TFT screen problem

  THOMAS 16:05 23 Aug 2003

I have a sony 15" TFT,quite often the screen goes very cloudy,sometimes it has vertical lines of various colours,it gets so bad that the desktop is impossible to make out.If i touch the edges of the frame or squeeze the frame it corrects itself.Is it possible to undo the screen and have a look inside the frame to see if it is just a poor connection inside.Thanks for any advice

I wouldn't recommend it unless you are prepared for the chance you may permanently damage it.

All monitors have a 3-year warranty these days, normally on-site direct from th manufacturer (or their agent) - Give them a call - look on the web site for how.

I would go with the warranty idea as well.

Not recommended! If I were you I'd contact Sony UK and see what they say before you start poking.
How long have you had it and where did you get it from?

The monitor is over three years old.It was bought on-line from Watford electronics i think.I just wondered if was possible to remove the corner screws and have a quick look to see if was anything obvious before i take it to a specialist.

Well, in this case I would have a peek - conscious of the fact that if I screwed it up, I'd have to get a new one anyway.

Sorry - it's unusual to see TFTs over 3 years old - hence the automatic assumption about warranty.

"Interesting DieSse are you saying that TFT monitor doesn't last more than three years i have just bought one not cheap i could have bought two CRT monitors for what i paid for the TFT"

No - I said it's unusual to see one more than three years old - they were not sold in anything like large quantities then, so most of them out there are still under warranty!
