    Recently i've noticed what is best described as a dark wavy smudge down the left side of my monitor... at first i thought it was just the monitor being in need of a clean but after a good clean the 'smudge' is still there...

    it also seems to disappear when pressing down on the panel [like when i was cleaning it] only to return after a few seconds...


    Thoughts? Is my monitor about to kick the bucket? because that's all I fecking need right now...

    I doubt it, they die when you hear a worsening squealing noise from the monitor or PSU, or there is a burning smell. My smoke detector in my room randomly went off for a couple of weeks before my monitor burnt out with a horrible acrid smell, the detector had been reacting to it way before I could smell anything.

    Pic of said smudge would help.

    I don't think we have enough information, upload a pic of the smudge
