Pikey There wasn't a manual supplied, not with mine anyway! ... it's just plug-n-play!

Anyway, mine has recently died after about 8 years service ...

the_observer @RustyBucket , thank you for your answer.

I finally managed to find my monitor's model which is Achieva Shimian QH2700-IPSMS

Does anyone know where i could download the manual of this monitor?
I have searched everywhere. I would be much surprised if someone could give me a heads up.

Thank you for your time reading this.

Splotch appeared on screen,

You should not need specific drivers for this monitor.
Use your video card manufactures drivers.
Appearing as generic is not uncommon afaik for monitors.
Ebay pages were the websites unfortunately, unless this has changed.

So within the last week, a large splotch has appeared on the upper right portion of the screen.
Looks like liquid damage to me but no liquid has been near it.
Saw some similar reports of Apple displays from around this era having similar issues.
Has anybody with this monitor ran into this? Any tips on fixing this?
This monitor is still great for me, keeping it in service until it bothers me to insanity or it dies.
Only issues I have had with it are a single dead pixel I can live with, and the occasional not wanting display properly when powered on initially (Have to turn it off and on a few times before the image displays properly.)

the_observer Hi all,

i am a noob and i need your help so forgive me for my silly questions.

1. How i can tell which model is my shimian monitor?

2. Where can i download drivers for it since windows 10 see it as a generic monitor?

3. I cannot locate the website of the company. Is there one?

Thank you for your time reading this.

I didn't ever figure out a solution unfortunately. Had to buy a new monitor instead.

nikelquint Hi, does anyone happen to have a pinout for the power supply? I got one for really cheap but I'm not really willing to dish out 50 bucks for a cable when I'm not sure if it works/ just make my own. Thank you

Basically, when I turn on the monitor, the light in the bottom right corner of the monitor turns from red to blue, as it should, and then the backlight comes on. Even though the monitor is plugged into my computer, no video is displayed. I've been able to temporarily fix the problem by unplugging the DVI cable from the computer and plug it back in - after trying this a few dozen times eventually the monitor begins to display again. It seems that once the monitor is outputting video it has no issues until I turn the monitor off again. Then I have to unplug and plug the DVI cable back in a few dozen times to have any video display.
Some things I've tried:
  • Using a different DVI cable - no effect
  • Using the current DVI cable with a different monitor - no issues
  • Checking monitor power and video connections to ensure they're solid and that they aren't dusty
I did some reading and wasn't able to find anybody with this issue on a Shimian monitor, but I found a thread where it was happening to somebody with another Asian 1440p display. It sounded like the problem was a dislodged ribbon cable in the monitor itself, but I just want to see if anyone in the OCN community has experienced this before I start tearing this monitor apart. Also, the monitor is out of warranty (just my luck ).

Pikey I would definitely try a new card!

Doesn't need to be anything expensive, as long it has Dual-DVI ...

On the other hand it could be a loose cable inside? , I believe back in the early pages of this thread there were instructions about fixing that ...

Good luck!

bryceton having issues with my shimian monitor, I DO NOT want to replace it because its soo good. perhaps someone here can provide guidance what is likely the issue.

-Monitor will randomly start blinking on and off (same with the blue light on and off)
unplugging power supply will allow it to work for awhile.

- have tried lowering brightness
- have tried clean install on nvidia drivers (though havent tried another card)
- its set to 60hz
- I did try keeping it unplugged overnight but issue continued.
- changed cables

Interestingly enough, it was happening alot like every couple of hours, so I unhooked everything and put it away for almost a month. this allowed it to have no issues for a full month...
noticed its back yesterday, though doesnt seem to be quite as often. (happened 3 times so far)
