If it's a complete line down the screen, then likely no. On the LCD screen itself there are these tiny, thin plastic ribbon cables that attach your screen to the circuit board inside and once it tears, it's gone for good. If the calculator is relatively new, ask Texas Instruments' support team to see if you might be able to get either servicing or replacement.

Thin red line down the center of my screen

I'm afraid you'll need a tech on this one.  It could be the panel itself which would be beyond economical repair. If you're lucky it may be a bad connector/connection.

No image in my screen

When you ask for help, give make and model number. In this case, if display is a CRT type (cathode ray tube, not LCD), then a horizontal single line in the center of the screen indicates a lack of vertical deflection. If it is a vertical line in the center of the screen, it is a lack of horizontal deflection. Both problems can be caused by any number of components, all internal, and requires a technican to repair. Lowrance has a fixed fee system for their factory repairs. See their online info for support:

Red line in the middle of my plasma screen

Hi leprecoce,
One transistor out of millions has failed shorted. That is an unusual failure mode, but not unheard of. The chip can probably be replaced, you might want to check google maps or for a repair shop near you.
Most shops should be able to give you an estimate, I would guess around $300, unless the chip is hard to get.

Screen fading with lines in it

I had the same problem with mine - it is 5 years old and very well used. I was told I could send it for repair, but opted to purchase a new unit. You can find service centers on line. The cost did not seem to justify being without GPS and then still having a well used system. This was the best solution for me.

Cracked screen

Unfortunately, the only way to "fix" this is to replace the flat panel itself. This is not a cheap repair. I don't have a source for parts for your model. I would check with the place of purchase or look in the owner's manual for a service center and inquire about the replacement parts cost. Be prepared for a large number.

My samsung SPH-m500 is freeze and lock with a big syder on screen and nothing work on it ????

You will need to turn the phone off for two minutes. And then turn it back on. If this doesn't work, then try doing a hard reset which returns the phone to manufacturer settings. You will lose all contacts and data by doing a hard reset. Make sure contacts are copied down. You will need to reprogram your phone after hard reset. If this doesn't work then you will need to visit a repair center. There is a nominal charge for diagnostic and repair if this issue with your phone is still freezing up if you do not have any repair insurance on your phone line. Hope this helps.
