Unfortunately, your display problem is not repairable, except by replacing the display panel itself. What's happened is that something in the electronics built in to the display panel has failed, and it's keeping that column of pixels stuck on all the time. There isn't any way to get at those electronics to repair them, so the only cure is a new display.

This kind of defect would be something that the manufacturer would fix if the monitor was still under warranty. Yours is probably out of warranty, but it can't hurt to check your owner's manual or the HP website, and see if there's any hope. If your monitor is past any warranty, it's time to look for a replacement.

I wish I had a more positive answer. Thanks for using Fixya anyway!

    Have you tried adjusting the settings? I have the same monitor and had problems with ghosting. I used the software that came with the monitor to fix the problem. While I was making adjustments, I noticed that at certain settings, the monitor will have a similar problem as the one you say you are having.

    You can use the settings menu (the first button on the bottom of the front of the chassis) to change the settings. Here are the ones I am using. I recommend installing the software and, starting with these, make adjustments until you are happy. You can save as many settings setups as you like if you have the software. Here are the settings:

    Settings from the menu
    Brightness: 53
    Contrast: 80
    Color Control: sRGB

    For the following, will need the software:
    Focus: Pitch 60 Phase 38
    RGB: 1 212 2 212 3 212 4 38 5 38 6 38

    If you don't have the software, maybe you can look around for it, but the first 3 settings are the most important ones, anyway, and you can adjust the color levels using the custom color ranges from the menu.

    Hope this helps...

That is a line of uncommanded/dead pixels - the defect is in the LCD panel itself and it's unfixable. Either use the monitor as is or replace it.

There's a green line going down vertically on the monitor screen all the time


a resitor line has failed and you cannot fix it, once they fail thats it ,its there for good. Its same as dead pixels on a monitor, except this is a whole line of pixels, if you hit the area above the line hard it will probably go away but will come back sometime, learn to live with it or buy a new monitor.

Hi, i have AL1716 monitor (2 year old). Recently, there is a blue vertical line which appears on and off sometimes in the monitor. Can anyone suggest on a solution


Is the vertical line always at one location ? (on the screen)
If so, it appears that the video card/driver (on your PC or laptop) may be causing the line to appear occasionally ... i.e. flaky ... and it will likely fail (completely) in due time. To confirm it's the video card, try using another monitor (long enough) to see if it happens.
[ The line may also be caused by "dead" pixel on the screen ... but this usually happens on randomly located pixels on the screen, not on one vertical line. But, it may also be a possibility ... in which case, using a different monitor may prove it one way or the other ]

My Ibm Laptop r51 has a vertical lines on the screen


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.

Black vertical mark on computer


If it is an LCD monitor it sounds like the monitor got cracked when you moved it. Either that or one of the edge connectors has gotten damaged and is causing a dead column of pixels.

One other possibility is a bad video card or video cable, hook the monitor up to another computer and see if the line is still there, if not, video card or cable. If line is still there then there is either a crack or bad edge connector. Crack there is no fix, except a new monitor. Edge connectors can sometimes be repaired by the appropriate service technician.

Good luck

A line of Dead Pixels.


You are right it is a stuck or dead pixel, usually if it is a colred line but not grey it is a stuck pixel at the beginning of the line you can try a utility designed to flash bright colors repetedly over time to see if this will "unstick" it. Also you could have a dry joint on your TCP which would require opening it up to diagnose.

I have a vertical blue line....left of center


If it is narrow you have a dead pixel problem. If so contact HP for advice. Three year warranty on screens and they usually swap out for failures. Very common problem.
