Vertical lines more or less... baclk is grey and blured
I've got vertical lines all over my monitor.
Tehy are invisible and only are noticeable when working with text. Reading a webapge or working with word is becoming a pain.
Ever inch or so I've got a invisible line that turns BLACK TEXT GREY and BLURED!!! (forgive the caps..)
I can see it as I write this...
It's making it very hard to work with this problem....
Anybody got any ideas? or is it time for a new monitor....

It could be a bad connection somewhere. Try checking:
-Where the video cable plugs into the PC. Remove and check for bent pins, corrosion and replace and firmly reconnect using the thumbscrews on the connector.
-Where the video cable plugs into the monitor. Some LCD monitors have removable cables some don?t; if yours does follow the same procedure outlined above.
-Could be a problem with an internal connection. A quick test and perhaps even fix would be to grasp the right and left sides of your display while it is on (displaying the offensive lines) and gently twist like you were wringing out a towel. Again, and I emphasize, gently using only a couple of ounces of force. Watch to see if the lines disappear, get worse of make the screen flash or change. If you do then its likely cause is the connector from the LCD panel to the electronics has oxidation or a loose connection. If you?re lucky the flexing might even fix your problem, if not you will have to take it apart to find out exactly what is going on.
If that doesn?t work then the next thing to try is connecting the display on another computer to see if it also displays the same lines. If the lines are still there then the problem is in your display and depending on its value and your finances you might consider taking it to a repair shop for an estimate. If the lines are gone take it back to the original PC to see if the lines reappear. If they do then I would suspect your video card or drivers as the likely candidate.

I have dual AOC i2553ph monitors. One day I came into work and notice one of them had a single vertical white line moving slowly back and forth across the screen that looked like a scan or radar function. I reset the monitor from the OSD and all is well again. Use "Extra > reset" from the OSD on AOC monitors.
Connect an external monitor to the laptop and see if it also has the vertical lines. If the external monitor looks fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is bad. If the monitor has the vertical lines displayed on it, then your graphics card or motherboard is bad. Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided.

The monitor sounds like its going to die. The problem is because of the LCD Panel.
A monitor should have 2-3 boards, a logic board, an inverter, and a power supply
Lastly the LCD Panel which should consist of a crystal mirror, LCD Panel(has the circuitry and the brains for information/images that display), and backlights.
The LCD Panel is the problem. It needs to be replaced.
Yes it sucks, but usually LCD monitors last for so long, but in some cases they wear out by use and the thin circuitry that provides the power to create colors and images, begin to die. Im sorry. Its really the only solution unless you have the expensive equipment used to make the panels.
My recommendation is to replace it and it should work spankingly new.
Does this unit have an external power supply (wall wart)? If so, substitute a known good one of similar specs. If the original is 12 Volts/1.2 Amps, find a 12-15 Volt/1.2 or greater Amp.
DO NOT go over the voltage more than about 15-20%.
DO NOT go under the current rating less than 90% for just long enough to see if it works.
Be sure the connector fits PERFECTLY!!! Some will appear to fit but will be loose.
Do not under any conditions replace a DC supply with an AC one or vice-versa.
The horizontal sweep signal to the yoke is bad.
Since other problems exist, the problem may be in the IHVT HI voltage transformer area. Check for bad solder around the IHVT pins and yoke plug.
I hope this helps.
