CRT Monitor Displays only a thin bright horizontal line

\015 I have an around 3years old Zenith Brand P-IV PC with Windows XP Media Center 2005 & 19''CRT Monitor . Recently my monitor started displaying only a thin bright horizontal line in the center of the monitor. Initially if I banged the sides of the monitor lightly, the display would become normal. But now nothing helps. I checked the connections of all the cables, they are fine. I removed & reconnected them, but with no positive result. The PC seems to work fine, as the color of the line changes as per the change in display on the screen. My current wallpaper is green colored, so it displays a green line. As soon as the screen saver starts it displays the color of screen saver. What's wrong with my monitor. Is it repairable. Please Help Me Soon.\015

Answers :

Vertical IC loose connection. Best is to reflux it or resolder. It is in internal circuitry inside the monitor commonly an upside single line IC.

And its a minor repair only. But I recommend it to be serviced by a qualified technician. Inside it are plenty of nasty voltages. It might caught you.

The vertical output components either a transistor or an IC is probaly got a bad solder joint. Another posibility is the deflection yoke pins may have the same problem. If you feel like tearing into the monitor, take the back off of it after it is unlpugged and disconnected from the computer and check the bottom of the circuit board for bad solder joints. Walmart and Radio Shack both sell soldering irons and solder for electronic work to repair the connections.................TLC
