    Same problem with my 46" ( HL-S4676S ). I have read elsewhere it may be the DMD board? Wish I had a solution for this. Look forward to hearing if anyone can solve this. BTW don't think I'll be buying anymore Samsung products.

    Similar problem but I have white vertical lines running across the screen. See pic. I hate this television. over the few years I've gone through 1 total replacement (after 3 months under warranty), 3 lamps, one new motherboard thing. And now this. Hoping I don't just have to throw it out.

Thin red vertical line in center of my monitor AOC D2367PH

This is a clear example of a T-Con failure. Since the T-Con provides pixel clusters in lines and rows a failure would be in groups of lines and rows.

Your question is an example of an early failure; which over time will degrade to more lines & rows. I would advise replacing the T-Con board. You can do this by searching the web for your make, model and part number of the T-Con in your monitor; or if you are not technically inclined and do not want to open up the unit bring it to a TV repair technician.

My plasma tv has a vertical line across it

That is a screen defect - either a power or address line has gone out. If your set is still under warranty, exchange it ASAP. If your warranty is expired, a good repair shop may be able to fix it- be sure to get an estimate first.

This problem is only repairable if it is a wire bond outside of the screen, and I am sorry to say that chances are much higher of it being inside the screen itself, and that is not repairable.

A plasma screen is made of two glass panels with a thin gap between them, under vacuum and then backfilled with a very small amount of a rare gas mixture. The inside faces of the glass panels are silkscreened using a conductive paste, with thousands of horizontal lines on one plate and thousands of vertical lines on the other plate. The lines can be thought of as very thin, flat wires. They are addressed in a manner that where they cross one another, a plasma "pixel" is created. When a row goes out, none of the pixels in that row will work, causing a dark line. What often happens is one of these lines will crack near the seal in the panel, and then that row is lost forever.

Thin vertical yellow line and a white vertical line appeared on ibm thinkcenter r52

What is happening to your laptop is the power line connecting a row of pixels is failing so only partial colors are showing up causing the vertical lines. Usually screen replacement is the only answer to fix it. You can usually find replacement LCD on Ebay.

If your printouts contain misaligned vertical lines, you may need to align the print head. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX3200 is turned on and not printing, and the Error light is off. Load plain, letter-size paper in the sheet feeder. Press a Menu button until you see Head Alignment, then press the Color Copy button to print an alignment page. On the test page, select the pattern with the two vertical lines most precisely printed on top of each other. You may need to use a magnifying glass or loupe. maint.6.7.1.jpg Select one pattern each for rows 1, 2, and 3. (In this example, pattern 8 is the best in each row.) Press the + or - button to select the number of the best pattern for the first row, then press the Color Copy button. Repeat this step for the second and third rows. Note: If you select a pattern other than 8 in any row, that pattern becomes pattern #8 the next time you align the print head. When you’re finished, press the Stop button.

I did some reading on this. They said its caused by a faulty DMD board. I understand it's costly... around $700 to replace. Still looking for a cheaper avenue...
