Most likely if the line appear in all screens you have a hardware issue. Reseat the monitor connection, see if anything changes. If not, try monitor on another system or another monitor on this system, see if the problem follows the monitor or the system.

If the issue stays with the system, then you will likely need a new video card. If you have Intel Integrated video, try different RAM. If RAM makes no difference, a motherboard or an expansion video card will be needed to resolve.

The camera screen whether in stand by mode or record mode has vertical bars and dots all over the screen. The dots and bars constantly flashes and the vedio recorded sample also bear the same disturba


I hate to say this, but you better look out or a new camera.
If it is a new camera, with warranty, just bring it back, but I think repairing this one will cost much more than it is worth.

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

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.

Verticle lines


I am woundering if the repair folks did the proper job and used the right IC's as alot of NON authorized shops will use the cheap aftermarket repalcement ICs and not even use any new heat sink compound. 4 repairs in 5 years is very excessive! I would not have called the same shop(s) to do the repairs. Put on the test scren on the TV set and see if the convergence is off. If it is make the shop replace them again for free or ask for your money back. Man what a rippoff that is. Good Luck and keep us informed of your progress with the shop and the repair.
