W3706 Diagonal Smudge

  • Hi

    I have a Dell W3706 37" LCD TV that I have had for over 3 years now.  It is the UK version with the inherent DTT lock up but that doesnt worry me since I dont use the internal tuner.

    Last few weeks I have noticed what I could only call a 'smudge' top right corner leading diagonaly towards the centre of the screen about 3 inches long.  It is not on the front of the panel (have cleaned this with no results) and looks like it is 'behind' the front of the screen.  It shows on any light programs as a dark line.

    What could this be and how could I resolve it? - The TV is well out of warranty and I dont really want to replace it at the moment.

    Thanks in advance!

    Dave
