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!

Is it ok to let my dog play with tennis balls? I notice that the fur comes off and the balls are easily ripped apart.


Tennis balls are among the favorite toy for a dog, however the problem is the fur off the ball is very bad for a dogs teeth. The fur eventually comes away from the ball and it wears away the tooth enamel. Also another risk factor is choking. You should give your dog balls that are specifically made for dogs.

Screen goes pink and green starting with a few pixels


Best thing to do, try a different known working monitor to hook up to the computer. If the screen works and doesn't change colors then you know its the original monitor that is bad.

If you hook up the known working monitor and the same problem happens then you know its the video card that is bad and the video card would have to be replaced.

Water spill on my AOC2216Vw LCD Monitor


Hey man, thanks for coming to me. Um yea, massaging may help but too hard will do damage since it is LCD is Liquid Crystal Display and it is fragile and easy to damage. The water should clear up in a few months, if not i would look at replacing it which can be costly. Here is a link to fix your unstuck pixels

Now im not liking that bit about how you mentioned was spreading so leave it for about two days, give the therapy for the screen a try and let me know if the laptop screen is healing. For the moment if you have one i recommend you hook up a VGA Monitor, old school stuff if you can and give the LCD a rest. I will post as a solution but comment back and i will keep helping you as much as you need it.

Creeping black pixel line.


Hi mrtaz187,
Well it sounds like the monitor pixels are starting to fail. Once you notice the pixels starting to fail, you will probably notice that over time it get worse. I had the same problem on one of my monitors too. I think it's time to replace that monitor. On the good side, new monitors are relatively inexpensive. You might think about getting a name brand for your new monitor too as it will usually have a warranty for problems like this in the future.

Hope that helps,

Take care,
Michael

Samsung SyncMaster 913v Monitor


if there are too many black spots already then that means there are lots of dead pixels on your lcd and it cannot be repaired anymore. that will continue to add more dead pixels and eventually damage the device.

LIGHT BLUE VERTICAL LINE ON MONITOR


The vertical line is a bad pixel sensor at the edge of the screen, your screen has hundreds of vertical and horizonal pixel sensors. This is an indicator that the screen is going out and need replacing.
