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.

Try changing the refresh rate, you could be getting flickering from your lights if the refresh rate is close to 50Hz.

Hope this helps! :D

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. TRYING ALL THE OPTIONS DOES NOT CAUSE ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR PC OR MONITOR. Just pick the setup that suits you.

Screen flickers badly at the resolution i want to use and no option to alter refresh rate - any ideas?


I assume you're using windows XP or Vista ? The OS uses data from the monitor to tell it resolutions and refresh rates supported. If you get flicker and cannot alter the refresh rate, it is because the monitor will not supprt a fatsre refresh rate. Your only option, unfortunately, is to get a new monitor, or the cheaper option, use a different resolution.
