Color fades at bottom of screen

The color at the bottom of the screen is several shades lighter than at the top. Color gradually fades from top to bottom. Is this normal? Do I have a defective monitor? It is my first LCD and only 2 days old. Thanks.

It happens sometimes when the UPS is kept near the monitor, the electromagnetic effect fades the color.... so keep the monitor at least 12 inches away from any kind of electrical stuff.

Although it is possible that your monitor is defect, you should first run a monitor test to see if you just need to adjust some of the settings. Go to this webpage and just follow the instructions.
The test are done best in full screen mode (F11 in most browsers).

Do you have any sources of magnetic fields next to the monitor (speakers, halogen lights, sometimes even a cordless phone can cause distortion).

If you can, connect this monitor to another computer and see if the problem persists. This way you eliminate any hardware related issues (cable, video card).

If you have any more questions (also regarding the results) come back here and leave a comment. I will check back and see what else we can do.

Kindle Support - Is there a way to adjust the colors on my Amazon Fire Kindle? When I turned it on this morning, the normally black base color was a sepia or brown color. Any ideas? Thanks, Doug

First roll down the quick menu from the top of the screen and see if the Blue Shade is on, if it is turn it off. If is is off then you can go to the settings from there and go to Accessibility at the complete bottom on the left side and from there yo can adjust Color Inversion and Color Correction. However, it sounds like the Blue Shade has been turned on.

I want to dye my hair red. Does the color on the box really show you how it will look on your hair?

Usually the color on the box gives an indication of the color and shade but it's not an exact example of how it will look on your hair. Red colors have intense pigments so the color tends to last longer. Some experts say that red hair colors often come out more vibrant in reality than they look on the box, so go for a shade that is one lighter than the one you really wanted.

Color is lighter in center of screen. It started as a small bat-man cape shaped area at top of screen and has moved down the center of the screen over the past week. About 5 inches in width and light blue...

sounds like the alignment in the color guns is off. this takes a professional to repair and usually isn't too terribly costly if it's just a realignment. check your local directory for large tv repair.

The white circle behind the battery turned red! (Of my RAZR V3)

Normally phone companies put a liquid sensor in the back panel of phones around or behind the battery itself. If the sensor has at any time come into contact with water (even persperation[sweat]), the sensor will activate and turn a different color by means of chemical reaction. This lets the phone company know, when they ask you if you dropped it in water, if you are telling the truth or not. But that doesnt mean that the sweat couldnt have turned the sensor on either. If there is no problem with the phone then I wouldnt worry about it, if there is than be careful how you present your case to customer service when asking for reapirs or a new unit, because they may say no depending on how the issue is presented.
