    My LCD monitor has developed a grey, translucent, crescent shaped mark on it. It is not screen burn and it is not dirty. It is a 40 inch Samsung LCD tv that I occasionally use as an external monitor for my laptop. I have tried many other help forums and the help desk at Samsung but no one has any help for me. Occasionally somebody replies to say they have the same problem and can't get help. Anybody have any ideas?

    Do you see the same mark when using it as a TV as using it as a monitor?
    If on BOTH, I think you have an LCD that starting to head south for the winter.
    IS it still under any warranties?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    The mark is there no matter the input to the tv and unfortunately the warranty expired 2 months ago

    The news doesn't look encouraging, Brad.
    LCD screens aren't subject to screen burn as CRT types are.
    If you see the same marks when using it as a monitor AND a TV, and the laptop screen looks OK, that pretty much says it all.
