Hi  The fluorescent light when it begins to burn out tries to draw too much power. Your inverter is sensing this 'too much' power draw and shuts down power to the back light. Replacing the backlight is the most technically difficult repair of an LCD, and most repair shops don't even offer this service. I recommend that you sell your LCD 'AS IS' on eBay or a similar website. The Power board and the Control Board are both usable parts that can be easily salvaged from most Dell Ultrasharp monitors.

    or
    Borrow a DVI cable from some friend and test it, just in case.

    If you want to use multiple monitors, ensure you are using the right settings. Go to control panel>> Display, 
    open the Display properties box, click the last tab at the top right hand corner, and chose advanced see here for XP, Vista is similar:

Vertical lines


It sounds like dead pixels in the LCD display. the only way to get rid of the lines is to replace the Display unit in the laptop. This can be a very expensive repair so I'd check it in with an IT professional first.

Upper third of Sony Reader 600 is corrupted. Black vertical lines and some missing horizontal lines which cut across words making them unreadable.


Those lines of pixels aren't commanded properly. Dismantle the unit completely and reseat the cable that goes top the screen - if that doesn't fixes it then the screen itself is damaged, it will have to be replaced.
If your reader is less than one year old take it back to the dealer - it's still under warranty and they will fix it for free.

Appear vertical lines on screen


What is happening to your laptop is the power line connecting a row of pixels is failing so only partial colors are showing up causing the vertical lines. Usually screen replacement is the only answer to fix it. You can find replacement on most LCD displays on Ebay.

Hi, i have AL1716 monitor (2 year old). Recently, there is a blue vertical line which appears on and off sometimes in the monitor. Can anyone suggest on a solution


Is the vertical line always at one location ? (on the screen)
If so, it appears that the video card/driver (on your PC or laptop) may be causing the line to appear occasionally ... i.e. flaky ... and it will likely fail (completely) in due time. To confirm it's the video card, try using another monitor (long enough) to see if it happens.
[ The line may also be caused by "dead" pixel on the screen ... but this usually happens on randomly located pixels on the screen, not on one vertical line. But, it may also be a possibility ... in which case, using a different monitor may prove it one way or the other ]

My Ibm Laptop r51 has a vertical lines on the screen


The lines appearing on your LCD means it has a defect on the screen.

There are 3 types of pixel defect
1) dead pixel - pixel is always off
2) stuck pixel - pixel is always on
3) hot pixel - pixel is on but in red, green, blue or yellow, can also be a light black color

You can try to fix stuck or hot pixels but dead is dead.
1st method, flashing different colors rapidly:
JSScreenfix.com has a great tool. This is their free java applet or you can download it below.

2nd method, applying pressure to pixel:
Damp paper towel, Small stylus or dull pencil.

3rd method, tapping the pixel:
Pen with cover on or another small, blunt object.


If your laptop is still under warranty, get it replaced. If not you are looking at the most expensive part in a laptop to get replaced. (LCD screens on laptop is roughly equivalent to 40-60% of the total laptop cost

Please rate this if it this helps.

Laptop screen issues


This is a bad pixel sensor. Your screen has hundreds of vertical and horizontal pixel sensors on the edge, if one goes out on either end it causes a dead pixel line through the screen. Unfortunately, the only way to fix it is to replace the screen. If you can live with the annoyance, I've seen screens last for years with a pixel line without any other problems.
