Question about HP P1100 21" CRT Monitor
Hello, I have a small annoyance with my current monitor. At two different places at my monitor I can see two slightly darker, vertical lines. They aren't black, they're just slightly darker than the rest of the monitor. The lines are hard to spot, but they are definitely there. I tried to turn off the monitor and turn it back on, but no result. Degauss did not work either. If anyone can give me any advice on this, please let me know.
This is completely normal and the lines are there for a reason. Due to the nature of Aperture Grill displays (i.e the majority of top end CRT monitors) there are two faint lines visable that look like there cutting the screen into a third. These lines are caused by two thin wires that run perpendicular to the grille which are used to maintain equal spacing between the vertical wires of the grille. It's very annoying when you first notice this, but you will get used to it.

If this is an lcd monitor,try to gently massage the area in which the lines are located,sometimes this can bring back what is referred to as dead pixals,there is a 50% chance that it will work,but good luck!

This screen uses a Sony Trinitron CRT and it's actually part of the invar mask if I'm not mistaken. This is a normal condition for this monitor.

Sounds like dried out electrolytic caps. How old is the monitor ?
