    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.

    The green line you are seeing is the digitizer....if it were pixels it would be in only one square on the screen. The layers between the lid and the digitizer will sometimes get stuck together in a spot that has been touched...once it is stuck together it forms the green lines all the way down the length of the screen
    Playing some games where you have to repeatedly touch or hold the screen can add to this issue...there is no fix other than replacing the digitizer...sorry for the bad news

    Open your phone keypad and type: *# 0*#
    After you have typed in the code, the service menu opens automatically. In the top row you will find three different tiles: Red, Green, Blue
    Tap all three tiles (separately) and check on the display with the eye whether a pixel errors exist. A pixel error occurs as a dark spot.
    I did this and it went away on it's own

    I had the dreaded thin green line on my 2 month old Galaxy S8+. There's an app in the Google Play Store called Pixel Fixer. I'm totally amazed how well it worked! After running the app for less than a minute, the green line is gone!! It was a stuck pixel, so don't give up until you try this app!
