Question about Dell UltraSharp E248WFP 24" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Verticle lines/streaks down screen

I have multiple verticle lines/streaks down the monitor's LCD screen. These lines don't appear when another monitor is attached so it's not the video card. I also tried hooking the monitor up to a different computer and same problem with both VGA and DVI hookup. I tried looking at all the capacitors but I couldn't visibly see any that looked like they were bulging or leaking. The lines don't move and seem to be of multiple colors. I can't see them along white or black background colors. How do I go about fixing this?? Thanks for any suggestions!

The Display panel could be bad/damaged or the main board that controls every thing could be bad---parts for Dell equipment are known to be hard and sometimes impossible to find.

SOURCE: Colored vertical lines on monitor

Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

SOURCE: Dell 2005FPW displays streaking vertical lines

The only way to repair this would be to have the LCD screen replaced in the monitor and more than likely you can buy a replacement monitor that is bigger for less than the cost of the LCD repair.

I have a Dell computer with a flat screen now all of a sudden there are fine pink verticle lines along the right side of the screen. There is also a group of fine pink verticle lines about 1.5 inches wide...


Try the following steps:
  1. On the monitor, press Menu, and select Factory Reset.
  2. If the monitor has more than one type of connection available such as VGA, DVI, or HDMI, try a different type of connection.
  3. Connect the monitor to another computer. If the line appears when the monitor is connected to the second computer, the monitor might be damaged or defective.Otherwise, the video card and driver is causing the problem from the computer.let me know if this resolves ur issue.. if not then we need some other steps.. regards,guru

Blue verticle line is displayin


The blue line is most likely the result of your monitor's screen going bad. One thing you can try is disconnecting and re-connecting your video cables to make sure it's tight and has a good connection. This probably won't help, but it's worth a try. You may also want to connect the monitor to another computer to see if the blue line stays, or goes. If the blue line stays with another computer connected, the problem is inside the monitor. If the line goes away, you should replace/repair your computer's video card and/or cable. Otherwise, you need to replace/repair your LG monitor.

What can cause a single red line to appear on my laptop LCD screen? It's a small/fine red line appear horizontally (left to right) It's NOT radio interference,back light,broken ribbon cable,or connector...


Thats a generic problem with LCD screens. Its more common in Mobile screens. Sorry, no there is no fix to it other than replacing the LCD itself. Just pray that it shall not grow because as and when the compressed gas from within the LCD will leak the line will be becoming broader and broader. It is caused by damage to the LCD corner Just a hit on side of LCD and a hairline crack for giving way to the encapsulated gas.

Verticle line down the middle of lcd monitor.


This is a common problem with LCD screens. It is pixel line damage and the screen is permanently damaged and is not repairable. It will probably get worse. The only answer is to replace it
