Problem with Dell Monitor

Hi. I'm having a problem with my monitor and I hope you can help.

I have a Dell monitor, to be exact, this one:

The power went out for a second, and after that, I started seeing like these horizontal bars moving from the bottom to the top of the screen, where the screen gets a little bit darker. It's kind of like what you would sometimes see on older TVs when it got a bad signal.

To go through the obvious answers:

I connected another monitor to this computer and that monitor didn't have the problem.

I tried switching the cord, and that didn't fix it.

I've tried shutting down and unplugging everything for a bit.

I tried both outputs on the video card, they both had the same problem.

This monitor doesn't have a DVI input, it only has an analog input.

I'm not sure what else I could try at this point. So I came here! :)

  1. That sounds like a back light problem. Your bulbs at the bottom may need to be replaced. Check with Dell Tech Support. They have always been good to answer my questions.
