I should have just gone with a Catleap (although I dont really like the bezel) and gotten an aftermarket stand ;p. Various friends of mine have ordered Catleaps (5+) with 0 dead/stuck pixels, sigh.

That sucks, now you're making me want a catleap.

Did you try massaging the screen? I posted a couple of pages back how to do it.

I contacted the seller of the formerly $23.99 power brick that shot up to 123.99. They said it was on back order and the price will go down when they get more.

Yep, I dunno if I am doing it correctly but I tried a variety of techniques. Wrapped the eraser end of a pencil in lint-free cloth and pressed on it, wrapped finger in slightly wet cloth and massaged area in a circle and nearby area, wrapped 3DS stylus in cloth and applied pressure/tapped screen. I also ran Jscreen fix for a few hours without any effect. The only benefit is I think I originally had 2 stuck pixels, as it isn't quite as bright as when i first started using my monitor.

How long should I be trying these techniques? I don't do them very long because I don't want to mess up the other pixels. Maybe that is where I am going wrong.

Not sure why he thinks a Catleap can't have the same defects... the jist here is that Crossovers have about the same rate of success on perfect panel as the Catleaps do. There's just a larger sample size on the Catleap, so it only looks like *everyone* is getting perfect panels. Proud member of the perfect panel club myself. Couldn't be happier with the purchase.

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. frown.gif
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.

Hi guys, I got two monitors working (me and my girlfriend both got CrossOvers). It's very strange, I used another of my friends' Catleap 110-240v power adapter and connected to his tower and it worked. So I figured it was in fact just the power adapter being 110-240v that did the trick, but I tried bringing his power adapter upstairs and using it on my other friend's tower and it wouldn't work. So it worked with my buddy's 4870, but not my other friend's 5850s in crossfire. Doesn't make much sense right? I'm building a PC this fall, so I wasn't planning on using the monitor much until then unless I get a new MackBook Pro and an active DP to DVI converter, but it bothers me that I can't be 100% confident that the monitor will work with whatever card I end up getting. Anyone have any ideas?

Also, I think there are enough people now who've had success with changing to a 110-240V adapter that it's worth updating the OP. Especially with information about the "power light turns blue and the screen flashes for a second and then shuts down" thing and how it seems to be caused by a problem with the adapter.

Edit: Doesn't make much sense that you can't vote for both "Perfect Picture" and "Problem with adapter" in the Poll.

Crossover ordered from dream seller. I can't wait to join this club soon and see what this IPS higher resolution craze is about! Better be worth it ;P

You should be able to. It's multiple choice. doh.gif

I'll see about updating the OP later tonight.

I can't seem to tell from the auctions which models are tempered and which are not?

You won't be able to tell the difference since all the sellers are using the stock reference photos. Just look at the eBay title and description.
