Vertical yellow line on screen

I have a yellow vertical line that is just now showing up (right after the 1-yr warranty of course) on the right edge of the screen about 5" in. As of right now, it seems to go away after several minutes, but it is still annoying for such a high priced item. 
It happens on all inputs.
Anything I can do before I call the service center?

    "It happens on all inputs."


    It's apparent on all sources that use 16:9. Im just wondering if there is some smoking gun as to why it's doing it. From what i'm reading, it's someting with the board.

The only thing I would do is make sure it does it on all sources so you can verify it is the TV causing the issue. It'll just save you time on the phone with the service center.

Shortly after the warranty was up the first vertical yellow line appeared and now, about 1 months later another vertical line appeared. He's not happy to hear it only gets worse and apple won't do anything...


Although its possible for graphics processor failures to cause vertical lines, they more often create horizontal ones. The first culprit to check for a vertical line problem is the LVDS cable, which it turns out is not that expensive a part (not counting all the work there is in getting to it). To verify this, I would gently flex the cable while the iMac is open and operating, and see if the lines get better or worse. It may also be that the cable itself is fine and just a few of the connector pins at either end are intermittent, in which case it just needs reseating.

Green vertical line on the right side of screen


Warranty still alive?
Hope so; the problem could be an expensive one.

The screen appearance is controlled by allowing light from a backlight through by turning pixels off and on.
This switching is done by a matrix that turns on vertical and horizontal pixels of the right shade at the right time to produce the image you see.
One of the control elements for the vertical that controls the transmission of green light from the backlight, has died (no longer switching off and on when told) and these are normally a part of the LCD screen assembly itself and not easily replaceable.

I would be talking to Sharp - this shouldn't happen in 6-7 months of use.

Vertical Yellow Line on Left Side of Picture


I would try to update the drivers for the display adapters, to do this, go to start>control panel>system>hardware(tab)>device manager>display adapters and select the appropriate adapter and double click it and go to the driver tab and update driver. If this doesn't work, go to device manager and try updating the drivers to the Monitors.....same thing.

Dark vertical lines on tv screen


If under warranty then of course use that.
This is a display problem. One solution someone knowledgeable in electronics can try.
This problem can be caused by a bad connection fitting of the flat cables on LCD controller board. Dis-connect the flat cables from the LCD controller(T-CON) and carefully reconnect them. Try the unit before reassembling the back cover. You may have to disconnect/reconnect several times to show improvements if this is the problem.

Yellow vertical bar on right edge of screen


Your set is starting to get a convergence problem and the only way to repair it is by changing the convergence IC's,(3)one for each color,the blue migh be showing more now but soon all 3 colors will be out of alignment and you will not be able to correct it with the custumer controls,is great that it has worked for so long without this problem,if you are familiar with tv service you have a place to check but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for help from a pro-servicer.Let Us know how it goes.
