Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 281

mad.gif Can someone test this for me?? Press power on your Achievia Shimian Monitor and when you do and the computer is off, should you get a back-light??

Trying to figure out if my back-light is toast or not, so I don't have to pay out the butt for round-trip shipping fee's. The seller says it may be my power prick, but the brick is reading 23.7v strong and I do get a blue light, but then quickly turn red... Confused please reply and help me out... thanks

Tested dvi cables and they seem both to work on single link monitors...I know that doesn't mean anything, but the back-light seems to be the issue.[/SI

Hey there, I just tried this. I turned my computer off and then hit the power button on the shimian and no, the backlight does not turn on. All that happens is the LED goes orange and starts blinking.

Most monitors have backlight bleeding though so I'm curious to see how much backlight bleeding is there.

I tried taking a picture of it in the dark but I think my camera auto-adjusted to the darkness, so my monitor pretty much just looks like a glowing white rectangle in the picture.
I can say though that it is only slightly noticeable in a dark room with a back background, and is not noticeable at all during normal use.

Almost able to convince my wife why this is a good investment!

I have a few questions. I hate paypal, with a passion. If I receive a monitor with might be broken, or have too many dead pixels, how easy is it to just skip the paypal police and just call my bank for a chargeback if the seller seems uncooperative.

All monitors will have the white rectangle effect because they all have slight backlight bleeding.

I'm a long term IPSB owner (pics way back in this thread) but I'm trying to help a friend who's received his IPSI screen today and has an issue.

From what I can tell he's having an issue where any image displayed on the screen appears to be overlapped. I.E If he displays a simple photograph onscreen it's like it's been multiplied and overlaps itself leading to a blurry image. Apparently it's the same in BIOS so clearly not a driver/windows related fault.

Has anyone else come across a similar fault?

Edit - He's now sent me a video



I'm not sure if it's a vertical scaling issue but it definitely flickers and there's some vertical separation of the image.

When did you order? A two week wait is quite long. I would demand it before Christmas.
