I recently brought a second monitor for my workstation, i choose a second hand Samsung syncmaster 940bf to match my primary monitor.
The monitor arrived today, I cleaned the screen with standard screen cleaner before hooking it up to my pc.
After about 40 mins of use i noticed stuck pixels appearing from the bottom corner, this area of stuck pixels has now spread into a area of stuck and dead pixels.
Now i cannot explain the cause of this fault so I welcome any suggestions. I find it weird how this fault developed after 40 minutes and not immediately.
I have noticed that this second screen makes a barely audible electrical humming sound where my original does not.
Could this be a result of me cleaning the screen, I have be using the same fluid, wipe and technique on my own screens for years.
Is it more then coincidence that this second hand monitor has failed not even an hour of use after it has been sold
All suggestions appreciated,
