I notice the name 'catleap' bandied about as if all catleaps were the same monitor. They're not. Catleap Jupiter isnt even an IPS panel but an AH-VA. Catleap Q270 SE is IPS but uses the 60hz PCB. Only the catleap Q270 2b has the overclockable PCB. There are other catleaps, ie, Q270 2c or 2d (which I dont believe are made anymore) which do not have OC'able PCBs. Then there is Yamakasi QH2711 which is an AH-IPS, a totally different monitor which (along with the Jupiter) may not work with the OC'able PCBs.
So any of these monitors to have a problem - or a fix for it - it may not apply to the others since some use different panel technologies. The catleaps with IPS panels and 60hz PCBs should be compatible with the overclockable PCBs since they use same panel.
Thanks for that... it's pretty easy to fall into the trap of using generic names when there are so many different versions...
Basically it come down to identifying the panel... If it's an LG LM270WQ1 then there should be no problems...
I have a 27" catleap for the last 2 years.
since I got it the left side of the screen appears blue when in black page. it's not always there , it appears for some time and then it gets back to normal.
I have two Yamakasi 2703's. The new one was purchased a little over a year after i got the older one. It came and you could tell it was not as bright as my old one but i wrote it off not really caring. Now all of the sudden it just got really dim as if the back-light went out or something along those lines. I took it apart and reaseated the cables and checked for blown caps and nothing. Even swapped power cables from my old one as well. No luck. I was wondering if anyone had some insight on what else i could try. The whole reason of getting another one was to match my old one. I doubt the screen is bad? Seems more like an electrical issue with the PCB?
Fault : Image takes a long time (20 min or so) to appear. Also has vertical lines on grey background.
Worked for: I don't know, just bought it this week.
Action: Plug in dual link DVI, power cord, press power and wait...
I just purchased a Yamakasi Catleap LM270WQ1 SA A2. I would need your help to determine what is causing this behaviour (seen in the following video). As you can see, the monitor's backlight lights up as soon as I press the power button. But then, the image starts to appear after a long 20 minutes.
I opened the monitor to check every connection and components. Everything seems fine from a naked eye view.
Replace cable (that would be too good to be true)
LCD screen is faulty. Need to get a new one.
I hope someone is going to be able to give me a clue onto what the next step is.
