My HP P1100 19" monitor is about 10 years old and has just developed black wavy lines on the sides of screen. Also, text is a little wavy at edges. I can see whatever is on the screen, but want to know if problem is fixable, or if I need to get a new monitor.

Re: Monitor has dark wavy lines on edges
Well... sure it fixable, but it is going to cost you a bundles... Since you own this monitor for about 10 yrs. It's time for you to give yourself a new LCD monitor for the Holidays... :) Have nice day!

It's dying. Pretty much simply that, something electrical or electronic (connections from panel to panel edge connectors, connection to circuit board, or internal to a panel matrix chip). Very likely unserviceable, if under warranty, take it back for service. Only other thing, check connector under back of monitor (if it has a connector at both ends). It's an Acer monitor, they aren't terribly durable, so if it's more than 2 or 3 years old, it's probably on it's way to deadville.
any vertical or horizontal line (any color any size) showing stable on the screen that is the hardware damage at the LCD panel back board ( call panel driver board) . it repair complicate but easy to do change LCD panel (common parts). you need find a PC service dealer to do so.
Although I still have the problem to a slight extent (very slight wavering of the vertical lines going from dark to light or white) reducing the contrast from 100% to 80% seemed to do the trick. Although this monitor is on the way out, it has lasted about 7-8 years now, at least it will keep going for a while.
