    Is this monitor toast?

    woke up this morning, turned on my computer, and my left monitor looked like this. What does it mean? Toast? Figures i just cleaned my home office on Monday and tossed the receipts for these monitors cause I have had them over a year.

    What's wrong with it?. Discoloration to the right of the screen? If so, this used to happen when there was a magnet on or near the monitor. At least with the old time monitors.

      Looks like LED bleed. If that is indeed an LED monitor I'd say it's done for.

          Before giving it up for dead, check the on board menus to see if it has a degauss feature. If so, try it. It might clean it up.

            An LED monitor will not have a degauss feature. Shit degaussing is so old spell check has an issue with the word.

                I read the thread title and expected to see a screen with a bullet hole or two through it.
                Sorry I got nothing for you. I'm pretty far from a computer guy.

                  Toss it. Monitors are dirt cheap these days.

                    Yep...as stated above, degaussing is looong gone, along with the cathode ray tube, which used magnetics to deflect the beam of the electron gun located in the neck of the tube. Your issue is most likely caused by capacitors going weak/dry over time, become less effective on its circuits. Unless it is a really hi-end monitor, it will NOT be cost effective to have repaired. Unfortunately, we have become a disposable society, which is the primary reason that I got out of the electronics repair business in 2000. I really miss my job at the bench doing component level repair work, but I couldn't survive on the salary afforded any longer. on new monitor purchases, I would recommend Samsung.

                      It's an edge-lit LED which is why the problem is to one of the edges of the screen (yeah I know... Duh). It's old tech.

                      Try to find HP 25bw monitors. They are frequently on sale at Best Buy and they are gorgeous and reliable. I use them for graphics work.

                          Monitors are so low cost , time to toss and get new larger one.

                              That's the really sad part, and one of the reasons I like Samsung(besides being one of the two largest flat panel manufacturers). I would rather support South Korea, only if not able to support the U.S.
