Thick Black Line on Screen

My laptops screen has a thick black line close to the middle of the screen. I tried moving the screen around to see if it had any effect but it didn't. I restarted the computer and that did nothing - the thick black line is still there.

This is caused by dead pixel sensors. There are hundreds of pixel sensors at the edges of the screen, when they go out it will cause a line varying in size depending on the amount of sensors that go out, and the line can vary in color, red, blue, green, white, and black. Unfortunately, the only fix for this is to replace the screen.

check if the lines appear on different inputs or source like hdmi,av,pc, if it happens on a different source then theres a problem with the lcd screen it needs to be fix.

Toshiba 32sl410u have 2 vertical lines on screen


Likely a shop repair but:

Either a bad board (main, or power or even a inverter board)

Worst case if Black line and thick would be the panel (screen unit) which would be fatal but is not likely if lines not black.
