Wow, that bleeding is 10x worse than mine. Is this with the tape mod? Also, the yellowing, I believe can be fixed with a new color profile. That's how I fixed mine.

Being reading through the thread for the last few days and ordered the QNIX QX2710 Matt from BigCrolthCraft.

Does anyone know about taking out a 3 year warranty with SquareTrade for £35 or if it's worth it?

I've read about a few people enquirer about other Korean monitors but refused a warranty when inquiring since monitors may come with dead pixel but accept to provide a warranty for a pixel perfect Monitor.

but according to SquareTrades T&C
Exclusions - Your insured item is not covered for-
Repairs to LCD/Plasma televisions due to or arising from:
-unusual physical or electrical stress, burned screen or software interface problems
- pixel failure where the location or number does not exceed the manufacturer’s acceptable limit
- any damage caused during delivery or installation

So if I'm right 1 dead pixel isn't an excuse to claim on the warranty, But does not allow them to casually refuse you cover

The pictures last night turned out to dark or to blurry. But I have one picture that turned out okay that paints the picture as to what I did. To be honest I had no idea if I was doing it right since the OP has little to no detail on the tape mod. In one of the videos I see someone tape mod is done different than mine. In the video they actually got tape between the panel and the metal frame. I had trouble disconnecting the first connector and was getting tired so I gave up on removing the metal frame and just started to put tape along the edge and then turned monitor on while it was open to see how it looked and it did help so I taped the entire monitor all edges all the way around using the method in the photo. I used my finger nail to push part of the tape onto the matte screen there is about 8 pixels wide of a dead area between the panel and the frame that doesn't light up. I did all my taping with the monitor on with a blue screen so I could see where I was taping and to make sure I didn't tape over any pixels it didn't take long at all really.

Sorry I know the pictures are terrible... on the left of this picture you see how the tape is overlapping the seam slightly. This is what I did. I think you need really good electrical tape for this.


I used a wad of electrical tape to put pressure under the panel in the corner. This helped the backlight bleed more than the tape mod. Most of my bleeding was because the panel frame was bowed on the middle bottom of the frame. I also put some light pressure to try to bend the frame back where I saw it was bowing. After these two steps the big trouble spots where gone.

No the yellowing he is talking about was the bleed seeping through the image. Pre tape-mod; he already has pretty much fixed it.

By the way guys you don't need to quote every single picture in these half-page series of photos. Remove some please (or all if there is also text)...

it shows how to open it up and tape mod etc...

btw for those of you who can't hit 120Hz stable, just run 96Hz instead of 100,110 etc..

Why should we be running at 96 vs. 100, 100?

I just quote out of habit. Context and all that.
