    Please turn off your CAPS LOCK. Posting in all capitals is considered
    shouting, rude and is hard to read.

    If this "line" is not a crayon mark (sarcasm) and it wasn't there when
    you bought the monitor, take it back for repair/replacement if it is
    still under warranty.

    I wasn't judging, I was offering friendly advise.

    Is this a faint horizontal line exactly halfway up the screen?

    If so it may well be part of the internal construction of the CRT. Sony use
    a type of CRT called a 'Trinitron' that uses fine vertical wires inside to
    'mask' the colour stripes on the screen. Because these wires are relatively
    long a horizontal wire is placed halfway up the screen to tie the middle's
    together and stop them moving.

    For some people the line is just to annoying and they end up swapping their
    monitors for one using the more usual Shadow Mask technology.



    Re the 'Upper Case' (and with the greatest respect)

    From http://www.dpi.qld.gov.au/discussiongroups/805.html

    Using upper-case and text layout
    Write your message in upper and lower-case. All capitals is more difficult
    to read, and can be interpreted as if you are shouting your message.

    Cheers

    Trinitron monitors have two wires, not one.

    Monitor screen size, model number?

    If it's a Trinitron screen, it needs 1 or more horizontal wires to hold
    the vertical grille wires in place.

    Think of it like a BBQ rack, a lot of wires running in 1 direction and
    it needs some supporting wires at the top/bottom edges.
    http://www.crowncookware.com/images/bbq-grill.jpg

    Depends on screen size, For 17/21" range 2 wires approx 1/3rd down down
    fron the top, 1/3rd up from the bottom. While 15" screens can have only
    1.

    Better yet, some references after a bit of www.google.com ,
