Lacie 19" Electron Blue - Black screen with a brilliant white line across
Sorry to have to join this argument, but I'm having the exact problem, a 2.5 year old monitor.. The crisp white line is however dead center, which began about 2 weeks ago..
I had moved the monitor near a power source when I first noticed this, but have moved it away.. It can be interferring and is not recommended..
But it still got worse, this morning I got the white line repeatedly, turning it on/off 8-10 times made no difference.. Like now this is just a fluke that I haven't lost the image for 20 min.. I'm using 1280X960 res. on 85 Hz, seems stable.. Haven't had the ominous flickering line which comes before the spectacularly glum finale yet..
For now I switch off the screen every moment I leave it, not to risk irreversal condition while hunting for solutions, but unless someone has a solution to this unbearable condition, I foresee a proper 'dent' in my purse buying a new monitor..

I have 2 of these monitors and have this problem. I was so frustrated
turning the monitor off and on until the white line disappeared that
one day, I punched the screen. And it worked! So now whenever this
happens (about once every other day) I use my palm and smack the lower
left corner of the monitor until the white line disappears. I like the
color on these screens so I don't want to replace them until I have to.
I will NOT buy another Lacie though.

Download this monitor test [url]http://www.iiyama.com/Download/documents/ice_pages_documents/21/MonTest_2_1.exe[/url] and click on 'convergence' Now manually change the convergence setting of your monitor with the onscreen buttons to align the red/green/blue lines
maybe ur screen was put into a lot of magnetic interference. so check for any magnetic rays emitting devices like speaker adapters etc. a simple check would be to degauss( its in the screen properties).
mt, the 6 to 8 lines you were seeing were most likley the prelude to the end of the monitor. If the problem only occurs when the screen saver comes on then I could say the driver maybe being corrupted by a certain screensaver picture or program. When the monitor warms up to a certain temprature the electronics start to fail. You may want to turn off the monitor while your not right in front of it to cool it down and prolong its use.
This problem of loss of vertical deflection with the line offset from center suggests a cold solder connection in the vertical sweep circuit or in the power supply to the vertical sweep circuit. Most service shops should be able to fix.
