Irun 27 inch ZT-SH270QHD Korean Monitor review - Page 3

post #21 of 47
So much for flawless. Heard a pop, and the left side backlight on one of the monitors blew out. Hopefully BCC can take care of it, or its easily fixable.

Ouch, haven't heard of this one before.

Yeah, lucky me. lol

I'm hoping its something as simple as a bulb replacement that I could do. The power supply has been working great, and the other monitor has been flawless.

I think it's fair to say that the Iruns are not without their fair share of problems. Whether they're worse than any of the others I don't know, but the assembling leaves a bit to be desired.

I had to disassemble mine (it faded to dark after a few seconds of active use), but refitting (just nudging into place, really) the inner connectors seems to have solved that. My friend's Irun had exactly the same problem and solution.

It's very easy to open the enclosure, without causing any damage, so you shouldn't be afraid of trying that. Of course, as is common with all monitors, don't just pry apart the panel from the assembly with force, since the internal connecting cables are quite short and you don't want to risk ripping them out of their solders.

I think I'll try to open my monitor to see if all the internal connectors are well in place as I can't quite pinpoint my issue, that would atleast eliminate one posibility. I tried unscrewing the case before and the bottom + top of the casing seemed to come of pretty easily, but in the middle of both sides there seemed to be something stopping me from prying it apart. Should I just keep pulling it apart or are there any plastic details that might be damaged?

EDIT: Used a plasic butterknife to pry the two plastic clips apart without leaving any traces of opening it. One connector seemed a bit loose (DVI-input to screen, which would also be the only one being able to cause the problems I'm having) so lets hope that was the problem. Screen seems to be working for now atleast.

EDIT #2: Did it fix anything? Nope frown.gif Restarted my computer and same result with the green boot logo and this is what it looks like when Windows has booted - http://i.imgur.com/x7IEx.jpg

Plenty of black screws to remove the bezel, then even more silvery screws to remove the panel from the main case. At least for me. After that, the only thing keeping it together was the internal cabling, which certainly can be pulled out, but for me it was enough to really squeeze the connections together (at least it works now).

Your problem looks a bit different, though, so your milage may certainly vary.

Get in touch with the reseller.

I actually had to open a case with ebay. BCC hasn't replied in 4 days.

I opened the monitor, and all cabling was set just fine. My problem lies within the panel itself, which I won't be opening further. The screen still works, but the left side is much darker than the right because of the blown backlight. Hoping the other monitor stays flawless.

BCC stopped answering me aswell when it seemed like my problem consisted of anything more advanced than changing the DVI-cable... Thankfully my problem seems to have been related to a setting in CCC called "Alternate DVI operational mode" that was ticked. When I unticked it the screen still acts up before the drivers are loaded, but when in Windows it works really well.

Using a Gigabyte HD 7950 smile.gif It seemed to work at random when I was using a Sapphire bios on it, but when I switched back to a Gigabyte bios then it stopped working completely.
