Re: Vertical lines more or less... baclk is grey and...

It could be a bad connection somewhere. Try checking: -Where the video cable plugs into the PC. Remove and check for bent pins, corrosion and replace and firmly reconnect using the thumbscrews on the connector. -Where the video cable plugs into the monitor. Some LCD monitors have removable cables some don?t; if yours does follow the same procedure outlined above. -Could be a problem with an internal connection. A quick test and perhaps even fix would be to grasp the right and left sides of your display while it is on (displaying the offensive lines) and gently twist like you were wringing out a towel. Again, and I emphasize, gently using only a couple of ounces of force. Watch to see if the lines disappear, get worse of make the screen flash or change. If you do then its likely cause is the connector from the LCD panel to the electronics has oxidation or a loose connection. If you?re lucky the flexing might even fix your problem, if not you will have to take it apart to find out exactly what is going on. If that doesn?t work then the next thing to try is connecting the display on another computer to see if it also displays the same lines. If the lines are still there then the problem is in your display and depending on its value and your finances you might consider taking it to a repair shop for an estimate. If the lines are gone take it back to the original PC to see if the lines reappear. If they do then I would suspect your video card or drivers as the likely candidate.

AOC vertical white line moving across the screen

I have dual AOC i2553ph monitors. One day I came into work and notice one of them had a single vertical white line moving slowly back and forth across the screen that looked like a scan or radar function. I reset the monitor from the OSD and all is well again. Use "Extra > reset" from the OSD on AOC monitors.

Vertical lines

The monitor sounds like its going to die. The problem is because of the LCD Panel.

A monitor should have 2-3 boards, a logic board, an inverter, and a power supply
Lastly the LCD Panel which should consist of a crystal mirror, LCD Panel(has the circuitry and the brains for information/images that display), and backlights.

The LCD Panel is the problem. It needs to be replaced.
Yes it sucks, but usually LCD monitors last for so long, but in some cases they wear out by use and the thin circuitry that provides the power to create colors and images, begin to die. Im sorry. Its really the only solution unless you have the expensive equipment used to make the panels.

My recommendation is to replace it and it should work spankingly new.

I wish yuo luck. Please Rate.

Vertical lines on left half of screen

The problem is the driver tabs that go from the panel controller board to the panel itself.

This is normally a fatal failure since having it repaired is extremely expensive.

Horizontal lines are appearing and moving acrosss the screen of my View Sonic E50C Monitor...

What is wrong with your monitor is that the Horizontal section is going faulty, the lines you are seeing are the Horizontal Retrace lines, usually invisable in a working unit. It is often a faulty capacitor(s) OR a Diode breaking down.. in the area of the Flyback Transformer. Probably time for a new one unless ya can fix it yaself.

Kogi Monitor with fuzzy text

Here is one small solution. goto start: -> control panel -> display click on the "appearance" tab. then click on "effects" check the box that says: Use the following method to smooth the edges of screen fonts (and make sure to choose "cleartype") You should notice the fonts are a little sharper as well as having a backdrop.
