Lcd screen is flickering on and off very fast


Disconnect the lcd from the computer. Turn on the LCD and see if it still flickers fast. If it doesn't then go ahead reconnect the lcd back to the computer. If its still flickering, then go ahead and hook it up to another laptop or desktop. If it doesn't flicker on another computer then that means there is a problems with the video card on the original computer.
If it still flickers then that means the lcd is bad and would need to be replaced.

Monitor flickers with lines across screen


screen is going bad which is why its flickering and has the lines across the screen. Theres a board behind the lcd and when that doesn't process the voltage properly it can cause the screen to flicker. White lines across the screen means the screen is going bad. At this point unless your monitor is under warranty, go ahead and replace it.

Auto adjustment locked and picture is fliker


Its not auto adjusting because of the flickering. Its flickering because the screen itself is losing voltage so it cant stay on. You can try hooking up the monitor to another computer just to rule out a bad video card but it looks like replacing the LCD is the only solution.

If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed VIEWSONIC monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

The monitor is going down. If I take out the current and put it back then it works but only for a limited (irregular) time then shutting down again


You may have a faulty inverter board or defective CCFL lamp. A faulty CCFL lamp may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering and/or with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. Usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter board can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

W2753v screen flicker - refresh


Hi
What causes monitor screen to flicker?
Answer
keep electronics away from your computer. Mobie phones etc. can distort the image shown on the screen for periods of time, usually when a text or call is coming through.

Answer
A nearby device can cause stray magnetic fields that will cause the display to be affected.
A problem inside the monitor will cause the display to have problems.
If somebody turns on their monitor nearby, the monitor's degaussing when it starts up will cause your monitor to dance wildly for a moment or two.

Answer well one major cause can be the weakness of the electron gun that fire electrons on the silicon plate (pixels) that produces image on the screen so there must be some problem in electron gun in my view

Well, this problem is going to only get worse. You can probably send it back to the manufacturer if you still have a warantee, but if you can't just buy a new monitor.

Monitor flashing


I have a similar problem with my screen, same one, 15". For a period of two years it would turn black for an instant and resume functioning. Since two weeks it only flashes the picture for an instant and then turns black again. We opened it up to check the wiring but nothing wrong there. We are 99.99% sure that the problem is in the screen itself and has nothing to do with drivers or anything else in the computer.
If you bought it less than 3 years ago and since it is probably a result of faulty construction, it should fall under warranty (by european law).
I am going to take mine to a repairman tomorrow, i will inform you wether the screen can be repaired or not.

Greetings,
Rengenier.
