Not sure the actual technical size/threading, the few that I found around my place were very similar to those already there. But they weren't as long as the ones included (maybe a mm or two shorter), so I had no issues with damaging the backlight.

Hi there

After further inspecting my monitor, I noticed that Light Bleeding on it was very very bad.

I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix it, or what Big Cloth Craft's return policy was?

Cheers

He'll probably tell you that it is typical. He normally doesn't take returns for back light bleed. Most screens are like that though for these Korean ones. I just got lukcy with my second one. My first one was exactly like your but i damaged it trying to fix the screen

I got my Potalion 2710QW and had trouble getting it to work with my Fedora 17 / GeForce GT 610 system. The NVIDIA drivers complained about bad EDID. Just to be sure I hooked it up to the motherboards Intel HD2000 DVI port and the Intel drm complained about the EDID as well. I dumped the EDID for my monitor and got...
Code:
000000 00 ff ff ff ff ff ff 00 51 f0 9b 04 00 00 00 00
000010 28 15 01 03 a5 3c 22 78 22 6f b1 a7 55 4c 9e 25
000020 0c 50 54 00 00 00 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01
000030 01 01 01 01 01 01 56 5e 00 a0 a0 a0 29 50 30 20
000040 35 00 55 50 21 00 00 1a 00 00 00 fc 00 54 4f 50
000050 53 59 4e 43 0a 20 20 20 20 20 00 00 00 fc 00 0a
000060 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 00 00 00 fc
000070 00 0a 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 01 08

The next to last and last bytes imply that there's an extension section to follow and that the checksum is correct. There actually isn't a valid extension section after this and that confuses the driver. To get the monitor to work I modified the EDID to:
Code:
000000 00 ff ff ff ff ff ff 00 51 f0 9b 04 00 00 00 00
000010 28 15 01 03 a5 3c 22 78 22 6f b1 a7 55 4c 9e 25

000070 00 0a 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 00 09

TOPSYNC.zip 0k .zip file


to remove the extension section and saved it as /etc/X11/TOPSYNC.edid and added the follow to my xorg.conf and it now works fine.
Code:
Identifier "Monitor0"
        VendorName "TOP"
        ModelName "TOPSYNC"
#       Option "DefaultModes" "False"
        ModeLine "2560x1440" 241.500 2560 2608 2640 2720 1440 1443 1448 1481 +hsync -vsync
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Device0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    Option      "CustomEDID" "DFP-0:/etc/X11/TOPSYNC.edid"
        #Option "UseEDID" "False"
EndSection

Besides ghosting, it also looks like the pixel clock is off, or something in that vein as it appears to have a very slight grid/vibrating pattern to it that I don't think the camera really captured well. The DVI cable works perfectly fine on a 1920x1200 display.

The image was a notepad window opened with some text in it, left in place for ten minutes before moving away.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what may resolve this? I'm not going to go purchase a 15$ DVI cable as no where local has any in stock. Thanks.

I have the EXACT same issue, + this, which is fixed by turning it on and off once or twice.

here's the line you're refering to, disappears in about 10 mins

I got mine a few days ago, one is fine, the other has a pretty annoying issue. Powering off when random stuff is on the screen and lines through it. A video is below;

What graphics card do you have? I would try removing any GPU overclocks. My 4850 can't handle my Potalion and Dell on OC.
post #298 of 322
When those lines start appearing, I pull the plug on the power brick and then plug it back on. seems to be working again after.

It's a bit scary though.

Move everything away from the monitors, I had issues with mine and it was due to device interference from my router.

Do you use ANY wireless mice or keyboards?

Looks like a bunch of these monitors are not EMI Shielded.
post #300 of 322
Yeah, looks like they aren't EMI shielded well at all, the DVI-D cables they come with aren't shielded either.

I moved the powersupply away from the monitor (had it sitting behind it) and it is all good. When I put it beside the DVI cable too it also does it (i tried it with the DVI cable from the good monitor and it did the same thing so it isn't the cable. The good monitor doesn't seem to get any interference (i mounted the powersupplies on the backs of the monitors on the VESA mount point to get rid of some clutter) so thats pretty weird.
