Hi if I complete this thread without making a hash of it ,it'll be a first,my wife bought me a tablet about a year ago and I think it has a mind of it's own.I can't seem to get the hang of it.At the moment it has a big black line down the middle of the screen,I think it was Avast anti theft when I deleted all of Avast but never mind.So hello to you all and may your brain not be cooked like mine.cheers and help.Ed

Welcome to the forum

It doesn't sound to me like removing AVAST would have caused a line to appear in the screen. Does it ever go away?

No it never goes away it's from one end of the screen to the other and it's growing into a blob at one end.Cheers Leeshor

Thank you Spider I am pretty clueless although I changed my daughter's battery on her Nexus[wow] but apps and software I am hopeless.

I'm thinking you may have a hardware issue. The best way to tell would be to copy your media/data off the tablet and do a factory reset.

Hi Leeshor, I've already done a factory reset but my sad face didn't smile when I booted up,still the same stupid black line.Update on the line,it is very slowly growing thinner and migrating to one end of the screen and forming a black[surprisingly]blob,the little git,kind of lozenge shape.Cheers Leeshor

I get the impression it either needs a repair or you need to plan on a new tablet purchase. ;)

I may end up giving it the Birmingham screwdriver as it's doing my nut,tried titanium to root it out but my Joy Tab [that's a laugh] isn't rooted,ran a few scans with the anti virus,all clear it says,but there is something there and it's not a screen burn as the line is getting slightly smaller and the screen is clear when the line has moved. I assume you havn't come accross this little black monster yet.Cheers Leeshor.Ed
