2 Failing 17" 240Hz panels? Both display black lines/artifacts near bottom of screen

Mnky313

I noticed a while ago (probably several month to a year by now) that my laptop display had these weird lines near the bottom but didn't think much of it because they would come and go but for the past few months they've always been there. (hasn't really bothered me as the laptop display is off to the side and I wasn't too concerned about it).

Recently my Asus XG-17 is showing the same exact lines (though sometimes even worse).

I've tried connecting the XG-17 to a different machine but the lines persist.

I'm curious if anyone has seen this type of failure or if there's some way to remedy it.

It's possible these LCD panels are the same, they are both 240hz IPS 1080p 17.3" panels but I can't imagine they all fail like this....

Edit: The lines persist at anything above 60hz it seems, tried 120, 144, and 240 and all showed the lines but setting it to 60hz causes them to disappear.

Replying to this again because guess what just happened.

ANOTHER ONE DIED, 3/3 BABY....

XG-17 that had the panel replaced now has the EXACT SAME problem and of course even though it failed <6 months ago it's now out of warranty so ASUS wants to charge me probably $300+ to fix it (can't remember exactly how much I was quoted before but I think its was ~$250 + $85 'diagnostic fee').
I can buy a replacement screen for ~$100 so I'll probably do that if it gets worse like it did before.... for now it's just 3 lines on the bottom, the replacement screen seems to be a different model (300hz vs 240hz) so maybe it'll last a bit longer...
