Most of the time its just the power brick. Read some pages back to find more infos. I had the same issue about a month ago. Maybe u are lucky and can find some 12v/5a+ at home like i did.

mine was. I made a short clip of what happened in the beginning. One day later the monitor wouldn't turn on at all. My first thought was that some caps blew up and i took the display apart. The caps just looked fine and there weren't any chips with burn marks.

Here you can find some pictures of my PCB qnd the panel-pcb: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/mobile/folders/0B1b6g8a-ixEvUVhrem9pTGNiRjA

The darker spots on the PCB powerplane are normal and caused by higher temps over time.

I was looking for a replacement PCB for about 2 weeks. Contacted several sellers on eBay like greensum and no one could provide a new or refurbished PCB. IMHO is the best chance to buy a display with a broken screen if you can find one and scavenge the PCB. If you could provide pictures of your PCB we could maybe help you to replace the broken components.

Well thanks for the reply seems i'm not the only one having trouble getting this board . I have done the same thing contact multiple sellers of this product as well and everything pointing at buying a bust screen monitor and just swapping the parts, but with another new monitor costing nearly the same as the busted used monitor its hard to really pull that trigger. I guess if anyone looking for a good condition working screen for the qnix i got one and i'll sell it at a good price.

This happened to me a few years ago. I had one of the early gen Qnix (2012/2013) and it died after about a year of usage. I ended up buying another Qnix (2014) which couldn't OC as high, but did not have any color shift when overclocking to about 105Hz. Since I was curious, I ended up swapping the board of the new Qnix with the dead board of the old one and I was able to overclock to 120Hz, which wasn't possible with the original board.

I suggest getting a better and cooler-running power supply for the Qnix. It should deliver cleaner power and help with the board longevity.

Here's a link to my old post about swapping the boards/panels as well as the power supply that was recommended to me:

Can I still buy a "new to me" 27 inch overclockable 1440p qnix monitor somewhere?

EDI: Would something like this overclock to at least 80+ hz? http://www.ebay.com/itm/QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-ll-DP-Multi-Matte-27-2560x1440-Monitor-Refurbished-/131131920531?epid=1560161732&hash=item1e88125093:g:4cEAAOxyni9TFuZd

I wouldn't push my luck with a refurb multi-input. Multi inputs have never overclocked as well as dvi-only ones, as you probably know. Especially the earlier ones. Also the dead pixel policy is pretty mediocre.

These units sound like old QNIXs that got retired from an internet cafe and are up for sale after some light seller refurbishment. If I were you, I wouldn't buy one.

Amazing, it has soon been 4 years since I bought my QNIX, just unbeliavable how good it was back then and even how good it is today even. Probably the best money ever spent on anything PC related for me.
I even ordered it as Glossy back then and found a real Glossy panel underneath the Tempered Glass on top of the monitor which seemed pretty rare back then.

Paid 320$ for it back then including shipping.
