Question about Dell E197FP LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Vertical lines on screen

I have a Dell E197FPf LCD monitor. It's had a problem with a single vertical blue line on the right side of the screen for a while now. Recently it added a green line and a few magenta ones.

I've already replaced the video cable. The problem was not resolved. I've also tried the monitor on multiple computers, and on no computer at all. The lines appear anytime the monitor is powered on, no matter what computer it's connected to, or even if it's not connected to any computer.

What else can I try?

Inside the monitor.
I don't know how comfortable, or knowledgeable you are about monitor repairs, but your next step would be to open the monitor, and reconnect any wired connections within.

Make sure to take safety precautions any time you work on the internals of a monitor.

If the monitor is still under warranty, contact them aboout a repair, or replacement.
If it's not, it's time to "go under the hood".

With the cost of LCD montiors as low as they are now, it may not be cost effective to attempt a repair beyond checking internal connections.

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.

Single vertical red line


Hello Monastirion,

Is the red line there all of the time without exception, for instance when you initially turn on your pc, is it there before the operating system boots?

If so, the monitor itself is most likely broken. I would return it to wherever you bought it, if possible.

Regards,

Philips Flat Screen Green Lines


The LCD Panel is defective. You will need to replace the LCD Panel. It will probably be cheaper to replace the monitor since the LCD Panel may exceed the monitor cost.

Single lines of single color (red,green, blue) are LCD panel failures.

1 or 2 lines of single color are LCD Panel failures.

Multple color lines could be anything so in this case you start by checking the power circuit.
