Are These Dead Pixels?

  powerless 08:24 26 Mar 2005

If they are, then there is lots of them.

A 300mm 'line' across the bottom of my LG TFT. Its maximum height is about 3mm and does vary across the lenght of the 'line'.

I know thre is already an 'edge' around the TFT where 'black' is present but this line goes beyond this.

A screen capture won't show it but it is 'there'. So here is a few pics of what I see...

Use the menu on the monitor to adjust the vertical this will stretch the picture, if the black mark disappears down the bottom of the screen they are not dead pixels. also try monitor on another compuer.

It stays the same when moving on the vertical and on a different computer.

Looks like a back light problem to me.

I would send those pictures off to LG and see what they have to say.

Sorry I can't be of any more help!

That don't look like dead pixels

How old is this display? If new then return to dealer

My guess would be that it could be a driver problem. Is there a new driver for the graphics card?

2 [maybe 3] years old.

Gone through two g cards with various drivers.

Still same.

I have the LG L1720B Flatron and you have me worried! No sign of a black line to date.

Hope you find the answer.

  powerless 10:23 26 Mar 2005

LG L1810B ;-))

It's also the same on the DVI and DSUB.

Definitely not pixels Powerless. I know you run your TFT at a lower resolution than native, have you tried the correct native resolution to see if it alters?

  powerless 13:06 26 Mar 2005

Ok I did just that and it's the same.
