Hello everyone , from past few days my monitor is acting up. I have Samsung SyncMaster S22B370 Monitor . It is 3 year old . Though i use my PC a LOT. I have done all kinds of troubleshooting and i am 100% sure that the problem is with monitor itself . I have also checked for bad capacitors but all caps are absolutely fine . I have also measured output from power supply which is at 14v as it should be. Monitors upon connecting to power source shows white horizontal lines at startup for few seconds and it is extremely bright even at 50 brightness level . Also there is huge lag , everything appears like fading in and fading out. Though i have checked the refresh rate is set at 60Htz and response time is set to fastest . Also after restarting i can see my fully faded desktop wallpaper slightly for 5 seconds on the screen when windows logo is loading and rest of the screen is black . Ghosting issue ? This is same with or without any source input . I have checked it without any input after that with HDMI input and at last Analog input . Could it be a LCD panel going bad ? Do i need to get a new monitor or is this one is repairable ? Thanks for any info . I really appreciate it.
