Generally, what you describe is a failure of the LCD screen.

Things you can try:

1. Reseat the LCD video connection to the video card.
2. Connect an external monitor see if the issue occurs externally (If so the video card is failing)

If video works normally externally, then LCD replacement is warranted

If the system is in warranty, contact technical support from the manufacturer.

Suddenly a very thin vertical yellow/white line appearing on my HP desktop monitor? pls help


Does it appear THE MOMENT you turn the unit on?

If it does, then you will have to run the monitor's self-test function by turning it on with the data cable (the one that does NOT connect to the power outlet) DISCONNECTED from the computer.

If the line still appears, then the monitor is faulty & cannot be "repaired". Usually, the entire LCD module is replaced.

If the line does not appear in the self-test mode, then check if it's connected to an ON-BOARD display adapter (typically found in the back of the machine, towards the middle area, towards where the ethernet cable and USB devices plug in) or a EXPANSION CARD (normally located towards the BOTTOM part in the back of the machine).

If it plugs in to the on-board slot, then the motherboard may be faulty. If it plugs in to an expansion card, then it's the card that may need to be replaced.

Of course, these are merely possibilities, but the most likely failing component here is the monitor itself. Busted display adapters very rarely, if at all, manifest these horizontal or vertical lines and STILL boot up. Regardless if it's on-board or expansion card, a failing display adapter would normally have either no display at all, or it would just simply stop booting up (screen remains dark: no lines).

Lines of colors cover half of the screen vertical lines


Try messing around with the VGA cable to see if it may be loose or broken You could also try changing the resolution, refresh rate or any related video setting. If the lines remain the same, chances are your Video Card is about to die... But you could always try unplugging and replugging it onto your mainboard.

Vertical lines appearing acros the bottom half of my 60' LCD LG...the TV also cuts off when it wrms up. Help


This sounds like a faulty component. The fact that it cuts out when warming up indicates a component is overheating inside the TV, such as a microprocessor or capacitor. Have a TV repair shop take a look at it, or contact where you bought it from if still under warranty.

Hi,

Sounds like a vertical problem if the center line is left to right. Chances are that it's the Vertical IC. If giving the TV a light tap at the sides causes a momentary opening, then it is a cold solder condition on the same IC.

Both of course would require opening the TV and performing the necessary repair. You should be familiar with components and electronic circuitry as well as soldering.  Should you be not that comfortable, perhaps your best bet is to seek the services of a qualified TV technician.

Good luck and kind regards.
