    Sounds like aperture grill misalignment, This can and does happen often in shipping (and should be mentioned in the manual).

    This sounds kind of severe but usually a sharp smack on the side of the casing will re align the grill.

    So other than the lines does this one look ok?

    Sounds like one of the problems mentioned in the trouble shooting section of my monitors manual. This is what it said:


    Thin vertical black lines on one or both sides of the screen.
    This minor condition is caused by grille element overlap which can occur during shipping.
    Position an open white window over the affected area of the screen and maxmise the brightness and contrast controls. This will cause localized heating of the overlap which will clear in a few minutes. Be sure to readjust the brightness and contrast controls back to the normal viewing levels after this procedure.
    One of the monitors I had suffered this problem along with 3 huge scratches down the screen after been damaged in shipping. The convergence was also off on that screen. I tried to fix the vertical lines by placing a white box over the affected area. Got bored after 20mins and they were still visible. I didn't care anyway as it was going back due to the scratches.

    One smack later and the lines have disappeared!!

    Thanks BR

    The monitor is nice but not perfect... and after replacing the original three times I don't have much faith in their quality control althiugh I must comend the support staff for the qucik turn around of replacements. I actually got to know the delivery guy by name!

    As long as this one keeps going i'll be satisified but never impressed
