Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Hi there, I have a faulty Plasma TV, Fujitsu Plasma Model PDS 4234W-S. It has a thin white vertical line about 1/3 of the way inset from the left hand side. I was wondering if you could please provide a rough estimate of what it would cost me to fix this. I understand this is difficult without seeing the TV first, but if you could please provide me with an idea of whether it is economical or not to fix this, that would be wonderful. Thanks :)

Well in my experience ZMarshall, repairing tv's typically cost about as much as a new one. Basically they will have to replace the entire screen, with parts and labor you could be looking at a grand.

Suddenly a very thin vertical yellow/white line appearing on my HP desktop monitor? pls help


Does it appear THE MOMENT you turn the unit on?

If it does, then you will have to run the monitor's self-test function by turning it on with the data cable (the one that does NOT connect to the power outlet) DISCONNECTED from the computer.

If the line still appears, then the monitor is faulty & cannot be "repaired". Usually, the entire LCD module is replaced.

If the line does not appear in the self-test mode, then check if it's connected to an ON-BOARD display adapter (typically found in the back of the machine, towards the middle area, towards where the ethernet cable and USB devices plug in) or a EXPANSION CARD (normally located towards the BOTTOM part in the back of the machine).

If it plugs in to the on-board slot, then the motherboard may be faulty. If it plugs in to an expansion card, then it's the card that may need to be replaced.

Of course, these are merely possibilities, but the most likely failing component here is the monitor itself. Busted display adapters very rarely, if at all, manifest these horizontal or vertical lines and STILL boot up. Regardless if it's on-board or expansion card, a failing display adapter would normally have either no display at all, or it would just simply stop booting up (screen remains dark: no lines).

HI my viewsonic monitor is hving problem when i switch on my system it shows me a horizontal line on the screen, except that line i cant see any thing and eveything else is black on the screen..


The entire image is squeezed in that thin line because the vertical deflection unit has failed - the monitor will have to be opened, the vertical circuit identified and replaced - all this must be done by a repairman so take it as fast as you can to one. If you keep it functioning this way for long the screen will be burned.

Very faint vertical bar moving across plasma screen.


OK... Left to Right is weird. I'd say one of two things.
Refresh Rate might be to low or to high, but i doubt this to be the cause. I'll put my money on external interferences. Something like another PC screen? TV? anything magnetic and I've even in some cases noticed PC side panels too close to a screen can cause this.

I have one red verical line on my monitor. Is there a way to fix it or is it better to plan on buying another monitor?


Hi,

If the monitor is a conventional CRT type:
  • if the line is top to bottom, then the horizontal deflection yoke and/or an HV capacitor is faulty;
  • if the line is left to right, then chances are the vertical amp IC is defective.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

It's a hardware fault, you will normally notice if you push on the screen at the top of the line it will disappear, unfortunately you will have to replace the screen.

Black screen


Hi,

Sounds like a vertical problem if the center line is left to right. Chances are that it's the Vertical IC. If giving the TV a light tap at the sides causes a momentary opening, then it is a cold solder condition on the same IC.

Both of course would require opening the TV and performing the necessary repair. You should be familiar with components and electronic circuitry as well as soldering.  Should you be not that comfortable, perhaps your best bet is to seek the services of a qualified TV technician.

Good luck and kind regards.
