Crap... i received a bad M70 Plus

Postby ahdai » Tue Jun 02, 2009 3:17 pm

I received the M70 Plus awhile ago and tested it to have the following problems so far.

Severe problems:
Two dead pixels. (dark spot)
Two bad pixels. (permanent on, extremely eye catching!)
TV out not working.(garbage image and interference sound)

Negligible problems:
FM radio not working.

I am really not happy about it. Have opened a support ticket and hope they will do something. I will not use this set for sure. :(

Upon discovering the bad pixels I immediately tried 1 full hour playing the flashing colors video. Didn't work. My brother found another tiny bright spot.

I will return it anyway since there are two dead pixels. Just wish the admin contact me fast...

Please allow for 3 working days for a reply and don't open new tickets.

Sorry to see the dead pixels, its not new, happens with Onda players too, all these guys in order to cut costs are going cheaper on screens, not like they used to be.

So you don't get any audio out of the earphone jack? Also make sure you are using the TV out correctly, its not just a matter of plugging the cable in, you have to turn it on from the on screen display when watching a video.

Earphone jack is working fine. But not the tv-out jack. I understand that to enable the tv output i need to press M button twice when playing video. When i do that, the LCD powers off correctly and tv receives a signal but is all static noise. The L & R audio is also giving interference noise when enabled. When i switch back to LCD, my tv displays no signal. Tried on CRT and LCD TV, same problem. The tv-out don't work.

The bad pixels are more of a concern, keeps getting my attention lol.
