Yesterday, I took delivery of a Sceptre 20" LCD monitor, model X20G-NAGAII, due to the unbelievable Costco offer.

It is 4:3 with 1600x1200 resolution, and doubles as a TV thanks to its s-video input ...


When using it with a computer, on a pure white background, I noticed a black hair, right in the center of the picture . It's about 4mm ...


Is there any way to get the hair out ? The hair is clearly behind the glass, not attached on the outside.


If not, I guess this one will be going back to Costco over the week-end. Is this common, or is it just my usual luck ?

Only 1 hair?! There's not much you can do... That is well below Costco's stated 8 dead-hair policy. ;)


Seriously though... I"d just take it back. Costco is very good with returns. Best of luck.

Bud-man,


Apparently my LCD wasn't made in such a clean room !


This hair looks more like a very short hair, like maybe from one of my cats. Except it shouldn't be able to enter the LCD panel, so it must have gotten in at manufacturing time.


I'll be taking the display back very soon.

I don't know, I adopted them from the pound ;) Seriously though, maybe they had some pets in their factory and didn't realize it .

Well, on the bright side you could sell the set as one-of-a-kind and rare on ebay. ;)


As for the source...I doubt very much it came from a pet or pest. Most likely from a person's eyelash, arm, or scalp.

I returned the LCD with the hair on friday. The person at the Santa Clara Costco had a good laugh when I told them what was wrong with it.


I wish they sold this unit at at the stores as I would have gotten a replacement - the picture was fine except for the hair. Instead, they gave me a cash refund since they don't process VISA at the store and that's what I used for the online order.
