Please specify if the line appears always in same spot on your display and I may be able to assist. However, please note that if your device is still in warranty it would be very adviceable to send it for a repair because if the problem is related with what I think it does, it will require dissasembling the unit in order to fix it and this will void your warranty. Please reply back with these informations and I will try to troubleshoot this for you.

I have a toshiba flat screen TV about 2 years old. The annoying problem is that in the middle of NCIS the characters are talking but I can't read lips. Missing the audio happens five or six time

I have noticed a similar problem and after reading a circular that arrived through the post, I am beginning to suspect it is being caused by the new 4G mobile phone networks.

The circular offered a free filter to prevent such interference.

Scrolling Line Propblem

You have a ground loop problem. Buy an adapter that lifts the round ground prong and poof, clean picture.
P.S. Or fix the grounding. More than likely two different ground potentials between Cable/Sat and house ground.

Blue Vertical Line

It is sounding like when the laptop is turned on and heats up a bit, the line appears? Sounds like one of the panels is going bad or atleast has developed a problem. below are some tricks you can try to lessen the annoyance of the line. Dual-Scan STN displays are composed of 2 panels behind a single protective panel or screen. Because you are looking through the protective screen the display appears to be one large panel even though it is not. There is a physical separation line (gap) at the point where the two panels meet. When the computer is on and being viewed it is not unusual to see the visible separation line with the Dual-Scan STN displays. The line, actually the fine gap between the display panels, appears because the color and light pixels cannot run along the very outside edges of the panels. This line (gap) between the panels can be seen as a fine gray line and is most noticeable when viewing on a screen with a white or light background. Note the line may not be as noticeable when the screen is displaying certain colors or darker backgrounds. SUGGESTIONS: It is not possible to completely eliminate the line but there are some things you can try to reduce it's visibility. 1) Lower the display brightness/contrast. The brighter the backlight the more noticeable the line. 2) Use Wallpapers and Screen savers that use darker colors. 3) In the Control Panel/Display applet under appearance try different combinations of color schemes for your Window and Background choice Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

Faint Horizontal Line

Your problem could be a bad LCD screen, and beleive me will get worse with age. It could be a Driver IC is not putting out the proper drive for that matrix of TFT. If you have a warranty, stand by your guns as its not right, so call and have the servicer make it right. Good Luck PS please do not forget to rate this thread.
