Ah, now I understand what you mean!
Thanks for the explanation.

I will make the changes today or during the weekend and report my results back.

Funny how it works. I hope all goes well too.. here's what he had to say so far.


I'll try to ask for a partial refund too depending on the amount they offer, ill decide whether I should just keep it or get an exchange. And do what pastuch did and bend the metal frame straight.

Just received mine today, its very nice indeed! I hope yours all gets sorted soon smile.gif

What the heck is that supposed to mean? They'll let you return the monitor, but first they're going to send your BLB pictures to the manufacturer (QNIX) to confirm it's a defect?

Sounds like BS, there's no way QNIX who likely produces 10,000+ monitors is going to spend time analyzing someones picture of backlight bleed. Don't let Green-sum stall you, the sooner you raise the issue up through ebay, the better.

LCD reduced moderately adjusts the timings to reduce the amount of pixel clock to the monitor. It adjusts this in a way that will be very likely to work. The method i presented earlier in the thread does this very same thing but it manually finds the best timings possible(as far as pixel clock is concerned).

Yea realized you could search the thread and so that, thanks for the info though!

Pixel clock@152hz..............569Mhz
...................................................^
this is the highest i have been able to go with CRU.

Okay, I decided also to fool around with the settings.

At first I was getting only the test-screen mode, as other people have said.
But after spending a few minutes more with it, I managed to lower my settings as described by Spartan F8.

I do have 2 simple tips / pointers when you are going to try this for yourself!

Tip #1
If you you get the test-screen mode (you will understand when you see it), you are way, way to high (or to low in this case with your settings). The only solution for this, to solve this problem, is by hitting the reset button on your PC. You cannot get out of the test-screen mode otherwise. At least this is what I experienced.

Tip #2
If you get a distorted screen, artifacts, excessive lines, etc. This means you are getting close. And you have to tweak one setting at a time and increase / decrease the values one by one, in 1, 2 or 3 steps.


I also have few questions of my own and hopefully Spartan F8 can answer these (or anyone else for that matter).

I noticed you used the following values:
Front porch (pixels): 48 x 2
Sync width (pixels): 32 x 2

While my defaults are like this:
Front porch (pixels): 48 x 3
Sync width (pixels): 32 x 5

Decreasing both last parts to "2", didn't do much for me. It didn't decrease the Pixel clock.
On the other hand decreasing Total pixels did lower the pixel clock for me. Not much, but I managed to get it to 382 Mhz, where the original value was: 403 Mhz. My overclocked refreshrate is 100 Hz. Not much of an improvement, but an improvement nevertheless.

I took 2 screenshots (original and tweaked) and uploaded them.

Original at 100 Hz
LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

Tweaked at 100 Hz
LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

Hopefully it's any use to someone else.

//update

I have also created a color profile based on the above settings at 100 Hz if someone is interested. I have included it as an attachment.
This color profile was created specifically (optimised) for the above settings (as seen in the tweaked screenshot), however it should also work with default settings at 100 Hz. Calibration was done for 160 cd/m2 through xRite i1Profiler.
