Does squeezing the LCD bezel above or below the line cause the line to change? If so, it's possibly a damaged LCD panel. Otherwise it's possibly a bad cable.

No the line doesn't move when I press the bezel above and below. So wouls it be a faulty cable

Are you still in warranty? If so, contact technical support in your country.

If not you can attempt to repair it yourself by replacing the LCD cable first.

According to the parts list, part number is 04W4124.

But I am not 100% sure if it's correct if some panels come with a different LCD cable with the E530. But this is the only one that is shipped individually.
