45. I have noticed two thin horizontal lines on the screen of my Philips monitor. Is this normal?
This phenomenon can occur with Philips 107P, 109P and 201P monitors and is normal. Your monitor is using
an Aperture Grille, which consists of fine vertical wires to align the electron beams with the phosphors on the
screen. To prevent these vertical wires from vibrating and to keep them properly aligned with the picture tube,
two horizontal damper wires are required. These are located on one-third and on two-third from the top of the
screen. The result is that you will see two very thin horizontal lines over your screen since the two wires are
casting a slight shadow on the screen surface. You will find these wires (line) in any monitor from Philips and
other brands using the Aperture Grille technology.

onto your computer or upgrade the video cards memory. Please check with your computer or video card
manufacturer for further details.
