Blotchy Monitor: LG Studioworks 700s

I just returned this and got another one, which unfortunately displays exactly the same flaw: the background is all faintly blotchy in purple and green. I do serious graphics so this is not at all kosher.

What does this mean? Can I fix it? (I doubt it).

Thanks guys and girls,

Have you tried moving the monitor to another location to see if it exhibits the same problem?

I still think this is a magnetic field problem.
It sounds like you may have something which is producing a magnetic field near your monitor, probably speakers. Make sure that there are no magnetic sources near the monitor.
Also power lines can produce a magnetic field.
If the monitor has a degauss function try that.

yeah, sounds very much like a magnetic field.  I echo lidsky's sentiment.

Anything else? I've actually tried those things. Is it possible it is just because it's new and it will 'wear off'?

Some monitors are more sensitive than others, perhaps? As the one I had before never had that issue. Probably it is magnetic. Points soon.
