I apologise in advance because this will be a long post...but some might find it interesting.
Several weeks ago i posted about a crossover a friend bought with strange red artifacts on the screen.
You can read the original post here
In the meantime i have travelled to my friend with a bunch of spare pc's and videocards and my yamakasi to try the monitor/pc out with a variation of hardware to make sure the monitor was failing.
Turns out the problem is in the monitor and since sending it back costs more then the monitor costed my friend told me to get rid of the monitor, i suggested to take it home with me.
I of course did a variation of tests at home but i couldn't really do much to 'fix' the monitor, until i got the crazy idea of explaining the situation to the seller i got my yamakasi from (green-sum) and ordering another same model crossover from my seller (the malfunctioning one comes from another seller).
The reason why i ordered another one is to be able to swap the pcb's from the good new one to the bad one and see if it fixes the problem by replacing the pcb.
Now, it turns out that my new crossover has a rev.02 version of the pcb and the malfunctioning one has a rev.03 pcb; and the wiring is different.
The led pcb is identical and i tried to swap those but that doesn't fix the problem.
See included pics, i have other pics with the wiring visible if anyone wants to see that.
Also the led pcb is on the other side inside the monitor.
What i really need to know is the details of these different pcb versions, and specifically about the 'all in one' pcb i read about here.
I think it would be good for this thread if users that feel up to opening their monitors took pics of their pcb's, it might be valuable information for others users with troubles.
For now, since the pcb's are different i can't swap them to try so the only thing i can do is order a new rev.03 from my seller but i could use a picture or serial number/type of the 'all in one' pcb, if anyone has one.
And of course if anyone has ideas or opinions what i can try your comments are very welcome.
