You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts calledcapacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you aregood at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htmYou can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the badparts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor shouldwork fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct +and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the newone the same way. You may be able to get the repalcement capacitors atyour local Radio Shack, if not there are several sites and the internetyou can order from. If you don't want to try the repair yourself weoffer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if soplease rate my solution.

Emerson EWF2004 has a horizontal line in the middle of screen some color can be seen the rest is black. I disconnected cable, unplugged tv line remains how can I fix it?


This sounds like an analog TV. If so, the vertical oscillator or vertical drive output needs to be fixed. You will need a schematic to do the job.

Tv screen is black except for 1 horizontal line of color


The line is there because the vertical deflection unit - the one that spreads that line across the entire screen to form the image - has failed. Replacing it is a job for a professional, or at least an experienced amateur, and the parts will be quite difficult to find for such an old tv .

A thin white line running horizontally in the middle of my screen. the rest is black.


The vertical sweep driver has failed. Get an estimate at a repair shop to see if it is economically feasible to repair.

Line across middle of screen, rest of screen black


The problelm is a defective vertical deflection system. Could be the amplifier, vertical output driver or whole printed board that supports the vertical deflection activity. It is considered to be a serious failure.
The cost of repair will be around $200 to $300.

Screen is black except for thin line in middle of screen


The problem is in the vertical section of the main board. Bad capacitors and maybe the vertical IC. If you are not inclined to be a tech you will have to take it to a shop.. I don't know what they may charge but I normally get $69- $89
