    Default Green line on left of screen

    I've searched the forum, but can't find any threads on this.

    I have a green line down the left of the screen, it's thin but pretty annoying. I assume the manufacturer warranty should cover this and I'll get a replacement?

    It's not been dropped, no cracks, no scratches.

    I have seen this before when running certain custom ROMs... Actually a theme that myself and my partner worked on had this problem... Don't know why and I don't believe its really a hardware issue, I think its just a fluke.... After a few updates or something, to our theme I forget what it was we did but it disappeared....

    FYI, it happened to us only during the notification pull down screen when expanded.

    This may be unrelated, but I have a green dot on my screen. I am scared that it might be a stuck (or even dead) pixel. I have already used several pixel-fixing methods, to which none were successful. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    The green line is common to all Super Amoled displays. I have never seen a Galaxy S or Nexus S without it.

    You may want to run a pixel test. It is very common because of the sub-pixel arrangement. In the picture below, that is the arrangement of the Nexus 1 and Nexus S. You're seeing that green line. Same goes for most of the Super AMOLED displays, since they use the same Pentile Matrix display.

    Many topics about this issue were on XDA, and many confirmed they had it. When previously not knowing they did, until they looked for it. Again it's a common issue, and it's because of the sub-pixel arrangement.

    Could you please explain which 4 test you did ? I'm having HTC Desire HD, previously I found one small green dot on screen which then grown to green vertical line. Once my phone switched off due to low battery, on restart I found it is resolved.
    Now, Again I'm having same issue, this time it is not being resolved on restart. Please advise.
    Thanks in advance.
