IBM Flat Panel Monitor problem - light colored shifting lines (like Bar Codes)

IBM 9497-DG0 18 inch monitor. Displays rapidly shifting, light-colored lines about 1inch from the bottom of the screen and continuing up for 1-3/4inches;. These look almost exactly like 'bar codes'. They flicker and shift horizontally. The screen can rotate 90 degrees. Rotating it both physically and logically causes these 'bar code' lines to move with it. The lines are very light yellow on a white screen and dark blue on a black screen background. I can clearly see the text and graphics thru them so it's more of a nuisance than anything. Any ideas? Thanks. --Dirk

It sounds like it's a problem with the video card, as opposed to a problem with the monitor. If you have another machine, or a laptop, or a friend with a laptop you can find out - just plug it into the other machine, and if the problem goes away, it's the video card. If not, it's the monitor.

While the card may be bad (if it has a dead fan, and has overheated) you will probably need to replace it. But if may just be loose, assuming it is a and on video card and not an onboard one. If it is an onboard video, you can usually disable it and put in an add on video card, which would resolve the issue as well.

I have several lines on the top of the screen


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

ViewSonic model vx922 monitor, how do I shift screen to right.


You may want to look into your video card settings about the vertical settings. Most monitors usually have just a millimeters off. I suggest to contact your computer manufacture or video card manufacture.

1 Answer

Dark Grey Vertical Bar


1. try connecting laptop to an external monitor and check if this vertical dark gray bar appears. if yes it means video is the problem. you need to boot in safe mode then uninstall the video driver. boot to notmal mode then download and install the latest video driver. if still same problem then replace video card. if video is built in with motherboard you need to replace motherboard.

2. when the vertical dark gray bar did not appear in the external monitor then it means issue is with the LCD panel. Do this turn off laptop. press and hold D key then press Power button at the same time or Press and hold on the Fn key then Power button check if the test will run. Color displays full screen when you keep pressing on N key when the colors appears check the vertical dark gray bar if still exist in the test, this means LCD panel and LCD cable needs to be replaced.
