Question about E-Machines eView 17f3 17" Flat CRT Monitor

1 Answer

The screen flickers into hour-glass figure.

The screen doesn't flicker like it would when the refresh rate is low,it actually flickers very quickly in a split second motion that makesthe entire display that I'm looking at distort into an hour glassfigure. The browser that I was looking at right now as I typed waswarped into an hour glass figure and I could see the black empty spaceof the screen surrounding the "hour glass".
It's a CRT monitor, 17 in screen eView 17f3 model 786N and it'shonestly scaring the **** out of me every time it does it. Maybe I'mparanoid but I think it might explode.

    Thanks for such a quick response!

    Will anything happen if I just leave it be?
    How much longer do I have until something happens such as the screen going out completely?

    Is there anything I can do to extend the life of the monitor tube as long as possible until I get a new one?

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.

    It won't hurt the computer, or blowup. It will probably just stay the same or go flat line at sometime in the future.

    There is a monitor setting to adjust it, but it most likely won't hold.

    Nothing to help extend it, powering it off/on is probably the harshest thing to do. So, leave it on as much as possible.

My screen keeps flickering and its only two weeks old


Step 1 Change the refresh rate to match the capabilities of your monitor. The refresh rate is a measurement of how many times the screen redraws each second. Although this setting is related to older, desktop monitors, it can affect the quality of the Liquid Crystal Displays found in laptops. Right-click the desktop and choose "Screen Resolution," then click "Advanced Settings" and "Monitor." If enabled, place a check beside "Hide Modes That This Monitor Cannot Display" and choose a higher refresh rate from the list.
Step 2
Update your graphics card drivers. This is the most likely cause if you've always had a problem with flicker. Look for "Hardware and Sound" in the Control Panel and click "Device Manager." Under "Display Adapters," you'll see the exact brand and model of your video card. Go to the manufacturer's driver Web page and search for this model to download the appropriate drivers. Alternatively, you can revert to an older driver if the flicker began immediately after an update. In this case, return to the Device Manager, right-click your adapter and then "Driver." Click "Roll Back Driver" and "Yes" to confirm.
Step 3 Turn on Vertical Sync if the flicker occurs when DirectX or OpenGL is in use, for example, while playing a PC game. Vertical Sync, or VSync, locks the refresh rate of the application to the refresh rate of the monitor. Horizontal flicker is reduced, which improves image quality. For Nvidia cards, VSync is found in "Manage 3D Settings." For Intel, look for "3D Settings" or "Asynchronous Flip." On ATI/AMD cards, turn on "Wait for Vertical Refresh."
Step 4
Lower and raise the laptop screen repeatedly to determine if the flicker is related to movement. Hardware failure is the likely cause when flicker occurs only when the laptop moves. Most likely, the screen cable is loose or damaged, but the inverter and backlight can also cause this problem. The laptop needs to be opened in order to confirm the problem, but do not attempt this unless you are familiar with PC repair and do not mind voiding the warranty. For the best results, take the laptop to a licensed technician or send it back to the manufacturer.

The refresh rate is too low. Configure the driver to use a higher refresh rate.

My monitor compaq model MV520 is always blinking every time I open my computer, How can I fix it?.


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to answer and solve your problem. Your Compaq MV520 Monitor is always blinking every time you turn on your computer and you want to know how you can fix it? First, we need to troubleshoot the problem. I'm thinking you probably need to refresh the flicker rate on your monitor. The flicker rate is probably set on a low setting, which is causing you screen to blink (flicker). This can be bad for your health as well because it can cause eyestrain and headaches. Your monitor is a CRT (Cathode-Ray Tube) model. These types of monitors can cause a lot of screen flickering. Now that we've troubleshooted the problem, now it's time to solve the problem. There are two ways you can solve this problem. You can either refresh the flicker rate or you can buy an LCD monitor. LCD monitors flicker-free. My suggestion is that you refresh the screen flicker rate. To refresh the flicker rate, go into your System Preferences or Control Panel, click your operating system's appearance and display link and click your screen adjustment link. You may have to click your advanced settings link. Click your monitor tab and from there adjust you screen refresh rate. You may have to adjust your screen resolution before you refresh the screen rate. If you have to do this, make sure the screen resolution you choose supports you monitor's height and width as well as visibility. The higher the resolution, the higher the screen rate. The instructions I'm giving you may sound like this because I'm not sure what your operating system is. I'm not to familiar with Mac Operating Systems, but if you have a Windows Operating System and you need better detailed instructions, just reply back. I hope this decreases your screen flickering and gives you a better viewing experience.

Please check the refresh rate of the display. If it is more than 60Mhz, it could cause your LCD to flicker.

Go to your display options and adjust the refresh rate.

If that does not fix it, it could be a possible problem with video card.

Try updating the driver software for the integrated video card.

Good Luck Kumpadre!

Flickering is caused by the incorrect refresh rate being used by your graphics card, go into the graphics settings by right clicking your desktop and choose the correct resolution and refresh rate dependant on the screen size and options.

Screen flickers


If you are using your comuter with batteries and have your screen in low brightness may be the tube is damaged and the low brightness is giving you probles. Try setting the screen brigther and see how it goes.

You can also try to locate the FL-inverter board. It is a single PCB and should be just below the TFT.
Disconnect and reconnect the incoming and outgoing connectors a few times. But please be very careful not to damage the cables or connectors.
