Colored-Vertical lines! My computer was mfg. in 2005, so the monitor is prob. just too old, and needs replaced completely....but would love to find a quick, easy, fix!! I have an FPD1960 TFT LCD Color Monitor (19" Flat Panel--Model 900G). When turned on screen completely full of colored/ vertical lines (which DO NOT go away)! Some are thin and some are thick, and it kinda looks like a colored UPC code! Is it a lost cause or can this problem be fixed?? Thanks, 'Becca

    I think I have a similar problem in my Toshiba Tecra M2 14" TFT monitor. Two black vertical lines (see the attached/inserted photo).

    It started a year ago, so I started connecting the labtop VGA output to an external monitor without any problem. But it would be nice to find a quick affordable fix. Please don't tell me a new monitor is needed, as this could cost over $150 or more!!!

    Can you post a screen shot ?



    A television repair technician needs to see the screen for themselves in order to help correctly.

SOURCE: Gateway FPD1960 19" CD has a red tint to all oc screen when I turn it on.

Make sure your VGA cable is seated properly. If it is seated OK, it could be the start of a problem with a backlight. When a backlight goes bad, it typically shows up as pink/red color where white should be displayed.

SOURCE: Gateway fpd1960 tft lcd monitor has blotchy color lines across screen.

You likely have a bad 'controller' board, the one that converts the analog monitor signal into Row and Column addresses to tell the screen which pixels to light up, and which color. You may have a loose connection where ribbon cables connect to the board or the LCD panel, but you'd have to take it apart to see.
Likely the monitor part would be prohibitively expensive when you add in labor costs. If I owned it, I'd take it apart a bit and check for loose things...

Hi

i recommend the following

1) if your monitor has a 3 pin kettle type lead, please replace and see if this sorts the issue, if it is hardwired then unfortunatley your monitor is faulty and will need to be replaced/repaired

Please leave feedback/vote if this has been useful

Colored vertical lines on my monitor


Depending on the age of the monitor, it most likely will be Capacitors that are leaking. I have repaired many different brands of monitors and have seen problems very similar to yours. 99% of the repairs I do are capacitor Issues. It's well worth replacing them IF the screen is still in very good shape as far as brightness and contrast. most repair kits usually cost between 12 and 20 dollars.
Hope this helps!

Computor keeps trying to restart,monitor only shows vertical lines,first black and white then colored lines,


Probably the problem is not with the monitor. Your computer is defective and probably the lines appear because your VGA is defective.
To make sure your monitor is OK, you can connect it to another computer.
First check replacing the RAMs and then VGA.

Monitor will not display desktop, however, it does display have multi-colored vertical lines throughout.


You have eliminated the CPU/Video card as a problem so you should try changing the video cable.
There is a good chance that the cable is bad if the multi-colored lines you are describing is the "test pattern". So swap out the cable and see if that fixes it. If that doesn't fix the problem and the monitor won't work with another CPU, it looks like you are going to need a new monitor.

Colored vertical lines on monitor


Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

Vertical white line near the left end of the screen.


Usually when there are colored lines on the LCD its because the screen is going bad. Quick way to verify this, try a different monitor on your computer and if the line goes away then you know for sure the monitor is bad.

If you try a different monitor and the line remains then you know that the video card is bad.

Magenta vertical stripe sets plus grid dots problem


Try using a diffrent computer on this and see if its not the video card doing it or if not its the controller board inside that connect to the video card that would need to be replaced at this time, if there are no dead or stuck pixels it might be worth replacing rather then buying a new one.

CRT Monitor Displays only a thin bright horizontal line


Vertical IC loose connection. Best is to reflux it or resolder. It is in internal circuitry inside the monitor commonly an upside single line IC.

And its a minor repair only. But I recommend it to be serviced by a qualified technician. Inside it are plenty of nasty voltages. It might caught you.
