    My Dell AS501 has the same problem. Without warning, several circular spots, one the size of a quarter, appeared near the bottom of the screen. Then, another appeared at the top, Also ping pong ball size. This has occurred over about a week. The good news is that one of the marks at the bottom of the screen has disappeared and the screen recovered, while the other one at the bottom is quite small. I "massaged" the large one at the top and a second, smaller circle appeared below it, but this vanished overnight. Since these are circular and one is at the top, The monitor has been in the same place for more than one year and has never been dropped, knocked over, or otherwise mishandled. HELP!

There is something wrong with the pixels.  There might be a mis-connection so they are dying.  Your best bet is to take it back or get it repaired.

Hi,I have a LCD monitor Philips 19 inch Black. From time tot time,appear one error... NO VIDEO INPUT , and then is made black and appear "Entering sleeping mode" . What I must do? Or for where...


Check that the Video cable (VGA or DVI) is not damaged, if you move it does the screen go on and off?

If not then the circuit board inside the screen is faulty and needs reparing

What causes black golf ball size spots to appear on edges of screen? can it be fixed?


the only thing that could cause that is that your monitor is going out and the screen is collecting the humidity in the air

Computer screen is black


Two things come to mind...

If the monitor is fitted with moister sensors it will as a safety measure not turn on, this can be due to damp in the room etc.

Second and more probable is the fuse has blown on the circuit board to the monitor. you will unplug power lead open back up and look for a smaller than plug size fuse which is chrome ended and clear glassed. About 3/4 inch long and 1/8th dia.

Ensure these are replaced with a similar graded fuse. Maplins is a safe bet to obtain them. best to take old one in with you.

Black spot is growing on my LCD Monitor


It is the LCD itself failing, no repair for the LCD itself, the screen will need to be replaced. Likely cheaper to replace the entitr monitor

Black spots appeared on 17" LCD Monitor-SyncMaster740N


you might have what you call "dead pixels" or a "stuck pixel" try a simple test like this one now it is not the most creative one, but it does help to see if that is the case. u might be able to Fix a STUCK pixel, but unfortunately you can not fix a "DEAD pixel" simply because it is DEAD.
try this website for simple fix instructions.
if is dead pixel what you have, if u can live with it, great, if not , it might be a good reason to get yourself an another monitor.

Good luck

if there are too many black spots already then that means there are lots of dead pixels on your lcd and it cannot be repaired anymore. that will continue to add more dead pixels and eventually damage the device.

Black spots


If you hit the screen, then there is noting you can do. the lcd matrix would need to be replaced.

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).
