Question about HP Compaq 1501 15" LCD Monitor

Compaq 1501 LCD Display

Hi there,
My 1501 display is showing a single constant yellow vertical line top to bottom right in the middle of my display. I presume this is a hardware fault and cannot be fixed ... any ideas ?
The display is out of warranty, so is there any chance I may be able to change a chip if you know where to look, or is it due for the skip ?
Cheers ... Martin ( Brighton, East Sussex, UK )

Re: Compaq 1501 LCD Display


You are correct in that it is a problem with your LCD panel. Unfortunately, there are no chips to change, short of replacing the entire LCD. You can obtain a replacement screen from a vendor such as but they usually run upwards of $300 U.S. If that's a sum you're willing to pay, give them a look. You can replace the screen yourself, or send them the laptop and they will replace it.

A single line indicates a failure in one of the hundreds of connections on the back of the LED display panel. It normally cannot be repaired, but can be replaced. It may be more cost-effective to replace the unit.

I have a thin yellow line running from top to bottom about 10 inches from the left side, what's wrong?

This can be due to faulty LCD driver IC which creates a noise bar and is shown. Check the cords to the display and also the ground connection to the display. If this is good then the IC can be faulty.

Corrupted display on LCD monitor.

Those lines on the right side show sign of damaged T-CON board, part of the LCD panel assembly, nothing you can do but getting the new LCD panel. The bright section on the screen looks like the backlight lamp reflector got out off the guide channel.
Sorry for bad news.

Monitor: Compaq TFT5015 Displays vertical lines

Check that the signal cable from the computer is firmly connected and that there are no bent pins in either end. If the trouble continues, the problem is in the monitor itself. Given the low replacement cost, it's uneconomical to try repairing these.

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 .

There is 2 strong and 1 light Vertical lines in the middle of the LCD displayed in my monitor

If the lines run from the top to the bottom of the screen and are perfectly straight then your panel is dying and not worth the effort to repair.
Having said that, you maybe lucky enough to find another monitor cheaply and just swap the panels.

Hope it helps =)
