    I have a problem with a dell trinitron monitor that i just bought
    yesterday (used, but in very good conditions). After beeing in front
    on the monitor several hours i found two very thin horizontal lines
    that just can be seeing whith a white background like wordpad, they
    look like a thin shadow, i first thought the monitor was dirty, but
    then i realized it´s the screen. Is this going to get worse?? can i
    fix it?? thanks for your time...

    These lines are completely normal for monitors using a Trinitron CRT.
    They all have them; it's a part of the design.

    These are the aperture grill support wires. This is normal on all of these
    Trinitron tubes. On a 19 inch monitor, there is normally 2 of these wires.
    They are 1/3 of the way down from the top, and 1/3 up from the bottom of the
    screen. They will not change.

    Many of the dealers who sell monitors that use this type of CRT, ask the
    customers to sign a paper that they are aware of these lines, and that they
    realize that they are normal.

    I have a Diamondtron (after-patent duplication) 22" display, pretty much the
    same as a Trinitron. I've used Trinitron and LCD displays almost exclusively
    during my use of computers. Shadow-mask displays don't have the two faint
    lines...but I consider the two lines a small price to pay for square, crisp
    pixels. No wonder the shadow-mask monitors are so cheap: to me it felt like
    I was looking at a television screen up close. I'd never waste my money on a
    shadow-mask monitor.

    I never notice the two lines until someone on the internet mentions them,
    like today....
