Alright, well, I have a fairly new Samsung SyncMaster 910mp flatscreen LCD TV/Monitor.
Thats the one.
I love it, its very high tech, it replaced my 1982 Spectracon (What the hell is spectracon? long gone brand) TV, so Its a huge improvment for me.
The only thing I use it for is to watch movies and play my Playstation 2 on. Ive been playing a bit more PS2 than usual. (I usually dont play at all! I work on geetar chops, but Ive been feelin lazy lately)
But. . .Ive noticed. . . Ive been getting some annoying, painful eye strain. I dont know why, Im sitting 2-3 feet away, and it IS a computer monitor. . .so its not like your supposed to sit far away. I used to sit alot closer to my Spectracon (because the screen was tiny)
I've had to wear sunglasses when driving to avoid pain to my eyes from the glare of the road for the past 2-3 days. I dont know why, but my monitor seems to be irritating my eyes.
I can sit on my computer (Winbook Laptop) for hours and not feel any strain. But . .after my pain had subsided pretty good, I went and played Playstation again. . .my eyes started hurting again after about 15 minutes, so I've pinpointed the problem as being the monitor.
What can I do? I want to use my TV and play my games and such. I remember hearing something about a refresh rate, but I thought that applied only to cathode-ray-tube monitors.
Thanks for any input, I'm stumped by this.
