Re: problem

This indicates that your vertical sweep has failed and the auto protection circuit is shutting down the video so you do not permanently burn that line you see into the phosphor coating of the CRT.
At any rate, the vertical sweep circuits need repair before the unit will work again.
Good luck.

Fading colour

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

When watching movies on my computer, I am getting a weird line through the middle of the screen at times, also, when things are moving on screen faster, more lines seem to show. I guess they don't really...

i think your vertical IC ( if vertical lines are shown) / horizontal IC ( if horizontal lines are shown) of your monitor has damaged. you may contact a mechanic and change the corresponding IC

Screen trys to show desktop, but quickly fades to


Since the power led button is on, the problem with your monitor is the that the picture board of your monitor has develop fault, that is why it tries to show your desktop and quickly fades away.

The picture board of your monitor is bad and will need to be replaced in other for it to display.

The best thing for you to do is to take your monitor to a local repairer or any service center within your vicinity to help with the replacement of your picture board because the fault is not something you can fix on your own in other not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Monitor on a emachine 250 computer comes on picture is very light faded in the background but no light

This is a typical symptom of a failing LCD screen inverter board or LCD screen backlight lamp. The backlight lamp failure symptoms are very similar to the inverter board failure symptoms. If you have to guess which one is causing the problem, try replacing the inverter board first. LCD screen inverter boards fail more often than the LCD screen backlight lamps.

My EV 700 screen picture is condenced has one bright clear line in middle screen and two more lines faded,space in between lines

Sounds like a CRT problem but to be sure, hook up another monitor to the computer and if you get the same exact lines then you know its a problem with the video card, if the lines go away then you know its a problem with the monitor.

Monitor goes black with a white horizontal line across the middle of the screen

Check to see that the monitor cable is correctly installed. Also, make sure you have the most up-to-date drivers installed for your graphics adaptor card(both ATI and Nvidia carry catch-all driver programs to keep you up to date.) Tighten the cable screws of course, to make sure the monitor cable isnt just wiggling in its seating.
