Cool and thx...yeah do know about the screws and even just removing those can have an effect apparently. I have read a few different descriptions so far but am still not so clear on how to actually separate it properly on the sides but havent seen anyone say it was hard or whatevs so maybe I'm overthinking this.

Well I just did it and I'm still not clear exactly what the key was to it. I think once you get a loud snap and notice that it comes apart in that section quite a bit, that's when you know you've got it. Then just slide your tool along the groove and you should hear several more snaps as it keeps coming apart. I used a guitar pick instead of a screwdriver to leave less visible damage on the outside of the housing, but it still left lots of marks. And the pick is destroyed, lol.

Good idea with a guitar pick, gonna try it 2morrow. I'll have to raise it a bit more according to your test pic. : P
5 layers of tape seems to be decent enough though.
Btw, opening that thing is easy but it voids warranty. In my case sending it back would be too expensive though so i dont care.

edit: I can only see 2 lines of color, yellow and violet. Since the pic is 2560x1440 I assume the black line on the bottom should be visible. In my case its not so it appears im missing one pixel vertically.

As for warranty and sending back most sellers apparently claim they will cover shipping back withing one year (and I guess back again to you?) but first they have to agree it's worthy and who knows what else could go wrong and I would like to avoid ever having to do so if possible.

Actually I got a good tool for this kind of thing; at least I think I still do. Long black plastic deal that ends in a wedge and was sold for opening older iPods without scratches.

So there's no bleed with the bezel off, right?

I just took a picture when I used a black screensaver to see how the backlight bleed looks like after the tape mod, I used 2 layer tape (maybe should have used more) but do you think its ok or should I open it up again and put on some more tape??




FORZA INTER

Looks pretty good to me I doubt I would notice that much if at all during normal use (unlike mine at present...at least on one spot).

If tape isn't doing the trick, it might be the case of something pressing on the panel. Try the screensaver again but with the front bezel off, and use your nails or something to lift the metal frame away from the panel. If the bleed goes away, you gotta find a way to loosen the metal clips clamping the frame to the panel.
On my own monitor, I had to bend the frame a bit on certain spots along with bending the metal clips so they aren't so tight. Anything to stop the frame from pressing down on the panel once its put back on.


In other news, my Second Qnix arrived. This one turned out much better than the first having no bleed, but I have to raise the panel a tiny bit. I couldn't beat the pixel gods though, finding 2 stuck/dead pixels again. This time they're light blue and can only be seen on black backgrounds. I tried those pixel fixing videos but no luck frown.gif

I'm not home at the moment so I can't check, but I believe the bottom-most color is the magenta or violet as you call it. You can open it in paint or another program and zoom in really far to verify that I'm correct on that. Good luck.

Okay so I promised to post a picture of my flashlight cone light bleed. Anyone have something like this and if you did, how did you get rid of it. Oh by the way. I wasn't able to overclock my monitors to 120 or 110. They are sitting at 100. Going to see how far I can push Hz by Hz. biggrin.gif

Otherwise the bleed is very minimal everywhere else. However, the other monitor has a slight yellowish cast. Very minor. I wonder if I can fix that with a new color profile. Also, is it possible to push a separate color profile to individual monitors or is it global?

You can push per monitor and you should be able to correct the tint with a calibration.
