TFT Monitor problem

I have a Sharp LL-T15AA-B monitor which has recently developed a fault.  The extreme 1/6th left hand side of the screen is fine but the remainder appears to have lost every other row of pixels, resulting in a faded look.  There are faint columns each approximately 1/6th of the total width.

The monitor has not been moved or damaged so far as I know.  I have tried it connected to thre separate PCs all running Windows XP and have the same problem on each.  When I connect a CRT monitor to it's parent PC, the display is fine.

Any takers?

The problem sounds like it is with the LCD itself, and these can't be fixed.

Sounds like there is a proble with the cable, is the cable detachable from the monitor, if so, I would change that. I once had a problem where 1 line of pixels was missing and I changed the cable (DVI). It then worked, good luck.

No,  I connected it to its parent PC and to another PCusing a different cable, still had the same problem.

get it warrantied.

If its not under warranty, then sell it as "semi working" on ebay or try to take it completely apart and then see if you can gently reseat alll the ribbon cables (especially the ones on the back of the actual lcd) and then see if that helps.

But it really doesn't sound like its a problem that can be fixed easily without taking the whole unit apart.

Thanks for trying guys.  Unfortunately, after taking the monitor in, it could not be fixed and it was easier to buy a new one.  I did manage to flog it as non working for spares so I got a bit back.

Unfortunately, the warranty had run out three months previous.
