Horizontal lines, flickering monitors and other display problems are typically related to outdated device drivers, malfunctioning hardware and device-to-system incompatibilities.
Video adapters for gaming are among the most common afflicted with the horizontal line sickness.
Although most monitors are cured eventually, the task of diagnosing one requires time to assess. Follow a few steps to start the process and cross off the items on the list of "most likely possible causes" line by line.
The probability is good that you'll find the right remedy without any vertical line side effects.

1. Access "Control Panel" from the Start menu and then select "Appearance and Themes."
2. Choose "Display" and then go to the Settings tab.

3. Click "Troubleshoot" and follow the prompts to resolve the issue.
If the problem is still not resolved, proceed to Step 4.

4. Go back to the "Control Panel" and select "Performance and Maintenance" and then "System."
5. Go to the Hardware tab and click "Device Manager."
6. Click "Display Adapters" under the console tree and select your active monitor.
7. Go to the General tab of the malfunctioning hardware and select the "Driver" tab.
Click "Update Driver."
Follow the prompts to update the driver to the latest one available.
If the issue is not resolved, proceed to Step 8.

Follow Step 7, except click "Rollback Driver" after selecting the "General" tab. (Note: You may have to roll back the driver a couple of times to reverse Step 5.)
If the issue is not resolved, proceed to Step 9.

Access the Windows Catalog and download a compatible driver.

Yellow line down my screen


From my experience, lines either vertical or horizontal in whatever color is an indicator of a failing screen or a bad cable...either the cable is going bad or there is a poor connection on one or more of the pins that either connects to the back of the LCD or the motherboard.

There is a thin yellow horizontal line on my right display


This is definitely a hardware problem. Either your AGP/video card is not functioning properly. But the more likely problem is that your monitor color blending function in that particular line is not working.

You need to get the monitor check by an expert technician. Don't take chances.

Lines in monitor


Yes. If you're a techie, you'll need to replace the "Horizontal IC" some circuitry may be corrupted. Otherwise, my answer would be none, there's no way you can get rid of the 5 horizontal lines on the monitor.

Try degaussing the monitor.

Monitor problem


Hi,

Appreciate the "Ask Me".

I am assuming that you have more than just familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, the use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Further, that you have access to a service manual.

Width problem is basically insufficient horizontal deflection, then analysis would have to be in the horizontal section. Areas to initially focus on:
  1. 12V line and pin 29 of IC401;
  2. 110 V peak to peak at collector of Q403, if yes check Q 402 & 404 as well as T401;
  3. other components that affect the horizontal size are:
  • IC201
  • Q 405, 406, 407 & 408;
  • D409
  • L401
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Thin yellow line on the right of the LCD Screen


all those sounding intelligent and saying that replacing lcd hardware will fix the problem probably didnt have the problem themseleves . i had exactly same problem with samsung syncmaster 2043swx monitor . i just restarted and booted into safe mode ( by pressing F8 key at startup ) tried changing reolution in display settings . rebooted in normal mode and asll lines are gone and never appear again . i am uisng windows Vista . so i think it is probably a driver glitch something .

A very thin vertical brun line in the middle


If it's a straight vertical or horizontal line always in the same place it's a panel issue which the average user even with repairing skills will not be able to reliably repair ,Sorry.

How to fix horisontal lines on display ( see the picture)? They stronger when system is restarted and then fading but never disappearing. They always stay the same.


horizontal lines can be caused by either a faulty grapchics card or a faulty monitor. try adjusting the screen refresh rate. if you are using a windows xp system goto

start>control panel>display>settings>advanced>monitor

then adjust the screen refresh rate and see if the horizontal lines disappear. if not, then you probably have a faulty graphics card or monitor.

Horizontal lines are appearing and moving acrosss the screen of my View Sonic E50C Monitor...


What is wrong with your monitor is that the Horizontal section is going faulty, the lines you are seeing are the Horizontal Retrace lines, usually invisable in a working unit. It is often a faulty capacitor(s) OR a Diode breaking down.. in the area of the Flyback Transformer. Probably time for a new one unless ya can fix it yaself.
