One of our display screens has been displaying thin colored lines along the right side of the screen. Thin alternating colored lines, about 6" wide. (as shown in photo.

Display is playing from a media player, we've changed the media player, we/ve changed the input used from DVI to HDMI, changed the cables, etc.

Nothing seems to help. Over time, the problem does seem to be worsening.

Not sure, but I think this is a Samsung 550DX or similar, about 3 years old.

Fixable, trashable? What can the cause be (and fix).

Thanks for the help.

It appears the panel itself has been damaged. With a unit this old, it is probably less expensive to just replace it rather than attempting a repair since the repair shop will likely only have field scrap to work with.

We, The Unwilling, led by The Unknowing, are doing the impossible for The Ungrateful.
