I have had a faint line appear on the right hand side of my screen. The only time i can see it is when I have the full screen mode on and the picture is white or very light. The best I can tell is that it runs the vertical of the picture when on normal mode with standard tv. What can I do?

Re: a line on the screen
Is the line perfectly strait? Is it seem to be yellowish in color? If it seems yellowish then the light engine is the problem is the blue panel is defective. Sony covers the light engine for two years. The labor you will probably pay for but, not bad concidering the part is 1000.00 or more.

Did you try to press the info button several times? Whatch what happens on the screen, because the camera will cycle through several views.
It is in the manual, under Changing the image information display.
Yes, this is rare but I have seen it before--not fixable if it is what I think it is----It is what is called a Dome effect---the shadow mask in the picture tube is actually contracting and or expanding depending on temperature---
Directly behind the phosphor coating (the stripes that you see on the screen) is a metal screen--the holes or perforations in it line up with the stripes on the phosphor screen.
Some masks either have a material or a defect causing the dome effect----Not likely to be anything else---a Pin amp problem will not usually act the way you describe but a shadow mask inside the picture tube will act exactly that way.
Vertical bands of faint black are generally caused by filtering capacitors and can be found in the power supply or the 5 volt supply or even the Video processing circuit...it is not an easy task to identify the source of Video hum bars.....we also call them Jailbars.
Another problem seen is faint black lines caused by the TV set being in 4:3 mode all the time....right at the edge of where the picture ends and the black pillars begin, we see a faint black line that never goes away and is normally seen with a full screen....
That is actually image retention, but it's caused by the crystals that create the picture becoming polarized or ionized over a very long period of time....and it's not easy to DE-Polarize them !
But there are some theories out on how to do that.... Certain people suggest running the TV overnight with an ALL-WHITE picture and some suggest an ALL BLACK PICTURE...and some suggest alternating between both !!
Now, a black picture is easy to make, you just deactivate the Video Mute (blue screen) and set it to an unused Video INPUT overnight....
About the only way to make a white screen is to use the USB port for pictures and take a very bright outdoor shot of a piece of white paper that hopefully is out of focus too....That would create an all-white picture that you can plug into your TV set overnight....
Now if you decide to try this, deactivate any displays on your TV set...all you do is press the display button until the Video and/or USB input numbers disappear....
Next day , set it back to normal TV and see if it's gone or if it's REDUCED....try it again if needed, or try the exact opposite if you see NO RESULTS....
Hi, It is problem of lcd screen that will be replaced to get correct picture view. Local camera repair shop will replace it or if you have expertise then can replace lcd screen by yourself. Let me know if you need part number of lcd screen for DSC-S930 camera. Thanks.
Boot to Safe-Mode by pressing the "F8" key several times when you first see the windows logo screen. Answer "yes" to enter safe mode. "Right click" on "My Computer", select "Manage", then "Device Manager". Expand "Display Adapter" by clicking on the "+ sign" on the left side of Display Adapters. Highlight the Adapter listed under the Display Adapter line by "left clicking" on it. Then press the "right mouse button" and select "uninstall" to uninstall the display adapter. Now reboot you system (not safe mode) and see if it works. The display text may be very large now. If it works, you need to find your drivers cd that came with the computer and install the video driver using the above procedure but selecting "update driver" instead of "uninstall"
This is normal. Depending on what you have connected to it the lines could be white, black and white specs, or green. Just mode will show the entire picture event the parts that aren't supposed to be seen. I would not recommend that setting. Full is the best mode if you want to see the entire picture in the correct ratio.
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 .
I'm not an expert, but I have determined that the vertical bars that are often red, sometimes blue ... and sometimes both ... are related to a bad control board. I've also read that a common fix is to buy a repair kit with includes the ysus, zsus and control boards ... all replaced together. My experience was that after a month or two with the 1.5" wide stripes, that you eventually loose the entire picture and have sound only. MIne comes back, but won't stay working for very long and the stripes are always there (buy used to fade and flicker sometimes). I'm planning on replacing the control board.
