I swear, this is the 5th Sony SDM-S71 monitor i've recieved through warranty because all the ones in the past developed this odd discoloration problem. once again, this monitor has an onset of the problem. basically, the monitors will work fine until one day all the black or dark colored images on the screen turned green then later eventually turn gray (once the problem becomes more severe). upon further scrutiny, i noticed the gray has these really thin vertical lines. i used to just increase the brightness so the black wasn't dark enough to turn green, but that doesn't help anymore. well, now the problem has escalated to the point where all the medium to dark colors on my screen have this gray, green, red, cyan "matrixy" look. the discoloration sort of flickers if the color isn't too dark or too light. as of LATELY, white colors developed these thin cyan colored lines. mind you, the lines are really really thin, so for the most part the discoloration looks somewhat solid.
i actually thought it was my video card until i realized even when my monitor wasn't plugged into the computer, it was still messed up.
i don't know what to do! i'm fed up with trading this stupid thing in for warranty purposes. this thing really works a number on my eyes too. i just want to be rid of this problem. :(
if ANYONE can help, i'd be SOO thankful. btw, i've done all the typical "troubleshooting" issues and nothing helps. this issue has nothing to do with monitor settings.
