What can I do about noise coming from my LCD monitor?

I tried putting Ferrite's in line with the monitor cable's, and nothing. What to do?

Changing the refresh rate worked for me on my LCD monitor. On my old CRT monitor I lined the case with aluminum foil. One or both might help. Good luck.

What brand and model do you have? We really need a
monitor catagory on eHam to keep track of onerus monitors!

Are you using a extension vga cable by any chance?

I bought two used Trinitron monitors in the last week
and I had to buy two VGA extension cables.It turned out that the VGA cable was not sheilded and I had hash all over the HF bands..I replaced them with a pair of high quality name brand cables and now no hash at all from these two 19 inch monitors. I use a dual video card in my PC under XP pro..

try wrapping aluminum foil covering the VGA cable
and put snap-on chokes at the monitor and PC end.
Also do the same to the AC cord.

If this does not work,maybe you can return the monitor and get a Samsung (reputed not to have this problem) instead..
