Just today my monitor has developed a black line about 1/8 inch wide along the top of the screen about 1/16 inch from the top,
This is common on all my computers(XP,W7)
My monitor is Hannspree jmo1-22.
Any guidance would be appreciated
Does the monitor have a startup splash screen or a full colored screen (eg blue screen) if the input cable is disconnected? If the black line appears on such a screen that is generated independent of computer input, that would confirm a fault in the monitor. Simply from the description, it seems likely to be a fault in the LCD panel, such as a line driver IC.
Thanks for your interest and reply.
If i disconnect the input cable all i am left with is a black screen so i can't tell if the black line is there or not.
I am pretty sure the problem is the monitor because the line is visible on my other computers all of which have different video cards.
The monitor is about two years old.I would have expected it to give five years good service.
