Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Veiwsonic VA2026w. Yellow tint down R/h of display.

I purchased the above monitor six months ago. An opaque 2" yellow vertical line began flashing intermittently down the right hand side of the display.

This has now become a permanent addition to enhance my viewing pleasure (not).

I have checked graphic card, re- installed monitor and display drivers, removed any magnetic fields around monitor and even resorted to full virus/malware scans.

With no positive results from this little adventure i have re-installed my O/S and patted my head and rubbed my belly!!

Any Takers???

Which OS are you running?
Try this, after staring your PC press CNTRL-ALT-Delete and go to the processe TAB. Check if you see EHTRAY.EXE running.If so kill it and see if the yellow line disappears. ehtray.exe is part Mediaplayer and runs on startup, sometimes causing strange things.

You can remove it from the registry safely but if youé not familiar with the registry don't do it because 1 error might mess up your PC.

    Check the link in my answer, there are some other files known to cause strange behavior mentioned there.

    One other option, turn the brightness of your monitor all the way down by using the adjusting buttons on the monitor itself, if the yellow line is still there, i'm afraid your monitor has given up on you. If the line disappears, it's most likely a software issue and it should be solvable.

Lines on screen


The screen has a connection for each line on the display and the soldier on some of these connections has gone intermittent. When the unit becomes warm enough, the soldier expands and the connections become more consistent.
If you're skilled, this can be repaired. If not, either replace the unit or take it to a reputable technician.

Red vertical line down right side of the screen


hi

I think your TV have a trouble inside lcd panel
the controller board contains driver IC. Deffective driver IC can cause of line display.

Three reasons why one vertical line accross screen can happen in LCD;

1.The missing signal from the controller IC to
LCD driver.
2. LCD driver IC itself defective
3. Dry contact in the tape carrier package.

Use masking or electrical tape to mark it where the line was located. press it if the line back to normal but when release your hand came back i think it was intermittent. Open the LCD panel

One or both of the following:

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 9300 and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.
Not sure if the Compaq Presario has an external monitor plug, but if it does the above procedure can be applied to that one as well.

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 .

My Sony SDM N80 screen has turned yellow!


Well, I have 2 of these monitors and one began acting in a similar fashion right before the cable went bad. I acquired a replacement from another person with a broken monitor but I believe this site sells them too (but they aren't cheap).
