dell 2408wfp verticle red line

i suddenly get a verticle red line on right side of monitor, and then dissappears after the monitor warms up....i know others have had this problem , have seen it on the net.

would this monitor be under warranty?????.....i hate this, since its been such a great monitor, and sort of doubt there is even a monitor dell sells today as good as this one......

not sure what to do .???

manufactured in november , 2008

Hi ronss,

It seems to some issue with the monitor. Here are few steps which we can try:

* Reset the monitor to Factory Settings
* Perform Auto Adjust via On screen display(OSD)
* Adjust Phase and Pixel Clock controls via OSD
* Perform monitor self-test feature check and determine if these lines are also in self-test mode
* Check for bent or broken pins in the video cable connector
* Also please check for an alternate good known monitor to isolate if the issue is with the monitor or the system
* Link

Please let me know your findings.

would the u2410 have the lovely images as the 2408wfp? i have looked at many monitors, and the 2408 is just great to look at....

HI ronss,

U2410 monitor's maximum resolution is the same as 2408wfp however, since it is an ultrasharp monitor it would give crystal clear and brighter picture.
