Thin Green line from top to bottom of screen

Appx 3 inches from the left of the screen and then on the far right side of the screen is a thin green line that runs from the top to the bottom of the screen. Is this something that can be fixed reasonably or do I just need to buy a new monitor?

Usually the case with this issue is the LCD panel itself. After a certain long period of time, some LCD panels just bug out and stop working. ( not sure why, possibly the way they were assembled and manufactured. For instance the LCD Panel has 8 connectors ((top)) and 3 connectors ((left)) (((Depends on model)))that attach to the main board of the LCD Panel, and on many occasions the thin lines wear and cut and therefore loosing part of your screen. If i explain further how it works i can write you a good explanation, just message me. That is the issue or the Cable connector from the Video Card to the LCD Panel is faulty. Try replacing that or the line will stay there for a long while then eventually your LCD display will begin to show more lines and eventualy Nebula itself. ( unusable )

You can also try repairing the LCD, in some rare cases the only problem when the line shows up is because of the video genesis card inside the FPD. try swapping that out with a known good one and perhaps that will work otherwise eventually the monitor will begin to stop working over time.

Thin vertical green line


Could you please specify what type of screen this is? Or any other information that could help identify what type of screen it is?

A thin vertical line in a screen could be a faulty cable, faulty graphics card or even that the screen is faulty itself. But with more information on the screen the problem would become clearer.

I have a thin yellow line running from top to bottom about 10 inches from the left side, what's wrong?


This can be due to faulty LCD driver IC which creates a noise bar and is shown. Check the cords to the display and also the ground connection to the display. If this is good then the IC can be faulty.

Thin red line in middle of screen on nec 42 inch plasma monitor


I had the same problem -red, vertical bars along the right side of my Samsung 42" Plasma- and this is what fixed it: Removed unterminated cable.
I had hooked up an HD video camera to the set about two weeks ago. While I disconnected the camera I left the other end of the connector cable plugged into the T.V.. As I've since learned from friends who work in television, this is what's called an "unterminated cable" -meaning one end is unconnected. It can lead to problems with electrical interference and appears to have been the problem in this case; When I disconnected this cable from the T.V. the red bars went away.
So, check your cables. Make sure everything is properly connected and get rid of anything that might be picking up interference.

Thin yellow line on the right of the LCD Screen


all those sounding intelligent and saying that replacing lcd hardware will fix the problem probably didnt have the problem themseleves . i had exactly same problem with samsung syncmaster 2043swx monitor . i just restarted and booted into safe mode ( by pressing F8 key at startup ) tried changing reolution in display settings . rebooted in normal mode and asll lines are gone and never appear again . i am uisng windows Vista . so i think it is probably a driver glitch something .

Green line from top to bottom of monitor


Try changing your resolution, if the lines stay in the exact same position (so do not change together with the resolution) this might be a mediacentre issue. Press CNTRL-ALT-DEL and see in the processes tab if ehtray.exe is running. If it is running, turn it of by unchecking it and see if the lines disappeared.
