I still don't understand all this talk about burn in. A PLS panel should never burn in. It's not OLED, plasma, or CRT! Additionally, after using mine for almost a week now (leaving it on static screens for as long as 8 hours at a time) I still haven't noticed any burn-in-esque effect.

Well it did leave a trail, I'm not sure if you can call it burn in but it produced the same effect where the trail was always ontop of whatever your screen is displaying. It wasn't a static image that was left on for hours, my monitor "crashed" where it pretty much melted into colors, I grabbed a photo before I shut it off:


The screen flashed a few colors, then all of the screen went black except for this section where these bars appeared. I shut it off, but it still left a ghost image as you can see here:



http://www.gribble.org/lcdfix/index.html is fixing it so I'm going to keep going. I was lucky to know what to do because time is critical after something like this, you can't let your screen sit and let it sink in!

But I'm wondering about why the monitor went crazy in the first place. I messaged hulustar since the monitor might be defective, but since the burn in is being fixed I don't know if the seller will want to replace it and cover shipping charges for something that has only happened once and may or may not be an issue. Same with square trade, I don't know if I should file a claim. They don't cover burn in's, but I think they meant preexisting defects. If a burn in was caused by a monitor going haywire first, maybe they will.

What should I do? confusedsmiley.png Thanks

Oh lawd... this seems dangerous for the monitor if overclocking is causing these symptoms. A quick scan of your posts show you've been running it at 120hz? Maybe drop it to 96hz for the next few days and see if problems continue.

Some of the new AH-IPS panels are prone to burn in (U2713HM and S2740L) as were some of the older IPS (pre-2008) monitors.

Post edited for some important info. See above.

Progress:


It's still there a little bit but it can't be seen on the camera. So much difference between this and my previous photo. Only 30 minutes from the tool on that website and we're almost good again. Phew, I'm relieved, but still a little shaken up and worried for the future frown.gif

Not really "burn-in" for those totally freaked out by the ideas that come to mind from that term:

So.. has anyone with a poor overclocking monitor (as in scan lines or artifacts, not just "test failed" or similar at the driver level) tried opening up the case and putting some slim heatsinks on the PCB's components, or perhaps a small NB fan from a dead/obsolete mobo on the vents?

I got a Matte X-Star DP2710. Got it from Ta_Planet which had a great rating and good reviews. Ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Wednesday morning to NYC. Box graphics are cheesy, stand is very cheap (all things we know), but the display is just about perfect! $315 shipped. Can't find a dead pixel, just about zero light bleed. The only possible thing I can find that would make it an A- monitor is the lower right corner seems to be "in" just slightly. Almost like the housing isn't quite flush with the screen, but it is. Other than that, this monitor is perfect in every way. I don't know how long it'll last, but I've used it every day for about 2 weeks and it is just great (knocking on wood). The other thing is ta_planet's prices seem to fluctuate with demand. I was going to order an Achieva Shimian for $298 from then, and then it was $359. Again, I couldn't be happier! It's a Samsung Series 9 from everything I can tell. Yes, I'll take a $1200 monitor for $315 anyway... even with a millimeter of shim on the lower right corner.. thumbsupsmiley.png

Anyone here have their monitor shipped via UPS? If yes how much was the customs/duties fees?
I'm also wondering how you can self clear the package in order to save money from these fees but i would think the monitor will be here before i can do that due to the fast shipping hahaha.

Cheers.

First things first, if you live in the US there is no custom fees between USA and SK. I myself have order a monitor from excellentcastle and he is shipping with UPS. I asked him to put a 40$ gift value because in Canada, there is no custom on gift <60$. Have you ask for a specific price when you bought your monitor? But, most of the time, they will put a low price on their paper like 30$ even if you didnt ask them
