Horizontal Bright White Line in Middle of Screen.... and thats it.

Here's what happened. I had just finished installing my webcam. I go downstairs for 3 or 4 minutes and I come back up. I see the screen is blacked out, because that is what my screen saver is. I move the mouse to close the screensaver, and I see this thin white line appear and slowly get brighter and brighter until I almost have to close my eyes. It's directly in the middle, and stretches from one side to the other, with approximately 10 pixels left on each side, of which is a less bright white line.

I have tried to bring the OSD menu up from the monitor and I can see the area where the menu usually comes up dim slightly. I have tried different outputs, so it is a monitor problem. I really hope that the monitor isn't screwed. Thanks in advance for those that are saying - DUH-ThisIs... and then nicely telling me.

    About 2 days after I posted this, I went upstairs and moved my mouse, and the picture was actually back! I haven't turned it off since, I'm scared that it will mess up again. Btw - the screen image wasn't compressed - just replaced with pure white light.

I am having a similar issue with my NEC multisync FP912SB monitor. In my case the problem is intermittent, the line remains at the same level of brightness, and the osd, when activated, is compressed in that horizontal line as well. The problem is occurring more and more frequently. Banging on the sides of the monitor sometimes brings the picture back temporarily. I came across this. http://en.allexperts.com/q/Monitor-Problems-2115/Thin-horizontal-line-monitor.htm

It states that the problem is called vertical collapse and is caused by the failure of a couple of I.C.s in the monitor.

Hope that helps.

My moniter screen go's dark with a bright horizontal white line in center ..it flickers


the driver board is bad in the monitor. Has it been in a place that is super hot like in a car? If the verticle driver chip disconnects from the matrix driver array, it will all squish into a single line in the middle of the screen like you are describing.. might try opening and blowing where the driver board connects to the LCD matrix (bunch of connectors on a plastic flat cable/bus connecting to the end of the LCD panel.. heating them could allow them to reconnect.. Its worth a try, right? It has worked for me about 60% time.

Toshiba 32A14 horizontal line


This symptom is characterized by a thin horizontal line in the middle of the screen. This symptom is caused by the absence of the deflection sawtooth current in the horizontal deflection coil.
The trouble is easily isolated by a continuity test and by checking the most likely defective components such as A)open vertical linearity compensation transformer, B) open capacitor and C) open horizontal deflection coil.
Be sure to decrease the brightness first before trouble-shooting if the line is very bright,as it burn the phosphor screen..

Hope this may help;

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.
