A dark large stripe on the screen which won't go away

A vertical dark stripe, which takes up exactly one fifth of the screen (it is the second fifth from the left). It is not completely dark, but just darker than the rest of the screen. 1. Can it be fixed? 2. If it is not fixed - is this a sign that the screen is about to completely be out of oreder soon? Thanks a lot, Moti

    Thanks Bluenadas.
    I am a little dissapointed to realize that I will have to replace the screen. It is, however, not your fault that I was kinda hoping for a magic solution here...

    Thanks again

It is definitely a screen related issue. There are 5 drivers each running a section of the screen. Obviously one is out, but that doesn't mean the others are on the way. You may be able to find a replacement screen if you'd like to attempt the replacement yourself. Otherwise you always have the option of using a service center.

My gameboy's screen has dark stripes in it fixable or should i get a second hand/refurbished one?

It sound like the color or the screen parts inside of the game boy color are not working properly so it would just be easier to buy a new one vs fixing the current one. The current one could be fixed but it might not be an easy fix and the fix might be complicated then.

I have a viewsonic pj500 projector which has functioned perfectly for 5 years. Now the area around the image area either shows a dark blue with dark stripes and the image area has a yellow cast which seems...

LCD projector 101, your blue device is dying inside of projector. Consider purchasing a dlp based product, they do not suffer from color decay.

Really you are blessed , most lcds last about 3-4000 hours or 4 lamp changes. good luck

Dark Vertical Stripe on Right Edge of Screen

I experienced the same approx. 1/2" vertical stripe on a Viewsonic vx1945 and ATI Radeon x1050 video adapter on Vista Business SP1, but the stripe appeared along the left edge of the screen, instead of right edge. I then temporarily decreased the monitor resolution, and the stripe went away. I then increased the monitor resolution back to its original setting, and the stripe did not re-appear. So, that was the 'fix' in my situation, hope this helps.
