My monitor has a darkened area that I can't seem to fix. I tried restarting the monitor, unplugging from PC and for DP, Tried unplugging the power to the monitor, resetting all the settings. Nothing I have tried has worked. I tried to restart my PC and it occasionally has the Dark area shown in the picture as the bright area and the rest of the screen dark, almost as if I was shining a flashlight from that point into a dark cave. Any advice would be appreciated.

I have an issue that is the exact same as
As far as I can tell, there seems to be a quite annoying deadzone line on my monitor. On boot, there is NO ISSUE, fractions of a second later though, and it occurs. If computer not on, only the deadzone is lit. If computer is on, deadzone is dim. Attached are images of the self-diagnosis screen. Firmware updates, driver updates, cable changes seem to do nothing about it. If this is a known issue, please give solutions, if not, what is the return policy on these monitors? I got this one about a year and a half ago.
Y'know, that's a real shame, because it wasn't exactly a cheap monitor.
That's a about what I was figuring though. Was hoping there was a chance as there is no visual indicator on boot, but honestly the problem is probably not one I can easily fix anyway. Maybe if it was some kind of loose connection, but I doubt it, and a quick look earlier suggested it wasn't an easy monitor to open up.
The mod caught that before I did, thanks for the heads up though. I was thinking it would be helpful in case there was some kind of batch issue, but the odds of that a ridiculously slim. Though issues with this specific monitor seem to be quite common.
I figured I was probably out of warranty, as I couldn't find the paperwork after looking yesterday, so it didn't even come across my mind to keep it private. Bit of a slip up.
