Re: black out in corner of screen is growing

If You see that black spot while monitor is off then the LCD needs to be replace. if not then check these....
Check the LCD panel (push a little bit from the black spot place if it loose colours then may be it is due to the improper connection with panel board.( check the voltage while changing the screen resolution, if everything is ok then......
LCD pixels burned. replace the LCD panel or if u want to use it as it is then decrease the brightness and don't use high resolution images.

It is very possible that the LCD is damaged. If the screen was pressed hard enough it can cause the components to become damaged. Repairing monitors is a lot more expensive then buying a new one unfortunately. You probably could get a 22inch monitor for under $180.

My ViewSonic va1930wm monitor has black spots.

How long have you owned it? Mine did the same thing. It was a dead spot which got worse. It was just past warranty (of course) but I took it back to Home Depot & they worked with me to get it replaced. Unfortunately, I think this is your only hope. The monitor dept. told me that once they get dead spots there is nothing you can do for them. Wish the news was better.

Monitor hit with a Headphone

The black spot can stop or keep spreading, but it will never disappear or reduce in size. This is caused from a leak of liquid between layers inside the lcd panel.
Nothing to do apart changing lcd panel. Bring monitor to nearest service and check if it is worth being repaired (changing screen panel).

Lacie 19" Electron Blue - Black screen with a brilliant white line across

I have 2 of these monitors and have this problem. I was so frustrated turning the monitor off and on until the white line disappeared that one day, I punched the screen. And it worked! So now whenever this happens (about once every other day) I use my palm and smack the lower left corner of the monitor until the white line disappears. I like the color on these screens so I don't want to replace them until I have to. I will NOT buy another Lacie though.
