If the monitor is cathode then chances are that the tube has gone, they work just like old TV's and break down eventually

    DO NOT OPEN THE MONITOR UP!!!

    The monitors capacitors carry a massive amount of electicity and some is stored in the tube, if accidently touch this the electric shock you would recieve would possible kill you, even when it is switched off!! this is not recomennded at all!

    CRT monitors are cheap as chips anyway

Try checking the monitor and monitor cord to make sure they are working properly. Try it on another computer and see if the lines are still there. If they are, then you will need a new monitor and if they are not, then you may need a new monitor port for your computer. You will need that checked by a professional to be sure. If you can, open the computer and check the connections from the monitor port to the motherboard and make sure they are ok.


To contact me, just re-post and I will try to answer any questions or comments immediatley.

    You will most likely have to get a new one. But first, try going through the menu settings using the button on the front of the monitor. If when you try to pull up the menu screen and the white lines are still there, then you will need a new monitor.

My moniter screen go's dark with a bright horizontal white line in center ..it flickers


the driver board is bad in the monitor. Has it been in a place that is super hot like in a car? If the verticle driver chip disconnects from the matrix driver array, it will all squish into a single line in the middle of the screen like you are describing.. might try opening and blowing where the driver board connects to the LCD matrix (bunch of connectors on a plastic flat cable/bus connecting to the end of the LCD panel.. heating them could allow them to reconnect.. Its worth a try, right? It has worked for me about 60% time.

I have owned an emerson tv for two years now. All of a sudden the picture has become very blurry and white. It is not the cable connection and a DVD is also white and blurry. Even the input channels are...


you must open the back cover of tv, and then things you should do is set "SCREEN" adjustment on the flyback transformer. you must turn it counterclockwise to reduce and decrease the level of screen brightness. turn screen adjustment gradually until the horizontal blanking lines disappear from the screen. and blurred images will be sharp again

It sounds to me like you're describing the re-trace of the unit. It is repairable, and more so the sooner you get it to the repair facility.
