Question about Brother P-Touch 85 Thermal Label Printer

Open Question

When I power on my P-touch PT85, the display shows an assortmant of figures, horizontal and vertical lines and I cannot get rid of it. It doesn't respond to any other key inputs. The batteries are good, I removed and tested them twice to try and reset the device, made sure they're installed correctly. It powers itself off after about five seconds. Also, I always store it without batteries installed to prevent leakage in between uses.

My Dell XPS 9530 has a white vertical line on the display


Fixing this old of a TV would be a waste of money as unless you have the testing gear and expertise you would be guessing. Just buy new and be happy. You could also join a book club and give up watching TV altogether. LOL

If Your screen shows a: white vertical line on a black screen or, a white horizontal line on a black screen:
Your TV vertical or, horizontal power transistor or, chip is getting too hot.
A vertical line indicates the horizontal circuit is at fault, a horizontal line indicates the vertical circuit is at fault.
To troubleshoot: Turn on your TV untill the line shows then: after about a minute, remove power (unplug) the TV, remove the TV back cover, carefully using your finger find the too hot transistor or, chip; or, use component coolant; spray the too hot component with a component cooler repower the TV, until the screen comes back to normal. To fix: apply white sylicone coolant cream to the back of the too hot transistor or, chip. or, if there is room, a small fan can be wired in to cool the part. Radioshack sells the cream and, also a "component cooler spray" that should find and, fix this problem, also; with power removed you can, if you feel it is safe; carefully (with only one hand) feel the part; it will be very hot! (it could burn your finger!) Do not touch anything else! (this will not hurt the tv; when the picture comes back on (the offending part has cooled) you have found the problem part.

How do i get rid of the horizontal and vertical lines on a sony prs 600? the unit was never dropped or mishandled. they actaull appeared as i was reading my book on it


Hi mdill9759,

Looks like a problem with the screen itself. Try this to see fi you can get issue resolved, good luck:

1. Hit the "Reset" button at the bottom of the reader
2. Slide the power switch, at this point the screen should blink and show "Opening book"
3. Allow the reader to load and see if the lines still appear on the screen

If the lines are still on the screen, contact Sony to get it repaired.

Horizontal white lines across top problems of my television.


This is probably bad/leaky capacitors in the vertical circuit, around the vertical IC, or the power supply that feeds the vertical. Sometimes you can see domed/ bulged caps or what looks like liquid on the circuit board around the leaky ones. The legs on some caps can even corrode to the point the leg is missing. Care must be taken when replacing them because the acid from the caps can eat away foil traces on the circuit board. All acid must be cleaned off board to prevent further corrosion of parts

Screen only showing single line of video in center.


hi there, is the single line horizontally or vertically? if horizontal line, you do have a vertical section problem, check some parts at vertical section, the vertical ic, the power source of vertical section ie diode & resistors. ty

Screen not displaying whole letters because of horizontal and vertical lines


I've had the same problem. A temporary fix that I have found is to turn up the contrast all the way (press [2nd] then hold down the up arrow) until the screen becomes mostly black. Then turn the contrast back down (press [2nd] then hold down the down arrow) until it is at a normal level. If you can get rid of all the white lines when you turn up the contrast the screen will be back to normal. Unfortunately this does not permanently fix the problem because I cannot get rid of all the lines and it seems to be getting progressively worse each time it start up the calculator.
