Sudden extreme ghosting on the right side of my LCD

Hey everybody,

My LCD monitor (Hanns-G HZ281H, 1980x1200) seems to have decided to suddenly die, and I don’t know what to do about it. The extreme left side of the monitor is working normally, but there is a “burn-in”/ghosting that gets progressively worse on the right side, with several seconds of lag on the extreme right side. For example, when scrolling a webpage vertically: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSEzUxFDA7o

It seems to be hardware and the monitor itself, because the monitor OSD (contrast, DVI/VGA/HDMI selection, etc.) is affected by the problem too (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-TklaKmmEE)

It happened suddenly while I was using it. One second it worked normally, the next the problem appeared. I had never heard about a fault like this. If anything, I saw people who had shattered the LCD panel and it was still working (kind of). Anyone know what I could do?

  1. Screens are fragile so the best choice is to send it back to the company and you'll get a new one. If it's out of the warranty, you should get a new one. Screens die with age.

  2. The monitor is quite recent (September 2011) and carry a "3-Year Limited Warranty (3-Year Parts/Labor, 1-Year LCD/Backlight)". I have opened a support ticket with the manufacturer to see if it's covered.

    This is personal but i think a monitor should last between 1-2 years if it's lcd and 2-3 years if it's led because the colour change, brightness become crappier ... Screen quality goes down quickly.

    Haha, well I use them until they fail. My parents are still using my old old LCD that just won't die (no brand, 15 or 17" in this weird 1280x1024 aspect ratio), but my expensive and difficult to find 16:10 display fails after less than a year and a half. There's no justice :(
