Verticle lines on monitor

My monitor has four verticle lines running through the length of the screen. It appears as if the entire line is missing the image information. The spacing of the lines is irregular. Does anyone know how to correct this annoying problem?

Unplug the monitor video cable from the computer. Power on the monitor and see if you get the same results. If so then your monitor is defective.

I have a Dell computer with a flat screen now all of a sudden there are fine pink verticle lines along the right side of the screen. There is also a group of fine pink verticle lines about 1.5 inches wide...


Try the following steps:
  1. On the monitor, press Menu, and select Factory Reset.
  2. If the monitor has more than one type of connection available such as VGA, DVI, or HDMI, try a different type of connection.
  3. Connect the monitor to another computer. If the line appears when the monitor is connected to the second computer, the monitor might be damaged or defective.Otherwise, the video card and driver is causing the problem from the computer.let me know if this resolves ur issue.. if not then we need some other steps.. regards,guru

There is a thin white verticle line on the monitor.


Open this link and make it full-screen. Watch the screen for 20 seconds or so to see if the line of lit (white) pixels remain.

If this line remains during this, and even when the the computer is first starting up, it is most likely a row of "lit" pixels caused by a faulty connection or circuit inside the display.

While you can sometimes rub the area of the screen near a single lit pixel, an entire line of them usually denotes a more complex problem that can only be fixed by having parts replaced by a technician

Note: Be sure all of your cable connections are securely fitted, and that the line is there no matter what is displayed on the display (especially at the boot screen before Windows loads).

What can cause a single red line to appear on my laptop LCD screen? It's a small/fine red line appear horizontally (left to right) It's NOT radio interference,back light,broken ribbon cable,or connector...


Thats a generic problem with LCD screens. Its more common in Mobile screens. Sorry, no there is no fix to it other than replacing the LCD itself. Just pray that it shall not grow because as and when the compressed gas from within the LCD will leak the line will be becoming broader and broader. It is caused by damage to the LCD corner Just a hit on side of LCD and a hairline crack for giving way to the encapsulated gas.

I will assume the line goes from top to bottom and is straight.
If so bad news I am affraid. It is the driver tabs that go from the panel to the physical panel controller board and is not making correct contact.
This will normally continue to get worse until you lose entire bands of the screen.

Sorry for the nad news.
