[Official] BenQ XL2730Z Owner's Club - Page 47

post #461 of 837
Ugh, my monitor started flickering about a week ago. Different Displayport cable doesn't help. Does it on my PC with AMD and on my old laptop with a Nvidia Fermi. Anyone have a solution other than trying BenQ for a swap?

Try the service menu reset and/or disconnecting the monitor from power for an extended period of time.

Mine is doing the same thing (and I too have a fermi laptop). Service menu didn't seem to help, disconnecting it from power did (though only temporary). May try disconnecting it for longer.

Tried a 23 hour unplug. Helped for only a few minutes before it started again. Reset also doesn't help. Sigh, I guess I'll have to contact BenQ soon enough...

Well I haven't heard anything bad about their support so let us know how your experience ends up.

I've got my replacement monitor from amazon now, but he has the same issue and it's worse than before. There was !NO! backlight bleeding at the first start of the monitor and he also developed it after around two days of use.

Here is a picture of it: http://abload.de/image.php?img=20160423_162245z2j02.jpg

Did anyone of you have the same issues with the XL2730Z, or ever see backlight bleeding like this?

The oval figure 8 pattern of death? RMA it right away.
That pattern was seen on some PG278Q Rog Swifts, and first appeared years ago on the VG278H or HE 27" Lightboost monitor. I remember those threads all too well. There's even pictures on Hardforum if you do a search.

Some people suggested it was from something being screwed in too tightly or something flexing. Either way, only Callsignvega would know how to fix stuff like that.

So you say this pattern is well known from other monitor types? Have you ever seen it on some XL2730Z? I couldn't find other owner with this problem.
I will definitely RMA this monitor again. Amazon would send me my last and third monitor. I hope the third one is good, because this defect is not acceptable.

I've had the plan to open the monitor and check if it's a mechanical problem. But the BenQ has no screws. Just a special lock where you need a specific key to open the monitor.

Just got this monitor, looks fine and all, but unfortunately has 1 very small dead pixel near the top left corner... is sending back for a replacement the only possible solution? If that is the only option I guess I'm just going to ignore it

I would keep the monitor, if the dead pixel does not disturb you. Maybe you can try the program "UDPixel".

I dunno guys mine has been cherry, no inversion in any games, no weird power issues, no screen wake issues, acceptable BLB(for me and I like dark games) after setting it up. No problems with FS or 144hz also no issues running Skyrim, South Park and Hitman Abso at 60hz(preference).

I do use a very short 1m cable from Accel though. *Recommended by AMDMatt*

Good news is I might be selling the panel as my mobo is junk and I am probably going back to a cheap rig running 1080 @ 144hz.

My odyssey having my system built because I don't know how to do a custom loop has taught me to build yourself within your own means and don't trust anyone besides yourself to "test" hardware ...especially before plumbing it in to a hard tubed loop...
