I went through the same thought process with mine, but after watching that teardown video I came to the conclusion that trying to replace or fix the bulb was a fool's errand. Even if you could get the led strip off the panel (and it isn't clear from the video that you even can) it is probably just that, a led strip without replaceable bulbs.

My advice, don't mess with it, don't even take the bezel off to "see what it looks like", because all you do in that case is give the seller a reason not to refund it.

I know this is a long shot but I tried to do the VESA mount mod after debezelling my Qnix and now my screen is flickering weird colours and I'm not sure what went wrong. I double checked all the connections and they were all plugged in fully nice and snug. Does anyone know what might be the cause of the problem? I know my LCD is not broken because when I unplug of the wires (the one that connects to the top left) the screen starts rotating full colour pixels (red, green, blue) and it can display these colours perfectly. I'm not sure what else to do. frown.gif

The QNIX drivers are the qnix.inf file thing right? I've updated the monitor to install that file restarted and it still has the same problems.

The monitor is still detected as DVI, is it supposed to change to QX2710 or something?


EDITED: Alright I feel like an utter fool. Its happening cause of the internal windows scaling. Weird how it didn't affect my achieva monitor.

Ran into a problem today, and well I'm not that knowledgeable about monitors. I often check this thread, so figured hopefully some kind soul may help me.

Long story short, I sell monitors online, and recently had a customer contact me back regarding a recent purchase.

The product in question is a QNIX 2710 Evolution II LED DPmulti. We had the title unfortunately listed as the QNIX 2710 DPort. (We shipped out the DPmulti)

The two products are in identical and specifications, design, panel, etc. From what both my distributor and also the manufacturer tells me is that they are the [exact same product], but they just renamed it in order to raise the price (the DPort was released in June/13, and then the DPmulti December/13). Whether that is 100% true or not, I guess only the manufacturer will know.

Customer contacted me today with the following message:
Quote:
For my intended use for triple monitor gaming the monitors all need to be identical. I tried setting it up but it appears that the sync polarities are not the same in the DPMulti as they are in the two DPORT models I currently have

Could someone please help me understand the exact problem? I don't see any issue (for ordinary use) that the monitors are different models.

Hoping to possibly receive a solution. If not, we'll have to receive the monitor back from the customer tongue.gif.

Thank you everyone very much in advance.

EDIT: Okay, after some more research and conversation with the manufacturer: The DPmulti has a different board and is supposed to supported 120Hz. Also some Googling tells me that my customer is trying to use nVidia Surround (?) and the monitors need to be the same polarity for this to work.... Still looking for a possible solution.

EDIT again: PS- Please exclude me from the above hate-- my company actually does thoroughly test our monitors frown.gif. Or at least since I've started working here (since I do them myself ^^).

that is the driver indeed, and looks all properly installed smile.gif

As for "windows scaling" - what do you mean? Would be nice if you posted the solution, in case others face it.

As far as I'm aware none of the DPmulti etc ones do 120hz - that's false advertising by the manufacturers.
-> proven via the True10 model.

Morning all

My Qnix has come - and its Awesome - no dead Pixels, and no BLB as far as I can see.

Really could do with a hand on the colour profile piece though - I've clocked to 96, but its really bright.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Which is really interested, considering that I'm looking right now at a e-mail they sent out to all the sellers containing instructions on how to overclock to 120Hz.

Silly manufacturer.

well what was their method? Would be good if you shared it with us, as the way to do it is very simple. But checking it's stable and doesn't skip frames is another thing.

ICCProfile.zip 11k .zip file

i found this profile to work a treat. you can use Colour Sustainer to apply the profile.

If you find that one to be too bright then i also suggest the 6500k profiles from this pack from @yasamoka, the 5000k is perfect for nights.

hope this helps.

Bigger problem - I can't get any ICC profiles to apply in Windows 8, they make no difference.

I found an article that say you need to run Windows 8 Display colour calibration first, but that errors...:-(

A bit stuck atm.
