    Samsung monitor with dead line of pixels

    I'm looking at purchasing 2 Samsung CFG7 monitors and two have come up on facebook. Both have the same problem of a dead line of pixels, one horizontal and one vertical.
    Has anyone tried to fix anything like this before? Wondered if they are worth a low offer or are they scrap?

    Good luck fixing that. I had a monitor with a dead line - and I learned that no one can fix that.

    Yeah - that would be my main course of action if I were to take a punt on them. RMA to manufacturer and see if they'll swap out for new ones.

    It's a massive punt though, and a route that I would have thought they would have already taken.

    Same seller, Looks like they refurb stuff but they have the boxes for them. They are less than 6 months old so not sure how this can happen and why didnt they send them back to Samsung to fix?

    If it was one or two pixels, then a fix might be worth a shot.

    As it's an entire line, I'd say your chances of success are very small, as that sounds line something more fundamentally wrong with the panel. The fact it's on two of them would also make me question whether there was any physical damage to the screen/panel which would cause that to happen..

    It just seems strange that a whole line can go, from side to side and also top to bottom (on different screens)
    They are up for 199 each (350 new) but in that condition they are worth more like 50 each

    Worth a punt if you can get them cheap. You could try some of those pixel fix videos that flick between colours for a set amount of time to try and force the pixel to wake up.
