A thin vertical line(Green) has appeared on the screen

Hi peterbb24 - Welcome to FixYa!

It seems like you're annoyed by this vertical line running across your screen. At first, it may seem nothing and wont bother you much but as an expert (and based in my own experience), I have to give my fair recommendation to test your screen while in BIOS mode and see if the problem continues.

How to go to BIOS?
1. Turn OFF your computer
2. Turn it back on and hit "DEL" key repeatedly until you see a screen like below :


Stay on this screen for several minutes (1 hour recommended) and see if you'll still see that annoying line. If the problem continues, then it's high time to send this monitor to the authorized repair center to get it fixed. Otherwise, the problem could be software-related which requires you to backup important files and re-install your operating system. Please refer to your system's user manual for the appropriate guide in doing operating system re install.

Thank you for using FixYa.

A vertical line has appeared just off of the center of the screen. I have unplugged turned off reset and changed the background but the line stayed.

The vertical lines means you have failing T-CON board, part of the LCD panel assembly, it will get worst, new LCD panel will be needed. Westinghouse uses cheaply made screen like CheiMai, not LG/Philips.

A dark blue ink splodge has appeared on my screen! It started at the very top of the computer and has run down the screen. can this be fixed?

Usually we can see these type of spots, if we place any magnetic field next to a CRT monitor. Try removing if any speakers or its power adapters or any radiating devices near to the monitor. It will get ok after a while.
If still the problem persists contact a service center.
Please come back and rate my solution if this turns helpful for you or also if you need more clarification. Thnx

Colored vertical lines on monitor

Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

Vertical red line on HP w2207 monitor

Please try to connect the monitor to another PC, if problem still exist then probably there's an internal problem in the circuit board of your monitor wherein an elecronic part/s might be cold soldered / defective. I recommend to bring the monitor to an authorized HP service center to fix the problem. If the monitor display is good if connected to other PC, then your previous PC should be checked if the VGA card (if there is any) is properly placed to its slot & working properly as well as it cables & connections. regards

AOC spectrum 7 Glr ?


Initially, I would suggest that you do a full reset, that is unplug the monitor from the mains and the PC for a couple of hours (preferably overnight). The idea is that the monitor will reset itself to default factory settings. Thereafter try again.

Should problem persist, pls post back.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Screen goes black with bright white horizontal line

This problem of loss of vertical deflection with the line offset from center suggests a cold solder connection in the vertical sweep circuit or in the power supply to the vertical sweep circuit. Most service shops should be able to fix.
