HI Bernard,

This sounds to me like the video lead is loose. Could you please try the video lead each end and tighten the locking screws if possible.

Regards

Nick

It's the tube going out. You need to replace it. If you want to stay with CRT monitors, you should be able to pickup a used one for around $10.00 on Craigslist.

  1. Flickering screen display

    Flickering on the screen can be caused by defective hardware in the computer or by improperly installed software, but it can also be caused by interference from external devices. The following examples describe situations in which your screen could start flickering:
    • Screen starts flickering because of interference caused by devices which generate magnetic fields, for instance:
      • a TV set
      • a laser printer
      • another monitor
      • fluorescent lights
      • hidden power lines
    • Apart from interference, an incorrect setting in your system CMOS setup can also cause flickering. On some systems it is possible to distinguish between interlaced and non-interlaced monitors. The setup of your system should always be colour non-interlaced.
    • Proximity to the monitor of fans, air-conditioning units or other devices with rotating motors.
    • The number of devices using power from the same electrical line. Are you overloading the plug?
    • Monitor placed on an unstable surface.
    • Improper video drivers, this is a software problem, see section B
    • An improperly configured or a defective video card.


  2. Reinstalling the video drivers

    1. Start the computer.
    2. Click Start, select Settings, and click Control Panel.
    3. Double-click the System icon.
    4. Select the Device Manager tab in the System Properties window.
    5. Make sure that View devices by type is selected and locate Display adapters and Monitor in the list.
    6. Click the plus sign (+) in front of both items to get a list of installed devices.
    7. You need to remove every device by highlighting it and clicking the Remove button and OK when the warning message appears.
    8. After doing so for both items, they should disappear from the list.
    9. Close the Device Manager by clicking OK, and you will return to the Control Panel.
    10. Double-click the Add New Hardware icon.
    11. Click Next, select Yes when it asks "Do you want Windows to search for your new hardware?", and click Next twice to start searching for new hardware.
    12. This will take a few minutes and, after it is finished, you will have to restart the computer. Windows 95 or higher will automatically set up the correct monitor and video drivers.
    13. If the screen is still flickering, click Start, select Settings, and click Control Panel.
    14. Double-click the Display icon and select the Refresh tab.
    15. Change the Monitor Refresh Rates until the flickering disappears.
    16. If the flickering remains, go to step C.


  3. Troubleshooting

    1. If it is possible, connect a different monitor to the computer. If the flickering disappears, it is a fair indication that the monitor is defective, otherwise go to the next step.
    2. Set up the computer and the monitor on a different place in your house. If the flickering disappears now, it is most likely an interference caused by something in the original location. Check for devices which can cause interference.
    3. If the flickering persists, check the setup of your system. If available in the setup, make sure that the option Monitor Type is configured as Colour Non-Interlaced.

A few months ago my LG Flatron L1900R monitor started flickering when I boot up my computer. It has become worse, to the point where it now flickers constantly.


From the information desribed, this means that your CRT monitor is going dead. Unfortuntly, there is no way to stop the flickering unless the monitor was replaced. I hope this has helped

Hi There, When I turn on my emachines D620 lab top the screen does not come on. It seems that the lab top is booting correctly but no screen. Can you help with this problem?


I would like to understand if the screen atleast flicker when the system is turned on. Is the screen power led lit on or flickering. In case you have no signal on the screen or no blinking also, you may have to get the lap for a HW repair as it could be a lap monitor HS issue. Else it should show atleast the initial screen while boot up as the screen would be working with the basic Bios Instructions which doesnt have any driver or complicated OS Code to run the screen. So ideally it should work at the initial stage of Bios to confirm that the screen has no hardware issue. Good Luck.

Dell 2005FPW Monitor Flicker problem


The flickering is most likely the florescent backlight having a hard time starting, Just like in a light fixture, as it gets old, it takes longer to warm up to get full functionality.
If under warranty, contact Dell for a replacement, if not, then when it becomes untenable, replace the monitor. Prices are dropping drastically, an new 20 or 22 In can be bought for about $150 or less

Crackling and flickering of monitor continuosly


somehow i dont think theres anything you can do for it, judging by what you said, the overload was way too much for the screen 

so, solution, get another screen, and get a decent surge protector, might not do much but it may prevent this from happeneing again

hope this helps
