Recently, I began working at a small graphics design firm, where I was unluckily given an old 19 or 20 inch monitor (SuperScan Mc 801 RasterOps) which is clearly ailing. It works OK, but for as a graphic designer, it isn't acceptable screen quality.
The problem is that there are horizontal lines radiating from the sides of the monitor into the center. They are stronger at the edges and they are slightly warped, like wrapping around the curvature of the monitor (which has a greater surface curve than newer flat panel CRTs). The lines are pretty faint, but they are disturbing.
No amount of screen control adjustments made a difference.
Before convincing my boss to spring on a brand new graphics- quality monitor, I want to be sure if it is worth fixing or not.
It's definitely out of warranty.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
