Screen has lines in it

Hello, I have green lines across the screen when I am using my pi-top.  I just built it today and this morning it was working fine.  It now has lines.  Any advice?

Same issue here.  Lines in the screen. Seems screen objects effect the 'lines'. Also some shadowing, etc.  Perhaps a hardware issue?


Fixed Mine by commenting out two lines in config.txt.
# uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA)

Changed to..

Hi guys! Just got a pi top. Built it and switched on. Line across screen with shadows. Dont have any experience with this. Please help
Hi all, I'm on my second pi top from RS and having the same problem with both. If anyone could help as I'm new to the pi top? Thanks, Paul

Same for me. Looks like no news from pi-top guys. Is not it a serious issue?

Is it possible to get a photograph of the effected screens?

Hi, what model of pi-top do you have? Rpi2 or Rpi3? What ZLF number is your Hub? 1539, 1550, 1618? My Rpi2 shows interference dotted lines after about an hour (couldn't make a photo). Ivo.


Sometimes there, sometimes not. Sometimes more, sometimes less. Mostly white, currently yellow.

It is more noticeable on black or reason is black surface, I don't know.

Sorry for the delay. It is RPi3 with ZLF1630.
