Yeah...

Also, they let this guy submit a 5 egg review twice. The reviews aren't duplicates either, kinda strange someone would submit a review twice and change up all the content.

To those who used X-Rites ADC technology this may help…

On Saturday after reading that someone on this forum had used ADC with good results I eagerly used it to calibrate my x34. All seemed great and I was pretty happy with the results….until the monitor went to sleep for the first time. I started to get an assortment of flashing solid colors on the screen. At first I could not get them to go away. I had to hard reset my PC. After the restart windows came back up but all of my settings were gone.

Not knowing that ADC was the issue here, I used it again to calibrate. Sure enough, test mode popped back up when the monitor went to sleep and even worse after restarting my computer Windows 10 had gone into repair mode. Eventually I got windows to start again but it was very unstable. I got the blue screen of death 3-4 times over the next day and all games seemed to be randomly crashing. Test mode would turn on when the monitor went to sleep sometimes, not all. My settings kept reverting to default whether the monitor went in sleep mode or test mode.

I pretty much lost hope and was ready to RMA when I read you can do a hard reset. I tried button combinations 1 and 5 as well as 2 and 5 as suggested earlier in this thread but neither worked. In desperation I tried other button combos and found that pressing buttons 2 and 3 ( right to left) worked for me. The monitor rebooted and it has been fine ever since.

So while test mode is active and the solid colors are flashing. Press buttons 2 and 3 at the same time for a couple seconds and you will see the Predator logo. At that point you should be good to go.

A few side notes:

I took pictures of the settings ADC arrived at. One thing I found odd was that it set contrast to 45. I did a manual calibration using my i1 with contrast set at 45 and was able to arrive at 6500k. I was only able to get within +/-100 both prior to that. Has anyone else calibrated and arrived at a contrast level other than 50?

Also, I’m not sure if this is a placebo effect…I feel that changing “Aspect” in the OSD to 1:1 makes 2560 by 1440 games look sharper. They looked a bit blurry to me prior.

Anyways, I hope this info helps those that have there x34’s stuck in test mode.

Wow! Awesome news!

Those were my posts you were reading concerning calibration with ADC. Now you've got me wanting to leave work early and head home to test this out!!

I'll report back if it works!

EDIT: Not exactly sure what you mean by pressing the buttons when the "test mode is active"...Can I just hold those buttons at anytime now for a hard reset? How do I know if I'm in a test mode? Please clarify. Thanks!

I meant when you see solid colors flashing on the screen.

The flashing he is talking about is likley just the test mode most monitors have. It will flash test colors and not stop untill a certain button combo is pressed. I hope it solves your flickering but i think it may be a whole different problem with yours. sad-smiley-002.gif

I never really saw color flashing on the screen....I just see lots of screen flickering as detailed here with a video. Is that what you were seeing?

Unless you're just referring to the cycling of colors during the calibration process within i1Profiler? If so, I'm not sure how/why that would be the time to reset the monitor....should work at anytime?
