Around 3 months ago I started noticing these weird black-faded lines that appear in the left side of my monitor. I'm 100% sure the issue is on my monitor because when i take a screen capture while the lines are displayed, I get no lines in the capture. They are like evolved dead pixels haha.

When I turn off and turn on the monitor, the lines are gone, but I was curious about what kind of problem does my monitor has. Take a look at the pic I took of the issue:


Have you experienced something similar? I'd like to know if the problem is bound to be solved or if its just a monitor defect.

More info: LCD tv, LG model M2262D 22" connected to the pc through HDMI cable.

What sort of monitor is it? CRT or LCD? Also, what kind of cable connects it to your computer? – cpast Jan 3 '13 at 1:50
@cpast It's an LCD. It's connected to the PC via HDMI cable. – Wedding Nails Jan 3 '13 at 1:52

This is a hardware fault. You should have contacted the manufacturer as soon as you noticed it- once it's out of warranty you'll be stuck with it.
