Hello, I have an issue with my Samsung SyncMaster 171v LCD monitor. It works perfectly, and has since I have gotten it, however, it has recently begun to turn ALL of the blacks into greens. It looks as if the entire screen is full of "dead pixels" but all the other colors show up perfectly fine. Black is still black, but it looks as if there are "vibrating" greens in between the blacks. It's an unusual problem that I thought initially was my video card. Though, now I've tried this monitor on multiple computers that all have perfectly working video cards and the problem persists on each configuration. The monitor actually started this a few months ago, however, it went away one day and so I thought nothing of it. The problem is back, now. It isn't such a big deal - everything functions correctly. It's just a slight annoyance.
Now, for some background details. I play Warcraft 3 and various other games (no FPS games) on the monitor and have heard that these types of monitors have problems handling games sometimes. I've never heard of or encountered this problem anyplace else on the 'net and that's why I have come here for assistance.
I have ruled out the entire screen being "dead" pixel-wise for a couple of reasons. (1) because dead pixels disrupt other colors, (2) the problem went away and then came back.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Samsung doesn't have a support forum and I feel that I should post this on the internet first before I call their tech support (generally it seems that tech support would not help me with such problems so I am reluctant to try).
Thanks in advanced.
