Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 179

post #1781 of 3508
I just received my Shimian QH270 monitor today. It was working fine for awhile then the screen went black, but the back light stayed on. Also the blue light indicating power on is staying on and blue. Anyone have any issues like this or know what could be wrong?

So they have a preference to AMD cards then?? Kind of strange, there must be a setting somewhere, or a driver issue? good sign for me though as i have 2x AMD cards lol.. My monitor is still on its way, nearly a week since i ordered it, its in singapore at the moment, having just come from China and before that Korea.. It will have seen more of the world than me buy the time it actually arrives..

However, page after page lately all we have is people complaining.. To anyone out there considering buying one, you should probably think again!!! It seems as if the quality has REALLY tanked lately

Our batches of monitors from 04/2012 & 07/2012 were good, my personal one monitor from 9/2012 batch only seemed to work on AMD as previously noted.

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?

I'm contacting bigclothcraft for a refund as well as there isn't really anything at this point that can be done. I pointed out to them that it was ironic that my graphics card was listed as compatible with their Ebay listing, yet my grilfriends card (that it worked on) HD 5570 is listed as not compatible. What monitor do you plan on going with? I'd like to still be able to get one of these large high rez monitors, but this experience has made me a lot less gun-ho about it.

Well this is a bummer, All I can do is hope mine works with my GTX 670. redface.gif

This is a visual of my exact problem. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. Already contacted the seller. Thanks again.

These monitors are still awesome. I won't settle for less. We just got a bad batch. I am lucky because I'm just swapping out a working both nvidia/ati compatible monitor for one of our ATI machines (not a big deal).

I'm using one right now to type this, anyhow. Regardless, it's a a cruddy experience, but remember--you are getting it at 1/3rd of the price. No risk without reward. Bigclothcraft should be able to come through for you hopefully, seems like they care about their feedback enough.

edit also: bigclothcraft did say this:

Hello
I am sorry about that.
Of my item has fualty, I will exchange monitor.
May I ask you to change DVI-D cable and power brick?
Let me know result.
Best Regards
Thanks

They seemed to want to blame my card instead of the monitor itself so fingers crossed they actually process the refund. I'd love to get my hands on one of these that work with my box, really disappointed that after dropping the money on the 680 the problem didn't resolve itself...ah well now my FPS is through the roof smile.gif

Your going to have to send the monitor back which ive heard is really expensive.. i dont believe they cover that in the refund.. You would probably be better off cutting your losses and selling it on craigslist/ebay etc.
