There are loosed contacts between scaler board and flex-cables, at least those where you have color lines. These cables are glued with anisotropic compound and not such easy to fix, to make it right you shall heat junctions to certain temperature and press the cable down to surface with certain pressure, which is specified for compound used in there - consider as unknown.
The easiest way to get rid of these lines is to press flex-cables with something like piece of foam rubber.
Disconnect all cables coming from the display to boards, take the chassis off, unscrew metal cover from back side of display to get access to the scaler. Now, if you can, connect display back to boards (you may need to take boards off the chassis) and turn on the monitor. This will help you to find exactly loosed spot. Gently pressing to junctions of flex-cable to scaler PCB with finger observe the behavior of color lines on the display. Then put there thin piece of foam and fix with metal cover. That will work for awhile.

LCD Dell Monitor displaying purple and green rather then picture.


sounds like your monitor is starting to go out. if there are any speakers near your monitor, it is likely magnetic interference. try moving your monitor to a different area and see if it still does this. if it does, i would replace the monitor. if it doesn't, just simply reorganize the area around your monitor and it should go away after degaussing the screen.

VERTICAL WHITE BAR ACROSS THE LCD SCREEN


Almost certainly the LCD panel has failed, and would be replaced by Dell if it is still under warranty. You can try to replace the VGA or DVI cable that connects the LCD to the PC. If the problem persists it is the LCD.

Inspiron 1150 lines on screeN problem.


Connect an external monitor to the laptop and see if it also has the vertical lines. If the external monitor looks fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is bad. If the monitor has the vertical lines displayed on it, then your graphics card or motherboard is bad.

A very thin vertical brun line in the middle


If it's a straight vertical or horizontal line always in the same place it's a panel issue which the average user even with repairing skills will not be able to reliably repair ,Sorry.
