Hi,

 

We have a few DELL u2312hm in our studios that have been looking "blurry" and discolored. Recently, one of them completely gave up and the screen went crazy. Here is a recording of said issue;

The monitors are out of their warranty period.

 

Is it time to put them to rest at the eco-center or do you guys suggest troubleshooting? If so, what sort of troubleshooting? We're OK with cracking 'em open and looking at the insides at this point, because the next step is throwing them out.

 

Thanks.

I'd vote for the eco-center.  Hardware today is rarely worth the time, effort, and cost to repair.  It will cost $200 to replace.

Thanks everyone.

 

RIP u2312hm

2015 - 2016

 

Shame on you, Dell. If anyone lands on this page from Google, DO NOT BUY THE u2312hm - 4 of ours monitors have been having problems recently and they're all that exact same model!

Doesn't look like it is for sale anymore. Amazon nor Dell sell it directly.

If you bought them in 2015 they may still be under warranty.  I thought I saw that they had a three year warranty.
