    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    VRR does work in 1080p mode, I was using it in Horizon, you can also turn on a setting within the monitor to show the actual frame rate at the top left of the screen. Everything work’s fine so far apart from VRR in 1440p mode, maybe they can add it later? I checked out Gran Turismo 7 in 1440p...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Sony have added 1440p support to the PS5 in a beta firmware, hopefully HDR, VRR all work fine too as it currently does on 1080p mode. Will test later when I’m home. https://blog.playstation.com/2022/07/28/ps5-beta-introduces-1440p-support-gamelists-and-more/?sf259200275=1 Edit: looks like VRR...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Anyone calibrated it with an i1 display pro? There are so many settings I need a good guide so I can just leave it in HDR mode. The picture is stunning, finally good blacks and HDR on a monitor.

    Yeah exact same problem I had, it worked for a few years but gradually got worse where I would have to turn it on and off multiple times. It got to a point where it would never get past the green. Hope you find a fix but enjoy it while it lasts!

    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    I have sold it on eBay, just waiting for the guy who won to collect. I would lower the brightness like you said on startup in the past when it worked, when it would start up there was a green tint / washed out look to everything. It would settle after 30 mins so then I would bring the...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Yeah I have bought it for PC but it’s a bonus if I could use it for PS5. I would then get rid of my dual monitor setup. It’s not getting delivered till June so maybe Sony adds 1440p support by then, one can hope!

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Is there no way to run a PS5 at higher resolution than 1080p on this? It’s been confirmed the hdmi port won’t accept 4K and downscale the image like some monitors do. I was thinking maybe an active hdmi to display port adapter, so PS5 sends 4K to the display port and the image being downscaled...

    yeah I put it on eBay, I’m sure someone can fix it. I had taken it to a few repair shops in my area but most of them refused even when I said I will pay upfront even if they can’t fix it. shipping abroad is too much effort, would ideally need a solid wooden box and it still may get damaged...

    This is the same issue I had with my GDM-FW9011. Haven’t found a fix it was doing this for 2-3 years and now it never gets to a clear screen. Always that green screen with lines then it auto shuts off. Here’s a video of mine: The flashing light is most likely the Auto Brightness shutoff as...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Samsungs own version which is yet to release will probably have BFI but they haven’t done it well on the Odyssey screens. They should get BlurBusters to look at it ideally.

    I have the SGI GDM-FW9011 monitor sitting in my living room, it turns on for a second then turns itself off. Anyone want to take it off my hands for spares or repair for a reasonable price? I'm located in United Kingdom, England, Birmingham.

    I really want confirmation on this also. Any news on Samsungs own G8QNNB version being released? Might have HDMI 2.1 if they do without the Gsync module.

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    I have tried getting it repaired, two guys said it was the tube. Maybe they being lazy? They said they physically opened it up and couldn’t figure it out. It does not stay switched on anymore, after 30mins in that older video it would be fine after the initial green flickering. Right now it...

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    I have shown it to 2 people who repaired CRTs years ago and they think the tube has gone. Is it the end of the road and I have to now just throw it away?

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    Yes, I tried this when I did windas, same issue and now it never stays on for me to calibrate anyway. The picture always would settle and look great after 30mins.

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    Anyone got an idea which capacitors are worth replacing to get my monitor working again? Maybe the ones on the power board? If you take a look at my old post, my monitor would have a dodgy boot up and be fine after it maybe got warm? Same issue but now it never stays on, i get a picture for a...

    Samsung Odyssey 1440p VA monitors 240hz curved

    How good is this monitor scaling down from 4K or scaling up from 1080p? I want it mainly for PC but as the PS5 doesn't support 1440p it would be fed 1080 or 2160p.

    I had this green issue when I was doing a windas calibration. It happened because I picked the wrong model number in the windas program. I have the SGI branded GDM-FW9011, I was picking the GDM-FW900 and doing the calibration and it would always be green on startup. When you pick FW9011 it...

    I’ll try the Argyll steps next, I didn’t do anything with them first time round. Graphics card is a 980 Ti. I want those inky blacks but it’s still day time here and the room has white walls!

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    I think I have done it, note I haven't done this in a pitch black room, need to wait a few hours till its really dark. Changing the model number has fixed the green tint I always had before, its odd that the FW9011 lets you flash the eeprom with the FW900 data and screw things up. If...

    I’m in the middle of the white balance but I remember the two numbers being 145 and the next screen being 80. That’s me doing the black level by eye. do you mean trying similar numbers?

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    Is there a way to restore settings from an old eeprom backup file in windas to a new one? Im asking because i overwrote my old settings in notepad, i only changed the G2 value but i have read after notepad messes up the formatting. edit: scrap the settings, I just noticed I had the wrong...

    I’m going to do a WinDAS white point balance using Spacedivers guide. I have bought the cable and a DTP94 off eBay, just waiting on delivery. Is there a reason why it’s so cheap in comparison to the i1display? Less accurate?

    I had a similar problem with mine, I posted a video of it in an earlier post. I think it’s an auto brightness limiter fail safe when the CRT starts up. For some reason the monitor gets too bright on initial boot. What I still have to do to get it working is switch the source switch on the...

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    It actually turns itself off if it’s getting a signal as it gets brighter and brighter that’s why in the video you see me change the source. I always get them lines on a cold boot up whether I keep turning it off and on or not. So no it doesn’t prevent the retrace lines. When it’s warm I can...
