Question about AOC LM742 17" LCD Monitor
It's a cheap monitor
Posted on Aug 18, 2009
If your monitor is an LCD panel and not a CRT then magnetic interference is unlikely. If this just became noticeable over time and not suddenly, then I would guess your backlight is reaching the end of its useful life. It will probably begin to dim, even go completely dark sooner or later.
Now, it can be fixed if you know where to get the parts and how to install, but if your monitor is a few years old, I'd suggest replacing with a new one. Certainly try testing the computer with another monitor, and the monitor on another computer to rule out any other problems. But this is usually a symptom of the backlight as i said.
Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the great response!"
Check the monitor cable at both P.C and Monitor ends, ask a friend if you can borrow their cable to test on your screen

Anything magnetic close to the monitor can cause this happen. Make sure there is no magnetic interference.

It happened to my Acer LCD monitor and I returned it to the dealer which confirmed that the monitor was OK. We found out later that it was due to a faulty graphic card to which the monitor was linked to.
