Vertical Yellow Line on Left Side of Picture

Seems like a lot of people are having issues with this set. Of course, mine is now out of warranty and am curious about this problem. The TV worked fine and then one day, a vertical yellow line appeared on the left side of the picture about 6" from the edge of the screen. Any thoughts to the problem at hand and is this worth the money to get it fixed. Or am I better off just getting a new set and learning my lesson? Thanks for your advice.

I would try to update the drivers for the display adapters, to do this, go to start>control panel>system>hardware(tab)>device manager>display adapters and select the appropriate adapter and double click it and go to the driver tab and update driver. If this doesn't work, go to device manager and try updating the drivers to the Monitors.....same thing.

Dell Latitude D505 half of screen is black with colored vertical lines.


Sounds like you have a section of dead pixels. This can happen if the laptop has been dropped a lot or stepped on or some type of impact on the laptop. This is a hardware issue. You will need to have the screen replaced. In my opinion, by the age of the laptop, its better off getting a new one.

Hi,

If this line is present on every window you open, it may be a problem with the LCD itself. As it is new and I presume still under warranty, I recommend you to take it back to the after sales to get it checked.

By experience, I can tell that in most cases, this type of line on the monitor comes from a defective LCD monitor, and if it is the case, it should deteriorate with time.

A yellow vertical line is appearing on the left side of my compaque 610 screen... how i can i remove it?


  1. Run the laptop only on battery, if there is no line then check & replace your Power plug & Power adapter.
  2. Connect an external monitor, check if display is coming OK.
  3. If Display is coming then your LCD is faulty & need to replace.

Blue vertical line


The lines appearing on your LCD means it has a defect on the screen.

There are 3 types of pixel defect
1) dead pixel - pixel is always off
2) stuck pixel - pixel is always on
3) hot pixel - pixel is on but in red, green, blue or yellow, can also be a light black color

You can try to fix stuck or hot pixels but dead is dead.
1st method, flashing different colors rapidly:
JSScreenfix.com has a great tool. This is their free java applet or you can download it below.

2nd method, applying pressure to pixel:
Damp paper towel, Small stylus or dull pencil.

3rd method, tapping the pixel:
Pen with cover on or another small, blunt object.


If your laptop is still under warranty, get it replaced. If not you are looking at the most expensive part in a laptop to get replaced. (LCD screens on laptop is roughly equivalent to 40-60% of the total laptop cost

Please rate this if it this helps.

The "On" button is located on the left top side of the keyboard - it is the button that has a circle with a vertical line through it.

HP Pavilion ZD8000 vertical lines issue


Hi,
In answer to your question. It may be a screen problem. as the screen has a Matrix of vertical and horizontal line configuration.
I,d suggest trying the laptop/computer on an external monitor or screen. if it works fine on an external. then it could be assumed that the TFT Panel or invertor has a fault.
if the picture/display still has vertical lines on an external monitor, then the fault may lie, with the Mainboard.

Process of elimination, before spending any Money :)

My screen showing a vertical line


Replace the laptop under warranty. No point trying to fix the error and voiding the warranty.
