Hi, mi monitor recieved a front impact from a tennis ball but i was ok at the time, few days ago a saw some pixels that werent working right on the middle of the screen (then i thougth damm tennis ball!!) but later the bad pixels started to grow!!! and go up... they reached the top of the screen and i had a black line from the middle to the top... after a while.. the center pixels started HEALING!! they r fine now, but the "Stain" is moving now on the top of the screen... thats 1 problem... the other thing is that the monitor sudenly shutted down and the green light started to go on and off... and it keeps doing that.. im testing it now plugging it to my notebook to se if the problem persists. I really apreciate any help anyone can give me.
Hello! Sorry to hear of the Tennis Ball Masacre. I believe your problem to be twofold in nature. First the glass in side of the LCD screen is very fragile and the tennis ball most likely ruptured it. the streaks are most likle the liquid crystal solution leaking out. the dark streaks represent the absence of the fluid. Secondly, the monitor shut down appears to be from the back light / inverter circuitry. Sounds like it may be time for a new display. $40 to $60 for the inverter board and $80 or more for a new display screen, you may as well go the couple of extra dollars and get a new monitor. Hope this puts it in perspective for you. Sorry it is so bleak!
