Hello,

I have a LG Flatron w2452T that has this strange issue. Frequently on about a 1/4th of the screen there is this snowy effect. This only happens on the bottom of the screen. If I touch it - it fixes it. It seems to happen more and more often. I read on youtube that sometimes these monitors have a overheating issue and people have fixed some issues with replacing some capacitors. I think they have a different issue though with screen not working at all.

How do I troubleshoot this issue? Have you seen such a problem and fixed it? If so - how did you do it?

Thanks for reading and I look forward to your answers.

Hi codingideas

A problem with a screen itself is no easy task to try and repair yourself.
Best suggestion is to ask a TV repair centre for the price on a service, this would also include cleaning any dust out that may be causing static or generating additional heat.

One quick check that you can do is to make sure that your PC to screen cable is secure (finger tighten only).

You could try another monitor. That way if the problem goes away you know it is the monitor.
Other wise it would be in the computer whether it is a video card or driver.

But since you touch it and it goes away seems to indicate its the monitor.
