Today: the thing stopped displaying and image! The back light is on and my computer still recognizes that the display is attached, but it doesn't show an image anymore. I have contacted dreamseller on ebay and will post back here with the results.
I have power cycled the whole thing several times. Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this? I'd really hate to have to mail it back to Korea.

Same exact thing happened to me, Ill explain my story.
Got it out of the box and it was working fine for about 2 hours, left for a while, then came back to a blank screen with the back light glowing brightly. Computer still recognized it and everything, just no image. I tried everything from different cable configurations and all, nothing brought it back to the original condition. I contacted Dream Seller and he told me it was likely the power as I did not have the correct adapter for Canada, even though I thought it would work based on others recommendation in this thread. Since then it has worked on occasion, sometimes the entire day until I turn it off and then back on, then it shows the blank screen again. It seems the longer I keep it off and unplugged the greater chance I have of it showing something when I do plug it in to test. I have a suspicion that it might not be getting enough power initially to "start up" the image. I have since ordered a replacement AC adapter with the correct polarity and voltage that works on worldwide input voltages (Canada included) and I hope this is going to solve the problem.
If you find anything to make it work consistently let me know, I will also reply in this thread once I receive the adapter to let you know if it works.
Good luck man
Edit: I have also tried reseating the internal cables in case there was a cable loose or something, still no luck.Edited by JNovster - 1/15/13 at 4:06pm
