Hello. I have a 32" LCD TV I bought about a year and a half ago. I use it as a monitor for my pc. Yesterday, I noticed a thin vertical line from top to bottom toward the left side of the screen. It's always there, it doesn't come and go, or change width. It does change color based on the background, and based on the color of the background, it seems to disappear entirely. My TV is always running at 1080p resolution. On a pure black screen, all I see is a small blue dot (pixel I'm guessing) where the line normally is, but no line. On a red screen, the dot is still there, but less noticeable, and no line. On a blue screen, I see a thin vertical black line where the blue dot is. On a green screen, I just see the little dot again, but less noticeable, and no line. On a white screen, I see a thin vertical yellow line where the blue dot is.
I could really care less about the dot, that's not a big deal, but the line can be quite annoying. I've tried to "exercise" the blue dot with some tools online, but no success thus far. Is it a pixel issue? Dead pixel? Stuck pixel? Banding? Unfortunately I don't know much about LCD displays. If I could just get the line to go away, that would be awesome. Thank you for your assistance. TV model is below.
