  1. My uncle gave me a 19" LCD screen that is awesome except for one small problem... There is a green line, one pixel wide, all the way down the center of the screen from top to bottom.

    Has anyone had this problem??
    Can it be fixed yourself without to much hastle?
    If it can't be fixed yourself, could bestbuy or a computer store fix this problem for a reasonable price?

    PLEASE suggest any info you might have!

    Howdy! Welcome to TechSpot

    Need to know what kind it is and what kind of system you are using it on.
    Lcd's can be pricey to fix if no warranty. Nearest qualified repair to me
    is 900+mi away.

    I have an Radeon 9550 256 MB video card with an AMD 2.6 GHz and 1 GB of RAM... but this problem has happened on multiple different systems and is not the computer. It is a 19" LCD that was made by acer and is probably not under warranty

    So this is probably not a problem that a shop like best buy or comp usa could fix?

    Not likely

    No prolly not. If I remember right, acer has componants made
    genericaly with the acer name on it.
    Here in Az they always ship items to factory.
    Maybe try contacting acer to see what shipping and repair will run.
    I know this sucks :mad:
