A pink vertical line appears suddenly on the screen

My Samsung SyncMaster 740N monitor is just a week old, and a pink vertical line appears on the screen suddenly. It disappears if I shake the screen or press the monitor edges of the monitor. It doesn't go away by restarting or turning off and turning on the computer. What could be wrong? please help.

    I have the Samsung 941BW and I have the same pink line after only two days.

    The solution (maybe the ONLY) is to exchange the monitor for a new one. That's what I did. It's mostly free if under warranty.

    I purchased a ChiMei CMV 221D 22" LCD display about 3 months ago. It worked perfectly until two weeks ago, when the infamous pink line appeared on the right side of the panel. No amount of powering off & on, playing with the buttons, or shaking worked. Then like one of you mentioned, the line would come and go intermittently - no rhyme or reason. Well, last week I found the reason, and maybe this will help one of you. My wife bought me a perpetual-motion desktop gadget featuring a chrome rod and ball sculpture that's supported on two poles over a base. Give the rod and ball a push, and it rocks back and forth forever. It can do this because there is a rather powerful electromagnet in the base, powered by a 9-volt battery. The ball contains a magnet also, and is repelled each time it passes the base, thus causing the motion. These magnets were affecting the flat panel display. Whenever I happened to push the sculpture close to the terminal, the line appeared. If I happened to move it back, the line disappeared. I finally placed it on a shelf away from the display and have not seen the line in four days. This could possibly happen with any powerful magnet placed close enough to the flat panel to interfere with the pixels. If any of you have placed any speakers near your display recently, or anything that might contain a magnet, move it further away and see if that resolves the problem.

I resolved this problem by exchanging the monitor for a new one. I guess that's the thing to do if your monitor is new and under warranty.

**** ur laptop screen.. try a ***** with usb.. it'll set its mind right

Posted on Mar 26, 2008

The only option is to exchange it for a new one if it has warranty.

Green vertical line is coming in the middle of the


monitor is probably going bad. Try hooking up a different monitor up to the computer, one that you know works properly. If the same problem exists then its the video card, if the problem goes away then its the original monitor that is bad.

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

Problem with display of Monitor


Hey Mate, its either the graphics card of the monitor. both can give you that problem, first thing i would try is open the base unit and take out the graphics card and refit it, see if it fixes your problem or test another monitor on it. Second if its the monitor your best to send it back to samsung as it they honestly aint worth fixing, will cost you probably more than the monitor is worth, we used to sell the samsung syncmaster monitors and they were nothing but hassle, its the only monitor we ever sold they we sent about 70% of them back for dead pixels, or just packing in for one reason or another. All the best John
