Thin blue line

There is a thin blue line approx 6 ins from right of screen, have emailed hp, they told me to try various things which didn't work and they are basically not interested Yup I have a permanent vertical blue line an inch in from the left side on my hp pavilion dv8000 notebook monitor... and today I saw the beginning of a second blue line forming... is there a fix for this or is this a widespread hp problem?

This is a phisical hardware problem with the screen.
If the system is under warranty better take back so your vendor replace the screen.

I think is the only solution.

This is a progressive problem, day a day you will be seen more and more lines until the screen become death.

Yes, it's a screen problem. It could be a loose connection of the LCD and the motherboard or the lid lights gone bad. You can fix that by either resetting the connection of the screen and the motherboard or replacing the whole screen. You would need a technician to do that.

Dell inspiron e1505 laptop has a thin light green line on far left of screen and a thin pink line approx an inch to the right of it. Both lines run from top to the bottom of the screen. I'm assisting in...

If you were to plug it into an external display, that will tell you whether it is a VGA uProcessor fault or a screen fault. If it is a screen fault, checkout ebay for a replacement screen.
Hope that helps.

HI there,

I'm a pro laptop repair/rebuild tech. I do not believe the numbers lock and screen are related excepting that the screen plugin on the board affected a curcuit when the screen failed, which is exactly what your problem is. I would replace the screen and the inverter (directly under the screen behind the bezel at bottom) and you should be good to go.

Best Regards,

Thin blue line on my screen

Put a hand on each side of the screen and torque the screen in opposite directions so you give it a slight twist. Does the line disappear or get worse? If it does, then the cable is not seating well in the back of the panel. Now that maybe a bad cable or a bad socket. If the line stays regardless and doesn't change, then most likely the panel is failing. Vertical lines on a panel are usually indicative of a failing panel.

Blue line down right hand side of screen

If you are confident enough to open screen bezel and take out screen , then the second strap from right of your screen has a bad connection. theses cannot be repaired but as a tempory measure some duct tape across the connections will cure it, else replace the screen.

Try using an external monitor,every laptop has a blue VGA connector,just connect a monitor there and check is those lines
disappear,if it does,probably you have a problem with the internal connection of your monitor to the motherboard.
