I have a Samsung lcd monitor,Model# 2443BW
Last night it developed a bright green line running from top to bottom on the right side.
Does anyone know if this can be fixed or is it a faulty monitor?
Thanks

it could just be a pixel problem, there are websites and programs that will throw as many colors as a monitor can handle, to kind'ov "refresh it" might work, might not, but its worth a try. you could also try to hit the refresh button on you monitor. if neither of these solutions work, then you have a bad monitor. i will try to find that web page or program i was talking about, dont have it on hand, that is unless someone posts it before me.

EDIT: I almost forgot, you could also change the resolution of the screen, if the green line moves with your changing screen size it is not your monitor, at that point it could even be a faulty video card, but my money is on the monitor.

EDIT, can you see your white mouse over the green line?

Re:Green line on monitor

Thanks for the advice Homesick, I tried a few things, nothing is helping.
I have called Samsung, They are going to replace it.

This is an LG42" plasma tv i had a couple of years ago that developed two black lines when it was just over 12 months old.

I had terrible trouble getting them to accept responsibility for it as they said it was out of warranty.

Yeah i was very unimpressed with it. Got it sorted eventually though, with the retailer and the LG supplier and us all taking one third of the cost of a new tv.

Would that not void your warranty? LOL

I don't think i'd do that cacti, if i broke the screen i'd have absolutely no comeback then, would i? ;)

Feel free to try it with yours. Do let me know how you get on ROFL
