    Above mentioned monitor gives a nasty shock when the screen is
    touched... is this normal or do i have here defective goods?

    By shock do you mean you feel quite a bit of pain/numbness in hand or just a
    tingling sensation on fingers.

    If just tingling this is normal and you get it from a lot of monitors/tvs

    If you feel numbness then you should have it repaired.


  3. On a standard type of CRT monitor or TV set, it is normal to have some
    static on the screen. It may give a strong static type of shock,
    depending on the humidity in the room.

    If you are touching any metal parts of the cabinet, or bezel, and you
    get a static shock, this can be normal if it is not an AC mains or
    direct shock from the power supply.

    I have cleaned the front screen with a dampened paper towel on sets
    while they are running. I sometimes received very strong static shock
    that I really feel. This is normal.
