So I bought this monitor maybe a year and a half ago, and now for whatever reason the picture looks like I have the brightness cranked up about 40 more than necessary. Right now with brightness set to 0 everything is washed out and the black appears very green looking (obviously). Has anyone had this problem or know whether there are any adjustments I can make under the monitor casing to correct this?

OT: Are you Silencer000 from Lineage2 ?

- After monitor warmup ( 20-30 mins ) go in OSD to Color menu - there you should find option called 'Color return' or 'Image restoration' that should help a bit.

The same thing happened to my G500 gradually over the course of many years. I guess they just are past their lifespan. I've had smaller sony trinitron monitors (15 and 17 inch) that are much older than my 21" and they are still going strong and look great. It's just a fault with the 21" tubes I believe. I don't think the 19" ones die that rapidly either.
