    S230HL acer monitor. using VGA (lcd with led technology or sumthin)

    I bought it, i came home, plugged in power adapter, there was this pink hue and waves going down in the right side https://streamable.com/oh3u7 (its almost unnoticiable in white, very noticable in black and dark colors)

    https://ibb.co/1XKZ6yt - picture of problem

    Few days later, i contacted seller, checked it very carefully. got it replaced ,changed its power adapter. 3 days it worked perfectly normal. but yesterday exactly same problem with pink hue came back randomly when i was watching a video. (i though i was having a bad dream about the old monitor with problems)

    If i look closely the pixels seem to be displaying correct color but the pixels are surrounded by pink lines, and the affected area i can see waves going down.https://gyazo.com/de005239105d7e92034dd831bb93c61d

    The rest of the screen got a bit blurry when something is moving on screen.

    I've made a post like this before but this is the most detailed one, so i hope someone can give me an idea on what the problem could be caused by. I wanna try everything that could fix the issue

    What i've tried:

    Tried a different VGA cable

    Unplugging VGA cable, then holding power button to reset monitor.

    Applying some pressure

    Connecting power thingy to the wall

    Thinkering a lot with the video cable

    So VGA can't be a problem because the problem is still there without connection, or is it possible for bad/old vga cable to permanantly cause monitor defect?

    even though its not cable problem could getting DVI to VGA cable magically fix it?

    im feel really anxious and hopeless over the last few days idk what to do exactly

    would getting dvi magically fix my monitor?

    If the same problem occurs when connected to two or more computers, it would lead me to believe the monitor is the problem.

    probably, but what monitor problem happens twice exactly the same way without any cause? if it is a monitor problem, could 3rd party places fix it somehow? does something get loose and this problem could happen?

    Don't know. Defective design maybe?

    Opening it up to attempt a repair would probably void the warranty.

    If it was me I'd simply return it. (And then get a different brand).

    Probably cost way more than it's worth but yes, I'm sure there must be someone out there with the equipment, knowledge and experience to diagnose and repair the problem for you.

    You are going to find it next to impossible to find someone to repair monitors. I know, I tried several years ago. Monitors are considered throwaway items because the time spent to open it up, troubleshoot it and replace something would far exceed the cost of a new monitor. Companies (both large and small computer repair places), don't want to waste man power on monitors.
    I finally ended up e-cycling the Samsung monitor which I liked but needed a resistor or capacitor.
