    Yes, please do! We're testing it on two computers in the same house and cannot figure out why sometimes the green line is on one screen, sometimes on the other, and sometimes on both. arghhh... please advise.

    the receiving computer has a 2 inch vertical green line in the middle of the screen. Does anyone know why and how to fix this or just not buy logitech webcams????

    I have the same problem (green line and fuzzy picture) when I use Skype with friends on Comcast and Charter (mine is Cox Cable). Using Skype with two computers on Cox Cable doesn't have the problem. Could this be a transmission problem?

    You appear to have a similar problem to me (timoi, posted on 2nd March 2009), esmxyz14 (posted on Feb 28, 2009), and bobdean2 (posted on on Dec 06, 2008). Your line is green - we are seeing yellow, but it is still a vertical line. Has anyone found an answer yet?

Looking through a Skype forum thread, there appears to be at least 2 issues. First, for Logitech cam users you can try the following:

- Go to Skype / Tools / Options / Video Settings / Webcam settings / Advanced.
The contents of this window will vary depending on the particular model of camera that you have. If there are options for "Low Light Boost" and "Automatic Gain Control", turn them off. Adjust the manual sliders in the window to get reasonable video quality.

This seems to work for some people.

Then there is the more fundamental issue of Skype driver. Here is the link to the thread (http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showtopic=97038) but the essence is that the older the driver the more likely the issue. Even with the latest driver it is not a guaranteed fix, but many people seem to suggest that downloading the latest drivers works for at least some of the time. Clearly Skype have known about this for a while and are dragging their heels sorting it out.

Hope this helps, T.

    what a stupid site! you have sent me an email with my own solution to my own problem! The only reason I had to fix it myself is because even though there are clearly at least 5 or 6 other people with the same problem, and some of them have had them posted for nearly a year, no one has supplied a solution. So ratings for Fixya - 0 out of 10.

On the left side there is a 2 inch line top to bottom (looks neon color and fuzzy) and a small black line in the center of the screen


Is it on every input? Like if you switch to watch a dvd, does it remain? If so, you need a repair. Contact your manufacturer for an authorized servicer.

Curved blue lines on screen.


You have a completely different problem. The screen voltage for the blue picture tube is slightly too high on your set. This will put fine lines in the background of the picture, called retrace lines. This is very common and easy to correct. Remove the front speaker cover and the access panel behind it. Look inside and you will see a black box with six controls, each control having a little white glue on it. This is the Focus/Screen block. Three controls are labeled Focus and three are labeled Screen. The screen control in the center is for green but I am not sure if the screen control on the left or right is for blue for your model. With the TV on, set it to VIDEO 1 but do not connect anything to the VIDEO 1 jacks. This will produce a pure dark picture, showing any faint lines in the background. Choose one of the screen controls and increase (turn clockwise) it slightly. If the blue lines do not get brighter it means you are turning the red screen control, so put it back where it was and choose the other screen control. When you find the blue screen control, decrease (turn counter-clockwise) it until just when the blue lines are gone. If you want you can check that the red and green screen controls are set to just below the point where their faint lines are visible. When done, replace the panels and your picture will be back to perfect.

Side shadows on picture


it sounds as if there are speakers to close to the tv or the built in speakers are not magnetically sheilded properly (maufacturer defect) if u have or have ever had speakers on the left and right side of your tv then the magnets in them will discolor and distort the screen. sometimes even long after the speakers have been moved away from the tv it will still look that way. you may try going to the library( or online )and looking in tv repair books on how to build a homade degauser unless your tv has that feature built into it in the menu somewhere like some computer monitors do. I had placed the front speaker of a 5.1 surround sound system on top my tv and it cuased that same problem, but i found out that by placing a small round magnet with a hole in the center on top of the tv (after removing the speaker for good) right where the discoloration was.. had to flip it one side or the other to get proper effect...it immediatly took away most of the discoloration and over time it disappeared. I hope this helps. Please email me at agclay777@comcast.net as to your conclusion in case it will help others. thanks, Adam
