HP L1706 monitor


I have a thin vertical line running from top to bottom on my monitor.  It fades in and out at times and seems to flicker, but it is staying there. Appeared out of nowhere.

HP L1706 vertical lines

Check that the connection from the graphics card to the monitor is good and that the graphics card itself is in working condition by testing the computer on another monitor.

If the problem persists, the issue is with the monitor and possibly a connection to the display internally which will require a competent electrician to check out

How do i open my hpl706 monitor. i need to replace a capacitor

Reomove the base and all the screws in the back, use thin flat blade screw driver to crack open at the bottom edge of the monitor and then work your way around, you should ahve the monitor face down on a flat soft surface.
See example here:

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 .
