    Would this be a major or minor problem for a Samsung SyncMaster 151v....? :

    a thin horizontal line from full left to right at first third of the screen.

    the middle third of the screen is ghosted on top of the lower third of screen.

    controls appear to operate normally.

    thx for info, -ph

    The internal interface connection between the LCD panel to its matrix
    drivers may be having a fault, or the matrix address or signal driver itself
    may be failing. This is usually serviced by changing the panel itself, or by
    changing the drive board, if replaceable in that model. In many of these
    monitors, the drive board and panel come as one assembly.

    These monitors are generally sold with a 3 year warranty. Take it back to
    the dealer. If the warranty is expired, they will charge you to service it.
    They normally will not sell the parts to outside service people. They will
    tell you to send them the monitor, if you try to buy the parts yourself.

    If the monitor is out of warranty, my preference would be to buy a new one
    rather than spend the dollars to service the old one. With a new monitor you
    will have a full new warranty.

    Thanks for the feedback.
    I didn't know warranties lasted 3 years;
    the manuf. date given is Oct. 2002 so it
    still should apply. Unforch, I don't have
    the original warranty, but can try taking it
    to a service center in the area for an estimate, perhaps.

    BS. I have had several good experiences with Samsung - TV, LCD and more.
    On the other hand, I have a couple of Viewsonic monitors at home - they are
    all nice, but before - two years ago - I had to RMA 15" Viewsonic LCD panel
    from San Jose to LA TWICE.
