    Hi Just bought a Toshiba Thrive. It has a strange bright blue line on the screen. It runs the short way across the middle of the screen. It doesn't rotate with the screen and it is right in the middle. It goes from edge to edge on the screen. It is difficult to see when the screen is dark but it is still there. Do i have a defective screen or is there a way to get rid of this blue line?

    First, congrats on your tablet, and welcome to the forum. Second, that does sound like an issue with the device, does it ALWAYS show, or only when you are using certain apps, or does it go away when you load certain apps. Basically I am trying to tell if it is hardware or software.

    Either way, no that is not normal, and you may want to explore getting it exchanged.

    Sorry,
    Peter
