On my HP vs15 monitor there is a thin black line running approximately two thirds of the way across the screen. Rebooting does not make it go away.

My plasma has a thin black horizontal line approximately 4inches from the top and extend across the screen.

You can either have a bad Y-Upper buffer board, or dirty contacts on the plug associated with the horizontal line. Best to have a service company look at it.

Thin line across computer screen

This might be a mediaplayer issue. Google on EHtray.exe and you will find a microsoft page with a number of filenames related to these kind of problems. Check by pressing CNRL-ALT-DEL and check if you see any of the filenames on the processes tab. Than stop the file and see if the black line disappears.

Black line running horizontally across TV screen

A line on an LCD, either horizontal or vertical usually means the video driver board is defective or the screen is defective, does it show up as black even on a dark screen? That means a line of LCD "shutter"s is not working and there is a problem that cant be fixed by a reboot or channel change. Bummer.

Horizontal lines on Screen

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!
