Re: LCD... Problem

I found an answer here as my lg 19" has the same problem, not having any tech knowledge I banged the monitor and it has cleared the problem for now but I think it will neeed replaced i dont think there is any other option please advise if there is!!


Iiyama Monitor Model: Vision Master 17 (8617E Chassis)
Horizontal dark line across screen shadowing text or other complex display data - giving appearance of 3D grooves or just dark lines on light background - temp fix (few minutes) by banging monitor or jiggling the video cable (thats what threw me for a while)
Removed tube base board and ran over disc capacitors and other solder joints whether they looked dry or not. No re-occurence in 2 weeks of daily use. Seems to have fixed it. (Be prepared for a lot of metalwork and screw removal when opening one of these up - I still havn't figured out how to get the PSU/main board out of one !)

Check the cable going into the back of your monitor and the cable from your monitor into your computer, one of them is most likely loose.

Pink and Green Horizontal lines across screen

Normally, horizontal lines on an LCD or LED monitor indicate a bad control board inside the monitor. However, occasionally the problem can be caused by loose or bad cable connections. The only things that you can really do is to disconnect both ends of the monitor cable and reconnect them firmly. Also, you can disconnect the monitor cable completely and just leave the power cable. With only the power cable attached, you can turn the monitor on and off. The monitor should have a "startup screen" or display a message that says something like "Video Cable Disconnected". If the green and pink lines are still present without your computer connected, then the monitor has gone bad. The good news is that Samsung SyncMaster monitors usually carry a 3 year warranty, whereas most monitors only have a 1 year warranty. You may be able to have the monitor replaced at no cost to you if it's less than 3 years old.

My lg monitors screen is one vertical line red is comes up anothers is two horizontal line starting

This is an early indicator the LCD display is going and will only get worse. The only option down the road is to replace the monitor because the cost to repair will exceed the price of a new one.

1 line going across my acer al2216w 22" widescreen lcd monitor

Is the line still there if you unplug the monitor from the PC and bring up the onscreen display or menu? If so the LCD panel is likely bad, and would be replaced if under warranty. If the line is not there you can try to replace the VGA or DVI cable that connects the LCD to the PC. You can also connect the LCD to another PC and see if the lines are still there to make sure it is not the graphics card on the PC.

I would check the cable and connector pins first. Then I would suspect there's a problem with the video signal board inside the monitor. It could be the LCD panel controls, too. That would make the unit beyond economical repair unless you got a used one.

A thin horizontal line across the screen

I know I have seen thin lines in the past on older CRT monitors, these are usually wires which support the aperture grill. LCD is just a panel so this must be something different. What color is the line? It is probably an error in the scanning process.
