    I have a fine grey vertical line running c]down the middle of the screen most visible with light background.  I was told this is a driver problem or ribbon connection issue, worst case its the panel.  Tv is a 42" Westinghouse 1080p


    have had it about just over a year and out of warranty.

    fine grey line running down the middle or toshiba regza 42 1080p. tv about 18 months old -

  • Anonymous May 06, 2009

    I have a 46" and a thick line appeared on the left "just outside the 4:3" zone, about 3 months after I bought the TV. Now there are 2 other fine lines on the TV. I emailed Toshiba and the just told me to unplug it for 3 minutes or so. If it continued to get it serviced. The problem is I waited until it was out of warrenty to get upset about it.

I had the same problem with my Lnt4071f. I called tech support and they said it was a faulty panel and the entire set had to be replaced. If you have your warrantly still use it, if not you may just be able to replace the panel, but its expensive.

It's a symptom of what everyone refers to as vertical banding. Have you tried a light grey screen to check for banding? It may be that there is a brightness difference between two bands that causes the line to appear darker. You may also find that there is more banding in other areas of the screen than you have realized.

but there's no simple solution; though some claim that unplugging everything from the tv and unplugging the tv power for 24hrs will help. I think that's a crock, but you can try it.

do you have a warranty?

I have also experienced the same problem on two occasions, but my Sony TV KDLV3000 has actually been backwards and forwards on three occasions to be repaired. I have had a new control unit and will be having a second screen replacement shortlymad.gif. I have contacted my local Sony Centre and they have stated that they will only replace the TV if there are THREE IDENTICAL faultsfacepalm.gif.

COME ON SONY CENTRE GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER AND TAKE A NOTE FROM JOHN LEWIS THERE CUSTOMER CARE IS SECOND TO NONE.

Not sure I'll buy a Sony again after this experience having been a loyal Sony customer for a number of years, will probably look at a Samsung or LG next time.

Very crisp vertical grey line appears (glass clean)


I have the exact same problem. It was there since I first bought the MFC-7840W.
Vertical line appears in scans using the automatic document feeder (ADF).
Vertical line does not appear when scanning single page (placing it directly on the glass -- i.e. not using the ADF).

Cleaning the glass strip for the ADF (or the white pressure bar overhead) does not solve the problem.
The problem does not occur with copies using the ADF (using the COPY button which is basically a scan and print). This would suggest that dust and dirt is not to blame because that would also appear on the copies.
But since I believe a copy is basically a scan plus print, they should be using the same electronics -- a hardware problem on the scan would likely appear on a copy also -- there is some difference between how they accomplish this.
It's definitely not a software issue since it occurs on all versions of Windows and Mac OS X (and multiple computers). It also does not matter whether I "push" the scan to the computer by using the scan button on the MFC... or "pull" the scan from the MFC using the Brother Control Center software.

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.
