Black vertical lines are visible on the screen
• Thin vertical black lines on one or both sides of the screen. This minor condition is

• Position an open white window over the affected area of the screen and maximize

which will clear in a few minutes. Be sure to readjust the brightness and contrast
controls back to the normal viewing level after this procedure.
