sony 21 inch trinitron monitor
my friend just gave me his 5 year old trinitron monitor. it is 21 inches, freaking big....
one thing that i noticed is that in the few minutes that i tested it, there are a few thin white lines going across the screen, and the color seems to be a bite faint.
is this normal? maybe needs some warming up?
it was also attached to my laptop if that makes a difference.
I don't know if this is what you're referring to, but all glass tube monitors have 2 horizontal lines- one at 1/3 from the top and one at 1/3 from the bottom of the screen. It's inherent in the design of CRT's and I forgot what they're for. Some manufacturers are better at hiding these lines than others. I think your monitor is just showing its age. Trinitrons are usually great quality, but you'll get the oddball one that doesn't last as long as expected
