Re: [crt/lcd] Screen Issue

Yep - that's a defective LCD and it's NOT the backlight. If it were a backlight problem, your screen wouldn't be lit as nicely as it is..a wearing backlight puts out a pinkish hue (especially when first turned on) or you'd have a dark screen or light flickering. Drivers and cables wouldn't cause a problem like the one pictured.

However, a cracked LCD can also look like this - look carefully to see if any crack is visible (in which case it likely wouldn't be covered by warranty).

Otherwise, the panel itself is deteriorating and should be covered under warranty.
