Lines on LCD monitor after touching it

by renard80 / October 20, 2006 12:14 AM PDT

Two months ago I bought a Sony LCD monitor - my first. While indicating something on the screen to my wife, I ran my finger across it several times. This left long lines which look like scratches all across the screen. They have not gone away. Is this normal, or should I return the monitor under warranty?

Don't do that. . .

As you ran your finger across the screen, did you notice the change on the screen? You probably damaged the screen. If you can convince Sony that it's a factory defect and not intentional damage, go for it.

How could I have damaged it?

Apologies for the delay in thanking you for your response - I have been away all week. I simply ran a fingertip across the screen - how could that damage the screen? I would be grateful to hear if anyone else has experienced this.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
