Hi la321,

Please let us know model number for the Monitor. Also ensure that video cables are properly connected with the system. Kindly remove them and connect them back again to check the issue.

If possible then kindly connect this monitor to a different system to isolate the issue. Please check if the fading appears in self test as well:

Running Monitor Self Test

Power off both the computer and the monitor.
Disconnect the video cable from the back of the monitor if possible. Otherwise disconnect from the computer or video adapter.
Reseat the power cord to the monitor, ensuring it is plugged into a known-good outlet.
Power on the monitor.
The monitor Self Test will move around. If the monitor Self Test moves, allow it to move to the affected areas of the monitor to check if fading is still over there.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

Hi la321,

It might not be clear in self test regarding the same. Please let me know which system and video card is the system connected with. Are you able to update the video drivers on the system and check if it helps in resolving this issue.

Kindly update your system specs here by following this.

Also, can we connect this monitor to a different system to isolate the issue. Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

Is this happening in specific programs or in all programs?

Hi la321,

Thanks for your reply. Apparently I don't see any fades in the picture posted by you. As if the fade is happening due to the Monitor then it might not be visible in the screenshot.

How much intermittent it is on the system. If it happens like once in a day then best would be to check this monitor on a different system to isolate the cause of this issue.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

I can't see any problems either. It would help if, when this problem reoccurs, to take a picture of the monitor using a digital camera because if the problem is to do with the monitor then this is the only way of showing it (note that the Snipping Tool will not show any problems that are monitor-based).


Confirmation of the problem can be made if you post 2 images, one with a digital camera and the other with the Snipping Tool.
