If the bars appear on the screen regardless of the computer connected to the system, then the problem is the LCD itself.
If the issue only occurs connected to a particular system, then the video adapter in the system is bad.

You can also try different calbes and different inputs (DVI, Analog/VGA) and see if there is any difference. Again, if the lines are always there, regardless of input cable or system, then the LCD is failing

You can check with a local TV repair shop about an LCD replacement, or you can check places like EBay for replacement monitors

Vertical red lines no matter what input.


I'm assuming you're dealing with an LCD flat panel monitor.

If you've tried different input and from different computers and different cables, and you're still seeing vertical red lines, it's highly likely that the LCD is failing and there's not much that can be done easily to fix it. You will probably need to replace the LCD panel.

If the red lines are in different locations each time you power on, then it could be a controller board issue. But, if the lines are always in the same place, it's probably the LCD panel itself.

Thin vertical colour bars from top to bottom across full width of screen


Welcome to FixYa,

Below are the top reasons why there are "colour bars" running across the screen :
  1. Corrupted video driver
  2. Changes in hardware configuration (display)
  3. Monitor issue (hardware)
In order to determine if it's hardware/software issue, all you need to do is to boot to BIOS and check if the problem replicates. Depending on system, you can go to the BIOS screen by tapping "F2" or "DEL" key repeatedly as soon as you turn on the computer until you see a different screen.

If the problem is present while in BIOS, then definitely the monitor needs to be repaired by an authorized repair center. Otherwise, video driver update or Operating system re-install can resolve this problem.

Hope this helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.

Horizontal lines on Screen


Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

Lines across screen


Is it sort of rolling almost.
If so you have a few bad capacitors in the power supply that need to be replaced.
If you dare to venture inside you should see 1 or more buldging caps. (bowing upwards on the top)
If these start to fail, then they will interupt the correct flow of power and cause this problem with your panel.
Easy to fix if you are electronically minded, if not, take it to your local TV tech and it shouln't cost that much to have repaired.
Remember, inside these monitors is high voltage that can kill, even if it's not plugged in.

A thin horizontal line across the screen


I know I have seen thin lines in the past on older CRT monitors, these are usually wires which support the aperture grill. LCD is just a panel so this must be something different. What color is the line? It is probably an error in the scanning process.
