Sounds like your graphic card is bad, try first to download updated drivers from the internet and see what happens, also try to connect an external monitor and see what happens.

Replaced 3 capacitors for start up issue, now have radom with vertical lines


You will need to replace all the capacitors in the output side of the power supply. It is possible you have other bad capacitors that are not bulging at the tops. The power supply generates a voltage used by the the video processor on the main board. If this voltage is out of whack, it can affect your video. I would recommend you check all power supply voltages for accuracy and ripple.

Laptop Screen Shows vertical Red lines on Grey Color on random Spots


Check the cables. It might be overly simplistic, but if your monitor is connected via a serial cable, one of the pins might be bent or missing. This can cause slight display problems, including a vertical line. If you are using a USB, try another cable and see if the problem persists. Update your video card driver. Some discrete cards have an update feature in the properties window for the device. Right-click on your video card in the programs list, and select "Properties." The update will be a button under the "Drivers" tab if your device is so equipped. If not, visit the manufacturer's website and search for the most current driver for your model number.
Updated video drivers could solve the problem. Place a box fan directly behind your computers intake vent for extra cooling. Sometimes if there are system problems, your components can run too hot. If cooling the computer takes away the line, you know have you an overheating problem, not a monitor problem. You might try cleaning the internals with canned air. Remove the housing, and thoroughly blow any dust, hair or carpet fiber away from the fan and off the mother board. While you're there, you can check to see if there are any obvious loose connections. Connect the monitor to another computer if you have one available. This is probably the most definitive test of your monitor's health. If you have a line when the monitor is connected to a different machine, it's likely time for a new monitor. As frustrating as it sounds, taking apart one of today's monitors in an attempt to repair it is more expensive than buying a replacement. If you don't have another computer available, try shutting down the computer but leave the power on to the monitor. Using the buttons on the monitor bezel (if you have them), call up the settings. If the line appears in the menu just as it did in the video from your computer, then you definitely have a monitor problem. Replacement is probably in order

Two vertical black lines on the screen of my ps50b430


Unless someone played with the TV and disconnected the plasma display from the address buffer boards that go under the screen the prospects aren't good.

All vertical lines in all plasma TVs I have seen are operated by chips embedded in the fabric of the display as well.

When they fail they'd either short or burn open.

In the first case they'd prevent the TV from coming up, in the second they'd typically manifest as either black or a random color vertical line like you have.

This is not repairable...sorry.

The odds of this being something else is fairly minimal in my opinion.

Please don't kill the messenger...

I have vertical lines my 26TA1600 LCD TV. The lines seems to be permanent. What is the cause and how can I resolve it?


Hello,
These vertical line are possible causes of LCD cables from the graphics card. There is no easy fix for this issue and normally requires servicing or part replacement. Try to contact your TV support people or consult you local technicians to diagnose it properly as it might be also the panel itself failing.

Vertical blue line not in vocus


It sounds like you lost a convergence amplifier. There is also the possibility that a resistor on the main circuit board that goes to the horizontal control circuit for the blue CRT/deflection yoke may have a cold solder joint. These circuits generate a considerable amount of heat and can weaken solder joints over time. Try bumping the side of the television and see if the blue line changes or if the blue color returns. If so, then it may very well be a cold solder joint that needs to be touched up. This is one of the first things that an electronic tech tests for - sounds crazy but I've fixed literally thousands of televisions this way. Good luck.

Parallel vertical lines through left side of Panasonic Plasma tv


This sounds like one of the driver boards at the bottom or top of the screen has an intermittent fault. The set will have to be taken in to a service centre.

Gateway laptop vertical dotted lines across the screen


Sounds like a problem with the LCD assembly or cable. You may want to reseat the LCD cable at the LCD end. It could be a loose internal connector in the LCD assembly.
