    Sisyphus,



    I have a Polaroid FLM-1511. I am having the exact same problem. It happened once before, but then it cleared up. But now it is doing it again. I also am not using it as a monitor at the moment, but as a TV. The problem also persists when the input is switched to the video setting. I have not tried hooking it up to my PC and I doubt it is a lamp problem as asked by tantong. Did you try resoldering the "caps"? Did you trying anything to fix it?

    Repeating vertical purple lines about 1# wide. Replaced monitor with a new one but the same problem occurs occassionally. If I turn off the PC the lines usually go away for days.

I would suggest that You should check your monitor with another PC. If it still has the same problem, there will be something wrong with your monitor.
Using these following steps to examine your monitor. After you turned PC on and monitor went purple, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

MONITOR HD2200. I TURN IT ON AND THE SCREEN GOES WHITE THEN A FEW VERTICAL COLOR LINES APPEARS AND AFTER A FEW SECONDS IT GOES BLACK.


Hello,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER

Hope this will help out in solving the problem....

The vertical lines/bar are sign of bad T-CON (LCD controller driver) board is bad, it is part of the LCD panel assembly, new screen will be needed, not worth it. You may try reseating the ribbon cable at the panel.

Pink/purple vertical line visible


Anytime you see visible lines running through a display, this is usually an sign of an eminent screen failure. It could stay that way for weeks or the lines could multiply and then it could fail. There is no repair for this, only screen replacement.

LCD Dell Monitor displaying purple and green rather then picture.


sounds like your monitor is starting to go out. if there are any speakers near your monitor, it is likely magnetic interference. try moving your monitor to a different area and see if it still does this. if it does, i would replace the monitor. if it doesn't, just simply reorganize the area around your monitor and it should go away after degaussing the screen.

Vertical lines on left half of screen


The problem is the driver tabs that go from the panel controller board to the panel itself.

This is normally a fatal failure since having it repaired is extremely expensive.
