Vertical lines in screen

I have a HP zd7360 with vertical lines in the screen. I'm pretty sure It's not a cable or connection issue. Any Ideas.

    I can't make the problem any better or worse. I've had the screen completely apart and nothing look out of ordinary. flexing the screen, cables, ribbons pressing on connections, nothing does anything. The only thing that gives any indication is that when I display on another monitor the pic is fine and when I switch back to normal display there is an extra black line that fades away after a couple seconds.

55" Samsung TV vertical line

You are experiencing an issue with a ribbon cable that is connecting your boards together. Could be as simple as checking to make sure all cables are attached properly. Or could be some dirt/corrosion causing the same type of bad connection. Disconnecting each one and plugging it right back in should take care of your problem.
Make sure u unplug the T.V. first. and watch out for them capacitors that are holding some juice.

Hanns -g hu196 startup 2 green vertical lines appear.

Well it's probably a hardware issue. Most likely it's either your monitor or your GPU or the cables between the two.

You will first want to make sure your DVI video cables are properly connected. You will first want to shut down the computer and the monitor and unplug the power cords. Make sure the DVI (the cable connecting the monitor to the computer) cable is securely connected to the monitor and the computer. The thumb screws should be tight and the connectors should not move or wobble in their sockets. Make sure the cable itself doesn't have any obvious breaks or sharp kinks. If you cannot get a secure connection or if there's any damage to the cable you will want to replace it. If you happen to have another DVI cable around that you know works, you might try replacing it as well.

If this doesn't resolve the issue, the next step is to determine if it's a issue with the computers graphics processor and video memory. You can rule out the GPU by restarting the computer in safe-mode. If you're using Windows, safe-mode can be accessed by pressing the f8 key while the boot screen (the screen that has a manufacturer logo) displays before Windows loads. While if you are running Unbuntu this is done by pressing Left Shift at the boot screen. If you do not have the lines in safe mode, it is an issue with your video card and it will need to be replaced. If you still have the vertical lines while in safe-mode it may be that the monitor is broken and will need to be repaired or replaced.

I have green vertical line across my HP G60 laptop's LCD, can you solve my problem

Sadly, this can indicate either an issue with the screen, or an issue with the cable that connects the screen to the motherboard within the laptop chassis. A G60 is new enough that it may still be under warranty, and, if so, I would call HP. Otherwise, you will probably be looking at a $200+ repair. I would recommend going through HP if you choose the repair route as Best Buy will cost just as much.

Lcd screen has lines in the middle area (3" wide

Laptop screen display problems occur for many different reasons. Some issues need professional attention, but others can be repaired by the owner. A screen that displays vertical lines often means that there is a problem with the video cable connection to the LCD screen, or the cable itself. In order to repair this problem, the display screen must be disassembled. If you feel confident that this task is within your realm of expertise, follow the steps below to remove your laptop's LCD panel and fix the vertical line problem on your laptop screen.

1. Remove the rubber seals covering the screws on your screen's outer frame using a flat-head screwdriver. Remove the screws, then carefully pry the frame from the screen using your fingers. Release the plastic latches holding the framing in place, then remove.

2. Remove the screws holding the screen to the support brackets. You will see the video cable, which is attached to the back of the LCD screen. Try unplugging and reconnecting this cable, making sure that it is seated properly. If the problem was the connection, this may solve the vertical line issue.

3. Turn on the laptop. Move the video cable around a bit, without moving or touching the screen. Check the screen to see if the display image changes at all. If it does, the problem may be with the cable itself.
4. Move the laptop screen around to see if this affects the display. If so, the problem is most likely with the LCD screen itself, not the video cable. Replacing the screen will be necessary.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

Hello The tv is about 2 years old and for a few month ago a red vertical line apeard on the screen going all the way from the top to the bottum of the schreen. Sometimes I could make it disappear by...


All plasma an lcd ts have boards that control vertical and horizontal output to their respective areas. They are connected to the screen by ribbon cables. If one of these boards fails all together, has a failed chip, a bad connection, or a bad ground somewhere it will result in a black line in the area of that board. A bad ribbon cable connection on the bottom will result in a vertical black bar though the screen. Many times reseating the connection will fix it, if the ribbon cable has been nicked there could be a severed connection. They an sometimes be fixed, but it is a pain. An yes I have done it, but the bar is gone. The same will happen if the chip that outputs to that area opens. The connectors are the first place to look paying close attention to the cable, they are extremely delicate so great care must be taken if you decide to tinker with em, the usually have lift locks that release them, but it is very easy to wreck em.

Good luck.

This is either loose cable connection or faulty LCD. Try and take your screen apart. It's pretty easy normally get rid of all the screws and take plastics apart. Look for loose cable connection and resit any visible connectors. If this isn't working you more likely need new monitor. Good Luck
