    Grey splodges on TFT

    Hi

    I have just bought a Samsung 215TW and while in the main it's great there are two grey splodges on the screen. They are both about the size of a finger print, one is 2 inches down and 5 inches from the right of the edge of the screen and the other in roughly the same out from the bottom left of the screen.
    On a dark background you cant see them but if the background is white or any other light colour you can. They are not dead pixels but more like that grey colour you get under your finger if you touch a TFT. Is this normal and will it fade or should I send the monitor back ?

    Thanks

    Pat

    I don't know if this helps, but worth a try maybe?

    But like alsenior said above, if you can return your monitor I would take that path if I were you.
