TFT monitor shading

  e scout 16:36 31 Mar 2005

I am on my 4th iiyama 431 monitor all display shading darker at top than bottom.
iam wondering if this is a feature of tft screens as back light seems to be driven from bottom.
i can measure difference its about 10 lux
Shows up clearly on desk top display
They sent me a 434 by mistake but that was much better

I have no problem with my Iiyama Prolite E380S, even brighnes all over the screen.

On my Iiyama E435S, there is a button marked Auto/Exit on the front.

If you have this button, then do the following:-

(a) Make sure you are on the correct resolution of
1280 X 1024.

(b) Give the screen 30 minutes to warm up.

(c) Press the Auto/Exit button, this will refresh the screen.

Tied all that and checked again no change

If the Monitor is less than 3 years old, then you are covered on the warranty.

Suggest you contact Vicky on 0870-224-9595 or email... [email protected]

They are very helpful and will send a courier with a replacement.
