Default LCD panel starting to degrade

I have a Samsung Syncmaster 206BW, which I got when I built my PC around... 2006 I think it would have been?

Lately, I've noticed the LCD screen is getting worse at being seen from glancing angles, and up to 2 weeks ago I didn't notice a change, but I was standing up looking down at it, and I'm sure prior to this, I could still see colours perfectly fine.

Even straight on, I'm getting weird issues now with brightness, where stuff sometimes appears washed out

Is this normal for an aging LCD monitor?

I have no other issues. No pixels are dead or anything. Its strange. I just don't remember it being like this before...


It does have a TN panel which is the worst apparently for viewing angles, and maybe it was there all along, but its a tad bit weird it hasn't hit me as much as this before.

Can they degrade?

Abit IP35 Pro / Q6600 G0 / Zalman 9700 / 8800GTS 640mb / 4x 2GB Corsair XMS / X-FI Xtreme M / 1x 1TB / Antec 900 / Logitech Z-5500 / Samsung 20inch

I don't know, I had a Samsung Syncmaster for a few years as well and I never noticed anything like that happening. Maybe yours is starting to go bad.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
