Recently moved monitor showing streaks

We recently moved this monitor and now it is showing green striations like the liquid inside the monitor has busted and is spreading. Could this be the case, or is it easily fixable? Thanks.

Do not plug it into the wall anymore, more damage or fire may occurr.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

This monitor is great. Just recently, after 3

It seems so.

1. Change the monitor cable and see if this still happens

2. Attach this monitor to another PC and see if this still happens

If it is still happening, then yes, it seems that it is failing.

Moved my pc and now the green light is flashing on the monitor. won't turn on. help! manual says to hit any button on keyboard or use mouse and it will come out of powersaver mode. mine does not

If you've moved your whole PC recently then you might need to make sure that the VGA cord is connected to the correct output on your computer and is screwed on tight. If that doesn't work then try replugging it.

Vertical green line somthing like an artifact

Your Display cable (inside your monitor) needs to be replaced.

I would look on ebay to try and find the part and then take it to a local tech to replace it for you as I would not recommend anyone take apart a monitor (LCD OR CRT) if you had never done so before.

OR, Buy a new monitor.

Monitor green where it should be black

resolder some components on the boards inside your monitor especially on the CRT neck board.

check also your monitor cable connection to the System unit.
also check if your video card was fully intact on the board.

Monitor will not turn on

Unless you recently installed new video or monitor drivers, it sounds like either bad cabling to your computer (check the cables?) or the ribbon cable inside the LCD monitor has come unseated.

The unseated ribbon cable problem is more common if you recently moved the monitor or dropped it a bit. You can open the back of the LCD monitor (unplug it first of course) and check to make sure the signal ribbon is seated properly, this is a common problem.

Good luck...

Speakers - no volume

double check that the speaker wire (green) is connected in the back of the monitor and into the back of your pc into the green connection, if it is and there is no sound you can always use a seperate pair of speakers, as it will be cheaper than repairing the monitor.
