When I twist the screen the line goes away, so is the whole screen shot or what? I've opened up the laptop, but nothing looks awry, although I'm not sure what I'm looking for. If it does need to be replaced, do you know if I need an inverter? I've checked ebay, and I'm not really sure which one I need. Are screens easy enough to replace--easy, as say, replacing the keyboard?

Re: Vertical red line on LCD computer screen
When the problem is lines/pixalization or whole areas Black or discolored it is generally the LCD T.A.B.(Tape-Automated Bonding) technology is no longer transferring data. So to make a long story short your LCD is going. But it could last for years before any further problems arise. If it is that annoying replace it.

Being a whole vertical row of pixels, I'm afraid it does sound like dead pixels on the LCD.
Before splashing out on a new LCD it would be worth re-seating the connection to the screen. The cable goes up through the hinge so wIth the constant opening and closing the cable can get moved or pinched. I have seen that in the past. Normally that would effect the whole display but it's worth a look at.
Have you had a mac techie look at it? They would check for that before charging you for a new LCD.
You can save some money by picking up spares on ebay. Just depends on if you are confident enough to fit it yourself. As it is not that easy!
In your caseHi
normally with vertical stripes it can happen due to
1.a bad LCD (small little chip inside LCD and can't manual repair)
2.a loose connection cable
so here what I do is first I try to tap at the back of the LCD and see that the problem goes away or not.If yes then a loose connection.
if no what I would do here ,coz I have a spare LCD I just exchange to test it...if the problem goes away then a BAD LCD.
Incase of verticle line due to bad LCD you can't repair it trust me.All the small IC chips are blended with board and can't really be repair.More quesiton feel free to post here.
what i recommend you to test is to press behind your monitor and see that the line goes off or not.If it does..that mean you have a loose connection,it can be fix.Incase no then you have problem with your LCD.Normally if its LCD problem then you fix this problem,all you have to do is change the LCD.
Some of the many connections to the TFT screen panel matrix itself have have either been damaged or have decayed. These tiny connections are bonded along the edges of panel and are not viably serviceable. The most common causes are impact, stress (twisting) and condensation/moisture ingress. A replacement screen panel is needed.
Check with www.lcdrepair.net if you want a repair. Something is wrong with your LCD controller and or GUI interface circuit or the circuit supplying power to it. If your technically endowed, you may want to open the monitor case and clean the dust and lint from around the circuits using a Small paint brush to sweep away any built up dust. These circuits take the Signal from the computer and controls the 2.5 million pixels on the LCD screen. Dsut can cause major problems with handling all that data. Give it a shot, what do you have to loose, its not dangerous if the monitor is unplugged.
