advertised to not work with, and it completly falls on its face with a card its reported to work perfectly with.

The monitor comes with the DVI-D. I guess it's just what everyone got with their monitor...but since there isn't such a slot on my laptop, I bought the Bizlink cable. One side is DVI-D, the other side is USB and display port.

It seems to me that that the settings for your Nvidia cards has to be the problem.
Not the monitor, not the cable, only happens with Nvidia. Chances of both Nvidia cards defective = minimal. Check your settings.

OK-- I am lucky because I have the ideal test environment. I use two of these monitors at work. I tested with a working power brick / dvi cable that I've used for 3+ months. I tested on 3 separate machines.

Here is the behavior. I have tested multiple times with both power bricks.

Monitor will turn on OK for 10sec-1min, and green problem will happen (regardless of power supply).
Turning the monitor on/off does not help this process. And the green issue quickly becomes worse line by line until it's like our screenshots.

Letting the monitor sit for a few hours (Yes, hours) seems to turn it back on to the 'OK For 10sec-1min'.

The shipped power brick seemed to cause the green issue to happen more quickly (though, this was not well tested).

Your graphics cards are fine, the dvi cables are fine, your monitor is bad, just like mine. I am trying to go through the return process now. Best of luck, this is a horrid situation, however, the seller seems to be working with me (also bigclothcraft). Will keep you posted if anything else important happens.


Edit: Does your GF's ATI card work on the monitor for more than 5 minutes? The green issue isn't immediate for me, it takes at least 10sec. I have only tested with NVidia cards here, (460gtx, 465gtx, 8800gt). Still think the monitor is bad, though!

EDIT again:

I have the monitor hooked up to an ATI card now for my friend, seems to be working just fine (5minutes so far). I'll end up just swapping an nvidia compatible monitor.. but what a nightmare. Maybe there's some nvidia settings that would make it compatible?
