Bluefin OLED monitor - help!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

My Bluefin monitor seems to be playing up.

 

When plugging everything in, the monitor shows a pink colour and I can't work out why.

 

I've attached a photo to show the colour, it is strange as some of the cameras icons are visible. I've tried my spare camera tray and have ruled out the cable as it occurs when using both.

 

I'm using a Bluefin HC7 and a Sony hdr-hc7e video camera.

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

 

(I've submitted a query to Light & Motion three days ago and haven't heard anything yet)

Interesting problem...

 

It's been a long time since I used an L&M; usually no problem with that particular piece.

 

I can recall getting the wire pinched while closing the back - it was hard to diagnose since the outside of the wire looked OK. Also, if the other end of the wire wasn't plugged all the way in, problems...

 

The solder joint between the cable and the monitor (inside the back itself I think) can also cause a problem.

 

Here's one of my writeups that may help with diagnosis (or not!): http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=47022&hl=%2Blight+%2Bmotion+%2Bproblem&do=findComment&comment=312482

 

Be careful with this - it worked fine for me; you may not be as lucky.

 

L&M replaced the motherboard in the OLED back under warranty and all was good. Maybe yours needs that?

 

It couldn't be anything simple like the flip filter being in place when you wanted it out of the way, or the white balance way off and needs to be redone? You have no doubt tried these but I needed to mention them just in case.

 

No picture was attached to your message, so couldn't see what you were seeing.

 

Tom
