I received my CrossOver today, and unfortunately I'm having the same problem akg102 had:
I just got mine today. When trying to use the shipped power block, the power light turns blue and the screen flashes for a second and then shuts down. The light then turns red. What do you guys think?
My roommate has a Shimian which came with the same adapter I received (the Nanjing Frontek 230V one), and I have tried using his adapter. My girlfriend also bought a CrossOver and I tried her adapter as well, no luck either.
I have tried switching to his DVI cord and changed ports on the graphics card. I used his graphics card which he knows works with his Shimian.
Is there any chance that if I ordered a replacement adapter it would work? Or do you think that since I have tried three different adapters (albeit, all 230V ones), that my monitor might just be DoA. Would it make sense for the monitor to power up and then flash if it was DoA?
I do know that in the main thread, someone said they had a somewhat similar problem with a Shimian or Catleap and after opening up their monitor and they saw that one of their connectors had become loose and secured it and then the monitor worked. I'm kind of a newbie though and I don't know exactly what that would involve. Where would I look and how would I secure the connector?
Any advice is much appreciated.
