[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 2519

Based on the ebay listing you should have no issues with 1440. Can you snap a pic of the connection and your cable?

Also can you connect to an Nvidia setup and see if this is a GPU issue vs a panel issue? Any other computer you can test on? Seems strange to have the problem unless, and this is a wild guess, that your input PCB is faulty in some way limiting the signal.

Can you do the fakey 4k that it says it can?

Update:

I think there are fake QNIX monitors in circulation.

I have connected both DVI-D and HDMI to the monitor and it only supports 1080p and nothing above that. The image quality is blurry and not native. I hooked it up to my brothers machine which uses an Nvidia 970 and had the same problem with the monitor unable to go past 1080.

As you can see after connecting a DVI-D cable it shows my PC picking up a DVI-D connection but the monitor is picking up DVI only.



Here is the ports on the back of the monitor:

Dual link DVI is plenty to hit high refresh rates at 1440 so it isn't the cable. Sounds like a dud - possibly a bad input PCB - doubt it's the panel since it is working at 1080.

Since the 970 doesn't push the panel past 1080 my money is on a bad input PCB or TCON. Thousands of panels are run much higher on dual link DVI (and I ran several with an old 970 at 120hz).

Sorry may have to get a replacement unit mate. Be interested to see what is what on the internals (pics of the PCB, TCON, adn Panel sticker) to see what they are tossing in there.

I really hope not thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif I will have to ship it back to south korea, no idea to get my duty money back... I should have just got a branded 1440p.

I just ordered a replacement DVI-D cable and a HDMI 2.0 cable in a last attempt to try resolve it. If it is faulty I will have to just throw it as I have no idea how to return it.

Here is something very interesting (I think it is anyway)

I play DayZ, I run the monitor at 96mhz, I set v-sync to on in game and game runs at 96fps b/c the 1070 can drive it at that @1440
I made the custom refresh rate in the Nvidia control panel.

So here is what happens
Because of the bug with the pascal crashing O/C monitor on boot, I set refresh to standard 60hz, like normal, machine starts fine.
When I launch dayZ, the refresh rate kicks up to 96hz and when I finish playing it drops back down to 60hz!

How the heck does it do that? It's awesome.

I have checked the fps in game and sure enough, 96fps steady. I keep the control panel alive in the second monitor and watch it switching back and fourth.



Cheers

I've enjoyed this display for 1.5 years, but I'm not sure what to do now. I can't tell if it's a monitor or power supply problem... and I'm surprised this happened to anyone else yet. Actually, I was running this monitor at 110hz for ~16 hours a day with maximum brightness (I think most people don't use max brightness), so maybe power required for full brightness is what broke it. In any case, I'm not sure what to do now, whether there is a fix or replacement part I can use, or if I should just trash it.

IN the latter case, is there any good monitors to replace this monitor with besides another Qnix or x-star? Maybe the monitor landscape has changed in the last year?

this just happened to me. monitor would just continue clicking and make a popping or clicking sound. i left it doing that while i was looking up on google, after about 3min, the monitor turned on and it's been fine for 15min now.

could it be the power cord/supply? is there a good replacement on amazon someone can link?

Some games can run at non-desktop refresh rates and some can't (or don't). As long as the desktop refresh rate is less than 80Hz, reboots will be fine, and then the game can run at the higher available refresh rate.

I had a similar issue a while back and it was the input PCB that had failed. It caused the power supply to click with the green power light on the brick to kind of dim to each click. I have a total of 4 different Korean monitors and have had no issues with the bricks, but 3 of 4 input PCBs have failed on me since 2013. Now I have replacement parts I am happy with the IPS panels again.

i have absolutely no idea what that means. what is an input PCB? is this on the AC adapter? like i said, it was clicking for a while then it started working and has been working for few hours now. what would you recommend i should do? i would love to have a plan in case it happens again.

thanks for your reply

i found this and the member claims that a replacement of AC adapter fixed his problem so i'm hesitant to think it's something much more complex.

That stinks! Dunno about the cables, seems strange that both would not push past 1080. If it doesn't work with new cables I would crack it open and look at the internals. If you could post up pics it would be helpful to others for sure - especially if they run into similar issues.

One quick question - you aren't connecting both DVI and HDMI at the same time correct? I assume not.
