HP LP2475w 24-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor Generates Too Much Heat

I don't know what's up with these HP LP2475w flat-screen displays. They seems to generate so much heat that I feel them burning me when I'm sitting in front of them. I just got two of them recently. And after a few hours of working with them, I have then sensation that my face is cooked. If you put your hands up to the front of the display, you can really feel heat radiate out from the screens. I'm wondering if this kind of radiation would cause pre-mature aging of the skins. Is anyone else having this problem?

Yes, I've noticed the same issue. I also have two LP2475w monitors and it does radiate an almost uncomfortable amount of heat. I suspect my face will fall off by next year or I'll grow a third eye.

This is an old thread that I forgot to update. I found the problem is because the brightness of the display is too high. After adjusting the brightness to lower levels, the screen no longer caused burning sensation on my face and eyes. So my advice is to make brightness/contrast adjustments on any new monitors you use. If the monitor is making you uncomfortable, adjust the settings lower and see if it solves the problem.
