    A friend gave me a used KDS Xtreme FLAT 17"CRT about 10 months ago. I was grateful to get it & surprised how well it looked. Anyways just yesterday I noticed like 2 or 3 very very fines grey horizontal lines across the middle of the screen. I pressed the degauss button no improvement. Then to get a better look at them I took a dusting cloth to my screen. The lines disappeared! Then today after my monitor was on a couple hours the lines were back. So heck I thought just use the dusting cloth again. It worked again, the lines are gone. What's going on here with my monitor? Thanks.

    They never disappeared.

    You have an Aperture Grill Monitor and nothing is wrong with it.

    The 2 fine horizontal lines are wires held under tension to hold the grill to the inside of the screen.

    You can best see them on a white background. Open Wordpad fullscreen and see.
