Second Part of my new Monitor is darker

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello!

Today I've bought myself a new monitor. The Philips 273E3LHSB to be specific.
I've set everything up, even installed the drivers and control software, but somehow the bottom part of the screen is darker than the rest.

You can clearly see that when you have YouTube, Google, Notepad, basically things with a white background open.

Is this backlight bleeding? What can I do to solve this issue?

I already updated my graphics drivers, reset monitor to default factory settings, tried connecting via DVI, VGA and HDMI and I also played around with the settings.

To describe the problem in other words, the top part of the screen looks warm and the bottom part cold.
(top = more yellowish), (bottom = more blueish)

Is this monitor defect? Should I return it to the store.
I'm sorry for these stupid questions, but I simply have almost no experience when it comes to monitors.

Help is appreciated! smile.gif

that sounds like a problem with the monitor

honestly at thart point I would just simply return for a new one and test it there before i left with it.

otherwise I know of no settings that would control something odd like that
