I was able to fix most of the BLB using the tape method that is being suggested at the front page of this thread and a few youtube videos on how to open up the monitor. Feel free to ask if you need any help. Now, the bleed that emited from the center (which is at the top in your case, was at the bottom in mine) is all but gone. I don't even notice the remaining BLB, not even when playing dark games like Dishonored at night.

This is the BLB after the tape fix. Mind you, the photo was taken with long exposure time, so the BLB looks worse than it actually is. Also, I didn't bother taping the upper part of the screen back then, which is probably the reason why there's still a decent amount of BLB there. I might get to it when I find the nerve and time...


If you don't want to take the risk of breaking something while using the tape mod, I'd seriously consider a refund or exchange on the sellers expense.

Okay, I think i'm going to try the tape mod. I've looked in the FAQ and it's a bit vague. I see how to open the monitor, but where exactly do you tape? Between the glass LCD panel and the metal frame? I wonder if putting a bead of black silicone or similar would block more. Could make a mess though.

typical lazy me decided to ditch the odd angle back design and go to a much simplified two box design similar to the factory x-star design. Still as small as i feel safe with but MUCH easier to bend and assemble for a nice consistent clean look.

Going to go spin up the cnc and start cutting i'll post some photo's after i mock up the first one. if everything goes smoothly I'll make two more and paint them up.

White lines are the pcb sizing and holes.

yellow lines are the 1/16" aluminum

blue dotted lines are bend lines.

as long as the cables are long enough I will be able to make the hook up points be on the left side or right side depending on how you screw together the two parts.

It's kinda hard to explain... Once you debezeled the monitor (meaning the metal bezel), you tape the part of the bezel that makes contact with your Panel, like explained in this vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJvC8SwczCQ&list=PLnVkA6ZcoQv5piavGXZDJv3Wj2E4MT_iE

@wntrsnowg or moderator: could you include this vid in the BLB-fix section of the OP? I found it very helpful and the present description is very vague.


The vid is from a 17 piece series, showing all kinds of dismantling the monitor, you won't need all of it, but some parts can be quite helpful (like were to pop the plastic frame to open up the monitor and such).

Here's the whole thing:

I tried new drivers and old drivers. I can move around on the screen but I can't see what I'm doing because it's still blank.
I have no idea what to do now.

I think it's because of the influx of orders they have trouble keeping up. Due to the $260 price. Mine was shipped on this Friday the 23rd estimated to arrive this Thrusday the 29th. I ordered it on the 17th didn't ship till the 23rd. I'm super excited tho biggrin.gif

Ooops, sorry, my bad! I don't know how I could have missed that! Btw, kudos for this thread, if it wasn't for you I might still be staring at that nasty BLB in despair.thumb.gif
