Pink Vertical Line on HP dv6439nr

I have had a pink line running vertically down my laptop monitor approximately 1/3 of the way across the screen from the left for about 3 or 4 weeks now. It's a HP Pavilion dv6439nr that I bought on November 30, 2007 so I still have my 1-year manufacturer's warranty in effect. From what I'm reading online, is this covered under the warranty? Can it be fixed? There has been no bumping, dropping, etc.; I am extremely careful with my laptop! Any help? I would really appreciate it!! Thanks

Screen pink vertical lines


Probably the tft screen, this can be easily tested by plugging an external screen in. If they both give the same issue, you have a GPU issue.

How to remove pink line on my lenovo


Is it a pink line down the screen vertical or horizontal. Most likely it is a screen problem and you will need to replace the screen. Check the repair directory on FixYa.com for a reputable laptop service to take care of the problem if you are not comfortable replacing the screen yourself.

Pink vertical line


From what you discribe it sounds like you have a row of dead pixels.

You can use this website to test for dead pixels:

If you run the test and confirm that you have dead pixels, contact the laptop's manufacturer for support.

A pink vertical line appears suddenly on the screen


Sounds like a hardware problem. You should probably return it as soon as possible.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


I know not everyone has this ability, but if you can, go to a friend's house and hook up an external monitor to your laptop. You may need to use the function keys to switch from LCD to external, but if the lines go away on the external, you have a bad LCD. If the line shows up still on the external, then your problem is either:

a) video driver (free, easy fix)
b) bad inverter (video 'outputter') ...approximately $10-50/varies + labor costs to replace
c) bad video card/motherboard ...usually between $200-$400 + labor to replace

Hope this helps - please be sure to rate my answer :)

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


This could be a failure in several areas along the path from the video card to the monitor.

Being that there is not an issue across the entire monitor the video card should be considered a last resort check.

Usually this is caused by a loose connection between the LCD driver and the LCD panel itself. Sometimes light pressure applied near the affected line will clear it up. If that does then it is a connection between the LCD panel and the connector to the LCD driver at the panel's edge.

Not much can be done unless you have it repaired by a professional or you can take it apart yourself and apply a pad of some type inside the monitor's edge to apply the needed pressure once assembled.
