I was watching scrubs when all of a sudden a little rectangular mark came on the bottom of my monitor. Its on the monitor, not from the computer. I couldn't get a picture of it but I depicted what it looks like in photoshop.


Does anyone know what this is and how I can fix it? Do I have to send in for a new monitor? Luckily, I do have a warranty.

Heres a link to the monitor: http://www.samsung.com/Products/Monitor/LCD_Digital/LS20HAWCBQXAA.asp

A REAL pic would help... Take a snapshot with the Macro setting enabled.
Don't know what you're talking about, sorry. What should I do?

Anyways, the real picture wouldn't look any different than that. its a rectange (inside the rectangle is fine), with an orange glow around it.

I'm guessing it's some dead pixels. Shit happens, just RMA it. I'm sure Samsung has some dead pixel coverage policy.

EDIT>>>That's a damn fine monitor by the way. ;)

Oh, it came on! I thought I read it crawled up! No, that's a series of dead pixels. RMA.

K thanks =D

Edit: I had the monitor off since last night (I used an old one), and the dead pixels are gone. I have a 3 year warranty so I'll just let it be unless it happens again.
