I am having some trouble with my new 271HU. Sometimes when it comes back from sleep/standby there is a line exactly down the middle of the screen where the left side of the screen seems to have had its display shifted right a few mm but the right side is still where its meant to be. The bit that has been shifted right then appears over on the far left as if it has overlapped and re-appeared starting from the left.
It doesnt do this all the time, I have gone a whole day or two without seeing it, then sometimes it might do it twice in one day. If I turn the monitor off and on again then it is all ok again. I have never seen anything like this before. Any ideas? Is it somehow faulty or can it be fixed? I had anoither XB271HU and it never did this. I have seen at least one other user in another forum with the exact same issue except his overlap appears on the right edge instead of the left.
You can see in the images below, the diagonal lines in the picture should be straight but have been chopped off exactly in the middle of the monitor by this odd overlap, and the chopped bit appears in the far left of the screen!
