Hey everyone,

I have a pretty new Archer 2 rig and every once in a while the monitor starts acting up. .

I attached a picture so you can see what it looks like. Has this happen to anyone else out there?

The only way I have been able to fix it is to turn the monitor off and back on and it is gone for awhile.

Should I send this back to tiffen?

Best,
Jake

Looks like the Matrix in the movie...Can you speak to the oracle?
But seriously, Call Tiffen and let them know.

I'm about to start a long job with the Archer2 as well that belongs to the client, Here's hoping its an isolated problem. The sled Ill be using has the same Marshall monitor.

Good luck, you should be fine. The Archer 2 up to this point has been a pretty solid rig for me. Never been a huge fan of the monitor though. To make it worst my Dovetail Locking plate (today) is not locking a camera down that is well within its weight range.

Iv tried to tighten down the screw and adjust it but it is not helping. I have a pretty long shoot coming up in october so I gotta move fast.

One of my Marshall monitors was doing that, it was the processor. It needed to be replaced.

If it was me I'd call Marshall and see if they will service it...
