I bought a KDS Rad-5 about 4 or 5 months ago and I love it except for one little problem. A vertical red line appeared near the left side of the screen and will not go away. The monitor was OK when it was purchased. Changing colors/brightness/contrast/resolution does nothing. I have even tested the monitor on 2 others PCs with the same result. I have looked all over the net and found nothing about this. I would have exchanged it under warranty, but the company's support is hard to reach and I would like to know if I could fix this myself.

Thanks for any help.

Seems to me as if the pixel processor (sorry if that's not the correct term....) may be defective, or u have a very odd occurence of dead pixels, ie it slipped out during manufacture. Try to get a replcaement....if not, let it be known KDS has shitt service.

sounds like an entire row of dead pixels. I don't know if thats even possible, but my friends LCD has one dead pixel and its red, so it seems possible you have an entire line.
Deffinitly get another.

Sounds like you have a real problem. Don't wait, call support now.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice; In practice, there is.
