Single verticle line running through screen on lcd flat screen

Hi, we've had our LG LCD flat screen for about a year now and recently we're starting to see a perfectly straight vertical line running through the screen, when we squeeze the casing of the t.v it disappears, however, when pressure is released it returns.
It's there most days but not all the time?.
Is this repairable or is our t.v done for?
It's kind of annoying when you're watching it?
Thanks in advance

Hi Emma,

It could be a connector problem between mainboard and your display.
Often it is repairable, but if your tv is 1 year old there's still some waranty left.


Kind regards,
Gerard

Hi, I purchased the same model in November 2009. About 2 weeks ago a single horizontal line appeared. Each day another appeared until today when the video went out. Now it displays bands of vertical colored lines like a pastel colored rainbow. Did you find a solution to the problem?

Dynex LCD Tv with a single colored verticle line on the screen.


That is either going to be something simple like a connector being dirty or not seated correctly or a problem in the monitor itself.

Unplug and reconnect the cables a few times.If you are lucky this will fix it. Usually however this indicates a problem either in the video section on the monitor board or a panel edge connector problem.

Check if you have any warrenty left as this will be covered. Keep in mind that repair costs if you pay for them will be a good chunk of buying a new replacement.

Verticle line running down the screen.Thin verticle line running down the screen.


You have a defective LCD panel. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole LCD panel. It is the most expensive part in the TV (usually $500-2500) depending the make, model, and size. It is also time consuming as you need to take the whole TV apart in order to replace that part.

I have a Hitachi LCD 81cm TV that has developed a


Hello Matt,

The most likely cause is a failure of the TAB on the LCD panel inside the TV.

The only fix is too replace the LCD panel itself.

If it is under warranty then you should return it, if not, then you will have to replace the screen or live with it.

Unless you can find the screen cheaply you will find it is not cost effective to repair, just use it as a 2nd TV or a PC monitor.

Green verticle line on Maganavox flat screen tv


Most likely it's due to the LCD panel assy failure. It may cost you as much as to buy a new tv. The LCD panel is very expensive in retail market.

Philips Flat Screen Green Lines


The LCD Panel is defective. You will need to replace the LCD Panel. It will probably be cheaper to replace the monitor since the LCD Panel may exceed the monitor cost.

Single lines of single color (red,green, blue) are LCD panel failures.

1 or 2 lines of single color are LCD Panel failures.

Multple color lines could be anything so in this case you start by checking the power circuit.
